If these offers, promotions or services do not interest you, then you have the ability to opt out of receiving them.

Does Bluesmart share personal information with third parties?

In some cases, you may direct us to share your personal information with other parties. For example, you might authorize us to link your Bluesmart account or Product with a third-party app such as Facebook or Twitter; or log in to your account by using your Facebook or Gmail profile. Once you direct us to share your data with a third party, that data is governed by the third-party’s privacy policy. You can revoke your consent to share with the third party at any time in your account settings.

Bluesmart will not sell or license your personal information to third parties without your consent except in connection with the sale or transfer of a product line or division. Under no circumstance will Bluesmart share personal information for any commercial or marketing purpose unrelated to the delivery of our Product and services without asking you first. It is Bluesmart's practice to notify you if you are registering for a program which is conducted in conjunction with another company that may require access to your personal information.

Bluesmart may share your personal information with vendors with whom Bluesmart contracts to carry out business activities for Bluesmart (such as the shipping of products you ordered). If Bluesmart provides your personal information to vendors to assist us with our business activities, it is Bluesmart's practice to require those vendors to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for Bluesmart.

We give users the opportunity to "opt out" of having their personal information shared with third parties, subject to the conditions presented below. If you prefer to "opt out" of having your information shared with third parties, then you can notify us by writing to us at support@bluesmart.com. Your instructions to limit the sharing of your information with third parties will be processed as soon as reasonably practicable.

Irrespective of the above points, Bluesmart reserves the right to disclose your personal information to respond to authorized information requests from government authorities, to address national security situations, or when otherwise required by law. We further reserve the right to disclose such information when Bluesmart reasonably believes that it is needed to identify, contact, or bring legal action against a party who may be violating Bluesmart's Terms of Service or may be causing injury to or interference with Bluesmart’s rights or property, registered customers or potential customers of Bluesmart, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

How does Bluesmart secure personal information

Our Site and our App have security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control. Bluesmart employs reasonable security measures consistent with standard industry practice to help protect against public access to personally identifiable and account activity information collected on and used by Bluesmart at this Site. For example, we work to protect the security of your personal information by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

In addition, your personal information can be accessed by a restricted number of Bluesmart employees. We train our employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage customer data appropriately and securely.

Personally identifiable information and account activity are also protected through the use of user names and passwords. In order to help maintain the security of your information, you should protect the confidentiality of your user name and password. You must promptly notify us if your user name or password is lost, stolen, or used without permission. In such an event, we will note that you have canceled your user name or password in our system and will update our records accordingly.

It is Bluesmart's practice to secure each web page that collects personal information on our Site. However, the confidentiality of personal information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting personal information over the Internet. Bluesmart cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your personal information; therefore, when submitting personal information on our Site or through our App, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks.

In addition, our Site and our App may contain links to other web sites. We try to make sure that these links are to other, helpful web sites, but you should be aware that when you click on links and/or ad banners that take you to third-party web sites, you will be subject to the third parties' privacy policies, not ours. While we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, we are not responsible for the actions and privacy policies of third parties and other web sites. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement and user terms and conditions whenever interacting with, and prior to providing any personal information to, any other web site. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by Bluesmart on our Site or our App. You should check the privacy policies of such third-party Web sites before submitting personal information.

Does Bluesmart transfer personal information to different jurisdictions?

Please be aware that information you provide to us or we obtain as a result of your use of our Site or our App may be processed and transferred to countries other than the country in which you are resident, including the United States. The privacy and data protection laws in such countries may not be equivalent to the laws in your country of residence. By using our Site or our App, or providing us with your information, you consent to this collection, transfer, storage, and processing of information to and in such countries.

How does Bluesmart protect the privacy of children?

Bluesmart does not knowingly collect or use any personal information from minors younger than 13 through our Site or our App. We do not knowingly allow minors younger than 13 to order our products, communicate with us, or use any of our online services. If you are a parent and become aware that your child has provided us with information, please contact us using one of the methods specified below, and we will work with you to address this issue.

How may I correct personal information or delete it from current customer records?

We rely on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary. You may access and update your personal information on our Site. Alternatively, if any of your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, we will correct, update, or remove (unless we are required by law to retain such information) that personal data provided to us. This can be done by contacting us at support@bluesmart.com. We may decline to process requests where the burden or expense of doing so would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than you would be violated. For our record keeping purposes, we will retain certain personal information you submit in conjunction with commercial transactions.

Why does Bluesmart use "cookies" and other tracking technologies?

A "cookie" is a file that our webserver may send to your computer when you access our Site. This file is then stored on your computer. After you have entered personal information into a form or data field on our Site, Bluesmart may use cookies and certain other technologies to allow that Web site to "remember" your personal preferences, such as sections of that Web site that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user ID. We do not store any personal information or payment information in cookies.

Cookies can also help Bluesmart see which areas of the site are popular and which are not, allowing Bluesmart to improve and update our Site based on data such as total number of visitors and pages viewed. Passive information collection technologies can also make your use of our Site easier by allowing Bluesmart to provide better service, customize experiences based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve our Site.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to instruct your browser to prevent the use of cookies. (The “Help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether). If you disable cookies, you may still use our Site, but certain aspects of the experience may be impacted.

We may associate information we collect via cookies with the personal information we collect online. We may use the combined information, for example, to personalize your experience on our Site or to personalize marketing communications we may send to you.

What types of cookies and other tracking technologies does Bluesmart use?

Bluesmart uses two main types of cookies on our Site; session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session; that is, when you leave our Site. Session cookies allow the website to recognize you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use our Site more efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online shopping basket.

Persistent cookies are stored on your computer or device between browsing sessions until they expire or are deleted. They therefore enable the website to recognize you on your return, remember your preferences, and tailor services to you.

In addition to session cookies and persistent cookies, there may be other cookies which are set by the website which you have chosen to visit, such as this website, in order to provide us or third parties with information.

What choices do I have about Bluesmart's use of cookies and other tracking technologies?

We give users the opportunity to "opt out" of having their personal information used for purposes not directly related to the operation of the service at the point where we ask for the information. If you prefer to "opt out" and not have us send you material we think may be of interest to you, such as promotional mailings/e-mails from us and sites and companies we own or work with, then you can notify us by writing to us at support@bluesmart.com. Your instructions to limit the use of your information will be processed as soon as reasonably practicable.

How does Bluesmart handle my payment information?

Bluesmart does not have direct access to your payment information. Bluesmart uses the payment processors PayPal or Stripe to handle its online transactions. You may have to register with PayPal or Stripe in order to use their services. PayPal and Stripe use the payment-related information that they receive from you in order to fulfil requests to process payment transactions, to facilitate billing, and to otherwise deliver payment services. PayPal's full privacy policy can be viewed here. Stripe’s full privacy policy can be viewed here.
