BizRun, LLC (“BizRun”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) has created this Privacy and Security Statement (“Privacy Statement”) in order to demonstrate our commitment to you, our user (“you” or “your”) regarding your privacy with respect to information we may collect from you or you may submit to us by or through the BizRun.com website, ui.BizRun.com website, and/or other websites operated by BizRun (collectively, the “Websites”) or Services (defined below), whether you are a “Visitor” (which means that you simply browse Websites), a “Subscriber” of BizRun (which means you have either registered with BizRun and established an account or otherwise entered into a separate agreement with BizRun, with respect to the Websites and/or Services), or you are an employee, contractor or agent of a business, organization or individual that uses the Services for commercial purposes (a “Business Subscriber”), using the Websites or Services in your capacity as an employee, contractor or agent of that Subscriber (a “Business Subscriber User”). Visitors, Subscribers and Business Subscriber Users are each referred to individually as a “User” and collectively as “Users”.
Scope of this Privacy Statement
In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Websites and Services to you. We collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily.

We may request additional optional information to support your access to the Websites or Services. When you communicate with us by sending us an email, we may collect and store any information that is contained in your communications with us. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but this may limit the features of the Websites or Services you are able to use. Please note that if you are a Business Subscriber User, we may receive Personal Information about you from your Employer.

The contents of Imported Data can include both Personal Information and Anonymous Information such as email addresses, home addresses, telephone numbers and other content communicated over email or inside contact fields. We collect Imported Data that you have requested for us to collect from authorized third-party websites.

We will associate your Imported Data with your Personal Information or your Anonymous Information, as applicable.
