3. TYPES OF PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT
BluJ IT collects Personal Data and Anonymous Data from you when you visit our Site and/or when you download and use the BluJ IT Mobile Appilcations. "Personal Data" means data that allows someone to identify or contact you. Examples of Personal Data could be your name, address, picture, geographic location of your computer or mobile device, telephone number, credit card number, email address, bank account information, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. "Anonymous Data" means data about you that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described below.
Personal Data You Provide To Us
Google for Android platform or Apple for iOS platform (our third-party credit card or payment processor) will collect Personal Data including your credit card number or account information when you add features within the BluJ IT mobile applications or when you upgrade to a PRO version of our software. If you provide us feedback or contact us via email, we will collect your name and email address, IP address, as well as any other content included in the email, in order to send you a reply, and any information that you submit to us. If we conduct a survey in which you participate, we may collect additional profile information. We may also collect Personal Data at other instances in the Site or Application user experience where we state that Personal Data is being collected.
Personal Data You Send to Third Parties
Data and images collected by the BluJ IT mobile applications are never accessed by BluJ IT beyond the confines of the application. Data and images are also never transmitted beyond the device on which the application is operating, unless you specifically request for the data to be sent to another location via file transfer (i.e. Drop Box, SD Card, Google Drive, or iCloud) or email.
When using cloud storage services (i.e. Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud) within BluJ IT mobile applications (i.e. backup and restore functions), BluJ IT mobile applications never access nor store account credentials. Credentials are only collected and validated within the respective cloud storage software. Additionally, data and images stored within these cloud environments are not accessible by BluJ IT or the BluJ IT mobile application except when requested by you via the restore function within the application.
Personal Data Collected by Third Parties
Personal Data Collected via Technology
The Site (which may be hosted by a third-party service provider) collects Personal Data from you, such as browser type, your approximate geographic location of your mobile device or computer (from your Internet Protocol (IP) address), operating system and version, Internet Protocol (IP) address, domain name, information about your application, operating environment and hardware profiles and/or a date/time stamp for your visit. We may also use Identifiers (as defined below) and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and/or your activity on the Site. Like most Internet services, we automatically gather this Personal Data and store it in log files each time you visit the Site.
When you interact with the Site or the mobile applications, we try to make that experience simple and useful. We and our partners use industry standard identifiers, such as cookies or other similar technologies. We also use mobile device identifiers which perform a similar role, like the IDFA used by Apple devices and the UDID used by Android devices. Cookies are small pieces of information which are issued to your computer or mobile device (as the case may be) when you visit a website. The cookies store and sometimes track information about your use of the Site. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web session and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to the Site and will last for longer. We refer to cookies and the mobile device equivalents as "Identifiers".
We use Identifiers to:
- remember that you have visited us before; this means we can identify the number of unique visitors we receive;
- customize elements of the promotional layout and/or content of the pages of the Site or Application;
- collect anonymous statistical information about how you use the Site or App (including how long you spend on the Site or Application) and where you have come to the Site or Application from, so that we can improve the Site and learn which parts of the Site and which functions of the Application are most popular with users
Some of the Identifiers used by the Site are set or accessed (as appropriate) by us, and some by third parties who are delivering services on our behalf.
Most web and mobile device browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set. You can also learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org which includes additional useful information on cookies and how to block cookies using different types of browser or mobile device. Please note, however, that by blocking or deleting cookies used on the Site, you may not be able to take full advantage of the Site.
In addition to cookies, web beacons may be set by us or third parties in respect of your use of the Site. Web beacons are small image files within the content of the Site for analytics purposes so we or third parties can understand parts of the Site that are visited and which functions of the Site are used and whether particular content is of interest.
3rd Party Tracking Technologies
We may partner with a third party to either display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this website and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here (or if located in the European Union click here). Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.

They may be located, or their data processing activities may take place, in the United States of America or elsewhere outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The US and other non-EEA countries do not have similar data protection laws to the European Union, and you should be aware in particular that the law and practice in the United States in respect of law enforcement authority access to data is significantly different from Europe.

7. PERSONAL DATA CHANGES
Access to Data Controlled by our Corporate Members
Upon request we will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. We also acknowledge that you have the right to access your personal information. Where a Member accesses the BluJ IT mobile applications because their employer is a Corporate Member, BluJ IT has no direct relationship with that Member. In that situation, a Member who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should direct his query to the BluJ IT's Corporate Member (the data controller). If the Corporate Member requests BluJ IT to remove the data, we will respond to their request within 30 business days.
BluJ IT will retain data we process on behalf of our Corporate Members for as long as needed to provide services to our Corporate Member. BluJ IT will retain and use this information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
