Use of personal information
We process personal information collected via this website for the purposes of providing information services, administering and promoting BICOM and dealing with your enquiries, requests and carrying out research.

A “cookie” is a small text file that is placed on a user’s computer hard drive by a website.
BICOM uses benign, short lived ‘session’ cookies to tell whether a website user has logged-in, and their unique session ID number. They may also be used to track anonymously which areas of the site are popular and which are not used, this allows us to target carefully our website resources.
BICOM cookies do not analyse visits to other third-party websites or any searches undertaken whilst on the BICOM website. Nor are they used to store any personal information.
Internet browsers normally accept cookies by default; however, it is possible to set a browser to reject cookies. If this is done it is important not to exclude the benign and useful session cookies, as some of the functions of the site may fail to operate.
We will not disclose your personal information to any third party unless:
- required to do so by law
- reasonably necessary in our view to defend the rights or reputation of BICOM or its users; or
- you sign a BICOM petition
If you sign a BICOM petition, you give us your consent to disclose your name, city or region in which you live or work and the institution or organisation to which you belong to media organisations (on and off-line), including newspapers and the website www.petitiononline.com, and other organisations in order to publicise a BICOM campaign. If you wish us not to make further disclosures after you have signed a BICOM petition, please tell us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by browsing this website and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.
