Privacy policy

Your privacy on the Internet is of utmost importance to ‘Bonjour Techies.’ This privacy statement describes policy of Bonjour Techies concerning the gathering and sharing of visitors’ information through the Bonjour Techies web site.  You should note that through this site you may reach or be directed to other sites that relate to Bonjour Techies; all these sites have their own privacy statements which are similar to this one but may vary slightly.  By visiting the Bonjour Techies website you are accepting the practices described in this policy.

What information does Bonjour Techies collect?

Normal website usage

In general, you can browse the Bonjour Techies site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.  The only information that gets gathered during general browsing is from standard server logs.  These include the IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system, and information such as the web site that referred you to us, the files you downloaded, the pages you visit, and the dates/times of those visits.

Collection of personally identifiable information

If you register for a newsletter, log on to Bonjour Techies , order a book or other merchandise, request information, provide feedback, apply for a job, join a discussion group or join an electronic mailing list, you will be asked to provide personal information such as your name, postal address and e-mail address.  This information is collected only with your knowledge and permission, and is kept in various Bonjour Techies databases.  If you are purchasing something on the web, you may be asked to provide your credit card details.

For Bonjour Techies, registering or supplying personal information sets a cookie*. By setting this cookie, Bonjour Techies will remember your details the next time you visit, so you don’t have to re-enter the information.  This helps us to provide you with a better service.

Joining electronic discussion groups may mean that other participants of the discussion group (including non- Bonjour Techies employees) will see personal information that you have volunteered.  For open discussion groups, this information will be public.

Special note about information from children

Several sections in the Bonjour Techies domain are focused on children. Some of these require user-specific information to be provided to Bonjour Techies.  We ask for the minimum amount of personal information in this case.

These parts of the Bonjour Techies site are for children and authorized adults only and unauthorized adults are not to participate in these parts of the Bonjour Techies site.  (Obtaining user information helps us in that regard if needed.)

Children should make sure their parents, or the adults who are caring for them, know they are participating in the Bonjour Techies sites and are providing this limited user information.
