Our third party partners also use Local Shared Objects (LOSs) such as Flash.

User Information may be collected based on your individual use of Boints, based on Boints' ability to access data stored on your computer, or via your interaction with the Boints website at http://www.Theboints.app, including “cookies” stored on your computer and your participation in forums, if any.
The personal data collected or processed through our Services (concerning our End Users or visitors to the Boints mobile application or website) will be used for: (i) creating aggregate data and anonymous data (as specified below), (ii) providing the Services, and (iii) improving and maintaining our Services.
