How We Collect Information from You
Information we collect from you depends on how you utilize the Service and what information you choose to provide to us. At the most basic level, we collect your name, phone number, and email address, and any of your Contacts' information (names, phone numbers, and other information entered). We collect information from you when you register for an Account; interact with the features available on the Service; email us or send a message through the Service; report a problem with our Service; and search the Service. We also collect information through automatic data collection technologies, which is described in more detail below.
Types of Information We Collect
Blossom, along with any third-party companies or individuals with whom we work, may collect information directly and voluntarily from you when you use the Service. The information we collect, use, and share includes "Personal Information" and "Non-personal Information."
Personal Information is generally information that can be used to identify you, either by itself or in conjunction with other information, which may be Non-Personal Information. It does not include data that has been anonymized to remove the identity (anonymous data), and it does not include data about a company.
Non-Personal Information includes information that is about you, and your equipment or usage details, but cannot be used to identify you personally.
The categories of Personal and Non-Personal Information we may collect, use, and store are as follows:
Contact Information includes first name, last name, email address, and telephone number.
Account Data includes your username and password for your Account; details about phone number, address, full name, all text message data sent and received; and details related to your interests, preferences, feedback and survey responses. Your Account data may also include information or content that you specifically provide or upload to your Account for use in connection with the Service, which may include photographs, data, text, graphics, comments, notes or other information. All information you provide in connection with your Account is optional and voluntary.
Technical Data includes internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology or devices you use to access this website.
Usage Data includes information about how you use the Service.
Marketing and Communications Data may include your preferences for receiving marketing information from us, newsletters, and any other communication preferences.
BY 'Author' ON '0000-00-00T00:00:00'A NOTE: 'It's very important that this part is accurate too. '] We do not require you to provide any Special Categories of Personal Data in order to use the Service (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). However, we do allow you to create interest groups and communicate with others (such as your Contacts and other non-users) based on such interests ("Interest Groups"), and you or any such party with whom you communicate may choose to provide, communicate, upload or input data that includes Special Category Data. If you upload or input Special Category Data to your Account, or if you create or communicate an Interest Group, you are giving us your explicit consent to process your data, including Special Category Data, in order to facilitate your creation of or participation in the Interest Group or as otherwise requested by you in connection with your Account. Creation of or participation in Interest Group(s) is optional, and we will only process data that you specifically provide and only as necessary for the functionality of the Interest Group feature.
Aggregated Data is combined information, which may include information derived from your Personal Information, but is not considered Personal Information, because it is anonymized and does not directly or indirectly identify you. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data with the Usage Data of other users in de-identified form to calculate usage trends with respect to a feature of the Service. If we use Aggregated Data in combination with your Personal Information, it will be treated as Personal Information.
* ** The preceding descriptions of Personal Information and Non-Personal Information we may collect are illustrative, not exhaustive.
Failure to Provide Personal Information
If you fail to provide personal information when it is required by law or necessary for us to perform our obligations (e.g., to facilitate your ability to use features of the Service as intended), we may not be able to perform our obligations. For example, if you fail to provide us with your billing information to pay for a service or feature we may offer, we may not be able to provide you with the service you requested.
