We understand your concerns about privacy. We want you to understand what types of information we collect and what may happen to that information if you install the Blinkbox Lab’s application(s) or visit the Blinkbox Labs Website(s).
USER ACCOUNTS AND COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
You are not required to create a user account or provide any personal information in order to visit the Blinkbox Labs website. You are required to create a user account, however, to use our application. During registration, you are required to login using Facebook connect. This gives us data from your public profile (surname, forename, age, gender, email address, profile photos, hobbies, friend list).
We also collect information if you contact us for support or help, submit an application or otherwise communicate with us. The information which you supply to us enables us to customise and enhance the services we provide to you.
COLLECTION OF INFORMATION AS PART OF USING BLINKBOX LABS SERVICE
In addition to the information that you provide to us when you register for a user account, we collect information about the content you access on the Blinkbox Labs applications. The types of information we collect includes your browser type, device type, time zone, language, and other information related to the manner in which you access Blinkbox Labs content. This data is collected in our databases and via external tools (Software Development Kit) implemented by our partners, which are an integral part of the application. Below is a list of SDKs we have implemented:
- Facebook (authentication & analytical SDK)
- Firebase (analytical SDK)
- Amplitude (analytical SDK)
- Sentry (Error/Crash reporting SDK)
In addition to the methods described above, we may also collect information using cookies or other technologies when you access our website. You may decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features, you may be required to enter your password more frequently during a session.
USE OF INFORMATION AND ANALYTICS
The data collected is used to:
- Provide our applications
- Provide customer support
- Improve our applications
- Develop new applications
- Make statistics based on your use of the applications. For example; number of questions answered
- Communicate with you
In addition, if you choose to use the Blinkbox Labs applications to share content with another person, we will use the recipient’s email address or user account information to provide that service, but we will not use that email address for any other purpose.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
Working with third parties
We may work with trusted third parties to facilitate one or more aspects of the products and services that we provide to you and to conduct research related to Internet usage, and we may provide some of your personal information directly to these third parties. For example, we may use a third party payment processor to process payments. We may also share your device ID in working with third parties who assist us in delivering advertisements to you. These parties are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the information we provide to them for any other purpose other than those discussed above, unless you have explicitly agreed or given your prior permission to them for additional uses.
Sharing as required by law or asset sale
In the event that we or certain of our assets are acquired, user information may be included among the transferred assets.
Although we strive to protect the personal information of our users, we will release personal information if required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary. We follow the law whenever we receive requests about you from a government or related to a lawsuit. We will notify you when we are asked to hand over your personally identifiable information in this way unless we are legally prohibited from doing so. When we receive requests like this, we will only release your personally identifiable information if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary or appropriate under applicable law. Nothing in this policy is intended to limit any legal defences or objections that you may have to a third party’s request to disclose your information.
We will keep your information only for as long as we need it to provide you services, manage our business or as required by law or contract.
TRANSFER OF INFORMATION
We have agreements with third parties and have adopted other security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and/or unauthorised alteration of the information under our control or under the control of our service providers. Your personally identifiable information is protected by utilising both online and offline security methods, including firewalls, passwords and restricted physical access to the places where your information is stored. Although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain free from security issues. In the event of a security breach involving your personal information, we will make any legally required disclosures to you in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with the legitimate interests of law enforcement, or any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Blinkbox Labs. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your password, credit card information or national identification number in an unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
