PRIVACY POLICY

We believe you have a right to know what personal information is collected during your visits to our web site -- semoMarketplace.com -- and how the information is used and safeguarded. You can view some of our content anonymously, but circumstances exist when information about you is collected. The information gathered falls into two categories: information you supply voluntarily and information we gather through technology.

Information you supply voluntarily

To use certain features and services on semoMarketplace.com, you are asked to provide specific information about yourself. Examples of such features and services include registering to manage business listings, registering to provide a business review, entering contests, contacting us about a customer service problem, or subscribing to an email or SMS alert. This information is collected when you fill out a browser-based form and is necessary to make the features useful and valuable. The forms have blank spaces into which you type the information. In most cases, we collect information such as your name, email address, telephone number, birth date and mailing address.

How we use information you supply voluntarily

We use the information you voluntarily supply to develop and offer content that best suits your interests, to complete transactions, or to communicate with you. If you contact us for help, we use the information to contact you with a resolution to your problem or answer to your question. If you enter a contest, we use the information to determine eligibility and to contact winners. If you fill out a business review, we may contact you as an intermediary with the business to offer to help solve any complaints. If you purchase a semoMarketplace expanded site and/or advertising on semoMarketplace.com through the Pay Pal system, we will use that information to collect payment and contact you to ensure you have received everything you need to get started working on your business site. If you are a registered user of semoMarketplace.com, we use the information to make you aware of special offers made available to registered users.

Information gathered through technology

Technology helps us gather other information. Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address, which is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet. You likely enter the Internet through your Internet service provider, your company or your school. Your IP address does not identify you personally. Your email address is not collected through this process, and no data on your hard drive or personal or institutional servers are read.

We also collect aggregate information on how many people visit our sites and what pages people access on our sites. Some of this information is gathered using a standard feature of browser software called a "cookie." A cookie cannot read data on your hard drive or server or gather other personal information about you such as your name or email address.

How we use information gathered through technology

The information gathered through technology helps us make our sites more interesting and useful to you and other visitors. It helps us evaluate the value of and interest in specific sections of our sites. We can build better sites if we know which pages you and other people visit and how often you and others visit those pages.

Sharing information with other parties

Personal information you voluntarily provide is used for internal purposes only and is not shared with or sold to other businesses or organizations. Under no circumstances is specific information about you or other individuals shared with advertisers or other parties without your permission. Use of certain interactive features, such as submitting a business review, implies your permission to share your information. Situations where permission is implied are clearly labeled on the browser-based forms. We will share personal information with law enforcement officials as required under subpoena or court order to protect the safety and security of our sites, our visitors and the community. We do share aggregated statistics on site visits and page views with advertisers to help them understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising on our web sites. Personal information about individuals is not shared with advertisers.

Special notice to children

Children should always get parental permission before sending any information about themselves over the Internet -- to us or anyone else. We encourage parents to review and share safety tips with their children using the Internet. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from or about children under 13 except as permitted by law. If we discover we have received any information from a child under 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe we have any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact us.

Our right to revise this policy

The Internet is an ever-changing medium. We reserve the right to alter or amend this policy as required by changes in business strategy or developments in technology. If changes are required, we will post the changes before they go into effect. The use of information gathered while the current policy is in effect will be consistent with the current policy, even if we change the policy later.
