Thank you for visiting BrainyQuote.com, a site designed to inform,
inspire, educate and entertain users all around the globe. This Privacy
Policy is written to better explain how we collect and use your
information, and to cover our caboose in case you plan to sue us
because you don't like how we use information, or you're a person who
you must agree to it to the same extent as our Terms of Service in
order to use our services, including submitting quotes to our website.
2. Personal Information We Collect
Good news! You don't have to give us any personal information when you
use our website. You may, however, tell us your name and your life
story (it's not that we're not interested, and we can't stop you), but
please do not share your personal details when you submit a quote to us
for consideration. We will not disclose any information that you
provide to us except in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy
3. Non-Personal Information We Collect
We may collect information about you that is not personal information.
When you access our website and/or submit a quote, we may collect such
things as your IP address, browser, operating system, referring URL,
and other general information about our visitors. This information, on
its own, cannot usually be used to identify you.
4. Use of Information
We may use your information for a wide variety of purposes, including
printing physical paper copies of it and turning it into an origami hat
(kidding again). Specifically, though, we may let your non-personal
information be shared with:
- Our host, whose server logs collect the non-personal
information described above.
our websites. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads
to our users based on their visit to our sites and other sites on the
Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting

visiting the RadiumOne Preference Manager.

use of the Quantcast cookie by visiting the Quantcast Preference Manager.
- comScore, Inc. (weird capitalization intentional - but that's
how they spell it), which also identifies anonymous user interests on
our websites via its Scorecard Research program. You may opt out of
this cookie by visiting the Scorecard Research Preference
interests (starting to notice a pattern here?) on our website. You
Cookies aren't just delicious; they also apparently have something to
cookies to track ads and to share information with third parties as
described above. Because of this, you should enable your cookies when
you use our website. If you're new to the Internet, please don't try
dunking your mouse in milk and eating it; this is the Number One
Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole
world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and
then lay down on our blankets for a nap.
6. Third Party Websites
We may link to third party websites from our own website. We have no
control over, and are not responsible for, these third party websites
or their use of your personal information. We recommend that, if you
have a ridiculous amount of free time (and nothing better to do), you
review their privacy policies and other agreements governing your use
of their website. Once you do, you should report back to us in a
detailed and meticulously proofread memorandum explaining all of these
websites, so we may immediately put it to use under that corner of the
table that is lower than the rest.
7. Third Party Access to Your Information
We protect your information from being accessed by third parties using
our state of the art laser defense system. Well, not really... we just
adequate measures to protect your information. We may employ outside
maintenance personnel or use a third party to host our material.
Because of this, it is necessary that you permit us to give access to
your information to third parties to the same extent that you authorize
us to do so. For greater certainty, every authorization which you grant
may hire, contract, or hire as an intern for the purpose of operating,
maintaining, repairing, or otherwise improving or preserving our
website or its underlying files or systems. You agree not to hold us
liable for the actions of any of these third parties, even if we would
normally be held vicariously liable for their actions, and that you
must take legal action against them directly should they commit any
tort or other actionable wrong against you.
8. Law Enforcement
We may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in
good faith, in bad faith, or in so-so faith, that it is desirable to do
so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other
legal matter. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your
privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file
a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it
ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either. Chances are that if
the police are looking into your activities on a quote website, you've
really got issues, and we're probably going to hand over your
information and tell your family and friends.
The act of policing is, in order to punish less often, to
punish more severely.
9. Security of Information
We may, but are not obligated to, secure our website with packs of
hungry bunnies; we hope they don't eat your information. However, we
make no representations as to the security or privacy of your
information. It is in our interest to keep our website secure, but we
recommend that you use anti-virus software, firewalls, and other
precautions to protect yourself from security threats. (Be the third
pig, not one of the first two.)
10. California Online Privacy Protection Act
We allow California users to use our website, and we fully comply with
California's privacy laws. If you have any questions about your rights
version will be posted on our website in place of the old version. We
took effect to help you determine whether there have been any changes
since you last used our website. Like our Terms of Service, you must
visit this page each time you come to our website, and read and agree
to it if the date it was last modified is more recent than the last
matters regarding your privacy, can be sent or directed to
