Our data will be:
- Accurate and kept up-to-date
- Collected fairly and for lawful purposes only
- Processed by BrainStore within its legal and moral boundaries

Our data will not be:
- Communicated informally
- Distributed to any party other than the ones agreed upon by the data’s owner (exempting legitimate requests from law enforcement authorities)
In addition to ways of handling the data, BrainStore has direct obligations toward people to whom the data belongs.
