BFE may collect and maintain information your share and/or provide while using the website (including your name, postal addresses, billing address, telephone number, email address and, when necessary, credit card information, login data).

Using Information BFE Collects

BFE always wants to provide you with the best possible shopping experience and fulfill your orders exactly as you’ve requested. In order to do this, BFE may collect information that allows BFE to process and track your orders, provide the products and services you request, contact you about the status of an order, send you promotional mailers, send you email, identify your product and service preferences, customize our communications to you, provide information concerning products you have purchased, and/or improve our merchandise selection and customer service.

BFE may also use your information to provide you with various ways to connect and share content (e.g., web content, user generated videos, text, drawings, screen captures, media, tools, services and other products) with third parties. BFE may also allow you to share links to content with users of various third party services (e.g., social networking, search and sharing services). When sharing links using one of these third party services, if you are not already logged in to the third party service, you will need to supply login credentials for it. If you are not a registered user of the third party service, you will need to sign up for it. You are supplying the registration information or login credentials for the third party service directly to that third party, and not to BFE. By using any of these third party services to share links to content, you permit BFE to access, use and disclose any information relating to your account on each such third party service (such as your user name and profile information) that is available to BFE through the third party service, including through its application programming interface (API) pursuant to this policy.

Security of Your Information

BFE’s merchandise store through Shopify is certified Level 1 PCI DSS compliant. What is PCI DSS Compliance? The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organizations that handle credit card and debit card information. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around credit card data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure. If you want to sell online and accept payments from Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover credit cards, your software and hosting needs to be PCI compliant. There are six categories of PCI standards that must be met in order for a merchant to be deemed compliant: Maintain a Secure Network; Protect Cardholder Data; Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program; Implement Strong Access Control Measures; Regularly Monitor and Test Networks; and Maintain an Information Security Policy. This compliance extends to all online stores powered by Shopify, including BFE’s merchandise store.

Privacy of Children

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and imposes certain requirements on websites directed toward children under 13 that collect information on those children, or on websites that know they are collecting information on children under the age of 13. It is BFE’s policy not to collect personal information on any person known to be under age 13.
