1. Information SBS collects from you
Active Information Collection:
Like many other websites, we actively collect information from users — such as by inviting you to sign up for our email list, or potentially by asking specific questions through the comment submission, registration and other features, and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via email.
Some of the information you submit may be personally identifiable — that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, business name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.
When you visit the website, we will not collect any personally identifiable or other sensitive information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily.
SBS does not have control over the privacy policies applied by any other party to whom you may disclose information. Third party sites that are linked to from the website, are not under our control and we are not responsible for their content or privacy policies.
Passive Information Collection:
This site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and internet tags. Most internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. However, certain features of this site might not work without cookies.
We passively collect information to understand what areas of the website are most popular, which areas may require improvement and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve the website. SBS does not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information.
2. How SBS uses your information
Your personal information may be used to enhance the operation of the website and allow you to use all of its features.
Your contact information will be used for the purposes for which you supplied it to us (e.g., registering for an email newsletter), to send you related notices or materials and to respond to your comments or requests for information. If you send comments to us or request information from us, we may ask you questions in an effort to tailor our response to your situation. It’s possible that we may also enhance or merge personally identifiable information with data obtained from third parties for the same purpose.
SBS will never sell your personally identifiable information to any outside organization! We may disclose your personal information to the reputable vendors that assist us in processing information or delivering materials or services. These vendors are instructed not to use the information for any other purpose. SBS does not otherwise distribute to third parties your personally identifiable information. SBS, however, will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties. SBS may provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, online traffic patterns and related information to reputable third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. SBS also will disclose any information that it is required to disclose by law or by an appropriate government authority.

4. How SBS protects your information
We have implemented both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of all sensitive information under our control and protect it against loss, misuse and unauthorized alteration. In addition, our electronic files are backed up for redundancy and designed to be accessible only by authorized individuals.
This site contains links to other websites operated by third parties that may be of interest to you. We can’t control these third party sites, which may collect personal information from you.
5. What SBS does about children visiting the website
Obviously, this website is neither very useful to, nor intended for, children under the age of 13! We will not knowingly collect information from site visitors in this age group. As parents ourselves, we encourage other parents to talk with their children about their use of the internet and the information they disclose online. In the unlikely event that you, as a parent or guardian, learn that your child has provided us with personally identifiable information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you would like this information to be deleted from our records.
