We may also collect data from other sites you visit and other apps on your device. We collect and track data on the sites you visit, ads displayed to you and purchase data. This includes, without limitation: your online purchases; your visits and interactions with Influencers (as defined below); your screenshot data; your “likes”; your visits and interaction with the “Discover”, “Wish List”, “Feed” and/or other tabs on the Apps as they may be available; how many times an ad has been served to you; what page an ad was served; and whether you interacted with the ad.
