How we use Personal Information

We may use your personally identifiable information to: deliver certain services and information you have requested, verify your authority to enter certain password protected areas of the Site and/or Services, and improve the content and general administration of the Site and the Services. If you are a user of our Services, we will use your personally identifiable information to provide the Services to you and to provide user support to you.

 

Aggregate Information

The Site and Services may track the total number of visitors to our Site and/or Services, browser type, External Web Sites (defined below) linked to and other aggregated data collected through our Site and Services.  We may analyze this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate.  Such information will be maintained and used in aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable information.  We also may use such aggregate information to administer the Site and Services and track users’ movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use such as to improve BIGcontrols’ Services.

 

Cookies

Like many Web sites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses this Site and/or the Services. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide customized features to you. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. We use persistent cookies on our Site and in our Services to determine if you have logged in to the Site and/or Services in the past and if you have previously logged in, to populate your login username and password.  A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time.

 

Information Sharing And Disclosure

We may provide your personally identifiable information and the aggregate information to the vendors and service agencies that we may engage to assist us in providing our Services to you, such as our third party hosting providers. We will disclose your personally identifiable information and aggregate data if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority or to assist in any investigation, to protect our or our users’ rights or to enforce our customer agreements.  We will not sell your personally identifiable information to any company or organization except we may transfer your personally identifiable information to a successor or parent entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which BIGcontrols participates or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of BIGcontrols’ assets to which this Site and/or services relates.

 

Children

BIGcontrols recognizes the privacy interests of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests.  This Site and our Services are not intended for use by children under the age of 13. BIGcontrols does not target this Site or the Services to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifying information from children on this Site or through our Services.

 

Links To Other Sites and Tracking

The Site may provide links to other web sites or resources over which BIGcontrols does not have control (“External Web Sites”).  Such links do not constitute an endorsement by BIGcontrols of those External Web Sites.  You acknowledge that BIGcontrols is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and further agree that BIGcontrols is not responsible for the content of such External Web Sites.  Your use of External Web Sites is subject to the terms of use and privacy policies located on the linked to External Web Sites. At this time, we do not track users over multiple websites and therefore we do not respond to browser ‘Do Not Track’ signals, as we await the work of interested stakeholders and others to develop standards for how such signals should be interpreted.

 

Security

We employ industry standard procedural and technological measures that are reasonably designed to help protect your personally identifiable information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.  BIGcontrols may use, without limitation, firewalls, password protection, secure socket layer, and other security measures such as restrictions on internal data access to help prevent unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information.

 

Notice to European Users

The Site and Services are intended for use by users located in the United States of America only.  The information you enter on the Site or Services or otherwise provide to BIGcontrols may be transferred outside of the European Union to the United States of America, which does not offer an equivalent level of protection to that, required in the respective country. In particular, you are advised that the United States of America uses a sectoral model of privacy protection that relies on a mix of legislation, governmental regulation, and self-regulation. Article 26 of the European Union’s Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC, 1995 O.J. (L 281) 31) allows for transfer of personal data from the European Union to a third country if the individual has unambiguously given his or her consent to the transfer of personal information, regardless of the third country’s level of protection. By agreeing to this Privacy Policy, you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States of America which may not offer an equivalent level of protection to that required in the respective countries and to the processing of that information by BIGcontrols on its servers located in the United States of America as described in this Privacy Policy.
