BRN does not knowingly collect PII from children under 13 years of age.
COLLECTION: COLLECTION OF PII BY BRN
General. BRN collects personally identifiable information ("PII" -- that is, information such as your full name, email address, mailing address or telephone number) only in order to create or enhance our relationship with you. When we collect PII from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting the information to us in order to provide tips, to participate in activities like sweepstakes, contests, games, surveys, forums, subscription registrations, in connection with content or suggestions you submit to us, chats or bulletin boards; or because you want us to furnish you with products, services or information.
NOTICE: BRN WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH NOTICE ABOUT ITS PII COLLECTION PRACTICES
When BRN collects PII from you, we will make sure you are informed about who is collecting the information, how and why the information is being collected and the types of uses BRN will make of the information.
This Policy describes the types of other companies that may want to send you information about their products and services and therefore may want to share your personal information (See "Use" below). However, BRN will notify you of your options regarding our use of your personally identifiable information, including whether we can share it with outside companies, typically at the time of collection.
Sometimes we may collect personally identifiable information from consumers in manual format, such as a post card or subscription form. Providing detailed notice in those situations often proves impractical, so consumers will instead be provided with a short notice that describes how to obtain the full text of this Policy and other relevant information from us.
BRN's web site(s) may also be linked to sites operated by our business partners or by other companies that are affiliated with us. Visitors to those affiliated sites should still refer to their separate privacy policies and practices, which may differ in some respects from this Policy.
USE: BRN'S USE OF PII
BRN will use your PII in a manner that is consistent with this Policy and for the purpose for which it is submitted, unless other uses are disclosed and you allow us to use your information in other ways. BRN may use PII in aggregate, anonymous form for research purposes. In most instances, BRN will delete PII from its records as soon as possible.
BRN may share your PII with companies that are affiliated with us. BRN may also share your PII with companies that are not affiliated with BRN, but would like to send you information about their products and services, such as sponsors of promotions, sweepstakes or other programs. However, you will always have the opportunity to instruct us not to share your information with unaffiliated third parties.
BRN employees, agents and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to your PII. Outside contractors or agents who help us manage our information activities (i.e., sweepstakes administration, order fulfillment, statistical analyses) must comply with BRN's instructions with respect to PII, and may only use PII to provide BRN with a specific service and not for any other purpose.
If BRN obtains PII from a third party, such as a business partner, our subsequent use of this information is governed by this Policy.
There may be instances when BRN may disclose PII without providing you with a choice in order to protect the legal rights of BRN, its producers, affiliates, parent company, employees, agents, contractors and their service providers; to protect the safety and security of visitors to our web sites; to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or to comply with the law or legal process.
In addition, if BRN sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, BRN may transfer your PII to a third party as part of that transaction.
SECURITY: BRN PROTECTS THE SECURITY OF PII
BRN uses reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard PII in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. In addition, BRN uses reasonable methods to make sure that PII is accurate, up-to-date and appropriately complete. However, BRN, its producers, parent company, affiliates, employees, agents, contractors and their service providers do not represent, warrant, or guarantee that PII will be protected against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or alterations. We do not accept any liability for PII submitted, or for any third parties’ use or misuse of PII.
ACCESS, REMEDIES AND COMPLIANCE: HOW TO ACCESS, CORRECT OR DELETE YOUR PII AND HOW TO CONTACT BRN ABOUT PRIVACY CONCERNS
Whenever possible, visitors to BRN may review the PII we maintain about them in our records. We will not be able to provide such access to PII that has been deleted from our records as soon as we are allowed to by law. However, prior to such deletion we will not use that PII except for the purpose for which it was submitted, and we will also take reasonable steps to correct any PII a visitor informs us is incorrect.
166 Madison Ave. NY NY 10016
Please note that participation in certain activities on our web sites(s) may be limited if PII is not submitted by the visitor.
