Our Privacy Policy

Your privacy is one of our primary concerns. The Bowling Green Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (BGACVB) makes every effort to provide you with a safe and private environment. The BGACVB ’s privacy policy tells you what information we gather and how we use it.

Information Collection

The BGACVB collects two types of information:

  1. Personal Information - When you sign up for services or request information, you may be asked to provide personal information. Personal data may also be requested when registering for events or email services. This information will not be released without authorization from you and we will not disclose personal identification information.
  2. Web Site Activity Data - Activity data is gathered through several methods, and is tracked as a whole rather than individually. This allows us to track the BGACVB Web site — we never use it to personally identify you. By tracking we can build the most effective Web site for all visitors. Generally, we look at how well pages, products or sections of the Web site perform based on traffic. Specifically, we can determine which areas are most effective or appropriate based on the amount of traffic to particular areas.
  3. Demographic Data - On this website, we collect demographic data from Google's Interest-based advertising with Google Analytics. Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the ads setting. Here is the opt-out tool: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/ 

Information Usage

The BGACVB will not disclose to any business personal information that identifies you to any third party without your consent unless we clearly define the nature and manner of disclosure or disclosure is legally required or to protect our rights.

Email Newsletters

If users wish to subscribe to our email newsletters, we ask for contact information (such as name, email address and, occasionally, demographic information). We use this information in the same manner as we use contact information in the registration process described above. Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe using the instructions listed at the end of the email newsletter.

Surveys and Contests

From time to time we invite users to provide information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether to disclose requested contact information (such as name and mailing address) and demographic information (such as zip code or job title). In addition to other uses set forth in this policy, contact information collected in connection with surveys and contests is used to notify the winners and award prizes, to monitor or improve the use and satisfaction of the site.

Communication with Us

We have features where users can submit information to us (such as our feedback forms and contact information for each CVB staff member).

Notification of Privacy Changes

The BGACVB reserves the right to change this privacy policy at any time. When changes are made they will be posted to the Web site immediately.

Corrections/Updating Personal Information

If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code), or if a user no longer desires to receive information from us, we provide a way to correct or update that user’s personal data. You can contact the BGACVB at info@visitbgky.com or 270-782-0800.


Our Web site contains links to other sites. The BGACVB is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each Web site to which we may link that may collect personally identifiable information.
