Any time you visit a Web site, you may be providing information about yourself to the site’s owner or operator. We value your privacy as much as our own, so we want you to learn what you need to know to protect your personal privacy. When you visit or supply information to any Web site, it's a good idea for you to first understand the site's privacy policies. If the site owner doesn't tell you, don't hesitate to ask. The bottom line at our Web site (also referred to generally as the "BUZWAY.COM site") is that we use information that we get from your visit to enable you to participate in and take advantage of the various programs and features presented on the BUZWAY.COM site, for our own internal analysis, and to make the BUZWAY.COM site and our programs and features more safe, useful and interesting to you. We do not use the information that we collect from the BUZWAY.COM site for any other purpose, nor do we share it with any affiliate or third party, except as specifically noted and with agencies, vendors, partners, or affiliates under contract with BUZWAY.COM or BUZWAY, LLC.
What information we collect and how we use it
When you visit the BUZWAY.COM site, we capture your Internet provider's domain name (e.g., 'aol.com') and your IP Address. Note: For users who access the Internet from an Internet Service Provider (ISP), the IP address will be different every time you log on. BUZWAY.COM does not typically associate this information with any individual. We also capture the city and country from where the visit came, the paths taken as you move from page to page (i.e., your "click stream" activity), as well as some browser usage, settings and functionality and other information related to the device used to access the Visa U.S.A site. Information we collect on the BUZWAY.COM site may be used to enhance this Web site in ways like these:
Visa U.S.A. only collects personal information that you choose to provide voluntarily when using or registering with the BUZWAY.COM site. "Personal information" includes information that can identify you, such as:
From time to time, BUZWAY.COM may conduct sweepstakes, contests, games or other promotions, and also conduct surveys through our Web site. If you choose to participate—unless otherwise noted in the applicable rules, terms and conditions, or disclaimers—we may use the information you provide in connection with the administration of the applicable promotion, including for selection and notification of sweepstakes or contest winners and for creation of new promotions, and/or to publish survey results in aggregate on the site. Except where necessary to administer a sweepstakes, contest, game or other promotion, or survey, unless you have otherwise agreed or unless required by law, we will not share or publish any response you give connected to your name or address. We will hold these responses only as anonymous statistics.
When you send us an email, we use your email address to thank you for your comment and/or reply to your question. We store your communication and our reply in case we correspond further. Beyond our initial reply, we will not use your email address to send you any unsolicited message or information, nor will we share it with, or sell it to, anyone else for such use, other than as specified in this policy. When you request information or services, we use your email address and any other information you give us to provide you with the information or services you’ve requested until you ask us to stop (by using the “unsubscribe” instructions provided on each email and/or the Web site where you signed up and/or as we otherwise provide), or until the information or service is no longer available. We will not use your email address or other information to provide you with any unsolicited message or information (unless the message or information is part of the service you are requesting).
Our policy is simple: we do not sell or rent your personal information to any third parties under any circumstances, except in the event of a bankruptcy or reorganization, or a sale of all or substantially all of our assets, as further provided below.
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform services on behalf of BUZWAY.COM, such as (1) administering special reward or other programs affiliated with BUZWAY.COM, or sweepstakes, contests and other promotions, (2) sending emails, (3) providing marketing assistance, and (4) analyzing data. Some of these companies and individuals will have access to the personal information necessary to perform their services, but will not be permitted to use it for any other purpose.
The BUZWAY.COM site displays banners and other advertisements that may be placed by third parties. Such advertisers may collect non-personal information (meaning, information that is not identifiable to any individual) when you click or scan one of their advertisements, by placing cookies on your computer or by using other technology. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any such third parties. In addition, we may share aggregate information about our visitors to third-party ad servers or potential advertisers in order to provide advertisements on BUZWAY.COM about products and services that may be of interest to you.
Business transfers If a third party acquires all or substantially all of our assets, your personal information, aggregated information, and any other information that we have collected on the BUZWAY.COM site may be transferred to such third party as part of our business assets. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered one of our assets and may be sold or transferred to third parties.
We reserve the right to share your personal information with third parties if required to do so by law, or if we believe such action is necessary in order to: (1) conform to the requirements of the law or comply with legal process served upon us; (2) protect or defend our legal rights or property, the BUZWAY.COM site, or our users; or (3) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of the terms and conditions for using the BUZWAY.COM site.
