THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
HOW WE USE VOLUNTARY E-MAIL INFORMATION
From time to time, we may request personal information from you in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver information about BHC in the news. Scattered throughout the BHC Site are mail-to links or forms that can be used to contact BHC. BHC may put information from e-mail on file, but does not currently share, sell, license or transmit this information with third parties unless required to do so by legal, judicial or governmental proceedings, unless we do so in accordance with an express authorization you have given us, or unless we need to block harassing or otherwise illegal e-mail as noted within our Site. If you e-mail us, your e-mail information will not be used outside of this system without your permission.
DISCLOSURE OF CUSTOMER INFORMATION THROUGH BUSINESS TRANSFERS
Since we do not collect personal information on this Site without your consent, we do not currently share personal information with outside parties. BHC does not contract with any advertising or marketing agencies to gather individual or group profile information on our visitors.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CHILDREN'S PRIVACY
Protecting the privacy of the very young is important to us. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA") defines a "Child" as anyone under the age of 13. BHC strictly adheres to COPPA. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information at our Web sites from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Web site is structured to attract anyone under 13.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
This Site contains links to other Web sites for your convenience. BHC is not responsible for the privacy practices of those Web sites. We are also not responsible for the nature, quality or accuracy of the content or opinions expressed in such Web sites. Inclusion of any linked Web site on the BHC Site does not imply or express an approval or endorsement of the linked Web site by us, or any of the content, opinions, products or services provided on these sites. If you decide to leave our Site and access these third-party sites, you do so at your own risk. The Site contains content supplied by parties other than BHC. Third party content providers may also ask for your email address in order to send you materials you request. Any opinions, advice, statements, services, or other information or content expressed or made available by such third parties, are those of the respective author(s) or distributor(s) and not of BHC. BHC does not endorse, warrant or guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any content and will not be a party to or in any way monitor any transaction between any visitor and the third party. Although the Site endeavors to use third party content providers and other parties that adhere to BHC's privacy policies, BHC is not responsible for any actions or policies of any third parties, either in web content or through newsletters you elect to receive.
