Purpose of Data Collection

Information You Provide Directly to Us When you use the Services or engage in certain activities such as creating an Account with Figma, we may ask you to provide some or all of the following types of information: Account Information When you create an Account we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, personal website, and picture (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “Personal Information”). We may also collect certain information that is not Personal Information because it cannot be used by itself to identify you. Information Collected Using Cookies We collect certain information through the use of “cookies,” which are small text files that are saved by your browser when you access our Services. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to identify that you’ve logged in to the Services and to tell us how and when you interact with our Services. We may also use cookies to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on our Services and to customize and improve our Services. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted when you log off from the Services and close your browser. Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies. Please note, however, that if you don’t accept cookies, you may not be able to access all portions or features of the Services. Some third-party services providers that we engage (including third-party advertisers) may also place their own cookies on your browser. Note that this Privacy Policy covers only our use of cookies and does not include use of cookies by such third parties. Information Related to Use of the Services Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our Services (we refer to this information as “Log Data”), including both Account holders and non-Account holders (either, a “User”). Log Data may include information such as a User’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, operating system, the web page that a User was visiting before accessing our Services, the pages or features of our Services to which a User browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services that a User clicked on and other statistics. We use this information to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) this information to improve and enhance the Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences. We may use a person’s IP address to fight spam, malware and identity theft. We also use IP addresses to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how our Services are used. We may, with your permission, collect information about your operating system’s installed fonts in connection with providing the Services to you. Combined with other system information, this information could be used to give your computer a unique fingerprint/signature and enable us to track your usage of our Services after you log out. Location Information In some cases we collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP address into a rough geolocation. We may use location information to improve and personalize our Services for you. Meetups and/or Conferences If you participate in conferences or meetup events, whether organized by Figma or a third-party, Figma may collect or obtain, and retain information you provide in connection with signing up and/or participating in that event.
