BC in the Cloud uses Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Customers and Visitors’ usage of the Company’s Web sites and interaction with emails from the Company. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular Web site tied to the Web beacon, and a description of a Web site tied to the Web beacon. For example, BC in the Cloud may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify the Company when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of the Company’s Web sites. BC in the Cloud uses Web beacons to operate and improve the Company’s Web sites and email communications.
When you visit BC in the Cloud’s Web sites, the Company collects your Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses to track and aggregate non-personal information. For example, BC in the Cloud uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Customers and Visitors navigate the Company’s Web sites.
BC in the Cloud also collects IP addresses from Customers whey they log into the Services as part of the Company’s “Identity Confirmation” and “IP Range Restrictions” security features.
5. Public forums, refer a friend, and customer testimonials
BC in the Cloud may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on the Company’s Web sites. Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. BC in the Cloud is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.
Customers and Visitors may elect to use the Company’s referral program to inform friends about the Company’s Web sites. When using the referral program, the Company requests the friend’s name and email address. BC in the Cloud will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Company’s Web sites. BC in the Cloud does not store this information.
6. Sharing of information collected
BC in the Cloud may share Data About BC in the Cloud Customers and Data About BC in the Cloud Attendees with the Company’s contracted service providers so that these service providers can provide services on our behalf. Unless described in this Privacy Statement, BC in the Cloud does not share, sell, rent, or trade any information with third parties for their promotional purposes.

10. Customer Data
BC in the Cloud Customers may electronically submit data or information to the Services for hosting and processing purposes (“Customer Data”). BC in the Cloud will not review, share, distribute, or reference any such Customer Data except as provided in the BC in the Cloud Master Subscription Agreement, or as may be required by law. In accordance with the BC in the Cloud Master Subscription Agreement, BC in the Cloud may access Customer Data only for the purpose of providing the Services, preventing or addressing service or technical problems, at a Customer’s request in connection with customer support matters, or as may be required by law.
BC in the Cloud uses robust security measures to protect Customer Data from unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and help ensure the appropriate use of Customer Data. When supported by a Visitor or Customer’s browser, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects Customer Data using both server authentication and data encryption. These technologies help ensure that Customer Data is safe, secure, and only available to the Customer to whom the information belongs and those to whom the Customer has granted access. BC in the Cloud also implements an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications, and the Company hosts its Web sites in a secure server environment that uses firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. BC in the Cloud also offers enhanced security features within the Services that permit Customers to configure security settings to the level they deem necessary. Customers are responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of their BC in the Cloud usernames and passwords.
Because the Company uses the Services to maintain Data About BC in the Cloud Customers, this information, which is stored in the Services, is secured in the same manner as described above for Customer Data.
