We collect certain information through our website, bigredabacus.com (our “Website”). This page (this “Privacy Policy”) lays out our policies and procedures surrounding the collection and handling of any such information that identifies an individual user or that could be used to contact or locate him or her (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”).

This Privacy Policy applies only to our Website. It does not apply to any third-party site or service linked to our Website or recommended or referred by our Website or by our staff. And it does not apply to any other website or online service operated by our company, or to any of our off-line activities.

PII we collect
We use “cookies” to collect certain information from all users. A cookie is a string of data our system sends to your computer and then uses to identify your computer when you return to our Website.

Our use of PII
We use your Personally Identifiable Information to create your account, and to communicate with you about products and services you’ve purchased. We also use that information to the extent necessary to enforce our Website terms of service and to prevent imminent harm to persons or property.

We use cookies so that our Website can remember you and provide you with the information you’re most likely to need. For instance, when you return to our Website, cookies can be used to identify you and to sign you into the Website automatically.

Protection of PII
We employ the following data security technologies to protect Personally Identifiable Information: Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS), cryptographic hashing, and symmetric and public-key cryptography. Unfortunately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using our Website, you acknowledge and agree that we make no such guarantee, and that you use our Website at your own risk.

Contractor and other third-party access to PII
We also may disclose PII to attorneys, collection agencies, or law enforcement authorities to address potential AUP violations, other contract violations, or illegal behavior. We disclose any information demanded in a court order or otherwise required by law or to prevent imminent harm to persons or property.

As noted above, we compile Website usage statistics from data collected through cookies. We may publish those statistics or share them with third parties, but they don’t include PII.

Accessing and correcting your PII
You can access and change any Personally Identifiable Information we store through your “Profile” page.

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a new version on this page or on a successor page. The new version will become effective on the date it’s posted, which will be listed at the top of the page as the new “Effective Date”.
