The following policy explains our privacy practices for the use of this website, (which we’ll refer to as the “Site”). The domain name of the Site is registered in the UK, while the server upon which we run the online showroom you are currently accessing is located in the United States. BIC is the data controller and is responsible for your personal information, and it is located in the United Kingdom. Privacy Policy

British Italian Conservatives (“BIC”) values the privacy of visitors to our website and individuals whose personal information we may receive through email contact or the use of form submissions and other related services.

This Privacy Policy also applies to personal information that we collect by other means, which we combine with personal information collected on our Privacy Policy Website or through the operation and delivery of our Services.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the BIC Terms of Service. Any capitalized terms not defined herein have the meaning set forth in the BIC Terms of Service.

1. Websites Covered

This privacy policy covers the information practices of websites that link to this privacy policy, including, but not limited to BIC’s website may contain links to websites operated by third parties.

We encourage you to learn about such third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with personal information.

2. Information We Collect

We collect the following data about users: (1) information that you voluntarily submit to us (“User-Supplied Information”); (2) technical data automatically collected from all visitors to the BIC Website (described below under “Passive Data Collection”); and (3) information we may collect from third party sources.

User-Supplied Information. We may collect user-supplied information when you choose to provide us with your Personal information via the BIC Website, including when you send us an email asking a question.

Passive Data Collection. Like most web-based services, we automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser when you use the BIC Website.
