This Privacy Policy applies to https://ukbusas.org (hereinafter, "us", "we", or "https://ukbusas.org"). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, UKBUSAS collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. UKBUSAS' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how UKBUSAS' visitors use its website. From time to time, UKBUSAS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

UKBUSAS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://ukbusas.org forum posts. UKBUSAS only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

 

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to UKBUSAS' websites choose to interact with UKBUSAS in ways that require UKBUSAS to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that UKBUSAS gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to the forum at https://ukbusas.org/forum to provide a username and email address.

 

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

UKBUSAS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on UKBUSAS' behalf or to provide services available at UKBUSAS' website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using UKBUSAS' website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, UKBUSAS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when UKBUSAS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of UKBUSAS, third parties or the public at large.
