Brand Registry Group Privacy and Cookies Policy

The BRG takes your privacy very seriously, and as such we take all appropriate steps to limit the risk that your personal information is lost, damaged or misused.

This BRG Privacy and Cookies Policy, together with the BRG Website Terms of Use, covers how the BRG collects, uses and stores your personal information.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to identify you as an individual.

We collect personal information directly from you and your organisation. You may be asked to provide your personal information by filling out a form on the BRG Website, accessing certain members’ areas on the BRG Website, or if you contact the BRG via the website or otherwise. You are not required to provide any personal information to access and use the main BRG Website pages.

We collect your personal information you provide to us via the website- your name, address, email and other details. The BRG does not collect and store personal information on how individuals use the BRG Website via an internet protocol (IP) address. We may collect statistical data about users’ browsing actions and patterns that do not identify any individual.

Any personal information and data stored on the BRG Website may be transferred to and stored at a location inside or outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating inside or outside the EEA who work for the BRG. We take all reasonable steps necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with the BRG privacy policy.

 

Use of Your Personal Information

Any information the BRG collects is to allow the BRG to contact you about the BRG and its related activities you requested.

If you are a BRG member, the BRG will use your personal information to issue you a member’s login information and password for access to the Members section of the website.

The BRG uses your personal information to carry out business with you as a BRG member, prospective member, or a visitor to the BRG website. We seek to update you about changes to the BRG and its website, to provide information to you (for example, information on a BRG event), and to ensure that content on the BRG website is presented effectively. The BRG will hold your personal information on our systems for only as long as is necessary to provide you with services as set out above.

The BRG will use your personal information within the BRG and will only share it outside the BRG where you have requested it or given your consent. The BRG may use third parties to process your information on the BRG’s behalf (for example to provide services or analysis). The BRG requires these third parties to comply strictly with BRG instructions and not use your personal information other than for BRG purposes. The BRG will not otherwise disclose your personal information except where disclosure is required or permitted by law, to enforce our Terms of Use, or to protect the rights, property or safety of the BRG, its members or others. As the BRG Website is accessible globally, local terms and laws from where you access the site may apply.
