Benefit Allocation Systems, LLC and its subsidiaries and affiliates (hereafter referred to as “BAS”) are committed to respecting your privacy and strive to maintain the privacy and security of your personal information.  At times, we may ask you to provide information about yourself.  This Online Privacy Statement regarding the privacy of the personally identifiable information (“PII”) you provide online, along with the information we receive through your use of our website.  We reserve the right to amend, modify or supplement our privacy policy at any time in accordance with applicable law.  We encourage you to read this Online Privacy Statement in full to learn how we treat your personal information and check back regularly for updates.

Awareness

BAS provides this Online Privacy Statement to make you aware of our online privacy policy and practices and of the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

What we collect

We collect personal information in various ways to better serve you.  The personal information we collect may include your name, title, company, address, phone number, mailing address, email address, educational and employment information, and other relevant data.  We generally do not require this information to obtain access to our website, but may ask you for this information when you correspond with us, make a purchase, request products, demos or services or register to receive materials.  We automatically receive and record information from your computer and browser, including your IP address, software and hardware attributes and the website page you request.  This information allows us to process your request or purchase order correctly, to contact you should the need arise and to support your customer relationship with BAS.

We may collect information during your visit to our website through session-based “cookies” (small text files that are stored in the browser memory (not your PC’s hard drive) to identify your particular session in the site). We use cookies to help us compile statistics about the usage of our website.  This information may be used to improve content and personalize your user experience.  However, by modifying your Internet browser preferences, you have the ability to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies.  Please note that if you choose to reject all cookies, you will not be able to use those services or engage in those activities on our website that require the placement of cookies.

In order to tailor our communications with you and continuously improve our products and services, we may also ask you to voluntarily provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with our products, and contact preferences.

How we use it

BAS uses your information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate back to you, to update you on service and benefits, and to personalize our website for you.

From time to time, we may use your information to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. We will give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such marketing contact.

We also use information we collect for our internal purposes, in an aggregated form, to measure number of website visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, and other relevant statistics.  We collect this information to measure the use of our website and to improve the content and processes of our website.

Who we share it with

BAS considers the personal information contained in our business records to be confidential.  BAS will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others.  Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide online with other BAS entities and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf for the uses described above. Such BAS entities and/or business partners, including those in the United States and/or any other countries, are governed by our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data and are bound by the appropriate confidentiality agreements or applicable law.

Access

Links to third party websites on our site are provided solely as a convenience to you. If you use these links, you will leave our website. BAS has not reviewed all of these third party sites and does not control and is not responsible for any of these sites, their content or their privacy policies. Thus, BAS does not endorse or make any representations about them, or any information, software or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you decide to access any of the third party sites linked to this site, you do this entirely at your own risk.  We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement of any and every site you visit, whether you are linking from our site or browsing on your own.

Security

BAS is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We limit access to personal information about you to only those of our employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.  We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as ePHI, PII, and credit card information.  We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal information any time you are on the Internet by changing  your passwords often, using a combination of letters and numbers, and making sure you use a secure browser, among other measures.

Oversight

BAS does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13) and does not wish to collect any such information.

BAS reserves the right to modify or amend this Online Privacy Statement at any time by posting a revised Online Privacy Statement on our site. The changes will only affect the information we collect after the date of the change to our Online Privacy Statement.

If we are going to use your personal information in a way that is different from the Online Privacy Statement at the time of collection, we will try to contact you via email using the most recent information we have.  If you have not given us permission to communicate with you, you will not be contacted, and we will not use your personal information in the new manner.
