  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Brandman GCV collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Brandman GCV’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Brandman GCV’s visitors use its website.

Brandman GCV does not collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses when tracking a user ID. Instead, Brandman GCV ensured that this data is being made anonymous by IP anonymisation.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Brandman GCV’s websites choose to interact with Brandman GCV in ways that require Brandman GCV to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Brandman GCV gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive newsletter updates via email (Brandnews), we ask for their emails. In each case, Brandman GCV collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Brandman GCV. Brandman GCV does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Brandman GCV may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Brandman GCV may monitor the most popular pages or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Brandman GCV may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Brandman GCV does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Brandman GCV uses cookies to help Brandman GCV identify and track visitors, their usage of Brandman GCV website, and their website access preferences. Brandman GCV visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Brandman GCV’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Brandman GCV’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies. For Google Chrome users, an add-on is provided to block these cookies. At first visit, the user will be asked to allow cookies. As long as this consent is not given, cookies will automatically be blocked.


Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Brandman GCV and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.


Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Brandman GCV may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Brandman GCV’s sole discretion. Brandman GCV encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
