Our Privacy Policy
Blake Accounting and Tax is fully committed to protecting your privacy while you use our site or our services. We are particularly sensitive to the fact that your personal and business information is of utmost importance to you.

State-of-the-Art Security System
We employ strong security systems to protect your business' data from any unauthorized use. We store all confidential information on databases that sit behind state-of-the-art firewall systems. We take technical, contractual and administrative steps to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of information within our control. We ensure that our employees and partners are aware of our security policies and practices at time of hire and through periodic company-wide email reminders. All employees are required to sign strict confidentiality agreements upon hire. Only selected employees have access to our databases, and may do so only upon entering a password protected access program. We also assure that our web security is reviewed at regular frequency, to assure the proper operation and protection of our entire database.

How We Collect Information
When we contract with you to provide professional accounting and tax services, we collect certain personal information, including contact information, social security numbers, and financial information.  The information you provide is used only for registration purposes and to set up your account with Blake Accounting and Tax.

We will not knowingly give, sell, rent, or loan any identifiable personal or corporate information to any third party, unless we have obtained prior consent from you or we are legally required to do so.

IP Tracking (Log Files) and "Cookies".
In an effort to continuously improve and personalize our website to your needs, SiteBuilder may track IP addresses and may use random number assignments on a user's hardrive (called "cookies") to track general and aggregate web browsing patterns such as content preferences and traffic patterns. The use of cookies simply gives us basic general information such as how many times a user has visited our site in a given month, and what pages the user has visited. This helps us personalize the usage of the site to your browsing pattern. From time to time, we may have arrangements with third parties who provide or track usage of sponsored links that we believe may be of value to our customers. These parties include advertisers who may also use cookies to serve advertisements that may be of interest to you.

We may also conduct voluntary surveys from time to time, for the purpose of improving our services and to deliver to you a more personalized service. At no time shall individual identities be released, without your prior consent.

Communications With You
From time to time, and only if you have agreed to do so by registering with us, we will send you certain correspondence, with information you specifically requested. These will take the form of emails, online newsletters (also in form of emails), pop-up windows, promotional and confirmation letters. In addition, we will send you an email should there be any changes to our site that may affect your use of our site. These changes may include changes to our privacy policy, terms and conditions, new available features, and deleted features.

Your Account Information is Always Protected
Blake Accounting and Tax considers your private information very seriously. As a result, we will never share personal or business information with any third party, unless we first obtain your permission or we are legally bound to do so. We may, however, share aggregate statistical information regarding our customers, each of whom is bound by their own privacy policies and applicable laws. This information will always be in aggregate and will not be individual and personal in nature. For instance, we may provide statistical information on the number of new customers signed on with Blake Accounting and Tax in a given month. We will never inform our partners of information that may be personal in nature, unless we specifically obtain your prior consent.

Blake Accounting and Tax may partner with third parties to provide a more comprehensive service offering to you such as third party content, links, sponsored messages, etc. These parties are not allowed access to personally identifiable information, including emails, nor do they require such access to provide their services. Blake Accounting and Tax does not share email information with its partners, preventing them from sending any emails to you directly. We require all such vendors and partners to adhere to our confidentiality and privacy standards and to destroy any customer data in their possession, if any, once the services are completed. However, Blake Accounting and Tax is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these Sites.

Third Party Links
You may see various links throughout the site that lead you to another website, outside of Blake Accounting and Tax. These sites may include our affiliates, partners, sponsors, etc. Because these links are third party links, Blake Accounting and Tax is not responsible for the privacy practices or any privacy issues that may arise on the linked sites. Please refer to the respective third party's privacy policies.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will inform you so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email and wait for your consent. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
