I. What personally identifiable information does BrandReviewed collect from me?
BrandReviewed collects information in several ways from affiliates and different parts of our network of web sites. The more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we are able to customize your experience and the Service that you receive. As always, you can simply view the Site without registering or subscribing to portions of the Service without being required to provide any personal information, except that which is necessary to accommodate your request.
II. What are cookies and how does BrandReviewed use them?
(2) Estimate our audience size. Each browser accessing BrandReviewed is given a unique cookie which is then used to determine the extent of repeat usage, usage by a registered user versus by an unregistered user, and to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior.
(3) Assist affiliates and merchants associated with BrandReviewed to track visits to and business at their sites and stores, and to process the items in your shopping basket. This information collected by cookies is sometimes called "clickstream" or "click trail" and may also describe which pages you have seen in each merchant's store.
(4) Measure certain traffic patterns, for example areas of BrandReviewed 's network of Sites you have visited, and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. We use this research to understand how our users' habits are similar or different from one another so that we can make each new experience on a BrandReviewed Site a better one. We may use this information to better personalize the content, banners, and promotions that you and other users will see on our sites. Advertisers that serve ads onto BrandReviewed may also use their own cookies. Advertisers and Affiliates will place a cookie or similar technology on your device when an ad is clicked. BrandReviewed also collects IP addresses for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. In addition, BrandReviewed Mail includes IP addresses in outgoing mail message headers.
III. How does BrandReviewed use my information?
BrandReviewed's primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with a customized experience on our network of Sites and through our partners. This includes personalization services, interactive communications, online shopping and many other types of services, most of which are completely free to you. In order to provide services free of charge, we display advertisements and encourage your participation in opt-in mailings. By knowing a little about you, BrandReviewed is able to deliver more relevant advertisements and content and hence better service, to you.
In our role of delivering targeted advertisements, BrandReviewed plays the middleman. Advertisers give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to reach (for example, males over 35 years old). BrandReviewed takes the advertisement and displays it to users meeting that criteria. In this process, the advertiser never has access to individual user information. In other cases, this information may be shared with BrandReviewed 's affiliates and trusted partners in order to deliver advertisements and e-mail offers. This kind of advertisement targeting is done with banner ads as well as promotional email through BrandReviewed, its affiliates and trusted business partners. You will only receive special offers via email from BrandReviewed, its affiliates and trusted business partners if you have indicated in your account preferences, or at some other time, that you would like to receive them.
BrandReviewed does research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us upon registration, during a promotion, from our server log files or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. BrandReviewed may share this aggregated data with advertisers or business partners.
As BrandReviewed develops, we may buy other businesses or their assets or sell our business assets. Customer information is generally one of the business assets involved in such transactions. Thus, in the event that BrandReviewed or all of its assets are acquired, customer information, including any visitor information collected through the Site or the Service, would be one of the transferred assets.
BrandReviewed reserves the right to disclose collected information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contract or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) BrandReviewed ’s rights or property, other visitors, subscribers, members or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. BrandReviewed also reserves the right to disclose visitor, member or subscriber information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
IV. Who is collecting information?
Promotions that run on BrandReviewed may be sponsored by companies other than BrandReviewed or may be co-sponsored by BrandReviewed and another company. Some or all data collected during a promotion may be shared with the sponsor of that promotion.
V. With whom does BrandReviewed share my information?
Our trusted business partners and sponsors will change from time to time, and therefore it is not possible to provide an exhaustive list of our sponsors and business partners. However, some of the trusted business partners or sponsors that BrandReviewed may disclose your personal information to, and you specifically consent to the transfer of such information, include, without limitation:

c.

BrandReviewed may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services. Lastly, BrandReviewed may disclose a users e-mail address as part of a suppression file or do-not-e-mail list to its partners and affiliates to make sure that a users unsubscribe requests are forwarded to the appropriate parties to insure removal of the user from partner and affiliate databases in compliance with law, including without limitation, the Can-Spam Act of 2003.
VI. What are my choices regarding collections, use and distribution of my information?
BrandReviewed may, from time to time, send you email regarding third party promotions, and our, as well as other, products and services. In addition, if you indicated upon registration that you are interested in receiving offers or information from BrandReviewed and our partners, we may occasionally send you direct postal mail about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. Only BrandReviewed (or agents and affiliates working on behalf of BrandReviewed and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct postal mailings and only if you indicated that you do not object to these offers. If you do not wish to receive such postal mailings at any time you can easily send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org along with the information you submitted during your initial registration and that you no longer wish to receive such offers and mailings. You will need your initial registration information including postal address and email address.
On some types of BrandReviewed promotions, we will ask for your email address in order to update you on products and services. When you participate in these types of promotions, you automatically receive promotion-related email from BrandReviewed, its affiliates and business partners, unless you choose the no-email option that some promotions offer. Occasionally these promotion-related email messages may include targeted advertisements.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those BrandReviewed services that require registration in order to participate. These services include, without limitation, BrandReviewed ’s free or contributing memberships and creating a portfolio or cart in any BrandReviewed Site or affiliated family member.
VII. What is BrandReviewed’s policy on allowing me to update, correct, or delete my personally identifiable information?
You may deactivate or delete your BrandReviewed subscription at any time by logging into your BrandReviewed account, and deleting all personal identifying information and clicking update. If you are participating in a BrandReviewed promotion and you wish to quit a promotion and cease receiving promotion-related email, please contact email@example.com, or unsubscribe here.
VIII. What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?
Account information for BrandReviewed members are password-protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, BrandReviewed cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
IX. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
The Site is not intended for use by children. BrandReviewed encourages parents and guardians to be familiar with the web sites that their children visit. The Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") regulates the means by which web site operators collect and use personal information from children under 13, pursuant to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (the "Act"). For more information about the Act and children’s on-line privacy in general, visit the FTC’s web site at https://www.ftc.gov. We also recommend third party software programs to help parents and guardians govern their children's internet viewing options.
X. What else should I know about my privacy?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online (for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas) that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
