Privacy and Other Policies
Our goal is to provide you with information, resources, and services relevant and helpful to you, while respecting your right to privacy. In order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we have prepared this statement disclosing the privacy practices for this entire site.
Because we respect your privacy, Brandon's Arms does not automatically collect personal information through this web site. For example, we do not enable cookies and do not use other software or hardware techniques to collect personal information on you without your knowledge. During the process of delivering our content and information to you, we do not automatically collect any personally identifiable information about you such as name, address, phone number, or e-mail address. However, we do obtain some types of non-personally identifiable information such as the Internet Service Provider you use to connect to the Internet, your browser type, or the type of computer operating system you use (Macintosh or Windows, for example). The information collected by us is used for the purpose of analyzing aggregate use of the website.
We log IP addresses - that is, the location of a site visitor's computer or network on the Internet - only for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. In other words, our site includes software that lets us track how many people are coming onto our site, and from which search engines or web pages. This lets us know which information is of interest to visitors, and how they found that information. But we do not automatically collect your name or other personal information.
We also use IP addresses in the aggregate to track which pages people visit in order to assess which content people read most frequently, and to improve the quality of the site. We do not use such data to develop profiles of individual visitors to our web site. There is no personal information collected in our log files. We evaluate site usage by analyzing user information in the aggregate, but this analysis does not identify any individual user.
When you contact us
We maintain some records of individuals who contact us for information via our website in case we need to contact you later or provide further information in the future. For example, if you send us an email, we may file your note to us, so that we can respond to you. However, we do not provide this information to anyone else unless you give us your permission or unless disclosure is required by law.
When you contribute money
If you choose to make a charitable contribution to Brandon's Arms, we use the information collected from you to process payments. Personal information may be shared with third party service providers (e.g., merchant banks) during this process. We need to share this information in order to process credit card contributions.
No legal advice or attorney-client relationship
Please understand that the information on this website is not intended as either legal or medical advice. Please also understand that sending us an electronic e-mail does not mean that you have established an attorney-client relationship with Brandon's Arms or any attorney. Please remember also that e-mail is not necessarily a secure or confidential form of communication. That is one reason why we do not accept requests for legal assistance via e-mail.
Children's online privacy protection
We do not collect any information about users' ages, and do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from individual users under the age of 18 without parental or guardian permission. No form should be filled out by any child without first getting permission by his or her parent or legal guardian. We encourage parents to be with their children on the Internet and to supervise their children when submitting any form of information over the Internet.
No advertising or endorsements
This site is funded by Brandon's Arms, a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization that has applied to the IRS for recognition as a tax-exempt organization. This site does not accept commercial advertising. While this site may contain links to other sites, Brandon's Arms is not responsible for the privacy practices of or the content of such sites. Linkage from our site is not intended to imply that we endorse any other group, its site, or its policies or practices.
