Registration Information is collected so that We can (i) process Your registration and provide You with Your requested products or services (ii) contact You if there is a problem in the future, and (iii) conduct market research. We may combine the information You submit during Your registration with information we obtain from third parties.
We also utilize electronic images known as "web beacons" (sometimes called single-pixel gifs, clear gifs or action tags) that allow us to collect certain information about users' visits to Our Site, measure and improve the effectiveness of advertisements and other tools and services on Our Site. Web beacons are not used to access Your personally identifiable information; they are a technique used to compile aggregated statistics about web site usage. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of page view and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides. This information may be shared with third party processors for processing on behalf of the Boilermaker, as well as with other third parties so that they can understand the kinds of visitors to Our Site, how those visitors use Our Site, and the effectiveness of their advertisements. Because web beacons are the same as any other content request included in the recipe page, You cannot opt out or refuse them. However, they can be rendered ineffective by either opting out of cookies or changing the cookie setup in Your browser.
Disclosure of Information. We consider the personally identifiable information contained in our records to be confidential. As such we do not lease, sell or share Your personally identifiable information with third parties except (i) to provide You with products or services You have requested, (ii) with Your permission or (iii) under the following circumstances:
- We may disclose Your personally identifiable information to law enforcement or other agencies which are investigating or taking action to prevent Our Site and Our services from being used for illegal activities, including but not limited to fraud, harassment or in any other way which may violate our Terms of Service;
- We may disclose Your personally identifiable information in response to subpoenas, court orders or to otherwise exercise our legal rights; or
- In the event that ownership of the Boilermaker changes as a result of a merger, acquisition or transfer to another company, Your personally identifiable information may also be transferred. If such a transfer results in a material change in the use of Your personally identifiable information, we will provide You with notice of such change and allow You to opt out of such transfer.
Open Discussions and other Public Forums. Our Site feature several areas that allow for You to post questions, comments or other information in a open forum that can be accessed by other users of Our Site. Any information You share in any online community area like a chat room, discussion blog, or any other online discussion is by design open to other users of Our Site and is not private. What You post can be seen, disclosed to or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways We cannot control.
In addition to the Third Party Contractor Site described above, for Your convenience there are links to other third party websites that are operated by companies that are not affiliated with the Boilermaker and that do not have contracts to provide content or services through Our Site. These links may be found in advertisements, referenced within content, or placed beside the names or logos of sponsors.
Disclosure of Aggregate Information. We may provide aggregate information to third parties. For example, We might inform third parties regarding the number of users that visit Our Site and the activities they conduct while on Our Site.
Information Security. All personally identifiable information that We gather is stored and maintained in secure facilities that restrict access to authorized personnel only. We regularly test Our Site and servers for security breaches to ensure that all personally identifiable information collected is secure from unauthorized viewing. All personally identifiable information is protected in transit via HTTPS and SSL security. Despite our best efforts, no security system is impenetrable and therefore We cannot absolutely guarantee the security of Your personal information.
Children. We do not sell products or services to children under the age of 18 and do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18.
