We do not request sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers, unless they are signing up for and paying for our services. We never sell, share or trade any of our customer information with other companies.

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address.

The Brief stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one time email and tracking the success of referrals made through this programme.
