What is "Personally Identifiable Information?”
"Personally identifiable information" refers to information by which someone can determine the identity of another person.
What Personally Identifiable Information Does bpaa.com Collect?
In some instances, it is necessary for bpaa.com to collect personal information about you to provide a service or carry-out a request. Depending on how you use bpaa.com (register, purchase), we may ask for some, or all, of the following:
- physical address
- email address
- BPAA membership number
- zip code
- phone number
- credit card information
- household income
As a user of bpaa.com, you have the opportunity to receive email communications – from bpaa.com, the member organizations and third parties – about topics of interest to you. To help us determine what your interests are, we sometimes give you the opportunity to select specific items from a list of topics about which you would like to receive information. Some of these topics include:
- Membership Information
- Personal Interests (Travel, Sports, Business, Health, etc.)
How Does bpaa.com Use This Information?
We use the Personal and Preference data you provide us to enhance your experience with bpaa.com – to provide you with information and communications that, based on the information you submitted, we think you will find valuable – and to build a demographic profile of bpaa.com users (not including names/addresses/phone numbers/email addresses) for advertisers and sponsors.
We may use your registration data for the following:
- Send you, via email, information about topics in which you have expressed an interest.
- Contact you in the event that you are a winner of a sweepstakes or promotion.
- Provide your personal information to selected third parties only after you have granted us permission to do so.
- Contact users for feedback regarding bpaa.com and bpaa.com’s partners via email surveys.
We may also use the information we collect to develop summary reports for our advertisers and sponsors. An example of a summary report might be "100,000 people clicked on this link and of those people, 35% were registered users above the age of 25."
We provide this information to assist our advertisers and sponsors in determining how to promote their products and services. We do not share with them who it was that saw or clicked on their advertisements unless you have specifically granted us permission to do so.
Unless you have chosen not to receive information or communications from selected third parties, we also may provide a report to our advertisers and sponsors which tells them who responded to a particular offer. For example, we might send you an email which offers you a discount on particular service. If you click on that e-mail or accept an offer or discount contained therein, we may provide the third party with the information necessary to provide you with that discount.
bpaa.com has implemented industry-standard security measures to ensure that your personal information is protected.
All financial and information transactions are protected by an encrypted security service provided by Data Secure EFSnet, one of the Internet’s leading security providers. Also, under no circumstances, unless required by law, will credit card information be made available to anyone other than those parties necessary to execute a transaction.
bpaa.com also has systems in place to restrict internal access to your personal information. Unless you grant us permission to share your personal information with third parties, access is limited only to bpaa.com Web site administrators, who require this knowledge to perform their duties.
We hope this policy has provided you the information you need and answered any questions you may have regarding bpaa.com’s commitment to your privacy and security.
