Privacy Policy

Your Personal Information collected by BetterLounge.com will only be used for purposes to which you have given your consent. Better Lounge’s collection, use and disclosure of your personal information is governed by its Privacy Policy. Privacy Rights Better Lounge is responsible for the personal information that it collects, uses, maintains and discloses. To ensure this accountability, we have developed this policy, and trained our staff about our policies and practices. Personal Information Personal information is any information that identifies you, or by which your identity could be deduced. It does not include your name (in your capacity as an employee of an organization), business address, business title or business telephone number. Types of Information Collected This Site collects from and uses information about its users. This information falls into a number of different categories: The Site automatically collects certain user information which is customarily logged by Internet servers, such as the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address through which you access the Internet, the date and time you access this Site and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to this Site (“User IP Information”). The Site may use “Cookies”, which are small data files that are placed on an individual user’s computer hard drive to enable the user to more easily communicate and interact with the Site. The Site may collect user information which does not allow identification of you, such as buying preferences or age; this information is also known as demographic or profile data (“User Anonymous Information”). User Anonymous Information is generally provided to Better Lounge by users on an optional basis. The Site may collect users’ Personal Information such as your name, address, phone number and email address. The collection of Personal Information may be through various means, such as submissions, contests and communications to the Site and postings to bulletin or chat areas, if any. We may aggregate or anonymize Personal Information (by removing information which could identify an individual user) in order to create User Anonymous Information. Why and How the Site Collects and Uses Information The reason for the collection of information on the Site and uses which are made of the information which is collected depends on the nature of the information. User IP Information is used to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of this Site, and to help us make this Site more useful to the users. For example, we collect your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Site. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. Your IP address is also used to help identify you during a particular session and to gather broad demographic data. The Site uses Cookies to customize your experience on the Site. We also use Cookies to record how many times a user has visited our Site and what pages the user has accessed. You may, however, disallow receiving Cookies at any time through your web browser. It is not our intention to use Cookies to retrieve information that is unrelated to our Site or your interaction with our Site. We may use User IP Information, Cookie information or User Anonymous Information collected on and through this Site to improve our Site, to personalize your experience on the Site and to send you information that may be of interest to you. This information may also be used for statistical purposes or to evaluate what portions of the Site are more popular than others, determine where visitors came from, and where they go, and how long visitors stay on a particular page, or on the Site in general.
