Privacy Policy

Bryant Christie Inc.

Bryant Christie Inc. ("BCI") is a Washington corporation that provides its clients and members of the public ("Users") with access to certain services and data through the Internet (the "Services"). When Users access Services, they provide certain information to BCI, either directly or through the means by which they access Services. This Privacy Policy explains what kinds of data BCI collects from Users and how BCI uses and protects that data.

Information BCI Receives and Collects from Users.

BCI receives and collects information that it asks Users to provide to it before Users can access Services. This information includes personal information BCI requests Users to provide to obtain Service log-in credentials. This information may include Users' names, passwords, addresses, company identification information, information about how Users intend to use the Services, Users' geographic locations, email addresses, telephone numbers, credit card information, and the like.

BCI also receives and collects information from Users as a result of the manner in which Users access Services. This information may include the type of Service and data Users access, how frequently certain Users access certain Services and data, and the types of searches Users engage in when they use the Services. This type of information may also include information about the computer devices Users use in accessing the Services, such as types and models, operating system types, Internet Protocol addresses, and geographic locations from which Users access Services.

BCI uses various well-known technologies to collect and store information when Users access Services. These technologies may include the placement of "cookies" or "anonymous identifiers" on computers or devices Users use to access Services and the use of "pixel tags." A "cookie" is a small piece of data that BCI's website sends to a User to be stored in a User's web browser. If a User re-loads or re-accesses a BCI website or a page on a BCI website, a cookie may allow BCI to recognize the User's device as one that previously accessed the site or page. Cookies can be used by BCI to associate a User with its previous activity on BCI's website and with a User's preferences and other information. Users may set their browsers to refuse cookies or to notify Users when a cookie is being sent, but that may cause some website features or services not to function properly. An "anonymous identifier" is technology that can provide the same function as a cookie on some devices that do not support cookies. A "pixel tag" is a type of technology placed on a website or within an email for the purpose of tracking activity on websites, or when emails are opened or accessed; it is often used in combination with cookies.

How BCI Uses User Information.

BCI uses the information it collects from Users to help provide and improve the Services and to expand the type of Services BCI provides. For example, knowing what Services are used most frequently may assist BCI in allocating its resources to providing and improving its most popular Services. Knowing what types of Users access BCI's Services may assist BCI in marketing and making Services known and available to potential new Users.

BCI may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with other parties it works with. For example, BCI may share information with other companies, organizations, government agencies, or publicly to show trends about the use of Services and the type of data Users access through them. BCI will not share personally identifiable information outside of BCI or use it (i) in a manner that would identify any User to other Users or to the public unless a User expressly consents to such sharing or disclosure; or (ii) unless the such a disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, to enforce applicable Terms of Service, to address fraud, security or technical issues, or to protect the rights BCI, other Users, or the public and the disclosure is permitted by applicable law.

Information Security

BCI takes steps to help protect it and Users from unauthorized access by third parties to User information that BCI receives and collects. For example, BCI encrypts access to many of its Services to help prevent third-parties from intercepting or interfering with User's log-in information and use of Services. BCI also restricts access to User personal information to employees, contractors and agents who need access to process that information for BCI and who are subject to contractual confidentiality obligations. BCI also periodically reviews its data collection, storage, processing, and security practices to guard against unauthorized access to User information.


BCI may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time as the needs of BCI and Users change. All changes to this Privacy Policy will be posted on this page. If BCI makes changes to this Privacy Policy that it reasonably believes are significant, BCI will bring those changes to the attention of Users affected by the changes, including, for certain Services, through email and/or notification on log-in pages for affected Services.
