1. General information
When you visit the BNI Website, we collect certain personal information from you (for example: your name, email address, payment details, contact telephone number, password). Such information is treated as strictly confidential, and is held on our secure (password- and firewall- protected) servers.
To read more on how your personal information is going to be handled, please refer to our Terms and Conditions of Service Policy.
In order to serve you most efficiently, reputable third-party banking and finance and distribution firms handle our credit card transactions and order fulfilment. They receive the information needed to verify and authorise your payment card and to process your order. These firms have strict obligations to keep your personal information private.
BNI may disclose your information to regulatory authorities to comply with a law or legal request, to address security, fraud or technical matters or to protect BNI’s rights or interests.
We may also use banner advertising on other websites to present you with products and services we think may be of interest to you, based on your web browsing history.
To make full use of the online shopping and personalised features on bni.co.uk, your computer, tablet or mobile phone needs to accept Cookies, as we can only provide you with certain personalised features of our Website by using Cookies.
Cookies are small text files containing information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored on your computer, tablet or mobile phone when you visit certain web pages. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
“Session cookies” keep track of you while you navigate our website, and will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. “Persistent cookies” enable our website to recognise you when you visit, and they remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
We use both “session” and “persistent” cookies on our Website.
Our advertisers/payment services providers may also send you cookies.
Cookies do not store sensitive information (for example: your name, address or payment details); they simply hold the ‘key’ which, once you have logged in to a Website, is associated with this information.
However, if you prefer to restrict, block or delete Cookies from www.bni.co.uk, or any other website, you can use your browser to do this. Each browser is different, so check the ‘Help’ menu of your particular browser (or your mobile phone’s manual) to learn how to change your Cookie preferences. Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this website.
