"These days, whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other
internet service, there’s certain information that almost always gets
created and recorded automatically. The same is true when you use our
products. Here are some of the types of information we collect:
- Log data. When you use Pinterest, our servers automatically
record information (“log data”), including information that your browser
sends whenever you visit a website or your mobile app sends when you’re
using it. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the
address of the web pages you visited that had Pinterest features,
browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you
used Pinterest, and cookie data.
- Cookie data. Depending on how you’re accessing our products, we may
use “cookies” (a small text file sent by your computer each time you
visit our website, unique to your Pinterest account or your browser) or
“session” cookies (that last until you close your browser) or
“persistent” cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them).
other Pinterest settings so you don‘t have to set them up every time you
visit Pinterest. Some of the cookies we use are associated with your
Pinterest account (including personal information about you, such as the
email address you gave us), and other cookies are not.
- Device information. In addition to log data, we may also collect
information about the device you’re using Pinterest on, including what
type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device
settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect
some or all of this information often depends on what type of device
you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of
information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a
PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what
information your device makes available to us, please also check the
policies of your device manufacturer or software provider."
