Privacy Policy

Welcome to blink.is, a website and service owned and operated by blink.is, Inc.
We would like to thank you for using our website. By using our website, you are
acknowledging that you have read and understood this Privacy Policy.
Blink.is respects the privacy rights of our online visitors and recognizes the importance
of protecting the information collected from you. We have adopted the following
Privacy Policy that guides how we collect, store, and use the information you provide
online. Please note that this policy applies only to sites maintained by blink.is and its
subsidiaries, and not to web sites maintained by other companies or organizations to
which the blink.is website links.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, or if you wish to review
or change your stored personal information, you can contact blink.is at the email or postal
address specified on the blink.is contact page.
Information That We May Collect
Our primary goals in collecting personally identifiable information are to provide you
with and facilitate the provision of the product and services made available through
blink.is, to communicate with you, and to manage your registered user account.
If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of our web site, you will be
required to become a registered user, and to submit certain personally identifiable
information to blink.is. This happens in a number of instances, such as when you sign
up for our services or if you desire to receive marketing materials and information.
Personally identifiable information that we may collect in such instances may include
your IP address, full user name, password, email address, physical address, time zone,
telephone number, and other information that you decide to provide us with, or that you
decide to include in your public profile.
When you visit blink.is, the blink.is server automatically records information that your
browser sends, such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you
are visiting, the websites you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements on
which you click. We use this data to monitor the use of this website and of the services
we provide, and for the website’s technical administration. Your IP address is not
associated with personally identifiable information to identify you personally, except in
case of violation of the Terms of Service or as otherwise required by law.
We use cookies and other technologies to passively collect demographic information,
personalize your experience on our site and monitor advertisements and other activities.
Cookies are small files downloaded to your computer to track movements within web
sites. We may link cookie information to personal information. For example, cookies
link to information regarding what items you have selected for purchase at our store or
pages you have viewed. This information is used to keep track of your shopping cart
and make sure you don’t see the same ad repeatedly. Also, we use cookies to deliver
content specific to your interest and to monitor website usage. We may use an outside
ad company to display ads, and these ads may contain cookies. Blink.is does not have
access to cookies that may be gathered by outside ad companies. Most browsers are
automatically set to accept cookies whenever you visit a website. You can disable
cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent. However some
areas of blink.is will not function properly if you do so. Please note that this privacy
policy covers the use of cookies by blink.is only and does not cover the use of cookies by
any advertisers or by any other website, person, or entity.
Other technologies used include clear GIFs and IP address logging. Clear GIFs are small
graphic images placed on a web page, web-based document, or in an e-mail message.
Clear GIFs are invisible to the user because they are typically very small (only 1-by-
1 pixel) and the same color as the background of the web page, document or e-mail
message. We do not use clear GIFs to collect personal information about you. However,
we may use clear GIF’s to capture statistical usage information for our web pages,
features, or other elements on a web page. We may correlate this information to a user
to personalize user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on our web
pages.
How Your Information May Be Used
We may use your personal information to market to you and provide you with and
facilitate the provision of our products and services. If you decide at any time that you no
longer wish to receive marketing communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe
instructions provided in any of the communications.
We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services
to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, online payments and
billing, customer relationship, database storage and management, and direct marketing
campaigns. We will share your personally identifiable information with these third
parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions.
We will, in our sole discretion, cooperate with requests for information from government
and law enforcement officials or made through private legal process. We may disclose
any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or in response
to private legal process as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to
respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas), to protect the property and rights
of blink.is or a third party, the safety of the public, or any person, to prevent or stop any
illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity, or to comply with the law.
If blink.is is involved in a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or
bankruptcy, blink.is may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets,
including your personally identifiable information.
