Revised: April 15, 2017 (v.5)
A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT CHILDREN
BRIGGO is not designed or intended for use by children under 13. Children under 13 may not submit any Personally Identifiable Information (as defined below) to us, and if we discover that we have inadvertently gathered any such information from a child under 13, we will take appropriate steps to delete it.
In addition, persons under 18, should use BRIGGO only with involvement of a parent or guardian.
This does not mean that we can prevent spam from happening on the Internet. Unfortunately, spammers obtain email addresses in a number of devious ways, including when you respond and ask to be taken off a spam email list, and in some cases by just generating emails to millions of random email addresses in the hope of getting a few “live” ones. Please be assured that at BRIGGO we hate spam as much as you do, and we do our best to avoid contributing to it.
All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to ask that we discontinue such emails to you. (Even if you opt-out of our newsletter or other marketing communications, we may still send you certain transactional or administrative emails, such as email or text confirmations of product purchases, or emails regarding changes to your account.)
If you believe that you have gotten unsolicited email from us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate. Please be assured that we strive not to contact anyone for marketing purposes without permission, and if you prefer not to receive any further marketing communications from us, just tell us and we’ll try to make sure you never hear from us again.
WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION DOES BRIGGO COLLECT?
Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, credit/debit card number and expiration date (or other payment-method information), login ID, member name and password. When you sign up for or use the Site or other Service, BRIGGO collects some amount of Personally Identifiable Information from you. BRIGGO also collects Personally Identifiable Information that you may voluntarily provide when you use the Site or other Service, that you may disclose in a public area of the Site or other Service (such as a rating/review page, message board, chat room, social network), or that you may include if you communicate with BRIGGO. In addition, when you use certain features of the Site or other Service, BRIGGO may collect other Personally Identifiable Information of others that you may provide.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
BRIGGO collects information from you automatically when you use the Site or other Service. The information that BRIGGO collects automatically does not contain Personally Identifiable Information, but we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect from you or in other ways or receive from third parties. The automatically collected information may include information about your device, browsing actions and patterns, including (i) details of your interactions with the Site or other Service (such as pages, content or resources that you access, product preferences (e.g., the drink formulations selected) and locations where you picked up your drinks), (ii) traffic data, location data, logs and other communication data, and (iii) your browser type, IP address, and operating system. BRIGGO also collects information that does not include Personally Identifiable Information when you voluntarily provide it (such as in response to a questionnaire or survey) or post it to a public area of the Site or other Service (such as a rating/review page, message board, chat room or social network). Information we collect automatically helps us to provide and improve the Service and to deliver a better and more personalized Service, including by enabling us to (a) estimate our audience size and usage patterns, (b) analyze and monitor the use, relevancy and functionality of our Service, (c) store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Service according to your individual interests, and (d) recognize you when you return to our Service.
HOW DOES BRIGGO AUTOMATICALLY COLLECT INFORMATION?
Pages of websites included in our Service and/or our e-mails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs. pixel tags and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an e-mail and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
Payment Card Readers and User Interface.
When you create an account at BRIGGO or use a payment card to purchase a BRIGGO product, Personally Identifiable Information is collected at the point of entry on our secure Site or from the magnetic stripe on your card. That information is immediately encrypted and transmitted to the BRIGGO datacenter where the already encrypted information is sent through a one-way cipher (it does not allow BRIGGO to reverse the process and read your Personally Identifiable Information). That ciphered information is then sent to BRIGGO’s third party payment processor where the charges for your product are cleared through Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club and other credit and debit providers for deposit in BRIGGO’s bank account. The third party payment provider stores the cipher which is used by BRIGGO to recall your “favorited” products and preferences to provide you with a more personalized experience and system ease of use. BRIGGO offers a loyalty drink program in which returning users receive free products after meeting certain thresholds. Account holders can also create a “pickup” name which allows convenient identification when mobile users visit a product pickup point to retrieve their purchase. The cipher does not allow BRIGGO to use or read any Personally Identifiable Information until you return to one of the BRIGGO Sites or use the Service and use the same payment card used during a prior visit.
HTML5 Local Storage.
HTML5 Local Storage is a feature of the thin client markup language used by BRIGGO to create all user interfaces. Local Storage allows the client software to retain information about browsing history on the BRIGGO site. This information is used to enhance the local client experience and is not shared or stored centrally on BRIGGO computer systems.
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer automatically when you use the Internet. BRIGGO does not currently log your IP address. In the future, BRIGGO may log your IP address when you use the Site or other Service. This information will not be stored with any Personally Identifiable Information on BRIGGO computer systems or networks. This information would be used for statistical purposes only.
Pixels, also called clear GIFs, are invisible files on Web pages that you visit. When you visit a page on a website that contains a pixel, the pixel communicates with your computer to determine, among other things, whether you have been to that page before or viewed a particular advertisement. BRIGGO does not currently use pixels. In the future, BRIGGO may use pixels to serve advertising, enhance email advertising, and track usage of the Site or other Service.
HOW DOES BRIGGO USE THE INFORMATION?
Personally Identifiable Information.
BRIGGO uses your Personally Identifiable Information to notify you of changes to the Site or other Service, to respond to your customer service inquiries, communicate with you about your purchases, and to allow you access to your “favorited” products, your product history, and your loyalty card information. BRIGGO uses this information to request your participation in surveys or other promotions. You can choose not to receive certain communications from BRIGGO as described in the section below entitled “Receiving Communications and Opting Out.” BRIGGO also uses your Personally Identifiable Information to process and fulfill your purchases, provide you with information that you request, and deliver content to you that is relevant to your interests.
BRIGGO combines your usage information for the Site or other Service with that of other users to determine which features and areas of the Site or other Service are most popular. By collecting and analyzing this data, BRIGGO can improve the Site or other Service. This “Aggregate Information” does not contain any of your Personally Identifiable Information.
WHO DOES BRIGGO SHARE INFORMATION WITH?
Personally Identifiable Information.
BRIGGO may disclose Aggregate Information and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction. Without limiting the foregoing, we may disclose Aggregate Information with potential partners, advertisers, investors and other interested third parties in connection with the marketing of BRIGGO’s products and services without restriction, as long as such information does not include any of your Personally Identifiable Information.
Selling and Renting Information.
BRIGGO does not sell or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties. However, in the event that you expressly opt-in via the Site or other Service to receive particular products or services, or information about products or services, that are offered by third parties, or otherwise authorize us to do so, we will share your Personally Identifiable Information with those third parties as appropriate for those limited purposes. BRIGGO may also share with those same third parties certain limited personal information that, without other information, does not specifically identify you.
Sharing with Social Networks or Other Sites You May Authorize.
If you are a member of a social network service (such as Facebook, Instagram, etc.) or you use other Internet sites where you have authorized them to gather information about your online behavior on BRIGGO (for instance, to notify your friends that you enjoyed one of our products or the experience, including participation in any behavioral reporting program that they may operate on or off of their own site (i.e., Facebook Beacon, etc.)), BRIGGO allows you to set up an account through credentials you store in your social network accounts (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, etc.). BRIGGO may share with third party social networks Personally Identifiable Information, and other information regarding your activities on our Site or other Service that may be associated with Personally Identifiable Information third party social networks already have about you (such as your Facebook Profile), and such third party social networks may use such information to improve their site or services, to provide us with data to improve our understanding of our customer base, or for other purposes. BRIGGO does not control the privacy policies of such third parties, and their privacy policies will govern their use of your information once it has been transmitted by BRIGGO. BRIGGO assumes no responsibility or liability for the actions of such third parties with respect to their use of your information or otherwise. Accordingly, make sure you are aware of and comfortable with the privacy policies of any third parties that you authorize to gather information from BRIGGO or information they provide to BRIGGO with your permission.

WHAT OPTIONS DO I HAVE TO CONTROL THE USE OF MY INFORMATION?
Receiving Communications and Opting Out.
During registration and certain purchases, you can “opt out” of receiving certain communications from BRIGGO and our partners. Also, you can later “opt out” by sending a message to email@example.com requesting that your account be closed and all Personally Identifiable Information be deleted except for transaction history needed for statutory reasons. If you find that any information regarding your account is missing or incorrect, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on how to correct errors or omissions. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or cause the information to be incorrect. We will respond to your request within 30 days from the date you contact us.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT PRIVACY?
We maintain security measures in place in order to attempt to protect against the accidental loss, and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure of the Personally Identifiable Information. We will comply with our obligations (including any disclosure and notice obligations) under applicable U.S. law relating any breach of the security, confidentiality or integrity of your personal information. Please be advised, however, that the Internet and other various networking communication media are not entirely secure, and your information may therefore be subject to interception or loss which is beyond our control. Accordingly, BRIGGO assumes no responsibility or liability for disclosure of your information (personally identifiable or otherwise) due circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures with respect to our Service or systems.
Disclosure of Information in Public Areas.
If you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information in a public area of the Site or other Service, such as a rating/review page, chat room, message board or social network, that information may be collected and used by a third party to send you unsolicited messages, advertisements or for other purposes. BRIGGO does not control the actions of users in public areas of the Site or other Service. If you disclose Personally Identifiable Information in a public area, you do so at your own risk.
