Information about Our Organization and Website

BP Products North America, Inc. (also referred to as "BP," "Company," "we," or "us") is responsible for this website, which is governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, USA. The state and federal courts of Cook County, Illinois shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute arising out of your use of it. You hereby consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts and waive any objections thereto; provided, however, the foregoing shall not prevent BP from seeking temporary or permanent injunctive or other equitable relief against you in any court of competent jurisdiction.

BP Group companies may carry out due diligence checks on potential and existing counterparties. These checks may involve BP collecting personal information via publicly available databases and other on/off-line sources. For information on how BP does this in accordance with applicable data privacy laws please contact privacy3@bp.com.

Collection, Use & Retention of Personal Information

Personal data is information that can identify a specific individual such as name, physical and/or email address and telephone number. If during your visit to this website you order products or services, enter a competition, or submit other information, you are choosing to provide us with your personal information. You agree that it will be used to provide the information, products or services you request (including information on additional products and/or services which BP reasonably thinks may be of interest to you). For more information see the "Direct Marketing" section below.

Personal information is held for the duration of your subscription plus six (6) years for the purposes of managing your account, using and sharing your information as provided in this Privacy Statement, and enforcing BP or another third party’s rights, after which time it may be deleted or aggregated so that it no longer directly identifies you.

Keeping Personal Information Accurate

We are committed to ensuring that your personal information is kept accurate and up to date. However, we can only make changes to your personal information if you notify us. It is your responsibility to let us know if there are inaccuracies or changes to your personal information. If you have any questions related to our marketing programs please contact Webassure@bp.com.

Security

We take appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized modification or unlawful destruction or accidental loss of personal information.

Disclosures and Transfers of Personal Information

In order to provide our products and services we may need to share your personal information with other companies within the BP Group, and/or third party service providers that process data on our behalf. Additionally, we may share your personal information with our jobbers and strategic business partners who may use the information to contact you regarding information, products, or services that may be of interest to you. If you submit personal information to BP, you agree to such disclosure.

Since BP operates globally, BP may want to transfer your personal information to other countries, including countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). However, we always seek to ensure that your personal information receives the same level of protection as it would had it stayed within the EEA, including seeking to ensure that it is kept secure and used only in accordance with our instructions and for the agreed purpose(s).

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, request from a regulator or any other legal process served on BP. In the event that BP is subject to a takeover, divestment or acquisition we may disclose your personal information to the new owner of the business.

Direct Marketing

You agree that BP may send you marketing communications in line with your previously expressed marketing preferences. If you no longer wish to receive such, please modify your preferences or follow the opt-out instructions contained in each marketing communication, or send a note to Webassure@bp.com.
