Privacy Policy

This statement discloses the privacy practices for the web site (hereinafter “Web Site”) owned and managed by SGB Media, LLC (hereinafter “SGB”, “SGB Media”,”we”, “us”, “our”). We take privacy issues very seriously and we are strongly committed to protecting your privacy. Knowledge of these practices will empower users to make informed decisions about submitting information online. This privacy policy references and incorporates herein the policies, provisions, and definitions of the Terms & Conditions of the Web Site.

Any updates to this privacy policy will be specifically highlighted in this space on this page for at least 6 months after implementation:

Registration Information
The Web Site requires basic information about all Registered Users, Buyers, and Sellers (hereinafter “you”, “your”), such as name, userID, company name, contact information, address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers, and specialty interests. This identifiable information is used to create a personal business profile for you. That profile is stored securely on our servers – sensitive information is encrypted for your protection. Your profile means that we can deliver information and services to you that are customized to your interests and business needs. Some of the services on the Web Site may be offered in conjunction with a partner company. Currently, these services do not require sharing information with partner companies. If future services require information sharing, you will be alerted in this section of this page.

In addition to helping the Web Site serve your interests and business needs, your profile is used to help us understand usage and commerce trends on the Web Site. Our analysis of usage and commerce trends takes the form of aggregated statistics and is anonymous – your name and contact information are never associated with usage and commerce patterns. The Web Site may distribute trend information to you or third parties (although it does not do so currently). Again, that information would only contain statistics about usage and commerce; no personal information would be included to third parties. If you prefer not to be part of this trend analysis, even anonymously, please see our description of opting out of service.

Access to Third Parties
The Web Site uses hot links so customers can request information from the Web Site, buy or sell products and services, and communicate with other Registered Users, Buyers, or Sellers. We collect contact information, such as phone numbers and e-mail addresses, from the links order form to help buyers and sellers connect and transact business. If there is trouble processing an order or transaction, we may use this information to get in touch with you. This information is used for no other purpose. Please remember that your contact or business dealings with vendor or suppliers who provide goods or services, is between you and/or your company and that vendor or supplier and is not covered under the SGB privacy policy.

You must list your e-mail address when you register on the Web Site. The Web Site does not control any e-mail exchange that takes place as a result of one or more parties listing their e-mail addresses and using them to correspond outside of the Web Site.
