Definitions

“Cookies” means small files sent to your browser from a web server and stored in your computer.

“Information of a Non-Personal Nature” means any non-confidential, non-proprietary information derived from your connection to this website, such as your Internet browser, domain name and referrer link.

Information of a Non-Personal Nature

As a general policy, with the exception of IP addresses, no Personal Information is automatically collected from visitors to the BT website. BT may gather and analyse IP addresses and certain Information of a Non-Personal Nature regarding website usage by visitors to the BT website. Such data is used in an aggregate form to assist BT in determining general usage patterns and to administer, diagnose problems with, and fine tune the layout of, the BT website. We may share non-personal, summary, or aggregate customer data with partners and other third parties at our discretion.

Cookies

BT may use Cookies to store and sometimes track information about your use of our website. In addition to improving the general layout of the website, Cookies allow us to customize our website to each visitor's individual preferences. Although most web browsers automatically accept Cookies, you can usually change your browser to prevent you from receiving Cookies or to notify you whenever you are sent a Cookie so that you may decide whether or not to accept it. If you decide not to accept a Cookie, you can still enjoy all of the features of our website.

Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

In certain portions of the BT website, certain Personal Information may be voluntarily and knowingly provided to us by visitors to the BT website. When entering a contest or requesting membership information, for example, we will ask you for your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, as well as certain other information.

BT shall only collect Personal Information of visitors to the BT website with prior notification and shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information. If you do not want us to have access to your Personal Information, please do not provide it while using this site. When you do provide Personal Information, you are authorizing us to use it in accordance with the terms of the Privacy Policy and any other applicable terms, including your right to limit our use of the Personal Information (see “Contacting Us” below).

BT may use Personal Information for editorial, feedback or other fully disclosed purposes, such as to enter you into a contest, or issue you a tax receipt, or respond by email to an inquiry that you posed on-line, to the extent such use by BT is explained to visitors when the information is voluntarily and knowingly provided to BT. We may also match your Personal Information that you provide to us on this website to information contained in our membership database. Your Personal Information may also be used by BT to contact you regarding other services, programs or events which may be of interest to you.

We will not give, sell, rent, or loan any of your Personal Information to any third party (with the exception of third parties performing functions on our behalf who have an obligation to keep your information completely confidential or a third party who buys our business) unless you have authorized us to do so.

BT reserves the right to access and/or disclose Personal Information where required to comply with applicable laws or lawful government requests or, in BT’s reasonable opinion, to operate the BT website properly and securely, or to protect BT or visitors to this website. BT, acting reasonably, shall attempt to obtain the prior consent of the individual to whom such Personal Information relates prior to disclosure to third parties. Your Personal Information may be stored on servers hosted in the United States or otherwise outside of Canada.

A Note to Parents

BT is sensitive to privacy issues and is committed to protecting the on-line privacy of children and making the Internet safe for our users. As a result, no Personal Information should be submitted to or posted on this site by children under the age of 13 without their parent's or guardian's permission. In addition, if a user younger than 13 wishes to send us Personal Information, he or she must first give us his or her parent's or guardian's email address so that we can obtain their permission, or have the child's parent or guardian consent on his or her behalf. No Personal Information will knowingly be accepted from a child under 13 before this permission is obtained. Be assured that BT will not condition a child's participation in any website activity on the child's disclosure of more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity.

If your child has already provided us with Personal Information, you may ask to see this information for the purpose of correcting it, or ask us to delete this information from our records entirely (see “Contacting Us” below.)
