BlendIM does not sell your Personal Information to third parties, and we maintain information about you in our business records while you are a customer, or until it is no longer needed for business, tax, or legal purposes. We have implemented appropriate security controls to protect Personal Information when stored or transmitted by BlendIM.
We share your Personal Information only with third parties that perform services on our behalf, and only as necessary for them to perform those services. We require those third parties to protect any Personal Information they may receive in a manner consistent with this policy, and we do not provide Personal Information to third parties for marketing of their own products and services without your consent. BlendIM may be required to disclose Personal Information to third parties in response to court orders or lawful requests by public authorities.
We have established policies and practices for our Customers and Users to limit certain types of solicitation communications from Softlinx, including marketing contacts made via telephone or e-mail. You may choose to stop receiving our newsletters or marketing emails or calls, and request to be removed from these telemarketing lists.
Information that you provide to third parties is not covered by this Policy. For example: When you download applications or make an online purchase from a third party while using BlendIM’s services, the information collected by the third party is not subject to this Policy. If you use public forums — such as social networking services, Internet bulletin boards, chat rooms, or blogs on BlendIM or third party websites — you should be aware that any Personal Information you disclose publicly can be read, collected, or used by others. Once you choose to reveal Personal Information on such a site, the information is publicly available, and BlendIM cannot prevent distribution and use of that information by other parties.
Our websites may contain links to other websites. This Privacy Notice only applies to BlendIM’s website, and does not apply to other third party websites for which our websites may contain links.
Information about our Customers and Users, including Personal Information, may be transferred as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider, as well as in the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which Customer and User records would be transferred to another entity as a result of such a proceeding. In such an event, BlendIM will notify via email and/or a prominent announcement on our website of any change of ownership and uses of your Personal Information as well as any choices you may have regarding the disposal of your Personal Information.
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
