Information Collected and Stored Automatically
BuffaloExchange.com automatically collects some technical information from you when you visit the site in order to give you the best possible experience. BuffaloExchange.com uses web measurement technology such as Google Analytics to automatically track how visitors interact with BuffaloExchange.com, including where they came from and what they did on the site.
Aggregate data is used to help Buffalo Exchange improve our user interface and diversify our content offerings to meet the needs of our customers, track operational problems, prevent fraud and improve the effectiveness, security and integrity of the site. This information does not identify you personally and is stored for a maximum of two years. We never track or record information about individuals and their visits and we do not share this data with anyone outside Buffalo Exchange unless necessary for law enforcement purposes.
There are two types of cookies – session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie is a line of text that is stored temporarily in your web browser’s memory cache and expires when the browser is closed. A persistent cookie is saved to a file on your hard drive and is accessed whenever you re-visit the website that placed it there.
We use persistent cookies to differentiate between new and returning BuffaloExchange.com visitors and to avoid repeated invitations to join our email list. Persistent cookies remain on your computer between visits to BuffaloExchange.com until they expire. The persistent cookies that block repeated email list invitations expire in 90 days.
By default, persistent cookies and web measurement technologies are automatically used when you visit BuffaloExchange.com. If you decide to disable or remove cookies from your browser, you will continue to have access to all information and resources on BuffaloExchange.com.
