- Information We Collect
We collect information to provide better Services to our users and consumers and so we can make decisions about ways to make our consumer community better. When you interact with BMS through our Services, Site, and apps, we may collect personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”) and other information from you, as further described below.
- Contact Information: When you enter your information through the use of our Site, Services, or apps, you enter it willingly in agreement with our T&C for such participation. We will collect and store the information you populate, regardless of whether you pay for Services, to include: your contact email address, name, address, website URL, phone number and other metadata assigned to you; we obtain this data you enter to create your profile, screen and to verify your information.
- Other Information: Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with BMS through the Site or our Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. BMS may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by BMS’s affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. There is not any available Personal Data in this process.
- Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Site and our Services, BMS may conduct research on its customer demographics, interests, and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and BMS may share it with BMS’ affiliates, agents, and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. BMS may also disclose aggregated user statistics to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third-parties for other lawful purposes.
- Location Information: Our Services and third-parties that are integrated into our Site may collect and use your actual location information (for example, by using the GPS on your mobile device, IP address, and other sensors that may provide BMS with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points, and cell towers, or when you submit a photo or other material that may contain geographic information in its metadata) to provide certain functionality for our Site and Services. We may also use your location information in an aggregate way, as described above in the "Aggregated Personal Data" section.
The above tracking technologies may be deployed by us or our Service providers on our behalf. By using our Site, you agree to our use of the above tracking technologies. You may refuse to supply Personal Data or opt out of data tracking by contacting us at the information below, with the understanding it may prevent you from using the Site, the Services, or engaging in certain Site- or BMS-related activities.
- Do Not Track Disclosure
Our third-party partners, such as ad networks, web analytics companies, and social media and networking platforms, may collect information about your online activities over time and across the Site and other online properties. These third-parties may not change their tracking practices in response to “Do Not Track” or “DNT” settings in your web browser, and we do not obligate these parties to honor DNT settings.
- How We Use Information We Collect
We use the information we collect to provide, maintain, protect, and improve our Services, to develop new Services, and to protect BMS and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content, like giving you more relevant search results and ads. We use information collected from cookies and other technologies to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our Services. We use user contact information (name, email, address) for educational and promotional purposes, such as sharing offers and new techniques and other educational information with you. If you provide Personal Data to obtain access to the Site or our Services, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to such Services and to monitor your use of such Services. BMS and its affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about Services we believe will be of interest to you. Each marketing communication we send will contain instructions permitting the recipient to “opt-out” of receiving future marketing communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below.
- Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information
We do not sell your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third-parties without further notice to you, as discussed above and set forth below:
- Agents, Consultants and Related Third-Parties: BMS, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases, analytics, and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
- Legal Requirements: BMS may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (i) comply with any applicable law, legal process, judgment, order, or enforceable governmental request; (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of BMS, including the enforcement of applicable T&C, including investigation of potential violations; (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our Services or the public, including the detection, prevention, or to otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; or, (iv) protect against legal liability.
