We encourage you to read this Policy before using our Site. By using the Site, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Policy. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Policy, please do not use the Site.
1. Information B&W Gathers Through the Site.
B&W gathers two basic types of information through the Site: “Personal Information,” from which an individual can be identified, and “Aggregate Information,” from which an individual cannot be identified.
a. Aggregate Information. When you visit and interact with the Site, B&W and third parties with whom B&W has contracted to provide services to B&W may collect anonymous information from three sources: server log files, cookies, and “pixel tags.”
iii. Pixel Tags. The Site may use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened.
b. Personal Information. You are not required to register or provide Personal Information in order to access our Site, though certain functionalities (such as submitting a contact form) require Personal Information. We collect Personal Information from you only when you voluntarily provide it to us: for example, in contacting us through the Site, answering surveys and polls, signing up for email updates and announcements concerning our products and services. Personal Information may include your contact information (such as your name, postal address, telephone numbers and/or email address).
2. Use and Disclosure of Information B&W Gathers Through the Site.
a. Personal Information. We may use your Personal Information in any of the following ways:
i. Communications. We encourage Visitors to contact us with questions and comments. Personal Information may be used in order to respond to your questions and comments.
ii. Business Purposes. We may also use your Personal Information for internal business purposes, such as analyzing and managing our businesses. The Personal Information you provide through the Site may be combined with other information you provide to B&W (via online or offline means), with demographic information and other information that is publicly available, or with other information about you that B&W may otherwise obtain online or offline.
b. Aggregate Information. We analyze Aggregate Information in order to enhance website security, track the popularity of certain pages of the Site, the success of our email notifications, traffic levels on the Site and other usage data, all of which helps us to provide tailored content, improve the Site and related services and to otherwise enhance your experience on the Site. We may share Aggregate Information with Affiliated Entities and other third parties.
3. Other Important Notes Regarding Our Privacy Practices.
a. Special Note for Parents. B&W takes seriously its obligations under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act concerning the collection of Personal Information from individuals under the age of thirteen (13). The Site is not directed at children, and we request that children under the age of 13 not provide Personal Information through the Site.
b. Security. We have security measures and tools in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. No method of transmitting or storing data is completely secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us through or in connection with the Site.
4. Changes to This Policy.
We reserve the right to change this Policy and any of our policies or procedures concerning the treatment of information collected through the Site without prior notice. You can determine when this Policy was last revised by referring to the “Last Updated” legend at the top of this page. Any changes to our Policy will become effective upon posting of the revised Policy on the Internet, accessible through the Site. Use of the Site following such changes constitutes your acceptance of the revised Policy then in effect. We encourage you to bookmark this page and to review it periodically to ensure familiarity with the most current version of our Policy.
This Policy represents the sole authorized statement of B&W’s practices with respect to the collection of Personal Information through the Site and B&W’s use of such information. Any summaries of this Policy generated by third party software or otherwise (for example, in connection with the Platform for Privacy Preferences or “P3P”) shall have no legal effect, do not bind B&W, shall not be relied upon in substitute for this Policy and neither supersede nor modify this Policy.
