We take your privacy very seriously. This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit brinning.net (the “Site”). This Privacy Policy applies to all information you submit to brinning.net, and all information collected through our Services and the Site. 

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
- “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
- “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

Additionally when you voluntarily provide us with personal information through our contact form, we collect that information from you, including your first and last name, email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Voluntarily Submitted Information.”

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Voluntarily Submitted Information.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We use your Voluntarily Submitted Information to:
- respond to enquiries you have made through the Site;
- communicate with you;
- provide you with information relating to our services.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our visitors browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing campaigns).

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our visitors use the Site--you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

We may process your data if you have given us specific consent to use your Personal Information for a specific purpose.

Where we have entered into a contract with you, we may process your Personal Information to fulfill the terms of our contract.

We may share your data with third-party vendors, service providers, contractors or agents who perform services for us or on our behalf and require access to such information to perform that work. Examples include payment processing, email delivery, customer service, hosting services, and marketing efforts.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.

DO NOT TRACK BEHAVIOUR
Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

DATA RETENTION
When you contact us through the Site, we will maintain your Voluntarily Submitted Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is otherwise required by law (such as tax, accounting, or other legal requirements). 

When we have no ongoing legitimate business to need to process your Personal Information, it will be deleted.

MINORS
We do not aim any of our services or information at children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect any data from children under 13 years of age.

CHANGES
We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.

YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS
You have the right to receive information about the source, recipients, and purposes of your archived Personal Information at any time without having to pay a fee for such disclosures. You also have the right to demand that your data are rectified or deleted. If you have consented to data processing, you have the option to revoke this consent at any time, which shall affect all future data processing. Moreover, you have the right to demand that the processing of your data be restricted under certain circumstances. Furthermore, you have the right to log a complaint with the competent supervising agency.

If you are a European Union resident, you have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below.

Additionally, if you are a European Union resident we note that we are processing your information in order to fulfill contracts we might have with you (for example if you contact us through the Site), or otherwise to pursue our legitimate business interests listed above.

This Site uses tools from companies outside the European Union, including Canada and the United States, such as Google Analytics.

DATA PROTECTION
You are advised that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e., through e-mail communications) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.

SSL AND/OR TLS ENCRYPTION
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries you submit to us through the Site, this Site uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the URL field of your browser switches from “http://" to “https://" and also by the appearance of a lock icon in the URL field.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
