SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.

When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.


SECTION 2 - CONSENT

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at info@bluubeam.com or mailing us at: BluuBeam PO Box 371790, Key Largo, FL, 33037, United States


SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.


SECTION 4 - SHOPIFY

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.

Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.


Payment:

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

SECTION 5 – MOBILE APPLICATION  “The App”

Our Service provides a technology that is installed in the BluuBeam mobile applications and third-party mobile applications using BluuBeam in applications belonging to our Customers both are referred to as “The App” in this section, and which provides our Customers with real-time analytics and tools to create a better experience for their end users. When a Customer uses our Service, the app may collect personal information from end users (“Customer Data”) that is shared with BluuBeam. This Customer Data is owned by BluuBeam but our customers have access to view some of the Data such as how many times a message has been pushed.  Unless “The App” requires you to sign in, no personal information is retained. Any Customer Data that we maintain or process we consider to be strictly confidential. We collect and process Customer Data solely on behalf of our customers, and in accordance with our agreements with the customers. We do not use or disclose Customer Data except as authorized and required by our customers and provided for in our agreements with our customers.

In this Section, we describe the type of data that is collected through the app and shared with BluuBeam. Customer applications that use The App may use only some of the features and information that BluuBeam can collect. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to the data collection and use practices of BluuBeam, and does not apply to Customer Data or to the data collection practices of our third party Customers that use our Service. It is always a good idea to carefully read the privacy policy of each mobile app you install and use on your mobile device to be sure you understand The App’s data collection and use practices.

Data Collected through The App. Through the course of providing our Service to our Customers, our Customers’ apps will collect information from an end user’s device any time the end user’s app comes within range of a BluuBeam beacon (a small device that uses Bluetooth technology to identify BluuBeam- enabled Customer apps and may be placed in retail stores or other Customer locations). BluuBeam relies on an app-specific identifier that is used to identify a unique app user. This identifier is associated only with the specific Customer app and is not tied to your mobile device. If you delete the Customer app from your device, this identifier will be deleted as well. Relying on this app-specific ID, we collect the time of day when your device is near any of our beacons. We also collect device information, such as the device type, model and operating system version, and current IP address. We use this information to identify when you enter or leave the range of a particular beacon in a Customer’s store or location where they have placed a Beacon in order to provide analytic tools to help promote things that would interest you based on your location. We also collect if you choose to share a message you've found using our app. We don't collect your personal information or who you shared the message with. BluuBeam never collects personally identifying information such as a name, mobile phone number, email address, or other contact information from our Customer’s end users. If you do not want the BluuBeam beacon to identify your mobile device, you can: (a) delete the Customer app or adjust the in-app settings of the Customer app if the app makes that option available, or (b) turn “off” your Bluetooth through your device’s Settings feature.

 

SECTION 6 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

SECTION 7 - SECURITY

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.  Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
