Your privacy is critically important to us. At BKT we have a few fundamental principles:
- You own your data
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services
- We will not sell your information to any 3rd party at any time for any reason
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Personally-Identifying Information is any information that that identifies you or would enable someone to contact you. We collect Personally-Identifying Information when you register to use our Services (see Terms of Service), ask a question, conduct a transaction, or send us an email. If you do not provide the requested information, you may not be able to access or use some or all of our Services.
Like most website operators, BKT collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. BKT’s purpose for collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how BKT’s visitors use the Site. From time to time, BKT may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site.
BKT routinely collects certain types of Personally-Identifying Information, like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, to identify its visitors, however, we do not disclose such information, other than under the circumstances described in this policy.
Certain visitors to the Site choose to interact with BKT in ways that require BKT to gather Personally-Identifying Information. The amount and type of information that BKT gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with BKT by purchasing services from BKT, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, BKT collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BKT. BKT does not disclose Personally-Identifying Information other than as described in this policy. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities or services.
Protection of Personally-Identifying Information
BKT uses physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your Personally-Identifying Information. We use commercially reasonable efforts to protect against malware, viruses, and spyware on our site or as part of the Service. By using the Site or Services you agree to release BKT from any liability associated with any technical issues caused by the Service, including any malware, viruses, or spyware communicated to your computer or mobile device through any use of the Service.
Wherever we collect sensitive financial information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way.
BKT takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access to its email lists.
Disclosure of Personally-Identifying Information
BKT will not rent or sell Personally-Identifying Information to anyone.
BKT discloses Personally-Identifying Information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to provide services available at the Site. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Site or Services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Except as described above, BKT discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when BKT believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or security of BKT, third parties, or the public at large.
BKT will transfer data from Gmail or Google products only when necessary to provide or improve user-facing features that are prominent in BKT’s user interface.
We may provide some aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics do not include Personally-Identifying Information. We do not provide this information relating to Google products, including Gmail, to any third-party vendors.
As BKT continues to grow, we may buy or sell businesses or assets. If all or substantially all of BKT’s business or assets are acquired by a third party, our users’ Personally-Identifying Information will generally be one of the transferred business assets. We reserve the right to include your Personally-Identifying Information, collected as an asset, in any such transfer to a third party.
Collection of Information from Minors
BKT does not direct our Service specifically to minors. We do not knowingly collect or use minors’ Personally-Identifying Information. If we learn that a user is a minor, we will promptly delete any Personally-Identifying Information we have collected about that user. If you are a minor, please do not send us any information about yourself.
