Privacy Policy

BASEC is committed to respecting the privacy of its online visitors. This statement discloses the site’s privacy practices involving information we collect, how we use it, and how we share it.

Information Collection

The Organization collects two types of information: 1) Personal, voluntary registration information, such as name, address and email address, and personal voluntary employment information such as name, title, organization, address and email; 2) Non-personal statistical information, such as site traffic and usage patterns.

1) Personal information submitted voluntarily is used to fulfill donations, registrations and deliver requested information. This information is stored on secured servers and kept as long as the user is subscribed to receive such information. This information is used solely by BASEC and others involved in the operation of this website and will never be sold, rented or shared with others for their business purposes, or given to third parties except to fulfill requests.

2) Non-personal statistical information, collected in real-time, is to measure site activity, your activity as a grassroots advocate, and improve the structure of our website. We may also use this information to educate ourselves about the interests and concerns of our visitors.

Temporary session cookies are used to collect information and maintain things like the items in your shopping cart. These cookies are destroyed when you close your browser and do not track any personally identifiable information about the user. The cookies are not used for any purpose but to maintain a session.


The Organization makes all attempts to collect and store data in a manner to protect its confidentiality, recognizing that no transmission of data is entirely secure. Although we attempt to keep information in a secure environment to safeguard the confidentiality of users’ personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security.

Privacy Protection for Children

In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we do not knowingly permit persons under the age of 13 to provide personal information through the Organization’s website. If such provision is detected, the Organization will take appropriate steps to remove this information from our databases.

Unsubscribing or Changing Information

The Organization makes every effort to ensure that only visitors who request mail or email will receive mail or email. If you would like to remove your name from the electronic newsletter or other mailing list, simply contact webmaster@belmontbasec.org.


When visitors use the Organization’s website, they are using a service provided by BASEC and agree to be bound by our Privacy statement as it is modified from time to time and posted on this site. Other sites, including those the Organization links to, may have their own policies which the Organization is not responsible for, and are not addressed or controlled by this Privacy Statement. BASEC shall not be liable under any circumstances for damages resulting from use of information collected from visitors to our site.
