Information Collection and Use
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your experience easier.
We gather certain usage information like the number and frequency of visitors to this site. This information may include which URL you just came from, which URL you go to next, what browser you are using, and your IP address. We only use such data in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how much our customer use parts of the site, and do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand and serve you. Third parties that help us run our services may also collect this type of aggregated, non-personally identifiable information. In addition, we aggregate data and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for marketing and promotional purposes.
Personally Identifiable Information
We may use third-party service providers to facilitate our services and therefore we may provide some of your personally identifiable information directly to them. In addition, we employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments and providing customer service. They have access to personally identifiable information and may use it as needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for any other purpose, except that they may aggregate your personally identifiable information with similar information of other customers in a manner that does not personally identify you.
Bruin cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties, to enforce laws, such as intellectual property rights, fraud and other rights. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to liability.
Policies: Ages under 18
Bruin is concerned about the safety and privacy of people who use the Internet. We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a person under 18 has provided us with personally identifiable information without verifiable consent from the parent, we will use our best efforts to remove such information from our files.
Other Information Collectors
Bruin uses standard industry practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. Bruin treats data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company. Please note that perfect security does not exist on the Internet.
