Protecting your privacy is important to us. This privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) covers our collection, use and disclosure of information we collect through our website www.brierley.com. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information.

This privacy policy applies to our corporate website, www.brierley.com, owned and operated by Brierley (the “Site”), regardless of how you access such Site (e.g., through mobile devices). Brierley also adheres to the Privacy Policy of our Clients when collecting, storing, and transmitting data on their behalf for the purposes of loyalty and CRM services.

How We Collect Information

We collect information directly from you, including any information you send to us, and automatically through your use of our Site (see “Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies” below).

The Information We Collect

Brierley collects the following personal information from you: (i) your name; (ii) your email address; (iii) your mailing address; (iv) your phone number; (v) company information; and (vi) any other information you send directly to us, including through our Site. Personal information is information that identifies you as an individual. We do not consider information that has been anonymized or aggregated to be personal information because it can no longer be used to identify a specific person.

As you navigate through this Site, we will automatically collect anonymous information about you and your activities during your visit. This information includes navigational data and web server logs, and may include (but is not limited to) information such as your IP address, the version of both your browser and operating system, and the URL of the website you just came from (“Usage Data”).

How We Use the Information We Collect

We use the information we collect to respond to your requests for information and send you commercial communications (if you so choose). To the extent that you provide information in connection with an inquiry to join the Brierley team, we may use such information for our recruiting purposes.

Sharing

We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.

We may also disclose your personal information to protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or to any other third party with your prior consent to do so. If Brierley is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.

Legal Bases for Use of Your Information; Your Additional Rights

To use the information that we collect about you, we rely on the following legal bases for processing:

With respect to personal information that you provide to us via this Site, we rely on the affirmative consent that you provided at the time that you provided us that information. By indicating your consent in connection with providing that information, you consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

With respect to Usage Data, we rely on the legitimate interests bases. Our interest is in ensuring that our Site provides relevant, useful content and performs in a way that makes it easy for you to use. Your interests are protected in this case due to the anonymous nature of the Usage Data, and the fact that we use this data only for this limited purpose.

Under certain circumstances, you have specific, additional rights with respect to personal information that you have provided to us:

  1. to access personal information held about you,
  2. to have your personal information corrected,
  3. to have your personal information erased (i) where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it; (ii) where you have exercised your right to object to processing and there is no compelling legitimate grounds to for us to process your personal information which override your interests (see below); (iii) where we may have processed your personal information unlawfully; (iv) or where we are required to erase your personal information to comply with local law. (We may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.)
  4. to restrict the processing of your personal information (i) if you want us to establish the accuracy of your personal information; (ii) where our use of your personal information is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (iii) where you need us to hold your personal information even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (iv) where you have objected to our use of your personal information but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it,
  5. to object to processing of your personal information (i) where we are relying on a legitimate interest basis (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts your interests (though we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your interests); or (ii) where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes,
  6. to receive personal information about you that was automatically collected with your consent or used to perform a contract with you and transfer it to another data controller (in which case we will provide your personal information in a structured, commonly-used, machine-readable format), and
  7. to lodge a complaint with the relevant data protection authority.

As explained above, your consent to processing of your personal information may sometimes form the legal basis for our processing of your personal information. Where this is the case, you can withdraw your consent at any time (without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before your withdrawal of consent).

Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. To exercise any of these rights, contact us at https://app.onetrust.com/app/#/webform/1c22609a-1047-4cb1-8c80-ccc5d20aa45c. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
