As we operate internationally, and our computer systems are currently based in the United States, your personal data will be processed by us in the U.S. where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union.

This information is used solely by BCC or other companies who are involved in the operation of the Website.BCC does not sell, share or disclose this information to third parties.

By showing how and when guests use the site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. If you accept the first tracking cookie from bangcandycompany.com, you won’t be offered as many afterwards.
MANAGING YOUR INFORMATION
ABOUT IP ADDRESSES
BCC collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers, if applicable. An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the web. Web servers—the big computers that “serve” up web pages—automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When guests request pages from bangcandycompany.com, our servers log their IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us.
BCC employs reasonable measures to maintain all personally identifiable information provided by you on computer servers in a controlled and secured environment in an effort to hinder unauthorized access, loss, alteration, use or disclosure of such information. However, the nature of the Internet is such that information may be transmitted over networks without appropriate security measures and may be accessed, deleted, altered, used or disclosed by unauthorized persons.
MODIFICATIONS TO THIS POLICY
BCC may make modifications or amendments to this policy from time to time. In the event that such changes alter how BCC gathers, processes, uses or discloses your personally identifiable information, BCC will post such changes on our site.
