BrainPit.com cares about the privacy of each user of its Web site (“user” or “you”), including those who trust us enough to place orders.
We take your privacy seriously. This policy describes what personal information we collect and how we use it. In order to protect the privacy of its users, BrainPit.com has adopted the following policy:
I. General Information

Cookies and Web Beacons
Controlling Your Privacy
Note that you can change your browser settings to disable cookies if you have privacy concerns. Disabling cookies for all sites is not recommended as it may interfere with your use of some sites. The best option is to disable or enable cookies on a per-site basis. Consult your browser documentation for instructions on how to block cookies and other tracking mechanisms.
III. Use/Sharing of Personal Information
Your name, shipping and billing addresses, and credit card number(s) are used by BrainPit.com in order to provide you with the services that you may purchase from us. We use your email address to provide you with information about those services including status, and we may occasionally send out emails, including newsletters, to people who have placed an order from us, offering them more great deals.
Your phone number is used by BrainPit.com only in the event that our customer service representatives need to contact you about an order you have placed.
Personal Information is used internally in connection with BrainPit.com’s business, including internal promotional, marketing and advertising efforts, in a manner which does not readily identify a user to any third party.
BrainPit.com does not share with any third party any Personal Information that could readily identify any user. BrainPit.com will not divulge any user’s credit card information to any third party without such user’s prior consent.
Routine Information Collection
All web servers track basic information about their visitors. This information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses, browser details, timestamps and referring pages. None of this information can personally identify specific visitors to this site. The information is tracked for routine administration and maintenance purposes, and lets me know what pages and information are useful and helpful to visitors.
Credit Card Security
The Internet is a vast network of computers. Because the data passes from computer to computer, some Internet shoppers worry that unauthorized persons may intercept the data and gain access to credit card numbers. All credit card numbers we obtain from our customers are used solely for the purpose identified by the purchaser of our services. The card numbers are destroyed after 60 days. Taking the steps below will lower the chances of interception of your credit card number:
Limit your online shopping to Internet merchants with sites equipped with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL prevents unauthorized people from intercepting your data.
Use a browser, such as Firefox or Internet Explorer, that supports SSL. These browsers show a symbol in the status bar, such as a key or lock, when you are on a site that uses SSL. Most banks will cover the cost of fraud resulting from unauthorized use of your credit card or may limit your liability.
Credit card information collected by BrainPit.com is encrypted through Secure Sockets Layer before it is transmitted over the Internet.
IV. Preventing the Use of Personal Information
If you would like to make sure that we do not share your Personal Information with third parties, just use the Contact Us form with a message that states, “Do not share personal information” in the subject field.

If you do not want to receive promotional emails about BrainPit.com, please use the Contact Us form with a message that states, “Do not share personal information” in the subject field.

Another way to let us know you do not want BrainPit.com to share any of your Personal Information with third parties is to “opt out” when setting up your account. When providing your account information, simply uncheck the box on the notice that asks whether you would like to receive email updates about our new features, services and special offers, and we will not share your Personal Information with any third party, nor will we send you any promotional information via email.
Any existing subscriber can opt out of any of our marketing email campaigns that may exist by sending us an email requesting that we eliminate your email address from any further marketing correspondence.
