Information We Collect From Other Sources
In order to provide you with access to the Service, or to provide you with better service in general, we may combine information obtained from other sources (for example, a third-party service whose application you have authorized or used to sign in) and combine that with information we collect through our services.
Information We Do Not Collect
Trinket needs to know relatively little about our users in order to provide our Service. Therefore, we do not collect sensitive information (i.e., personal information specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information specifying the sex life of the individual). We also do not need to know and do not collect current address, date of birth, legal name, gender identity, etc., all of which constitute personal information unrelated to the provision of our Service.
Trinket is not designed to store official educational records such as student grades or class enrollment.
Notwithstanding the above, the nature of plaintext code is such that users may choose to type any kind of information into the Service. Users are discouraged from entering any sensitive personal information into a computer program or other user-provided content on our site. Trinket is not responsible for sensitive information provided by users using the Service, but will not otherwise collect or store such information outside of providing the Service. Note that all usage of our Services is governed by our Terms of Service and that user-provided content that does not comply with those Terms may be removed.

You may delete all data associated with your Trinket account at any time from your account settings. This data may remain in our automated backup system for up to 30-60 days. It will not be accessed by us or restored except in extraordinary cases requiring the use of emergency database backups.
You may change the potentially personally identifiable information we collect from you, such as your display name, your username, and your email address at any time in your account settings.
