BBI is dedicated to protecting its members’ privacy and providing them with the highest level of service. As technology continues to transform the way information is collected and distributed, BBI wants its members and subscribers to know that BBI has implemented important procedures and practices designed to safeguard the privacy and security of personal, business or financial information.
BBI does not provide information about BBI members to other companies for their own marketing purposes. BBI may utilize aggregate information as a whole to jointly develop products and services to benefit BBI membership. However, BBI does not sell personal information about BBI members to anyone.
Children under the age of 18 are not eligible to use this BBI online service.
If you do not wish to register an account and become a BBI user, do not conclude the agreement, do not access, view, download, or otherwise use this webpage, information, or services. By clicking “join now,” you acknowledge that you have read and understood the terms and conditions of this agreement and that you agree to be bound by all its provisions.
BBI uses the information you provide to:
In order to become a User, you must provide us the following information to create an account: name, email address, country, and password. Without this minimal amount of information, you cannot create a BBI account. Like other passwords, you should choose one that is known only by you. BBI requests other information from you during the registration process, (e.g., gender, location, etc.) that BBI uses to provide better, more customized services such as language-specific profile pages and updates, better ads, and more valuable career opportunities. You acknowledge that this information is personal to you, and by creating an account on BBI, you allow others, including BBI, to identify you and to allow BBI to use your information in accordance with its User Agreement.
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. BBI does not store unencrypted personally identifiable information in the cookies.
To support the Services BBI provides at no cost to its Users, as well as provide a more relevant and useful experience for its Users, may target and serve its own ads and third-party ads both on and off the site using ad networks. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad exchanges, ad technology vendors and research firms.
BBI may target ads to Users based on general profile categories (e.g., “product managers in Texas”) or on non-personally identifiable information inferred from a User’s profile (e.g., industry, current or former company, school, compensation bracket, gender, age, ethnic origin, nationality, or other aspects of your life) in addition to a User’s use of BBI or their clicking on BBI ad inventory. BBI does not provide personally identifiable information to any third party ad network.
BBI may use ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, anonymous ad network tags, and cookies to more effectively serve ads to its Users on and off BBI through ad networks, as well as to collect anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers. Because your web browser requests advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
Due to the communications standards on the internet, when you visit the BBI website BBI automatically receives the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave BBI. Additionally, advertisers receive the URL of the page you were on when you click on an ad on BBI. BBI also receives the internet protocol (“IP”) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, email patterns, your mobile device (including your UDID) and mobile operating system (if you are accessing BBI using a mobile device), as well as the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier. BBI may also receive location data passed to it from third-party services or GPS-enabled devices that you have enabled. Also, as described above in Sections 1.E. and 1.F., BBI receives information when you access web pages containing BBI interactive plugins, such as “Share on BBI” or “Apply with BBI” functionality. You can control the collection and use of this information here. The link between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties without your permission, except as described in Section 2.L (“Compliance with Legal Process”), below.
BBI will retain your information for so long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to close your account, you may do so here. BBI will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with its legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce this Agreement.
