Privacy Policy for BMI’s Sites

 

Hi there, we’re BMI, a British company that develops services for the education
market. This policy sets out how we will handle your personal information if you’re a
BMI user or visitor to our Sites.

This applies across Viva-Mundo.com, ExpoEstudiante, Salão do Estudante, Global
Education Fairs, ExpoPós, ExpoPosgrados, BMI Workshops, universityvisits.org,
BMI Scholarship Summits and bmiglobaled.com (hereupon, collectively known as
the “Sites”).

When we say ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘BMI’ it’s because that’s who we are and we own and run
the Sites.

If we say ‘policy’ we’re talking about this privacy policy. If we say ‘user terms’ we’re
talking about the rules for using each of the Sites. The rules vary by product and
each product makes them separately available and seeks consent to them separate
to this policy.

BMI is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Please read our privacy
policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or
otherwise handle your personal information in accordance with our website.
BMI may change this policy from time to time. Changes to our policy will be updated
on our websites and/or services only. You should check our policy from time to time
to ensure that you are happy with any modifications.
