BTECH Research Privacy Policy

BTECH Research understands how important the privacy of personal information is to our users. This Privacy Policy will tell you what information we collect about you and about your use of BTECH Research and its services. It will explain the choices you have about how your personal information is used and how we protect that information. We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

This Privacy Policy applies to Web sites owned and operated by BTECH Research that are intended for use by consumers (non-professionals) for non-commercial personal, family or household purposes, including BTECH Research.com, C2AT.com, and including the mobile optimized versions of these sites (we refer to these sites collectively as the “BTECH Research Web Sites”). Except where noted, statements in this Privacy Policy with respect to the BTECH Research Web Sites also apply to BTECH Research Mobile Device Applications (or "App") for the iPhone, the iPad and mobile devices operating with the Android operating system.

References to "BTECH Research" mean BTECH Research Inc, including any company that BTECH Research, Inc controls (for example, a subsidiary that BTECH Research, Inc owns). BTECH Research may share information among its subsidiaries or web sites that it owns or controls, but information collected under this Privacy Policy is always protected under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected About You

Personal Information

If you choose to register or update an existing member profile with BTECH Research or access certain functionality on the BTECH Research Web Sites, you may be required to submit Personal Information. “Personal Information” means information that we can use to identify or contact you, such as your name, address, telephone number or email address. Some of our interactive tools and services may request you to submit health information, which would also be considered Personal Information. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personal Information that you submit to BTECH Research. Inaccurate information will affect your experience when using the BTECH Research Web Sites and tools and our ability to contact you as described in this Privacy Policy.

Registration

Access to some BTECH Research interactive tools and services may be limited to users who have registered. Some of our tools do not retain your Personal Information, while others store your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the authorization you provide at the time you submit Personal Information in order to use the tool. BTECH Research does not allow any third parties to place beacons or cookies or to gather any data about you in connection with your use of the BTECH Research Web Sites. Furthermore, BTECH Research does not use any information that you submit in connection with its tool to deliver any advertisements to you on or off of the BTECH Research Web Sites.

Newsletters & Emails to You

At registration and at various times as you use the BTECH Research Web Sites, you will be given the option of providing us with Personal Information in order to receive recurring informational/promotional newsletters via email from BTECH Research and/or directly from third parties.

When you sign up for our email newsletters or at any time, you can choose to opt out of receiving additional promotional newsletters from BTECH Research.

You can unsubscribe from a newsletter by:

  • Following the directions included at the bottom of the newsletter.
Market Research

From time to time, BTECH Research may conduct online research surveys through email invitations, pop-up surveys and online focus groups. When participating in a survey, we may ask you to enter Personal Information. The Personal Information you submit in a survey may be used by BTECH Research for research and measurement purposes, as described below, including to measure the effectiveness of content, advertising or programs. When our market research surveys collect Personal Information we will not knowingly accept participants who are under the age of 13. Market research surveys conducted by or on behalf of BTECH Research will contain a link to this Privacy Policy.

Emails You Send to BTECH Research

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information, content, business information, ideas, concepts or inventions that you send to BTECH Research by email. If you want to keep content or business information, ideas, concepts or inventions private or proprietary, do not send them in an email to BTECH Research.

Non-Personal Information

Even if you do not register with or provide any Personal Information to BTECH Research, we collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the BTECH Research Web Sites. “Non-Personal Information” means information that we cannot use to identify or contact you. We may also acquire Non-Personal Information about our users from external sources. While you may use some of the functionality of BTECH Research without registration, many of the specific tools and services on the BTECH Research Web Sites require that you register with BTECH Research.

Cookies and Web Beacons

We collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the BTECH Research Web Sites and your use of other web sites through the use of Cookies and Web Beacons. “Cookies” are small data files that are stored on the hard drive of the computer you use to view a web site. Every computer that accesses the BTECH Research Web Sites is assigned a different cookie by BTECH Research. “Web Beacons” are graphic image files imbedded in a web page typically used to monitor activity on a web page and send back to its home server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser or some other third party) information from your browser, such as the IP address, the URL of the page on which the beacon is located, the type browser that is accessing the site and the ID number of any Cookies on your computer previously placed by that server.

Mobile Device Applications (“Apps”)

When you download and install one of our BTECH Research Mobile Apps onto your mobile device we assign a random number to your App installation. This number cannot be used to identify you personally, and we cannot identify you personally unless you choose to become a registered user of the App. We use this random number in a manner similar to our use of Cookies as described in this Privacy Policy. Unlike Cookies, the random number is assigned to your installation of the App itself and not a browser, because the App does not work through your browser. Therefore the random number cannot be removed through settings. If you do not want us to use the random number for the purposes for which we use Cookies, please do not use the Mobile Device App, and please use your mobile device browser to access the BTECH Research Web Sites or our mobile optimized sites. We do not obtain any information about your mobile device, other than the brand, make and model and type of operating software your device uses. Please note that certain BTECH Research Mobile Apps require registration either to use the App or to use certain functionality in the App.

BTECH Research’s Apps obtain your consent (via an opt-in) before using information from pin-pointing technology like GPS or cell tower information. You can withdraw your consent (opt-out) for the use of "location" by BTECH Research at any time by changing your location services in the "Settings" function on your mobile device.

What Choices Do I Have?

Updating/Removing Your Personal Information

If you do not want your Personal Information used by BTECH Research as provided in this Privacy Policy, you should not register as a member or for any specific tool or application that collects Personal Information. You can correct, update or review Personal Information you have previously submitted by going back to the specific tool or application, logging-in and making the desired change. You can also update any Personal Information you have submitted by contacting us using the contact information listed below.

If you have registered and desire to delete any your Personal Information you have provided to us from our systems please contact us using the contact information listed below. Upon your request, we will delete your Personal Information from our active databases and where feasible from our back-up media.

Cookies

Most browser software can be set to reject Cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject Cookies in the "Help" section of the toolbar. If you reject our Cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of the BTECH Research Web Sites may not work properly but you do not have to accept our Cookies in order to productively use the BTECH Research Web Sites. It is important to note that in order to use the opt-out services described below, such as the Network Advertising Initiative and the TRUSTed Ads Program, you must not reject all Cookies because these opt-out procedures work by placing Cookies on your browser that enable these opt-out procedures to function. The “opt-out Cookies” are placed, for example, in order to help prevent the placement of Cookies used for the targeting of advertising.

Certain Ad Servers allow you to prevent them from collecting data through the use of Cookies. In order to do so, you must Opt-out of such data collection with each individual site. Currently, you can opt out of Cookies for several Ad Servers by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative gateway opt-out site or TRUSTe’s Preference Manager. This website will also allow you to review the Ad Server's privacy policies. You can find additional information and resources about how to opt out of advertising and related Cookies by visiting the World Privacy Forum's Site.

This information from other sources may include age, gender, demographic, geographic, personal interests, product purchase activity or other information. We may report aggregate information, which is not able to be identified back to an individual user of the BTECH Research Web Sites, to our current or prospective advertisers and other business partners. We do not sell or share any Personal Information with any third parties, except contractors performing services on our behalf who agree not to use this information received from us for any purpose other than performing services on our behalf.

In addition, we may disclose Personal Information as described below.

In the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, BTECH Research reserves the right to transfer your Personal Information to the new party in control or the party acquiring assets. In the event of such a change, your Personal Information will continue to be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy unless any changes to the Privacy Policy are made in accordance with the section below that discusses “Changes to This Privacy Policy.”

Disclosures to BTECH Research Operations and Maintenance Contractor

BTECH Research contractors sometimes have limited access to your Personal and Non-Personal Information in the course of providing products or services to BTECH Research. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, data analysis, research, advertising and marketing assistance and/or content for the operation and maintenance of the BTECH Research Web Sites. We contractually require that our operations and maintenance contractors: 1) protect the privacy of your Personal and Non-Personal Information consistent with this Privacy Policy and 2) not use or disclose your Personal or Non-Personal Information for any purpose other than providing the limited service or function for BTECH Research.

How Do We Secure and Retain Your Information?

We take reasonable security measures to protect the security of your Personal Information. Despite BTECH Research's efforts to protect your Personal Information, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the Internet may be intercepted.

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter Personal Information (including personal health information in various tools on our website), we encrypt the transmission of that information or use SSL connections (Secure Socket Layer) technology.

We will retain your Personal Information as long as your account is active or needed to provide you services.
