“Non-personally identifiable information” is information that any single item of which, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact You, such as demographic information (for example, age, profession, gender, current location and other geolocation information, zip code, birth date, or year of birth) Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, information relating to Your device, domain names, and other statistical data involving the use of the Website. Certain non-personally identifiable information may be considered a part of Your personally identifiable information if it is combined with other identifiers (for example, combining Your zip code with Your street address) in a way that enables You to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered non-personally identifiable information when they are taken alone. With respect to location information, please note that We may use satellite, Wi-Fi or other network-based location data, such as Your IP address. Use of assisted positioning methods may involve exchanging Your location data wireless network identifiers along with Your unique device or network service provider identifiers with a location server. Your device may connect to other service providers’ servers, which are not controlled and operated by BBK.
“Personally identifiable information” is any information that could be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom it relates (such as name, residence, telephone number, e‑mail address, user names and passwords; Your consents, preferences and self-identifying feedback; certain information relating to Your device; or any other identifying information).
"Personal information" is information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
"We, Us, Our" means BBK Worldwide, LLC and TCN Technologies LLC.
SUMMARY OF POLICY:
Except as provided herein or as authorized by You, Your personally identifiable information may be disclosed by Us only to our controlled subsidiaries and affiliates. We use appropriate security measures to protect any personally identifiable information We transmit or store.
HOW INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
Submission by You and Third Parties
We will collect personally identifiable and other information from You if You voluntarily submit the information to Us through any mechanism (including online and offline channels), such as when You register for an account, provide responses to questionnaires, or submit inquiries to Us. In addition, We may receive personally identifiable and other information about You from third parties.
Cookies and Action Tags
We may collect non-personally identifiable information passively using “cookies” and “action tags.”
“Cookies” are small text files that are placed on Your computer or mobile device in order to identify Your web browser and the activities of Your computer or mobile device when using the Website. Cookies are used to personalize Your experience on the Website (such as dynamically generating content on webpages specifically designed for You), to assist You in using the Website (such as saving time by not having to reenter Your name each time You use the Website), and to allow Us to statistically monitor how You are using the Website to help Us improve Our offerings.
You do not have to accept cookies to use the Website. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, You may reset Your browser to notify You when You receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the "Help" section of the toolbar. However, if You reject cookies, certain features or resources of the Website may not work properly and You may experience some loss of convenience.
“Action tags,” also known as web beacons or gif tags, are a web technology used to help track website usage information, such as how many times a specific page has been viewed. Action tags are invisible to You, and accessing any online service, including advertisements, from the Website may result in the creation of action tags.
By using cookies and action tags together, We are able to gain valuable information to improve Our Website and other services and measure the effectiveness of Our advertising and marketing campaigns.
We also may collect non-personally identifiable information through our Internet log files, which record data such as user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Website. This information may be used to analyze trends, to administer the Website, to monitor the use of the Website, and to gather general demographic information. We may link this information to personally identifiable information for these and other purposes such as personalizing Your experience on the Website and evaluating the Website in general.
USE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION:
Except as otherwise provided in this Policy, or as authorized by You, We will keep Your personally identifiable information private and will not share it with third parties outside Our controlled subsidiaries, affiliates and suppliers, unless such disclosure is necessary and permitted by applicable law to: (a) comply with applicable law, legal process (such as a court order, subpoena, or search warrant) or other legal requirements of any governmental authority; (b) protect Our rights or property; (c) enforce any terms and conditions of use or agreements applicable to the Website or other of Our services or websites (“Services”) and that incorporate this Policy by reference; (d) protect the interest of users of Our Services (other than You), or any other person or the general public; (e) detect fraud; or (f) operate or conduct maintenance and repair of Our Services or equipment. In order for You to access certain services that We may offer via the Website or otherwise, We may require You to provide Us with personally identifiable information.

You may choose not to provide Us with any personally identifiable information. In such an event, You can still access and use much of the Website. You, however, will not be able to access and use those portions of the Website that require Your personally identifiable information.
We collect, and may use for marketing and other similar purposes, the e-mail addresses and other personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information of users, aggregate information on what pages visitors access, and any other information volunteered by visitors such as survey or registration information. For example, without requiring a user to “opt-in,” we may send the user electronic newsletters, contact the user about products, services, information, and news that may be of interest to the user, and provide the user with targeted feedback. In addition, if a user identifies himself or herself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use the user's information (including personally identifiable information) to respond to the user's questions or comments, and we may file such questions or comments for future reference. We may also use the information collected to send important service announcements and updates regarding the Website or, if applicable, about billing account status. In addition, we may use the information gathered on the Website to perform statistical analysis of user behavior or to evaluate and improve the Website. We may link some of this information to personally identifiable information for internal purposes only or to improve users’ experience with the Website.
Except as otherwise stated in this Policy or as authorized by You, We use Your personal information in a way that is compatible with and relevant for the purpose for which it was collected. To the extent necessary for these purposes, We take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.
If You no longer wish to have Your personal information disclosed to third parties, You may choose to “opt-out” by notifying Us to that effect. To do so, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. please be aware that your personal information may have been disclosed to third parties prior to our receipt of your notification. also, bbk will provide you with notice before using your personal information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you, and you may choose to “opt-out” of such use by following the directions provided in the notice. however, even after any “opt-out” or removal of your personal information, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information to a third party when we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process.
If We collect information from You specifying medical or health conditions; racial or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious, ideological, or philosophical beliefs; trade union membership; information on social security measures or administrative or criminal proceedings or sanctions (which are treated outside pending proceedings); or information with respect to personal sexuality (collectively, “Sensitive Information”), We will not (a) disclose such Sensitive Information to a third party or (b) use such Sensitive Information for a purpose other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by You without obtaining Your affirmative “opt-in” (unless We believe in good faith that We are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process).
