A CoGoBuzz™ User (“User”) is defined as anyone connected via wireless or wired to the CoGoBuzz™ Solution (the “Solution”) that is authorized as a Transient Connection. A Transient Connection is a connection that utilizes a public network typically created for internet access for other than business operations of the venue by individuals on a nonpermanent basis. Transient Connections may use any one of several access control methods on a CoGoBuzz™ Public Network configuration, to include, but not limited to: Authorization Code; Single Click; or Social Media / 3rd Party Authorization.

In all forms, the OpInfo may used to improve the services of the Solution, services of the venue, as well as offers, support, recommendations, security, compliance, and guidance for all aspects of the User experience.
