Under no circumstance will BEIL disclose or share your personal information with any third party unless you have given express permission.

BEIL may also use and disclose your Personal Information when you have been involved in violations of our Terms of Site. These cases may involve law enforcement personnel to detect and prevent unlawful access to your Personal Information or to investigate activities that threaten the integrity of the Service and our network.

BEIL may use your Personal Information as required by courts or administrative agencies in connection with a sale, merger, or reorganisation of the business. Those parties are bound by strict contractual provisions with our Service and only have access to Personal Information needed to perform their job functions, and may not use it for other purposes. They will process the Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Delete the cookies from the browser cache and Temporary Internet Files after leaving the Website;

  1. Third-party Interactions on the Website

BEIL’s Website(s) may allow third parties to provide products and services directly to BEIL customers. Such relationships are often designated with a ‘Provided By’ or ‘Powered By’ company logo or other similarly worded designation. When processing or performing the named function that party will collect your information and share Personal Information with BEIL. You may review the privacy practices of the third party either by clicking the link on the bottom of the page or by clicking on the ‘Provided by Company’ logo, which will take you to their Website.

Software that is downloaded or installed from the BEIL Website may be provided by a third-party developer / license that requires Personal Information to enrol. If the product is provided by a third-party a link will be provided to the organisation’s Website where the Privacy Policy and Terms of Service can be examined. Activating the link or downloading the software grants BEIL permission to share the required Personal Information with the third-party Website and accepts that BEIL is not responsible for the conduct, data policies or security of the third-party. All offers, links, promotions and services that advertise a third-party are separate and distinct from BEIL Website(s) and excluded from our policies that protect consumers.

Partners, promotions and other third-party content is validated against standards and conditions but it always possible that something slips through checks and balances. If any partner or content is discovered to be fraudulent or employ questionable conduct we will remove their advertisements, product or service from the Website. Report all scams or abuses to privacy@binatoneglobal.com

  1. Security of Personal Information

BEIL has invested and deployed a wide variety of technology and security features to make reasonable efforts to ensure the privacy of information on its network. Operations guidelines ensure privacy is safeguarded at every level of our organisation.

Suspicion of a security breach or compromise of your personal information should be immediately reported to Customer Services to minimise damage and risk. The agent will assist with securing the account and investigating the extent of the breach. Consumer Protection Law protects any victim of fraud from charges or penalties if the activity is quickly reported and full cooperation is provided to the Vendor or Service Provider to investigate.

A breach that is not reported within 24 hours of detection can increase risk to the platform and other third-parties. This is a violation of the Terms of Site and it will result in immediate suspension of the ‘account’ and may lead to legal action from BEIL or from third-party Partners if the conduct is found to be irresponsible.

  1. Security of Digital Transmissions

Key communications with the data centre are encrypted in transit using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with Transport Layer Security (TLS) to restrict third-party eavesdropping to the Service. This mechanism will protect the transmission of Personal Information as it travels to our infrastructure, where it is protected by our security. The browser will display a lock icon to validate the use of SSL on secure parts of the site where forms collect data, payments are processed and Personal Information is handled or updated.

BEIL uses industry standard browser encryption with a bit-strength of 128-bit or 256-bit to secure communications.

Personal Information which you voluntarily include and transmit through publicly accessible forums (i.e., chat rooms, blogs, instant messaging) may be viewed and used by anyone with access to such forums. BEIL assumes no responsibility for anything that is shared from the Service to one of these mediums.

  1. Personal Information

Personal Information about you is available at your request and can be changed at your request. All necessary steps must be taken to validate your identity before the request is fulfilled. Personal Information will be requested and compared to the records the Service has on file to the satisfaction of the BEIL representative. Accounts that have been compromised in the past may require multiple validation tests to satisfy the requirement. This is for your protection and cooperation is expected.

You are responsible for ensuring that the information the Service has on file for you is accurate at all times.

  1. Third-Party Websites and Services

Our Service may contain links to other Websites and services not maintained by BEIL. In addition, other Website(s) and services may also reference or link to BEIL.
