  1. Cookies

BCL may use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your device for record-keeping purposes. The Service may send cookies to a computer or a mobile device when a user accesses or views the Service. Information contained in a cookie may be linked to personal information for purposes such as improving the quality of BCL’s service, tailoring recommendations, and making the Service easier to use. Third party advertisers on the Service may also place or read cookies on your browser. Cookies can be disabled at any time by changing your web browser’s options to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions or functionalities of the Service.

  1. Links

The Service may contain links to other websites or applications. The fact that the Service links to a website or application or presents a banner ad or other type of advertisement does not mean that BCL endorses or authorizes that third party, nor is it a representation of any affiliation with that third party. If you click on a link to a third party site or application, including on an advertisement, you will leave the BCL site you are visiting or application you are running and will go to that linked site or application. Such third party websites and applications may place their own cookies or other files on your computer or mobile device, and may collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites and applications may follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. Because BCL cannot control the activities of third parties, it cannot and does not accept responsibility for any use of your personal information by such third parties, and it cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy and security practices as BCL. You are encouraged to read the privacy policies or statements of other websites and applications you visit before providing any personal information.
