Last updated: Nov 1, 2023

  1. Introduction

At BlueFaucet Inc. (“us”, “we”, “our” or “BlueFaucet”) we value your privacy and the importance of safeguarding your data. This Privacy Policy outlines how BlueFaucet Inc. handles the personal information collected through our website, www.bluefaucet.com, and our mobile application (collectively, “BlueFaucet”). This policy applies to all users in the United States and internationally where applicable.

We work closely with merchants who use BlueFaucet’s services. While the merchants may collect and maintain their clients’ personal information, we also want to make it clear that we have certain rights to use the collected data. Please read this Privacy Policy and our User Agreement carefully to understand our practices and your options.

  1. Definition of “Personal Information”

“Personal Information” refers to any data that directly identifies you or can reasonably be used to identify you. This information may include, but is not limited to, your name, postal address, email address, and telephone number.

  1. Information Collection

We collect information in the following ways:

  • Actively Submitted Information: We collect information that you voluntarily provide when you use BlueFaucet’s services, such as joining a merchant’s membership, contacting customer service, or responding to surveys.
  • Passively Collected Information: We employ passive data collection technologies to gather unidentifiable information about your interactions with BlueFaucet. We may use this data to enhance your experience, analyze trends, and perform general administrative tasks.
  • Merchant-Collected Information: When transactions or inquiries are made through BlueFaucet, the merchants may collect personal information. The data collected by merchants is governed by their individual privacy policies, but BlueFaucet retains the rights to use this data for analytics, marketing, and other business-related purposes.
  • Use of Personal Information

We use your personal information to respond to your inquiries, provide customer support, and remember your preferences. We may also use this information for business purposes such as analytics, marketing, or other promotional activities.

  1. Choices and Control

You have options to control the personal information we collect:

  • Data Limitation: You may limit the amount and type of personal information that BlueFaucet receives about you by choosing not to enter any personal information into forms or data fields on BlueFaucet. However, some services may only be provided to you if you provide us with appropriate personal information.
  • Opt-Out: You can opt-out from tracking technologies through your browser settings.

If you are a merchant partnering with BlueFaucet, you agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations concerning the collection, use, and protection of clients’ personal information. You further agree to use clients’ personal information only for the purposes explicitly permitted by the applicable laws and in accordance with your own privacy policy. BlueFaucet may audit your compliance with these requirements to ensure the privacy and security of clients’ personal information.

By using BlueFaucet’s platform, merchants agree to indemnify and hold harmless BlueFaucet Inc. from any claims, damages, or liabilities arising from the merchants’ collection, use, or disclosure of clients’ personal information.

  1. Data Security and Compliance

The security of your personal information is important to us. We employ a number of organizational, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information we collect. However, security risk is inherent in all internet and information technologies and we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting personal information over the Internet, especially personal information related to your health. BlueFaucet cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your personal information; therefore, when submitting personal information to BlueFaucet, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks.

We also expect our partnered merchants to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. However, BlueFaucet does not control or have access to the personal information collected and maintained by merchants. Therefore, clients are encouraged to review the merchants’ privacy policies to understand how their personal information will be used, stored, and protected.

  1. Disclosure of Personal Information

As a general rule, BlueFaucet does not generally share your personal information with third parties, except for legitimate business purposes or as required by law. You will be given the opportunity to opt-in or opt-out of such sharing. If BlueFaucet provides your personal information to individuals and entities that assist us with our business activities, it is BlueFaucet’s practice to require those individuals and entities to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for BlueFaucet. BlueFaucet 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.

  1. Data Retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary for the purpose for which that data was collected and to the extent required by applicable law. When we no longer need personal data, we will remove it from our systems and/or take steps to anonymize it.

  1. Children’s Privacy

We take the privacy of children very seriously and are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).We do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personal information from children under 13.
