GDPR Compliance

General Data Protection Regulation.  The GDPR provides certain rights to online users located in European Union countries (“EU Data Subjects”). An EU Data Subject has the right to access or rectify their Personal Information that BHGR processes. Subject to certain exceptions, an EU Data Subject has the right to request that BHGR erase that Personal Information or restrict the processing of it. When technically feasible, BHGR will, at the EU Data Subject’s request, provide that person’s Personal Information to them or transmit it directly to another data controller. EU Data Subjects also have the right to file a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority. EU Data Subjects may exercise their rights, and ask any other related questions, by emailing

BHGR relies on the legitimate interests (except as where otherwise noted, such as in the cookie consent banner below) described above for processing EU Data Subjects’ Personal Information including: providing access and functionality through the Website, processing payments, improving the Website, and communicating with existing and potential users about additional services that may interest them.

To comply with the GDPR’s requirements, BHGR collects and transfers EU Data Subjects’ Personal Information to other countries outside the European Union only: (1) consistent with an adequacy decision under Article 45 of the GDPR; (2) pursuant to suitable safeguards; or (3) consistent with another permissible transfer mechanism where appropriate.

California Privacy Rights

Shine the Light. California’s “Shine the Light” law permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To obtain this information, please send an email message to with “Shine the Light Request” on the subject line and in the body of your message.  We will provide the requested information to you at your e-mail address in response.  Please be aware that not all information is covered by the “Shine the Light” requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.

Finally, a California resident has the right not to be discriminated against for exercising their privacy rights under the CCPA. Provided, however, that the CCPA does not prohibit BHGR from offering financial incentives, different prices, rates, levels or qualities of goods or services for the collection of Personal Information if that price or difference is directly related to the value provided by the consumer’s data.
