We are not responsible for the content or practices of web sites operated by companies outside of BIAAS that may be linked to this website. You should not assume that their privacy policies or practices are the same as those followed by our company. Visitors to any such web sites should refer to their respective privacy policies and practices.
We may employ third party companies to provide customer support, perform Website-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Website’s features) or to assist us in analysing how our Service is used.

Security of Information
We are committed to the security of your Personal Information. We follow widely accepted industry security standards to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use such Personal Information. Despite many advances in information security technology and procedures, however, no commercially deployed method of information transfer over the Internet or electronic data storage is known to be 100% secure. As a result, while we do strive to use modern and commercially reasonable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of that information during its transmission or its storage in our systems.
A “cookie” is a small text file that an Internet Service can place on your computer’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make using many internet services easier by, among other things, saving your passwords and preferences for you, keeping track of your shopping cart when you visit an online store or other similar purposes, and to help identify you whenever you return to a website, so you do not need to re-enter your identification information. Most Internet browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. However, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to alert you when a cookie is being sent (note: you may need to consult your browser’s “Help” area for instructions on how to do that).
