Data allows us to provide a personalized experience to different people, and to learn new things and improve our service. Examples of the types of data we collect include: the content you provide when you post, like or comment, your connections, your transactions, and your usage of our products. We also collect information that other people provide about you, like when they tag you in a photo. We also collect information from your device, such as identifiers, cookies, and information you can control using your device settings, including your camera, microphone and different kinds of location information, along with information from our partners, like websites you visit, apps you use or purchases you make.

We also collect data in our ongoing effort to promote security, integrity, and safety, and in our efforts to detect and prevent spam.
