How do we share your information?
We do not share your personally-identifiable information with outside marketers except as described in this section. We may share your information with our partners to enhance your experience. (For example, through our partnerships with other companies, you may receive information or offers regarding products or services in which you have previously expressed an interest and/or selected promotional offers that may be of interest to you.) In certain circumstances, we may share your information with service providers, only when such access is necessary to provide operational or other support services. Those service providers agree to maintain confidentiality and security of your information. Griffin Direct Online may also provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it. In some instances, we may access or disclose your information to protect or defend our own legal rights, to guard against fraud, and/or to protect the safety and security of other customers/users.
How do we protect your data?
We take safety measures to safeguard your personal information. When you submit sensitive information through our website, the information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks you to enter sensitive information (such as name, address, or credit card number), that information is encrypted and protected with the current industry standard encryption protocol known as “secure socket layer” or “SSL.” While on a secure page, such as our order form, a lock icon appears on the bottom or top of your web browsers. Secure web pages also have URL’s (Uniform Resource Locator) that start with https:// instead of http://.
In addition to using SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also take reasonable measures to protect your information off-line. Other than information that is shared (as described in the “How do we share your information” section above), your personally-identifiable information referenced above is restricted in our offices. Within our offices, access to your information is granted to our employees/auditors for the sole purpose of performing specific jobs that relate to our business. Employees are instructed on the importance we place on privacy, and when new policies are implemented, we stress the steps employees should take to ensure that our customers’
information is safeguarded. Finally, the servers on which we store personal information are kept in a secure environment, accessible only to authorized employees.
In addition, the Griffin Direct Online Sites, do not knowingly solicit or collect personally identifiable information online from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If Browns Establishment learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information online without parental consent, it will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from its databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law).
