BITS solves customer business issues through independent and innovative solutions by leveraging focused architectures, tailored professional services and a blend of financial options.
What personal information does BITS collect and why?
The personal information that we may collect about you broadly falls into the following categories:
- Information that you provide voluntarily
Certain parts of our Website may ask you to provide personal information voluntarily: for example, we may ask you to provide your contact details in order to subscribe to marketing communications from us, register for a BITS event or submit inquiries to us. When you apply for a job with us we will ask you for additional information such as your work history and educational background. The personal information that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point we ask you to provide your personal information.
- Information that we collect automatically
When you visit our Website, we may collect certain information automatically from your device. Specifically, the information we collect automatically may include information like your IP address, device type, unique device identification numbers, browser-type, broad geographic location [e.g. country or city-level location] and other technical information. We may also collect information about how your device has interacted with our Website, including the pages accessed and links clicked. Collecting this information enables us to better understand the visitors who come to our Website, where they come from, and what content on our Website is of interest to them. We use this information for our internal analytics purposes and to improve the quality and relevance of our Website to our visitors. Some of this information may be collected using cookies and similar tracking technology, as explained further under the heading "What cookies does BITS use?" below. We will normally collect personal information from you only [i] where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, [ii] where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights, or [iii] where we have your consent to do so. In order to carry out contracts, BITS has collected and disclosed personal information such as name, job title, phone number, email address and IP address of companies with which it enters into contracts for performance of services. BITS may process personal information to comply with a legal obligation or in order for us to investigate, exercise or defend a legal claim. If you have questions about our use of your personal information, please contact us below under "How do I contact BITS?"
What Cookies does BITS use?
How long does BITS keep my data for?
In general, we expect to keep your personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was obtained. Once we have determined that we no longer need to hold your personal information, we will delete it from our systems. Please note that in certain circumstances, we may hold your personal information for a longer period, for example, if we believe in good faith that the law or a relevant regulator may reasonably in our view expect or require us to preserve your personal information. When we delete personal information, it will be removed from our active database, but it may remain in archives where it is not practical or possible to delete it.
