In this case, we will collect and store your name, email address, location, gender, education, work history, interests, and other information from your Facebook profile.

During the initial signup as well as in other places on Silp, you can provide additional data (e.g., skills, interests, job preferences).
Silp records certain requests and transactions in log files. This log data is used for troubleshooting, statistics, quality assurance, and to monitor system security and can be analyzed to that end.

Silp can publish anonymous statistics under the condition that no personally identifiable information can be derived from such statistics.
