BOMI International, Inc. (“we” or “us”) is concerned about the privacy of the users of our web site and the confidentiality of the information shared with us. The intent of this privacy statement is to disclose the privacy practices of the bomi.org web site (the “Site”). We are committed to providing you with notice and choice about the use and any onward transfer of your information, as well as access to your information. Security, data integrity, and the enforcement of this privacy statement are also very important to us. We will not use or share your personal information obtained through the Site in ways incompatible with this privacy statement.

What information does the Site collect?

We may ask you for certain information, including, for example, your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, fax number, and payment information (e.g., credit card number and billing address) to respond to your request for information or your request to be contacted by us. We may also use the information to contact you for feedback on our products and services, to notify you about updates to the Site, or to contact you for marketing purposes. For example, you may receive periodic mailings and/or telephone calls from us with information on new products and services or upcoming events. If you do not wish to receive such mailings or calls, please let us know by sending an e-mail to the address below.

Like many web sites, the Site also may collect information about visitors and the manner in which visitors utilize and navigate the Site. For example, the Site may track the pages you visit on the Site, the URL that you visited before you came to the Site, the URL to which you next go, and your IP address. This information helps us to design and improve the Site to better suit our visitors’ needs. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the Site. Your IP address also may be used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information.

Does the Site use cookies?

Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to a user’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes while visiting a site. Like most web sites, we may use cookies on certain pages of the Site. Cookies make using the Internet easier by, among other things, saving your passwords and preferences for you. We may also use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and for web traffic analysis and site navigation. You are free to not accept the cookies by referring to your browser’s “help” feature, but certain features of the Site may not work as intended or may be slowed if you decline to accept cookies.

To whom do we disclose information?

The information that we collect is generally used for internal purposes such as fulfilling your requests for products or information, customer support/responding to your inquiries, compiling usage statistics regarding the Site, and analyzing visitor preferences regarding our products and services. We may share the information collected on the Site with outside parties to the extent necessary to fulfill your requests for information or to provide our products and services to you. In addition, we may share your information with outside parties with whom we have a business relationship or outside parties that may offer you products or services that we believe may interest you. We strive to ensure that any such parties will provide at least the same level of protection as this privacy statement offers. However, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of third parties and do not guarantee that these third parties have similar privacy practices. If you prefer that we not share information about you with the third parties for direct marketing purposes, please let us know by sending an e-mail to the address below or by calling us at the number provided below.

We will divulge personal information to law enforcement agencies or other governmental agencies when required to do so or when we in good faith believe it is necessary in order to comply with legal obligations. We will, however, ask all governmental officials to provide us with acceptable reasons that we believe, in our sole discretion, support disclosure of personal information. We may monitor e-mail correspondence and telephone calls to track reported problems and to ensure quality assurance. Similarly, we monitor web traffic in the aggregate for the purposes of evaluating marketing campaigns and content improvement.

In addition, in the event that this Site or substantially all of our assets are acquired or reorganized, user information will of course be one of the transferred assets; provided that the transferee agrees to comply with the provisions of this privacy statement. We are the sole owner of any and all information collected through the use of the Site.

What security measures does the Site employ?

The Site may have security measures in place that are intended to protect against the loss of information that the Site collects.
