Data Integrity.  BirchStreet will only collect information from you that is relevant for the purposes for which it is to be used, and will not process personal information in a way that is incompatible with such purposes for which it has been collected or authorized to be used by you.

Notice. When we collect your personal information, we’ll give you timely and appropriate notice describing what personal information we’re collecting, how we’ll use it, and the types of third parties with whom we may share it.  BirchStreet shall inform an individual for the purpose for which it collects and uses the Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which BirchStreet discloses or may disclose that Information.  BirchStreet shall provide the individual with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclose of their personal information.  Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information to BirchStreet, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before BirchStreet uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected.

Choice.  We’ll give you choices about the ways we use and share your personal information, and we’ll respect the choices you make.  BirchStreet will allow individuals the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether their Personal Information is (1) disclosed to a third party or (2) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.  A visitor to the BirchStreet website or a user of the BirchStreet System may choose to not provide certain information; however this may limit or restrict the user or visitor’s ability to use the BirchStreet System and ability to take advantage of many BirchStreet features.
