Last Updated September 1, 2015

This website privacy policy (this “Website Privacy Policy”) describes the privacy practices of Bingham, Osborn & Scarborough, LLC doing business as BOS (“BOS”, “we” and “our”), with respect to our public website, located at www.bosinvest.com and including all publicly-accessible subpages (this “Website”). We encourage you to read this Website Privacy Policy to learn more about the ways in which we may collect, use, disclose, and protect your personal information on this Website.

Your use of this Website indicates that you have read and agree with the terms and conditions of this Website Privacy Policy. If you do not agree, please discontinue use of this Website. By continuing to use this Website, you consent to our use of your personal information in accordance with this Website Privacy Policy. Please note that use of the non-public portions of our website (i.e., BOS Compass) and other client services we may provide are governed by the Terms of Use applicable to BOS Compass (including the privacy-related sections thereof), our Client Privacy Notice and Model Privacy Form, and our client engagement letter, in addition to this Website Privacy Policy.

Collection of Personal Information

We collect personal information (such as name, address, and telephone number) only when it is provided voluntarily by users. For example, such information may be gathered through the use of our “Contact Us” page. Please do not submit any personal information you do not want collected, used, and shared in accordance with the terms of this Website Privacy Policy.

Please note that if you use our “Contact Us” page, any exchange of correspondence and information that follows will be governed by our Client Privacy Notice and Model Privacy Form. You may request such Client Privacy Notice and Model Privacy Form from a BOS representative.

Collection of Online Information

You can generally browse this Website without providing any personal information about yourself. As with many websites, certain Website use information may be tracked and collected. This information may include your Internet Protocol address, the type of browser used, the browser’s language, pages visited, and other usage statistics.

This collection can happen in various ways. For example, we may use data collection devices such as “cookies” or similar technologies. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your hard drive. Cookies can help streamline and personalize a website experience by recording usage information, analyzing webpage flow and trends in behavior, and providing similar types of information that can help us maintain and improve our Website.

We may place cookies or similar technology on your computer for session information, including information needed to navigate in and around this Website. Once your browser is closed, the session cookie is not saved.

You can refuse or delete cookies. Most browsers and mobile devices offer their own settings to manage cookies. If you refuse a cookie when on this Website, or if you delete cookies, you may lose functionality. For example, we may not be able to recognize you, your devices, or your online preferences.

Use of Information

We will not sell, give, or otherwise communicate any usage statistics or other information gathered through this Website to any third party for their own use or purposes. Only we, and our website developer or other service providers, will have access to Website usage data. We may use this information to analyze the usage and effectiveness of our Website, develop and improve the Website, and/or customize and modify content and layout for our own marketing and business purposes and for other similar reasons.

As mentioned above, any personal information given to us through our “Contact Us” page will be governed by our Client Privacy Notice and Model Privacy Form.

Do Not Track Signals

The Do Not Track (“DNT”) signal is a fairly new browser signal. There is no legal requirement for how operators of online services and websites need to respond to a DNT signal, and there is no consensus regarding how to interpret and respond to DNT signals. Because of this, and because we would like to ensure the functionality of our Website for our visitors, we currently do not respond to DNT signals. Third parties are not currently authorized to conduct online tracking on our Website. To the best of our knowledge, no such tracking is currently conducted by third parties on our Website.

Privacy of Children

Neither our services nor our Website are directed at minors. We do not knowingly collect personal information from, or maintain personal information regarding, anyone under the age of 18 though this Website. If we learn that any such information is inadvertently received or collected through this Website, we will make every attempt to remove that data.

Updating Our Website Privacy Policy

Please note that we reserve the right to amend this Website Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes or updates will be effective immediately upon the posting of the updated Website Privacy Policy to this Website. Continued use of the Website following any changes will be considered as an acceptance of the amended Website Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to any changes, you should stop using the Website.
