The Budget Savvy Bride™ respects each individual user’s right to privacy. The Budget Savvy Bride™ and its sites do not collect personal identifying information unless such information is specifically and knowingly provided from users during contests, surveys, sweepstakes, giveaways, site registration, or use of public areas, such as a forum. The Budget Savvy Bride™ does not supply identifying information to other companies, or use such information for its own purposes including but not limited to email newsletters, unless the user “opts-in” for such purposes by specifically allowing usage. (Identifying information must necessarily be used when notifying a user of requested information, such as notification of a winning entry in a contest or sweepstakes.) The Budget Savvy Bride™ is not responsible for any actions or policies of such companies.

The Budget Savvy Bride™ uses reasonable precautions to keep the personal information disclosed to us secure. However, The Budget Savvy Bride™ is not responsible for any breach of security. If a user of The Budget Savvy Bride™ knowingly provides personal information, such as a name or email address, in a forum or other public service, that user should be aware that the information provided can be collected and used by third parties.
