Our goal in handling personal information provided to us is to comply with applicable data protection and privacy laws and to offer users of our website notice, choice and consent regarding processing for security, data integrity, access, and enforcement with regard to personal information. This Privacy Statement may be supplemented or amended from time to time. We may occasionally update this Privacy Statement.

HOW DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION & COOKIES
Collection of Information
We collect a minimum of information from our website. As such, we collect through “cookies” and an online inquiry form. When you visit our website, an “Accept Cookies” pop-up will occur. You may allow or not allow it.
Cookies. When you visit this website, your computer may receive one or more "cookies" in order to help personalize and support your use of this website, our services, and/or the services of our partners. A "cookie" is a small text file that is transferred to your computer's web browser by a web server, and can be read by a web server in the same domain at a later time. If you do not wish to receive cookies or wish to manage when you accept cookies in general, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You are not required to accept our cookies. However, to make this easier for you to choose, we’ve added an “Accept or Reject Cookies” script to our website.
Session Cookies. A "session cookie" is a temporary cookie that expires when you close your browser. A session cookie assigns a randomly-generated, unique identification number to your computer when you access this website. We analyze this information to better understand our visitors' interests and needs and to improve the content and functionality of this website.
Persistent Cookies. Unlike a session cookie, a "persistent cookie" does not expire when you close your browser. It stays on your computer until the expiration date set in the cookie (for example, at the end of a calendar month) or until you delete it. Persistent cookies can be used to "tag" your computer so that the next time you visit (or someone using your computer visits), our server will recognize you, not by name, but by the "tag" on your computer. This will enable us to provide you with a personalized experience even if we do not know who you are. It will also allow us to collect more accurate information about the ways people use this website, for example, how people use this website on their first visit and how often they return. Using persistent cookies permits us to provide you with a more personalized shopping experience and, in some cases, may save you the trouble of re-entering information already in our database. It will allow us to coordinate your reservation inquiry or reservation with your “persistent cookie”.
We’ve included an online form for your ease of inquiry. The required data in this form includes your name, email address, date, company name, your question, and reCAPTCHA field. You may also include your phone number and address, but those are not required.
We do NOT share the information in this form with ANY third party. The entire purpose of the form is to help you, the reader, ask us a question. ONLY restricted BMI personnel have access to the content of your inquiry and personal information.
Your form information is stored within an SSL enabled website until you request us to delete your information.
Storage, Use and Sharing of Website-Obtained Information
Our Use of Anonymous Information. We may use anonymous information collected by us:
- to personalize and support your use of this website, our services
- for other historical, statistical or research and analysis purposes.
In addition, we "de-identify" personal information by removing any information that identifies you specifically, and use the rest for the purposes set forth above.
To Comply With Legal Requirements, Cooperate With Law Enforcement, Prevent Fraud and Other Crimes, and Protect Legal Rights, Property, You and Others. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may disclose the personal information we collect on this website without notifying you when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law or a regulatory requirement; to comply with governmental, administrative or judicial process, requirement or order, such as a subpoena or court order; to cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental investigations (without necessarily requiring the law enforcement or government agency requesting the information to formally serve us with a subpoena); to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to enforce a contract; to protect the legal rights, property or safety of CCNow, its corporate affiliates, and their respective employees, clients and partners and agents, other users or the public in general; or to protect your vital interests if determined necessary by us. In addition, we may review our server logs for security purposes, such as detecting intrusions into our network. If we suspect criminal activity, we may share our server logs - which contain visitors' IP addresses - with the appropriate investigative authorities who may use that information to trace and identify individuals. We also reserve the right to report to appropriate law enforcement or government agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe are or may be in violation of applicable laws, rules or regulations without providing notice to you.
Security of Website Information
We are committed to keeping personal information secure. We have implemented physical, technical and administrative safeguards reasonably designed to protect your cookie information from unauthorized access and disclosure. We use industry standard methods to protect that information. It is important that you understand, however, that no website, database or system is completely secure or "hacker proof." You are also responsible for taking reasonable steps to protect your personal information against unauthorized disclosure or misuse.
This website is not directed at nor targeted to children. If you have not reached the age of majority or are not able to enter into legally binding agreements in your country, you may not use this website unless supervised by an adult.
