BrainLine.org is committed to protecting your privacy. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want you to fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the use of the information we collect. All information we collect is confidential. We do not sell or share the data with any other organizations.
Please review the following information to understand how the information you provide will be treated.
The information gathered by BrainLine.org falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to BrainLine.org and (2) tracking information about overall site traffic patterns routinely gathered as visitors navigate through our site.
You are free to visit BrainLine.org.org without identifying yourself. However, if you send us questions using the Contact Us form, or subscribe to our newsletters or alerts, you will need to provide your email address so that a response can be forwarded to you. BrainLine.org does not collect any personally identifying information unless you choose to provide that information to us.
The areas of the site in which we collect information, the information collected, and the purpose for collecting that information are described below:
BrainLine.org offers free electronic newsletters and alerts to users. These newsletters include highlights of the BrainLine.org website content and news of interest to BrainLine.org users. To subscribe, you must provide your email address. To remove yourself from the mailing lists, follow the instructions at the bottom of any newsletter.
By sending email to BrainLine.org using the Contact Us form, you are providing your email address to us; however, we do not use that information for any other purpose other than responding to your individual comments or questions.
BrainLine.org's Web server gathers information about all users collectively, such as what areas users visit most frequently and what services users access most often. BrainLine.org automatically logs IP addresses*, sessions sources, and other data which tracks users' access to BrainLine.org. We analyze these logs to monitor overall system performance and for the overall aggregate trends they reveal about our users, not for the behaviors of individual users.
*Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data. Your IP address does not identify you personally. Most Internet Service Providers use a "dynamic" form of assigning IP Addresses. This means that you may have a different IP Address each time you visit BrainLine.org. Also, many Internet Service Providers, including America Online, use "Proxy servers" which provide even more anonymity for visitors. For example, all visitors accessing BrainLine.org through America Online will be recorded in our access logs as having the same IP Address.
In order to make your user experience more efficient, we use a session cookie. This helps us generate web statistics to continue to build a better user experience in future iterations of the site.
We only use session cookies on BrainLine.org. This means that cookies are not saved to your computer and cease to exist when you close the browser. We do not use persistent cookies (cookies that pass and save information between a client machine and our server).
All of the information is stored on servers at a location designed specifically to ensure that no unauthorized individuals have access to the server or its data.
If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy statement or this website, email us at info@BrainLine.org.
