BROTHER'S Sdn. Bhd. (BROTHER’S) has created this privacy statement to demonstrate its firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website, brothers.com.my.
This policy covers how BROTHER’S treats personal information that BROTHER’S collects and receives. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available without your consent.
This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that BROTHER’S does not own or control or to people that BROTHER’S does not employ or manage.
The information collected is meant to identify the broad demographic profile of our users. This information does not contain anything that can identify users individually. We may combine demographic information supplied by a subscriber at registration with site usage data to provide profiles, in aggregate form, about our users and their preferences in the content of the site and advertising. You may receive periodic mailings from us with information on new products or services in our newspaper or on our site.
The user-supplied information collected through the registration process, surveys, contest entry forms, polls or other similar vehicles is used to improve the content of our site, or used for BROTHER’S marketing purposes. It is not shared with other organisations for commercial purposes unless specifically stated. We may use such information for targeting appropriate editorial or advertising content to users but users will always be able to opt out of such mailings.
When you register we ask for information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, post code, occupation, industry, and personal interests. For some products and services we may also ask for your address and contact number. Once you register with BROTHER’S and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us.
BROTHER’S collects information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners, including information about your use of products and services that we offer.
BROTHER’S may use the information for the following general purposes: to customise the advertising and content you see, fulfil your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
This site makes information sharing, feedback, forums, and/or message boards available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. We request that users treat each other with courtesy and mutual respect.
This site contains links to other sites. BROTHER’S Online is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites. BROTHER’S Online has also established relationships with partners but such relationships are generally technical in nature, or content collaborations. If any partner has access to any information entered by users in our database, this fact shall be disclosed to the user upon initiating the registration process. Users who feel they do not wish their information to be shared by anyone other than BROTHER’S Online may then opt out of completing the registration.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. When a user is asked to provide his/her credit card information, we provide a secure environment through our partners' systems (using industry standard SSL or SET protocols) for this purpose.
