PRIVACY POLICY

Last modified: June 2, 2016

 

This Privacy Policy applies to all Bikes, Blues and BBQ websites and services. It is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it. Read this policy carefully.

We’ve tried to keep our Privacy Policy as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, SSL, and browsers, then learn about these key terms first. If you have any questions, contact us (info@bikesbluesandbbq.org).

There are a number of ways you can use our website: to search for and share information; to opt-in to our mailing lists, to make donations, and to register or apply for programs and services.

Information we collect

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from learning basic stuff like what information and advertisements interest you most.

We collect information in the following ways:

Information you give us. Some of our services may require you to sign up for an account (like our e-newsletter). When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number and mailing address.

Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you watch a video on our website, visit a website that uses our advertisements, or view and interact with our ads and content. This information includes:

  • Device information. We collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number).
  • Log information. When you use our services or view content provided by Bikes, Blues and BBQ, we automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This includes details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.
  • IP address. This includes device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
  • This information may uniquely identify your browser or your account.
  • Location information. When you use Bikes, Blues and BBQ services, we may collect and process information about your actual location using your IP address.

Local storage

We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage and application data caches.

Cookies and similar technologies

We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a Bikes, Blues and BBQ service, and this may include using cookies or similar technologies to identify your browser or device. We also use these technologies to collect and store information when you interact with our advertisements or content that may appear on other sites.

We use Google Analytics to analyze the traffic to our websites and social media channels. When used in conjunction with other advertising services, this information can be linked with information about your visits to multiple sites.

Google AdWords/Doubleclick

Bikes, Blues and BBQ uses Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick services. In addition to complying with the terms above, we comply with Google’s policy requirements.

These services allow us to reach people who previously visited our websites. The features of Google’s services are similarly used to reach people who are likely to have an interest in Bikes, Blues and BBQ advertising based on their personal Internet activity. Google and its vendors display Bikes, Blues and BBQ ads across the internet to IP addresses that have visited our websites.

Google’s DoubleClick service uses Bikes, Blues and BBQ ads to collect analytical data for planning purposes. The service does not collect personally identifiable information.

Google and its vendors use cookies to serve ads based on past visits to Bikes, Blues and BBQ websites. You can opt out of Google’s use of cookies in three ways:

  • Changing your preferences in Google’s Ads Settings,
  • Opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page, and
  • Opt out of only DoubleClick’s use of cookies, by visiting the DoubleClick opt-out page

Bikes, Blues and BBQ does not use or associate personally identifiable information with marketing lists, cookies, data feeds, or other anonymous identifiers. Furthermore, we do not use or associate targeting information, such as demographics or location, with any personally identifiable information collected from ads or the landing pages of such ads. Bikes, Blues and BBQ does not share any personally identifiable information with Google through its remarketing tags or any product data feeds which might be associated with its ads, nor does it send Google precise location information without obtaining your consent.

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Bikes, Blues and BBQ and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant information.

When you contact Bikes, Blues and BBQ, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.

We use information collected from cookies and other technologies to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. One of the products we use to do this on our own services is Google Analytics.

We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

Transparency and choice

People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can opt out of certain mailing lists. (info@bikesbluesandbbq.org)

You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that some of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

Information you share

Some of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it can often be indexed by search engines.

Accessing and updating your personal information

Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.

We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).

Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

Information we share

We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Bikes, Blues and BBQ unless one of the following circumstances applies:

  • With your consent. We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Bikes, Blues and BBQ when we have your consent to do so. We require your consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
  • For external processing. We provide personal information to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  • For legal reasons. We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Bikes, Blues and BBQ if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
    • meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request,
    • enforce applicable policies, including investigation of potential violations,
    • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues,
    • protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Bikes, Blues and BBQ, our users or the public as required or permitted by law

We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.

If Bikes, Blues and BBQ is involved in a merger, acquisition or transfer of assets, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Information security

We work hard to protect Bikes, Blues and BBQ and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:

  • We encrypt some of our services using SSL.
  • We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
  • We restrict access to personal information to Bikes, Blues and BBQ employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

When this Privacy Policy applies

Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by Bikes, Blues and BBQ and its affiliates, but excludes services that have separate privacy policies that do not incorporate this Privacy Policy.

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may be linked from our services. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services, and who may use cookies and other technologies to serve and offer relevant information.

Compliance and cooperation with regulatory authorities

We regularly review our compliance with our Privacy Policy. When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.

Changes

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes).
