We do not share your personal information with third parties for their promotional purposes.
Our site utilizes forms in which you provide us with personal information (your name, address, telephone number(s), and email address) which allows you to inquire about a potential watch repair, and/or request information, and/or make purchases for estimates and/or repair services. When you make a purchase for estimates utilizing your credit card or PayPal, an account is created for you on our secure shopping cart site. If you choose to place an order for an estimate or for services, your credit card number and expiration date are collected. We utilize the contact information collected on you only if we have to contact you regarding your purchase of an estimate and/or service, or to respond to a question from you about a repair in progress.
Occasionally, we also may contact you with a special offer on discounted repairs. If you would rather not receive this information, please email us at this secure link and request to opt out of special offers.
If you do not have a watch in for service, but contact us with a question via email, or through AskTheWatchmaker.com, we do NOT retain a copy of this contact, nor do we utilize this information in any way other than to choose to respond directly to you with the information you have requested from us.
Should we discover that you have posted what we consider to be false and/or defamatory remarks or comments about our company on any third party websites or forums, or in any way distributed or transmitted false and/or defamatory statements about our company to a third party, we reserve the right to contest these statements, and to make portions of these statements public, up to and including the publishing of your name and your comments on our website.
We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file.
Our third party service provider utilizes cookies to keep track of your service cart and receipts. These "cookies" are utilized to identify you for future logins, and are linked to your specific customer account information. A "cookie" is a small piece of information that is sent from a Web server to your computer and stored in a file on your hard drive/disc. These cookies perform as "labels" that show you have visited a particular Web page. Many customers are concerned about this issue. Please know that BfW Co.'s secure service cart will only place a cookie on your hard drive for the purpose of recognizing you upon your return to the service cart. We do not store your purchase information in this file. It is stored in a secure database. If you delete this cookie, you will simply be required to sign in again upon your return to the service cart.

Our secure service cart offers you the advantage of placing your order for an estimate and/or service repair online using secure servers and encryption. Your purchase, credit card information, and personal data are encrypted and secured through a link to our secure, dedicated server utilizing Secure Socket Layer [SSL] technology. During the completion of your order, you will be linked from our Web page to customized screens on our secure server. Your information is encrypted during its trip across the Internet to prohibit viewing by a third party.

Instances Where We May Be Compelled to Share Your Information
As stated previously in this policy, we will not share your personal information except with a third party to assist us in the processing or securing of your personal information; or when we are required by law unless we have given you notice and choice, in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of law, or we must comply with a legal process served on our web site, or to our corporation such as a court order, subpoena, or judicial proceeding.
Changes to Our Policies

Minor changes will be immediately effective upon reposting to this privacy statement on the BfW Co. Inc. web site.
We use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. We also use a shipping agent to deliver your watch back to you. These companies do not retain share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
What Happens To Personal Information if I Terminate my BfW Service Cart Account?
When your BfW Co. Inc. Service Cart account is cancelled (either voluntarily or involuntarily), all of your personal information is placed in "deactivated" status on our relevant BfW Co. Inc. databases. However, you should know that deactivation of your account does not mean your personally identifiable information has been deleted from our databases entirely. We will retain and use personally identifiable information if necessary in order to resolve disputes or enforce our terms and conditions of service.
