We posed these questions to Foursquare:


Can you correct or update your Personally Identifiable Information (PII) if you want to? Does the site tell you how to do this?

Sort of. Your password, phone, email can be updated through user settings page.


What counts as personally identifiable information (PII) that the site collects?

The following are regarded as personally identifiable information: Name, email, phone, birthday, Twitter/Facebook user names, browser information, location, IP, cookie info.

The company does not  distinguish between personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.


Does the privacy policy mention national or international privacy laws?

Yes. It mentions US federal and state courts for international users.
