Buddhist Recovery Network - Privacy Policy    (Version 1.0 Dated April 27th, 2008)    

The Buddhist Recovery Network (BRN) is committed to preserving your privacy and safeguarding your personal information. The organisation works in the area of recovery from addictive behaviors, and so our sensitivity to the need for privacy and anonymity is acute. We must go beyond complying with current commercial practice, and adopt a leadership position of the utmost integrity. To this end, the organisation has adopted the following Privacy Policy.

This policy applies to the operation of our website as well as organisational practices and processes relating to our use of Membership and user information.

We do not capture personally identifiable information (such as your email address) when you access and browse our website. We use IP addresses to obtain general, aggregated information on website use. This enables us to assess the effectiveness of our online services. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We only collect personal information when it is voluntarily provided.

All personal information voluntarily provided to the BRN is kept strictly confidential. Only when the member or user has provided consent will information be disclosed (eg the names of Advisory Council members listed on our website).

When our website asks users to enter sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, this takes place on a secure server and is protected by encryption software. Financial information is used for a single transaction only and is not retained by the BRN.

The BRN does not provide any information to third parties, even aggregated information with personally identifiable information removed. The BRN does not share information with other Nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organizations for the purpose of mailouts. If a service or event is deemed by the BRN Membership Manager to be of interest to members, it will be included in a BRN communication.

This privacy policy applies to the BRN organisation and its website. We cannot provide the same assurances for sites on our links page, and encourage you to understand the privacy policy of the sites you visit.
