Who we are
Hi, we’re Brindle and we make the best WordPress plugins for small business. Our website address is: https://mybrindle.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We do not store any payment information here at Brindle. However, payment info can be stored for later use (if you choose) and that info will be stored via PayPal or Stripe, depending on your payment choice. These 3rd party services retain their own sophisticated payment security procedures, though remain unrelated to this site. We in no way store, nor have access to, your payment info.
Google Calendar (Brindle Booking)
Brindle Booking’s integration of the Google Calendar API requires the collection of certain information in order for users to add appointments to their calendars. Data collected includes the time and date of the appointment being booked, name, email, of each user adding the appointment to their respective Google Calendars, and potentially the address where the appointment is being held. This includes the ability to see, edit, share and permanently delete Google Calendar entries in order for Brindle Booking to work as expected. Infomration is shared between users booking the appointment in addition to the site’s admin or staff member’s in order to sync calendar’s for those who are involved in an appointment, and any of this information needed to book the appointment will be stored on the calendar’s of each party involved in shared bookings. We at Brindle Booking will never store or share your information, and hold no responsibility with what information is shared by individuals involved in the bookings. By agreeing to the use of the Google Calendar functionality, you agree to these terms. For more information, please review the oAuth consent screen here:
Zoom Meeting Data (Brindle Booking)
Brindle Booking includes a feature to automatically generate a Zoom meeting link for all parties involved in an appointment booking. This portion of the plugin uses a custom “Zoom App” which temporarily stores basic data about each Zoom meetings that are created in order to generate the link. All Zoom data is protected on our secure server via transport layer security (TLS) 1.3. No personal data is ever collected by Zoom, or Brindle LLC., and the data stored is simply time-stamp based info on the meeting. Likewise, the application itself has no access to this storage, nor the basic data that is stored.
