We collect this information in several ways, including the following:
- Cookies: Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences.

- Public Posting: If you post in the comments of a v-log post on the Website (or anywhere on social media), you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. Cutting Edge is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. For example, if you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by enabling certain user features, (such as comments) Cutting Edge will collect that information from your interaction and the information will be publicly available.
