- Third-party Interactions on the Website
BEIL’s Website(s) may allow third parties to provide products and services directly to BEIL customers. Such relationships are often designated with a ‘Provided By’ or ‘Powered By’ company logo or other similarly worded designation. When processing or performing the named function that party will collect your information and share Personal Information with BEIL. You may review the privacy practices of the third party either by clicking the link on the bottom of the page or by clicking on the ‘Provided by Company’ logo, which will take you to their Website.
Partners, promotions and other third-party content is validated against standards and conditions but it always possible that something slips through checks and balances.

- Security of Personal Information
BEIL has invested and deployed a wide variety of technology and security features to make reasonable efforts to ensure the privacy of information on its network. Operations guidelines ensure privacy is safeguarded at every level of our organisation.
Suspicion of a security breach or compromise of your personal information should be immediately reported to Customer Services to minimise damage and risk. The agent will assist with securing the account and investigating the extent of the breach. Consumer Protection Law protects any victim of fraud from charges or penalties if the activity is quickly reported and full cooperation is provided to the Vendor or Service Provider to investigate.
A breach that is not reported within 24 hours of detection can increase risk to the platform and other third-parties. This is a violation of the Terms of Site and it will result in immediate suspension of the ‘account’ and may lead to legal action from BEIL or from third-party Partners if the conduct is found to be irresponsible.
- Security of Digital Transmissions
Key communications with the data centre are encrypted in transit using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with Transport Layer Security (TLS) to restrict third-party eavesdropping to the Service. This mechanism will protect the transmission of Personal Information as it travels to our infrastructure, where it is protected by our security. The browser will display a lock icon to validate the use of SSL on secure parts of the site where forms collect data, payments are processed and Personal Information is handled or updated.
BEIL uses industry standard browser encryption with a bit-strength of 128-bit or 256-bit to secure communications.
Personal Information which you voluntarily include and transmit through publicly accessible forums (i.e., chat rooms, blogs, instant messaging) may be viewed and used by anyone with access to such forums. BEIL assumes no responsibility for anything that is shared from the Service to one of these mediums.
- Personal Information
Personal Information about you is available at your request and can be changed at your request. All necessary steps must be taken to validate your identity before the request is fulfilled. Personal Information will be requested and compared to the records the Service has on file to the satisfaction of the BEIL representative.
