INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you visit Site you may provide us with two types of information: personal information (“Personal Information”) such as your email address and financial details such as credit card information, you voluntarily choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and Web site use information (“Site Information”) collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Site. BizKingdom strives to collect as little Personal Information as possible from its Users. However, for some of our services, such as placing ads, making replies, requesting quotes, and purchasing materials, we may need to collect some Personal Information from you in order to deliver these services to you and enable others to reply to your postings.
1. Personal Information
We do not collect any Personal Information from Users while they use services such as our ‘business-for-sale search' and the reading of postings to the Buyer's Bulletin Board. Any information entered in these search forms is not retained by BizKingdom.
A primary purpose of BizKingdom is to provide publicly searchable databases of classified ads and other postings. Therefore, much of information submitted by you to these services is done so with the intent that we make the information public knowledge. Your User profile data is public and can be viewed by any visitor
Is this right?
Although user email addresses are categorized as Personal Information, Users are welcome to disclose their email address in the text of their postings if they desire. The posting forms also note other items that may typically be considered Personal Information, which we allow Users the option to disclose (such as name and phone number) or provide other means to make the publicly disclosed information more confidential (such as by selecting a region of the country instead of a state).
Advertisment Order Form
We request information from you when you fill out our advertisement posting form. You are required to provide a valid email address (providing your name and phone number is optional) so that you can receive inquiries to your ad, as well as email correspondence from BizKingdom regarding the status of your advertising. You must also provide your credit card number and expiration date to enable us to charge the card for the advertising fee.
We also collect information regarding the details of your business for sale. All of the information in relation to the details about your business will be publicly disclosed with the exception of your email address and password. The public information regarding your business-for-sale is made available through our searchable databases on BizKingdom and on the sites of our co-branded partners, as well as through our broker's database and our Email Listings notification service. The financial data you provide about your business-for-sale (such as the asking price, gross income and cash flow) may be included in our aggregate statistics
Buyer's Bulletin Board
If you choose to post an advertisement to the Buyer's Bulletin Board, we require a valid email address so that you can receive inquiries to your posting (through our email system in which your email address is not revealed). Your email address is also used as your sign-on ID to enable you to later sign on to your posting to edit or delete it.
In the Buyer's Bulletin Board, all information regarding the type of business that you are seeking will be considered as public information and would be made available to the general public and to our member brokers. You may delete your posting at any time by returning to the Board area and selecting the "Delete Your Posting" option, and after confirming your desire to delete the posting it will immediately be removed from our database and no longer made available to the public.
If you choose to receive listings for business-for-sale through email, you may subscribe to our Listings-By-Email service. You would be required to enter the email address to which you want the new listings delivered and for brief information regarding the types of listings you are interested in receiving. Your email address always remains private and is not sold or supplied to any third parties.
BizKingdom does permit its broker members to review our database of the types of listings that are currently sought, and if your Listings-By-Email request matches their criteria, the broker member is able to contact you through our email system (in which your identity or email address is not revealed). You may, however, opt to not have your listings preferences disclosed to BizKingdom broker members by checking the box on the Listings-By-Email form.
If you wish to unsubscribe from our Listings-By-Email, click on the "Cancel Notification" link. (We also provide a link to this page at the bottom of every email we send to you.) After entering your email address and clicking the Cancel button, you will be unsubscribed from our Listings-By-Email notifications. (Note that BizKingdom may also delete your subscription if your email address no longer functions.) When you unsubscribe, your email address and listing-type preferences are immediately removed from our database.
When you use our Site to receive quotes for products or services you require for your business (a “Quote Seeker”) or to receive referrals or inquiries of Quote Seekers for your products or services (a “Vendor”), you will be required to disclose certain personal information to us.
If you are looking for vendors to provide you with certain desired products or services as a Quote Seeker you need only provide the following information:
1. Provide information specific to the product or service for which you are seeking quotes.
2. Provide basic contact information including: Name, Company Name, Position, Address, Phone Number, Email Address, and Site.
Vendors may join the BizKingdom network by filling out a form and agreeing to our Vendor contract. Registration as a Vendor is subject to the BizKingdom approval process. By filling out the form and agreeing to the contract, the Vendor gives us permission to forward the Vendor's information to businesses or consumers -Quote Seekers, who have requested quotes for service in categories you have requested to receive referrals/leads. To register as a Vendor, you need only provide the following information:
1. Provide general contact information including: Name, Company Name, Address, Phone Number, Email Address(es), and Site.
2. Select the categories for which you wish to receive referrals/leads and provide specific parameters as to the types of referrals you wish to receive.
3. Upon registration, the Vendor must also provide a valid credit card to be utilized for all billing activity.
BizKingdom.com will keep the identity of Vendors in our network confidential, unless the Vendor should choose to utilize any of the advertising opportunities that are offered by BizKingdom that would identify the Vendor as a member of our Approved Vendor Network. This would include, but not be limited to: logo ads, instant intros, newsletter ads, industry experts articles, and testimonials authorized for use on the Site.
