     We want you to be aware of how we collect and handle information on our site.

    Information Gathering

    Bahamas Petroleum Company plc collects personal information such as name, company and e-mail address, when you knowingly provide it to us. Our web servers automatically collect statistical information about your visit such as pages visited and which browsers are used to visit our site.

    Contact Information

    If you contact us, we may keep a record of your correspondence or comments, including personally identifiable information (see below), in a file specific to you. We use this information to help us provide better service in the event you contact us again.

    Personally Identifiable Information

    This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. The personally identifiable information we collect when you use our site may include your name, mailing address, e-mail address, login names and passwords. Personal information you voluntarily supply to us is not shared with any third party (other than those third parties referred to below).

    Personally Identifiable Information and Third Parties

    We do not sell, share or disclose individually identifiable information obtained online about our visitors to anyone outside of Bahamas Petroleum Company plc, our subsidiary companies or affiliates, or any of our, or their, subcontractors. The exceptions to this rule are:

    • If you specifically authorise Bahamas Petroleum Company plc to share your information with another company; or
    • If required by law or regulation.

    The personally identifiable information that you provide to us may be accessed by (or given to) our staff working outside the UK and the third parties referred to above, some of whom may be located outside the European Economic Area. Countries outside the European Economic Area may not necessarily have adequate data protection laws.

    At times, we may utilise e-mail and your personal information to provide you with information that you have requested.

    Protection

    Bahamas Petroleum Company plc acknowledges your trust and is committed to protecting the information you provide us. Whilst we can not guarantee the security of your information at all times, in order to prevent unauthorised access, maintain accuracy, and ensure proper use of information, we have employed physical, electronic, and managerial processes to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Any information that you give us is protected by a password for added security. Within our site, your information is stored in password-protected, limited-access servers. Wherever possible, our servers reside behind a corporate firewall that maintains tight controls on any access to the system from both our internal network and the internet.

    Cookies

    A "cookie" is a small data file transferred by a web site to your computer's hard drive. We send cookies when you access our site, respond to online surveys or polls, or request information. Accepting the cookies used on our site does not give us access to your personally identifiable information, but we can use the cookies to identify your computer. The aggregate information collected permits us to analyse traffic patterns on our site. This can enable us over time to provide you with a better experience on our site by improving the content and making it easier to use. For example, cookies can allow you to enter your password only once on pages where a login is required. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually refuse cookies, or selectively accept certain cookies, by adjusting the preferences in your browser. If you turn off cookies, though, there may be some features of our site that will not be available to you and some web pages may not display properly.

    Parts of our site may contain links to third party websites for your convenience and information. When you access third party websites, even one that may contain our company logo or subsidiary logos, please note that we do not control the content of, and are not responsible for the privacy practices of, that site. We suggest that you carefully review the terms and conditions of use, and privacy policies, of each site that you visit. This Online Privacy Statement does not cover the information practices of those websites linked to from our site. Other websites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information.
