Users at that time shall have the option as to whether to permit the use of their information in this separate manner.

Please note that this Policy does not govern the collection and use of information by companies that Faith Popcorn’s BrainReserve does not control, nor by individuals not employed or managed by us. If you visit a website that we mention or link to, be sure to review its privacy policy before providing the site with information.

Faith Popcorn’s BrainReserve may use your personal information in the performance of any contract we enter into with you, to comply with legal obligations, or where FPBR has a legitimate business interest in using your information to enhance the services and products we provide. Legitimate business purposes include but are not limited to one or all of the following: providing direct marketing and assessing the effectiveness of promotions and advertising; modifying, improving or personalizing our services, products and communications; conducting data analytics; or otherwise keeping our site safe and secure.

In addition, we may use your information in the following ways (after obtaining your consent, if required):

This means that, unless information must be retained for legal or archival purposes, personal information will be securely destroyed, put beyond use or erased from FPBR’s systems when it is no longer required or, where applicable, following a request from you to destroy or erase your personal information.

Please note, FPBR uses various third-party social media features including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube and other interactive programs. These may collect your IP address and require cookies to work properly. These services are governed by the privacy policies of the providers and are not within Faith Popcorn’s BrainReserve’s control. Therefore, we encourage all users and visitors to be aware when they leave our website and to read the privacy statements of every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies only and solely to the information collected by our website.

DISCLOSURE AND SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION

Faith Popcorn’s BrainReserve will not disclose to or share your personal information with any unaffiliated third party except as follows:

  • Where necessary in connection with services provided by third parties (i) who provide us with a wide range of office, administrative, information technology, production, payment, or business management services, and (ii) who are required to comply with this policy;
  • Where you voluntarily provide information in response to an advertisement from a third party;
  • Where your consent has been provided, with a third party such as an academic institution, employer, business, or other entity which has provided you with access to a product or service through an integration or access code, information may be shared regarding your engagement with the service or product, results of assessments taken and other information you input into the product or service;
  • Where FPBR is required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities and government agencies, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements; to comply with a subpoena or other legal process; and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or the rights, property or safety of our services, users, or others; and
  • Where all or substantially all of the business or assets of FPBR relating to our services are sold, assigned, or transferred to another entity.

If necessary in connection with providing publishing services on behalf of third parties, such as institutions and societies, FPBR may disclose navigational and transactional information in the form of anonymous, aggregate usage statistics and demographics information that does not reveal your identity or personal information.

SECURITY

Faith Popcorn’s BrainReserve takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (e.g. credit card information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the webpage.

FPBR also uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for authentication and private communications to build users’ trust and confidence in the internet and website use by providing simple and secure access and communication of credit card and personal information.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. We train our employees about the importance of maintaining the confidentiality and security of your information. 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 and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. This is all done to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of the user’s personal information under our control.

Notice to European Union Users

Faith Popcorn’s BrainReserve’s operations are located primarily in the United States. If you provide information to us, the information will be transferred out of the European Union (EU) and sent to the United States. (The adequacy decision on the EU-US Privacy became operational on August 1, 2016. This framework protects the fundamental rights of anyone in the EU whose personal data is transferred to the United States for commercial purposes. It allows the free transfer of data to companies that are certified in the US under the Privacy Shield.) By providing personal information to us, you are consenting to its storage and use as described in this Policy.

DISCLOSURE IN CHAT ROOMS OR FORUMS

You should be aware that identifiable personal information — such as your name or e-mail address — that you voluntarily disclose and that is accessible to other users (e.g. on social media, forums, bulletin boards, or in chat areas) could be collected and disclosed by others. FPBR cannot take any responsibility for such collection and disclosure.

COOKIES

As is true of most websites, FPBR gathers certain information automatically. This information may include IP addresses, browser types, Internet service providers (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating systems, date/time stamps, and/or clickstream data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the site.

FPBR and its partners use cookies or similar technologies to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Changing your cookie settings, including deletion and disabling them, may mean that some of the functions on our website may not operate correctly or may limit your use of certain features, functions, or areas on our website.
