1. Information Collected Through Our Services

We gather two basic types of information through the Services: personally identifiable information that identifies a person as an individual ("Personal Information") and non-personally identifiable information, which includes aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses and any other information that does not reveal a person's specific identity ("Non-Personal Information").

 

Personal Information. You will be required to submit personal information to use our Services.  The initial account registration requirements are your name, e-mail address, and password.  BlueJar also considers all Content that you uplead to us to be Personal Information.  Additionally, if and when you order products or services, we will need the shipping address, billing name and address, as well as the credit card number and expiration date.  Further, if you wish to send email invitations to friends or family to allow them view your Content or participate in our Service, you may enter their email addresses using our Share Service. Your BlueJar account also includes personal information for each person or group for which you have chosen to create a jar.

 

Non-Personal Information. When you visit and interact with the Services, we and our service providers and business partners may collect Non-Personal Information from sources such as server log files, environmental variables (such as your MAC address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, OS version, Internet browser, and Internet browser version) and from scanning navigational data to collect Non-Personal Information about our users in order to help us deliver better service and user experience. Such Non-Personal Information could include the web site you were on before coming to BlueJar, IP addresses, or areas of site being clicked on most frequently. We and our service providers (including ad servers, outbound email vendors, affiliate vendors and search engine advertising agencies, and providers of web analytics tools) and business partners may also use "cookies" as well as so-called "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" and other similar technologies to help us deliver better service and user experience and to facilitate your ongoing access to and use of our Services. Cookies are small data files stored by your web browser on your computer's hard drive. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular cookie, or cookies from a particular website, to your computer. If you choose to reject all cookies, you may not be able to access the Services.

 

2. How We Use the Information We Collect?
Personal Information. We may use Personal Information in the following ways:

Fulfillment of Requests. We may use Personal Information to fulfill the purpose for which such Personal Information was provided (e.g., to fulfill your purchase or other transaction).

 

Administrative Communications. From time to time, we may send you service announcement updates with important information about BlueJar. Service announcements may contain information vital to your account, so members may not unsubscribe from service announcements.

Other Communications. We may notify you via email or through the mail about new features, products and promotions. We may also send you information on carefully screened third parties whose products or services may be of interest to you. If you wish to unsubscribe from these mailings, please review the instructions in the Section 6 ("Opt-Out") below.

 

Contests and Surveys. We may occasionally request Personal Information through surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. The Personal Information collected is only used for purposes of improving user satisfaction with BlueJar products and services, or in some cases, to notify winners and to deliver prizes. No Personal Information collected through these means is shared with or available to other third parties for such third parties' direct marketing purposes.

Testimonials. Testimonials are used to show benefits to certain programs BlueJar offers. BlueJar always seeks consent prior to posting any testimonial in which Personal Information is included.

 

Advertisements for BlueJar.  We may occasionally use personal information such as photos or stories submitted by users in advertisements for BlueJar.  BlueJar always seeks the consent of the user prior to posting any Personal Information in advertisements. 

 

Customer Service. Any Personal Information obtained through your contact with our Customer Service team or communications with us, such as chat or emails, may be recorded to help us provide better service.

 

Internal Business Purposes. We may also use Personal Information about you for our internal business purposes, such as data analysis, audits and so forth.

Sharing with Friends and Family. Sharing the content of your jars electronically through BlueJar is one of the key benefits we offer. BlueJar allows you to send others a one-time email to view Content or invite recipients to participate in that website.

 

BlueJar will not use the email addresses that you enter to take advantage of our services to send any type of direct marketing to your friends and family.  If a friend or family member signs up with BlueJar or we receive their email address from another unrelated source, we may communicate with them in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  

 

Reminder Service. Your BlueJar account also contains settings allowing you to customize how often you would like to be reminded to add Content to a particular jar and allows you to enter other information such as birthdays, anniversaries, and other key dates and details about friends and family.  You can use this information to help keep in touch with friends and family on important dates.  BlueJar may send you email reminders of the personalized dates you have entered in this calendar. If you do not wish to receive these reminders, you may unsubscribe from this email reminder service by:

 

Combining Information. At times, we may combine Personal Information collected from our Services and other information you shared with us to customize our service to you and improve your experience. For example, we may recommend products or offers you may be interested in based on what you have liked in the past, or remind you that you have an "active" shopping cart waiting for you. Additionally, in order to provide certain services to you, we may on occasion supplement the Personal Information you submitted to us with information from third-party sources.

 

Non-Personal Information. Because Non-Personal Information does not personally identify you, we may use such information for any purpose. In addition, we reserve the right to share Non-Personal Information, which does not personally identify you, with third-parties, for any purpose. In some instances, we may combine Non-Personal Information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your geographic location). If we do combine any Non-Personal Information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information hereunder as long as it is so combined.

 

3. Disclosures of Personal Information

BlueJar shares Personal Information with carefully screened third-party service providers to provide you with the products, services, and information you have requested.

Forums. Through the Services you are able to post information and materials that may be  viewed by others that you select.  Please note that any information you disclose through such services to other users may become public information and may be available to users of the Services and to the general public.  WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE OF ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU VOLUNTARILY DISCLOSE THROUGH THE SERVICES.

4. Protecting Your Content
BlueJar is designed to give you the ability to control who may view the Content and any associated information stored in your BlueJar account. We seek not to make your Content publicly accessible, except by your explicit action, or as otherwise noted in this Privacy Policy (including in Section 3 of this Privacy Policy). Please note that if you choose to post a link to your BlueJar Content on your own or others' websites, or you share your Content with your friends or family members and they post your invitation on a website or forward to other individuals, this Content may be accessible to others who view the email invitation or visit these websites. We have no control over, and are not responsible or liable for, the privacy of any Content that you have shared with others.

 

In order to provide quality products, the BlueJar employees and third-party service providers fulfilling your order or providing Customer Support to you may see your Content.

7. Security
BlueJar seeks to have reasonable security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.  Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  As a result, although we strive to protect Personal Information about you, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us through or in connection with the Services or that is stored by us.  You acknowledge and agree that any information you transmit through the Services or upload for storage in connection with the Services is so transmitted or stored at your own risk.  If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with Section 11 ("Contact Us") below (note that if you choose to notify us via physical mail, this will delay the time it takes for us to respond to the problem).
