  5. Your Stylinity Account. For some activities on Stylinity, like uploading photographs or videos, posting comments, flagging images or videos, or watching restricted images and videos, you need a Stylinity Account. We ask for some personal information when you create an account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access. A Stylinity Account will allow you to access other Stylinity services that require registration.

If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your Stylinity Account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery. If you connect your Stylinity account with other social media accounts, that information will also be recorded.

Your personal information will never be divulged without your express consent, but information that you have shared publicly can be accessed and used by other individuals or companies whose products you are wearing and have chosen to share publicly. If you are a Stylinity StylePerksTM member, this will benefit you personally if it leads others to make purchases.
