Personally-Identifying Information. Personally-Identifying Information (“PII”) means information such as Your first name, middle initial or name, last name, e-mail address, street address, mailing address if different, town or city, state, zip code, telephone number, date of birth, credit card information, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, school, organization, and any other information that would allow someone to identify You or contact You. BSCS does not use such PII to identify its Users and does not disclose such PII, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses PII, as described below.
PLEASE NOTE: BSCS does not monitor, edit or control public posts by You or any User while using the Website or any App. Any PII You put in a public post will be publicly visible and accessible. Projects can customize their own data collection which may include PII. BSCS advises You to be aware of these possibilities and to be cautious of information, including PII, that You include in a public post or provide to a Project.
By establishing an account with BSCS, You understand and agree that must provide Us with Your email address and that We may use Your email address as needed to provide Your account to You. As part of Our providing Your account to You, You understand and agree that We can provide Your email address to the person or persons designated as a “Project Manager” for any Project in which You request to participate.
BSCS may collect PII when You choose to interact with BSCS in ways that require BSCS to gather such information, such as if You register as a Website user, or provide content to the Website through Your computer or smart device. The amount and type of information that BSCS gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, BSCS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of Your interaction with the Website. BSCS does not disclose PII other than as described below. And You can always refuse to supply PII, with the caveat that doing so may prevent You from engaging in certain Website and App-related activities.
BSCS discloses potential or actual PII only to those of its programmers, contractors, and affiliated organizations that: (i) need to know that PII in order to process it on BSCS’s behalf or to provide services available at the Website and Apps; and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of Your home country and, therefore, by using BSCS’s Website or Apps, You consent to the transfer of such PII to them. BSCS will not rent or sell potential or actual PII to anyone.
Other than to Our employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described herein, BSCS discloses potential and actual PII only when required to do so by law, or when BSCS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of BSCS, third parties, or the public at large. Unless authorized by You through Your opt-in, or as provided herein, We will make Your PII available to non-affiliated third parties only in the following circumstances:
If You are a registered User of the Website and have supplied Your email address, then BSCS, or a Project Manager for any Project in which You have opted to participate, may occasionally send You an email to tell You about new features, solicit Your feedback, or just keep You up to date with what’s going on with the Website, BSCS and Our products. We primarily use blogs and groups to communicate this type of information, so We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If You send Us a request (for example, by a support email or by one of Our feedback mechanisms), then We reserve the right to publish it in order to help Us clarify or respond to Your request or to help Us support other users. BSCS takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potential or actual PII.
