OTHER INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Cookies are used within this site. A "cookie" is a small file that we save on your computer’s hard drive that contains non-personal information. Our cookies help to give you faster access to pages you have already visited, allow you to personalize your pages, and help you to participate in activities or events on the site. They also assist us in customizing our offerings to you. If you leave the site and then return, cookies will tell us what things you have already collected so that you do not have to start all over again. Cookies store multi-page data entry until data is submitted to a database (i.e., in connection with an extensive poll or survey), and prevent further participation in a poll or survey by a particular browser. At sites that offer shopping, cookies keep track of items in your shopping cart. Cookies do not contain any personal information about a specific user, and we do not use cookies or other non-consensual methods to take personally identifiable or online contact information about you off of your computer. We do not use cookies for direct marketing or promotional purposes, and cookies are not used at this site to collect information specifically about you for sharing with third parties. We also use other technology, called clear GIFs, to provide us with other important anonymous information, such as when an e-mail has been opened.

SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We want to be very clear: We do not obtain personal information about you at this site other than that which you choose to provide, and we will not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose the personal information you provide us to anyone outside of BCMERCHHUT.com or its advertising and promotional agencies and consultants for their commercial marketing purposes, except in those specific instances where you expressly give us permission to do so. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to collect, use, and disclose any information, including but not limited to, personally identifiable information, we may deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any law, regulation, legal request, or government request. Without assuming any obligation to do so, we also reserve the right to collect and share any information we deem necessary to investigate or take action in connection with suspected fraud, illegal activities, possible harm to persons or property, or as otherwise required or permitted by law.
