What information do we collect from the users?
When registering on our site, as appropriate, we use federated identity based log in mechanism. Federated identity is related to single sign-on (SSO), in which user's single authentication ticket, or token, is trusted across multiple IT systems or even organizations and it would not be possible without some sort of federation. We only collect user name, picture, email from organizations (Google, Facebook) providing the identity - thus we only collect publicly available data.
