II. How we collect and use your information

User Account Information. When you create an account on the Site, we collect and store information such as your name (First Name and Last Name), email address, password, country, city, gender, and a picture of yourself, among others. We also provide an alternative to import some of your profile information from a third party (i.e. Facebook) in order to make the registration process easier. During registration we also collect and store other personal details concerning your wedding. Noeeva uses your name to provide you with a personalized experience throughout the Site. We use your email address as your User ID to sign in to the Site, and also to send updates and provide services in connection with the Site. We use your registered geographic location (i.e. country, city) to help us target the appropriate city you live in and display relevant vendor, advertising and content information to you. Other personal details are collected to generate a detailed profile of you. Personal wedding details and other information collected through the Site are used to enable certain features of the Site, for market research purposes and in order for you to access your information across different platforms or devices (i.e. Personal Computer, Mobile Phone, etc.).

Your public profile is comprised of your name, picture, city and wedding date, and it is available to the public for discovery purposes in search results, find other users and linking public content to identifiable users (in public features such as Reviews, Forums, Comments, etc.).

We may, in the future, include other optional requests for information from you to help us tailor the Site for you and deliver personalized information to you.

If you join Noeeva through a third-party service, please take the time to review the third-party privacy policies. Noeeva is not liable to you for any use of your Personal Information by a third-party service (i.e. Facebook).

You agree that you will be responsible for maintaining your password as confidential and for any activity that occurs on your Account as a result of you sharing your password with another or failing to protect it. Noeeva is not responsible for any loss or damage arising from your failure to maintain the confidentiality of your password.

If you signed in through a Third Party service such as Facebook, your password will be created and controlled by our systems.

Vendor Account Information. When a vendor creates an account on the Site, we collect and store information such as the business name, email address, password, address, city, country, service, business description, and other details concerning the vendor's business. We use the provided email address as the UserID to sign in to the Site, and also to send updates and provide services in connection with the Site. All other provided and collected information throughout the Site are used to create a thorough profile of the business and display it on the Site for users to see and use.

All of the information provided by the vendor in the profile section becomes public for users to use it to their convenience.
