Disclosure of Information
Brown generally does not require collected information to obtain access to any area of the Site. However, if you decide to provide personal information to Brown, in no case will Brown sell, license or transmit that information to third parties, except as required or permitted by law, such as in the case that Brown sells its business such as through a stock or asset sale to a third party. In the course of our normal business activities, we may disclose collected information to both affiliates and non-affiliated entities, as we deem necessary. We will not disclose your information for any purposes other than those in conjunction with the business activities requested of us unless otherwise permitted or required by law.
Safeguarding of Information
Our employees are trained to understand the importance of confidentiality and are required to adhere to our privacy policies and procedures.

We employ numerous practices to protect against the disclosure of information for purposes unrelated to the performance of our business functions or to individuals other than those who must use it in the course of their work activities. These practices include the use of password protection of computer files, e-mail and voice-mail, video surveillance, and other physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards. Note, however, that no set of privacy and security safeguards is perfect and impenetrable. We recommend that you remain vigilant and take steps to protect your identity and personal information.
