Information We May Collect
Active Information Collection: Like many websites, we collect information from our visitors from various means, including by asking specific questions on this Website, by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, and by allowing you to apply for employment. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.). When you visit the Website, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily.
Passive Information Collection: Some of the information we collect depends on the settings on your web browser. Please check your web browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. In addition to the information sent by your web browser, as you navigate through internet websites, certain information may be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means. These technologies include but are not necessarily limited to the following:
- Cookies: From time to time, we may place information on your computer to allow us to identify you. This information is known as a “cookie” and uniquely identifies your browser and helps us enhance your navigation through the Website. A cookie may also convey anonymous information about how you browse the Website to us. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. By understanding how and when our visitors use the Site, we can continually improve our Site, as well as our products and services. If you wish to disable cookies, your browser can be reset to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent.
- Tracers: In some instances, we use tracking scripts or “tracers” that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your hard drive by another website. These are used by B/A Products Co. to gauge the success of our own advertising. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of the internet unrelated to your interest in B/A Products Co.. Please note that B/A Products Co. does not use tracers to determine your personally identifiable information, and you remain anonymous.
- Web beacons: B/A Products Co. reserves the right to use electronic images known as web beacons, also referred to as single-pixel gifs, and any other successor technology, that permit us to count users who have visited certain Website pages and for other related statistics (e.g., recording the popularity of certain Website content and verifying system and server integrity).
