Website Visitors

 

Like most website operators, blume collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. blume’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how blume’s visitors use its website. From time to time, blume may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

 

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

 

Certain visitors to blume’s websites choose to interact with blume in ways that require blume to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that blume gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example those who wish to receive blume updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, blume collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with blume. blume does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website or product related activities.

blume may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. blume may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, blume does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

 

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

 

blume discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on blume’s behalf or to provide services available at blume’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using blume’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. blume will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, blume discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when blume believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of blume, third parties or the public at large. If you have supplied your email address, blume may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with blume and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. blume takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
