You may object to profiling via automated-decision making by contacting us using the information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
You do not have to share your PI with us, but if you choose not to share your PI, we may not be able to provide you with certain information, products or services.
Through this website, Burel may:
• Collect your Name and Personal Contact Information if you opt in to receive communications (such as requests for information, responses to inquiries, etc.). Burel may also use this information to verify your relationship with Burel and take other actions in order to respond to your request.
• Collect online identifiers that correspond to your device(s) that do not directly identify you in order to improve, manage and secure our websites, network systems and other assets; verify your relationship with us; understand your interests and preferences; and take other actions that may be necessary to respond to your request.
• Analyze your website usage including the date and time of your website session, geographic location, how you have navigated the website, and other information collected through our web beacons, cookies, third-party and digital advertising, Google Analytics®; and social media plug-ins. This information is collected for our legitimate business purposes.
Web beacons: A web beacon (also known as an “action tag” or “clear GIF technology”) is a tiny graphic on a web page or in an email message designed to track pages viewed or messages opened, and allows the collection of web log information. Web log information is gathered by the computer that hosts our website (called a “web server”) when you visit one of our websites. We may use web beacons to help determine which email messages sent by us were opened and whether a message was acted upon. Web beacons also help Burel analyze the effectiveness of websites by measuring the number of visitors to a site or how many visitors clicked on key elements of a site.
• Do Not Track: There are different ways you can prevent tracking of your online activity. One of them is setting a preference in your browser that alerts websites you visit that you do not want them to collect certain information about you. This is referred to as a Do Not Track (“DNT”) signal. Please note that currently our websites and web-based resources do not respond to these signals from web browsers. At this time, there is no universally accepted standard for what a company should do when a DNT signal is detected.
Third-Party and Digital Advertising: We may partner with third-party advertising networks to manage our advertising on other sites. Our ad network partners may place cookies and web beacons and similar digital markers on your browser when you visit our websites to collect information about your activities over time on this and third-party websites, apps and other online services, to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. We may also share PI about you with third parties in order to have those third parties, on our behalf, directly serve advertising to you on their websites.
• Opt-Out Provision: Google Analytics offers an opt-out provision for website visitors who do not want their data to be collected. You can receive more information about this option here.
Social Media Plug-ins: Our websites may use social media plug-ins to enable you to share information with others easily. When you visit our websites, the operator of the social media plug-in that is on our website can place a cookie on your computer that lets that operator recognize individuals on their website who have previously visited our sites. Social media plug-ins may allow social media websites to receive directly identifiable information about you that shows you have visited our website. The social media plug-in may collect this information for visitors, whether or not they specifically interact with the plug-in on our website. Social media plug-ins also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on our website with other users of their social media website. Burel does not control any of the content from social media plug-ins. For more information about social plug-ins from social media websites, you should refer to those sites’ privacy and data-sharing statements.
This website is not intended for or designed for individuals under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect PI from any person under the age of 18.
Reasons We Share PI
We may share your PI with third parties in connection with work that they do for or with Burel, for purposes consistent with those listed above. These third parties must agree to protect the PI and to use it only as directed by Burel.
We may also be required to disclose your information in response to lawful information requests for PI by law enforcement authorities, the courts or regulatory authorities, including complying with national security or law enforcement requests.
In the event that Burel may decide to reorganize or divest part or all of its business, including its information databases, through a sale, divestiture, merger, acquisition or other means of transfer, then PI may be shared with, sold, transferred, rented, licensed or otherwise provided or made available by Burel to third parties in connection with the contemplated transaction (without your consent or any further notice to you). In such circumstances, Burel will seek written assurances that the PI will be protected appropriately.
Where We Transfer and Work With PI
This website is owned and operated by Burel in the United States. As explained in the “Reasons We Share PI” section above, PI may be shared as appropriate with third parties that process information on behalf of Burel. If we disclose PI, Burel ensures that the third party has contractual provisions that require the same level of security and confidentiality safeguards as required under applicable law and consistent with Burel’s internal privacy policies.
How Long We Keep PI
PI will be saved for a period of time needed to fulfill legitimate and lawful business purposes in accordance with our record-retention policies and applicable laws and regulations.
How We Secure PI
We provide reasonable physical, technical and procedural safeguards to protect PI we work with and maintain. We limit access to PI to authorized employees and third parties who need access to carry out their assigned roles and responsibilities on behalf of Burel. Although we strive to protect the PI we work with and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
Your Rights and Choices
Upon verification of your identity and as applicable by law, you have the right to request information from us on how your PI is being used and with whom it is being shared. You also have the right and choice to request to see and receive a copy of the PI that we have about you, request that we correct, restrict the processing of, and/or erase/delete your PI. For more details about the personal information we collect, including the categories of sources, and the business and commercial purposes for which we collect it, please see the “PI We Collect and How We Use It” section above.
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act or “CCPA,” California residents have the right to request to know more details about the categories or specific pieces of PI we collect, to delete their PI, to opt out of any “sales” that may be occurring, and to not be discriminated against for exercising these rights. Other states may provide similar rights to residents of that state.
To exercise your rights, you or your authorized representative may submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting us using one of the methods listed under the “How to Contact Us” section. There may be requirements as to the information you need to provide with your request and exceptions that apply to your request.
