Privacy Policy

  1. What This Privacy Policy Covers

    This policy addresses what Personal Information (defined below) is and how BikeMinds uses Personal Information that BikeMinds collects from this Website and may otherwise receive from you. "Personal Information" is information about you that is personally identifiable (such as your name, physical address, email address, phone number, etc.).

  2. Information Collection and Use

    BikeMinds does not rent, sell, or share Personal Information about you with other people or companies except to provide or offer services you have requested, when BikeMinds has your permission, or under the following circumstances: (i) BikeMinds responds to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims; (ii) BikeMinds believes it is necessary to share information, including Personal Information, in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the BikeMInds' policies or these Terms, or as otherwise required by law; (iii) BikeMinds outsources certain services or functions related to this Website and the disclosure of your Personal Information is necessary for BikeMinds to provide the services related to this Website; or (iv) BikeMinds transfers your Personal Information to its successor in interest or assignee related to the sale of its business or this Website or a merger or other transaction.

  3. Confidentiality and Security
    1. BikeMinds uses what it believes to be commercially reasonable protections to safeguard your Personal Information. These measures are intended to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control; however, BikeMinds cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent parties (such as "hackers" or other bad actors) from illegally obtaining or misusing Personal Information. Even the largest financial institutions and governments are successfully hacked from time to time.
    2. Although BikeMinds takes reasonable security measures to protect your Personal Information, BikeMinds must interact with third-party servers and systems (for example, to support your requests, provide services, and process your transactions). BikeMinds strives to work with only reputable third-party vendors to provide those services, yet BikeMinds is not responsible for any acts or omissions of third-party vendors.
  4. Registration and Password.

    To access some of the content, information, and services at the Website, you may be required to register by providing certain information and creating a user name and password to access (or log in). You may only have one user name at any one time. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name and password. You shall be responsible for all uses of your user name(s) and password(s). You agree to immediately notify BikeMinds of any unauthorized use of your user name(s) and/or password(s).

  5. Cookies; Pixel Tracking
    1. When you browse the Website, a temporary cookie is placed on your computer that helps BikeMinds collect information to help us better understand our visitors’ interests and to better serve you. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser’s software on your computer's hard drive or temporarily in your computer's memory. The use of Cookies is an industry standard and it enhances the user experience and your access to information on our Website. Cookies are used on most major web sites. Cookies enable BikeMinds to recognize you and personalize your viewing experience on the Website. BikeMinds uses Cookies for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to, to recognize user access (or logon) privileges to the Website (such as to store user names and other information supplied at registration), track Website usage and traffic patterns, provide information and advertisements for goods or services that we think may interest you based on your interest in and use of the Website, and track or estimate the number of users who visit and use the Website. Although most web browsers are initially set up to accept Cookies, you may be able to decline the placement of a Cookie on your hard drive by using the appropriate feature(s) of your web browser software (if available) to delete the Cookie. Please note, however, that certain areas or features of the Website will not function properly if your web browser does not accept Cookies.
    2. In addition to using Cookies, the Website may employ "pixel tracking", a common process which may be used in connection with advertisements on other sites. Pixel tracking involves the use of pixel tags that are not visible to the user and consist of a few lines of computer code. Pixel tracking measures the effectiveness of advertisements and compiles aggregate and specific usage statistics. A "pixel tag" is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of websites that is used to track an individual user's activity. We may access these pixel tags to identify activity and interests that may allow us to better match our goods, services, and other offers with your interests and needs. For example, if you visit our Website from an advertisement on another website, the pixel tag will allow the advertiser to track that its advertisement brought you to the Website. If you visit our Website, and we link you to another website, we may also be able to determine that you were sent to and/or transacted with a third-party website. This data is collected for use in our marketing and research.
