Privacy Policy

Information Collected or Received

BLOOMBEES will not disclose User’s name, email address or other personal information to third parties without the User’s explicit consent, except as specified in this policy.

Each BLOOMBEES User is required to provide a valid email address at registration and choose a username or alias that may represent the User’s identity on BLOOMBEES.

Depending on which services the User chooses to use, BLOOMBEES may require additional information, such as a Seller name, billing and payment information (including billing address, telephone number, credit card information), a telephone number, and/or a physical postal address. As a Seller owner, BLOOMBEES may require information such as a social security number, identification ID or tax ID, date of birth, bank account information, credit card information and/or other proof of identification in order to verify the Seller’s identity and provide this service to the Seller. Credit card information on an account may be stored and used for both billing and payment purposes. BLOOMBEES may contact an individual Seller to confidentially request more information about the Seller or items listed on the Site, to ensure compliance with our rules. Certain products or services on BLOOMBEES may require you to complete an application; any information you submit through the application processes will not be displayed publicly and will only be used internally by BLOOMBEES, unless otherwise specified.

Each User’s username, BLOOMBEES ID or alias is publicly displayed and connected to the User’s BLOOMBEES activity. Other people may see a User’s date joined, reviews, ratings, profile information, items listed for sale, Seller pages, sold item listings, and comments in community spaces.

BLOOMBEES automatically receives and records some information from the User’s browser or mobile device when the User visits the Site or use the Apps, such as the IP address or unique device identifier, cookies, and data about which pages the User visits on the Site or on the Apps. This information helps us analyse and understand how the Site works for members and visitors, and provides a more personalised experience for members and visitors.

When you use the Site, each User may optionally choose to share geo-location details with BLOOMBEES in order to use our location-based services. If the User has provided location details but would no longer like to share that information, the User may opt out of those services through the settings on the Site. The User may also enable the Site to access the mobile device’s camera to upload photographs to BLOOMBEES.

Some User’s or visitors may connect to or register a BLOOMBEES account using an external third-party application, such as Facebook, Google+, and Instagram, or an app developed using the BLOOMBEES API. BLOOMBEES may receive some data from those connected third-party applications. The User may connect the account to an external app, and in such cases the User will be given the opportunity to grant permission. The User can revoke this permission under the BLOOMBEES account settings.

BLOOMBEES may receive or collect information (for example: an email address) about a person who is not yet a registered BLOOMBEES User (a “non-member”) in connection with certain BLOOMBEES features, including but not limited to: a non-member subscribing to an BLOOMBEES newsletter, a member inviting a non-member to visit the Site, a non-member engaging in a transaction, or a User sending a link to a non-member. Non-member information is used only for the purpose it was originally submitted to BLOOMBEES. A non-member can contact Bloombees Support Center if they do not want BLOOMBEES to retain their information.

BLOOMBEES uses the information described in this policy to provide and improve our services and products, for billing and payments, for identification and authentication, for targeted online marketing, to contact members or interested parties, and for general research and aggregate reporting.

BLOOMBEES’ Terms of Use require all account owners to be at least 18 years of age (or have the permission and supervision of a responsible parent or legal guardian), therefore, this policy does not discuss use of our Site, our Apps, or services by minors.

Choice & Control

BLOOMBEES knows our Users value having control over their own information, and therefore BLOOMBEES gives each User the choice of providing, editing or removing certain information, as well as choice over how we contact the User.

The User may change or correct your BLOOMBEES account information (except your unique ID, email address, the Seller’s Sellers currency) on the Site.

For various reasons, BLOOMBEES may contact the User about our services or the User’s activity. Some of these messages are required, service-related messages for Users. Learn more in the Messages from BLOOMBEES section of this policy.

If the User has optionally connected the account to an external, third-party application, such as Facebook, or an app developed using the BLOOMBEES API, the User can remove permission for the app by changing the href=“url”>account settings.

If a User no longer wish to use BLOOMBEES’ Services or receive service-related messages, then the User may close an account.


User’s may only search and find products or Sellers via unique ID. User’s can follow a Seller’s public activity, such as products and other information. Anyone using BLOOMBEES can ‘share’ a Seller’s checkout page via their social networks and other means. No Buyer information is shared on BLOOMBEES.

Messages from BLOOMBEES

On occasion, BLOOMBEES will contact Users. Primarily, messages are delivered by email or by push notifications, and every account is required to keep a valid email address on file to receive messages. In some situations, BLOOMBEES may contact the User by telephone, SMS message or physical mail in order to provide the User with customer support or to provide the User with information about products and features the User may find of interest. The User may update any contact preferences in the account settings.

Some messages from BLOOMBEES are service-related and required for Users. Examples of service-related messages include, but are not limited to: a welcome/confirmation email when a User registers an account, notification of an order, or correspondence with BLOOMBEES’ support team. These messages are not promotional in nature. The User may not opt-out of receiving service-related messages from BLOOMBEES, unless the User closes the account.

BLOOMBEES may offer optional email newsletters. When the User registers for an account, or chooses to subscribe, the User will receive newsletters from us. Newsletters are available to both User’s and non-members. User’s may subscribe or unsubscribe from optional newsletters under the account settings or by following the instructions contained in the newsletter emails. Non-members may subscribe by providing an email address, which will only be used by BLOOMBEES for these newsletters. Non-members may unsubscribe from newsletters by following the instructions contained in the newsletter emails.


BLOOMBEES is a platform connecting Buyer and Sellers, which form a community. Please use common sense and good judgment when posting or sharing personal information with others on BLOOMBEES. Be aware that any personal information submitted can be read, collected, or used by others, or could be used to send a User unsolicited messages. BLOOMBEES is not required to remove content from community spaces, and any User posts may remain public even after the account is closed. The User is responsible for the personal information the User chooses to post in community spaces on BLOOMBEES.

Information Sharing & Disclosure

BLOOMBEES wants to respect User privacy. BLOOMBEES will not disclose the name, email address or other personal information of any User to third parties without explicit consent, except as specified in this policy.

BLOOMBEES limits access to personal information to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to any User or in order to do their jobs.

You are contracting with BLOOMBEES S.L. BLOOMBEES S.L. may share any of the data it gathers with any other subsidiary, parent, or affiliate company of BLOOMBEES S.L. for any purpose, including but not limited to: ID verification, transaction reviews and payment processing details.

As part of the buying and selling process, BLOOMBEES will facilitate the sharing of information between the two Users involved in the transaction. As part of the buying or selling process, a User may obtain another BLOOMBEES User's email address, shipping address, payment information, and/or other information. As described in BLOOMBEES' Terms of use, the User shall have a limited license to use this information only for BLOOMBEES-related communications or for BLOOMBEES-facilitated transactions.

BLOOMBEES has not granted any User a license to use the information for unsolicited commercial messages or unauthorized transactions. Without express consent from that User, User’s must not add any BLOOMBEES User to any email or physical mailing list or store or misuse any payment information.

BLOOMBEES may release a User’s personal information to a third-party in order to protect, establish, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; comply with a subpoena, court order, legal process, or other legal requirement; or when BLOOMBEES believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, threats to property, or violations of BLOOMBEES' Terms of use. BLOOMBEES may disclose personally identifiable information to parties in compliance with our Trademarks, Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy , as BLOOMBEES in its sole discretion believes necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity. In such events, BLOOMBEES may disclose a name, address, country, phone number, email address and company name.

BLOOMBEES is affiliated with a variety of businesses and works closely with them. These businesses may offer promotions or sell items or services to any User through BLOOMBEES’ services. BLOOMBEES may also provide services or sell products jointly with affiliated businesses. Due to the nature of the BLOOMBEES business model, when an affiliated business is associated with a certain transaction, we may share information that is related to such transaction with that affiliated business. BLOOMBEES may share aggregated demographic information with business partners.

In some cases, BLOOMBEES may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions (such as a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership or transfer of all or substantially all of BLOOMBEES’ assets), User information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. In the event that BLOOMBEES transfers information about a User, BLOOMBEES will notify the User by email or by putting a prominent notice on the Site and the App, and the User will be afforded an opportunity to opt-out before information about the User becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Third-party plug-ins also may collect information about the use of the Site. For example, when a User loads a page on BLOOMBEES that has a social plug-in from a third-party site or service, such as a Like or Send button, the User is also loading content from that third-party site. That site may request cookies directly from the browser. These interactions are subject to the privacy policy of the third-party site. In addition, certain cookies and other tracking mechanisms on our site are used by third parties for targeted online marketing and other purposes. These technologies allow a partner to recognise a computer or mobile device each time the User visits BLOOMBEES, but do not allow access to personally identifiable information from BLOOMBEES. BLOOMBEES does not have access or control over these third-party technologies, and they are not covered by our privacy policy. For more information, see our Cookies and Tracking page. If the User prefers to prevent third parties from setting and accessing cookies on the User’s computer, the User may set the browser used for accessing BLOOMBEES Services to block cookies. And the User may opt out of the use of cookies by Google Analytics. Additionally, the User may elect to be removed from the interest-based advertising of companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance program by opting out hereif located in the European Union and here if located in the USA.

This policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that BLOOMBEES does not own or control, or individuals that BLOOMBEES does not employ or manage. If the User provides information to others on BLOOMBEES or throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to the use or disclosure of the information the User provides to them. BLOOMBEES does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and the User is subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. BLOOMBEES is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of other websites on the Internet, even those linked to or from the BLOOMBEES Site or Apps. We encourage the User to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.


The security of personal information is important to us. A User’s BLOOMBEES account information is protected by a password. It is important that the User protect against unauthorized access of the account and information by choosing a password carefully, and keeping the password and computer secure by signing out after using BLOOMBEES Services.

BLOOMBEES encrypts sensitive information (such as credit card number) using secure socket layer technology (SSL). BLOOMBEES follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once BLOOMBEES receives it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Data Retention

BLOOMBEES will retain User information only for as long as is necessary or the account is active or as needed to provide the User Services. If a User no longer want BLOOMBEES to use information to provide Services, you may close the account. BLOOMBEES will retain and use information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

The User may inform us of any changes or requests in regards to the User’s personal data, and in accordance with BLOOMBEES obligations under local data protection law, BLOOMBEES may update or delete personal data accordingly.

Privacy Policy Changes

BLOOMBEES reserves the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it periodically. BLOOMBEES will communicate significant changes by posting a notice on the Site or the Apps. If we make material changes to this policy, prior to the change becoming effective, the User will be notified by email, in the Site, or other places BLOOMBEES deems appropriate.
