Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
Better Chains is not in the business of selling your information, and we take your privacy very seriously. In the course of providing the Better Chains Service to you and other users, we make limited disclosures of your information to others for a variety of purposes.
We share your information with third parties where we believe such sharing is 1) incident to our ordinary business operations (e.g., emailing you through a third party server), 2) legally required or when we choose to collaborate with a law enforcement agency in the investigation or other law enforcement activity, 3) useful to protect and defend our rights and property, 4) useful to protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public, or 5) authorized by you.
No third parties have this access to our visitor information including our BOSS application, and your personal information will not be collected by websites or over time.
Do Not Track Disclosure (DNT)
This Do Not Track policy allows an operator of BOSS to declare that it respects Do Not Track as a meaningful privacy opt-out of tracking, so that privacy-protecting software can better determine whether to block or anonymize communications with this domain. Individual visitors are not tracked in our homepage and landing pages. Information collected is anonymous, and we don’t sell or share any visitor and customer information with other companies. Logged in users’ visits are audited and recorded based on system usage policies. You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.
Better Chains takes certain precautions to protect our users’ information and to limit the risk that it will be accessed without authorization, including use of certain industry standard technologies and practices. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Better Chains, and you do so at your own risk. If Better Chains learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Better Chains may post a notice through the Better Chains Service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach, or if you have any questions about the security of Better Chains applications, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
