Blytheco General Privacy Policy

Last Updated June 11, 2018

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices. Please read this privacy statement closely. You accept the terms of this privacy statement by continuing to use Blytheco’s products and services.

Policy

Blytheco will never sell, rent, barter, trade, distribute or lease personal information to outside parties unless Blytheco obtains customer permission or disclosure as required by law.

Purpose

Blytheco uses the information customers provide only to the extent necessary to offer our services to our customers. Blytheco believes in both minimizing the data that is collected and limiting its use and purpose to only that: 1) for which we have been given permission by customers, 2) as necessary to deliver our services, and 3) as we might be required or permitted for legal, compliance or other lawful purposes.

The only individually identifiable information that Blytheco collects about you is that which you choose to share with us in registration, such as your name, billing address, email address, phone, usernames and passwords. This information will be closely protected and used for internal purposes only. Blytheco uses return email addresses to answer the email Blytheco receives. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Blytheco will never willfully release your personal information to any third party unless you direct us to do so or disclosure is required by law. Blytheco also may collect personal information when you request assistance from our customer support team (e.g., phone number, email address) and may collect additional information that you choose to share with our customer support team.

Blytheco also collects information to evaluate aggregate site usage. Blytheco may automatically collect certain usage information from customers, such as Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, log files, unique device identifiers, pages viewed, browser type, any links you click on to leave or interact with our services and other usage information collected from cookies and other tracking technologies as noted below. For example, we collect IP addresses to track and aggregate non-personal information, such as using IP addresses to monitor the regions from which users navigate to our services. We also collect IP addresses from users when they log into their Blytheco databases as part of our log-in process and for enhanced identity authentication and authorization security.

Blytheco’s services may change over time and we may introduce new features that may collect new or different types of information.

Cookies

There is a technology called “cookies” which can be used to provide tailored information from a website. A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. A “cookie” marks and identifies visitors on an internet site to allow customers to enter customized information and have it available on subsequent visits. Blytheco pages may use cookies so that Blytheco can provide a customer with access to information when a customer returns to Blytheco’s website.

Although there has been debate over the privacy implications of cookies, it is important for Blytheco customers to know that cookies do not read your hard drive, nor can cookies be used to reveal new information about you that you have not elected to reveal. Blytheco may use cookies to log your activity on the site. Everything Blytheco learns from these logs will be used to enrich our users’ experiences on our site. It will help Blytheco understand what you like and don’t like, so Blytheco can focus its energies more effectively and provide you with better service. Please note that your web browser settings may be adjusted to limit or prohibit this and other websites from placing cookies.

Security

We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are in controlled facilities.

If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.

Connecting or Linking with Third Party services

We work with other companies or developers who provide products and services that you may choose to sync, link, or otherwise connect with your database. If you choose to make use of such related products or services, we may exchange that information, including your personal information, information from your database, and information about how you interact with each company’s service or product with one or more third parties. This routine exchange of information is necessary to maintain business operations and to provide the requested services.

Data Retention

In accordance with and as permitted by applicable law and regulations, we may retain your information as long as necessary to serve you, to maintain your account for as long as your account is active, or as otherwise needed to operate our business.

When your account expires or becomes disabled, Blytheco may retain information about our customers as required by applicable regulations and to comply with our legal and reporting obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, complete any outstanding transactions and for the detection and prevention of fraud.

Your Access Rights

Applicable law may give users certain rights to access personal information about them, and to limit use and disclosure of their personal information. Blytheco is committed to respecting those rights. If you wish to request access, to limit use, or to limit disclosure, please contact us at privacy@blytheco.com and please provide the name of the Blytheco customer who submitted your personal information to our services. We will refer your requests to that customer and will support them as needed in responding to your request.
