Your use of the Site or Services indicates your acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Most areas of the Sites are intended for consumers. One of the Sites – SkyRouter – is restricted to use by our service customers. This Privacy Policy describes BSN’s collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information and Anonymous Information (each as defined below) in both the consumer areas of the Sites and within SkyRouter. “Personal Information” means your contact information (e.g., your name, address, email address, or telephone number) and any other non-public information that we associate with your contact information. “Anonymous Information” means information that we do not link to Personal Information and does not enable contact with any identifiable person. This Privacy Policy applies to BSN’s handling of Personal Information and Anonymous Information collected via this Website or SkyRouter and not to data obtained from other sources.

THE SITE AND SERVICES ARE HOSTED IN THE UNITED STATES.

This Site is intended for adult use only. We do not direct any part of our Site to children less than 18 years old, nor do we knowingly collect Personal Information from children.

 

We Collect Personal Information

In the consumer areas of the Sites, we collect Personal Information when you knowingly provide it to us. In order to use, access, or receive certain Services, you may be required to complete the applicable registration form accessible on the Sites. For example, to receive a login to the SkyRouter Site, you must provide your name and email address. To send a satellite message, you will be required to provide the number to which you are sending the message, your email address and a message. In addition, we collect Personal Information when you correspond with us.

To gain access to SkyRouter, you may be required to provide certain Personal Information, including your name, and email address and a password. In order to expedite your registration, and for verification purposes, it is possible that we may obtain certain Personal Information about you from the paperwork you have submitted during the purchase of equipment and subscription for Services from us such as your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and/or citizenship. In addition, if you have chosen and authorized us to charge your credit card monthly by completing a form, we retain that form in your file. We may also retain the credit card number in an electronic form to expedite the monthly charging for Services or equipment. These files are encrypted on our servers and are only accessible by designated employees who have been given the de-encryption key.

 

Anonymous Information Collected Via Technology

When you use the Site or Services, we collect certain Anonymous Information, such as your Internet protocol address, browser type and access times. We may also use cookies or similar technology and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and other Site usage data. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your browser while you are viewing it. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your browser until you delete them). We use such Anonymous Information for a variety of business purposes, including improving our Site and Services and tailoring them to your preferences. Although you can block cookies and similar technology, your experience of the Site and Services could be affected by doing so.

 

The Ways We Use Information

We use Personal Information that you submit to us for a variety of business purposes, including to administer your account, communicate with you, respond to your requests, provide Services, improve the quality of the Site and Services, ensure compliance with applicable law, and provide you with information that may be useful or interesting to you. Such information may include newsletters and marketing communications. You can opt out of receiving newsletters from BSN by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of a newsletter email. Please note that even if you unsubscribe or opt-out, we may still send you transactional, relationship or service related emails (e.g., emails related to your use of Services or System Maintenance).

We may also use your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information by removing information that makes the information personally identifiable to you (such as your name or email address). We may use these records, and other Anonymous Information, to analyze usage patterns in order to enhance the Site or Services or for other business purposes.
