Sharing Your Information

We do not rent or sell your personal contact information (such as your email address associated with your account registration) to third-parties to use for their own marketing purposes. We may share some information about you with third parties in connection with your use of the Site. Our information sharing with third-parties fall into these categories and purposes:

  • Analytics and Usage: We may share user information in the listings provided, with third parties, such as advertisers, professionals, and businesses. For example, we may disclose to a business the number of users that have viewed their product. Business or professionals that participate on the BUILD EXPO LIVE network may also access usage data associated with your public profile. For example, a business can see that you, as identified by your public profile username, any profile photo, and any other publicly displayed profile identifiers (but not identified by your email or non-public account information), added their product to one of your moodboard on a particular date.
  • Third Party Ad Networks: We may use third-party advertising companies to serve advertisements on our Site and on third party sites, as well as to assist us in evaluating the effectiveness of our advertising, in accordance with applicable law. These companies use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies to collect information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this Site and other sites in order to provide targeted advertisements to you.
  • Business Transfers: If we are acquired by or merged with another entity, if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another company, or as part of a bankruptcy proceeding, we may transfer the information we have collected about you to the other company.
  • Other Users: Information that you post publicly on BUILD EXPO LIVE (e.g., photos, comments, your profile) will be made publicly available to other users of BUILD EXPO LIVE.
  • Investigations: We may investigate and disclose information from or about you, as permitted by applicable law, if we have a good faith belief that such investigation or disclosure is (a) reasonably necessary to comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us; (b) helpful to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Site; or (c) helpful to protect our rights, reputation, property, or that of our users, subsidiaries, or the public.

Account Termination and Data Retention

You can close your account at any time by going to account settings. When you close your account, you will cease to provide ongoing or future data to us. Your public profile will be deactivated. However, unless prohibited by applicable law, postings or comments you provided to the forum associated with your public profile prior to closing your account, will remain public. We may retain information about you for the purposes authorized under this privacy policy unless prohibited by law. Furthermore, all prior information will continue to persist in our databases and servers. It is also possible that such history of the account and its related activity may reside in web servers, user downloads, content delivery network caches and other such agents even after deactivation or termination of the account.

Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure – so we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

These choices are described throughout this privacy policy in the relevant sections.

Cookie Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use information from and about you when you use BUILD EXPO LIVE. We have provided this cookie policy to tell you more about why we use cookies and other similar identifying technologies, the types of cookies and similar technologies we use, and your choices in relation to these technologies.

Cookie overview

A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser or device by websites, mobile apps and advertisments that you access or use. This data is stored on your browser or device and helps websites and mobile apps remember things about you. For example, cookies may help us remember certain preferences you have selected, such as your language preference.

Our use of cookies

Like most online services, BUILD EXPO LIVE uses cookies for a number of reasons, such as protecting your BUILD EXPO LIVE data and account, helping us see which features are most popular, counting visitors to a page, improving our users’ experience, keeping our services secure, and just generally providing you with a better, more intuitive and satisfying experience. The cookies we use generally fall into 1 of the following categories:

Category of Cookies Why we use these cookies
Preferences We use these cookies to remember your settings and preferences. For example, we may use these cookies to remember your language preferences.
Security We use these cookies to help identify and prevent security risks. For example, we may use these cookies to store your web-session information, to prevent others from changing your password without your username and password.
Performance We use these cookies to collect information about how you interact with our services and to help us improve them. For example, we may use these cookies to determine if you have interacted with a certain page.
Analytics We use these cookies to help us improve our services. For example, we can use these cookies to learn more about which features are most popular with our users and which ones might need some tweaks.
Advertismentising We use these cookies to deliver advertismentising, to make advertisments more relevant and meaningful to consumers, and to track the efficiency of our advertismentising campaigns, both on our services and on other websites or mobile apps.

Pixels, local storage and other similar technologies

We may also use other similar technologies on our services, such as pixel tags and local storage. We use these technologies to do things like help us see what features are most popular, create a more personalised experience, and deliver relevant advertisements. Pixel tags (also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels) are small blocks of code installed in or on a webpage, mobile app or advertisement. These tags can retrieve certain information about your browser and device, such as: operating system, browser type, device type and version, referring website, website visited, IP address and other similar information. Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or mobile app to store and retrieve data on an individual’s computer, mobile phone or other device.

Your choices

Your browser probably lets you choose whether to accept browser cookies. And you may even be able to choose or limit the use of cookies and other similar technologies in mobile apps. But these technologies are an important part of how our services work, so removing or rejecting cookies and limiting the use of other similar technologies could affect the availability and functionality of our services.

Web browser opt-out

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you don’t want to allow cookies you may have some options. Your browser may provide you with a set of tools to manage cookies. You can usually set your browser to refuse some or all cookies. For example, some browsers give you the option to allow first-party cookies but block third-party cookies. So what's the difference between first-party and third-party cookies?

  • A "first-party" cookie is served by the page or domain that you are visiting. For example, when you visit BUILD EXPO LIVE and we serve a cookie for purposes of remembering your settings that is a first-party cookie.
  • A "third-party" cookie is served by a company that doesn’t operate the page or domain you are visiting. For example, when you visit BUILD EXPO LIVE and Google serves a cookie on BUILD EXPO LIVE for BUILD EXPO LIVE’s analytics, that is a third-party cookie.

You may also be able to remove cookies from your browser. Your ability to manage cookies through a mobile browser, however, may be limited. For more information about how to manage your cookie settings, please follow the instructions provided by your browser, which are usually in the “Help”, “Tools” or “Edit” settings.
