PRIVACY POLICY

The objective of this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) is to inform you of our privacy practices. We wish to provide you with information about why and how we collect your personal information and about how it is kept and used.

BBR takes every reasonable measure to ensure the integrity and security of information obtained from users via the Website and to prevent any unauthorized access and use of this information. To this end, BBR regularly reviews its security measures.

BBR cannot, under any circumstances, be obliged to monitor the data provided through this Website or conveyed by its intermediary, as is the case for all other websites linked to or from this Website. Under no circumstances shall BBR have any obligation, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from such data or transmission, which in no way constitutes a commitment or confidentiality agreement, express or implied, between a user and BBR.

DATA COLLECTED BY AUTOMATIC MEANS

Several tools can be used on our Website to make it more efficient and user friendly, as well as for marketing and statistical purposes. These tools may include an automatic data collection by ourselves or by third parties on our behalf. In general, this data does not contain personal details about the user. These tools include, without limitation, cookies, web beacons, tracking URLs or similar tools, and web analytics.

The collected data may include, without limitation:

  • The visitor’s IP address
  • The date and time of the visit
  • The referral URL (the website from which the visitor came)
  • The pages visited on our Website
  • Information on the browser used (type and browser version, operating system, etc.)

The cookies that we commonly use are session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser. You can manage your browser preferences directly in your web browser at any time. By default, browsers allow the use of cookies, but this feature can also be disabled. It is also possible to manually delete cookies after use, using your web browser.

Web beacons, tracking URLs or similar tools, and cookies are primarily used for statistical analysis. These tools can also be used to monitor traffic patterns on websites, or to find out if an email has been received and opened, and if a reply was sent.

Web analytics is a method of collecting data and evaluating the behaviour of visitors to websites or mobile applications. It includes the analysis of traffic patterns to determine, for example, how often certain parts of a website or (mobile) application are visited, or to find out which information and services most interest our visitors. To do this, we mostly use clickstream data and other techniques described above. The web analytics used on our Website and our mobile applications are managed by Google Analytics or other service providers.

This means that when you visit our Website, a Google Analytics cookie is stored on your computer or mobile device, except if the settings of your browser do not allow such cookies, as mentioned above. Furthermore, when you visit our Website, the web analytics described above—including clickstream data, data provided by web beacons and tracking URLs, and the information stored in Google Analytics cookies—will be sent to Google Analytics to be analyzed for BBR.

Google Analytics acts as BBR’s agent, which means that BBR determines only the purposes for which the data is used, and that Google Analytics cannot disclose this information to third parties (except in cases where the law or a court order forces such disclosure). With regards to privacy, this means that BBR is the “guarantor” and Google Analytics is the “data processor”.

If you do not want such information about your visits to our Website to be collected and analyzed by Google Analytics, you can opt out. This means that Google Analytics will make anonymous the information it collects (but will continue to collect it), or will stop collecting information about your visit, depending on the type of opt-out you have chosen. To opt out, you have to accept that a cookie be stored on your computer by Google Analytics. You can request to opt out by clicking on the link provided for this purpose in the part of the website that contains the Google Analytics privacy policy (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout).

DATA USE AND STORAGE

The data collected on our Website and any other information otherwise submitted to BBR can be used to improve the content of our Website, for the purposes of marketing research and statistics, or to improve our services or provide you with information that may be of interest.

We use this data solely for the purposes for which it was collected. Your consent is required to use your personal information for marketing purposes other than those stated above. You can refuse the use of any of your data, or ask for it to be deleted or modified.

BBR stores the data for a reasonable amount of time, either to achieve set objectives or be in accordance with the law, after which time the data is destroyed or made anonymous.
