Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site.
1. How We Collect Your Information
The first thing to remember about privacy is that there is only so much information that any website can collect without you answering specific questions. For example, in order to post any content or comments on the Brontë Bride Blog, you must first sign up with a profile. During the registration process you are required to provide certain personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address.
2. User Content
Any content (comments and reviews) you post on the Brontë Bride website is public. By submitting any comments and reviews, this information may be collected and used by others. User Content may be also used by Brontë Bride as described in our Terms of Service. We are not responsible for any personally identifiable information that you choose to include in such User Content. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your User Content.
3. Use of your Personal Information
Like most websites, Brontë Bride uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a tiny data file which resides on your computer and allows Brontë Bride to recognize you as a user when you return to the Brontë Bride website from the same computer and browser. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Brontë Bride website or services you visit.
5. Third Party Advertisers
Advertisements, promotions and offers from third-party advertisers may be provided to you while you are visiting the Brontë Bride website. We may also use third-party widgets (i.e. Facebook plug-ins). These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous. Brontë Bride does not have access to or control of the cookies or action tags that may be placed by the third-party.

7. Data Security
Brontë Bride follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and data backups where appropriate. We also protect the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
8. Legal Disclaimer
Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
