General Disclaimer
Thank you for visiting Buffalo Exchange, Ltd.’s website and reviewing our Privacy Policy. While visiting BuffaloExchange.com, we will not collect any personal information about you unless you choose to provide that information to us. If you choose to provide this information, it will be used for the express purpose for which it was intended, such as responding to your request for information. If you visit a link outside of BuffaloExchange.com, you are subject to the privacy policies of that site.

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.

Cookies
When you visit some websites, their web servers generate pieces of information known as cookies. These help webmasters understand how visitors interact with their site’s content and services. Websites use cookies to track a visitor’s activities on the website (e.g., pages visited, links clicked on, etc.) and record information about the visitor in order to provide a customized experience.

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. To learn more about how to disable cookies in your browser, please visit: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/opt-out-cookies.html.

Buffalo Exchange may utilize third party services to enhance its collection and distribution of data and information. A persistent cookie may be set by these third party providers.

Below are the third party services we may use that may collect information such as cookies, usage data, personal data, email addresses, etc. This Buffalo Exchange Privacy Policy does not apply to these services, so we encourage you to read each service’s individual privacy policy.

Information Collected from Interactive Forms and Surveys
BuffaloExchange.com provides interactive forms that let you voluntarily submit personal information such as your e-mail address, name and birthday. This occurs when you register to leave a comment on a Hub post; register to receive e-mail updates and newsletters; and send questions and comments to the BuffaloExchange.com team.

By registering for our mailing list, your email address will be added to our contact list and you may receive email messages from us. You can opt out at any time.

We will only release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety. BuffaloExchange.com never collects information or creates individual profiles for commercial marketing. However, when you leave a comment on the website, the name and other personal information you provide (except e-mail) are viewable by anyone visiting BuffaloExchange.com. Buffalo Exchange may also use online survey instruments to obtain feedback on your experience with BuffaloExchange.com. You may receive a survey via email. Providing personal information on the survey is voluntary. If you decline the survey, you will still have access to the same information and resources of BuffaloExchange.com as those who take the survey. The survey reports are available only to BuffaloExchange.com managers and other staff who require this information to perform their duties.

Social Media and Third Party Websites
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.

Buffalo Exchange uses some social media tools and websites to interact with members of the public and publicize Buffalo Exchange programs and services.
