Personally identifiable information may include, without limitation, (i) contact data (such as a User's name, mailing and e-mail addresses) and (ii) demographic data (such as a User's zip code, age and income). If you communicate with BRES by e-mail or otherwise, post messages to any forums or otherwise complete online forms or surveys, any information provided in such communication may be collected by BRES. BRES may also collect information about how Users use the Web Site, for example, by tracking the number of unique views received by the pages of the Web Site, or the domains from which Users originate. BRES may use "cookies" or "web beacons" to track how Users use the Web Site. A cookie is a piece of software that a Web server can store on the Users' PC and use to identify the User should they visit the Web Site again. While not all of the information that BRES collects from Users is personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that Users provide BRES through the Web Site or otherwise.

Disclosure of Information

BRES may disclose information collected from Users to trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners who will use the information for the purposes outlined above. BRES may also disclose aggregate, anonymous data based on information collected from Users to investors and potential partners. Finally, BRES may transfer information collected from Users in connection with a sale of its business.

Security of Information

However, BRES cannot guarantee that the information submitted to, maintained on, or transmitted from its systems will be completely secure.
