Information about our Organization
Because we gather certain types of information about the visitors to our website, you should fully understand our policy surrounding the gathering and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
Information We Collect
In general, you can visit the Brook Web Sites without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address, (where possible) from which people visit us, but not the e-mail address, and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
There are times (for example, when you request a furniture rental quote, etc.) at which we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, rental address, billing address, telephone number, email address, cell phone and fax number. We also maintain a record of your online product requests. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to rent products, or access certain services, offers and content on our web site.
We also collect non-identifiable information through the Brook Web Sites, including your time of visit to the web site, as well as certain preferences you have expressed regarding our products.
Use of Your Information
We use the personally identifiable information you provide for internal purposes, such as confirming your rental request, analyzing trends and statistics, informing you of our new products, services and offers, and providing you with information from and about Brook. From time to time we might establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy policies are consistent with ours. These are known as our marketing partners, advertisers or other third parties for research purposes. In such cases we might share and cross-reference information, including personally identifiable information about you that will enable such persons or entities to contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest to you. You may choose not to have your information shared with these third-parties by opting-out. If you choose to opt out, Brook will not disclose your personal information to third-parties for marketing purposes. You will also not receive direct mail, telephone or e-mail solicitations for products or services from Brook or third-parties based upon information you provide to Brook if you opt out.
To opt out, please contact Brook according to the following information and indicate that you would like to opt out of Brook sharing your information with a third party and that you do not want to receive solicitations from Brook. Please contact us at:
