Privacy Policy

 

The Bureau is sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet. We believe it is important you know how we treat the information about you we receive on the Internet. In general, you can visit the   Bureau on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. The   Bureau uses this information to measure the use of our site and to improve   the content of our site. There are times, however, when we may need information from you, such as your name and address. When information is needed, we will try to let you know at the time of collection, how we will   use the personal information. Usually, the personal information we collect is  used only by us to respond to your inquiry, process an order or allow you to   access specific account information. Occasionally, we may make the e-mail addresses, of those who provide information, available to other reputable organizations whose products or services we think you may find interesting.   In these cases, you will be offered an opportunity to limit access to your information. A technology called cookies may be used to provide you with tailored information. A cookie is a tiny element of data that a web site can   send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive so we can recognize you when you return. You may set your browser to notify you when you   receive a cookie. At times we conduct on-line surveys to better understand   the needs and profile of our visitors. When we conduct a survey, we will try   to let you know how we will use the information at the time we collect information from you on the Internet.
