How we gather information from users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site. Like most Web sites, BloomingBulb.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.
Use of Facebook Pixels and Retargeting
We use the Facebook Pixel service provided by Facebook Inc. on our website. This tool allows us to follow the actions of users after they are redirected to a provider's website by clicking on a Facebook advertisement. This enables us to measure the efficacy of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e., we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which is why we are informing you, based on our knowledge of the situation.
Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and also use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with Facebook's Data Usage Policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can allow Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes.
To opt-out of Facebook's interest-based ads, follow these instructions from Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/help/568137493302217. Facebook is a participant in the Privacy Shield Framework, which offers additional safeguards to protect your data (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
The Facebook Pixel also allows BloomingBulb.com to serve retargeted ads to users who have previously visited our website. These ads may appear on Facebook or other websites that you visit. If you wish to opt out of this retargeting feature, you can adjust your settings on Facebook to control what ads you see. However, please note that opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It simply means that the advertising you see will not be tailored to your interests.
Please note that using the Facebook Pixel is in line with our goal to show ads that are of interest to our users, to improve the user experience on our site, and to make our marketing efforts more efficient.
What we do with the information we collect
Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by BloomingBulb.com may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements BloomingBulb.com expects its partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. Be aware, however, that third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a BloomingBulb.com page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through BloomingBulb.com you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. BloomingBulb.com is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of BloomingBulb.com and this policy.
We use encryption technologies when transferring and receiving data from you through our website. We also have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you. Because data transmissions over the internet are never 100% secure, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or from our website and therefore you use our website at your own risk.
We do not knowingly collect or attempt to solicit personal information from children under the age of 18. If we learn that we have personal information on a child under the age of 18, we will delete that information from our systems.
Remove Your Name from our List If you no longer wish to receive marketing email communications from us regarding our website, special product offers or services, and/or newsletters, you may choose to stop receiving emails at any time.
