BNTouch Privacy Policy

Last Updated: March 10, 2020

BNTouch (“we”, “us”, “our”, or “BNTouch”) is committed to protecting our users’ and visitors’ (“you”, “your”) personal and confidential information. In the course of providing you with the BNTouch Services (as described in the applicable Terms of Service), we need to collect and maintain certain nonpublic personal information about you. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes our intended use of any of your navigational information, personal or sensitive information acquired, stored and/or maintained through your use or visit of the BNTouch Services including the Site, App and/or products. This Policy applies to all data, including Navigational Data, Personal Data, and sensitive data collected by us. It also describes your choices regarding use, access, rights and correction of your Personal Data. If You do not agree with the data practices described in this Privacy Policy, you must cease use of the BNTouch Services, as we will be unable to provide them without the use of personal and confidential information described herein.

By accessing the BNTouch Services, you agree to comply with this Policy, and that your visit and use of the BNTouch Services, and any dispute directly arising out of your use or misuse, shall be governed by this Policy. We may modify the terms of this Policy (including Our Terms of Use and Terms of Service, located at https://BNTouch.com/agreements/) at any time in our sole discretion, by posting amended terms to this Policy to the Site or App. If we believe a change to the Policy materially affects you, we will send you an email notifying users of the change made to this Policy.

Your continued use of the BNTouch Services thereafter shall constitute immediate acceptance of all revised, modified and/or amended terms to this Policy. However, you should review the most up-to-date version of the Policy from time-to-time on the Site. We will notify you of any material changes, amendments or modifications to the Policy through the Site, mobile App, or through other communication. In the event you choose not to agree and accept the new, modified or amended Policy, you shall cease use of all the BNTouch Services and provide us with written notice.

Nothing in this Policy shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits. Additional terms may apply to certain BNTouch Services, and those additional terms shall become part of your agreement with us if you use those services or products. Our partners, affiliates, vendors, manufacturers, distributors, licensors and/or third-party websites may have additional privacy policy terms, restrictions, limitations and data collection and protection practices that you should review separately and independently from this Policy. We are not liable for the data collection, storage and usage practices of any third-party affiliate, vendor, licensor or the like.

This policy does not apply to information you provide to us via other means, such as by mail or by telephone, nor does it govern information we receive about you from other sources.
