Privacy policy

Billericay Fuel Services is sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet and we want you to know how we treat the information we receive about you.

In general, you can visit the BFS Fuel Services website without revealing who you are or any information about yourself. Our web servers collect only the domain names, not the e-mail addresses of visitors. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. We use this information to measure the use of our site and to improve its content. We may also share this aggregated information with others for similar purposes. By using the website, you consent to such processing.

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advisers. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general use of the BFS websites by using a cookie file. When you first visit a BFS website, a cookie file is sent to your computer that identifies your browser. A cookie file is a small element of data which may be stored on your hard drive so we can recognise you when you return to one of BFS's websites.

There are times when we may need information from you, such as your name and address. When such information is needed, we will let you know at the time of collection how we will use this information. Usually the personal information we collect is used by us only to respond to your inquiry, process an order or allow you to access specific account information.

At times we conduct online surveys to gain a better understanding of the needs and profile of our visitors. When we conduct a survey, we will let you know how we will use the information at the time we collect information from you on the Internet.

We may share the personal information you provide with other third parties we have hired to provide services. Those third parties are required to limit the use of such information to that which is required to perform a specified service.

We do not transfer personal information about you to third parties for their own marketing use. BFS may release information about you if BFS agrees with you to do so, if BFS is required by law or in other specific circumstances, such as protecting your BFS account against fraud. We may also disclose your information to prospective buyers or sellers in the event that we sell or buy any business or asset.

We may store and process personal information collected on the website in any country in which we or our hosting providers maintain facilities. By using the website, you consent to such processing and storage.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access.

The website may contain links to other sites. Although we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not in any way responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites
