We also send our subscribers/customers regular newsletters by email. You can opt out, or unsubscribe, from marketing communication at any time.

How does BuzzeeMo use social media?
We use social media to promote our services and content. For example, we integrated social media plugins into the BuzzeeMo website. So when you click on one of the buttons and register with your social media account, information is shared with your social media provider, and possibly presented on your social media profile to be shared with others in your network.
In addition to implementing these buttons, BuzzeeMo uses social media by maintaining accounts on several social media sites and by offering social apps. These social media services may allow you to share information with BuzzeeMo. When you register with a social media app, you’ll be told which information will be shared with BuzzeeMo. The information you choose to share with us may include the basic information that’s already available in your social media profile, email address, status updates and your friends list. This information is necessary to create a unique user experience either in the app itself or on our website. It facilitates things like personalizing our website to suit your needs, and analyzing and enhancing our services.
We may also enable you to sign in to BuzzeeMo with your social media accounts. Your social media provider will be able to tell you more about how they use and process your data in such cases.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data that is placed in the browser of your computer or on your mobile device. This Privacy and Cookies Policy applies to cookies and similar technologies (hereafter together referred to as “cookies”).
Why are cookies used?
Web pages have no memory. If you are surfing from page to page within a website, you will not be recognized as the same user across pages. Cookies enable your browser to be recognized by the website. So cookies are mainly used to remember the choices you have made – choices such as the language you prefer and the currency you use. They will also make sure you are recognized when you return to a website.

Does BuzzeeMo use third-party cookies?
BuzzeeMo has no access to or control over these cookies that are used by third-party advertisers.
When it comes to online advertising and marketing companies, we strive to only work with companies that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and/or the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB). Members of NAI and IAB adhere to industry standards and codes of conduct. NAI and IAB members allow you to opt out of the behavioral advertising. Visit www.networkadvertising.org and www.youronlinechoices.com to identify the NAI members that may have placed an advertising cookie file on your computer.

In addition to using cookies, BuzzeeMo sometimes uses web beacons. A web beacon is a tiny graphic image of just one pixel that’s delivered to your computer either as part of a web page request or in an HTML email message. Either directly or through service providers, we use these pixels as part of our online advertisements either on our website or on third-party websites to learn whether a user who is being shown an online advertisement takes an action; to track conversion with partner websites and to analyze a user’s traffic patterns in order to optimize the content we bring to you.
Who has access to BuzzeeMo cookie data?
Only BuzzeeMo has access to BuzzeeMo cookies. Cookies placed by third parties can be accessed by these third parties.
How can you manage your cookie preferences?
Using your browser settings in, for example, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox or Chrome, you can set which cookies to accept and which to reject. Where you find these settings depends on which browser you use. Use the “Help” function in your browser to locate the settings you need.
If you choose not to accept certain cookies, you may not be able to use some functions on our website. Plus, opting out of an online advertising network doesn’t mean that you won’t receive or be subject to online advertising or marketing analysis. It means that the network you opted out of will no longer deliver ads tailored to your web preferences and browsing patterns.
What security procedures does BuzzeeMo put in place to safeguard your personal data?
In accordance with European data protection laws (GDPR), we observe reasonable procedures to prevent unauthorized access and the misuse of personal information.
