OFFiGO Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy Updated: 25/04/2018  

Being part of OFFiGO means sharing information about your business with the general public and other professionals and communicating with them, as well as working privately on your own. By default, your account is set up to share the information that we have found the vast majority of our Users are interested in sharing. However, the amount and type of information you decide to share is up to you. Here are the main types of information on OFFiGO:

  3. Any other contributions or community features available on OFFiGO.

 

You have control over what you share, and you can update information at any time.

 

  1. Communication

We help you to communicate with consumers and other business professionals. Some of this is through “contact the owner” and also through the business review section, where people can post their own personal reviews of a business. You decide how as well as how much or how little you wish to communicate with others on OFFiGO

  1. Private activity

 We also provide tools that you can use privately on OFFiGO (e.g. searching or sending messages to other businesses). These actions and information are private and confidential, so we don’t share or distribute them to others.

  1. We do not rent, sell, or otherwise provide your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes;
