The aforementioned platforms facilitate easy and secure electronic transfer of documents/marketing material between:

• You and Bove; and
• provide a secure means of ongoing access to documents (which may or may not include sensitive and confidential information) whether created or not by Bove and/or you.

The BPCP is available to you conditionally upon your acceptance of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein.  By using the BPCP, you expressly agree to these terms and conditions.  Bove without notice or liability and at any time, may modify, suspend, discontinue or restrict the use of any portion of the BPCP, including the availability of any part of the content.

Bove without notice may amend these terms and conditions at its sole discretion and may post any amendments to the terms and conditions on the Bove website.  The terms and conditions will be available on the Bove website at all times.  By continuing to use the BPCP, you accept and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions as they apply from time to time.

Only registered users who are clients of Bove may access and use the BPCP.  Bove may approve registration and access for persons who are not current clients at its discretion.  Upon registration approval and in order to access the BPCP, Bove will provide a user name and link via email to set a password.  Bove reserves the right to deny or restrict access and registration to the BPCP at its discretion and without explanation.

By completing the site registration, you hereby acknowledge that you have read the BPCP terms and conditions and that you agree to the terms and conditions as contained herein.  This Agreement does not modify or affect any existing or future engagement letter or agreement between you and Bove.

Using the BPCP and its related services requires the use of a password and a user name. The confidentiality of your password and account is your responsibility.  Any activities that occur under your account are your responsibility.  You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security.  It is prohibited to use anyone else’s account without the express permission of that account holder.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure.  Whilst Bove strive to protect such information, Bove do not warrant and cannot ensure the security of any information which you transmit to us.  Accordingly, any information which you transmit to us is transmitted at your own risk and you should ensure appropriate malware protection and security measures at all times.  Refer also to Bove Privacy Policy for further information https://www.bove.com.au/privacy/ .

Bove may collect general information such as the pages you access, the date and time of your visit, IP address, and the domain name and country from which you access the BPCP.  This includes the use of “cookies”.  Most browsers can be configured so as not to accept cookies; however, this may affect the functionality of the BPCP.  Refer also to Bove Privacy Policy for further information https://www.bove.com.au/privacy/ .

You are prohibited from using the BPCP to damage, disable, or overburden Bove servers or network or impair the BPCP or interfere with any other party’s use of the BPCP.  Hacking, password mining or any other means to gain unauthorized access to the BPCP, BPCP accounts, computers or network is prohibited.  Posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libellous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane material or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law is also prohibited.  Bove will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing Bove to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information and materials.
