We have implemented these practices for Blu Homes’ website (www.bluhomes.com) and dependent pages. We have instructed our website administrator to include information regarding these privacy practices anywhere on the Blu Homes website where personal information is collected.
Collecting Personal Information
Personal information gathered on our public website means any information that is related to an identified person, or that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to: first and last name; email address; a home, postal or other physical address or other contact information; title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, or personal interests; and other information necessary or useful to provide a product or service that you have requested.
Protecting Personal Information
We use commercially reasonable measures to ensure that personal information gathered about customers interested in financing Blu Homes’ products and services is only accessible by appropriate personnel who have a business need for the information. We inform our personnel about the meaning and requirements of this privacy statement. Furthermore, we utilize certain systems, policies and procedures in an effort to maintain the accuracy of customer information and to protect it from loss, misuse, or alteration.
How We Use Personal Information
We will only disclose personal information about our customers or former customers as permitted or required by law. Information that has been collected is maintained in our records. We use personal information to address your requests for financing, for the sale of related products and services, and to comply with legal requirements. In striving to serve you, we sometimes share customer information with others so they may help us by providing services to us or by providing services on our behalf or jointly with us to you. We do not sell personal information about you to unrelated companies for their independent use.
Domain Name and IP Address
We collect the domain names and IP addresses of our visitors for statistical purposes, to measure use, to improve the content or responsiveness of our site or to customize the content or layout of the site for the individual visitor. We do not disclose this information to third parties. We may also aggregate information relating to our visitors’ traffic patterns from the data that we collect and retain concerning the IP addresses and domain names of our visitors, and we may divulge such aggregate information about our users with third parties such as our business partners, distributors, and service and support providers. You may visit our website anonymously if you wish, by using appropriate software or web services available from or through third parties.
You should know that e-mail is not necessarily secure against all forms of interception. If your communication includes sensitive information about you and you would prefer not to transmit this information in this fashion, please contact us by mail or telephone rather than e-mail.
We collect e-mail addresses that are: volunteered by the visitor; through e-mail messages addressed to our company or its employees; or through visitor responses via the “contact us” portion of the site; or e-mail marketing destination web pages and public events. We use e-mail addresses for marketing purposes and to inform those interested in our products about events, products, services or other items of interest. We may also use e-mail addresses volunteered by our visitors to register the visitor for an extranet account, to process orders for brochures and other written materials, or otherwise to respond to a visitor’s request. You may opt-out of receiving promotional or marketing e-mails at any time by notifying us as a reply to any unwanted e-mail, or by writing to Blu Homes at 130 Turner Street, Suite 610, Waltham, MA 02453, USA. Requests to unsubscribe from Blu Homes e-mails may take 10 business days to process.
This opt-out procedure will not be available for administrative messages such as e-mails that are necessary to provide confirmation of a completed transaction (such as a purchase, service request or change in the visitor’s user profile) or e-mails that confirm a visitor’s status as a registered user of the Blu Homes customer extranet.
Other Personal Information
We may use a mailing address or phone number that a visitor provides for a variety of Blu Homes-related reasons. We may send periodic mailings to visitors or make telephone calls to inform those visitors who have provided a mailing address or telephone number of new products, services or events. If you do not wish to receive such calls or mailings, you may request to be removed from our mail and telephone contact list by contacting Blu Homes at email@example.com or by telephone (+1.866.877.7997). Additionally you may make your request by writing to Blu Homes at 130 Turner Street, Suite 610, Waltham, MA 02453, USA.
We may offer functionality on our website that allows you to tell a friend about our services. If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our services, we will ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend’s email address. We will send your friend an email message inviting him or her to visit or try our services. By providing email addresses or any other contact information of third parties to us, you represent and warrant that you have the right to do so, and you acknowledge and agree and that such information may be used for this purpose. We store this information to send the email invitation, to credit for referrals, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove his or her email address from our database.
Disclosing Personal Information to Outside Parties
Additionally, information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer, successor or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, or other transaction in which personal information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets.
