Your privacy is important to us. This privacy statement explains the personal information BSKB collects from you through interactions with you or your use of our services, and how we use that information.
What personal information do we collect?
We collect data to operate effectively and provide you with the most accurate information and services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you submit a website form. Some of the information may be collected by the way you use our websites. We may also obtain information about you through third parties where appropriate to provide you with the best service possible.
Details of your visits to the websites including date & time, IP address, the resources which were accessed, the referring site to our site and amount of data which was transferred between the server and the browser maybe recorded. Contents of web forms, session details and personally identifiable information other than IP address are not stored in website log files. This information is stored in an offline location and is used for internal traffic reporting and problem detection.
The standard ‘contact us’ form collects minimal information to identify who you are and why you are contacting us. This information submitted to a web form is used to generate an email message only. The information is not stored by the website or a related database or file. In general, web forms request the following information:
- Email Address
- Question or comment
Training seminar web forms allow you to register to attend an educational session hosted or conducted by us. This information submitted to a web form is used to generate an email message only. The information is not stored by the website but it may be transferred into our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to record the seminar registration (i.e. that you want to attend the seminar). In general, training seminar registration forms request the following information:
- Job title or role
- Experience level
- If you are a licensed attorney
- Knowledge of English
- Office address and contact information (phone, mobile, email)
- Seminar participation information, which can change from seminar to seminar
How do we use your personal information?
We use data collected about you to help operate our business and provide you with personalized service. We may also use the information to communicate with you, such as providing account or service updates. We may use data to show you relevant ads based on your use of our services, including our websites, and stated interests. This personalized approach to advertising may involve third parties, such as Google or Bing, to deliver ads to websites you use.
Do we share your personal information?
We may share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete specific transaction or provide services that you have requested or authorized. We may also share your personal data with vendors working on our behalf, such as an ad platform or email distribution service. In certain circumstances we may be required to share your personal information with law enforcement or investigating regulatory government agencies in response to a legal process (i.e. warrant).
How can you access your personal data?
How you access your personal data depends on the reason the information was collected and stored and the service for which it was collected. In general, any personal data collected from or about you will be stored within our computer network.
Our websites collect but do not store your personal data unless explicitly indicated when you submit a form or complete a subscription or account signup / registration process. Website forms generate an email message to the appropriate department or individual for review and, if necessary, action. The website does not store the information that you submit.
