3. For what purposes do we use your personal information?

Generally, all information collected is used for the purpose provided for which you submitted the information to us or as otherwise identified at the point of collection or in this Privacy Notice. For example, if you sign up or register on a Budget TAIWAN website ("general website registration"), the information you provide is used to offer you the benefits and privileges that typically come along with registration. This may include access to and use of exclusive or personalized content or activities on the Budget TAIWAN website (e. g. message boards, upload features, personalized recipe boxes, etc.), participation in special events and promotions (contests, sweepstakes, coupons, etc.), and the ability to receive the communications or marketing materials you select at the time of registration or that automatically come with your registration.

When registering or providing information on Budget TAIWAN websites, you may also be given the option (through a check box or otherwise) to have your information used for an activity or service different from the primary activity or service that you are requesting. For example, if you are signing up for a contest or other promotion, you may also be able to sign up for newsletters or alerts from the website hosting the promotion or from other websites or Budget TAIWAN products. If you choose to receive these additional services, we will use your information to provide them to you.

We may also use your personal and/or demographic information for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve, personalize, and customize the products and services we provide you and to better meet your needs. This may include occasionally combining, updating, or otherwise enhancing the personal information collected through a Budget TAIWAN Website with data we receive from outside records or third parties.

Generally, we retain your personal information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you the services requested. Of course, if you request that we no longer use your personal information to provide you services (e. g. opt-out of receiving email) or would like to cancel your membership or account, please Contact Us.
