We consistently strive to put our best efforts towards achieving both of these objectives.

Web Site Traffic and Analysis

We gather and analyze information from our visitors’ routine use of the Web site. We use this information to monitor what areas of the site are most active, and to help focus our continuing development efforts. Only generalized, aggregate information is shared within BackOffice Associates; an individual user’s traffic patterns are strictly confidential.

Some parts of the Web site require users to provide the information in the registration screens for reasons specified and as provided in the user registration agreement. This information is essential to service our visitors’ needs properly. As greater functionality is added to the Web site, we will continue to strive to develop mechanisms and policies that best address participants’ preferences related to information collection and use.

Collection of Information using “Cookies”

We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain any personal information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data from your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. BackOffice Associates uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). Our advertising system may also deliver a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you’ve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in message boards, forums, polling and surveys.

Links to Third Party Sites and Services (if applicable)

In addition, BackOffice Associates may include links on the Web site to third parties’ own web sites. While we choose carefully those parties with whom we link, users of our Web site should note that the privacy policy for any third party web site might differ from BackOffice Associates.

BackOffice Associates is concerned with the security of the personal data we collect and has put in place measures to prevent unauthorized access to that information. Once stored, personal data is protected through various security measures. These measures include both policies relating to access to information and technological elements such as firewalls, etc. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information.
