1. WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU COLLECT AND HOW DO YOU COLLECT IT?
At various times, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address, contact phone number or other information. Information collected is often defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable:
2. Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, email address, or phone number. Downloading and using an App may allow the Company to “recognize” you to allow us to personalize our service for you.
As is true of most apps and web sites, we gather certain information (such as mobile provider, operating system, etc.) automatically and store it in log files. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the app, to track users movements around the app and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may link this automatically-collected data to certain Personally Identifiable Information.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
If you are a BlueprintNYC Client using our meeting app–generic or custom-labeled for your event–when you register with us via our Web Site to create and manage Events, we will ask you for personally identifiable information, such as your first and last name, company name, email address, billing address, and credit card information. You may review and update the personally identifiable information in your profile by logging in and editing such information in your dashboard. If you decide to delete all of your information we may cancel your account. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for reasonable business purposes.
If you choose to allow an App to collect your location data, such location data will be available to BlueprintNYC or the applicable BlueprintNYC Client. In addition, if you have an account with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Foursquare or other similar websites (each a “Social Network”), your Social Network identity, including your public picture, may be associated with your location data. Blueprint NYC, LLC is the owner of the information collected through the Service.
No Information Collected from Children. Company will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 13. If Company obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately removed from any access. Because it does not collect such information, Company has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties. Company has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).
