* What are Cookies?
A "cookie" is a small text file that a web site can place on your computer's hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to use an online "shopping cart" to keep track of items you wish to purchase. The cookie transmits this information back to the web site's computer that, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it. Most consumers do not know that "cookies" are being placed on their computers when they visit web sites. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a web site attempts to place a "cookie" on your computer.
If you choose to identify yourself by sending us an email:
- We use information sent to us through e-mail in various ways to further our mission of providing immediate and accurate responses to concerns and requests for information. We may share the information you send with other departments within the district if we believe that doing so will answer your questions or resolve a concern.
- BPS will cooperate fully with local, state, or federal officials in any investigation concerning or relating to any illegal activities conducted through this website.
Here's what you should know about the security of the information you provide to us:
- We do not use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission of information you submit to us through online forms.
- You should also know that email is not necessarily secure against interception. If the information you are sending is of a sensitive nature, you should consider contacting us by telephone or by postal mail.
