We respect your privacy. Our business is based on trust and value. We appreciate your visiting our website and otherwise contacting us.
Visitor domains: Our web server automatically recognizes if a visitor enters our site directly or from a search engine, directory, or affiliate, but not your personal e-mail address or computer. This information helps track usage statistics for the site, but does not identify you individually. It is limited to aggregate information about pages on our site actually viewed. We use these statistics and feed-back to make improvements to our website. We invite and appreciate anonymous feed-back too, and quick questions, how you heard of BAS, or visitor participation in simple surveys from time to time.
When you contact BAS or purchase: If you contact us or purchase, we safeguard your potentially-sensitive information (name, billing address, shipping address, phone number, e-mail address and credit card details) against loss or unauthorized use. We also provide the usual alternative means of transacting business with us, if you prefer. Dealers and consultants frequently place orders on behalf of clients. All emailed or faxed Order/Registration Forms or online transactions are safeguarded whether stored on electronic or paper media. We do not disclose information on individuals obtained in any manner to anyone outside our firm, except if required by law.
When we ship: Of course, we use information you provide on proposals, to ship your order to you, charge your credit card, or otherwise invoice. We request your e-mail address and phone number in order to contact you if any questions arise regarding your order. This information is provided only to third parties that participate in processing your order, such as our couriers (FedEx, UPS) and our credit card processing companies.
Opting in: We also collect e-mail addresses and names through voluntary testimonials, newsletter subscriptions and/or Contact-Us screens. This information is solely for our use to contact our clients, associates, affiliates, and subscribers as-needed or for marketing purposes.
Opting out: Individuals and organizations who wish not to be contacted or to un-subscribe from our bulletins or other outreaches, may easily opt out of future communications by calling us or using the Contact Us page on this website and simply checking the Opt-Out category. Please tell us what you’re opting out of – the more specific, the better. This is not a scam to confirm your email address or whatever, it’s a specific request that we attend to as we would a request from any one of our clients.
Confidentiality: Under support and project agreements, we often gain visibility of client operations and sensitive payroll and HR data. This is kept confidential and used by our specialists at client request. We take our general responsibilities and reputation seriously in this relatively tight-knit community. We also routinely contact clients and affiliates regarding updates and developments that we believe could impact their operations. This is often on an old-fashioned, first-name basis – far from a mass mailing or spam. If you are or become a client, we hope you would want to hear from us. 2018 is our thirty-fourth year in business, based on these policies.
Thank You: Thank you to our community of clients and staff, affiliates, supporters, and other associates!
