Some portions of BuildEffective.com allow you to contribute ratings, reviews, tags, comments, and other content on our Site. This content may be displayed publicly on BuildEffective.com and elsewhere on the web. The reviews and comments you publish may be displayed with your member or user name. Registered members can unpublish reviews by logging in to their accounts. For some of our features, other members may be able to request email notifications of your new public content or publish their own comments to your reviews. You can also choose to make your project information public, but they are private by default.
We may use the public content to develop aggregate ratings, personalize site views, market products or identify or feature popular members. For example, we may promote most popular or highest-earning reviews and members. While we don't expect to transfer the complete review rating and web of trust database to others (except as discussed in this policy), we use the database throughout our network and to generate results for others.
Choice/Opt-Out. At any time, you have the ability to opt out of receiving marketing communications from BuildEffective, but you may not opt out of administrative emails (for example, emails about your transactions or policy changes) while you are a member of BuildEffective. You can opt out by either changing your preferences or using the link provided at the bottom of each email message.
Email Tools. If you send emails to a recipient through our site, they will receive your email address and any personal message you include. Although we do not retain in any easily retrievable way the addresses you email, these emails are not private communications. You may not use our email tools to send spam or content that violates the User Agreement.
Anti-Spam Policy. BuildEffective does not tolerate spam. We do not send emails to anyone without permission, and we do not sell or rent email addresses to any unauthorized third party. This does not mean that we can prevent spam from happening on the Internet. If you believe that you have received an unsolicited email from us, please contact our Privacy Department and we will investigate.
