Collection of Information
Betagram Group collects information from its users when they register to gain access to our services or at other specific instances when they are requested to provide us with their personal & business information. During registration, we ask the users for their name, email address, book information, and other personal details. Once a user registers, he/she is no longer anonymous to the Betagram Group and it is deemed that the user has given Betagram Group the right to publish the desired book & personal details throughout its marketplaces.
When you are on our network and are asked for personal information, you are sharing the information with Betagram Group alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. Promotions that run on our network may be sponsored by companies other than Betagram Group or may be co-sponsored by Betagram Group and another company. Some or all data collected during a promotion may be shared with the sponsor. However, you can decide not to participate in the promotion if you don’t want your data to be shared.
We also gather usage statistics such as pages viewed, the number of unique visitors, browser software, screen resolution, etc. for analysis that helps us provide you with improved user experience and services.
