1. Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information is information that can be used to identify or contact an individual. When you provide us with your Registration Information in order to use the Service, we collect your personal information that includes your name, email address, and place of residence (“Personal Information”).
In providing us with your Personal Information, you agree that we may collect, store and use this information for the following purposes: creating your account with Bazinga; permitting Bazinga to contact you directly regarding the Service; for Bazinga’s internal business purposes, such as conducting research and development to improve Bazinga’s products, services, and communications; to help resolve potential abuses or prevent activities that are prohibited as set out in the Agreement; and to send you important notices, such as communications about the Services or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Bazinga, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
2. Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
Bazinga also collects non-personal information, which is information that is in a form that does not directly associate the information with a specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose.
For example, we collect non-personal information about your home (such as its square footage, the number of rooms, and fixtures), your building, and your neighbourhood. Bazinga works with your real estate developer, property manager, strata council or condo board to collect this information. This information is specific to your building and your home, but does not include any information that can be used to identify you.
We may also collect non-personal information such as the city, date, time, browser type, and device type relevant to how and when Users use the Service so that we can better understand customer behavior, improve the Service and provide other products and services in the future.
We may also collect non-personal information regarding User activities on the Site and from the Service.
3. Cookies and Other Technologies

As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the Service, and to learn about User behavior. Bazinga may aggregate this information for any purpose, including for use in our marketing and advertising campaigns.
4. Disclosure to Third Parties
At times Bazinga may provide certain of your Personal Information to third-parties that Bazinga engages to provide the Service and other products and services to Users.

Bazinga will only share Personal Information with these third parties to provide or improve the Service and other products and services; we will not share your Personal Information with third parties for their marketing purposes.
Bazinga may share your Personal Information with companies who provide services such as information processing, data management, and customer service. Some of these companies may be located outside of Canada, and by accepting the Agreement you consent to us providing your Personal Information to companies located outside of Canada. These companies are obligated to protect your Personal Information.
We will not share your Personal Information with any other party unless required by law.
5. Protection of Personal Information
