  • Voluntarily Submitted Information
    In order to obtain access to information or to engage in certain actions on the Site, you may provide personal information, which may include your name, e-mail address, mailing address, and phone number. [Personal information may also be collected if you contact or otherwise correspond with us, for example, from your responses to any surveys you complete on the Site.] It is up to you whether to submit personal information to us, and how much personal information to provide (although some content and activities may not be available to you on the Site depending on the choices you make).
  • Information Gathered by the Site
    We may use automatic data collection technologies to collect information about you, your equipment, browsing actions and patterns automatically, including, but not limited to, cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies. We may tie this information to personal information that you provide to us. Some content on the Site is served by third parties. These third parties may place cookies, in addition to other technologies, on your computer to collect information about you when you use the Site. They may use this information to provide you with targeted content. We do not control the tracking of these third parties or how they are used. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third parties. If you have any questions about targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

    • Web beacons are small electronic files that permit BQE Tours to count users who have visited the Site and track other related website statistics.
    • Cookies are pieces of information that a website sends to your computer while you are viewing the website. If you prefer not to receive cookies through our site, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you choose to block cookies, however, you may lose some website functionality.

[The Site may also use other technical methods to track and analyze the traffic patterns on the Site and session information, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Site and the times and dates of visits to the Site. We may do this in order to measure Site activity, to develop ideas for improving our website, and for any other purpose not prohibited by applicable law. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We may also use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that we send the Site users to determine whether such users have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. We may collect the information from use of these technical methods in a form that is personally identifiable.]

Our Use of Information
When you contact us through the Site, we will use the information you provide to process your request or comment. You have the option to subscribe for other correspondence, such as our newsletter, which may require that you provide additional personal information. We may use the personal information we collect about you in several other ways, including, among others, to present the Site and its contents to you, to provide you with information or services that you request from BQE Tours, to notify you about changes to the Site or any services we offer or provide through it, and to allow you to participate in interactive features on the Site.

WE DO NOT SELL OR RENT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

Disclosure of Information
We will not disclose your personal information to any other party except in limited circumstances, including (1) with your consent; or (2) when we have a good faith belief that it is required by law, for example, pursuant to a court order or similar governmental request. We may also disclose information in connection with enforcing our Terms of Use, or any other agreements, or to protect your safety or security (such as exchanging information with companies or organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction), or to protect the safety and security of the Site, databases, or third parties.

We may disclose information about our users to third parties we use to support BQE Tours and its affairs, to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of BQE Tours’ assets, whether as a going concern or as part of a bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding in which personal information held by BQE Tours about the Site users is among the assets transferred, to other recipients for any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information, or to others if you have previously consented to such disclosure.

Accessing, Correcting, or Deleting your Information
You can send us an email at info@bqetours.com to request access to, correct, update, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us (although some deleted information may persist on backup media, and BQE Tours has no obligation to access, modify, or delete information contained in such backup media). We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law, regulation, legal requirement, or applicable policy or cause the information to be incorrect.

California Privacy Rights

No Guarantee of Security
We have implemented security measures to maintain the integrity and security of your personal information under our control, including good faith efforts to store such information in a secure operating environment, but we cannot guarantee complete security. Also, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and any transmission of personal information, therefore, is at your own risk. We will not be responsible or liable for, and will be held harmless from, any damages, losses, or causes of action arising out of or in connection with any disclosure of your personal information. Information collected through the Site will be retained for a length of time appropriate to uses permitted under this Privacy Policy.
