INTRODUCTION. PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE ENTIRE PRIVACY POLICY STATEMENT AS STATED HEREIN ("Privacy Policy").  Buxfer, Inc. (herein also referred to as "Us," "We," "Our," or "Company") is committed to respecting the privacy rights of its Customers and Visitors (as defined herein) that access, interact and/or use the services and/or products offered by the Company through its website located at http://www.buxfer.com and/or mobile applications available through the Apple Store, Google Play and Windows Store (collectively referred to in this Agreement as the/this "Site").

The term Visitor, as used herein, means an individual that simply browses the Site. The term "Customer" as used herein, means an individual that registers or has registered for a User Account with Us.  The term "YOU," "YOUR," or "User" refers to YOU as a Visitor or Customer.  The term "User Account" as used herein refers to any account that you register for, set up and/or create with the Company.

This Privacy Policy is only applicable to the Site, and not to any other websites or applications (whether Affiliated or not with Company) that YOU may be able to access from the Site, each of which may have data collection, storage, and use practices and policies that may differ materially from this Privacy Policy. 

Our Privacy Policy is designed to provide notice and to help YOU understand the collection, use, sharing and safeguarding of the information YOU provide Us or that is obtained by Us ("Information") when YOU visit, interact with or use the Site, create a User Account, and/or purchase and/or use our products and/or services ("Site Interactions").

BINDING AGREEMENT.  As a result of YOUR Site Interactions, YOU agree and accept the terms of this Privacy Policy and Our Terms of Use, as amended, and consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of YOUR Information, including YOUR Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy. YOU also agree and consent to receiving this Privacy Policy electronically.

If YOU do not agree with any term of this Privacy Policy, please do not interact with the Site, do not provide Us with YOUR Information, including YOUR Personal Information, nor use any our products or services. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand what We do.

WHAT WE COLLECT/ HOW WE COLLECT. We collect both Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.  "Personal Information" refers to any personally identifiable information (1) provided by YOU, (2) obtained by Us with YOUR consent, or (3) which results from any transactions with YOU and/or any product(s) and/or service(s) provided to or performed for YOU by Us, which is not publicly available.  Personal information does not include information that is anonymous, aggregated, or is no longer identifiable to a specific person.  Personal Information DOES include information such as YOUR name; YOUR residential or business address; YOUR email address; YOUR social security number; YOUR personal financial data such as YOUR bank account numbers, credit card number(s) or financial account number(s), financial transactions (e.g. credit or debit purchase information and other descriptions of financial transactions that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual's identity) and YOUR secured login information (including user names and  passwords) with third party financial institutions; and demographic data (such as YOUR zip code, age, and income).

The types of Personal Information We collect depend on the Site Interactions by YOU.  If YOU communicate with Us or YOUR User Account by e-mail, or by text message, SMS, MMS, or otherwise complete online forms, surveys, or contest entries, any personally identifiable information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.  Also, when YOU create a User Account on the Site, any information or data that YOU input, download or consent to being obtained, retrieved, or collected by the Company will be collected and stored, which will contain Personal Information.  Moreover, if YOU use other social media platforms such as GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, MICROSOFT and YAHOO to log-in or set up your User Account ("Social Media Log-in") the Company may collect the username, email address, any public profile information or an opaque identifier pertaining to YOUR Social Media Log-in; However, the Company will not obtain or have access to YOUR Social Media Log-in password. If YOU chose to backup the data contained in YOUR User Account to either YOUR Dropbox or Google Drive accounts, the Company will obtain opaque identifiers in the form of access tokens pertaining to these third party accounts. 

Non-Personal Information refers to information that cannot be used to personally identify YOU, such as anonymous usage data, general demographic information We may collect, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, preferences YOU submit and preferences that are generated based on the data YOU submit and number of clicks.  Generally, there is automatic collection of usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Site and its components, similar to Television ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show.  The Company only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify YOU personally. This type of aggregate data enables Us to figure out how often users use parts of the Site and/or our products and services so that We can make the Site appealing to as many users as possible, and improve our quality of service.

We also automatically track and collect the following categories of information when YOU visit the Site: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers accessing the Site; (4) types of web browsers used to access the Site; and (5) pages visited by YOU (collectively "Traffic Data"). We use Traffic Data anonymously and not in a way to personally identify YOU.  The collection of this data is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving YOUR experience on the Site. We also use "cookies" to customize content specific to YOUR interests, to ensure that YOU do not see the same advertisement repeatedly, and to store YOUR password so YOU do not have to re-enter it each time YOU visit the Site. (See Below for Additional Information on Cookies).  The Company also records the details of YOUR transactions on the Site.

The collection of both Personal Information and Non-Personal Information occurs with YOUR interaction with the Site and the use of our product(s) and/or service(s). Therefore, YOU can control the amount of Personal Information provided to the Company.  If YOU choose to limit the Personal Information YOU to provide to the Company YOU may be limited to the type of product(s) and/or service(s) and special or premium features or memberships that may be offered or available to YOU.  The Company does not collect Personal Information unless it is voluntarily provided by YOU to the Company, its obtainment is consented by YOU, or the collection of such information is a result of any transactions with YOU and/or product(s) or service(s) requested by YOU to be provided to or performed for YOU by the Company.
