Information We Collect
When you visit BFConsortium.org, you provide us with two types of information, both of which are collected by us: personal information that you knowingly choose to disclose, and website use information collected by us as you interact with our website.
When you enter BFConsortium.org website, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all BFConsortium.org website users. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using “cookies.” Cookies are pieces of data stored on a user’s computer tied to information about that user. For example, we use session identification (ID) cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies automatically terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to BFConsortium.org. You may block or remove this convenience feature through the settings in your Web browser.
By using this website, you agree and acknowledge that your posting of user content on the site is done solely at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share information, nor can we guarantee that our security system will not ever be breached. We cannot and do not guarantee that user content you post on the site will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the site. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of user content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your user content.
By using the BFConsortium.org website, you are consenting to have any data you enter transferred to and processed in the United States.
Children Under Age 18
BFConsortium.org does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18, please do not send to us or post on our website any personal information about yourself including your name, address, telephone number or email address. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 18 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us at [email protected].
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
BFConsortium.org will share your information with third parties where such sharing is 1) permitted by you, or 2) legally required. We may also provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the specified purposes.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We may reveal information if we have a good-faith belief that an information request by regulatory or law enforcement officials or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through BFConsortium.org service or using the Breastfeeding Friendly Consortium name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
Through interactions with third-party sites, we may inadvertently receive some information about you or your use of the third-party site even if you are logged out of BFConsortium.org, or that pertains to non-BFConsortium.org users, from those sites in conjunction with the technical operation of the system.
Certain information you post to the website may be shared with other users beyond these privacy policies. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information on any information submitted to a website, such as a blog, comments, messages, photos, videos, or other items, this information may become publicly available.
