Information Collection and Use
We collect and use your information to provide our Services and improve them over time.
Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or modify an bkr GbR account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, email address, and password. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with the Service, improving the content of the Service, customizing the content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features.
Information Collected Automatically: When you use the Service, bkr GbR automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform, including your location, IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested. We treat this data as non-Identifying Information, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. bkr GbR only uses this data in aggregate form. We may provide aggregate information to our partners about how bkr GbR Users, collectively, use our Service, so that our partners may also understand how often people use their services and our Service.
We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other bkr GbR Users (defined below) to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service and to analyse and understand how our Services are being used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions.
We also use your Personal Information to contact you with bkr GbR newsletters, marketing materials, and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your "user profile" information. Please note that we may also use your Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the Service; you may not opt out of these notifications.
When you visit the Service, whether as a bkr GbR User or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, a "bkr GbR User"), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Service, pages of our Service that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Service, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Service and for the Service's technical administration, to increase our Service's functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor it to our visitors' needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Service meet the criteria required to process their requests. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.
Our Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our Service is used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We do not disclose your private information except in the limited circumstances described here.
Information you enter into bkr GbR will be accessible by other users on your team, unless you mark information as Private or Public.
Information marked Private will be accessible by anyone you invite to view and edit your information.
Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft and phishing is a top priority. bkr GbR will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission's website at http://www.ftc.gov.
Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
Third Party Services
bkr GbR uses a variety of services hosted by third parties to help provide our Services, such as hosting our blog, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These services may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP request.
bkr GbR will also share or disclose your information with your consent, such as when you use a third party client to access the bkr GbR Services.
Law and Harm
We may disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect bkr GbR's rights or property.
Modifying Your Personal Information
If you are a registered user of our Services, we provide you with tools to access or modify the personal information you provided to us and associated with your account. Even after you delete your account or profile, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere, to the extent it has been shared with others.
Your bkr GbR account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately, and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
bkr GbR cannot, however, guarantee the security of user account information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure; and, unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.
Links to Other Services
Our Service contains links to other websites. If you choose to visit another website advertiser by "clicking on" a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other Services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them.
Logging In with Slack
You can log in to our Service using Slack. This service will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name, email address, and picture to pre-populate your profile.
Not For Children
None of our websites, applications or services are intended for children. Please do not submit information about yourself using our websites if you are under 13.
bkr GbR does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will take steps to delete such information and terminate the child’s account.
