Who we are

We at Brigma.com, we are an online community marketplace helping people of all type in the world to sign up as sellers, and sale their products to potential buyers. We do care deeply about the privacy of our website users. We believe in transparency, and we’re committed in our privacy practices, including that we treat your personal information sincerity. We also understand that you do care about your privacy and treat it that way as well and this policy statement explains our privacy practices.

Our website address is: http://www.brigma.com.

What we do with personal data we collect, and why we collect it?

In the course of providing our Services, we collect or receive your personal information in a few different ways. Often, you choose what information to provide, but sometimes we require certain information for you to use and for us to provide you the Services.

Registration, Account Setup, Service Usage: In order to use the Services, you need to provide us with a valid email address, and for Services that require registration, a name associated with your account that you can choose and that represents your identity on Brigma. You may review, change, or remove that name through your account settings. You need to provide this information to enable us to provide you with the Services. Depending on which services you choose to use, additional information, such as a shop name, billing and payment information (including billing contact name, address, telephone number, and credit card information), a telephone number, and/or a physical postal address, may be necessary in order for us to provide a particular service.

You are not required to provide us with this information to sign up, however, you could add all the rest of the information when updating your profile after you are done with registration, we will need it to provide certain services. For example, we need a physical postal address if you are buying something on the Site for delivery. Brigma may contact individual shop owners confidentially to request more information about their shops or items listed through the Services, or to ensure compliance with our rules and applicable law. In order to use certain products or services on Brigma, you may be required to complete an application; information that you submit through the application processes will not be displayed publicly and will only be used internally by Brigma, unless otherwise specified.

Location Information: We may collect information about your use of the Services for advertising, analytics, to serve content and to protect the Services, including your IP address, browser information (including referrers), device information (such as non-advertising purposes, Android, and when enabled by you, location information provided by your device). When you use our site, you may choose to share your geo-location details with Brigma in order to use functions like our local marketplace, maps, and in-person sales (although you don’t need to share these details). You may choose to publish your location when you sell on Brigma.

We may obtain location information you provide in your profile or your IP address. With your consent, we may also determine location by using other information from your device, such as precise location information from GPS or information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device. We may use and store information about your location to provide features and to improve and customize the Services, for example, for Brigma’s internal analytics and performance monitoring; localization, regional requirements, and policies for the Services; for local content, search results, and recommendations; for mapping services; and (using non-precise location information) marketing. If you have consented to share your precise device location details but would no longer like to continue sharing that information with us, you may revoke your consent to the sharing of that information through the settings. Certain non-precise location services, such as security and localized policies based on your IP address or submitted address, are critical for the site to function. We will only share your geo-location details with third parties (like our mapping, payments, or, to the extent applicable, advertising providers) in order to provide you with the Services.

Non-Member Information: Brigma may receive or obtain information (for example, an email address or IP address) about a person who is not yet a registered Brigma member (a “non-member”) in connection with certain Brigma features, such as when a non-member chooses to subscribe to an Brigma newsletter, a member invites a non-member to visit the Site, a member uploads non-member information using the contact form feature, a non-member engages in a transaction, or a member sends a gift card code to a non-member, or a non-member uses the Guest Checkout feature when making a purchase through one of the Services. Non-member information is used only for the purposes disclosed when it was submitted to Brigma or to facilitate action authorized by the non-member.
