What data does Bimitech collect?
When you create a Bimitech account, we ask for some personal information, including your name and email address. Your email address will be your Bimitech account user name, which you will use to log-into your account.
We do not view or store your credit card information. This is handled by our third-party payment processor. We store your name, email address and shipping address so we can process your order through our fulfillment partner. If you are logged into your Bimitech account when you purchase something on our Site, we associate that order with your Bimitech account. Your credit card information saved by our third-party payment processor and shipping address may be used for purchases approved by you for goods and services from Bimitech.
Bimitech collects industry standard data from everyone who visits our Sites—even if you don’t have a Bimitech account. This information is used to provide users with Bimitech products and services, to allow us to understand how visitors navigate our Site, and to provide advertising that is relevant to your interests.
Purchase and Login Information: If you purchase products from our Site, we request that you provide your name, email address, billing and shipping address, and any information necessary to complete the transaction. We do not collect or store your full credit card information. Our credit card processing service provider, Stripe, will collect and store full payment card information from you when an order is placed until when it ships.
Mailing List Information: You may choose to submit your name and email address via a submission form located on our Site. Your email address may be used to send you news about Bimitech related services, products or promotions. We may use one or more service providers to administer these messages, but we do not share your email address with spammers or any other third parties without your permission. If we do so, each marketing communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future marketing communications.
Information about your visit. This includes log data such as your browser type, operating system, the URL of the page that referred you, the different actions you performed, and the IP address you used to access pages on the Site. We use this type of information to provide you with an experience that’s relevant to your location based on the IP address, to prevent Site misuse, and to ensure the Site is working properly. We also collect data from cookies–small data files stored on your hard drive by a website. We may use session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal experience on our Site. This information is collected to make the Site more useful to you. The control of Cookie use can be modified in the settings for your browser.
Whenever you contact Bimitech for help, we collect your name and email address along with additional information you provide in your request so that we can verify your account and assist you and improve our Service. If you contact us for support when already logged in to your account, the request form or e-mail may contain pre-populated account information, so you don’t have to type it manually. We store your PII for as long as you maintain a Bimitech account.
What data may be shared with third parties
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is data that includes a personal identifier like your name, email or address, or data that could reasonably be linked back to you. Under no circumstance do we share personal information for any commercial or marketing purpose unrelated to the delivery of our products and services without asking you first. We will only share this data under the following circumstances:
- With companies that are contractually engaged in providing us with services, such as order fulfillment, email management and payment processing. These companies are obligated by contract to safeguard any PII they receive from us.
- We may share personal information with your consent. For example, you may let us share personal information with others for marketing uses. Those uses will be subject to their privacy policies.
- We may share information with those who need it to do work for us such as customer service suppliers who may need access to your information to deliver excellent service.
How to deactivate your Bimitech account
You can deactivate your Bimitech account at any time by contacting Customer Support. Bimitech may continue to use your non-PII data after you deactivate your account.
