If you provide us with information about other individuals in connection with an application for credit or employment (such as your references or the principals of your company), you represent that you have notified and obtained consent from the relevant individuals (i) to provide us with their information and (ii) for us to contact them by email or telephone. Please do not provide us with information about third parties unless you have notified them and obtained their consent as described above.





Information We Obtain By Automated Means

In addition, when you visit our Sites, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons. The information we collect in this manner includes IP address, browser characteristics, device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, information on actions taken on the Sites, and dates and times of website visits. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. Through these automated collection methods, we obtain “clickstream data,” which is a log of content on which a visitor clicks while browsing a website. As the visitor clicks through the website, a record of the action may be collected and stored. We may link certain data elements we have collected through automated means, such as your browser information, with other information we have obtained about you to let us know, for example, whether you have opened an email we sent to you. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of the Sites.

We also may use third-party web analytics services on our Sites, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers help us analyze how visitors use the Sites. The information obtained for this purpose (including your IP address and other information collected by automated means) will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. To learn about opting out of Google Analytics, please click here.

Neither we nor any third parties on our Sites obtain personal information about our visitors’ online activities, over time and across third-party websites. The Sites are not designed to respond to “do not track” signals from browsers.

The providers of third-party apps, tools, widgets and plug-ins on the Sites, such as third-party Facebook “Like” buttons, also may use automated means to collect information regarding your interactions with these features. This information is subject to the privacy policies or notices of these providers.

We also use this information to help diagnose technical and service problems, administer our Sites, identify users of our Sites, and gather demographic information about our users. We use clickstream data to determine how much time users spend on web pages of our Sites, which websites they come from, how users navigate through our Sites, and how we may tailor our Sites to better meet the needs of our users.

We also may use the information we obtain about you in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.





Information We Share

We do not sell or otherwise share personal information about you, except as described in this Online Privacy Notice. We may share the personal information we obtain with our affiliates for the purposes described in this Online Privacy Notice. We also share personal information with third parties who perform services on our behalf based on our instructions. These third parties are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. In addition, if you are part of a company account, we share your contact information with your company’s account administrator.

Information collected through third-party apps, tools, widgets and plug-ins (such as information relating to your use of a Facebook “Like” button) is collected directly by the providers of these features. This information is subject to the privacy policies of the providers of the features, and BMC is not responsible for those providers’ information practices.

We also may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or legal process (such as a court order or subpoena), (ii) in response to requests by government agencies, such as law enforcement authorities, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution or liquidation).
