GENERAL STATEMENT ON PRIVACY, PERSONAL DATA AND COMMUNICATIONS
When you visit the Website, use the App, or communicate with Bovina Valley via email, you are communicating electronically. You consent to receive communications from Bovina Valley electronically. Bovina Valley will communicate with you by email or by posting notifications on the Website and/or the App. You understand and agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that Bovina Valley provides electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
USER PROVIDED INFORMATION
Bovina Valley does not collect any personal information about individuals – such as names and postal codes, home addresses and email addresses – except when such information is knowingly provided to Bovina Valley. Personal information might be obtained from online transactions such as class/series purchases, retail purchases and/or class registrations. Additionally, personal information may be transmitted as part of a form submission or in connection with other activities or services made available on the Website. Any personal identification information retrieved by Bovina Valley must be voluntarily submitted by the user.
Bovina Valley may use the information provided to contact you with important information, required notices and marketing promotions.
AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED INFORMATION
The Website collects some anonymous information about users automatically when individuals request pages through a browser. This information is used to keep track of the shopping cart and to help us monitor how individuals use the Website, which allows Bovina Valley to provide an optimal experience and better service throughout the online offerings. The information collected automatically by the server does not contain anything that can identify individuals personally, such as an email or home address.
Bovina Valley makes every effort to ensure that all of the transactions that occur on the Website and App are secure. All credit card numbers and transactions are encrypted using 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the Website. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
WHAT IS A SECURE CONNECTION?
When a secure connection is established between your browser and a website, any data that is transferred over the connection will be encrypted to prevent it from being viewed by a third party. SSL encryption makes it very difficult for anyone to intercept or decode messages exchanged over this type of secure connection.
Browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari display an image of a locked padlock on their status bar when connected to a secure site. Google Chrome shows a green locked padlock on the far left side of the status bar when there is a secure SSL connection. Firefox colors the address bar yellow when connected to a secure site. Secure transactions are also indicated when the prefix in the location bar of your browser switches from http:// or https://. The additional ‘s’ stands for ‘secure’ and indicates a secure connection to the Bovina Valley website. If you do not see this padlock, if it is unlocked, or if the protocol in the location bar is not listed as https://, then any data exchanged with the website is potentially visible to others.
Depending on your browser, you may be able to view authentication information about a secure page by double-clicking on the padlock icon in the status bar. For more information on how your software establishes a secure connection, see the help files for your particular browser.
