About IP Addresses
BMWiForum.BMWUSA.com collects IP addresses when submitting posts to the bulletin board and for the purposes of system administration. An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re connected to a network or connected to the Internet. When guests request pages from BMWiForum.BMWUSA.com, our web servers log the guests’ IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us unless issues of security arise in which IP addresses may be turned over to local, state and national authorities.
Links to Other Sites
Users should be aware that when they are on the BMWiForum.BMWUSA.com website they could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from BMWiForum.BMWUSA.com that take users outside our service. For example, if you “click” on a banner advertisement, the “click” takes you off the BMWiForum.BMWUSA.com site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use BMWiForum.BMWUSA.com’s logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information. Always be aware of where you end up. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online – for example, via message boards or chat – that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While BMWiForum.BMWUSA.com strives to protect its user’s personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers, utilizing encryption software. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to do their jobs are allowed access, each having signed nondisclosure agreements which provide explicit legal confidentiality protections. Any employee who violates our privacy and/or security policies is subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.
