We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect personal information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not distribute, sell or rent this information to anyone.

Like many other Web sites, www.friendsbrp.org makes use of log files. These files merely log visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting service’s analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
We request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
We believe it is important to provide added protection for children online. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to observe, participate in and/or monitor and guide their online activity. www.friendsbrp.org does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian believes that www.friendsbrp.org has in its database the personally-identifiable information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately by email or phone and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time by contacting us via email or phone.
You can do the following at any time by contacting us:
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you.

We take 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 (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, material / product shipping, contact responses) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
