You may also have the opportunity to provide the email addresses or mobile phone numbers of friends or family members to tell them about the Service.

Mobile device identification information
When you connect to the Service on your internet-enabled mobile device, if your service provider uniquely identifies the device, Yowza!! will receive this information. Yowza!! may use your unique mobile device identification information to offer you extended services and/or functionality. Certain Yowza!! services may require our collection from you of the phone number for your device. Additionally, through the use of your mobile phone, we may collect your phone number and/or name. We may associate that information to the mobile device identification information and to other information we have collected from and about you; however we will not use that number for telemarketing.

Some mobile phone service providers are required to operate a system that will pinpoint the physical location of devices that use their service. Depending on the provider, Yowza!! may automatically receive this information.
As part of the standard operation of the Service, we may collect certain non-personal information from you. For example, when you use the Service, your mobile phone automatically records and sends basic information about your use to Yowza!!.

We may combine this non-personal information with your personal information.
