Use of Information Collected
Except as stated below, your information will not be shared with any third parties. Your name, email address, physical address, or any other personally identifiable information will not be included in any marketing, promotional database, or mailing list by NigeriaNewsBuzz.com.
Sharing of Information Collected: Sharing Aggregated Information and Personal Information of Users
As part of our business, we may share aggregated information (data obtained across many or all user accounts) about visits, users, and past transactions with our service partners and resellers in a way that does not personally identify any particular user.
We may aggregate personal information and disclose it to advertisers and other third parties for marketing and promotional purposes in a non-personally identifiable manner.
In these circumstances, however, we do not provide these businesses with any information that could be used to identify you personally.
Other Restrictions and Disclosures
We will not sell, rent, or transfer your Personally Identifiable Information to any third party unless we are required to do so by law, court order, or regulation, or we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with law or legal process, cooperate with local or federal authorities, or protect or defend against fraud, misuse of the NigeriaNewsBuzz.com Website, or breach of any of your obligations.
Non-service-related emails will not be sent to user accounts by NigeriaNewsBuzz.com. Outside of the NigeriaNewsBuzz.com Website, NigeriaNewsBuzz.com will not trace your Internet activities. NigeriaNewsBuzz.com will not trace your online browsing habits after you leave the Website.
Security of Information
To protect the confidentiality of your Personally Identifiable Information, NigeriaNewsBuzz.com employs industry-standard procedures such as encryption and firewalls.
We use a variety of security techniques to protect all data from loss and unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company, including regulating physical and virtual access to any root access, database(s), servers, back-ups, encryption keys, or other network and security-related infrastructure components.
Furthermore, sensitive data such as passwords are encrypted before being stored in our systems, ensuring that the data remains secure even if a breach occurs and access to the data is gained.
Please be aware that, while we make every attempt to protect your user information, there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet.
The privacy policies of third-party sites or service providers to which we provide links, if any, are beyond the control of NigeriaNewsBuzz.com.
Please be aware that if you click on an advertisement or a link from a third party, you will be subject to the privacy policies of that third party.
When visitors leave comments on NigeriaNewsBuzz.com, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.
