WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
FaveCentral collects information based on content submitted by users, such as full name and email address. FaveCentral does not sell or share your email address with any third party companies or lists. By default, when you sign up for an account on FaveCentral, we opt you in to receive emails from FaveCentral, business owners and other FaveCentral users. Email addresses are only displayed to the owning registered user when they are logged in and viewing their own profile. Never will FaveCentral display your email address to another user visiting your profile, even when a mutually agreed friendship is present.
FaveCentral also collects user-submitted information such as city, state, zip and country. Your default location, entered as City and Country, is shared publicly via your personal profile by default, but can be disabled by editing your profile.
FaveCentral also collects user-submitted photos, reviews and ratings of businesses and Service providers. This user-submitted information is public by default and accessible to all users of FaveCentral.
