What information do we collect, and how do we collect it?
Brixmor and our third-party service providers (“Contractors”) may collect certain information from or about you in connection with your use of, or your submissions to or via, the Site (together, “Collected Information”), including, but not limited to, your name, title, email address, postal address, company, telephone numbers and business information of interest. For example, some areas of the Site may include registration forms that require users to provide some or all of the foregoing information. In addition, we and our Contractors may retain the content of, and metadata regarding, any correspondence you may have with us or our representatives, regardless of the mode of communication by which such correspondence was made. This information helps us to improve the Site and the online content, materials, and services that we make available on the Site, and to more effectively and efficiently respond to both current and future inquiries.
In addition, the Collected Information may reveal such things as the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address assigned to your computer, specific pages that you access on the Site or prior to or after visiting the Site, and the length of time you spend at the Site. We and our Contractors may use this information to help administer the Site and the servers that provide the Site, generate statistical information, monitor and analyze Site traffic and usage patterns, and improve the Site’s content and content delivery, including any online content, materials, and services that we describe or make available on the Site.
In addition, our Site may send one or more “cookies” to your computer to improve the utility of the Site by storing user preferences and tracking user trends (also deemed “Collected Information” hereunder). Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Please note that you may not be able to access the full functionality of our Site if cookies are disabled on your browser.
We do not knowingly accept personal information from any minors. If you let us know that a user of the Site is under age 18 by contacting us at email@example.com, we will immediately remove all Collected Information regarding that user from our records and will not disclose that information to any other companies.
How will we use the information you provide to us?
In addition to the uses described above, we and our Contractors may use Collected Information to analyze and improve the content, materials, and services that we make available on the Site, to notify you of changes made to the Site, to evaluate user needs and improve the Site content, to send you promotional materials, to administer the products, services and programs that you have selected, and support our continuing efforts to offer users the information and services we think they want most. We use Collected Information from registration forms on the Site to send you information related to our properties, business and services. We also use your e-mail address as a unique identifier in our record system to verify communications from you and to send you information, newsletters and promotional offerings. In addition, if you contact us for support or assistance, we may use Collected Information to provide service and support to you. We may also use Collected Information and the associated statistical data we and our Contractors generate to deliver targeted content to you and other visitors of our Site.
With whom do we share the information we collect?
We may share Collected Information with certain of our Contractors (e.g., our web hosting provider) in order to provide the Site to you. We may also share Collected Information with some of our business and marketing partners in furthering our mission as an organization or delivering the content, materials, and services available on or through the Site to you. We and our Contractors may also produce reports on Site traffic, usage patterns, and similar data generated from Collected Information, and we may share these reports with our business and marketing partners and others.
We may disclose Collected Information to the proper authorities if we become subject to a subpoena or court order or if we believe that we are otherwise legally required to disclose such information. We may also use and disclose information about you to establish or exercise our legal rights, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person.
If all or part of Brixmor is sold, merged, or otherwise transferred to another entity, we may transfer Collected Information to such entity as part of that transaction.
What choices do you have?
When corresponding with Brixmor or our representatives, or when making a request for information or otherwise interacting with us or others through the Site, you choose what information to supply, what questions or comments to submit, whether you wish to receive further information, and by what method of communication such information should be delivered. Please take care to share only such information as is needed or that you believe is appropriate. You are under no obligation to provide us with personally identifiable information, but without it we may not be able to provide you the products or services you request. You may contact us as indicated below if at any time you would like to ask us about our data collection and information security practices. As required by law, at any time, you may opt out of receiving commercial emails from us in the future.
How do we protect information collected about you?
What about linked websites?
Brixmor has links to other web sites. Be aware that other sites may collect data and personal information and operate according to their own privacy practices. Please remember that, once outside of the Site, any information you submit is outside of our control.
We may change this Notice.
Location of this Site.
This Site is hosted and operated in the United States. However, we and our Contractors may, in our effort to provide the Site, store Collected Information in the United States, or we may transfer it to, and store it within, other countries.
Those who access or use the Site from jurisdictions outside the United States do so at their own choice and risk and are solely responsible for compliance with local law. If you are not a resident of the United States, you acknowledge and agree that we may collect and use your personal information outside your home jurisdiction, and that we may store your personal information in the United States or elsewhere. Please note that the level of legal protection provided in the United States or other non-European countries from which you may access our Site may not be as stringent as that under European Union privacy standards or the privacy laws of some other countries, possibly including your home jurisdiction.
