WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
When you visit our Site you may provide us with two types of information: 1) personal information you knowingly choose to provide that is collected on an individual basis, and 2) certain technical information about your mobile device or computer system, including IP Address, web browser, mobile device ID and the version of your operating system, and Site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Site.
PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU CHOOSE TO PROVIDE
You will provide us information about yourself, your firm or company, and your practices when you register for email newsletters and electronic communications. You may also provide additional comments relating to BoyarMiller’s services.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages and any attachments together with your email address and our responses.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION AND SITE USE INFORMATION
Similar to other commercial Sites, our Site utilizes Web server logs to collect information about how our Site is used. Information gathered through server logs may include, without limitation, the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Site, and the websites visited just before and just after our Site.
BoyarMiller uses two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies have a temporary “life” and are set to only remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Site. We use these on an anonymous aggregate basis to analyze the total number of visitors to our Site and which pages the user visited.
These session cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Site is being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our Site for you.
To assist in determining the effectiveness of BoyarMiller’s online advertising, BoyarMiller uses persistent cookies provided by LinkedIn. When a visitor clicks an ad on the platform and lands on boyarmiller.com, the cookie tells us the ad brought the visitor to BoyarMiller.
These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our Site through third-party social networking and other Sites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes.
BoyarMiller may use other tracking technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). Web beacons are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Site or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page to another within a Site, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the Site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve Site performance, or to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Flash Cookies and Local Shared Objects
The Site may also use so-called “Flash cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to collect and store information about your use of the Site, our services, and/or for fraud prevention and other Site operations.
If you do not want Flash cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash cookies storage using the tools contained in the Site storage settings panel. You can also control Flash cookies by going to the global storage settings panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).
Please note that setting the Flash player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.
What Happens if I Opt-Out of Cookies?
You can delete these cookies at any time from your browser settings and also change your browser settings to opt-out of cookies. However, if you opt-out out of BoyarMiller cookies (also called “first-party” cookies), not all parts of the Site will work properly.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE TO US?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding our business activities, providing customer service, and making available services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Site or our business, new services, and other information we think you will find valuable. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these communications by emailing us at email@example.com. Finally, we may use such information collected to improve our Site by enabling us to estimate usage patterns, store information about your preferences, customize your interaction with the Site according to your individual interests, speed up your searches and recognize you when you return to the Site.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
We use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending email. In connection with these business operations, such third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with our business activities. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and Site visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or any dissolution.
HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
How Do We Secure Information Transmissions?
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private, personal, or confidential information to us by email.
How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?
You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain in our database by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may disclose your personal information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by law, governmental order or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law or comply with legal process served on us or Affiliated Parties; (b) protect and defend our rights and property, our site, the users of our site, and/or our Affiliated Parties; (c) act under circumstances to protect the safety of users of our Site, us, our clients or third parties.
