Privacy Policy
  • 1. Introduction

SG Buzz takes the private nature of your personal information very seriously. This Privacy Policy applies whenever you access our website or use products and services provided by SG Buzz. Please read this Privacy Policy very carefully.

This Privacy Policy describes:

  1. What information we collect, how we collect it and why;
  2. How we use the information and with whom we share it;
  3. How you can access and update that information;
  4. The choices you can make about how we collect, use and share your information; and
  5. How we protect the information we store about you.

If you do not want SG Buzz to collect, store, use or share your information in the ways described in this Privacy Policy, you should not use SG Buzz's products and services.

  • 2. Website Visitors

Like most website operators, SG Buzz collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SG Buzz's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SG Buzz's visitors use its website. From time to time, SG Buzz may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

SG Buzz also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. SG Buzz does not use such information to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

  • 3. Mobile Users

If you access or use SG Buzz's products and services on your mobile device, in addition to your device identifiers, we may also collect:

  • The name you have associated with your device;
  • Your telephone number;
  • Your country; and
  • Your specific geolocation and your mobile contacts.

You may have the ability to import your address book contacts or manually enter them so that you can locate your contacts on SG Buzz or invite them to join SG Buzz. You are responsible for getting your contact's permission when you opt to give their contact details to SG Buzz. We may also get information about you from other SG Buzz users entering in their contacts. We use and may store this information to help you and your contacts connect through SG Buzz.

  • 4. Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to SG Buzz's websites may choose to interact with SG Buzz in ways that require SG Buzz to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SG Buzz gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for SGBuzz.com to provide a username and email address. In each case, SG Buzz collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with SG Buzz. SG Buzz does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

  • 5. Information About You That You Share With SG Buzz Directly

When you use SG Buzz's products and services (whether through a social network or through SG Buzz directly), you may give us information directly (like when you are registering for an account with SG Buzz) and we will store that information on our systems and use it for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

You may also be allowed to create a profile for use on SG Buzz's products or services separate from your social networking site profile that other SG Buzz users can see. Certain information on your SG Buzz profile will be publicly accessible on SG Buzz's website and products such as:

  • Your first and last name; and
  • Your profile picture.
  • 6. Social Media

If you register or access any of our Services on a social network like Facebook, SG Buzz receives certain information about you from the social network automatically. The information we receive depends on the social network, your privacy settings and your friends' privacy settings on that social network.

If you access SG Buzz's Services from a social network, you should also read that social network's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

  • 7. Communication Feature

You may be able to take part in certain activities on SG Buzz that let you communicate or share information not just with SG Buzz, but also with other SG Buzz users. These include but are not limited to:

  • Participating on forums and message boards; and
  • Posting public comments on SG Buzz products and services.

You should also be aware that if you submit information to "chat rooms," "forums" or "message boards" such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications.

  • 8. Aggregated Statistics

SG Buzz may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, SG Buzz does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

  • 9. Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

SG Buzz discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that:

    1. needs to know that information in order to process it on SG Buzz's behalf or to provide services available at SG Buzz's websites, and
    2. have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SG Buzz's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if SG Buzz or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SG Buzz goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of SG Buzz may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, SG Buzz will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SG Buzz discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when SG Buzz believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SG Buzz, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a SG Buzz website and have supplied your email address, SG Buzz may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with SG Buzz and its products.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SG Buzz takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
