How do we gather data by automatic means?

We collect IP addresses for site security and to help us understand how people use the site. We use cookies which contain bits of information that websites transfer to your computer’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. We may give your browser a cookie.

In addition to cookies, we may use web beacons which allow us to count users who have visited specific pages or access certain cookies. We may use web beacons to count and recognize users, conduct research on behalf of some partners on their websites, and for auditing purposes. In addition, we may use this method to aggregate information about users, including demographic and usage information. Our advertising networks that serve ads on our site may also use web beacons in their advertisements. Any image viewed as part of a web site including an ad banner, can act as a beacon.

We use IP addresses for working on technology problems, maintaining security, displaying advertising or content to particular users, analyzing the ways in which people use the site and how we can improve it, and for reporting to advertisers about aggregate information from IP addresses.

We use cookies to gauge our audience size and patterns. We use cookies to target content and ads based upon user interests. Our advertising networks may place or use a unique cookie on your browser.

We may use third-party networks to serve advertisements on the site and in our emails. These third-parties may use cookies, and/or similar technologies. BNK does not control or access these cookies. Use of their tracking technology is subject to their own privacy policies.

Internet tags, graphic tags and similar web beacon type functions allow us to count the number of users who have visited a particular web page or to access certain cookies. We may use web beacons on this website to count users and to recognize users by accessing our cookies. Being able to access our cookies allows us to personalize this website and improve your experience at this website. We may also include web beacons in HTML-formatted e-mail messages that we send to determine which e-mail messages were opened. Like cookies, web beacons do not collect or contain your personal information.

How do we share personal information?

Except as described, we do not sell, transfer or otherwise disclose to third parties the personal information we collect on this website. At times we provide your personal information to joint promotion partners and third parties who provide services on our behalf. These entities may use the information solely in conjunction with the specific promotion services they provide for us (e.g. fulfillment of an order; responding to your question or comment; providing a promotional prize; deployment of a consumer survey; investigation of a complaint).

To the extent we enter into such arrangements with service providers, agents and contractors to store, handle or process personal information on our behalf, such as for data processing, document storage software support and office services, our policy will be to require such parties by contractual or other means to provide comparable privacy protection while the information is processed or handled by them.

We reserve the right to transfer any personal information we have about you in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets to a third party. Further, we reserve the right to disclose any personal information as needed if such information is requested by law enforcement agencies or if we are requested to do so by law, regulation, court order, or by a government entity. We may also disclose your personal information to third parties if we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to: (i) conduct investigations of possible breaches of law; (ii) cooperate in any legal investigation; (iii) identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms of Use of this website; or (iv) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property. Lastly, we may disclose your personal information for any other purpose to which you consent.

Links to other websites

This website may contain links to the websites of our subsidiaries and affiliates, and to websites that are independently owned and operated by third parties. These other websites may have their own privacy policies and are not governed by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any website(s) owned and operated by any such subsidiaries, affiliates or third parties. Other websites may collect and treat information collected differently, so we encourage you to carefully read and review the privacy policy for each website you visit.

At different points while using this website you may be offered reports, services, products, or other content from our advertisers and sponsors which would require you to expressly opt-in to their offer. These sponsors and advertisers may have their own privacy policies and are not governed by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any website(s) owned and operated by any such affiliates, third parties, sponsors or advertisers. Other websites may collect and treat information collected differently, so we encourage you to carefully read and review the privacy policy for each offer before opting-in. In the event you do not want an advertiser to have your personal information, then do not sign up for that advertiser’s offer.

Chat rooms and message/bulletin boards

If you use chat rooms and message/bulletin boards that may be available on this website, you should know that when you voluntarily disclose your personal information on a message/bulletin board, chat or other interactive area where personal information can be posted, the information can be collected and used by other internet users. This may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. We undertake no obligations as to the security of information you voluntarily post in chat rooms and/or on message/bulletin boards.

Children’s privacy

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children and we do not knowingly solicit personal information from children under the age of 18. If a child has already provided us with personal information, his or her parent or guardian may contact us for the purpose of deleting this information.

How we protect personal information

The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards (appropriate to the sensitivity of such information) designed to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access of the personal information we collect on this website. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us. All third parties that obtain personal information from us (e.g. service providers that perform functions on our behalf) are contractually required to protect your confidentiality and personal information in a manner consistent with this policy, and/or as required by law.

Some or all of the personal information we collect may be stored or processed on servers located outside your jurisdiction of residence, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the personal information that are equivalent to those that apply in the country in which you live.

Data retention policy

We do not keep your personal information for longer than required. We will keep your personal information:

  • For as long as required by law
  • Until we no longer have a valid reason for keeping it
  • Until you request us to stop using it.

  • the right to object to automated decision making;
  • the right for the personal data being updated; and
  • the right to be forgotten.

Changes to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to change or replace this Privacy Policy at our sole discretion at any time. Please check back from time to time to ensure that you are aware of any updates or changes in this Privacy Policy.
