We may collect and store both Non-Personally-Identifying information and Personally-Identifying Information from you. “Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person or entity. “Personally-Identifying Information” or “PII” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person or entity.
If you are located in a country in the European Union or elsewhere outside the United States of America, by using the Service, you specifically consent to the transmission and storage of your PII and Stuff into the United States of America.

When we register your account upon a request from your Organization, or when you register yourself as part of your Organization, you may be asked to disclose Personally-Identifying Information including without limitation, your name, phone number, work/personal email address and business/work street address. You may also choose to submit Personally-Identifying Information to us when you send us an email or use any interactive features that we may make available on the Service. For example, you may submit help desk tickets from your various email addresses or provide personal information in response to security questions when setting up your account.
