IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Internet. Web servers (computers that "serve up" web pages) automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When visitors request pages from our Web site, our servers typically log their IP addresses. We collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report non-personal aggregate information to others, and to track the use of our Web site. IP addresses are considered non-personal information and may also be shared as provided above. We reserve the right to use IP addresses and any personally identifiable information to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Web site rules or to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our Web site, or other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our Web site's users or the general public.

Cookies Betches may use cookies. A cookie is a piece of data stored on your computer tied to information about you. We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once you close the browser, the cookie is terminated. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on your hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s help instructions.

Third Party Cookies In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Betches has no access to or control over these cookies, once we have given permission for them to be set. This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by Betches only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers or other partners.

Email Communications

If you send us an email with questions or comments, we may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. For security reasons, we do not recommend that you send non-public personal information, such as passwords, social security numbers, or bank account information, to us by email. However, aside from our reply to such an email, it is not our standard practice to send you email unless you request a particular service or sign up for a feature that involves email communications, it relates to purchases you have made with us, we are sending you information about our other services, or you consented to being contacted by email for a particular purpose. In certain instances, we may provide you with the option to set your preferences for receiving email communications from us; that is, agree to some communications but not others.

The Google Analytics features you've implemented based on Display Advertising (e.g., Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, or Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting).

Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Settings.

Log Files and Web Beacons Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. These include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information. We may use a tracking utility that uses log files to analyze user movement.

For your safety, we do not link IP addresses to personal information unless we notify you or unless necessary to enforce the terms and conditions of our website. In general the use of log files is simply to monitor traffic on our website and in the event necessary, troubleshoot technical problems. Please note that in the event of an abuse by a user of our website we may block certain IP addresses. In addition to cookies and log files we do at times use a common internet technology called “web beacons”. These are small graphic images placed on a web page, web based document, or an email address that is designed specifically to allow us or our third parties vendors to collect certain information and monitor use activity on our website. Please note these are invisible to the user because they are typically very small. In furtherance of our Privacy Policy please note we do not use web beacons to collect the personal information about you. We may use them to collect non-personal information such as IP addresses of the computer that the web beacon said to, the URL of the page where the web user comes from and the time the web beacon is activated.

Legal Disclaimer We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This promise not to share your information does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business or servicing you so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential in accordance with our Privacy Policy. Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, Betches may need to disclose personal information when required by law if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process or enforce our site policies or protect ours or other’s rights, property or safety.

Business Transitions In the event Betches goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, your personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.

As a result, it is strongly suggested that you check back from time to time to insure that you are aware of any changes to our Privacy Policy.
