Your first name, email address and password, or a third party account, when you register for a Covet account.
Profile information that you provide for your user profile, including but not limited to your first name, picture, location, and phone number.
User content, including but not limited to photos, comments, and other materials that you post on the application.

Third-party analytics tools are used to measure traffic and usage trends in Covet. These tools collect information sent by your device, including but not limited to the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists in the improvement of user experience and application functionality.
Cookies and similar technologies:
Cookies and similar technologies, such as pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use Covet and provide features to you.
Log file information:
Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app. It can also be provided when the content of the webpage or app is downloaded to your browser or device.
Covet’s servers automatically record certain log file information, including but not limited to your web requests, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring/exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, and how you interact with links, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. Similar information may be collected from emails sent to users which then help to track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the user experience and application functionality.
When you use a mobile device, such as a tablet or phone to access Covet, Covet reserves the right access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Covet.
A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use Covet and may help to provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Covet may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with user content. For example, metadata can describe how, when, and by whom a piece of user content was collected and how that content is formatted.
Users can add or may have metadata added to their user content, including but not limited to product colors, size, fit, geotag (i.e., location marker of the product), comments, or other data. This makes your user content more searchable by others and more interactive. If you geotag your photo or tag your photo using other’s APIs then, your geolocation will be stored with the photo and the dress then searchable.
