- Types of information. BSAM collects Non-personal Information through the Site. “Non-personal Information” is information that does not identify you individually (such as group demographics) or does not permit a direct association with an individual. It may include information derived from Personal Information (defined below) that has been removed from unique identifiers or is otherwise depersonalized or combined with information about other users to form aggregated data. BSAM also collects contact information from you through the Site. This may include Personal Information, though BSAM requests your work-related contact information. “Personal Information” includes your personally identifiable information including first and last name together with email address, mailing address, telephone number or additional contact information. To the extent Non-personal Information is associated with Personal Information, the combination is treated as Personal Information.

This allows us to contact you in connection with your interest in doing business with BSAM.
