INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
Log information – When you access Business Initiatives services, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
User communications – When you send email or other communications to Business Initiatives, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
Business Initiatives as a general rule does not permit children under the age of thirteen (13) to register with us or any affiliates of Business Initiatives. In the event that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of thirteen (13) without verification of parental consent, we will delete the information as soon as possible. We recommend that minors over the age of thirteen (13) ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the internet.
YOUR ONLINE ACCOUNT
When setting up an online account at our websites, you will be prompted to select a password. The retrieval of personal information relating to you and your order history is only available to you if you provide the correct password that you have created, and all profile information, is only available while you are logged in to your account. After providing your password, you can edit or delete your information at any time through the "my account" page.
If you forget your password, a new password will be assigned to you and will be emailed to your email address. We will not give passwords out over the phone, nor will we email them to a different address than the one used to register.
ELECTRONIC SECURITY INFORMATION AND EMPLOYEES
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of personally identifiable information transmitted to us using this website. To guard your information, our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL encrypts your credit card number, name and address so only our SSL provider is able to decode your information. Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information.
To be sure your connection is secure, look at the bottom status bar of your browser window. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser) the SSL is active and your information is secure. Most browsers offer additional security alerts as well.
We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
