This policy defines the commitment of BoardActive Corporation (“BoardActive”) to protect the privacy of personal information that is collected or used in the course of providing services to our valued customers.
Collection of your Personal Information
Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by BoardActive. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through BoardActive’s public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.
BoardActive encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from, so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information.
BoardActive is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the BoardActive Website.
Use of your Personal Information
BoardActive collects and uses your personal information to operate the Website and deliver the services you have requested.
BoardActive may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from BoardActive.
BoardActive does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.
BoardActive may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to BoardActive, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
BoardActive may keep track of the pages on our Website that our users visit in order to determine what BoardActive services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within BoardActive to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
BoardActive will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on BoardActive or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of BoardActive; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of BoardActive, or the public.
The BoardActive website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize BoardActive pages, or register with BoardActive site or services, a cookie helps BoardActive to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same BoardActive Website page, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the BoardActive features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the BoardActive services.
Legal Basis for Collecting Your Personal Information
Whenever we collect personal information from you, we may do so on the following legal bases:
- Your consent to such collection and use;
- Out of necessity for the performance of an agreement between us and you, such as your agreement to use our solutions;
- Our legitimate business interest, including but not limited to the following circumstances where collecting or using personal information is necessary for:
- Intra-organization transfers for client data for administrative purposes;
- Product development and enhancement, where the processing enables us to enhance, modify, personalize, or otherwise improve our services and communications for the benefit of our users, and to better understand how people interact with our Website;
- Communications and marketing, including processing data for direct marketing purposes, and subject to your opt-in for these purposes, and to determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns and advertising;
- Fraud detection and prevention;
- Enhancement of our cybersecurity, including improving the security of our network and information systems; and
- General business operations and diligence.
In each circumstance, however, we will weigh the necessity of our processing for the purpose against your privacy and confidentiality interests, including taking into account your reasonable expectations, the impact of processing, and any safeguards which are or could be put in place. In all circumstances, we will limit such processing for our legitimate business interest to what is necessary for its purposes.
Our Retention of your Personal Information
We may retain your personal information for a period of time consistent with the original purpose for collection. For example, we keep your personal information for no longer than reasonably necessary for your use of our products and services and for a reasonable period of time afterward. We also may retain your personal information 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.
