INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND RECEIVE FROM THIRD PARTIES

Information We Collect and Receive from Our Resellers and Webhosts

  • Briskinfosec has hundreds of resellers and webhosts that offer you our products and services for purchase directly from them. Briskinfosec enters into agreements with its resellers and webhosts containing adequate privacy safeguards and protections. When you provide information directly to these resellers or webhosts, you are providing your information subject to the privacy policies and practices of those resellers. You should make sure to review and understand those policies and practices prior to sharing your information.
  • For Briskinfosec to provide you with products and services through a reseller or webhost, that specific reseller or webhost must share your information with us. When that information is shared with us, it will be collected and used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
  • For more information on Briskinfosec’s resellers and webhosts, please contact [email protected] .

Information We Collect and Receive from Third-Party Sources

  • For Briskinfosec to properly validate some types of certificates (such as EV Certificates) in accordance with industry standards, it is necessary for Briskinfosec to supplement information that Briskinfosec receives from you or a reseller with information that it gathers from third-party sources.
  • As such, Briskinfosec may verify the information you provide us with information from independent third-party sources. The types of certificates, allowable third-party sources, and other relevant information are detailed with specificity in the CPS, the Baseline Requirements, the EV Guidelines, and the EV Code-Signing Guidelines. Information collected from these third-party sources will be used by Briskinfosec to validate the ordered Certificate. This is an integral aspect of the services provided by Briskinfosec and is required of Briskinfosec to validate a certificate.
  • Briskinfosec does not have any control over these third-party sources, but once Briskinfosec collects supplemental information from these sources, Briskinfosec will protect it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
  • Briskinfosec also collects and receives certificate information from publicly available certificate transparency (CT) logs. Generally, certificates and CT logs do not contain personal information. CT logs were created in the public’s interest to support public oversight and scrutiny of the SSL certificate system. The purpose of the CT log is to provide an open auditing and monitoring system to protect users and to prevent mistaken or malicious issuance of certificates.

Cookie Policy:

WHAT ARE COOKIES

  • Cookies are small files, containing numbers and letters that are stored on your devices by websites that you visit. Cookies allow websites to recognize you and make your next visit easier and more useful. Used alone, cookies do not personally identify you, but recognize your web browser.
  • There are different types and uses of cookies. Some cookies are strictly necessary for the website to function, while others may be used for performance, functionality, and advertising purposes. Most websites you visit use cookies to improve your user experience by allowing the website to remember you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). Such cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first-party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third-party cookies’).
  • In most instances, however, cookies are used to provide you with a smooth and functional experience. You can always disable the use of cookies by configuring your browser’s privacy settings (refer to your browser’s settings to learn more about cookie controls). Please note that if you choose to disable the use of cookies entirely, many websites, including the Briskinfosec website, will not function properly. For example, if a website does not use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site. This means that even after you “log in,” if you navigate to another page, the website will not recognize you and it will not be able to keep you logged in.

HOW WE USE COOKIES

  • When you use and access the Briskinfosec websites, we may place a number of cookie files on your web browser. We use cookies on our website to improve your website experiences, assist in your navigation and ability to provide feedback, to analyze trends relating to your use of our products and services, to remember your preferences or settings, to assist with our promotional and marketing efforts and to provide content from third parties.

Without these cookies we would not be able to identify you when you are logged into our websites, or to otherwise process your online transactions and requests.

Analytical or Performance Cookies

  • These cookies allow us and our third-party service providers to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us improve how our website works by, for example, ensuring that users can easily find what they need on our website. These cookies generate aggregate statistics that are not associated with an individualized profile. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our website, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
  • Briskinfosec's websites use Google Analytics, which is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics place a third-party cookie on user’s web browsers that is then used to compile reports of visitor traffic and internet usage.

Advertising, Tracking or Targeting Cookies

Remember, using your browser settings to block all cookies, including strictly necessary ones, may interfere with proper website operation.
