BHN Mobile App Privacy and Information Security Policy

Last Updated: 9/9/2016

Bio Huma Netics, Inc. (“BHN”, collectively “us”, “we”, “our”) is committed to safeguarding your online privacy with respect to the personally identifiable information that we may obtain from you through the BHN Mobile App (the “App”). Our Privacy and Information Security Policy (“Privacy Policy”) answers frequently asked questions about your online privacy, including what personally identifiable information we may obtain from you and how it will be used and protected. BHN may from time to time change this Privacy Policy, so please check back periodically.

WHAT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION DO WE OBTAIN FROM YOU? WHEN DO WE OBTAIN SUCH INFORMATION? 

If, upon using our App, your use is limited to browsing our informational content, we will not require that you provide us with any personally identifiable information. However, we may request personal information from you at other times. For example:

  1. If you enroll for a BHN user account through the App, we may ask that you provide us with certain personal information, including your name, e-mail address, and telephone number.
  2. If you post to our discussion forums, we may ask that you provide us with your name, e-mail address, and password.
  3. If you want to enter any promotions, contests, or similar sweepstakes sponsored by us or by one of our business partners, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, and other information as may be required by the rules of the specific contest.
  4. If you choose to participate in a customer survey conducted by us or by one of our business partners, we may ask for your name, e-mail address, and other information as may be required by the particular survey.
  5. If you report a problem or submit a customer review, we may ask that you provide your name, e-mail address, address, phone number, and other identifying information. Should you contact us for any reason other than to report a problem and/or submit a review, we may also keep a record and/or copy of your correspondence with us.

HOW DO WE PROTECT THE SECURITY AND QUALITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION? 

To protect the security and quality of your personal information, we use a third party software to maintain accurate, current and complete information as well as to protect your personal information against loss, misuse or alteration when it is under our control. This software encrypts and stores all sensitive information in a safe environment. Your personal information is also password protected so that access is limited to yourself and those with whom you share your password, BHN, as well as third party access facilitated by BHN with your prior permission.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?

Our primary use of your information is to administer, maintain, and improve your experience on our App generally, as well as provide you with customized, personalization services, and interactive communications.

  1. If you check the “opt-in” feature on our App, or if you do not uncheck a pre-checked “opt-in” box we may from time to time send you e-mails regarding our App and special promotions. Also, we occasionally may send you direct mail about products and/or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
  2. When you enter any promotions, contests, or sweepstakes sponsored by us or by one of our business partners, we may use your e-mail address to send you status updates.
  3. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer the services offered through our App. We also use your IP address to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information that we may share with our business partners, but only in the aggregate and only for internal use of BHN.
  4. We may research the demographics, interests, and behavior of our customers based on the information provided to us during membership registration, during promotions, contests, or sweepstakes, from our server log files, from cookies and from surveys. Our research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. We may share this aggregate data with business partners, but only in the aggregate and only for internal use of BHN.

CAN YOU “OPT-OUT” OF RECEIVING COMMUNICATIONS FROM BHN?

If you change your mind and decide that you no longer want to receive promotional e-mails and/or direct mailings, you may opt-out at any time by simply sending an e-mail request to app@humagro.com. Similarly, if you are not receiving our promotional e-mails and/or direct mailings and wish to receive these materials, you may opt-in at any time by simply sending an e-mail request to app@humagro.com.

DO WE SELL OR RENT YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

No. We do not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone. We may use the information for our own internal use and analytics, but we do not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to others.

WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE INFORMATION?

We generally will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission to do so or under some special circumstances described below:

  1. As noted previously, we may from time to time partner with other companies to offer co-branded services as well as promotions, contests, or sweepstakes. Any information that you provide in connection with the co-branded services or any jointly sponsored promotions, contests, or sweepstakes will become the joint property of BHN and its business partners. We may also disclose other personal information about you to our business partners, but only if we have obtained your permission to make the disclosure before data collection or before transferring the data.
  2. We may, from time to time, offer you the opportunity to receive materials or special offers from third parties. If you want to receive this information, we may (but only with your permission) share your name and e-mail address with them.
  3. Under confidentiality agreements, we may match user information with third party data. We also may disclose aggregate demographic and/or user information and statistics in order to describe our customer base to prospective partners and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
  4. We may disclose your personally identifiable information without your prior permission in special cases. For example, we may have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing intentional or unintentional injury or interference to the rights or property of BHN or any third party, including other customers. Also, we may disclose or access your personally identifiable information when we believe in good faith that law or regulation requires disclosure.

WHAT ARE COOKIES? HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

Cookies enable us to customize and personalize your experience on our App, including the products and promotions that are offered to you. Essentially, a cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and is stored on your computer/device’s hard drive. We may use cookies for several purposes in connection with the operation of our App as described below:

  1. We may use cookies to identify you and access your information stored on our computer/devices in order to deliver you a better and more personalized experience. For example, we may use cookies to tell you about products and services specific to your interests.
  2. Upon request, we may save your “user name” so that you do not have to re-enter it every time you visit our App. In providing you with this service, we use cookies.
  3. We may use cookies to estimate our customer base and customer usage patterns. Each browser accessing our App may use given a unique cookie that is then used to determine the extent of repeat visits and the customer activity during those visits. We may use the historical information to help target promotions based on customer interests and behavior, both specifically to individual customers and on an aggregate basis with respect to all customers.
  4. We also may use cookies to track your progress and number of entries in some promotions, contests, or sweepstakes, or through a meeting registration process. For example, when a promotion uses cookies, the information coded to the cookie indicates your progress through the promotion, and may be used to track entries, submissions and status of prize drawings.

Business partners that offer co-branded services and jointly-sponsored promotions, contests, or sweepstakes on our App, may use their own cookies. We have no control over those cookies, nor does this Privacy Policy cover how your personal information contained in those cookies may be used or protected. If you have any questions about the cookies of such third parties, or about the use of your personal information by such third parties, you should contact the site administrator or web-master of the third party site.

DO YOU HAVE CHOICES ABOUT COOKIES?

Yes, you have several choices with respect to cookies. You can modify your browser preferences to accept all cookies, to block certain cookies, or to reject all cookies. However, our App uses cookie-based authentication. Accordingly, if you choose to reject all cookies, you may not be able to log onto our App and/or use our services or participate in our promotions, contests, or sweepstakes.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR ONLINE PRIVACY?

It is important to remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on-line, your information can be collected and used by others. If you transmit or post personal information on-line that is accessible to others, you will not be able to control how that information is used by others. When we receive the transmitted information, we will use the procedures summarized in this Privacy Policy to ensure the integrity and security of that information in our systems. Unfortunately, notwithstanding any of the steps taken by us, it is not possible to guarantee the security and integrity of data transmitted over the Internet. Consequently, while we take the above-described reasonable steps to protect your personal information, we cannot and do not warrant the security or integrity of any information you transmit to us when registering for our App or otherwise. All such transmission of information is at your own risk. Moreover, though we are committed to having our App comply with this Privacy Policy, you are ultimately responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password and your personally identifiable information. If you are careless with your password, or you decide to share your password with third parties, you must be aware of the risk that such third parties will have access to all your personally identifiable information.
