Android App permissions

Hi Duolingo,

I would like about the permissions the duolingo android app needs... For what do you use "discover known accounts"? Thanks for the information!

Since there is the option to sign up with Duolingo via Google+ or Facebook, this permission allows the app to link to your social account if you choose to do so.

The mobile app now asks for access to my contacts. What's up with that?

I've noticed targeted advertisements in my Duolingo Android app. I wonder what kind of information they gather and how?
