How BSL Collects Your Personal Information — You may be asked to voluntarily provide your personal information to BSL anytime you are in contact with BSL, including when you purchase products or services from BSL through retail stores or websites. In those circumstances you can choose not to provide certain requested personal information, but then you may not be able to purchase products or services or access or use certain features of BSL's websites.
