If you choose to provide us with personal information — as in an email to a website manager or someone else, or by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it to us through our website — we may use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We do not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond to you.

Maintaining Safeguards

BDI uses a variety of safeguards, controls, and procedures to prevent unauthorized access to or use of personal information including, but not limited to:

  • Maintaining administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect your personal information
  • Training personnel and restricting information access to persons with a need to know for providing the Services
  • Imposing contractual commitments and procedures requiring service providers and business associates, if any, to adhere to privacy and security policies consistent with our own

All reasonable measures are taken to ensure that your personal information is kept secure and we remain alert and prepared to adapt these measures to address evolving threats and vulnerabilities.

Limiting Disclosure

Personal information is retained and disclosed as necessary to serve our customers and provide Services, and otherwise only in accordance with applicable law. Personal information about our customers or their customers is not used or disclosed to any third parties except:

  • As required in rendering the services you request
  • As required by law (e.g., subpoena or investigation)
  • As may be appropriate to protect against fraud or illegal activity or as otherwise permitted by law
  • If you elect to disclose, or specifically direct us to disclose any personal information to a third party.

BDI will not sell, share, or trade your personal information to outside third parties.

Third Party Websites

This website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that BDI is not responsible for the privacy practices of such sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website. We are not responsible for the third-party website’s use, collection, sale, or sharing of your personal information.

Information Security and Quality

We safeguard the quality and integrity of your personal information by implementing a broad range of technical and organizational security measures, such as penetration and vulnerability testing, malware scanning, and intrusion detection. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential.

In addition, all personal information you supply is encrypted at rest and transmitted via the latest TLS technology. When users submit personal information via the website, such information is protected online and offline. Nevertheless, please note that information you send to us electronically via other means may not be secure when transmitted. We recommend that you do not use unsecure channels to communicate sensitive or confidential information to us.

Internet Security

Below is a high-level diagram of a BDI Web application.

This diagram reveals that BDI’s Web application has security safeguards at several strategic locations.

  • Up to 256-bit TLS is used to encrypt any sensitive information transmitted to or received over the Internet. TLS makes spying a tremendously difficult task and alleviates identity spoofing, information disclosure, and data tampering.
  • Data at Rest Encryption technology (AES-256 encryption standard) is used on all data storage. BDI utilizes technology that is FIPS certified and satisfies regulatory requirements for government agencies, banking, financial, healthcare and other G2000 enterprise customers who consider data security products and solutions.
  • BDI utilizes firewalls to control access and protect sensitive information. Intrusion detection and prevention technology monitors all incoming and outgoing traffic and filters out any abnormal data requests. Internal network segmentation and application controls protect database servers from unauthorized access from within BDI’s private network.
  • Sensitive data, such as IDs and passwords, are encrypted using a strong cryptographic routine before being stored in the database.


To the best of our knowledge, this Privacy Policy and BDI’s Services comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, statutes, rules, regulations and ordinances pertaining to data protection including, but not limited to, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) Act of 1999 (15 U.S.C. §§ 6801-6809), including the Financial Privacy Rule (Subtitle A: Disclosure of Nonpublic Personal Information, codified at 15 U.S.C. §§ 6801–6809), the Safeguards Rule (Subtitle A: Disclosure of Nonpublic Personal Information, codified at 15 U.S.C. §§ 6801-6809), and the Pretexting Protection (Subtitle B: Fraudulent Access to Financial Information, codified at 15 U.S.C. §§ 6821–6827); the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) of 1996 as amended by the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (15 U.S.C §1681); the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR); The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) of 2018 (AB375, Title 1.81.5), as amended by The California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (CPRA); and the California Online Privacy Protect Act (CalOPPA). BDI’s compliance with privacy laws and regulations are audited regularly by BDI’s Legal, Privacy, and Compliance staffs, its Security Council, and BDI clients including their independent counsel and senior administrative staffs. Independent auditors further examine BDI federal and state regulatory compliance on an annual basis. Most updates are obtained through regulatory agency alerts, news feeds, legal reviews and security blogs and BDI regularly provides its customers with published announcements of new and upcoming regulatory changes with the goal of generating early awareness and dialogue.

California Consumer Privacy Policy

For California residents, this Privacy Policy is adopted in accordance with the CCPA and CalOPPA, and any terms defined in the CCPA and CalOPPA have the same meaning when used in this Privacy Policy.

The CCPA provides consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. You have the right to request that a business subject to the CCPA disclose certain information to you about its collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. In addition, you have the right to ask such business to delete personal information collected from you, subject to certain exceptions. If the business sells personal information, you have a right to opt out of that sale. Finally, a business cannot discriminate against you for exercising a CCPA right.

When offering the Services to our customers, BDI acts as a “service provider” under the CCPA. Accordingly, we only receive and collect consumer personal information as required to provide the Services on behalf of our clients. Individuals should direct any requests for access or deletion of their personal information under the CCPA to the organization with whom they have a direct business relationship. BDI clients can submit CCPA related requests through ClientConnect.

Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level, etc.). Survey information will be used only for purposes outlined in the survey itself.
