Protecting both the privacy of our members, and you the visitor,
is important to the BMW Club of Canada ("BMW CC").
We hope the following statements will help you understand how
the BMW Club of Canada may collect, use, and safeguard the personal
information you may provide while visiting our web site.
If you browse BMW CC's web site, you do so relatively anonymously.
We don't collect personal information including your e-mail address
des log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer)
to give us an idea of which parts of our web site you visit and
how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address
to anything personally identifiable. The only other information
automatically provided to us is the type of computer and operating
system you are using. Your browser supplies us with this information.
Unlike many commercial web sites, the BMW CC web site does not
use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect
information about how you use the site.
If you provide us with your e-mail or postal address, or have
done so in the past, we will ask you if we can use it to send
you updates on the latest BMW CC events activities and promotions.
When you supply BMW CC with your personal information, (such
as for membership applications etc.), we may use the information
that you have given us to learn more about our members so that
we can develop better activities and services. We may also use
the information to inform you about new events, activities, services
and offers that may be of interest to you. These offers may be
based on information you provided in your initial transaction
with us or in surveys. But then you proably won't mind because
it is membership related.
Declining E-mail Offers
BMW CC provides members with the option to decline to receive
e-mail offers. Although most members tell us they appreciate
receiving notices regarding our club, we recognize the importance
of providing you with choices. At any time, you may request to
discontinue receiving these offers from us by simply replying
to the e-mail and informing us of your preferences.
While we have no control over the fact that the BMW CC's website
and marketing materials are often viewed by children, we do not
solicit data from them. BMW CC encourages parents and guardians
to spend time online with their children and to participate in
the interactive activities offered on the sites their children
visit. No information should be submitted to, or posted at, BMW
CC's web site by visitors under 18 years of age without the consent
of their parent or guardian. We will not be held responsible
if your child keeps asking for a BMW of their own as a result
of visting our site.
