The Site and the App employ the use of "cookies," web beacons, and log file information to: (a) store information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your next session; (b) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (c) track your submissions and activity (eg: how many frames each GIF contains, how many GIFs have been shared, etc). This information is solely used to improve the App.
