Paro may request or otherwise collect information that identifies you as a specific individual or business and can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Examples of Personal Information may include your name, email address, postal address, phone number, certain payment information (such as credit card or other financial account information and billing address). Paro may also collect Personal Information such as your date of birth or taxpayer identification number, to validate your identity or as may be required by law, such as to complete tax filings. Paro may request documents to verify this information, such as a copy of your government-issued identification or photo or a billing statement.
Paro’s services are intended for users eighteen (18) and older. Paro does not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone younger than age eighteen (18). If Paro becomes aware that a child younger than eighteen (18) has provided Paro with Personal Information, Paro will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from our files. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child younger than age eighteen (18) and believe that Paro has collected Personal Information from your child, please contact us at: email@example.com.
Paro may also collect other information, such as zip codes, demographic data, and general project-related data (“Non-Identifying Information”). Paro may aggregate information collected from users. Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables you to be identified (for example, combining information with your name). But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information. Paro may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information, but Paro will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
