Privacy & Security Policy

BRANT.one Privacy & Security Policy has been developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the highest-quality products and services with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our viewers, our media partners and our advertising customers hereunto referred to as “clients”.

The Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use, and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our products and services and receiving news and related content through our online properties. It reflects our commitment to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of the personal information entrusted to us by our clients. This Policy will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices, and client needs.

The Policy applies to all current and prospective clients of BRANT.one Communications and/or our subsidiaries and/or affiliates (collectively “BRANT.one”), as well as to users of our online properties.

WILL BRANT.ONE GO USE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION/DATA?

BRANT.ONE will never compromise or share personal information received from our clients. Any tracking for measurement purposes is done at an aggregate level and not at an individual one.

DO I NEED TO DISABLE MY ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE OR ANY FIREWALLS IN ORDER TO ACCESS BRANT.ONE.CA ON MY COMPUTER?

BRANT.ONE operates using commonly accessible web protocols (HTTP, HTTPS) on standard ports for which most firewalls will allow access. If you have custom security in place, it may affect the ability of BRANT.ONE to properly function. If you have installed a firewall at home, simply accept the request from your firewall asking if it’s okay to access BRANT.ONE. To make BRANT.ONE an exception to your computer’s firewall, go to your Internet service provider’s online Help section and follow the instructions. For firewalls at work, you will need to contact your company’s Information Technology department.

DO I NEED TO ADJUST ANY WEB BROWSER SECURITY SETTINGS ON MY COMPUTER TO WATCH BRANT.ONE?

No. Standard browser settings will work fine.

USE OF COOKIES

Similar to other commercial websites, our websites utilize a standard technology called “cookies” and web server logs to collect information about how our websites are used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our websites, and the websites visited just before and just after our websites. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual. If you choose to correspond with us via e-mail, we may retain the content of your e-mail messages together with your e-mail address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of non-electronic information, such as that received by mail and telephone.

Information obtained through our websites is used for internal review, to improve the content of our webpages, and to customize the content and/or layout of our pages for each individual visitor; it is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.

FORM SUBMISSION SECURITY (SSL/TLS)

When you submit a form or upload on this website such as an enquiry or a simple site search via our website, a secure server is used.

We use industry standard data encryption for transmission of any personal information including credit card details you provide online. Known as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) or TLS (Transport Layer Security)  protocol, you can check this is active by looking for the padlock symbol on many browsers. SSL allows a secure connection between your web browser and our web server, using a private (or secret) key to encrypt the information.
