Privacy & Security of Your Information
At BUH, we are dedicated to ensuring your confidentiality by protecting the personal, business and financial information entrusted to us. That commitment is fundamental to the way we do business and is reflected in our privacy policies. Our business has been built on trust between our customers and ourselves. To preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us, we maintain the following privacy principles.
What Type of Information We Collect?
We collect two basic types of information through the Services – personal information and anonymous information. We also collect location information, to enhance your secure experience on UConnect. Information that we gather through aggregated tracking and information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to user’s needs and to better understand the demographics of our audience. Compiling such aggregated demographic data is essential to keeping our service up to date for our users. We shall not disclose any information collected from any user unless such disclosure is permitted by law. Other Information that we may collect automatically are browser, device information or IP addresses.
Use of Information
We use information provided by users to enhance their experience on our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users. When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users prefer based on traffic to those areas, we do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search functions as one of many measures of what interests our users but we do not track which terms a particular user enters.
Sharing of the Information
We use the information provided by users to tailor our content to suit your needs. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except with the consent of the specific user or in circumstances where we are legally permitted or required to provide information.
We operate secure data networks which comply with the industry standards for information systems security. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by users. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we cannot guarantee that the information you share will be secure during transmission to our web-server.
Updating your information
It is very important that you keep the information associated with your account accurate and up-to-date. If you believe that your account information is incomplete, inaccurate or otherwise not current, please contact us and provide us with the appropriate information. Alternatively, you may call or write to us at the telephone numbers or appropriate address for changes listed on your account statements, records, online or other account materials. If you would like to review, correct, update, suppress or delete personal information that you have previously provided to us, you may contact us.
Please make clear what personal information you would like to have changed, whether you would like to have it suppressed from our database or otherwise let us know what limitations you would like to put on our use of the personal information you have provided to us. For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the personal information associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.
Please note that we may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting a change or deletion. There may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed.
Retention and Destruction of Information
We will only retain your personal information as long as it is necessary or as required by law. When we destroy the information, we will use safeguards to prevent unauthorized parties from gaining access to the information during the process.
We have taken reasonable steps to ensure the security of personal information transmitted over the Internet. However, complete confidentiality and security over this medium are not yet possible, and there exists a remote possibility of data security violations occurring. In the event of such a violation, we do not accept any liability for direct, indirect, special or consequential damage arising out of the use of the site or release of confidential information, except where such damage is proven to be caused by negligence on our part.
