Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you BLINQ.com. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host BLINQ.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 BLINQ.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.
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).
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.
