PROTECTING THE PRIVACY OF YOUNG CHILDREN IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT TO US. OUR SITE IS GEARED TOWARDS ADULTS. IN NO EVENT SHOULD THE SITE BE USED BY A CHILD. BAM DOES NOT KNOWINGLY COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13 NOR DOES BAM SHARE SUCH INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES. CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MAY USE THE SITE ONLY WITH THE INVOLVEMENT OF A PARENT OR GUARDIAN. IF WE BECOME AWARE THAT WE HAVE COLLECTED PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM A CHILD UNDER AGE 13 WITHOUT VERIFICATION OF PARENTAL CONSENT, BAM WILL TAKE STEPS TO REMOVE THAT INFORMATION.
Although such information is not personally identifiable, it may be possible to determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data. Your IP address and other non-personally identifiable information also may be used to gather broad demographic information and to recognize customer traffic patterns and Site usage trends. This information helps us in merchandising and in developing the design and layout of the Site.
We also may share aggregated statistical data and other non-personally identifiable information with our current and potential business partners, advertisers, sponsors and with our service providers. BAM will not, intentionally, disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that could identify you personally.
BAM won’t share your personal information with other companies, nor will we rent, sell or exchange your email address and information unless otherwise provided:
We work with third parties who provide services, including but not limited to website hosting, e-commerce affiliation, data analysis, emailing and other services of an administrative nature. Personally identifiable information is shared with such third parties for the purpose of providing such services.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated infromation (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
