BRMB may also use targeted advertising service providers to tailor BRMB advertisements to the correct demographic. These advertisements may appear on BRMB’s website or social media sites, or on third party sites. If you have chosen to receive email news or offers, BRMB may use your email address for targeted advertising.

ONLINE ORDER INFORMATION AND SECURITY
If you make an order online, we only require the information needed to complete your processing and billing. We also share our users’ personal information with outside shipping companies and credit card processing companies in order to bill and ship your order, but we limit this only to the information necessary for these purposes. We may also use this information to contact you regarding your order.
OUR SITE SECURITY
We use the necessary security safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access. Any personal information you provide to BRMB in connection with a product order is exchanged on a secure server. We use one of the most advanced security systems available, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, to encrypt, or encode, information you send to us with your order. The encryption process scrambles your information, such as your credit card number and billing and shipping address, before it is sent from your computer. We only decode this information once it is safely within our possession, and we make all the necessary efforts to ensure its security in our own systems.
E-mail is not a secure means to send personal information, as it is not encrypted. We strongly encourage you to use our secure ordering process when ordering online.
BRMB newsletters are sent only to users who choose to subscribe to this service. Our subscriber database is never sold, rented or loaned to any third parties. Subscribers wishing to update their contact information or unsubscribe from our newsletter can use their online accounts or click on “unsubscribe” in any email they have recieved from us. From time to time, BRMB may send you updates and notices related to products you have purchased.
We collect aggregate information regarding open rates, page views, and generated sales from our HTML email newsletters. Aggregate information does not include anything that would identify you personally.
In addition to the above purposes, BRMB collects individual’s personal information for the following reasons:
To provide retail services and process member purchases
