3. Use of Information

See the Privacy Notice of Strongbrook for information on how Strongbrook may share your personal information and how you can limit such sharing.

4. Cookies

Like many websites, the Site uses “cookie” technology. A “cookie” is a small data file transferred to your computer’s hard drive that allows a website to respond to you as an individual, gathering and remembering information about your preferences. When you first connect to the Site, the cookie identifies your browser with a unique, random number. The cookies Strongbrook uses do not reveal any personal information about you, except perhaps your first name so Strongbrook can welcome you on your next visit. Cookies help Strongbrook understand which parts of the Site are the most popular, where visitors are going, and how long they spend there. Strongbrook uses cookies to study traffic patterns on the Site so Strongbrook can make the Site even better.

5. Data Security

Strongbrook intends to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that Strongbrook has collected from you. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and while Strongbrook strives to protect your personal information, Strongbrook cannot guarantee or warrant complete security. Strongbrook uses a variety of current technologies and processes for protection of data. Strongbrook limits the information Strongbrook provides to outside companies with whom Strongbrook contracts to only what they need to carry out their responsibilities. When you make a purchase on the Site, your transactional information is transmitted in a safe, encrypted format.

6. Third Party Websites

The Site may provide hyperlinks, which are highlighted words or pictures within a hypertext document that, when clicked, take you to another place within the document, to another document altogether, or to other web sites not controlled by Strongbrook. These hyperlinked web sites may contain privacy provisions that are different from those provided herein. Strongbrook is not responsible for the collection, use, or disclosure of information collected through these web sites or links, and Strongbrook expressly disclaims any and all liability related to such collection, use, or disclosure.

7. Disclosure Required By Law & Other Disclosure

Strongbrook reserves the right (and you authorize Strongbrook) to share or disclose your personal information when Strongbrook determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of such information is necessary or appropriate:

· To enforce our rights against you or in connection with a breach by you of this Privacy Policy or the Terms and Conditions;
· To prevent prohibited or illegal activities; or
· When required by any applicable law, rule regulation, subpoena or other legal process.
Personal information may be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, reorganization or other change of control. If Strongbrook sells, merges or transfers any part of its business, part of the sale may include your personal information. If so, you will be asked if you’d like to stop receiving promotional information following any change of control.

8. Email Communications

Strongbrook may allow users to subscribe to email newsletters and from time to time may transmit emails promoting Strongbrook’s or third-party goods or services.

You have the ability to opt-out of receiving our promotional emails and to terminate newsletter subscriptions by following the instructions in the emails. Opting out in this manner will not end transmission of certain service-related emails.
