THE MEDIA SHARE
This area of the Site is for the benefit of Members. The Message Board and Media Share areas of the Site facilitate communication and the exchange and sharing of information between Consumers and Artists. The information contained on the Message Board between Consumers and Artists is not used for any purposes other than to facilitate communication and the exchange of information between the parties involved. BidaGig reserves the right to monitor communications in the Media Share in order to verify compliance with our Terms and Conditions, international, federal or state laws.
INFORMATION WE GATHER
Online Surveys and Contests
BidaGig may, from time or time, conduct a User survey to collect information about our Users’ preferences. These surveys are optional and if you choose to respond, your responses will be kept anonymous. Similarly, we may offer contests to qualifying Users in which we ask for contact and demographic information such as name, email address and mailing address. None of this information is shared with third parties, except in summary form, if at all. The demographic information that BidaGig collects in the registration process and through surveys is used to help us improve our services to meet the needs and preferences of our Users. This may include targeting advertising to you about our services. Information we gather through a contest may also be disclosed to third parties as necessary for prize fulfillment and other aspects of any contest or similar offering.
Automatically Gathered Information
BidaGig automatically collects browser type and browser software versions to tailor the presentation of the Site and the Services to the Visitor’s or User’s platform and to maintain a record of the User’s or Visitor’s activity on the Site. As an automatic process, our Web server software records a log file of IP addresses that access the Site. We also collect IP address information but do not ordinarily link IP addresses to Users’ Personal Information. However, we can and will use IP addresses to identify a User when we, in our sole discretion, determine that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms and Conditions or to protect our service, Site, customers or others. When you use the Site, BidaGig collects information about your Account transactions and BidaGig may collect information about your computer for fraud prevention purposes. Finally, BidaGig may collect additional information from or about you in other ways not specifically described here. For example, BidaGig may collect information related to your contact with BidaGig Customer Service or store results when you respond to a survey.
Email to Friends Feature and Referral Program
BidaGig lets you easily send listings to friends via email. BidaGig also offers the ability to send friends emails about providing or purchasing Services through BidaGig. If you choose to use either feature, be assured that BidaGig only uses your friends’ email addresses on a one-time basis to send the requested listing, and we use your email address to copy you on the message or to send on your behalf. Your friends’ email addresses will be deleted from our database after the message is sent.
HOW WE USE AND DISCLOSE INFORMATION
We use Personal Information for our own internal purposes including contacting you via email to inform you about updates to our services and providing you with information relating to e-commerce transactions that you conduct on the Site. We reserve the right to disclose your information as required by law. We do not rent or sell our Users’ Personal Information to third parties. We do, however, provide you with the opportunity to receive newsletters and notifications via email. If you decide to opt in to receive newsletters and notifications, you may opt out of receiving these newsletters and notifications at any time by clicking on the notifications tab of your preferences menu and unsubscribing from individual categories or globally opt out from receiving notifications.
We may send you email communications including information that we think may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these email communications either when you register to become a Member or via the Preferences section of your MyCP area. We do not send any of your Personal Information to our advertisers. You may see a cookie from a third-party banner server, and this cookie comes from the third- party banner server, not BidaGig. Again, we do not pass along any Personal Information to this party.
We share the email addresses of Artists and Consumers to each other once a gig is awarded and accepted to enable work on the Gig to be undertaken and completed. You agree not to use the disclosed information of other members for any purpose other than providing the applicable services and payments for a Gig.
BidaGig cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws, such as: intellectual property rights, fraud, theft, harassment and other rights. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you, including the content of your online communications, if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; (b) protect or defend the rights or property of BidaGig or third parties; (c) assist in an investigation; or (d) respond to an emergency that poses a threat to the safety of Users or other persons.

We will use commercially reasonable methods to keep Personal Information securely in our files and systems. The Paypal System is operated using secure Internet connections, using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption, to help protect your financial data.
