Like most website operators, BernardGo.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. BernardGo.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how BernardGo.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, BernardGo.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
BernardGo.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. BernardGo.com does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to BernardGo.com choose to interact with BernardGo.com in ways that require BernardGo.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that BernardGo.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who want to subscribe to BernardGo.com and receive new posts by email to provide an email address.
In each case, BernardGo.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BernardGo.com. BernardGo.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
All of the information that is collected on BernardGo.com will be handled in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using BernardGo.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
