String Labs collects and stores the information you directly provide to us. This includes your email, and a username/password of your choosing. Your email address is never shared but may be used for things like password reset or other critical account notifications and also for optional notifications that can be disabled. String Labs also uses Google Analytics for site traffic insights.
