OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY
At The Birchmere Group your privacy is important to us. We are committed to complying with all applicable federal, state, local, and International privacy laws and regulations. We strive to provide an environment in which our employees, customers, stockholders, and partners trust us to handle personal information responsibly. We provide this privacy notice as part of our commitment to privacy by describing what personal information we collect, how we use it, how we protect it, and with whom we share it.
SCOPE OF THIS NOTICE
This notice applies to all visitors to our corporate website and affiliated websites sponsored by the Corporation. Some of our websites, such as the Employee Login website, that provide employees access to personnel and benefits information from the Internet, may provide more detailed privacy or disclaimer notices, in which case they take priority over this notice. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available in the footer of every web page where it applies. Employees and others with access to The Birchmere Group’s internal Intranet should note that this privacy notice will apply if linked directly from there; otherwise, our internal privacy policies will apply.

If you are a supplier you may be asked to identify the financial institution you use and provide account numbers. The specific information that you may choose to provide will depend on the nature of the transaction to be completed and is always voluntary.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We use reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information you provide to us against loss, misuse, or unauthorized access. All personal information that we collect is protected using industry standard computer security and industrial security practices.
