Brownsville Medical Center Applied Behavioral Analysis (“BMCAPA”) is committed to providing you with a website experience that respects and protects your personal privacy choices and concerns. The BMCAPA website located at www.brownsvilleaba.com (the “Website”) is designed to provide you with useful information about us and our services and with employment opportunities. The Website does not promote or sell products of any kind; we do hope, however, that the information we provide on the Website encourages you to use or join our organization as a client or employee.
Information We Gather. In an effort to provide the Website visitors with the most useful information, we collect a limited amount of information about visits to the Website, including the number of visits to the Website, the date and time of day of these visits, and the pages visited. This information helps us to evaluate the effectiveness of the Website, improve the information available to Website visitors and improve Website performance. In addition, if you elect to register with the Website to receive newsletters, event information and/or other BMCAPA news and information, you will be required to provide us your first and last name, home phone number, a home or other physical address, and an email address, and/or other contact information, whether work or home.
Personal Information Collected Automatically. Our website tracking program does not provide us with personal information about the Website visitors; however, as is true of most websites, we gather certain information about visitors to the Website and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, on an aggregate, anonymous basis without identifying individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Website, to track users’ movements around the Website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically data to personally identifiable information, except, in rare instances, we reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten the Website, BMCAPA or others. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate, anonymous information to our partners about how our users, collectively, use the Website. Again, we never disclose aggregate, anonymous information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
Email Security. Messages that you send to us by email (via the Contact Us links on the Website pages) may not be secure. If you choose to send any confidential personal information to us via email, you accept the risk that a third party may intercept and use this information.
Web Beacons and Other Mechanisms. There are other mechanisms we may use (such as web beacons and tags) that enable us to obtain certain Website usage information. When we send you emails, we may include a web beacon to allow us to determine the number of people who open our emails. When you click on a link in an email, we may record this individual response to allow us to customize our offerings to you. Web beacons collect only limited information, such as a time and date of a page being viewed, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides (the URL). Web beacons can be refused when delivered via email. If you do not wish to receive web beacons via email, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML (select Text only) emails via your email software.
Employment Inquiries. The Website has an employment page for interested job seekers. We provide you the option of putting your resume in our database and applying to specific job openings with BMCAPA. The functionality associated with this part of the Website requests users’ contact information (such as email address) and personal information (such as work histories and academic achievements). The user’s contact and personal information is used to contact the user in connection with potential job opportunities. This information may be retained by BMCAPA for any period of time, subject to applicable law.
A Special Note about Children. The Website is not designed or intended for use by children under 13. If you are under 18, you should access or use the Website only with involvement of a parent or guardian. Children under 13 may not submit any personal information to us, and if we discover that we have inadvertently gathered any such information from a child under 13, we will take appropriate steps to delete it. We comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (which is available at http://www.ftc.gov/ogc/coppa1.htm) and will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from, anyone under 13.
