How Information is collected
To facilitate and customise your experience with the Website, we store cookies on your computer. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a User's computer for record-keeping purposes which contains information about that User. We use cookies to save you time while using the Website, remind us who you are, and track and target User interests in order to provide a customised experience. Cookies also allow us to collect information from you, like which pages you visited and what links you clicked on. Use of this information helps us to create a more user-friendly experience for all visitors. In addition, we may use Third Party Advertising Companies to display advertisements on our Website. As part of their service, they may place separate cookies on your computer. We have no access to or control over these cookies. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by our Website only and does not cover the use of cookies by any Advertiser. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you may be able to modify your browser settings to decline cookies. Please note that if you decline or delete these cookies, some parts of the Website may not work properly. Other Tracking Devices: We may use other industry standard technologies like pixel tags and web beacons to track your use of our Website pages and promotions, or we may allow our Third Party Service Providers to use these devices on our behalf. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on certain pages on our Website, or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or open or click an email, pixel tags and web beacons generate a Non-Personally Identifiable notice of that action. Pixel tags allow us to measure and improve our understanding of visitor traffic and behavior on our Website, as well as give us a way to measure our promotions and performance. We may also utilise pixel tags and web beacons provided by our Affiliates and/or Marketing Partners for the same purposes.

Privacy Practices of Third Parties

SavvySME™ has relationships with third party advertising companies to place advertisements on our behalf onto other websites, and to perform tracking and reporting functions for our Sites and our advertisements. We do not share Personal Information with third party advertising companies; however, these third parties may automatically collect information about your visit to our Sites and other websites, your IP address, your ISP and the browser you use to visit this Site. They do this by using cookies, clear gifs and other technologies. Information collected may be used, among other things, to deliver advertising targeted to your interests and to better understand the usage and visitation of our Site and the other websites tracked by these third parties. This Privacy Statement does not cover the collection methods or use of the information collected by these third parties, and SavvySME™ is not responsible for cookies or clear gifs in third party ads. We encourage you to review the privacy policies or statements of these third party advertising companies to learn more about their use of cookies and other technologies.

This Privacy Statement only addresses the use and disclosure of information by SavvySME™. Other websites that may be accessible through links from our Sites may have their own privacy statements and personal information collection, use, and disclosure practices. Our merchants and business partners may have their own privacy statements, too. We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the privacy statements provided by these other parties prior to providing them with information or taking advantage of an offer or promotion.

Communities

Our Sites may contain Communities and other areas where you may be able to publicly post information, communicate with others such as discussion boards or blogs, review products and merchants, and submit media content. Prior to posting in these areas, please read our Terms of Use carefully. All the information you post will be accessible to anyone with Internet access, and any Personal Information you include in your posting may be read, collected, and used by others.

Security Of Personal Information

SavvySME™ has taken reasonable precautions to protect the security of your Personal Information which it collects on our web site. These include protection of passwords using industry standard encryption, provisions to preserve the security of the information in our own systems and to prevent unauthorised access, modification, use or disclosure, and back-up systems to prevent accidental or malicious loss of data. Unfortunately, there's always a risk involved in sending information through any channel over the internet and when you send information over the internet, that is entirely at your own risk.

A few of our employees and contractors will have access to your Personal Information to a level that is necessary to enable them to perform their jobs. They are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any Personal Information held by us.

To the extent permitted by law, we will not be responsible for any unauthorised access or use of your Personal Information.

Changes to this Privacy Statement

From time to time, we may update this Privacy Statement to clarify our practices or to reflect new or different privacy practices, such as when we add new features to our Sites. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information about our privacy practices.

Use and Disclosure of Information

We may provide your Personal Information to third-party service providers who work on behalf of or with us to provide some of the services and features of SavvySME™ and to help us communicate with you. Examples of such services include sending email, analysing data, providing marketing assistance, processing payments (including credit card payments), and providing customer service. We require our third-party service providers to promise not to use such information except as necessary to provide the relevant services to us. If you do not want us to use or disclose Personal Information collected about you in the manner identified in this Privacy Policy, you may not use SavvySME™.

Additionally, we may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name) that would otherwise make the Anonymous Information personally identifiable to you. Generally, we aggregate this information and use it in statistical analysis to help us analyse patterns in the use of SavvySME™. This Privacy Policy does not limit our use or disclosure of any Anonymous Information in any way, and we reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties in our discretion.

You also acknowledge that in the event that SavvySME™ is sold to an acquiring company, you grant SavvySME™ the right to transfer all collected information to the acquiring company and SavvySME™ will not be required to obtain your prior consent or approval or to notify you of such a transfer.
