What information do we collect and how do we use it?
We may collect personally identifiable information (for example, your full name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, or credit card number) from you when you voluntarily submit the information to us when you purchase items from us. We need this information in order to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status, in order to register you as a user of this site or to provide you with services. We may also collect personally identifiable information from you if you choose to subscribe to our email program, catalog mailing list, or participate in sweepstakes, contests, and surveys, or in connection with content or suggestions you post on this site.
We also collect non-personally identifiable information (for example, interests, lifestyle choices, opinions) from you when you choose to provide or post non-personally identifiable information on this web site, or via participation in our email program, sweepstakes, contests, surveys or content or suggestions you post on this site.
When Blu Dot conducts contests, sweepstakes, promotions and surveys, or joins with other companies to do so, if you choose to participate you may be asked to provide Personal Information. Blu Dot and the other participating companies may use this information for such purposes as notifying winners and fulfilling promotional obligations, and may also cross reference customer databases to identify common customers. Information from these activities may be used to explore future promotional opportunities or fulfill contractual obligations. Even if you have chosen not to receive communications from Blu Dot prior to your participation in a contest, sweepstakes, promotion or survey, you may still receive information from Blu Dot in connection with such activity if you register for or participate in it. You may choose not to participate in contests, sweepstakes, promotions or surveys if you do not wish to receive information from Blu Dot or share your information with Blu Dot and the other companies sponsoring such activities.
We may share your information if required to comply with a law, regulation, court order or legal process, or if we believe it is necessary to share such information with a government entity. We may share information to protect our rights or property or if the rights of any third party are jeopardized.
Choices for Opt-in and Opt-out
Our Ownership of Information
Our copy of all your information is an asset of ours and belongs to us. In the event of a sale, merger, corporate reorganization or similar transaction involving some or all of our business, we may share with or transfer your information to the buyer or successor entity. We may also retain a copy of that information.
We take every precaution to protect our customers' information. When customers submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks customers to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just "surfing."
If you have any questions about the security at our website, please contact us using the information below in the Contact Information section.
What about privacy on other sites?
Our Web Site may contain links to other web sites. We provide these links for your convenience, but we do not review, control or monitor the privacy practices of web sites operated by others. We are not responsible for the performance of these sites or for your business dealings with them. Your use of other web sites is subject to the terms and conditions of those web sites, including the privacy policies of those web sites.
If you are visiting our Web site through a link from another web site or search engine, information about your visit to us may be collected by the provider of the other web site or search engine. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of these other web sites or search engines.
The Web Sites are general audience web sites. We do not knowingly collect any Personally Identifiable Information from children younger than the age of thirteen (13) on the Web Sites and we will delete any Personally Identifiable Information later determined to be from a user younger than thirteen (13).
