In an effort to build users’ trust and confidence, BDAT promotes the principles of disclosure and informed consent. BDAT is committed to users’ privacy, and in furtherance of that commitment, BDAT discloses its policies on data collection, and the use and exchange of information obtained from visitors to the BDAT website.
As a general policy, no personal information is collected from visitors to the BDAT website. BDAT may capture implicit information (“Implicit Information”) from users who visit the BDAT website for aggregate statistical analysis and website customization. Implicit Information is data that can be gathered about users without having to explicitly ask a user for such information. Importantly, aggregate statistical analysis means that BDAT reviews trends based on information as a whole, but does not do so in an effort to identify the individual identity of any user of the BDAT websites. The information obtained is primarily used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor.
BDAT may solicit e-mail for site feedback and user opinion. Users may choose to submit such information at their own discretion. In no case will BDAT disclose any personal identifying information to third parties.
IP addresses are logged to track visitors to the BDAT websites. An IP address is the unique numerical identity of the user’s host computer. When BDAT logs an IP address, it means that the BDAT websites associate a visit, or a series of visits, to the unique numerical identity of the user’s host computer.
The BDAT websites may contain links to other websites that are not under the control or general supervision of BDAT. These links are provided as a convenience, and such links do not imply that BDAT endorses such sites. BDAT is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
