iShare Textbooks works with analytics service providers to provide us with information regarding traffic on the Services, including the pages viewed and the actions users take when visiting the Services.
1. Registration and Other Information You Provide
The Services may collect "Personal Information" (which is information that can be used to identify or contact a specific individual, such as your name, email address and contact information), account information (such as a password or other information that helps us confirm that it is you accessing your account). We DO NOT collect payment information (typically, credit card account information) if you choose to purchase products or services through the Services, as Payments are handled by Pay Pal. If you use the Services that may necessitate payment from iShare Textbooks to you like sharing your books, we may collect additional information from you, such as your bank information (if you opt to collect the money via bank wire transfer), as necessary to facilitate payment and to comply with related legal obligations. Any information combined with Personal Information will be treated as Personal Information.

You may have the opportunity to create a profile, which consists of information about you, which may include Personal Information, your use of the Services and other information ("Profile"). iShare Textbooks does not share your contact information (email, full postal address or phone number) with book sellers and users sharing books so they can mail the book(s) to you. In addition, the Services may allow members to communicate and collaborate with each other, including some Services that allow members to engage in one-on-one communication to share the book(s). We allow other users to use contact information they have about you, such as your email address, to find you for sharing books

The Services may offer referral features whereby users may use an email tool to invite friends to use the Services using a one-time email. iShare Textbooks stores this information for the purpose of verification, as well as tracking the success of our referral program. iShare Textbooks will not use those referred email addresses for any other purpose.

In addition, we automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier ("Device Identifier") for any computer, mobile phone or other device (any, a "Device") you may use to access the Services.

Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access a Service. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Information.
