The effective date of this Agreement is June 5, 2008.
This website allows people to share information with each other and the broader community. To accomplish this, we gather information from and about users and share it with others, as described in more detail below.
1. Information We Collect
We collect information that you submit in the process of creating or editing your account and user profile on this website (your "Profile Information"), including your name, email address, and optional information supplied by you such as identities maintained by you with other services such as ICQ and AIM. We also collect information in the form of the content that you submit in the course of your use of this website (your "Content"), such as messages, photos, comments and other communications made by you. If, for example, you choose to post a message that includes your home address and phone number, that becomes a part of the data "collected" because you provided it. Finally, we also collect other information relating to your activity on this website that you do not explicitly submit to us (your "Nonpersonal Information"), such as your actions on this website, your browser, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp.
2. How We Use Your Information
We store information about you and your use of this website, including your Content, Profile Information, and Nonpersonal Information. In addition, we display your Content to other users of this website in order to share your Content with other members and the broader community. Your Profile Information (excluding your email address and other information you choose not to have displayed) may also be displayed in connection with your Content.
We may use your email address to send you updates or news regarding this website as part of a general communication to members. Additionally, we use your email address to contact you individually about issues with your account or other matters related to your use of this website.
We use Nonpersonal Information to help us diagnose problems with our server, administer this website, and otherwise provide the highest possible level of service to you. In addition, we use Nonpersonal Information to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, their advertising banners.
3. Transfer of Information
We will not sell or distribute your Content or your Profile Information to third parties except under circumstances described below. We may grant permission to third parties to republish your Content and associated Profile Information (excluding your email address) in a "testimonial" context such as posting a review made by you on a business' website or in printed form.
We may disclose information about you and your use of this website if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to avoid liability, to comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order, or to protect our rights and property, or that of our affiliates or the public. We are not required to question or contest the validity of any search warrant, subpoena or other similar governmental request that we receive.
4. Others' Information
You may choose to provide us with another person's email address so that person may be invited to create an account on this website. We use this information to contact and, if necessary, remind that person about the invitation. We may disclose such information if required to do so in order to comply with legal process, as described above.
This website may contain links to third party websites to which we have no affiliation. Except as set forth herein, we do not share information about you and your use of this website with those third parties, and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We suggest you read the privacy policies on all such third party websites.
7. Controlling Your Personal Information
You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose information about yourself in the Content that you submit to this website (e.g., including your name or email address in a post to this website), that information can be collected, correlated, and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from others. Such activities are beyond our control. Please do not post any personal information on this website that you expect to keep private.
As a registered Buzz Site user, you can modify or delete your Profile Information at any time by accessing the "Profile" section of this website. Deletions are subject to administrator confirmation as a means to prevent accidental deletion.
You hereby acknowledge that Bet-R is not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.
This website is not directed to children, and Bet-R does not knowingly solicit information from any child under the age of 18. Should a child whom we know to be under 18 send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or a parent or guardian) to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personal information.
