Each Customer should be aware that other web sites visited before entering the web site might place Personal Information within a URL of a Customer during a visit to it, and Bike and Saddle has no control over such web sites.

In a completely automated process, computers process the Data and match it to adverts or related information. Natural persons do not read Data to target adverts or other information without consent. Bike and Saddle never shares Personal Information with any advertiser, unless a Customer specifically asks Bike and Saddle to do so. Advertisers receive a record of the total number of impressions and clicks for each advert. They do not receive any Personal Information. If a Customer clicks on an advert, Bike and Saddle may send a referring URL to the advertiser's site identifying that a Customer is visiting from the web site. Bike and Saddle does not send Personal Information to advertisers with the referring URL. Once a Customer is on the advertiser's site however, the advertiser may collect Personal Information.

Change of ownership. If Bike and Saddle undergoes a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, Bike and Saddle may assign its rights to the Data it processes to a successor, purchaser, or separate entity. Bike and Saddle will notify each Customer of the transfer and the Customer may choose to modify its Personal Data at that time.
