First, like most regular business sites on the Internet, we collect traffic data. Each time a visitor comes to our web site our servers collect basic technical information including visitor's domain name, referral data, and browser and platform type. This information is analyzed in aggregate, and we never track specific sessions and paths people take on the web site. Traffic information is only given out on a need to know basis and is at times shared with advertisers.
Second, unlike most regular business sites on the internet, during the process of buying home brewing supplies off of our site, HomeBrewing.com does not collect or store any personal data, such as a visitor's name, address, date of birth, phone number, e-mail address, social security number, because it contains direct links to on-line providers for all featured home brewing supplies.
All home brewing supplies purchases with personal data are directly taken and stored on the providers' web servers.
With respect to security: Our partners always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data.
