FertileBrains Disclaimer and Privacy Policy

FertileBrains is committed to respecting your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. Please read below details regarding our policies:

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, FertileBrains collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. FertileBrains’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how FertileBrains’ visitors use its website. From time to time, FertileBrains may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

FertileBrains also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on fertilebrains.com. FertileBrains only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to FertileBrains’ websites choose to interact with FertileBrains in ways that require FertileBrains to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that gathered are dependent on the nature of the interaction. In every case, FertileBrains collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with FertileBrains. FertileBrains does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using FertileBrains’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. FertileBrains will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, FertileBrains discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when FertileBrains believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FertileBrains, third parties or the public at large.
