Privacy

We do not rent out, share or sell information you share with us. Fullstop.

We respect your privacy.

We value our relationship with you, and can’t expect you to trust us or want to do business with us if we abuse the information you share with us.

What do we collect?

Depending on what you are doing on the site, we may collect your name, email address, business details, physical and mailing addresses. If you make a purchase we store your shopping history and provide you with Invoices. To make your browsing experience easier, we use cookies to automatically log you in (you have the option to disable this function), and we ask you about your preferences in order to tailor the information we provide to suit you best and to give you the best experience on our web site. From time to time we may request other information for you which may also be stored in our database. Our email newsletter subscriptions are double opt-in and conform to email and database best practice. In some places you will be given the option of providing information (such as about you and your business) and asked if you would like this to be made public, for instance in your public profile or business directory listing. Use of the data will be governed by the selection you have made. Whilst every effort is made to ensure your chosen settings are honoured, we cannot be responsible and are not liable for technical issues which may cause this information to be made public. If the information is sensitive enough for you to be very concerned about it being publicly available, we suggest you don't provide it in this kind of situation.

What do we do with it?

The information we collect is used to provide you with an enhanced browsing experience. For instance, if we know you operate a small business we will provide material relevant to small business; if you operate from home a variety of information about sharing your home with your business will be more readily available. We may also use it to promote your business through our Directory, and when you post comments or blogs or interact in other ways with the web site. If you place an order, we use it to ship your products to you, and if you subscribe to email newsletters we use your information to deliver these to you. Information in polls and surveys may be aggregated and used to lobby government or other bodies or organisations, or to negotiate special deals and offers for the Bizbuzz community as a whole. Your individual information remains anonymous and is never shared in this case.

Sharing your information

We never, ever share information you have given us without your permission. From time to time we run competitions or offers on behalf of a third party. Occasionally these will require your entry to be sent to the third party, and sometimes it is copied to us. In this instance we will notify you, usually in the terms and conditions of entry, that this is the case. We are not responsible for the collection, storage or use of data collected by third parties.

This privacy policy applies to the bizbuzz, smallbizbuzz, homebizbuzz and thedavidawards web sites. We provide links to other web sites but these sites are not governed by our privacy policy and we are not responsible for the content of the site, data collection, storage or use by these sites.
