Information about your computer hardware and software is automatically collected by the ORAT website, which include: your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring addresses. This information is used by the ORAT website to maintain the quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the ORAT website. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through the ORAT website public message boards, this information will be collected and used by others for registration purposes.

BAC may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. The ORAT website does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. The ORAT website may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. The ORAT website may also share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you emails or SMS messages or provide customer support. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to the ORAT website, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information. The ORAT website does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent. The ORAT website keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within the ORAT website to determine what the most popular ORAT website services are. This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within the ORAT website to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. The ORAT website will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the ORAT website or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the ORAT website; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the ORAT website, or the public.
