Effective September 1, 2003
Bossen Implement Inc. (BI) is committed to protecting your privacy while you are visiting our Site.
In order to provide the best in customer service, we may ask you to share "personal information" -- information unique to you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number. First and foremost, we want you to understand our policy regarding the collection and use of your personal information.
The Personal Information Collected
You may visit our Site or call our staff to search for great deals and unique toys without providing us with any personal information.
How Personal Information Is Used
In order to complete a purchase, you will be asked to share with us information required to complete the transaction successfully, such as billing and shipping addresses, credit card number and expiration date, etc.
Personal Interests Information
At times BI will ask you for personal information regarding the interests that you have in the farm toy market. This may include information about scale, OEM and other collector information that interests or applies to you so that we may inform you of appropriate opportunities and special offers as well as new product introductions.
When you make purchases on our Site, become a member, and/or subscribe to our e-mails, we use your personal information in the following ways:
What We Won't Do With Personal Information
- When you make purchases, your personal information will be shared with all others who need to help facilitate the transaction (for example, credit card authorization companies, or private consigners of toys).
- As a member, from time to time, you may receive communications from us, including: (i) specific information we want to communicate to you regarding special offers or new product information that we feel you might be interested in based on the information you may have supplied or past purchase history, or (ii) to contact you with information regarding a transaction you have initiated with us.
- In the event that our Company or this Site or certain of our assets are acquired, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets.
BI will not sell or rent your personal information to any third parties. Nor will any person or organization that deals with us use the information for their own uses or sell or make the information available to others.
All sellers agree to keep the privacy of their buyers confidential and not to share their names or personal information with any other persons or organizations. Sellers also agree to not have further direct contact with buyers or solicit any further sales or do business from these buyers directly, or to make further special or additional offers.
Because security is important to us, we exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your personal information before it is transferred across the Internet from your personal computer to our secure servers. We use industry-standard, secure-socket-layer (SSL) technology, which is utilized by most popular browsers, including Netscape and Microsoft Explorer, to encrypt (or convert into code) your personal information before it is transferred across the Internet. To further safeguard your most sensitive credit card information, we transfer such information across the Internet in an encrypted format and then store such information in our secure database.
We will permit only authorized employees, who are trained in the proper handling of personal data, to access your personal information.
To further protect your personal information, we have a security system that includes: world-class firewall technologies; logical network segmentation, allowing restricted access to stored profile information; and logical and physical security restrictions to our databases and systems.
Other, Non-Personal Information Collected
Like many other Internet sites, we automatically collect non-personal information regarding our visitors, such as software client information (for example, IP addresses, browser versions and operating systems) and aggregate information (for example, number of pages accessed) in order to analyze Web traffic and usage trends. Information of this nature does not pertain to your specific identity and is not associated with your personal information.
BI's website does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use BI's website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
