Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us at B. Brown Consulting, LLC. Here are a few principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT:

CONTACT FORMS:
The contact forms on our site are available for you to correspond with our team regarding an interview with our blog, or to request an update of information on published articles. The contact forms may also be used for general inquiries about our blog. We use the information that you provide in the forms to contact you through email to address your inquiries.

COMMENTS:
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. This data is only visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

MEDIA:
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

COOKIES:
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

EMBEDDED CONTENT FROM OTHER WEBSITES:
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

WHO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH:

ANALYTICS:
We currently use third-party plugins to view traffic, browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request to our website. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how B. Brown Consulting, LLC’s visitors use its website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

NEWSLETTER OPT-IN:
If you would like to receive e-mail updates about upcoming content on our blog you may opt-in, or “subscribe” to our newsletter. Currently our forms are set to only ask for your first and last name, email address, and agency/organization.

HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA:
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

WHAT RIGHTS YOU HAVE OVER YOUR DATA:
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

WHERE WE SEND YOUR DATA:
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA:
B. Brown Consulting, LLC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on B.

If you are a registered user of B. Brown Consulting, LLC.’s website and have supplied your email address, B. Brown Consulting, LLC. may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with the company and our products.
