Google Analytics is Google’s free web analytics tool that helps us to understand how our visitors engage with our website. Google Analytics collects information anonymously, and much like examining footprints in sand, it reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. Analytics uses its own set of Cookies to track visitor interactions. These Cookies are used to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page. Google Analytics customers can view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with their website, so they can improve their website and how people find it. A separate set of cookies is used for each website, and visitors are not tracked across multiple sites. Analytics customers are obliged to notify users of their use of analytics software. To disable this type of cookie, some browsers will indicate when a cookie is being sent and allow you to decline cookies on a case-by-case basis. In addition to declining Cookies, you can also install the Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on in your browser, which prevents Google Analytics from collecting information about your website visits.
EU legislation requires website owners and operators to ask for permission before using certain kinds of Cookies.

We may collect the personal information of third parties when you add the names of shareholders or beneficiaries on our order forms. If you are our point of contact, and other individuals are connected to your order, they are very likely to be data subject whose personal data must be processed as a result of this connection.
In that prospect, you must secure proper consent from any data subject whose personal data you supply to BNC, and you will be asked to confirm that their consent to the processing of their personal data was obtained in a regular way.

If we combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
Cookies may be encountered from third parties via links made available on the payment pages of our website which cannot be controlled by us (for example, if a user views a website created by a third party or uses an application developed by a third party, there may be a cookie placed by that webpage or application). We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that IP addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. As it is applicable for most Internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type and language, name of user’s internet service provider, referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

In some email messages, we may use click-through uniform resource locators (‘URL’) linked to content on the BNC website. When you click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on the website. We may track this click-through data to help determine interest topics and measure the effectiveness of customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click on text or graphic links in the email messages. Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format user can read, and they tell whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to users.
