Brxstr is sensitive to the privacy of members, and will NEVER distribute or share personal information of any registrant with any companies or non-Brxstr administrators.
We only collect and keep the minimum amount of information necessary to perform the functions of an internet-based news and advertising site. For example, if a user forgets their password they can request a reminder to be sent to the email address that they registered with. No information collected by Brxstr, passively or actively, will be distributed to third parties.
Parents of a child who has registered an account with Brxstr can ask us for access to, or to remove, the information pertaining to the child upon reasonable proof that the requestor is in fact the parent or guardian of that user.

Brxstr Cookies and 3rd Party Cookies
When you browse Brxstr, you may receive Brxstr cookies from Brxstr.com and from 3rd party sites, such as Amazon or eBay.
Brxstr does not carry advertising from advertising networks so you will not receive any ‘behavioural retargeting’ cookies that can have a nasty habit of tracking you as you surf the web and show you ads related to sites you’ve just visited. It is this kind of annoying behaviour that most advertising/tracking regulations are seeking to control.
Types of Cookies in Use
When cookies are created they are given a lifespan. They either live for the length of your browser session, or for longer:
- Session cookies are created when you start a browser session at Brxstr, and deleted when you end it.
- Persistent cookies are created for analytical purposes, or in response to actions or choices you take at Brxstr and are saved so that, for example, your preferences are set the next time you visit the site.
The cookies created by Brxstr fall into four categories:
- Essential, or ‘strictly necessary’ cookies are needed for the site to function.
- Functional cookies are used to support site features, such as your viewing preferences. They tend to be persistent so that, for your convenience, your choices are remembered next time you visit the site.
- Analytical cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use the site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.
- 3rd party cookies are created by sites other than Brxstr and are used to support features such as affiliate marketing and social bookmarking.
