All personal information supplied to Bizcommunity is kept strictly confidential and will not be sold to any third parties. All information viewed in Secure Services is protected through 128 bit encryption.
Be assured that Bizcommunity will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent, except in aggregated form, as explained below. However, Bizcommunity reserves the right to disclose member information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Bizcommunity 's rights or property, other members, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Bizcommunity also reserves the right to disclose member information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Bizcommunity collects and shares aggregate information about our members with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. For example, we will say Bizcommunity 's audience is X percent females and Y percent males. This data is used to customise Bizcommunity 's content and advertising to deliver a better experience for our members and will in no way personally identify you.
There are cases where we may ask you for personal information such as your name, email address, and birth date. For example, we request personal information when you register for a Bizcommunity account, for transactions, or for services that require registration or subscription. Bizcommunity needs to collect this information for fulfilling services, tracking/verifying compliance with Bizcommunity policies and applicable law and/or for purposes of editorial content and decisions. In addition, we may request your credit card information to bill you for membership fees or other services or products offered for sale through Bizcommunity or certain third party vendors. We may provide this credit card information to such third party vendors if necessary to complete your requested transaction.
Furthermore, we may use your personal information to send you periodic communications, solicit your feedback, provide you with special offers, or for other purposes and to customise the services we provide to you. At the bottom of every communication, Bizcommunity provides a link that can be used to opt out of receiving any communications from us.
In case you choose to delete or change some of the information you have provided to us, you can do so at the Member Details page accessible from out front page.
USE OF IP ADDRESS
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers -- the big computers that "serve up" Web pages -- automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our members' needs.
You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers. Bizcommunity does not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES/ "PUBLIC" AREAS
Members should be aware that when you are on Bizcommunity, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from Bizcommunity pages that take you outside our service. These other sites may send their own cookies to members, collect data or solicit personal information. The privacy policies of these other sites may significantly differ from that of Bizcommunity. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites and cannot guarantee the security of any of your personal information collected there.
Protecting the security of all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We take reasonable precautions to ensure the security of your information on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Bizcommunity strives to protect its members' personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information.
Your Bizcommunity is password protected so that only you can access it and view the member information relevant to the account. In registering for the Bizcommunity services, you agreed not to divulge your password to anyone. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.
Remember to sign out of your Bizcommunity account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This will ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet café.
Bizcommunity does not knowingly collect information from minors. If you are under 18, please do not provide any personal information to us.
