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.
