Privacy Policy

Your privacy and the security of your confidential information are of paramount importance to us.

Consulting & Training Engagements

Bison Risk Management Associates (“Bison”) will never disclose or distribute any of your information unless: (1) we receive your express authorization, or (2) we are compelled to do so by a government entity through legal process (subpoena, etc.).  Unless prohibited from doing so, we will notify you of any law enforcement requests for your information to enable you to challenge the request if you so desire.
 
Your non-public information will only be accessed by or be provided to, Bison employees, consultants or others that require your information to perform their jobs or duties.  Access is on an "as-needed" basis.  Any non-Bison employees or companies which Bison hires or engages, are required to have privacy policies that are at least as restrictive as those of Bison. 
 
The original work papers (notes taken by Bison or materials provided to Bison prior to or during interviews or engagements) will all be returned to you upon completion of your engagement with Bison.  Bison will scan copies of these documents, and retain them in encrypted form on our servers under AES 256 bit encryption levels.  This is the highest level of commercially available encryption.

At your request, Bison will permanently remove/destroy the retained copy of your reports and scanned work papers.  Please understand that if you make this request of Bison, we will no longer be able to provide you with additional copies of the report(s) or work papers in the future.

Any reports delivered to you by e-mail will be encrypted and password protected so they remain confidential until you retrieve and decrypt them.
 
Email Lists
 
We will never sell, trade, provide or barter your email address with any other business or entity.  All of our email newsletter lists provide you with the option to have your email address permanently removed from the list.

We recognize and respect your need for privacy and security as you visit our site. When you visit our site to view any pages or read product information, you do so without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information.

There are instances where you may elect to provide us with personal information.

You never transmit personally identifying information that you do not enter yourself. And this is always your option; this information cannot be collected unless you specifically elect to send it to us.
