What Information is Collected About Our Visitors?|
The information that BlueBuddies.com collects about you while you are using the Service falls into two general categories:
1. Information You Provide:
BlueBuddies.com may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that you voluntarily supply while on the BlueBuddies.com website. Some examples of this type of information include your name, email address and demographic information that you electronically submit when you sign up for access to certain features on the Service, information that you post on message boards on the BlueBuddies.com website, and information contained in search requests or queries you submit to the BlueBuddies.com website. If you decline to supply or provide BlueBuddies.com with certain information while using the Service, you may not be able to use or participate in some or all of the features offered through the Service.
2. Information Automatically Collected:
BlueBuddies.com also collects and stores information that is generated automatically as you traverse the BlueBuddies.com website. For example, BlueBuddies.com uses a standard web browser feature called a "cookie", which are small text files placed on your hard drive by your web browser. By showing how and when visitors use the BlueBuddies.com site, cookies help us detail user trends and patterns. Cookies also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences and personal information on certain areas of the BlueBuddies.com site where you have entered such information previously. BlueBuddies.com also collects information about your computer's connection to the Internet. This information allows us to measure traffic on the BlueBuddies.com site and improve the delivery of web pages to you.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

For example, we may provide our advertisers with information about you and other visitors that will enable our advertisers to better target advertisements to specific visitor classifications.
BlueBuddies.com reserves the right to use and to disclose to third parties all of the information that BlueBuddies.com collects online about you and other visitors in any way and for any purpose, with one important exception.

Please note that voluntarily provided personal information is available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, through email or web statistics, or in chatrooms – and said information can be viewed, collected and used by others besides BlueBuddies.com.
