The Short Version
At Shemzy.com we want you to feel safe about your privacy. We do not trade or rent your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes without your confirmation. We do not disclose it to others except as disclosed in this Policy.
We gather information that you provide us or voluntarily share with other users, and also some general technical information that is automatically gathered by our systems, such as IP address so you have a better user experience.
We will not share information that you give us during the process of the registration - including your contact information - except as described in this Policy. Information that you choose to publish on the Site (adds, text, pictures) - is no longer private, in the same way like any information you publish online.
Technical information that is gathered by our systems automatically may be used for Site operation, optimizations, analytics and promotion of content and enhancement of user experience. We may use the information you give us to contact you - to provide notifications related to your activities, but we will not allow any other person, including other users of the Site, contact you, other than through your user profile on the Site.
The personal information you give us may be stored in systems based in different countries, and may be processed by third party service providers acting on behalf of us. These providers may be based in countries that do not provide an equal level of protection for privacy as that you have in the country in which you live. In that case, we will provide for adequate safeguards to protect your personal information.
