Personal Information Collection and Use
Personal information is information that can be used to identify or contact one (1) person.
We may also combine that information with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content and advertising. You are not required to provide personal information that we requested, but in many cases we cannot offer our products or services to answer any questions you may have.
Here are some examples of the types of personal information we collect and how we use it.
What personal information do we collect?
- When you create a LAYER AVENUE account, purchase a product or service, communicate with us or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, postal address, landline and mobile phone, email, address and contact preferences.
