3. How We Use Your Information

We collect and use personal information in accordance with the practices described in this Privacy Policy, including in the following ways:

  • Providing services. We use information to provide services to you, including to operate the Service, establish and maintain your account, and provide support. 

  • Personalizing your experience. We use information to personalize your experience and show you content we believe you will find interesting. 

  • Communications. We use information to communicate with you about updates, security alerts, changes to policies, and other transactional messages. We also use information to personalize and deliver marketing communications to you. Communications may be by email, and, where you opt-in, text messages. 

  • Analytics. We use information to understand trends, usage, and activities, for example through surveys you respond to and tracking technologies that we incorporate into the Service (such as Amplitude and Google Analytics). We also use information for research and development purposes, including to improve our services and make business and marketing decisions. 

  • Advertising. We work with agencies, ad networks, technology providers, and other third parties to place ads about our products and services on other websites and services. For example, we place ads through Google and Facebook that you may view on their platforms as well as on other websites and services. As part of this process, we incorporate tracking technologies into our own Service as well as into our ads displayed on other websites and services. Some of these tracking technologies may track your activities over time and across non-affiliated services and obtain or infer information about you for purposes of showing you relevant advertising based on your preferences and interests (“targeted advertising”). We also use audience matching services (which is a type of targeted advertising) to reach people (or people similar to people) who have visited our Service or are identified in one or more of our databases (“matched ads”). This is done by us providing a list of hashed email addresses to a third party or incorporating a pixel from a third party into our own Service, and the third party matching common factors between our data and their data. For instance, we incorporate the Facebook pixel on our Service and may disclose your hashed email address to Facebook as part of our use of Facebook Custom Audiences. 

  • Promotions. When you voluntarily enter a promotion, we use information as set out in the official rules that govern the promotion as well as for administrative purposes and as required by law. By entering a promotion, you agree to the official rules that govern that promotion, and that, except where prohibited by applicable law, we, the sponsor, and related entities may use your name, voice and/or likeness in advertising or marketing materials.

  • Security and enforcement. We use information to prevent, detect, investigate, and address fraud, breach of policies or terms, or threats or harm. 

  • Recruitment. We use information to make decisions about recruiting and in anticipation of a contract of employment. 

  • At your direction or with your consent. We use information for additional purposes where you direct us to use it in a certain way or with notice to you and your consent. 

Sometimes we aggregate or de-identify information so it is no longer considered personal information. We may use non-personal information for any purpose to the extent permitted by applicable law. For details on your choices around use of your information, see the “Your Privacy Choices” section below.

4. How We Disclose Your Information

Blesspro.nl may disclose your information in the following ways:

  • Service providers. Many of the third parties we work with are service providers that collect and process information on our behalf. Service providers perform services for us such as order fulfillment and warehousing, payment processing, data analytics, marketing and advertising, website hosting, and technical support. To the extent required by law, we contractually prohibit our service providers from processing information they collect on our behalf for purposes other than performing services for us, although we may permit them to use non-personal information for any purpose to the extent permitted by applicable law.

  • Third party vendors and related parties. Some of the third parties we work with to perform services act as our service providers in some contexts, but in other contexts independently control the purposes and means of processing your information. For example, we disclose information to ad networks, technology providers, and other third parties that help provide targeted advertising, but may also use information for their own purposes. For these third parties, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with and consult their policies and terms of use. 

  • Business partners. We disclose information to our business partners in connection with offering co-branded services, selling or distributing our products, or engaging in joint marketing or promotional activities. 

  • Affiliates. We disclose information to our affiliates and related entities, including where they act as our service providers subject to this Privacy Policy or use the information in accordance with their own privacy policies.

  • The public. We disclose information you make public, such as information in your profile or that you post on public boards. Please think carefully before making information public as you are solely responsible for any information you make public. Once you have posted information, you may not be able to edit or delete such information, subject to any rights you have under applicable law.

  • Recipients in a merger or acquisition. We disclose information in connection with, or during negotiations of, any proposed or actual merger, purchase, sale or any other type of acquisition or business combination of all or any portion of our assets, or transfer of all or a portion of our business to another business. 

  • Recipients for security and enforcement. We disclose information to comply with the law or other legal process, and where required, in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We also disclose information to protect the rights, property, life, health, security and safety of us, the Service or anyone else. 

  • Recipients at your direction or with your consent. We disclose information where you direct us to or with notice to you and your consent. 

Sometimes we aggregate or de-identify information so it is no longer considered personal information. We may disclose non-personal information for any purpose to the extent permitted by applicable law. For details on your choices around disclosure of your information, see the “Your Privacy Choices” section below.

5. Third Parties

We may link to or offer parts of our Service through websites and services controlled by third parties. In addition, we may integrate technologies, including those disclosed in the “How we Collect Information” section above, controlled by third parties. Except where third parties act as our service providers, they, and not us, control the purposes and means of processing any information they collect from you, and you should contact them directly to address any concerns you have about their processing. Third party data practices are subject to their own policies and disclosures, including what information they collect, your choices, and whether they store information in the U.S. or elsewhere. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with and consult their privacy policies and terms of use.

We are not responsible for the effectiveness of any third party opt-out tools.
