A strong relationship with our users is essential. A critical part of these relationships is establishing trust and confidence, which is why the privacy and security of your data has always been our priority for over 23 years.

Although GDPR applies only to data collected from persons located in the European Union (EU), our goal is to continuously implement network-wide improvements and new functionalities for all BEI users.
