From time to time, some.im may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
some.im also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users making payments on BuyMeACoffee.com. some.im only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that payee IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of some.im and is handled by payment processors at the time of processing the payments.
To make a payment to a creator on some.im, you have to provide our payment processor (Stripe) with your payment information.

If you provide them with a name and email address then they also provide us with that information.
We collect and process information about the creators you support, the level at which you support them, what rewards you receive and how often you support them.
Certain visitors to some.im's websites choose to interact with some.im in ways that require some.im to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that some.im gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at BuyMeACoffee.com to provide a username and email address.

In each case, some.im collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with some.im. some.im does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
