The amount and type of information we gather depends upon your use of the Topic’it Website / Topic’it Connect / Topic’it Mobiles Applications and, in some cases, what type of information you choose to disclose. We may collect the following information from you:

Information provided by you to Topic’it

We collect the information that you voluntarily give us.
