We may from time to time also ask you for other optional information such as what sort of device you use such as a mobile telephone, tablets or mobile devices, how you heard about our website and what sort of topics interest you. If you choose to give us this information, we will use it to help us to provide you with the best possible service that is personalised to your needs and preferences. Although we do not make it compulsory to give us every item of information we ask for, the more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we can tailor our services for you.
Certain British Breeders Network services (such as web hosting) are offered in conjunction with our service providers. In such cases, we may need to share your personal information with them for the sole purpose of enabling them to provide these services. Please note that certain services may be unavailable if you do not want to disclose the personal information you are asked for.
When you visit our Site, we automatically log your IP address (the unique address which identifies your computer on the internet) which is automatically recognised by our web server. We use IP addresses to help us administer the Site and to collect broad demographic information for aggregate use. We do not link IP addresses to personally identifiable information.
We may automatically collect non-personal information about you such as the type of internet browsers you use or the site from which you linked to our Site. You cannot be identified from this information and it is only used to assist us in providing an effective service on our Site. We may from time to time supply the owners or operators of third party sites from which it is possible to link to our website with information relating to the number of users linking to our website from their sites. You cannot be identified from this information.
Please note that cookies can’t harm your computer. Your personal information is not at risk. We don’t store personally identifiable information such as credit card details in cookies we create, but we do use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience of the site. For example, they help us to identify and resolve errors, or to determine relevant related products to show you when you’re browsing. We’re giving you this information to facilitate your use of our site and as part of our initiative to comply with recent legislation, and to make sure we’re honest and clear about your privacy when using our website. We are working on a number of other privacy and cookie-related improvements to the website.
It is very important to us that we provide you with the highest level of service. In order to help us do this, from time to time we may contact you using one of the contact methods you have provided, with details of our newsletters, surveys, products and services which we think may be of interest to you. If at any time you do not wish to receive these details, or if you wish to opt-out of all British Breeders Network mailing list communications, then send a blank e-mail message to http://britishbreedersnetwork.us10.list-manage.com/unsubscribe. Please note that active members will continue to receive order and account communications from us.
You should be aware that the internet is an insecure environment. We have implemented technology to help safeguard your privacy from unauthorised access and improper use. For example secure server software (“SSL”) is used to encrypt and therefore protect any financial information you need to input before it is sent to us. Where SSL is enabled you will see a padlock, either at the top of your browser address bar or at the bottom of your browser and you can click on this to find out more information. We will continue to update these measures, as appropriate, when new technology becomes available.
We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other third party sites even if you access them using links from our website and recommend that you check the policy of each website you visit. In addition, if you linked to our website from a third party website, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners or operators of that third party website and recommend that you check the policy of that third party website and contact its owner or operator if you have any concerns or questions.
Other than the disclosures referred to in this policy, we will not disclose any personal information without your permission unless we are legally entitled or obliged to do so (for example, if required to do so by Court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime). We will only disclose your personal information to a third party either as part of a reorganisation or a sale of the assets of a British Breeders Network Group company, or having ensured that steps have first been taken to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
If at any time you would like to contact us with your views about our privacy practices, or with any enquiry relating to your personal information, you can do so by sending an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are entitled to ask for a copy of the information we store about you and can ask for that information to be corrected or erased where appropriate.
