GATHERING AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
BVC does not collect personally identifying information about any individual except when knowingly provided by any such individual. If you do not want us to collect any personal information, do not submit it to us. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you can still visit most of the BVC Website, but you may be unable to access certain options and services or make any purchases of products or services. Your personal information may be stored and used by BVC to provide products or services to you and to contact you with respect to transactions conducted through the Website. We will not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to our business partners, suppliers, vendors or other third parties without notifying you of our intent to share the information and giving you an opportunity to prevent your information from being shared. We may, however, disclose information about our users when we believe, in good faith, that the disclosure is required by law.
GATHERING BROWSER LEVEL INFORMATION
Our Web server automatically collects information about a site user’s IP address, browser type and referrer (collectively, “Browser Level Information”) by reading this information from the user’s browser (information provided by every user’s browser). We store and use Browser Level Information, in the aggregate only, to diagnose problems with our Web server, to improve and track the success of the Website and to provide content of interest to you. Browser Level Information is automatically logged by most Websites. We may share Browser Level Information with advertisers or other third parties, including our business partners, suppliers, and vendors, on an aggregated basis without revealing any personally identifiable information and without the consent of any user.
BVC is concerned with the security of the personally identifiable information we have collected and had in place reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized access to that information. These measures include policies, procedures, and technical elements relating to data access controls. In addition, BVC uses standard security protocols and mechanisms to exchange the transmission of sensitive personal information. Although BVC has endeavored to create a secure and reliable Website, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via the Internet cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly, you should consider carefully if you want to submit sensitive information via the Internet.
