Beers.Bg collects personal information to improve how we operate and offer our products and services, communicate with you about those products and services, and provide quick and efficient customer support when required.

Privacy on social networking sites

When you use the Beers.Bg website in conjunction with a Social Networking Site (such as Facebook, Google, Twitter or other similar services), your user ID, first and last name, profile picture and any other information you make publicly available may be received, stored, and viewed by Beers.Bg and made viewable to other users of the Social Networking Site.

When and how do we share your personal information with third parties?

Beers.Bg does not use your personal information for purposes incompatible with those listed above. Beers.Bg will never sell, rent, or share your personal information to a third party unless you consent to provide such information to a third party partner or content service; or unless such sharing is necessary for the purposes set out elsewhere in this Privacy Policy.

In some cases, access to certain products and services, such as content subscription products or products distributed by third parties, may require the provision of personal information to a third party, such as a content provider or distributor. In such cases, this will be stated during the registration process, in the terms of use, through the distribution process, or in a similar manner. The third party's use of such information is governed by that party's privacy policy, and Beers.Bg' use is governed by this privacy policy. Please visit the privacy policy of the content partner to make sure you understand how they use the personal information you provide to them. If you do not wish for such a transfer to take place, you should not register for the applicable product or service.

Beers.Bg may disclose relevant information about our customers to our contractors (e.g. a customer service contractor or a credit card clearing service) in order for them to provide specific services for Beers.Bg, and to better serve our customers. Beers.Bg' contractors are bound by strict contractual requirements to keep all personal information they process strictly confidential and to use such information solely on behalf of Beers.Bg.

Additionally, Beers.Bg may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law; (b) comply with the order of a competent judicial authority; (c) comply with legal process served on Beers.Bg; (d) protect and defend the rights or property of Beers.Bg; or (e) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Beers.Bg products or the public at large.

Beers.Bg websites, products and services contain links to other websites, and products and services. Because Beers.Bg does not manage such third party websites, products and services, they are not governed by this privacy policy. Beers.Bg is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Websites or products. Please visit the privacy policies of these third party sites in order to understand their privacy policies and data collection policies.

Email from Beers.Bg

Registering for a product or service allows you to tell us how or whether you want Beers.Bg to communicate with you. Generally, we send e-mail to you about our products, content and special offers.

Separate Beers.Bg products, services and lines of business may send separate newsletters and marketing emails. During registration, you may opt out of receiving Beers.Bg marketing e-mails and/or newsletters for the relevant product or service. Additionally, your online Beers.Bg account, accessed through any private area of the Beers.Bg website, and through other links provided in emails and on Beers.Bg Web pages, enables you to select whether you wish to receive newsletters, marketing and promotional emails, special offers and the like from us.

However, we may continue to send you e-mail about products or services you have previously purchased (such as an available upgrade that you are entitled to receive), your account status or other information concerning functions, features and status of your Beers.Bg products and services, or to inform you about critical technical service issues relating to a Beers.Bg product or service.
