This policy does not apply to such third party websites and we are not responsible for the content on those websites or their privacy practices. We encourage you to review the terms of use and privacy policies of every website you visit if you have any concerns.

In addition, please note that your personal information may be processed in the country in which it was collected, and in other countries where laws regarding processing of personal information may be less stringent than other countries.

“Personal Information” for the purposes of privacy law is information about an identifiable individual, such as their name, address, telephone number and email address. Personal Information does not include aggregated information that is anonymous, such as the type of browser you are using, or other non-personally identifiable information.

What happens to your information? 

Your information is collected when it is voluntarily provided, such as when you subscribe to the newsletter. Your name and email address is stored by us for further use.

There are other types of non-personally identifiable information that we may collect.
Bren On The Road uses “cookies”. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer about their usage patterns. The use of cookies and similar technologies allows us to identify repeat users, collect non-personal demographic information, and also administer and make improvements.

Use: We may use your information to contact you for marketing or other purposes.

Protection: Only individuals who are involved in the administration of the website’s operations have access to your Personal Information (currently this is only myself: Brendan!). Despite our best efforts, Internet or wireless transmissions are never completely private or secure. In that respect, you hereby acknowledge and accept the potential risk of inadvertent disclosure due to any such disclosure beyond our reasonable control. In addition, please note some of our service providers may be located in countries where authorized government officials may lawfully be able to access your Personal Information without your knowledge or consent pursuant to the laws of such countries.

Other than for the specific purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, we will not disclose your Personal Information to any third party companies unless we obtain your prior consent or are legally compelled to do so.
