If you decide to register through or otherwise grant us access to a third-party service, we may collect information that is already associated with your third-party service's account, such as your name, your electronic mail address, your activities, or your contact list associated with that account.

You may also have the option of sharing additional information with Matchery through your third-party service's account. If you choose to provide such information, during registration or otherwise, you are giving Matchery permission to use, share, and store it in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Cookies and Analytics

Our website uses cookies, which are small text files that are stored on the device you use to navigate our website. Cookies may collect information such as the pages your visit on our website, your web address, the type of browser, device or hardware you use, search terms, advertising identifier, mobile network information, and IP-based geography location. This information helps us recognize you the next time you visit our website so we can customize your next experience with us. You can set your browser to reject and/or remove cookies at any time.

We may use third party tracking tools provided by third-party service providers to help us collect and analyze information about your use of our website. We use this information to improve our website and your experience while on our website.

Although third-party analytics tools store a cookie on your machine to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our website, the cookie typically cannot be used by anyone but that third party. Some of these third-party service providers may collect information from our website for retargeting and interest-based advertising. Some third-party service providers may also build a profile of users’ online browsing activities.
