For you to actively participate in Beezid, We do need some of your personal information, however, once you provide us with your required personal information, you are no longer anonymous. In providing us with your personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of such information on our servers. We will share your personal information with third parties only in accordance with this privacy statement. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.
In connection with your registration and use of Beezid, We may collect and store the following personal information:
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. You agree that We may use your personal information to:
If you wish to subscribe to our newsletters or promotional emails, we will use your name and email address to send the selected communications to you.

We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a listing or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety. Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
We may also share your personal information with third parties assisting our business operations under contract, including but not limited to a credit card processer to bill you for services, live chat to assist you if you have questions, fraud investigations and debt collection. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us. We will also share your personal information with law enforcement or other governmental officials if required by law, and with other business entities, should We plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity. Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the community free from bad actors, We will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when We believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.
Once you have been approved as a registered user with Beezid, you will be required to choose a user name. This user name will be displayed throughout Beezid and therefore provided to the public. Unless you associate your user name with your personal information, users will not be able to personally identify your activities on Beezid. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services.
You can access, review and change most of your personal information by logging on to Beezid at any time. However, some of your personal information such as your email address, username, first name, last name, gender, email id and user id can only be changed by contacting our Customer Service at email@example.com. You are required to promptly update your personal information if changes occur or information is inaccurate.
Upon your request, We will close your account as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our General Terms and Conditions, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law. You can delete or deactivate your Beezid account at any time. When you delete your membership, your personal data is removed from our database unless We are required to save the data.
Beezid uses so-called “cookies”, which are files that are stored on your computer that can be retrieved to assist in customizing your experience with the online service. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. The information saved supports the functionality of the site, for example by keeping track of your visual preferences or controlling the frequency of “pop-up” windows. You are free to prevent cookies from being saved on your hard drive by adjusting the corresponding settings in your browser. However, We would like to point out that turning off these settings may reduce the quality of your experience.
Our third party advertising partner employs a software technology called Web Beacons that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Web Beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Web Beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “Newsletters”.
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We use third-party tracking services that use log files to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our site in the aggregate to collect usage and volume statistics for security, fraud prevention and marketing.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Your Beezid account and profile and the information contained therein are password protected. Please note that you are not permitted to provide your password to anyone else. Beezid will never ask for your password in e-mails that you receive unexpectedly or that you did not request. Please remember to log out of your account and to close your internet browser window when you leave the Beezid site; this is especially important if you use a PC in public locations. At present, this is the safest way to ensure that no one has access to your personal information.
When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). While we strive to protect your personal information, We cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. As examples, change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
If you choose to use our referral service to email a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. Beezid stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program and to avoid sending repeat requests to the same recipient.
Your friend may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove this information from our database.
