Your privacy is important to DataBlend. So, we’ve developed a Privacy Statement that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your personal information.
This Privacy Statement applies to DataBlend, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and any affiliated companies, and to the websites available under the domain www.DataBlend.com (together, the “Site”).
This Privacy Statement relates to DataBlend and the use of DataBlend services available through the Site only (the “Products”). This Privacy Statement does not apply to use of personal information in connection with employment.
Personal information means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular individual or household.
You may be asked to provide your personal information any time you are in contact with DataBlend. We may share this information with our affiliates and they may use it consistently with this Privacy Statement. We may also combine it with other information to provide information about our Products, services, and content. You are not required to provide the personal information that we request, but, if you chose not to do so, we may not be able to provide you with our Products or respond to any queries you may have.
Here are some examples of the types of personal information DataBlend may collect and how we may use it:
We collect and process personal information from you only when:
As particular examples, we may use your personal information as follows:
We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
DataBlend’s Site, Products, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of the Sites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the delivery of our services. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that IP addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information.
If you want to disable cookies, most browsers will permit you to do so. Please note that certain features of the DataBlend Site will not be available once cookies are disabled.
We also gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include IP addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date and time stamp, clickstream data, state change information, and metadata.
We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the services and Products, to learn about user behavior on the Site, to improve our Product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. DataBlend may use this information in our marketing services.
In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the DataBlend Site. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on the Site. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.
Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
At times DataBlend may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with DataBlend to provide Products and services, or that help DataBlend market to customers. Personal information will only be shared by DataBlend to provide or improve our Products, and services; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.
DataBlend shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering Products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our Products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever DataBlend operates.
It may be necessary — by law, legal process, litigation, or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence — for DataBlend to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
DataBlend takes the security of your personal information very seriously. DataBlend Products protect your personal information during transit using encryption such as Transport Layer Security (TLS). When your personal information is stored by DataBlend, we use computer systems with limited access housed in facilities using physical security measures. Your stored data is stored in encrypted form including when we utilize third party storage.
When you use some DataBlend Products, services, or applications or post on a DataBlend forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information and content you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.
DataBlend allows you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Statement unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
You can confirm that your contact information and preferences are up to date by logging in to your account through the Site. For other personal information we hold, we will provide you with a copy of such information upon your request. You may also request that we correct inaccurate data or delete data about you if DataBlend is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous or vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made through by contacting DataBlend (see Section 14, below).
We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal information from children under 13, or equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction, without verifiable parental consent. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13, or equivalent minimum age depending on jurisdiction, without first receiving verifiable parental consent, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
Children under the age of 13, or equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction, are not permitted to create their own DataBlend Accounts or to use our Products.
To provide location-based services on DataBlend Products, DataBlend and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your computer, browser, or DataBlend device. Where available, location-based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices’ approximate location. Unless you provide consent, this location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by DataBlend and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, your device may share its geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.
Some location-based services offered by DataBlend require your personal information for the feature to work.
In order to function, DataBlend Products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our Products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties — for example, a third-party service developed using our Products. Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.
In connection with DataBlend’s Services, DataBlend (and its Sub-Processors) may process outside the EEA, or the UK (as applicable) certain Customer Personal Data protected by Applicable Data Protection Laws in respect of which Customer (or a Controller Affiliate) is the Controller. The parties agree that when the transfer of Customer Personal Data protected by Applicable Data Protection Laws from the Customer (or a Controller Affiliate) to DataBlend is a Restricted Transfer then it shall be subject to the appropriate Standard Contractual Clauses. As a Data Processor, processes are in place for DataBlend to respond to any requests from a Data Subject for access, corrections, or deletion of personal data as mandated by GDPR.
We value your privacy and your rights as a data subject and have therefore appointed Prighter Group with its local partners as our privacy representative and your point of contact.
Prighter gives you an easy way to exercise your privacy-related rights (e.g. requests to access or erase personal data). If you want to contact us via our representative, Prighter or make use of your data subject rights, please visit the following website. https://prighter.com/cc/DataBlend
The provisions in this Section 11 apply only to the extent that you are a resident of California, USA.
If you are a California resident, you may have the following rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”).
Please note that we may claim legal exemptions for certain types of personal information from all or certain parts of the CCPA pursuant to various CCPA exemptions.
DataBlend does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you.
DataBlend may offer interactive services which allow you to post content to share publicly or with contacts. At any time you can delete or remove content you have posted using the deletion or removal options within our services. If you have questions about how to remove content you have posted, contact DataBlend (see Section 14, below). Although we offer deletion capability for our services, you should be aware that the removal of content may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information posted through the services. For example, if your posted content has been copied and reposted by another user, you will not be able to remove such content.
To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate our privacy and security guidelines to DataBlend employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company. We use physical, technical, and organizational safeguards designed to protect your personal information. However, despite these controls, we cannot completely ensure or warrant the security of your personal information.
If you have any questions or concerns about DataBlend’s Privacy Statement or data processing or if you would like to make a complaint about a possible breach of local privacy laws, please contact us. You can always contact us as set out below.
All such communications are examined and replies issued where appropriate as soon as possible. If you are unsatisfied with the reply received, you may refer your complaint to the relevant regulator in your jurisdiction. If you ask us, we will endeavor to provide you with information about relevant complaint avenues which may be applicable to your circumstances.
DataBlend may update its Privacy Statement from time to time. When we change the policy in a material way, a notice will be posted on our Site along with the updated Privacy Statement.
