Who are we?
What personal data we collect & why we collect it?
To give you the best possible experience when using Bud Wize, we collect information from your interactions with our Services. Some of this information, you actively tell us (such as your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using Bud Wize , such as what pages you view (including how much of a given page and for how long) and your use of product features (subscribes, highlights, follows, and applause). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information (how you got to a particular page).
We use this information to:
- provide, test, improve, promote and personalize the Services
- fight spam and other forms of abuse
- generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use the Services
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Embedded content from other websites.
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with?
Bud Wize may share your data with other formations under the Bud Wize Name (with prior consent of course), including our holding company and its subsidiaries. We may disclose your personal data where Bud Wize believes it is compelled to do so by law; for the prevention or detection of crime, the capture or prosecution of offenders; and the assessment or collection of tax or duty. We do not require any further consent from you to share your data in such circumstances and Bud Wize will comply as required with any legally binding request that is made of it. In the event we propose to sell or buy any business assets or any part of our group of companies, we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets if relevant, but on a strictly confidential basis. We only ever disclose or share data within the bounds of the law.
As part of our terms and conditions, Bud Wize informs attendees to our events and webinars that “we will” pass personal data to the sponsoring third parties. This is stated at registration with access to the sponsor list. All data is date and time stamped, and should an individual decide not to share data they can email our Data team using [email protected] with their request.
Bud Wize will only share data with the Sponsors shown in the list at the time of registration for Events and Webinars.
We may compile and share statistics about the use of our websites including data on traffic, usage patterns, user numbers, sales and other information. All such data will be anonymized and will not include any personally identifying information.
How long we retain your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
You always have rights over your data.
If you have an account on this site (If accounts/subscriptions are available), or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
