The extent and type of information we receive from you on our websites depends on the information you provide to us through our contact mailboxes and via online submission forms. We only use your personally identifiable information to respond to your requests and to provide you with information about BrightLine’s services, products, and events, unless we obtain your permission to use your personal information for other purposes. For example, if you send us an e-mail message requesting to be on our mailing list, we will use your e-mail address and other information you supply to respond to your request. If you send us a resume to apply online for a position with BrightLine, we will use the information provided to match you with available opportunities.
If you visit our websites to read or download information, such as news stories or articles, much of the information we do collect is statistical only (e.g., the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our website) and not personally identifiable.
The personal information you provide to us will be retained only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected or as required by law. We do not share personal information with third parties except as necessary to carry out our business or as required by law or other legal processes, and we never sell your personal information.
In addition, BrightLine has security policies and procedures in place to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or unintentional destruction. Our personnel who have access to the data have been trained to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
BrightLine understands the importance of protecting children’s privacy, especially in an online environment.
