Online Privacy Statement BME Respects Your Privacy

BME and its subsidiaries respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it. BME provides this Privacy Statement to inform you of our Privacy Policy and practices and of the choices you can make about the way your information is collected online and how that information is used. We've structured our websites so that, in general, you can visit BME on the Web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. We make this notice readily available on our home page and at the bottom of every BME Web page. Some BME Web pages are P3P-enabled, which allows you additional control over your personal information.

1. Sites covered by this Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement applies to all websites and domains, and our wholly or partially owned subsidiaries ("BME websites.").

Links to non-BME websites

The BME websites may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. If you access those links, you will leave the BME website. BME does not control those sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from BME's. We do not endorse or make any representations about third-party websites. The personal data you choose to give to unrelated third parties is not covered by the BME Privacy Statement. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any company before submitting your personal information.

2. Types of information we collect

This Privacy Statement covers personal information, non-personal data collection and aggregate reporting.

Personal information is information that is associated with your name or personal identity. BME uses personal information to understand better your needs and interests and to provide you with better service. Once you choose to provide us with personal information, you can be assured it will be used only to support your customer relationship with BME. We take seriously the trust you place in us. BME will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. On some BME websites, subscribe to marketing or support materials, register yourself or your BME products, services, or apply for a job at BME. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, user IDs and passwords, contact preferences, educational and employment background, and job interest data.

This information will be used by our financial services providers in determining whether to extend you credit.

To personalize our websites, services or communications and improve our products and services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, and experiences with our products or services.

Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not associated with a specific personal identity. BME collects and analyzes non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use the BME websites.

Non-personal data we collect may include the pages visited on the BME websites, unique URLs visited within, browser type and IP address. Most non-personal data is collected via cookies or other analysis technologies. Web pages use cookies, Web beacons and other technologies for data analysis and personalization services. BME also places ads on other websites that may use cookies.

3. Children's privacy

BME is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children's online activities and interests. BME does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 and BME does not target its websites to children under 13.

4. How we use your information

BME uses your personal information to provide you with services and to help us better understand your needs and interests. Specifically, we use your information to communicate with you, to provide service and support, to update you on services and benefits, to personalize promotional offers and to personalize some BME websites. Occasionally we may also use your information to contact you for market research regarding BME products or services. We will give you the opportunity to choose your privacy preferences regarding such communications.

Personal data collected online may also be combined with information you provide BME through other sources such as product registration, call centers or public events such as trade shows or seminars.

Personal data given to BME may be transferred across country borders for the purposes of data consolidation, storage and simplified customer information management.

Non-personal data is aggregated for reporting about BME website usability, performance and effectiveness. It is used to improve the customer experience, usability and site content.

5. Who we share your information with

BME will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. BME will not share your personal information with third parties except in responding to your requests for products or services. Your permission will be requested when you submit your information. BME shares customer information across BME-owned business entities and companies working on our behalf, but only as described above in "How we use your information."

BME contracts with third-party service providers and suppliers to deliver complete products, services and customer solutions described in "How we use your information." Suppliers and service providers are required to keep confidential the information received on behalf of BME and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for BME. These service providers may change or we may contract with additional service providers to better accommodate our customers. BME will not share personal information with any other third parties without your permission, unless required by law enforcement action, subpoena, or local law.

BME or its related entities could merge with or be acquired by another business entity or some or all of their respective assets could be acquired. If such a combination or acquisition occurs, BME will make every reasonable effort to notify you in the event we share with the merging or acquiring entity some or all of your personal information to continue serving you.

6. Your choices

BME gives you the choice of receiving a variety of information that complements our products and services. You can subscribe to receive certain product- and service-specific information and BME-wide marketing communications. BME-wide communications may include new product information, special offers, or an invitation to participate in market research. We will make every effort to honor your preferences.

7. Your privacy preferences and opting out

Non-subscription services

BME will not use your personal information for a different purpose than the one stated when you provided your data.

Subscription services

To opt-out of receiving communications you have expressly requested (such as e-mail newsletters, mobile phone SMS services etc.), use any of the following methods:

Please utilize the method described in the subscription confirmation message sent to you by the relevant service or if you do not have this message please visit the relevant site you have made the subscription through and follow specific instructions to cancel your subscription properly.

8. Your information and third-party companies

Certain BME services are linked with those from unrelated third-party companies, some which offer you the option to share with both BME and the third party personal data you provide. We will not share your personal information with those third-party companies unless you make that choice.

9. Access to and accuracy of your information

BME strives to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to maintain customer data accuracy. We will provide you with access to your information, including making reasonable effort to provide you with online access and the opportunity to change your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. Certain areas of BME's websites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and other personal identifiers.

The most effective way to view and change your personal information is to return to the Web page where you originally submitted your data and follow the instructions on that Web page.

10. Keeping your information secure

BME is committed to protecting the information you provide us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, BME has in place appropriate physical and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
