Our policy is not to share the Personal Data we collect with third parties other than as specified below, or unless a user expressly consents to our sharing of certain information with a specified third party.
We will never share any Sensitive Personal Data with any other third party unless you have explicitly consented to such disclosure.
With your consent - We may share Personal Data about you for any lawful purpose to which you have expressly consented or directed, or to fulfill the purpose for which you provided the Personal Data to us.

Business Transfers - As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, sell, or share assets in connection with, for example, a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets, or bankruptcy.

We may retain your Personal Data for a period of time consistent with the original purpose of collection. For example, we keep your Personal Data for no longer than reasonably necessary for your use of our products and services and for a reasonable period of time afterward. If you are a customer, we may delete your Personal Data from our systems within sixty (60) days after termination of your agreement with us. We also may retain your Personal Data during the period of time needed for us to pursue our legitimate business interests, conduct audits, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

Similarly, if we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

We may contact you to request that you update your Personal Data on a regular basis to ensure its integrity for the purposes of ongoing data management.
We are committed to complying with applicable laws, regulations and mandatory government standards regarding the protection of Personal Data.
If we transfer your Personal Data out of your jurisdiction, we will implement suitable safeguards to ensure that your Personal Data is protected. When necessary under applicable laws, we require our third-party service providers to agree to terms and conditions addressing the data privacy, data security, adequate data protection and transfer of Personal Data, and containing the standard contractual clauses authorized by the Commission Decision of 5 February 2010 under Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.
We are very concerned with safeguarding your information. We employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, taking into account technological reality, cost, the scope, context and purposes of processing weighted against the severity and likelihood that the processing could threaten individual rights and freedoms. For example, we use commercially reasonable security measures such as encryption, firewalls, and transport layer security (TLS) or hypertext transfer protocol secure (HTTPS) to protect Personal Data.
Please note that no security system is impenetrable. Accordingly, we do not guarantee the security of our databases, nor that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet or other network. Any information you transmit to us, you do at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on or within our services. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting through the Sites in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Some Web browsers may be configured to send Do Not Track signals to websites, or users may use similar mechanisms, to indicate a user’s preference that certain web technologies not be used to track the user’s online activity. The Sites do not accept or process such Do Not Track signals or similar mechanisms.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Our services are not intended for anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on or through our services. If we learn we have collected or received Personal Data from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you are a parent or guardian or otherwise believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us so that we can delete the child’s information. Our services will never knowingly accept, collect, maintain or use any information from a child under the age of 13. If a child whom we know to be under the age of 13 sends Personal Data to us online, we will only use that information to respond directly to that child or notify parents.
BTES and its portfolio of companies reserves the right to not send gated materials requested by users of the Sites by submitting online forms, in order to protect company data.
