Looxcie collects two types of data about users: (1) information that you or others voluntarily submit to us (described below under“User-Supplied Information”) and (2) technical data automatically collected from all visitors to the Looxcie Service (described below under“Automatically Collected Data”).
User-Supplied Information: In using the Looxcie Service, for example when you create an account with us, or if you send us an email, you will provide Looxcie with data generally called “personally identifiable” information. If you choose to provide such information, you are giving Looxcie permission to use and store that information consistent with this policy. Additionally, please know that when you create an account or sign in to the Looxcie Service, you are not anonymous to us.
Automatically Collected Data: The Looxcie Service operating on a website automatically logs non-personally identifiable information such as Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), a unique user ID, the content and pages that you access on the Looxcie Service and the dates and times that you visit the Looxcie Service. In addition, if you come to the Looxcie Service via a link from another site, we may also track the source of that link.

You should check your Facebook settings to change the information sent to us through Facebook Connect.
