1.1 B2BRAZIL LLC and B2BRAZIL Serviços Interativos Ltda. (together, "B2Brazil") operate a business-to-business and trade networking and information platform located at http://www.b2brazil.com, http://www.b2brazil.com.br and any other B2Brazil-branded or B2Brazil.com-branded services provided to you by B2Brazil (the B2Brazil website and other B2Brazil-branded and B2BRASIL.com-branded services are together referred to as the "Website").
2. PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION ("PII").
2.1 PII is personally identifiable information such as your name, residential address and e-mail address and includes information about your product and/or service subscription, credit information and billing records.
2.2 Publicly available information, such as a public directory listing of your name, address, telephone number and electronic address, is not considered PII.
3. COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR PII.
3.2 If you are User and send an initial contact to a Registered Member using our "Contact Now" form-generating email or if you post a “Lead” or requirement, we will retain your PII and its contents for the Registered Member to access within their account management area and, depending on the type of contact or posting, we may distribute it across the Website. For instance, if a User sends a contact to a Registered Member to market a product, we may add that lead to our Leads Central area so that all Users can access the lead. We will also collect and retain your contact information in a User database as a Registered Member to facilitate future access and usage of the Website. Your PII will not be resold to other companies and will not be shared with any third party except as provided in this Policy. While we do not have any current plans to use this PII, we reserve the right to use this PII in the future in order to communicate with you about B2Brazil, improvements in our service, and so forth. In such case, you will be able to opt-out of future communications.
3.3 Information containing PII may also be collected to complement information obtained by a business partner or by a third party. In such instance, you are asked to validate and/or complement your contact information and profile, including any PII, as the case may be, to activate your account on the Website as a fully registered member.
3.4 Given the nature of the Website, as a Registered Member, you understand and agree that all PII entered on the Website upon registration and update of your account (except for payment information described in Section 3.5 below), whether in the obligatory or optional fields provided, may be posted on the Website and made available to other users and to the public. Your PII will not be resold to other companies and will not be shared with any third party except as provided in this Policy.
3.5 When using our online payment feature to establish an account with us, you are providing us with further PII, such as billing information, credit or debit card number and expiry date and information allowing the tracking of checks or other payment instrument. Only parties responsible for processing your registration and/or orders will have access to your credit card and bank information.
3.6 We may also collect information that may include PII, obtained through registration and use of our Website. Such information, which is not traceable to individual users as such, is used for statistical, analytical, monitoring and marketing purposes.
3.7 As with most Internet sites, the Website collects certain technical data, including your IP address (a unique number that identifies your access account on the Internet), domain, and web browser information. We do not log the specific identity of visitors. Technical data is used only to create broad demographic summaries of the Website usage and activity (such as average time spent and pages viewed) to assist us in providing useful content that is tailored to be of most value to our users. For example, this information is used by our Website developer in order to create new features, content, and services, and aggregate - not individual - information about our user base is also provided to actual and potential partners.
3.8 Our Website uses "cookies" and "pixel tags". Cookies are small text files transmitted by a website server to a temporary memory feature located in the personal computer of the website visitor. This gathering technology can be used to recognize repeat users and facilitate the user's ongoing access to and use of the site, as well as to collect and archive information such as individual user's address and/or domain name, type of browser, computer operating system as well as related websites. A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of the Website but not on your computer. When you access these pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of that visit. The information from cookies and pixel tags may generally serve to improve on our services but do not allow your identification. We do not record any PII in cookies or pixel tags, or store any information about your movements on the Internet outside of our Website. You can choose to decline cookies (e.g., by setting your browser to reject cookies), but if you do, some parts of our Website may not operate properly. Web logs are maintained by this Website. If you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous Website visit and certain features of the Website may not be available.
3.9 B2Brazil employs other companies and/or individuals to perform functions on our behalf. For instance, we may appoint third parties to develop software applications and/or database functions or to send communications on our behalf. Your PII may be disclosed to such individuals in the course of B2Brazil's business operations. All B2Brazil's employees, agents and contractors who have access to your PII are required to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy.
3.10 You understand and agree that whether or not your registration is still in force, B2Brazil may sell or transfer to third parties your contact and profile information, including any or all PII you have provided and posted on this Website, in connection with the sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation or dissolution of B2Brazil or otherwise than in such connection, in exceptional circumstances, provided that the third party to which the information is transferred or sold has expressly committed to protect your PII and seek confirmation from you on any further use of the information. You also agree that the PII collected through registration and use of the Website may also be posted on another website(s) that is owned and operated by B2Brazil, and on any other B2Brazil's partner, affiliate or co-brand's website, as the case may be.
3.11 In certain limited circumstances B2Brazil may disclose, share or transfer your PII to unrelated third parties. For example, we may provide your PII to a third party at your request; to comply with a legal requirement or court order or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary; to investigate a possible crime, such as identity theft, or other unlawful activity; and in any similar circumstances. If such an event occurs, we will take appropriate steps to protect your PII.
4. INVITATIONS & OTHER COMMUNICATIONS TO NON-MEMBERS
We may offer you a referral service to tell a contact of yours about our site. If you choose to use our referral service, we will ask you for your contact's name, company name and email address. We will automatically send your contact an initial email inviting him or her to visit the Website. B2Brazil will not sell the email addresses you provide for referrals or use that information to send any other communication besides invitations and invitation reminders. Recipients of invitations from B2Brazil will be able to contact us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database.
5. PII ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS AND WITHDRAWAL:
You have the responsibility to update and/or complete your account information which includes your PII posted on the Website. You can access, view and edit your account information through the online feature provided to that effect on the Website. If you no longer desire to be a Registered Member of B2Brazil, you may ask for the termination of your account and the deletion of your PII from the Website by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. COMMUNICATIONS FROM B2BRAZIL
6.1 Other than Service-Related Announcements and Customer Service communications (each described below), you may elect not to receive updates or notifications from B2Brazil by unchecking "Send Me All Notifications" on your account's Account Settings page. You also may elect to receive only specific types of notifications, by checking one or more of the options available in Account Settings.

6.4 We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature.
6.5 Based upon the PII you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are administrative in nature.
7. SECURITY MEASURES
7.1 The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Your password is essential to maintaining such security. We recommend that you never disclose your pass word to any third party and report any suspected unauthorized third party use of your password.
7.2 No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. As a consequence, you do so at your own risk and B2Brazil, its agents, affiliates, directors, officers and employees may not be held liable for any users' claim or loss related to unauthorized transmissions. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time.
8. EXTERNAL LINKS
No one under age 18 is allowed to subscribe to our Website and provide any PII. If your children disclose information about themselves, they may get unsolicited messages from other users. Accordingly, as parents, you should monitor your children's access to this Website and ask us for the removal of their subscription as the case may be. We do not knowing collect information from any minor.
