How We Use Your Information
We may also use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyse Service usage, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customise the Site’s content, layout, and services. These uses improve the Service and better tailor it to meet your needs, so as to provide you with a smooth, efficient, safe and customised experience while using the Service.
What Information Do We Collect?
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customised experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customise our service to make your experience safer and easier. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
In general, you can browse the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Once you become a registered User of the Service, we require you to provide various contact and identity information and other personal information as indicated on the relevant forms on the Site, and you are no longer anonymous to us. Where possible, on these forms we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. In addition, as you use the Service, you can from time to time enter or send to us personal information. Here is a list of the personal information that we ask you to provide when you create your account: name, avatar, IP address, email address, your chosen password, your latitude & longitude (based on IP or GPS from your mobile device, if applicable) and your social network ID (name from facebook, twitter, etc).
You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to become a User or by not using the particular feature of the Service for which the information is being collected.
We also automatically track certain information about you based upon your behaviour using our Service. We use this information to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behaviour to better understand, protect and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our Site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our Site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address.
Following your registration on the Service, you can review and change your information in your account area. If you disclose personal information using the Service and wish to have it removed, please contact us at the support contact information posted on the Site.
Our Disclosure of Your Information
We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties without your explicit consent. The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed in the normal scope of business to provide our services:
Anonymised Aggregated Data. We aggregate and anonymise data and use and disclose such information for a variety of purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose any information that could be used to identify you personally.
Public Areas of the Service. All of your activities in the public areas of the Service will be identifiable to your User ID and avatar, and other people can see your published content.
Subsidiaries and Affiliates; Service Providers. We may from time to time use the services of affiliates, subsidiaries and unrelated service providers in the operation of the Service, and may disclose personal information to them in the course of our use of their services. For example, we may use the services of third-party hosting companies to host the operation of the Service. This may involve the hosting of data, including personal information, on servers operated by those hosting companies. We take care to use only service providers that we believe are reputable and able to live up to our and your expectations, including about the handling of confidential information.
Legal Requests; Emergencies. We cooperate with law enforcement inquiries and demands for information that are made under force of law. We are also cognizant of the need to address emergencies. Therefore, we may provide personal information in what we believe to be emergency situations, and we may provide personal information where required by statute, court order, legal process or lawful authority, and to our legal counsel. In some cases, personal information that we collect may be stored or processed outside the UK, and may therefore be subject to the legal jurisdiction of those countries.
Buzzcast Media Ltd. strives to protect your personal information. For security of transactions, we use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any personal information you enter into registration forms on the Service. The encryption process protects your information, by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer. We also make commercially reasonable effort to ensure the security of your personal information on our system. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
