BULQ Privacy Notice
PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE ACCESSING OR USING THE WWW.BULQ.COM WEBSITE OR RELATED SERVICES
The Information We Collect
When you visit BULQ.com, or telephone, email or FAX orders to Optoro, you provide us with two types of information: (i) personal information that you knowingly choose to disclose to us and (ii) information that is collected by us as you use BULQ.com. In addition, when you become a registered user by creating an account on BULQ.com, you provide us with certain personal information (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, etc.).
When you use BULQ.com, we collect information relating to your browser type and Internet Protocol (IP) address. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using cookies. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that Users (as defined in BULQ.com's Terms of Service at https://www.bulq.com/terms-of-service/) are logged in, which terminate once the user closes the browser. In addition, we use a cookie to store your cart contents for 48 hours. By default, we also use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to log in when you use BULQ.com. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature. We may also collect pages viewed, resources accessed, general traffic data, location data, and other communication data.
By using BULQ.com, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States. Please do not use the website or services unless you fully understand and consent to any and all privacy implications resulting from data transmission and data storage in the United States.
Children Under the Age of 13
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to become registered users or create accounts. If you are under the age of 13, please do not attempt to become a registered user or send any information about yourself to us (including your name, address, telephone number, or email address). In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a person under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a person under the age of 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use of Information Obtained by Us
We use information collected from you to provide our services to you. In addition, we may use the information for one or more of the following purposes:
- We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new Services offered by us that we think you may find valuable. You may “opt-out” of these email notifications.
- We may send you Service-related notifications from time to time through the general operation of BULQ.com.
- We may use the credit card information provided by you to pay for the services and products we provide to you.
- We may share information in your profile with third parties. We do this for purposes such as (without limitation) aggregating general traffic trends, and personalizing advertisements and promotions. We believe that this benefits you while also protecting your privacy.
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances (i) where we believe such sharing is reasonably necessary to offer BULQ.com (including as described in this Privacy Notice), (ii) where we believe such sharing is legally required, or (iii) where you have permitted such sharing. For example:
We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you BULQ.com. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host BULQ.com at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about our services, to remove redundant information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). Our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these offerings and business activities. Where we utilize third parties for processing personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to our specified purposes.
We may disclose user information (i) pursuant to lawful requests (such as subpoenas or court orders), (ii) in compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, (iii) to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through BULQ.com or using our names and/or trademarks, (iv) to prevent imminent bodily harm, or (v) when we believe it is necessary to protect our interests or property. This disclosure may include sharing user information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business, or one or more of our individual business units changes, user information may be transferred or otherwise made available to the new owner so the Service can continue operations. In such event, user information would remain subject to this Privacy Notice.
BULQ.com may contain links to other websites and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those websites. We encourage our users to review the privacy practices of each and every website that they use. This Privacy Notice applies solely to information collected by us.
Third Party Advertising
We take precautions to protect our users' information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as your credit card number or your password), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Your information travels to us via Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS).
Because email and instant messaging services are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services.
If you have any questions about the security of BULQ.com, please contact us at email@example.com.
