BrainSpec Privacy Policy

 

Last Updated: April 12, 2024

 

BrainSpec Inc. (“BrainSpec”), the owner of the brainspecmed.com website (the “Website”), is committed to protecting your privacy.  This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for BrainSpec and applies solely to information collected by the Website. This Privacy Policy is current as of the Effective Date set forth above. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, so please be sure to check back periodically. Your use of the Website following these changes means that you accept the revised Privacy Policy.

“Personal Information,” as used in this Privacy Policy, is any information about you that can be used to identify you. This includes information about you as a person (such as name and email address), your devices, purchase details, and even information about how you use the Website.

In the event the Website contains links to third-party sites and services, please be aware that those sites and services have their own privacy policies. After following a link to any third-party content, you should read their posted privacy policy information about how they collect and use Personal Information. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any of your activities after you leave our Website.

 This Privacy Policy will notify you of the following:

 

  • What Personal Information is collected from you through the Website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  • What choices are available to you regarding the use of your Personal Information.
  • The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your Personal Information.
  • How you can correct any inaccuracies in your Personal Information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the Personal Information collected on this Website. We only have access to/collect Personal Information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this Personal Information to anyone.   We will use your Personal Information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your Personal Information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request or contact you about changes, enhancements, or additions to our products and services. Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this Privacy Policy.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our Website:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your Personal Information.

Security

We take precautions to protect your Personal Information. When you submit Personal Information via the Website, it is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect Personal Information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

 

We take great care in implementing, enforcing and maintaining the security of our Website and users’ Personal Information. BrainSpec implements, enforces and maintains security policies to prevent the unauthorized or accidental access to or destruction, loss, modification, use or disclosure of Personal Information and to monitor compliance of such policies on an ongoing basis. All information is stored with logical separation from information of other customers. However, we do not guarantee that unauthorized access will never occur.

 

We use a combination of processes, technology and physical security controls to help protect Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Each server is protected by a firewall, exposing it only to the minimum ports necessary. However, no security controls are 100% effective, and we cannot completely ensure or warrant the security of your Personal Information.

 

BrainSpec may use third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to operate the Website. We seek to obtain confidentiality agreements that are consistent with this Privacy Policy and that limit others’ use or disclosure of your Personal Information.

 

While we use encryption to protect Personal Information transmitted online, we also protect your Personal Information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

How Long We Keep Your Personal Information

We keep your personal information only for as long as we need to. This time period may depend on what we are using your information for, in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If your personal information is no longer required for this purpose, we will delete it or make it anonymous by removing all details that identify you.  For example, we may need to use it to answer your queries about a product or service and as a result may keep Personal Information while you are still using our product or services. However, if necessary, we may retain your personal information for our compliance with a legal, accounting, or reporting obligation or for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific, or historical research purposes or statistical purposes.

Do We Disclose Any Personal Information to Outside Parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personal Information. We may release your information when demanded by governmental authorities and we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our Website policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety, to the extent permitted by law.  

Where Is Your Information Stored?

We store your Personal Information on our servers located in the United States.

Information for European data subjects 

When we receive information directly from visitors to the Website who are citizens or residents of countries in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), that information is likely to include “personal information,” as regulated by the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation or substantially equivalent laws of the United Kingdom or Switzerland (collectively, the “GDPR”). As the recipient of this information (generally just contact information), we are a “data controller” under the GDPR.  As such, we will use that information only for the limited purpose of providing information about our products and services until the person who submitted the information no longer wishes that to occur, and anyone who submits personal information to the Website consents to our use of that data for those purposes.

 

Data subjects’ rights

As mandated by the GDPR, you can contact us with regard to the following rights in relation to your Personal Information:

  • If you would like to have a copy of the Personal Information, we hold regarding you or if you think that we hold incorrect Personal Information about you, BrainSpec will honor your request.
  • Where you have provided us with consent to use your Personal Information, you can withdraw this at any time (but please note that, if you use the BrainSpec service, we may continue to use your Personal Information, including to contact you in connection with the service for as long as you use it).
  • You also have the right to ask us to delete your Personal Information or restrict how it is used. There may be exceptions to the right to erasure for specific legal reasons which, if applicable, we will set out for you in response to your request. Where applicable, you have the right to object to processing of your Personal Information for certain purposes.

If you want to make any of these requests, please contact us using the contact information provided below.

We are committed to working with you to obtain a fair resolution of any complaint or concern about privacy.

Transfer of personal information

In the unlikely event that we transfer your Personal Information out of the EEA, the United Kingdom or Switzerland, we put in place at least one of these safeguards:

  • We will only transfer your Personal Information to countries that have been found to provide an adequate level of protection for Personal Information.
  • We may also use specific approved contracts with our service providers that are based in countries outside the EEA. These contracts give your Personal Information the same protection it has in the EEA.

But please understand that, if you use the Website or the BrainSpec service on behalf of your employer, we will comply with any contractual requirements between us and your employer governing our use of any Personal Information you submit.

We may transfer your Personal Information to the United States of America for the following reasons:

  • To provide the BrainSpec service to you, if you are or become a customer
  • To store your Personal Information
  • To communicate with you
  • To monitor the behavior of visitors to the Website.

California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

Because we value your privacy, we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your Personal Information to outside parties without your consent, except as provided above in this Privacy Policy. We will never sell your Personal Information to a third party.

Unsubscribe

To unsubscribe from our email database or opt-out of communications (including marketing communications), please contact us using the details provided in this privacy policy, or opt-out using the opt-out facilities provided in the communication. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity.

Business Transfers

If we or our assets are acquired, we would include data, including your personal information, among the assets transferred to any parties who acquire us. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any parties who acquire us may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, continue to use your personal information according to this policy, which they will be required to assume as it is the basis for any ownership or use rights we have over such information.

Use of Cookies

Our privacy policy covers the use of cookies between your device and our servers. A cookie is a small piece of data that a Service may store on your device, typically containing a unique identifier that allows the Service servers to recognize your device when you use the Service; information about your account, session and/or device; additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and any self-maintenance information about the cookie itself.

We use cookies to track Website usage and performance on your device, to tailor your experience of our Website based on your preferences, and to serve advertising to your device. Any communication of cookie data between your device and our servers occurs within a secure environment.

Do-Not-Track Signals

Certain web browsers and other devices you may use to access the Website may permit you to indicate your preference that you do not wish to be “tracked” online. At this time we do not modify the Information we collect from you through the Website.

Children’s Privacy

We do not aim any of our products or services directly at children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information about children under 13.
