We may amend this Policy from time to time; please review it periodically. We maintain the option to modify this Policy, and to apply the changed practices to all information we have about you, at any time by electronic notice posted on our website. Your continued use of our website after the date that such notices are posted will be deemed to be your agreement to the changed terms. This Policy is effective from July 27, 2021.
What types of information does BT collect about me from my use of this website and how does BT use the information?
We collect and use information about you to communicate with you about our programs, fundraising campaigns, and events, and to customize our communications in those areas. We also collect information to improve your website experience and enable you to make donations to BT. Here are the ways we obtain information about you and the types of information we obtain:
Register for Email Updates. When you sign up to stay connected with us, you provide us with your full name and email address so we can fulfill your request and personalize your updates.
Contact Us page. If you contact us via our website, we may ask you for information such as your name, address, phone number, and email address so we can respond to your questions or comments. Unless you consent, we do not retain this information except to respond to your inquiries.
The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies.
Donations. You also give us contact information and credit card or checking information so we can process your donation. We use this information for that purpose and to customize our communication with you, including providing updates on BT programs, fundraising campaigns, and events. BT will not share or sell a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of non-BT organizations.
You may ask us to notify a dedicatee of a gift on your behalf. We do not use any personal information you provide in connection with sending the notification except to send the notification.
Does BT share the information it obtains about me with third parties?
We do not trade, share, or sell information that you provide to us with other organizations who intend to use it only to market their products or services to you.
There may be instances in which we share your information with others. We may share your information, for example, in conjunction with your sponsorship of a certain project, as required by law, with law enforcement, to comply with legal process, to protect our legal rights, to protect the safety or security of a person, or to protect against fraud, criminal acts, or misconduct. We may also share your information with companies that provide us with services, or with a successor legal entity.
How does BT protect personal information?
The security of personal information is a high priority for us. We maintain online and offline safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration and destruction of the personal information in our possession. To protect the security of your credit card information, we use the industry standard for Internet security—Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This Internet encryption standard scrambles data as it travels from your computer to our server. You’ll know that you’re in a secure area of our website when the “http” portion of the BT website address in your browser changes to “https.” The “s” stands for “secure.” When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, many of those companies also use encryption and/or other security measures.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, donations) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
