We collect the following types of information from our BestSitePick’s users:

    We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features.
    • Link Recommendations: If you recommend a link to add to the site, we collect and store your submission information.

Sharing Your Information

BestSitePicks enables people to discover and share information with one another. Rest assured that we neither rent nor sell your personal information, or the information of those that you share with, to anyone and that we will share your personal information only as described below.

  1. We allow users of our Web site to send pages of links or individual links by email to other parties who may be interested in them. We do not retain the email addresses (unless you are a visitor who already has voluntarily provided your email address) of either the sender or recipient of such articles or links after they are sent.
  2. We reserve the right to use or disclose any information without notice or consent as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request; to conduct investigations of consumer complaints or possible breaches of law; to protect the integrity of our site and our property; to protect the safety of our visitors or others; to fulfill your requests; or to cooperate in any legal investigation.
  3. You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information online (whether through BestSitePick's services or any other service available online), personal or otherwise, that information can be collected and used by others. For example, if you use chat, forums, bulletin boards, your e-mail or if you post personal information online, you may receive unsolicited messages from others.
