We do not require special categories of personal information under the definitions in the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) enacted by the European Union (“EU”)
THE VALUE OF INFORMATION
– How we use your personal data
Brewer Science do not sell, distribute, or use the information we gather for any purpose other than it was collected for without first getting your express permission to do so or unless we reasonably use it for another reason that is compatible with the original purpose. We also do not use your information for activities for the benefit of Brewer Science without appropriate consideration for its impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
We will use your personal data:
- When you have consented, such as by “opting in”, signing up for a newsletter, or requesting to receive information and updates from Brewer Science.
- Where we need to perform a contract we have entered into with you or the entity with whom you are employed or associated or potentially could enter into in the future. Providing your personal details via our website can be the first step in establishing a contractual business relationship between you or your company or other entity and Brewer Science.
- Where is it necessary for our legitimate interests and your interests and fundamental rights do not override these interests. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you or your company or other entity (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your information for our legitimate interests.
- Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation in response to lawful requests by public authorities, and to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
If you have consented to the use of your information, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time by contacting us or updating your contact preferences. If you withdraw your consent or update your contact preferences, Brewer Science may not be able to provide you with information regarding our certain products and services.

– Sharing information with Third Parties
When providing your personal data to Brewer Science via our website, we utilize a third-party management system that allows us to collect, analyze and organize the data provided.
We will provide an individual opt-out or opt-in choice before we share your data with a third party or agents, or before we use it for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized.
Brewer Science’s accountability for personal data that it receives under the EU Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the EU Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, Brewer Science remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process the personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Brewer Science is able to demonstrate that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
PRIVACY SHIELD COMPLIANCE – Protecting your personal information when transferring it outside of the European Economic Area (EEA)
Brewer Science uses reasonable and appropriate measures to protect personal data from loss or misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. In addition, Brewer Science limits access to your information to its employees and third parties that have a business reason to view this information.

Brewer Science has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Privacy Shield Principles to BBB EU PRIVACY SHIELD, a non-profit alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States and operated by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers/ for more information and to file a complaint.
Please note that if your complaint is not resolved through these channels, under limited circumstances, a binding arbitration option may be available before a Privacy Shield Panel.
Brewer Science is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
RETENTION OF DATA
– How long do we hold your data?
Unless Brewer Science has received a request for data to be deleted or an individual has proactively unsubscribed from our marketing activities, we will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which we collect it, including for the purpose of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.
KEEPING DATA SECURE
– What do we do in the unlikely event of a security breach?
In the unlikely event of a security breach or an unauthorized intrusion into material that can be used to identify you as an individual and is likely to result in a risk to your rights and freedoms, we will notify you as soon as possible and report the action we take in response. We may also notify the applicable supervisory authorities.
