What information does Buffalo Exchange collect?

The information we collect from you falls into two categories: personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and non-personally identifiable information (i.e., information that cannot be used to identify who you are) (“Non-Personal Information”).

Personal Information we may collect from you includes your name, email address, birthday and telephone number. We retain your Personal Information as reasonably required to serve you and operate our website. What Personal Information we collect depends on how you use our website. Providing your Personal Information to us is your choice.

Non-Personal Information we may collect from you includes identifier and other technical information, such as your browser information, operating system information, device information, IP address and the date, time, length of stay and specific pages accessed during your interactions with the Services. We collect this data primarily through our third party services including Google Analytics and Active Campaign.


How is your information shared?

We will not share your Personal Information with outside third parties who wish to market other products and services to you. Your information will only be shared with third parties that perform services on our behalf.

Third Party Services We Utilize:
Buffalo Exchange may utilize third party services to enhance its collection and distribution of data and information. We share data between trusted third party services, including Facebook, Active Campaign and Google Analytics. A persistent cookie may be set by these third parties.

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.


Social Media Tools and Websites We Utilize:

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, assisting in marketing or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your Personal Information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety.

Buffalo Exchange uses some social media tools and websites to interact with members of the public and publicize Buffalo Exchange programs and services. Buffalo Exchange’s Privacy Policy does not apply to these third party sites, so we encourage you to read the policies of the third party site when deciding whether to use it. The official Buffalo Exchange social media sites are listed below, along with links to each site’s privacy policies.


How do we collect information?

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 from our third party service providers to help Buffalo Exchange improve our content offerings and advertising to meet the needs of our customers, track operational problems, prevent fraud and improve the effectiveness, security and integrity of the site.

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 as well as targeted advertising. You can opt out at any time.

We will release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies or protect our or others’ rights, property or safety. 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, trusted third party providers and other staff who require this information to perform their duties.

Cookies:
When you visit some websites, their web servers generate pieces of information known as cookies. 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.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals:
Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. At this time, we do not respond to browser “do not track” signals, but we do provide you the option to opt out of our email list and targeted advertising. Please email us at contact@bufex.com to request the removal of your information.
