What information does Blue Fringes (“the Vendor”) collect and how is it collected?
1. Personally-Identifiable Information:
The Vendor typically receives specific data about its website visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information, purchase or enroll for services, provide resume information for employment opportunities, or send us e-mail. Of course, some of these activities require that you give us information, such as when you make a purchase, pay for services, submit your resume, or request certain types of information. When you provide personally-identifiable information to the Vendor through one of our websites or to one of our representatives when purchasing our products and services, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. In most cases, you will be given the opportunity to select whether you do, or do not, want the Vendor to use this information for additional purposes. the Vendor reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about your Vendor services. Absent any instructions from you, the Vendor may use information you provide to inform you about additional services and products offered by the Vendor family of companies, the Vendor authorized agents, and other goods and services providers with whom the Vendor has relationships and whose offerings might be of interest to you. the Vendor will not, however, sell or trade your personally-identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so. On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, the Vendor will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, the Vendor assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.
