Our Commitment to Privacy
The Information We Collect
This notice applies to information collected or submitted on the BRA website. Our web server is not set up to generally track, collect or distribute personal information about its visitors. It does recognise the IP address of visitors, but not email addresses. For example, we can tell which Internet Service Provider visitors use, but not the names, addresses or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our sites. This information is used only for internal purposes. For example, we compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to the site, the daily requests we receive for particular pages or files on our web site, what countries those requests come from, the browser type and computer/tablet/phone type used.
If you search for something on the site, we may log the search terms used. Similarly, if you use a search engine such as Google to find our site, we may be able to tell what terms you were searching for.
These aggregated statistics are used to better provide services to the members and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
We do not process payments on our website or collect payment information directly from the website.
A cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file that is placed on your computer. It is generated by the server that operates our website and can be used by that server whenever you visit the site.
You can manage the cookies on your computer and can disable them if you wish. Find out more about managing your cookies here.
Periodically we send email and newsletter updates to member’s registered email addresses. These may be personalised to each member, so that we can better identify which news stories members choose to read, allowing the society to better understand the interests and concerns of the membership. We are currently in the process of moving our newsletters to MailChimp, at which time we’ll be able to include an “Unsubscribe” button. Until then, newsletters are sent through Alyce Chadwell. If you wish to Unsubscribe from our newsletters, please fill out the form below!
The Way We Use Information
We do not sell, trade, exchange or otherwise make available any personally identifiable information to any other company or organisation. We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose or shared with outside parties.
