1. TRUSTEE PRIVACY CERTIFICATION

BAA is a licensee of the TRUSTEE Privacy Program. TRUSTEE is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to build trust and confidence in the internet by promoting the use of fair information practices. 'BAA' has agreed to disclose its information practices and have its privacy practices reviewed for compliance by TRUSTEE.

2. COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We collect your information at various points when you use the site. We use the data that we collect to tailor your experience on the site, showing content that we think you might be interested in, and displaying the content according to your preferences

3. WHEN YOU USE THE MESSAGE CENTER

We have developed a Message Center that uses a 'double-blind' email system, which hides the email addresses to protect the privacy of both the sender and receiver. When using the Message Center, it is up to you to choose when you are comfortable disclosing your email address, or any other contact information to others. BAA respects the privacy of members' communication sent through the Message Center and does not read or disclose those communications unless we believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or as otherwise required by law enforcement.

4. WHEN YOU USE MESSAGE BOARDS, CHAT ROOMS AND PHOTO ALBUMS

Information submitted to photo albums, message boards and chat rooms is displayed publicly so please exercise care in deciding what information you wish to disclose. Information posted in private groups is viewable by those who are invited to participate by the owner of the group. Please note however, that although private, these communications and postings are subject to the same disclosures as stated above in 'when you use the message center'. To protect the privacy of our members, BAA does not allow the public posting of personal contact information. We have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any activity and content associated with the public and private forums and interactive areas on the site.

5. WHEN YOU USE THE REUNION CENTER

Designated BAA contacts are provided with tools that support their ability to inform BAA members about their reunion. Please be aware that, as a BAA contact, your email address will be displayed to the member to whom you send an invitation when you use the 'Invitation Tool'.

II SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

1. CONFIDENTIALITY

BAA only shares your information with others when we have your permission, or under the types of circumstances described in the Privacy Policy. In addition, we limit access to your information to only those employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or to do their jobs.

2. LEGAL DISCLOSURE

Some disclosure of information may be required to do by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to applicable law, comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on BAA or the site, protect and defend the rights or property of BAA, or investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or violations of our Terms of Service.

3. CHANGING OR CORRECTING YOUR INFORMATION

BAA provides ways in which you can update your information

4. OUR APPROACH TO PRIVACY

BAA staff, contractors and others who help us operate our website follow this policy on privacy and fair information practices for online activities of Brentwood Alumni Association (BAA). By registering as a member of BAA, you agree to accept this Privacy Policy and are aware that our policy may change over time as discussed below. The security of your personal information is a high priority of BAA. We maintain the website and all associated data with technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect against loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification and improper disclosure. No computer system or information can ever be fully protected against every possible hazard, but BAA is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate security controls to protect our website and information against foreseeable hazards.

BAA conducts email and web-delivered surveys from time to time, as well as instant polls, to gather information about our alumni. It is important to remember that taking these surveys and polls is entirely optional. You have no obligation to respond to them. We share only the aggregate results of these surveys, not individual data.

7. LEGAL AUTHORITIES

The BAA site may also disclose personally identifiable information in cases when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify someone who may be violating BAA's User Agreement or may be causing injury to BAA's rights or property, other users, or anyone else. The BAA site may disclose personally identifiable information of our users to government authorities at our discretion.
