This describes how bzzHive and its subsidiaries treat personal information when you use bzzHive services, including information provided when you use bzzHive. In addition, the following describes privacy practices specific to the bzzHive.com site.
Browsing bzzHive publisher's storefronts you can browse content collections, but can't make any purchases. You also can contact us through the bzzHive Support Center or by emailing us directly without having to register for an account.
We ask for some personal information when you create an account, or if you use facebook connect, pull that information from their API, including, but not limited to your email address. A bzzHive Account, additionally, allows you to access other bzzHive services that require registration. If you have an facebook account, you may use that to register as well.
When you use bzzHive, we may record information about your usage of the site, such as viewing, sharing, commenting, purchases, subscriptions, the frequency and size of data transfers, and information you display about yourself as well as information you click on in bzzHive (including UI elements, settings). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your bzzHive Account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery.
Content and information uploaded to Site. Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose online (e.g., drop comments, your profile page) may be collected and used by others. If you install a bzzHive Storefront, your copy includes a unique application number. This number, and information about your installation of the Storefront (version number, language) will be sent to bzzHive when the storefront automatically checks for updates and will be used to update your version of the Storefront.
If you submit personal information to bzzHive, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of bzzHive, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to us.
We do not use your email address or other personal information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major bzzHive changes or for customer service purposes).
When you create a bzzHive Account, some information about your bzzHive Account and your account activity will be provided to other users of bzzHive. This may include the date you opened your bzzHive Account, the date you last logged into your bzzHive Account, your chatname.
Your bzzHive username, not your email address, is displayed to other users when you engage in certain activities on bzzHive, such as when you comment on content and collections through bzzHive.
Shared content that publishers submit to bzzHive may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by other bzzHive users or the general public.
If you have a bzzHive Account, you may update or correct your personal profile information, email preferences and privacy settings at any time by visiting your account profile page.
You may control the information that is available at any time by editing your bzzHive Account and the features that are included in your profile. You may, of course, decline to submit personal information through bzzHive, in which case you can still view public content and collections, but bzzHive may not be able to provide certain services to you.
