  1. What BBI’s Privacy Policy Covers:
  1. How BBI uses your information.
  1. Registration

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.

  1. Profile Information

Once you become a User, you may provide additional information to your BBI Profile describing your skills, professional experiences, educational background, recommendations from other BBI Users, group memberships, and networking objectives (among other options). Providing additional information about yourself beyond what is minimally required at registration is entirely up to you, but providing additional information enables you to derive more benefit from BBI and your professional network by helping you build your professional identity and leverage your professional network and facilitating your search for professional resources, information, and new opportunities. Any information you provide at registration or in the Profile section may be used by BBI as described in the Terms Of Use and this Privacy Policy, including for the purpose of allowing professional opportunities to find you.

  1. Cookies

Like most websites, BBI uses cookies and web log files to track site usage and trends, to improve the quality of its service, to customize your experience on BBI, as well as to deliver BBI and third-party advertising to Users both on and off the BBI site. A cookie is a tiny data file that resides on your computer, mobile phone, or other device, and allows us to recognize you as a User when you return to the BBI website using the same computer and web browser. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases doing so may impact your ability to use BBI.  Another type of cookie, called a “session” cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the BBI website. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser. Other technology like Macromedia’s flash can be used to place the functional equivalent of a cookie on your computer. You can control flash “local stored objects” or “flash cookies” using the Macromedia Website Privacy Settings Panel at BBI may use cookie-equivalent technology for the limited purpose of enhancing the security of BBI's services. BBI does not use flash cookies for advertising purposes.

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.

  1. Advertising and Web Beacons

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.

  1. Log files, IP Addresses and information about your computer and mobile device

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.

  1. Data Retention

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.

  1. Your obligations as a User.
    1. As a User, you have certain obligations to other Users. Some of these obligations are imposed by applicable law and regulations, and others have become commonplace in user-friendly communities of like-minded members.
    2. You must, at all times, abide by the terms and conditions of the then-current Privacy Policy and User Agreement. This includes respecting all intellectual property rights that may belong to third parties (such as trademarks or photographs).
    3. You must not download or otherwise disseminate any information that may be deemed to be injurious, violent, offensive, racist or xenophobic, or which may otherwise violate the purpose and spirit of BBI and its community of Users.
    4. You must not provide to BBI and/or other Users information that you believe might be injurious or detrimental to your person or to your professional or social status.
    5. You must keep your username and password confidential and not share it with others.
    6. Any violation of these guidelines may lead to the restriction, suspension or termination of your account at the sole discretion of BBI.
  1. Changes In Privacy Policy
    1. BBI may update this Privacy Policy at any time, with or without advance notice. In the event there are significant changes in the way BBI treats your personally identifiable information, or in the Privacy Policy document itself, BBI will display a notice on the BBI website or send you an email, so that you may review the changed terms prior to continuing to use the site. As always, if you object to any of the changes to BBI’s terms, and you no longer wish to use BBI, you may close your account.
    2. Unless stated otherwise, BBI’s current Privacy Policy applies to all information that BBI has about you and your account.
    3. Using the BBI Services after a notice of changes has been sent to you or published on BBI’s site shall constitute consent to the changed terms or practices.
  2. Legal Disclaimer
    1. BBI reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when BBI believes that disclosure is necessary to protect its rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on its website.
