Other Information We Collect Automatically When You are Online

Personal Data 

Personal data is collected when users provide personal information  that is not publically available to BAFOL.  For example, when you register through the Site and donating funds. The personal  information that you provide must be true, accurate and complete and all  registration details (where applicable) must contain your real name,  address and other requested details.  Aggregated information, such as information on traffic patterns  within the Site, is collected by BAFOL through various methods:

IP Addresses: 

We collect IP addresses through the  Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your  computer whenever you're surfing the web. Web servers, the computers  that "serve up" web pages, automatically identify your computer by its  IP address, and when you request a page from the Site, our servers log  your IP address. The Site does not link IP addresses to anything  personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, you  will remain anonymous to us.

Use of Cookies:  

BAFOL may use cookies and  other tracking technologies (including browser cookies, pixels, beacons,  and Adobe Flash technology including cookies), which are comprised of  small bits of data that often include an anonymous unique identifier.  A  cookie is a small data file that most major web sites write to your  hard drive for record keeping purposes when you visit them. Cookies  allow us to measure activity on the Site and to improve your user experience and viewing  preferences. Cookies are used by BAFOL to measure activity on  the Site and make improvements and updates based on which areas are popular and which are not. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you'd prefer,  you can set yours to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are  being sent. However, it is possible that some parts of the Site will not  function properly if you do so.

We will not knowingly market to or collect personally identifiable information from children under age 13.


We use the Personal Information we collect from and about you for the  purposes set forth below. Please note that we may use and disclose  Other Information for any purpose, except where we are required to do  otherwise under applicable law. If we are required to treat Other  Information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we may  use and disclose it for all the purposes for which we use and disclose  Personal Information.

To improve the quality of our services, we may combine the Personal  and Other Information we collect with information that you provide to us  in connection with us.
