In the course of using our Site, we automatically track certain information such as your IP addresses and email addresses. Many sites automatically collect this information. The information that is collected may also indicate your special preferences or requests.

Security of Personal Information Collected by the Site

Consistent with the Policies set forth in this Privacy Statement, the Site has adopted and implemented reasonable and technologically feasible procedures for maintaining the security, accuracy and integrity of all personal information relating to you that is collected by the Site. As “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, you should consider any information provided to or collected by the Site as non-confidential, and consequently the Site assumes no liability or responsibility if any information relating to you or any other person is intercepted and/or used by an unintended recipient. The Site also links to a wide variety of other web sites, and the Site may contain advertisements of third parties. We are not responsible for the content and the privacy practices of other web sites or how they treat information about their visitors and users, and encourage you to examine each site’s privacy policy and disclaimers and make your own decisions regarding the accuracy, reliability, and correctness of material and information found.

Our Use of Your Information

The Site may collect, use and store (but only in its own data facility) http requests to our server. These logs capture computer information, navigation and clickstream data. Some of the information collected does not identify who you are. Other information, such as your domain name or IP address, may identify you depending on the naming standards followed by your Internet Service Provider. You may wish to ask them about their policies and practices.

While we make no attempt to link the information captured to the identity of individuals, the information captured does identify the following: (a) the Internet domain and IP address from which you access our web site; (b) the type of browser and operating system used to access our site; (c) screen resolution of your monitor; (d) the date and time you access our site; (e) the pages you visit; and (f) if you linked to our Site from another web site, the address of that web site.

This information is used to help us make our site more useful to our users by learning about the number of visitors to our site, and by monitoring traffic patterns and the types of technology our visitors use.

“OPT-IN” — Some Offers may be presented to you with the option to express your preference by either clicking or entering “accept” (alternatively “yes”) or “decline” (alternatively “no”). By selecting or clicking the “accept” or “yes” you indicate that you “OPT-IN” to that Offer and thereby agree and assent that your personal information and data may be disclosed to third-parties.

“OPT-OUT” — Other Offers may be presented with a pre-selected preference or choice. If you do not deselect the pre-selected preference of choice (i.e. “OPT-OUT” of the Offer) then the Site may transfer your personal profile information to the third-party service or content provider making the Offer. If you deselect the pre-selected preference, then no personal information about you may be disclosed to any third-party service or content provider.

The Site also offers you a procedure for “Opting-Out” if you subsequently choose to revoke any consent to receive Offers by emailing info@bongarde.com and entering in the exact email address to be “Opted-Out”.
