BLA collects common non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. BLA’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how BLA’s visitors use its website. From time to time, BLA may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Certain visitors to BLA’s websites choose to interact with BLA in ways that require BLA to gather personally-identifying information.

In each case, BLA collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BLA. BLA does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
