Additionally, the Website may also use "cookies" and pixel tags in certain areas to collect information. A "cookie" is a very small piece of information that tells our site that you have visited previously. Our site will send the "cookie" file to your browser. If your browser is set to accept cookies, the "cookie" will be stored as a file on your computer's hard drive, and often takes up to 200 bytes of disk space. The "cookie" acts like an identity card each time you visit our site. Only our site can read the "cookie"; we cannot read "cookies" sent by other sites. We automatically track certain information based upon your behavior on the site. This information about your behavior on the site is used by us so that we may better serve you and provide the products you wish.

Because users make their personal information and other associated content public on the Website, this information can be associated with the user both on and off of the Website and can appear when someone performs a search on the Website or a public search engine. The Website pages are public pages and information shared by a user on the Website is public information; therefore, such information potentially can be seen and used by anyone on or off of the Website. Accordingly, users should not post and should refrain from publishing any information on the Website that the user wants to keep private; use of the Website allows everyone, including all other Website users and people unconnected to the Website, to access and use that information and to associate it with the user (i.e., the user's name and profile picture).

However, BP will not provide the user's name or other personal identifying information to advertisers or other affiliates without the user's permission (except information published or posted by the user) and will not otherwise share information obtained from a user with others (except information published or posted by the user) unless BP has received permission from the user, given the user notice in the BP Privacy Policy and/or Terms of Use, or removed the user's name and other personally identifying information from the information.

Security: Access to the information you provide is limited to BP employees and contractors who need it in order to serve customers or to maintain our information systems. BP makes every effort to ensure that your non-public personal information is protected while you are on our Website. Our Website uses encryption so that your non-public personal information (such as email address and password) cannot be read as is passes over the Internet. Please do your part by keeping your email address and password secure, and by signing off when you are finished using a shared computer.

If we are aware of a child under the age of 13 attempting to register on the Website (without an adult representative or guardian), we will not accept the registration. Once we become aware of a child under the age of 13 providing personal information, we will attempt to delete that information. If your child has provided personal information, please contact us so we can delete it. If you are under the age of 13, do not provide us with any personal information.

Notifications Regarding Death or Non-Usage. If requested to do so by next of kin or another individual with power of attorney or executory authority, BP will terminate a deceased person's BP account (i.e., remove the deceased person's personal information and profile page content). BP may choose, in its own discretion to terminate a deceased person's BP account without a formal request, but assumes no obligation to do so. Other information left by the deceased person on the Website will not be removed unless deleted by other BP users. Likewise, a BP user representing a business or organization can terminate the business' or organization's BP account at any time and should do so if the business or organization no longer exists. BP may terminate a business' or organization's BP account if BP has reason to believe that the business or organization no longer exists, but assumes no obligation to do so.
