What data is collected and how is it used when I create an account?

If you choose to open a user account, we will collect your name and email address. Usage of this data is limited to: (i) syncing your extension settings across browsers and devices, (ii) serving as your login credentials, (iii) communicating directly to you through your email address to give you information about our products, updates and upgrades.

Note that no account needs to be created to use Ghostery; it is simply an option to make things more convenient for the user.
