Blok24 Privacy Policy

 

1. Introduction

This Privacy Policy is designed to inform you about the information Blok24 ("Blok24", "we", or "our") collects at www.ontheblok.com, any successor sites thereto, and any interactive features (such as applications and widgets) that provide an authorized link to this Privacy Policy (collectively and individually the "Blok24 Service"). This Privacy Policy applies whether the Blok24 Service is accessed via personal computers, mobile devices, tablets, or otherwise.

This Privacy Policy explains why we collect information about you and how we use information we learn about you when you visit the Blok24 Service. This Privacy Policy will also provide you with instructions on what to do if you don't want to share your personal information with Blok24 when you visit the Blok24 Service. Your use of the Blok24 Service signifies you have read our Privacy Policy and assented to it. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, your sole option is to immediately discontinue use of the Blok24 Service.

We reserve the right, at our complete discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will not, however, retroactively change how we share your personal information without your consent. Please check back periodically for any changes we may make to the Privacy Policy, as your continued use of the Blok24 Service following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy means you accept these changes.

2. Personal Information We Collect and Use

We ask you for the personal information we need to provide the service you've requested or agreed to receive, enable you to participate in Blok24 Service features, tailor the content you see when you visit the Blok24 Service, process your registration, respond to your questions or other requests, improve and manage the Blok24 Service, contact you with regard to your use of the Blok24 Service and for purposes disclosed at the time you provide your personal information or as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy or with your consent.

Cookies

Cookies are used on the Blok24 Service. A "cookie" is a small file that we save on your computer's hard drive that contains non-personal information. Our cookies help to give you faster access to pages you have already visited, allow you to personalize your pages, and help you to participate in activities or events on the Blok24 Service. They also assist us in customizing our offerings to you. Cookies do not contain any personal information about a specific user, other than their IP address. We do not use cookies to collect information specifically about you for sharing with third parties.

Web Beacons

Web beacons are small graphic images or other programming code (also known as "1×1 GIFS" or "clear GIFs"). We may include web beacons in the Blok24 Service pages and email messages. Web beacons may be used for a number of purposes, including to count visitors to the Blok24 Service, to monitor how users navigate the Blok24 Service, and to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened.

Information You Share With Us

When you interact with the Blok24 Service, if applicable, you may set up your personal profile, form friendships, send messages, perform searches and queries, add content, and transmit information through various channels. We may retain this information so that, for instance, you can return to view prior information you have sent or easily see what your friends are posting. Any information you share in public areas, such as message boards, status updates, or feedback sections become public, and therefore this Privacy Policy does not apply to such information. Please be careful about what you disclose and do not share in public areas any personal information that you expect to keep private.

Tell-A-Friend Services

If we adopt (and you choose to use) an invitation service to tell a friend about the Blok24 Service or features thereon, we will ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend's email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email or message inviting him or her to visit the Blok24 Service. Blok24 stores this information only as long as needed to send this one-time invitation and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at support at ontheblok.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

3. Sharing of Information

We may share non-personally identifiable information, such as aggregated user statistics, with third parties. We do not share your personal information with third parties for third-party marketing purposes. We may share the information we have collected about you, including personal information, as disclosed at the time you provide your information and in the following circumstances:

Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf

We may use third parties to perform certain services on behalf of the Blok24 Service, such as hosting the Blok24 Service, designing and/or operating the Blok24 Service features, and enabling Blok24 to send you email newsletters or performing other administrative services. We may provide these companies with access to user information, including personal information, to carry out the services they are performing for you or for us. While we may use: (a) third-party analytics service providers to evaluate and provide information about the use of the Blok24 Service and viewing of our content and (b) ad-serving platforms, we do not share personal information with either of these types of entities. However, analytic service providers and ad-serving platforms may set and access their own cookies and web beacons on your device and they may otherwise collect or have access to limited information about you, including usage information.

Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions

We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (each, a "Promotion") through the Blok24 Service that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you agree to the terms, conditions and/or official rules that govern that Promotion. If you choose to enter a Promotion, personal information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion's official rules, such as on a winners' list.

Administrative and Legal Reasons

We may also disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us; and (b) protect and defend our rights or property, the Blok24 Service, its users, or the public.

Business Transfer

We reserve the right to disclose and transfer all information related to the Blok24 Service, including, without limitation, your personal information, demographic information and usage information: (i) to a subsequent owner, co-owner or operator of the Blok24 Service or applicable database; or (ii) in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of our stock and/or assets or other corporate change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process.

4. Children

Except where otherwise indicated, we do not knowingly collect or store any personal information from children under the age of 13. Some of our online services may attract an audience that is under the age of 13. For those services, we use an age-gate to make certain features unavailable for use by children under 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 in connection with those features. Where required, we will provide notice to and obtain verifiable consent from parents or guardians for the collection of personal information from children under 13, and provide parents or guardians the ability to request access to personal information we have collected from their children. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time with their children online and to be fully familiar with the online or digital services used by their children. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child under 13 has provided us with information without his or her consent, he or she should contact us at support@blok24.co. As required by law, we will delete such information from our files within a reasonable time.

You may only be able to use the Blok24 Service and any related e-commerce services if you are 18 years of age or older, or the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence, whichever is older. If you are under the age of 18 or the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence, you may only use Blok24 Service and any related e-commerce services with the involvement of a parent or legal guardian.

California minors under 18 years old may request the removal of any information that they posted to the Blok24 Service by contacting support@blok24.co. Upon such request, Blok24 will anonymize, or remove from public view, any content posted by a minor to one of its websites, unless required by law to retain such content or information.

5. Important Information for California Residents

Residents of the State of California may request a list of all third parties to which the online portion of the Blok24 Service has disclosed certain personal information (as defined by California law) during the preceding year for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and want such a list, please contact us at support@blok24.co. For all requests, you must put the statement “Your California Privacy Rights” in the body of your request, as well as your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. In the body of your request, please provide enough information for us to determine if this applies to you. You need to attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. Please note that we will not accept requests via the telephone, email, or by facsimile, and we are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or that do not have complete information.

Do Not Track

California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014) provides that California residents are entitled to know how Blok24 responds to “Do Not Track” browser settings. Blok24 does not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.

6. Security

Personal information collected via the Blok24 Service is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. In some instances, personal information is encrypted during storage and transmission. Only those Blok24 employees and agents who need access to your Personal Information to do their jobs are allowed access, each having signed confidentiality agreements. While we make reasonable efforts to safeguard your Personal Information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or information we transmit to you from the Blok24 Service, and you assume all related risks.

7. Cross-Border Transfer

The Blok24 Service is intended solely for US visitors. You agree that any personal information you provide to us will be processed and stored on servers in the US, the laws of which may be deemed by other countries to have inadequate data protection. Accordingly, if you are located outside the US, you consent and continue to consent to the processing and storage of such data in the US and you warrant that such processing and storage will not violate any country's data-security and data-transfer laws including the European Union Safe Harbor Director and local implementations thereof.
