Privacy Policy

In brief, you’ll want to note that this website acts no different than all other websites. I will collect data for analytics purposes, I will try to sell you stuff, and all articles, comments, and other musings are those of the article or comment author.

For normal people the above should suffice, for lawyers keep reading…

This privacy policy extends to the website bradonomics.com and all authors associated with the website (hereafter “bradonomics.com,” “Bradonomics,” “we,” “us,” “the site” or “our site”). This Privacy Policy describes the information collected on the site and how it’s used, the choices you can make about your information and how we protect your information.

How information is gathered

How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of bradonomics.com or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of bradonomics.com. Like most websites, bradonomics.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your username and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting bradonomics.com. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your username and password, and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.

What is done with collected information

Like other Web publishers, bradonomics.com collects information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.

Aggregated information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). Aggregated information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any personally identifiable information about you or allow anyone to identify you.

We may use personally identifiable information collected on bradonomics.com to communicate with you about your registration and customization preferences, services and products offered by bradonomics.com and other topics we think you might find of interest.

Personally identifiable information collected by bradonomics.com may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law (assuming anyone knows what that is). In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements

Bradonomics.com expects its partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. Be aware, however, that third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on bradonomics.com, pages or posts or certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through bradonomics.com you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, websites, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. Bradonomics.com is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.

While on our site, our advertisers, promotional partners or other third parties may use cookies or other technology to attempt to identify some of your preferences or retrieve information about you. For example, some of our advertising is served by third parties and may include cookies that enable the advertiser to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before. Other features available on our site may offer services operated by third parties and may use cookies or other technology to gather information. bradonomics.com does not control the use of this technology by third parties or the resulting information, and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of bradonomics.com and this policy.

Website use by children

Bradonomics.com does not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from or about children under the age of 13 except as permitted by law. If we discover we have received any information from a child under 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe bradonomics.com has any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact [email protected]
