Bivar, Inc. has long recognized that individuals with whom we conduct business value their privacy. However, in order to conduct global business in this increasingly electronic economy, the collection of business and personal information is often necessary and desirable. It is Bivar's goal to balance the benefits of e-business with the right of individuals to prevent the misuse of any personal information.
