The privacy of our members is of paramount importance. To protect your privacy, we use the latest and most sophisticated web security and encryption protocols. As a member, any information you share with us is shared with only a select number of third party organizations (please read below), and you can at any given time opt out so that your information is not shared with any third party organization, except to comply with the law, in the exceptional event that the law mandates that we share your information. Any information associated with financial transactions between you and B²SG are limited to B²SG’s accounting department and to the financial institutions involved in the transaction. Any metadata we gather for our own analytics do not contain any personal information that would allow to personally identify the user. It is however important to note that nothing in life is absolute, and we therefore cannot guarantee the safety of information exchanged over the web (or via any medium for that matter, including via the post) with 100% certainty. It is thus important that you know that you share information with us at your own risk, and should do so only if you accept that risk. That being said, we also want you to know that we take all reasonable steps that are commercially available to us to protect both our web platforms and your information.
We will be rolling out in the near future chat rooms and other forums wherein our members can express themselves, make comments, give opinions, or post news and any other information. It is important to note that though the viewing of these posts are restricted to our members, we do have a very large member base and as such, any information exchanged in this manner should be considered an exchange in the public sphere. Please do not post any information in this manner that you would not want to be read by a complete stranger as there is no telling how that information may be used once it is released in the public domain. B²SG is not to be held responsible on how such shared information may be viewed or used by others.
Our members can also receive newsletters from us in the form of emails. In this case cookies allow us to see which themes are interesting to our members and which are not. This helps us prioritize themes and projects that are most relevant to our members and thus optimize our resource allocation. Our members can opt out at any given time from receiving our newsletter by doing so at the Unsubscribe link provided in all correspondence to our members.
Under some circumstances, we may be bound to disclose user information if compelled by the law, for example to comply with a local or international legal investigation, or to avert, at our own discretion, online activities we deem unethical or in conflict with Our Mission or philosophy, or to safeguard our platforms and the rights, safety, and privacy of our members and other web users.
With the exception of financial information (which we do not store), we keep all information on file permanently. Please feel free to write to us to amend that information, for example to report a change of address, professional affiliation, or contact information.
