Who we are

Bostec Inc.’s website address is https://bostec.com/. We provide assistance to more than 200 companies involved in workplace drug testing. Bostec also provides law enforcement agencies in Washington, Alaska, Oregon and Idaho with high-quality evidential breath alcohol testing instruments and supplies, and we supply many agencies doing testing in the Department of Transportation field with instrumentation, supplies, repairs & service, and breath alcohol technician (BAT) training. It is our goal to give personal and professional service to our clients.  We strive to provide this service with a high degree of integrity at a reasonable cost.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Via contact forms: The Bostec website contains a contact form that allows you to submit a message or question, along with your name and email address. We collect this information to aid us in responding to your question. Information submitted via the contact form is stored in our website’s database and sent to our website administrator via email. This is so that we can begin a conversation with you and respond quickly to your question or comment. We keep this correspondence stored in email so that we can continue our conversation at a later date without losing the context of what we’ve already discussed.

Via cookies: Google Analytics is installed on this site to track user interactions. Google Analytics uses cookies for this purpose. Here’s a bit of info from Google on how the Analytics platform uses cookies:

“Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on visitor (aka. user) interactions on Google Analytics customers’ websites. Users may disable cookies or delete any individual cookie.

In addition, Google Analytics supports an optional browser add-on that – once installed and enabled – disables measurement by Google Analytics for any site a user visits. Note that this add-on only disables Google Analytics measurement.

Where a site or app uses Google Analytics for Apps or the Google Analytics for Firebase SDKs, Google Analytics collects an app-instance identifier — a randomly generated number that identifies a unique installation of an App. Whenever a user resets their Advertising Identifier (Advertising ID on Android, and ID for Advertisers on iOS), the app-instance identifier is also reset.

Where sites or apps have implemented Google Analytics with other Google Advertising products, like Google Ads, additional advertising identifiers may be collected. Users can opt-out of this feature and manage their settings for this cookie using the Ads Settings.

Google Analytics also collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to provide and protect the security of the service, and to give website owners a sense of which country, state, or city in the world their users come from (also known as “IP geolocation”). Google Analytics provides a method to mask IPs that are collected (detailed below) but note that website owners have access to their users’ IP addresses even if the website owners do not use Google Analytics.”

Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. You may choose remove and/or reject cookies from within your browser settings. This may affect how the Bostec website functions in your case.

Via embedded content from other websites: Occcasionally, articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website. This website also may contain links to external websites. If you visit those other sites, your use of those sites is subject to the privacy policies of those sites. You are encouraged to read the privacy policies of all sites you visit.

Via order forms: When you purchase items from the Bostec website, we collect information about you that is necessary to complete your transaction, including your name, mailing address, email address and phone number. Any and all information is used only for the purpose for which it was collected. Bostec uses WooCommerce for its online store; you can find the WooCommerce privacy policy (along with the privacy policy for WordPress, which Bostec also uses) here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.

Bostec does not share your information with anyone except as necessary to conduct a particular transaction.

E

How long we retain your data

As noted above, information submitted to us via the contact or order forms on our website or via email may be retained indefinitely on our website and email servers so that we may continue conversations without losing the context of what has been previously written.

What rights you have over your data

If you have submitted information to us via the contact form, order form or email, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Many browsers allow users to send “do not track” signals to websites. However, according to https://allaboutdnt.com/, there is no consensus on how websites should interpret these signals. At present, the Bostec website does not make any changes in response to DNT signals.
