Last modified: January 6, 2011

BAMD is fanatical about maintaining your privacy. We are a not-for-profit with no commercial ties or sponsors, and we do not share any information that you provide or we collect with any outside party. Ever.

This Privacy Policy applies to all pages created by BAMD on the BAMD website. All BAMD website pages display the BAMD masthead at the top of the page. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us through our website.

When you register for BAMD, you may supply personal information. We may display the name you supplied during registration on the BAMD Miatas page, but only if you create a personal Miata page. The BAMD Miatas page is visible only to other registered BAMD drivers. We may display the name you supplied during registration on the BAMD Home page if your Miata is selected as the Featured Miata. You may elect to share your name, email, and Miata information to other registered BAMD drivers through the BAMD Profile page, available from the BAMD Forum page.

If you attend BAMD events, we may display pictures of your Miata on the BAMD Home and Photos pages. These pages are visible to the general public. We make an effort to obscure license plate numbers, but no guarantees. Honestly, we never quite understood that one.

We don't use cookies. Ever. Logins are secured through unique and random trust tokens generated by the login process, not by any information placed on or retrieved from your computer.

When you access the BAMD Forum or other pages requiring a login, the login date and time and incoming IP address is automatically recorded. If you read a Forum post, the date and time is automatically recorded so that we can highlight unread posts. This information is never shared and never displayed except in aggregate.

When you send a Private Message to another registered BAMD driver, the message never leaves the BAMD website. The message is retained by the website so that both sender and recipient can read it at any time, but it can only be accessed by the sender or recipient.

No one from BAMD will ever ask for your consent or opt-in to violate any part of this policy.

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, including appropriate encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

If changes are ever made to this Privacy Policy, they will only be to increase security. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy. We are adamant about protecting the privacy of BAMD drivers. This is one of the founding principles of BAMD, and BAMD will not exist without it.
