Privacy Policy

Information Collection and Use
Blackstone Valley Oil ("BVO"), is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
BVO collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

Security
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, please send us an e-mail.

Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Sharing
We may resort to using a third-party delivery company to fulfill your order if we are unable to, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

Web Links and Email links
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that BVO is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other parties, sites or individuals. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site and email sent to this server.

Newsletter
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.

Site Feedback
If a user chooses to submit a feedback form on the site, they will be asked for their name, email address and, optionally, their phone number. This information is used expressly for the purpose of replying to the user who has submitted a feedback question or comment. This information is not viewed by or shared with any outside contact.

Special Offers
We send all new members a welcoming email. Established users will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and newsletters. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.

Choice/Opt-out
Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our order form has an ‘opt-out’ mechanism so users who wish to subscribe to our mailing list, but do not want any marketing material, can keep their mailing address off of our lists.

Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials may opt-out of receiving these communications by marking the appropriate field on the user information page or replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email us at webmaster@blackstonevalleyoil.com.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Questions About This Policy
Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please send us an e-mail.
