      • Limiting the Collection of Personal Information
      • BFDT limits its collection of personal information to only that information which is necessary for the Identified Purposes. BFDT does not direct its site to, nor does it knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of thirteen.

        When you visit the BFDT web site, a cookie may be placed on your computer or the cookie may be read if you have visited the BFDT site previously. BFDT uses cookies to allow BFDT to determine which products and services you have already purchased so that BFDT does not provide redundant information to you, and, if you are an BFDT affiliate, to track BFDT sales made to customers referred by you so that you can receive compensation under our affiliate program. If you choose to not have your browser accept cookies from the BFDT web site, you may not be able to view all the text on the screens, or to experience a personalised visit, or to subscribe to certain service and product offerings on the BFDT site.

      • Disclosure, Processing and Retention

BFDT does not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to anyone else, except:

  1. to someone you have designated to act as your agent, for one or more of the Identified Purposes (listed in Section 2, above);
  2. a very limited amount, and in very few cases, to BFDT’s employees, independent contractors, subsidiaries, affiliates, consultants, business associates, service providers, suppliers and agents, acting on BFDT’s behalf for any of the Identified Purposes;
  3. as necessary if BFDT has reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with BFDT’s rights or property, other users of BFDT’s web site, products or services, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities; and
  4. to respond to judicial process and provide information to law enforcement agencies or in connection with an investigation on matters related to public safety, as permitted by law, or otherwise as required by law.

In addition, as we continue to develop our business, we or our affiliates may sell or buy other businesses or entities, or we may merge with another company. In such transactions, personal information may be one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that BFDT or substantially all of its assets are acquired, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets.

Your information may be stored and processed in the United States, or in any other country in which BFDT or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities. By using this web site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

After your account becomes inactive (that is, if you request to be removed from our database), BFDT will keep your personal information in its archives. Your information will then be used only as necessary for tax reasons or to prove BFDT’s compliance with any applicable law.

  • Accuracy of Personal Information
  • BFDT will use reasonable efforts to keep customer personal information accurate for the Identified Purposes, and for minimizing the possibility of making inappropriate customer decisions based on such information. Customers are responsible for informing BFDT about changes to their personal information. BFDT will use new or updated personal information it receives from customers to update its own records.
  • Security Safeguards
  • BFDT will use reasonable efforts to protect customers’ personal information.
  • Access to Personal Information

BFDT will afford you a reasonable opportunity to review the personal information in your file, if you so request by writing to:

2648 Hubbard Road
Madison Ohio 44057

If BFDT is not able to provide access to some aspect of a customer’s personal information, it will provide reasons for denying access such as; that by doing so would likely reveal personal information about a third party, or that it is confidential commercial information or attorney’client privileged communications, or that the information relates to a breach of an agreement or a contravention of law, or that its disclosure could reasonably be expected to threaten the life or security of another individual.
Customers have the right to request that inaccurate or incomplete information be amended as appropriate, by contacting BFDT as described above.’ BFDT will promptly correct such personal information.’
