This PITTSBURGHBUZZ Privacy Statement applies to the PITTSBURGHBUZZ web site and email magazine and governs data collection and usage at all PITTSBURGHBUZZ sites and services; it does not apply to other online or offline sites, products or services.

Collection of your Personal Information
At some sites, PITTSBURGHBUZZ collects personal information, such as your e-mail address or mobile telephone number. PITTSBURGHBUZZ may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. Information collected by PITTSBURGHBUZZ may be combined with information obtained from other PITTSBURGHBUZZ services and other companies.

This information is used by PITTSBURGHBUZZ for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of PITTSBURGHBUZZ.

PITTSBURGHBUZZ keeps track of the pages our customers visit within PITTSBURGHBUZZ, in order to determine what PITTSBURGHBUZZ sites and services are the most popular. This data is also used by PITTSBURGHBUZZ to deliver customized content and advertising to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

PITTSBURGHBUZZ encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from PITTSBURGHBUZZ so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. PITTSBURGHBUZZ is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the PITTSBURGHBUZZ service.

Use of your Personal Information
PITTSBURGHBUZZ and its operational service partners collect and use your personal information to operate PITTSBURGHBUZZ and deliver the services you have requested. PITTSBURGHBUZZ does not use or disclose sensitive personal information without your explicit consent.

PITTSBURGHBUZZ may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

PITTSBURGHBUZZ does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. PITTSBURGHBUZZ may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.

In the future, we may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

PITTSBURGHBUZZ may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on PITTSBURGHBUZZ or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of PITTSBURGHBUZZ, including its website and email magazine; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of PITTSBURGHBUZZ services or members of the public.

Use of Cookies
PITTSBURGHBUZZ uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize PITTSBURGHBUZZ's pages, or register with PITTSBURGHBUZZ sites or services, a cookie helps PITTSBURGHBUZZ to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to PITTSBURGHBUZZ, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the PITTSBURGHBUZZ features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the PITTSBURGHBUZZ services or Web sites you visit.

In addition, PITTSBURGHBUZZ may allow other companies, called third-party ad servers to display advertisements on PITTSBURGHBUZZ Web pages. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer. Doing this allows the ad network to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. PITTSBURGHBUZZ does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.
