What kind of information does Brunette Publishing collect?

When you order from our website, we need to know information such as your name, email address, billing address, phone number and credit card number. We need this information so we can process and fill your order and contact you if we have any questions. Please note we do not store credit card details. Now and then, we may conduct surveys, run competitions or other promotions. If you choose to participate in one of our surveys or competitions, we'll probably ask for some personal information such as your shopping habits, email address and other information so that we can run the promotion and notify you if you win. When you send us a request, such as to our customer service department, we may ask you to identify yourself by name or email address in order to send you a response, if appropriate.

How does Brunette Publishing use my information?

When you place an order on our website, we use your information to process and fill your order. We will send you an email to confirm or to update you on your order. We may also need to contact you by regular mail, email or phone if we have any questions about your order. When you order, create an account, complete a survey or participate in a competition or promotion on our website, we will use the information to send an email or regular mail to you about our products, services or other competitions and promotions you might be interested in, unless you indicate that you do not wish to receive such mail.

Does Brunette Publishing share this information with anyone else?

No, your personal information is for the information of Brunette Publishing and its associated trusted third party service providers only. These third parties provide specific services and administer activities offered at our website, such as customer service. These third parties are not authorised to discuss, disclose or make any use of your personal information except as necessary to provide such services. We, or our third party service providers, may disclose specific individual information if we or they reasonably believe that it's necessary to comply with applicable laws or regulations, or to protect the interests of Brunette Publishing, our business partners, affiliates or its guests, or the interests of our third party service providers.

How long will you retain my information?

Brunette Publishing keeps your personal information for only as long as required to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. In some cases, such as credit card purchases, we are required by law to keep your personal information for a specified period of time. For those customers who have registered for the mailing list, their personal information is kept until we are notified that they no longer want their information stored.

How is my personal information protected?

Only staff members who need your personal information in order to respond to your requests are given access to it. (Employees are provided with training and information regarding the proper handling of personal information.) All information stored in our computer system is protected from unauthorised access and information that is stored in document form is kept in secure locations to prevent access by unauthorised persons.

How does Brunette Publishing use cookies and pixel tags?

We collect visitor information by using cookies and pixel tags. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can send to your browser and may then be stored on your computer's hard drive to help our site recognise you when you return to our website. It acts as an anonymous tag that identifies your computer, but not you personally. Cookies are used as a standard practice by most websites. Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies; you can usually change your browser settings to refuse cookies, but you may experience difficulties while shopping online. A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our website, but not on your computer. When you access these pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of that visit. They usually work in conjunction with cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a particular page. If you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit.
