Bexi, Inc. (“Bexi”) is committed to the beliefs that preserving your privacy is essential to your enjoyment and productive use of the website and that user privacy is important to the successful functioning of the Internet.
For your convenience, we have organized this Policy in accordance with frequently asked questions about user privacy.
Can minors use the Website?
No. Bexi only allows persons over the age of eighteen to use the Website and Bexi’s services. Bexi complies with the broad provisions of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”). If you are under 18, please be sure to read this Policy with your parents or legal guardians, and please ask questions about things you do not understand. You can also email Bexi any questions you have about privacy at the following email address: Privacy@Bexi.io
What is personally identifiable information?
Personally identifiable information (“PII”) is information about you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, user identification, and password.
How can I correct, access, and update my information?
You may view and edit your PII at any time by contacting us via the link on our Website.
How does Bexi protect your personally identifiable information?
Bexi exercises care consistent with the best practices in the industry to protect your PII. This care includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection, and Website monitoring. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Bexi strives to protect your PII, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Bexi or receive from Bexi. This is especially true for information you transmit to Bexi via e-mail. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we will ensure its security on our servers in a manner consistent with the best practices in the industry.
When does Bexi collect personally identifiable information?
Bexi does not collect PII unless you voluntarily supply Bexi with information. Whether you provide any information to us when you visit the Website is entirely up to you, because it is possible to visit and explore some parts of the Website without creating an account. If, however, you decide to create an account, some of your basic PII, such as your name, username, password, and email address will be collected. If you voluntarily provide information, you consent to our collection and use of your PII as described in this Policy. If you are a visiting minor between 13 and 18, Bexi recommends that you refrain from providing any PII unless you obtain the permission of your parent or guardian in advance.
How does Bexi use personally identifiable information?
Bexi uses all of the information you provide, including some of your PII, internally to improve the services we provide to you. Bexi may use your contact information to send you information about our services, if you choose to receive such information. Bexi may use your contact information to help service providers who are members of the Bexi network find your Bexi profile. Your account settings will control whether others can find you by your email address or cell phone number. If you email Bexi, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request.
When does Bexi disclose personally identifiable information?
Bexi do not sell or rent PII collected through this Website to anyone. With your consent obtained in advance, Bexi may, in some circumstances, share PII you voluntarily provide us with trustworthy business partners who provide goods and services to our users. In some special cases, Bexi may disclose PII in response to a lawful court order, to comply with legal process, to protect and defend our rights or property, to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Website Use Agreement, or to protect the interests of our users or others.
What does Bexi do with information which is not personally identifiable information?
When you navigate the Website, your clicks and keystrokes will provide Bexi with information which is not personally identifiable information traceable directly to you (“Non-PII”). Bexi will use Non-PII to evaluate and improve the services we provide to you and other users. Also, Bexi may aggregate statistics about visitors to our Website, and about their behavior on our Website, in order to analyze trends and to improve our services, and Bexi may share those statistics with third-parties, but such aggregated statistics will constitute Non-PII and will not include PII.
What are cookies and how does Bexi use them?
Our Website like many other commercial websites, may use a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how our Website is used. Cookies are small strings of text that websites can send to your browser to identify your browser as one that has visited the Website before. Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive and cannot or obtain your e-mail address or disseminate your PII.
How can I help protect my personally identifiable information?
If you are using the Website and chose a password, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Bexi will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail. Also remember to sign out of the registered Website and close your browser window when you have finished your work. Taking these steps will ensure that others cannot access your PII and correspondence if others have access to your computer.
Should I review the privacy policies on other websites which are linked to Bexi.com?
The Website may contain links to other websites. While Bexi seeks to link only to websites that share our standards and respect for online privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by other websites because such websites are owned and controlled by third parties and are consequently outside of our control. Therefore, you should carefully review the privacy policies on any of our other websites which you visit, particularly on websites in which you create an account or profile which requests PII.
