Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. In operating this site, we gather certain types of information about users. We want you to know what kind of information we gather and what we do with it.
Information we collect
We collect two general types of user information: personal data such as names and email addresses, and aggregate data such as information about traffic patterns on this site – for example, how many users visit on a daily basis.
Personal data is collected when users provide information to us – for example, in registering for electronic newsletters or other membership services, in answering surveys and requests for information, and in registering for contests or other promotional opportunities. When you register or request information on this site, we generally need you to provide your name, email address, mailing address and telephone number(s). In addition, if you send us personal correspondence such as email messages or letters, we may collect such information in a file specific to you.
Aggregate information and usage information
Aggregate information, such as which pages users access, and information volunteered by users, such as survey responses and/or site registration details, are collected through various methods. When you visit our site, we automatically track information such as the URL you just came from, which URL you surf to next and which web browser you are using. We also record your IP (internet protocol) address, a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers – the computers that “serve up” web pages – identify your computer by its IP address; when you request a page from the Brown + Hudson site, our servers log it as well. However, we do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable data; so although your session will be logged, you will remain anonymous to us.
Please note: except for personal information voluntarily provided by you (e.g., during initial registration or your response to a communication), we do not use information transferred through cookies for any promotional or marketing purposes, nor is that information shared with any third parties whatsoever.
Use of information collected by us
Disclosure of collected information to third parties
We do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise provide your personal data to third parties without prior permission from you. Please note that third parties do not include our subsidiaries, affiliates, licensees, partners, website hosting partners or other parties who assist us in operating this site. We may, however, share user data anonymously in aggregate format, as well as aggregate usage information, with third parties for advertising and promotional purposes. Further, we cooperate with all law enforcement inquires, and with all third parties to enforce their intellectual property or other legal rights.
Links to other sites
It is important to note that this site may contain links to other sites that may not follow the same privacy policies as Brown + Hudson. This includes links to advertisers, media owners, transportation companies, hotels, content providers and business partners, who may use our name and/or logo as a result of a co-branding or other agreement. These sites may send their own cookies to you, and may collect data and make uses of it that we would not. We do not control these sites or bear any responsibility or liability for them.
The security of all personally identifiable information associated with users of this site is of great concern to us. We have implemented a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Once we receive your transmission, we use reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
