BTB Privacy Policy

BTB takes the issue of privacy very seriously, including user interactions with its website.


Some data may be collected about visitors to the BTB web site, including:

  • Standard machine identity details, as is normal and necessary when a user interacts with a website and server; and

  • BTB uses cookies on its website, but only to identify a repeat visitor. The cookies are not used to identify an individual, nor to track an individual's preferences or behaviour when using the site, nor to customise the site or affect what is offered to users.

When a user provides information to BTB through the website – e.g. registering online for a seminar, making a purchase, registering for newsletters and updates, filling in the feedback form - BTB:

  • Does not collect any unnecessary information, nor distribute the information externally without the user's knowledge or consent, nor collect any information without the user's knowledge or consent
  • Stores information as securely as possible and does not allow access to this information by external parties unless required by law (for example, if the information is subject to a warrant or subpoena).

Any information collected is used solely by authorised BTB staff for the purposes of:

  • Analysing the effectiveness of the website to improve its usefulness and service;
  • Processing electronic transactions;
  • Checking and registering of companies for BTB newsletters; and/or
  • Processing a request or feedback by a user.
