PRIVACY POLICY

Please read the following about the NeighborGoods information gathering and privacy practices. By using the NeighborGoods.net website (the "Website") and/or any other service provided by NeighborGoods, you consent to the collection, use, and storage of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to transactions and activities in which you engage with NeighborGoods on and off the Website.

ANTI-SPAM POLICY

NeighborGoods does not send spam or sell email addresses. If you received an unsolicited email invitation to join NeighborGoods or to attend an event, the invitation was generated by a member or user of the Website and not by NeighborGoods. We do not deem the invitation as a request for NeighborGoods to contact you further, and will not contact you with respect to any matter other than the invitation unless we receive a request for such further contact from you. However, if you would like to notify us that you do not wish to receive any communications from NeighborGoods in any event, please see the "Right to Opt Out" section below for the proper methods to submit a request that we not contact you.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

NeighborGoods is the sole owner of non-personal information collected from any person. NeighborGoods will not sell, share, or rent any collected information to others in ways different from those disclosed in this statement. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful.

Personal Information

By using this Website, you agree to allow us to anonymously use the information from you and your experiences through the Website for the purposes of further studying and developing our services. However, all of your information will be kept anonymous, and no personally-identifiable information will ever be distributed or published. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, NeighborGoods may include your username and non-confidential use information within product literature and on the Website for marketing purposes.

In connection with your use of this Website and or other NeighborGoods services, NeighborGoods may collect information about you such as your email address. This data is used only for purposes of improving and tailoring our services for our users, and will never be sold to any third party. We consider your personal information highly confidential and will not pass it on to anyone outside of NeighborGoods and its Service Providers with a need to know such information, except that we may disclose such information: (i) to subsidiary and parent companies and other affiliated legal entities with whom NeighborGoods is under common corporate control, (ii) in the event of a change of ownership or transfer of NeighborGoods assets, or (iii) in the event of a bankruptcy, where required to do so by law, (iv) to prevent a crime, or (v) to protect the safety of NeighborGoods or any of its users. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, the term "Service Provider" means a NeighborGoods agent, representative, contractor, or other provider of a service with whom NeighborGoods has an agreement pursuant to which the Service Provider supports the operation of NeighborGoods. All Service Providers are required: (i) to keep your information confidential, and (ii) not to use the information for any purpose other than the operation of NeighborGoods. Any NeighborGoods parent, subsidiary and/or affiliated legal entity that receives your personal information, financial information, or non-anonymous demographic information from NeighborGoods will comply with the terms of this Privacy Policy with respect to its use and disclosure of the information.

In addition, in connection with our online networking service, NeighborGoods may collect information from you which is used in order to enable NeighborGoods users (each a "User") to locate other Users by searching profile data. Some basic information that you provide for inclusion in your public profile will be displayed publicly, but your specific address and other contact information will not be shared with other Users unless and until you share them. Your public profile will be displayed to and searchable by other Users, including a contact mechanism; however, you may block specific Users from contacting you.

NeighborGoods does not collect information about persons younger than 18 years of age. All users of the Website and all NeighborGoods Users must represent to NeighborGoods that they are at least 18 years old.

By purchasing, registering, or making reservations for products or services of any third parties offered on the Website, or by participating in programs offered on the Website that require you to submit financial information to third parties in order to use them, you also consent to our providing your financial information to those third parties.
