Blue Fever Privacy Policy

Effective Date of Privacy Policy:  July 16, 2017

This Privacy Policy describes what information Blue Fever Inc. and its United States-based affiliate and subsidiary companies (together, “Blue Fever” or “we” and sometimes “us”) collect about you and why, how we use and share that information, and the choices we offer. 

WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY?
This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) is incorporated into the Blue Fever Terms of Use, and applies to information obtained by us when you sign up for, use, access or otherwise interact with any Blue Fever websites, products, services and anywhere else where this policy is posted (collectively, “Services”). This Policy does not apply to information that is collected outside the Services. This Policy applies regardless of whether you access the Services using a personal computer, mobile device, or other equipment or device.  If you disagree with the terms of this Policy, please do not use the Services.   

WILL THIS POLICY EVER CHANGE?
We may change this Policy from time to time.  If we make changes, we will notify you by posting the updated policy and revising the “Effective Date” above.  Use of the Services after the posted Effective Date means you accept the current version of the Policy, including any changes made prior to the posted Effective Date. If we make any material changes to this Policy, we will also notify you by email or by means of a notice on the Services. We encourage you to review the Policy whenever you use our Services to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you.

Web Browser Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is sent by a website to your computer or mobile device where it is stored by your web browser.  A cookie contains limited non-personal data, usually a unique identifier and the name of the site.  This enables a website to recognize you as you move around the site and/or each time you revisit. Cookies are used for a wide variety of purposes such as to keep you logged in or to remember what’s in your basket if you’re shopping online, to remember your preferences and settings, to analyze how the site is used by you, and to serve advertising to you.

Cookies may be served to you by the website you are visiting (a “first party cookie”) or by another organization providing services to that website, such as an analytics company or advertising network (a “third party cookie”).  They will either be stored for the duration of your visit (a “session cookie”) or they will remain on your device for a fixed period, which could be months or even years, to remember you across multiple browsing sessions (a “persistent cookie”).

Tracking Technologies: Web Beacons/Gifs, Pixels, Page Tags, Script

Web pages, emails and mobile apps may contain a small transparent image file or line of code to record how you interact with them.  They are often used in conjunction with web browser cookies (or the unique identifier of your mobile device) and they are used to help website and app publishers to better analyze and improve their services and to target advertising based on your browsing behavior and interests.  For example, by knowing which web pages you visit or which elements of a page you viewed, when and for how long, whether you viewed and/or clicked on an advertisement on a site or whether you opened or clicked on marketing emails sent to you.

Tracking Via Mobile Apps

When you use our Mobile Apps we may record unique identifiers associated with your device (such as the device ID and IP address), your activity within the App and your network location.  This information may be used to analyze and improve our services and to serve advertising to you.

How We Use Cookies

We use cookies and tracking technologies for a variety of reasons, such as to enable us to recognize when you have logged in, to improve your experience of the services and possibly to deliver advertising. For example, we use these technologies to keep you logged in, to allow us to know when and for how long you use our services, and to remember your preferences and settings and other functionality you have requested, such as remembering your username and password so that you do not need to login each time you visit.  We may also use cookies and tracking technologies to deliver advertising and marketing messages relevant to you – a common practice across the internet and known as interest-based advertising or behavioral advertising.

WHAT ARE MY CHOICES?
You may opt out of receiving interest-based advertising by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance's opt out page at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.  In addition, you can opt out of Google Analytics by visiting their opt out tools site at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. When you receive promotional communications from us, you may indicate a preference to stop receiving further promotional communications from us and you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the promotional e-mail you receive or by contacting us directly at info@bluefevr.com.  Despite your indicated e-mail marketing preferences, we may still send you relationship and/or transactional e-mails regarding the Services, including, for example, administrative confirmations and notices of updates to our Policy, if we choose to provide such notices to you in this manner.

HOW LONG DO YOU KEEP MY INFORMATION?
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as necessary to provide the relevant Service to you or for so as long as reasonably required to satisfy the purpose for which you submitted the information.

WHAT ABOUT LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES?
Links to third party websites may be made available through the Services. Clicking on such advertisements and links will direct you to the website or application of a third party. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. Any information you provide via those sites is subject to the Privacy Policies on those websites and is not covered by this Policy. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every website you visit or application you use. This Policy applies solely to information collected by us through the Services and does not apply to third party websites or applications. The ability to access third party information from the Services and to link to other websites and locations from the Services is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such third parties, their products, their services, their websites and locations or the content they make available on the Services or on their websites and locations.

HOW IS MY INFORMATION PROTECTED?
We are committed to protecting the security of your information. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. These measures vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect. Even though we have taken significant steps to protect your information, no company, including us, can fully eliminate security risks associated with information. We cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your information.

WHAT IF MY INFORMATION IS INCORRECT?
You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you that identifies you personally. If you would like a copy of some or all of this information, please contact us at info@bluefevr.com. We may charge a reasonable fee for this service. We want to make sure that your information is accurate and up-to-date. You may ask us to correct or to remove information that you think is inaccurate. We also provide you with tools and account settings to access or modify some of the information you provided to us and associated with your account.

WHAT IS YOUR POLICY REGARDING CHILDREN?
Blue Fever does not direct its Services to children under the age of thirteen (13) and does not knowingly collect information from such children.  We require all users of the Services to be at least thirteen (13) years old.  If we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under the age of thirteen (13), we will promptly delete all information associated with such account.  By using the Services, you are representing that you are at least thirteen (13) years old. 

MY CALIFORNIA RIGHTS.
California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their “personal information” (as defined under the California Online Privacy Protection Act), if any, for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of “personal information” disclosed to those parties. If you are a California resident and would like to request this information, please submit your request in an email to info@bluefevr.com with the subject line “BLUE FEVER PRIVACY POLICY”.

Blue Fever may limit the website’s availability, in whole or in part, concerning any person, geographic area or jurisdiction, at any time in its sole discretion.
