Access to BGCH Websites and Collection of Information
Records of your use of BGCH’s Websites are the sole property of BGCH. BGCH reserves the right to use such information for its marketing, membership and any other business endeavors.
Services that are Location-Based
In order to provide location-based services, it may be necessary for BGCH to collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your computer or device. Where available, location-based services are likely to use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP (Internet Protocol) Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, as well as other technologies to determine the precise location of your device within the limits of the available technology. Unless you have provided consent, such location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you, the user, and is employed to provide location-based services to visitors and users of BGCH’s Websites.
As an example, if your device shares its geographic location with a Service, that Service may select and display properties relative to the location of the device. Some location-based services may also require your personal information for the service to be provided successfully.
BGCH’s Websites may contain links to other third-party websites on the Internet. BGCH is not responsible for the privacy practices and policies of sites other than its own. BGCH encourages you to be aware of the privacy statements on other third-party websites and to read those statements carefully before proceeding to use such websites.

As a user you must have a specific user identifier (user ID or username) and password to access resources through any password-protected portions of the Websites.

If you are a parent or guardian who believes that your minor under the age of 18 has submitted personal information or other information to us without your consent, please contact us using the contact page on BGCH’s Website. Once we have verified that you are the parent or the legal guardian, we will cooperate with you to discuss what, if any, personal information we have collected about your child and how that information may have been shared or used.
