Who we are 

Our website address is: https://www.vanbruntco.com.

Van Brunt & Company is committed to protecting the privacy of our website visitors. This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, and safeguard personal information obtained through our website.

How We Use Your Information 

We may use the personal information you provide to respond to your inquiries, process transactions, send periodic emails, or provide you with information about our products and services.

Non-personal information may be used to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements around the site, and gather demographic information.

Information We Collect 

Personal Information: We may collect personal information such as names, email addresses, phone numbers, and mailing addresses when voluntarily submitted by visitors through contact forms or other interactive features on our website.

Non-Personal Information: We also collect non-personal information automatically when you visit our website, including your IP address, browser type, operating system, referring website, pages viewed, and access times. This information is used for statistical purposes and to improve the functionality and content of our website.

Comments 

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media 

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies 

Our website may use cookies to enhance the user experience. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer that track and store information about your preferences. You can choose to disable cookies through your browser settings, but this may affect the functionality of certain features on our website.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites 

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with 

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

Third-Party Disclosure 

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to outside parties without your consent, except as required by law or to service providers who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users.

How long we retain your data 

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data 

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent 

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Data Security 

We implement appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information.

Changes to This Privacy Policy 

We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes will be posted on this page, and the updated Privacy Policy will be effective upon posting.

Your Consent 

By using our website, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions or concerns about our Privacy Policy, please contact us at 469-310-4000.
