This section explains what “cookies” are and how this website uses cookies and other tracking technologies to improve this site and deliver a better, and more personalized, service. Our Cookie Policy applies to all users of this website. By continuing to browse the site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies and other tracking technologies.  What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. These text files can be read by these websites and help to identify you when you return to a website. Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer when you have gone offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to block and delete cookies, please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org/.

  • What sorts of Cookies are there?
    • Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential to the functioning of a site, enabling you to move around the site and allowing the site to provide the services that you ask for. For example, a strictly necessary cookie might be used to log into secure areas of a site or to recognize the region you are in, thereby allowing the site operator to tailor the site accordingly. Strictly necessary cookies do not gather any information that could be used for marketing purposes and they do not retain information beyond the end of your visit.
    • Analytical/performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website. They allow the site operator to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it. This helps the site operator to improve the way the website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore cannot be used to identify individual visitors. The information is only used to improve how a website works.
    • Functionality cookies. These cookies allow a website to remember choices that a user makes and provide enhanced, more personalized features. For example, such cookies enable you to stay signed into the website and recognize you when you arrive. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track browsing activity on other websites.
    • Targeting cookies. These cookies record users' visits to a website, the pages they have visited and the links they have followed. They are also used to ensure that users are presented with adverts, which are relevant to their interests, to limit the number of times a particular advert is displayed and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. The information is often shared with other organizations, such as advertisers.
  • Managing Cookies: Enabling and Disabling
    • You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when websites set or access cookies. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of this website or the Services may become inaccessible or not function properly.

You can also manually delete previously stored cookies at any time.
    • Please note that cookie-based opt-outs are not effective on mobile applications. However, on many mobile devices, application users may opt out of certain mobile ads via their device settings.
  • What Cookies and other technologies do we use?
    • We use cookies and similar technologies (such as action tags, also known as beacons, or pixels tags) for a number of purposes, including to remember preferences, track conversions, conduct marketing and promotional efforts, analyze site traffic and trends, and generally understand the online behaviors and interests of people who interact with our Service.
    • We may also use third-party advertising companies to serve advertisements on our behalf. These companies may use a cookie or an action tag to tailor the advertisements you see on this website and other sites, to track your response to their advertisement, to determine whether advertising has been served and to measure the effectiveness of their advertising.
    • We use third-party analytics service providers to assist us in collecting and understanding website usage information. We use information from these services to help us improve our website and the services we provide to our users. We may also utilize Google Analytics for certain web analytics. You can opt-out of your website usage data being included in our Google Analytics reports by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
  1. Sharing

We may share information about you with the following third parties:

  • Service providers: We may share your personal data as necessary for any third party to provide services associated with the Service, including to provide payment services, measurement and analytic services. These third parties (and any subcontractors) are subject to strict data processing terms and conditions and are prohibited from utilizing, sharing or retaining your personal data for any purpose other than as they have been specifically contracted for (or without your consent).
  • Advertisers: We may allow advertisers and associated third parties to collect and use information they need to confirm that their ads are properly served and to measure the success of their campaigns on websites and apps. These advertising partners may use this information (and similar information collected from other websites) for purposes of delivering targeted advertisements to you when you visit non-BKFC related websites within their networks. This practice is commonly referred to as “interest-based advertising” or “online behavioral advertising”. If you prefer that we do not share your personal data with third-party advertising partners, you may opt-out of such sharing at no cost by following the instructions in Section 7 below.
  • Business Partners and Affiliates. We may disclose your personal data to our business partners and affiliates with whom we have contracted to provide you with products or services that may be of interest to you. For example, your personal information may be shared with business partners with whom we jointly offer products and services. We require our business partners and affiliates to agree in writing to maintain the confidentiality and security of the personal data they obtain on our behalf.
  • Corporate Affiliates: We may share information with our corporate affiliates, parents and/or subsidiaries.
  • Others With Your Consent: We may ask for your explicit consent to share certain information with third parties.

We may also share information about you in the following contexts:

  • Pursuant to an investigation: We may investigate and disclose information from or about you if we have a good faith belief that such investigation or disclosure (a) is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us; (b) is helpful to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service; or (c) protects our rights, reputation, property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.
  • Pursuant to a business transfer:We may share information from or about you with our parent companies, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control, in which case we will require them to honor this Privacy Policy. If another company acquires BKFC or all or substantially all of our assets, that company will possess the same information, and will assume the rights and obligations with respect to that information as described in this Privacy Policy.
  • As Anonymized Data: We frequently aggregate personal data in a way that makes it impracticable to use that data to identify a particular person; we also sometimes maintain individual data records with personal identifiers removed, and maintain in a manner in which it is impracticable to relink it to any particular individual. In this Privacy Policy, we refer to such data as “Anonymized Data” and do not consider it to be personal data. We may use Anonymized Data in order to create statistical information regarding the Service and its use, which we may then share with third parties.
  1. “Do Not Track” Signals

Please note that your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online services you visit. The Service does not alter its practices when it receives a “Do Not Track” from a visitor’s browser.

The time-period for which we keep information varies according to the information’s use. In some cases, there are legal requirements to keep data for a minimum period.
