We collect and process personal information about you with your consent or as necessary to provide the Services you use, operate our business, meet our contractual and legal obligations, protect the security of our systems and our customers, or fulfill other legitimate interests.
We use personal information collected through our Services for purposes described in this Policy or disclosed to you in our Services or in connection with our Services. For example, we may use your information to:
We do not share your personal information with third parties other than as follows:
We may also share aggregated or deidentified information.
bluedog takes reasonable steps to help protect your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
Personal information we collect may be stored and processed in your region, in the United States or in any other country where we or our affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers maintain facilities. We maintain primary data centres in the UK. We take steps designed to ensure that the data we collect under this Policy is processed according to the provisions of this policy and applicable law wherever the data is located.
When we transfer personal information from the European Economic Area and Switzerland to other countries, some of which have not been determined by the European Commission to have an adequate level of data protection, we refer to the UK Data Protection Act, published May 23rd 2018, in an effort to help ensure your rights and protections.
Third parties engaged by bluedog to process personal data and any of our affiliates receiving personal data must also provide adequate protections for the personal data that are no less protective than those set out in this policy.
We also may be required to disclose an individual’s personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
bluedog has responsibility for the processing of personal information it receives and subsequently transfers to a third party.
We retain your personal information for as long as necessary to provide services requested by you, or for other essential purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. Because these needs can vary for different data types in the context of different services, actual retention periods can vary significantly. The criteria used to determine retention include:
1. How long is the personal information needed to provide applicable services? This includes such things as maintaining and improving the performance of the Services, enabling system security measures, and maintaining appropriate business and financial records.
2. Do users provide, create, or maintain the data with the expectation we will retain it until they affirmatively remove it? In such cases, we may maintain the data until actively deleted by the user.
3. Is the personal information of a sensitive type? If so, a shortened retention time may be appropriate.
4. Are we subject to a legal, contractual, or similar obligation to retain the data? Examples can include mandatory data retention laws in the applicable jurisdiction, government orders to preserve data, or data that must be retained for the purposes of litigation.
If you wish to ask for access, correction, or deletion of any of your personal information held by us or a change in the way we use your information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org However, we may decline requests that are unreasonable, prohibited by law, or are not required to be honored by applicable law.
You can opt out of receiving promotional emails from bluedog by following the instructions in those emails. You can also manage your email contact preferences. However, if you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your accounts or our ongoing business relations. You can also send requests about changes to your information or your contact preferences, including requests to opt-out of sharing your personal information with third parties, by emailing email@example.com.
