26 Brix Privacy Statement
Your privacy is important. We respect your rights, and we will do everything we can to earn and maintain your trust.
Please know that we will never sell your contact information, and we will never provide it to a third party unless required by law or as specifically described below.
Collection of Personal Information
You may choose to give us personal information directly in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give us your name and contact information to communicate with you, to provide you with a subscription or a service, or to do business with us if you are a supplier, business partner, or client. You may provide your credit card details to buy something from us. You may share a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at 26 Brix for which you wish to be considered. If you tell us that you do not want us to use your information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your request, we will respect your wishes.
We may also collect information relating to your use of our websites through the use of various technologies. For example, when you visit our websites, we may log certain information that your browser sends us, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring website addresses. We may also collect information about the pages you view within our sites and other actions you take while visiting us. In addition, we may also use such technologies to determine whether you’ve opened an e-mail or clicked on a link contained in an e-mail. Collecting information in this manner allows us to collect statistics about our website usage and effectiveness and personalize your experience while you are on our websites, as well as tailor our interactions with you.
From time to time, we may also collect information that pertains to you indirectly through other sources, such as list vendors. When we do so, we ask the vendors to confirm that the information was legally acquired by the third party and that we have the right to obtain it from them and use it.
The information that we collect, either directly or indirectly, may be combined to help us improve its overall accuracy and completeness and to help us better tailor our interactions with you.
Use of Personal Information
The following paragraphs describe in more detail how 26 Brix may use your personal information.
Fulfilling Your Transaction Request
If you request something from 26 Brix – for example, a product or service, a callback, or specific marketing materials – we will use the information you provide to fulfill your request. To help us do this, we may share information with others – for instance, 26 Brix business partners, financial institutions, shipping companies, or postal or government authorities involved in fulfillment. In connection with a transaction, we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.
The information you provide to 26 Brix, as well as the information we have collected about you indirectly, may be used by 26 Brix for marketing purposes. Before we do so, however, we will offer you the opportunity to choose whether or not to have your information used in this way. You may at any time choose not to receive marketing materials from us by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each e-mail you may receive, by indicating so when we call you, or by contacting us directly by email or phone. See "Privacy Questions" below.
Some of our offerings may be co-branded – that is, sponsored by both 26 Brix and third parties. If you sign up for these offerings, be aware that your information may also be collected by and shared with those third parties. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with their privacy policies to gain an understanding of the manner in which they will handle information about you.
If you choose to forward an electronic newsletter or a link to a page to a friend or colleague, we may ask for their name and e-mail address.
In connection with a job application or inquiry, whether advertised on a 26 Brix website or otherwise, you may provide us with information about yourself, such as a resume. We may use this information in order to address your inquiry or consider you for employment purposes. Unless you tell us not to do so, we may keep the information for future consideration.
Use of Information in the Social Computing Environment
26 Brix provides social media tools on its websites to enable online sharing and collaboration. These include blogs and other social media platforms. When using these tools, you may be asked to provide certain personal information, such as an email address. Registration information that is not automatically made available to other participants as part of your profile will be subject to and protected in accordance with this privacy statement.
26 Brix reserves the right to disclose your personal information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, or the rights of others, or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our websites.
Information for Suppliers
If you represent a 26 Brix supplier, you may visit sections of the 26 Brix website intended specifically for use by 26 Brix suppliers. We may use the information provided on that site in connection with entering into or performing a transaction with you.
Information Security and Accuracy
We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its accuracy. 26 Brix will implement reasonable physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to help us protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. We also request that our suppliers protect such information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure.
We will retain the personal information you provide us until such time as you request that we remove it from our records. We will retain and use your contact information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
As mentioned above, we collect information from your visits to our websites to help us gather statistics about the usage and effectiveness of our websites, to personalize your experience on our sites, and to tailor our interactions with you.
We may do so through the use of various technologies, including one called cookies. A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as a tag that identifies your computer. While cookies are often only used to measure website usage and effectiveness and to allow for ease of navigation or use and as such, are not associated with any personal information, they are also used at times to personalize a known visitor’s experience to a website by being associated with profile information or user preferences. You can set your browser in most instances to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it or not. You can also generally set your browser to turn off cookies.
We may also make use of technology in marketing e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and links contained within clicked on.
In addition, third-party social media buttons may log certain information such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring website addresses, and, if you are logged in to those social media sites, they may also link such collected information with your profile information on that site. We do not control these third-party tracking technologies.
26 Brix does not deliver third-party online advertisements on our websites but we may advertise our products and services on others’ websites. We may collaborate with website operators as well as network advertisers to do so. Please familiarize yourself with those website operators' or network advertisers' privacy policies to understand their practices relating to advertising, including what type of information they may collect about your Internet usage. 26 Brix does not provide any information relating to your usage of 26 Brix websites to website operators or network advertisers.
Links to Non-26 Brix Web Sites and Third-Party Applications
To allow you to interact with other websites on which you may have accounts (such as Facebook and other social media sites) or join communities on such sites, we may provide links or embed third-party applications that allow you to log in, post content, or join communities from our websites.
We may also provide you with general links to non-26 Brix websites. Your use of these links and applications is subject to the third parties’ privacy policies, and you should become familiar with their privacy policies before using the links or applications. 26 Brix is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those other websites.
In certain cases, you may have the ability to view or edit your personal information online. In the event your information is not accessible online, and you wish to obtain a summary of your personal information which we’re storing, please contact us.
