PRIVACY POLICY

GENERAL RIGHTS STATEMENT

We’ve had it stated as our founding tenet since the days when 906Guide was just an idea yet to be digitally created that our primary mission is to serve the site’s personal and business users to the fullest extent possible. 906Guide only works if its users participate and its users will only participate if their rights and privacy are protected. With that firmly in mind, we are committed to ensuring the total privacy of the users of our site and its services. All of the information transmitted between our users and 906Guide is used solely to provide greater service for the user, and we treat it with the utmost care and security.

INFO WE COLLECT

FROM PERSONAL USERS

IP Address

Like most other sites, statistical tracking records your IP address and the web page from which you came each time you visit us. This information is used for security (to identify you) and to gather broad demographic information about the site and its users.

Profile Information

Anyone can visit and use the basic features of 906Guide anonymously. However, in order to take advantage of all of the features and services we can provide, we encourage our frequent users to register personal accounts. In doing so, we collect basic contact information such as your email address and phone number (in order to get in touch with you about site issues) as well as your physical address (from which we base your searches as a default location). In addition, we collect a unique password and username from each registered user to provide for the security of their account.

Registered users also have the option of recording listings of their favorite businesses as well as lists of their 906Guide “buddies” in order to facilitate referrals among one another. Other “favorites” are available and will continue to be enhanced and added to as 906Guide moves forward.

906Guide also relies on the feedback of its users in order to continually create new features, enhance and repair existing ones, and generally improve the services the site provides. This feedback remains confidential and is used solely by the administrators of the site. In addition, businesses listed within 906Guide may offer users the ability to provide feedback and reviews of their products and services. Once submitted, these reviews become the property of the businesses to which they’re directed and often may be used by the businesses as featured testimonials on their buzz page.

FROM BUSINESS USERS

IP Address

Just like personal users, any time a business user visits our site, their IP address and the webpage from which they’ve traveled are logged. This information is used for security (to identify you) and to gather broad demographic information about the site and its users.

Account Information

Every measure is taken by 906Guide administrators to ensure the safety of the account information provided by its business users, and this information is transmitted solely between the business users and 906Guide. This information includes basic business listing information, username and password, and billing information.

Profile Information

906Guide automatically provides basic business listing information in the form of contact information and categorical description for all businesses in the geographic area 906Guide serves. This information is largely the same as can be found in physical and online directories – what sets 906Guide apart for businesses are the endless opportunities we provide our business users for greater interaction with their customers through a comprehensive and easy-to-use buzz page.

One of the primary features we offer businesses is full customization of their presence on 906Guide. Once registered for a business account, businesses are given total control of their basic listing, the basic features of the buzz page, and any other special buzz page features they like. All of the content is updateable in real time, and our staff is available should businesses require our help in anything from basic setup all the way to finishing your full buzz page down to the last detail.

All of these features provide businesses the opportunity to share with consumers whatever information they like, including hours of operation, business history, product and service listings, pricing, photo galleries, and an endless variety of additional audio and visual content. We collect this information as both an intermediary and partner between businesses and their 906Guide presence.

Proprietary Caution

The autonomy and control given to business users to fully customize and use their buzz page to the fullest is one of our strengths, but in doing so we caution businesses to carefully consider what proprietary content they include.

Feedback

One of the basic buzz page features we provide is the ability for businesses to collect and showcase feedback provided by their customers. 906Guide acts as the intermediary in gathering this information from voluntary customers and delivering it to the appropriate businesses. From there, this information is deemed the property of the business for which it was provided but may be used solely in the testimonial section of the business’s buzz page.

HOW WE USE IT

All of the information we collect we use solely to provide a better experience for both our personal and business users. This includes the use of all of the site features, statistical research, and the continual creation, improvement, and refinement of the site and its features.

One of the great things about 906Guide is that it brings businesses and consumers together in one unique, easy-to-use, and comprehensive site. Frequently your travels within 906Guide will give you the option of leaving the site to pursue further information through additional websites. Please keep in mind that 906Guide is not responsible for the information these sites collect from you, and cannot guarantee the privacy policies of each. Users should always check the individual privacy policy sections of each of these sites if they have any specific questions regarding their privacy on each.

Like most websites, 906Guide uses cookies to keep track of your searches and additional account activity as well as to provide a more convenient and efficient experience. We also use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to save your password, and if you choose, to save other personal information so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the site. Third parties that advertise on the site may also place cookies on your browser. If you wish to disable these cookies, the "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how. However, if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access certain areas or features of 906Guide.

HOW WE DON’T

We hate the abuse of consumer and business rights and information just as much as you do, and we never engage in the sale of your information to third parties. What we also won’t do is spam you ourselves – you will only receive communications from us that either a) you voluntarily sign up to receive (such as a customized newsletter, sales announcements from your favorite businesses, etc) or b) involve the security and functionality of your account. You’ve trusted us with the information you choose to provide and we take it seriously.

SECURITY MEASURES

906Guide reserves the right to monitor communications between personal users and businesses to prevent the abuse of the features it provides, and to protect the rights of all its users. We engage in a simple, step-by-step process in the registration of both personal and business accounts to ensure their security and accuracy as best we can.

A variety of thorough technical measures are in place and will continually be added as necessary for your protection and the security of your account and additional information.

ANY QUESTIONS

If you have any further questions about the information 906Guide collects and how it is used, please feel free to contact us anytime at privacy@906Guide or 1-906-226-2906.
