Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy

Style and Design LLC ("Style and Design") operates several websites including BrownCafe.com. It is Style and Design's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Style and Design collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Style and Design's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Style and Design's visitors use its website. From time to time, Style and Design may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Style and Design also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Style and Design only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Style and Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Style and Design's behalf or to provide services available at Style and Design's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Style and Design's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Style and Design will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Style and Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Style and Design believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Style and Design, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Style and Design website and have supplied your email address, Style and Design may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Style and Design and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Style and Design takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers

If Style and Design, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Style and Design goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Style and Design may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
