01.INTRODUCTION

THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVERS YOUR USE OF THIS WEBSITE, OPERATED BY BLUMLINE, AS WELL AS ANY INTERACTION YOU HAVE WITH BLUMLINE.

At Blumline, we care deeply about your privacy and security. In short, we do not share your information with third parties unless it is to help us provide a service or if we are compelled to for legal reasons. We protect your information using industry-standard methods, including encryption and passwords. In some situations, we direct you to a third party service to help you complete a task. We will always notify you before doing so, because you will then be subject to that third party's privacy policy.

02.INFORMATION WE COLLECT

ANALYTICS

Aside from information you voluntarily submit, we collect industry-standard information on your visit to our website ("usage data"). This usage data consists of information about the software and hardware you use to visit our website, your general geographic location, your network connection, the date and time of your visit(s), and the pages you visit and functions you use. This usage data also includes your IP address, which could potentially be used to personally identify you, although this generally requires a legal action with your internet service provider. In any case, Blumline makes no effort to associate the usage data with you personally, unless necessitated for legal action or to address abuse.

Blumline uses Google Analytics to collect and analyze usage data. This helps us improve our website and business. Google Analytics, as well as myriad other web analytics and tracking services, can track your actions across the internet with the aid of pieces of information stored on your computer called "cookies." While Google Analytics can track your actions across all of the websites that use it, The Confluence of Craft can only see your actions on Blumline-operated websites.

Websites that use services like Google Analytics (almost every website in operation) are essentially allowing that service to know that the user has visited the website in question and to gather other information. Again, this information is generally not associated with you personally, but if you are concerned with the practice, you can exclude your browser from Google Analytics by installing this tool. You may also view Google's privacy policy. A further way to minimize the amount of information that Google collects across the web is to sign out of any Google accounts (used for Gmail, etc.) when not using them or, even better, to only sign in to Google accounts in a "private" or "incognito" browser window, or to clear your browser's cookies regularly.

It should be noted that most major websites use multiple analytics and tracking services, in addition to advertising services, while Blumline does not. By limiting our use to just Google Analytics, we therefore minimize your exposure to web-wide tracking while still providing us with valuable statistics.

03.INFORMATION YOU SUBMIT

Blumline provides a contact form on this website to allow you to contact us. We never share information you submit to us with third parties, except with companies that help us perform everyday business functions, like sending you an e-mail newsletter (with your permission) or maintaining a customer database. When we use outside services, we require that these services do not share your personal information either, except as required by law. We also require these services to store your information in a secure manner.

If you have submitted information to Blumline in the past and would like to have it removed from our records, please contact us.

If you purchase from Blumline, you may provide us with your credit card information. We only keep this information long enough to allow us to charge your card. It is then destroyed.

04.THIRD-PARTY TOOLS

We sometimes direct you to use a third-party tool to help you complete a task. We will always warn you before sending you to a third-party tool, and when you use such a tool, you will be subject to its privacy policy.

05.WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION

First, we never give or sell customer data to others for marketing purposes. We do use your information to provide you with the services you requested. These may include replying to you when you contact us, corresponding with you about a purchase, delivering e-newsletters, etc. We may also analyze your information to help us improve the way we do business. Finally, we may have to disclose your information to comply with the law.

If you would like to have your information removed from our records, please contact us.

06.PROTECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

We use industry-standard methods to protect your information, including physical, organizational, and electronic security measures. These include the use of secure locks on physical doors, limited access to personal information by authorized employees, strong passwords, and encryption to make your information extremely difficult to read without the proper credentials. We hold all employees fully accountable for adhering to this privacy policy and to the law.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is never 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the security of your information, but we take care to use industry-standard practices and policies to make it as secure as possible.

07.CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We may update this privacy policy from time to time, so we encourage you to check back occasionally. We will summarize any significant changes to the policy below:
