Your privacy is very important to us. At Blue Wave Wellbeing, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of our site.
It is Blue Wave Wellbeing’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites. How we collect, store, use and secure personal data aligns with Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Like most website operators, Blue Wave Wellbeing collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Blue Wave Wellbeing’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Blue Wave Wellbeing’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Blue Wave Wellbeing may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Blue Wave Wellbeing also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Blue Wave Wellbeing only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Website visitors to Blue Wave Wellbeing website must not reuse any of Blue Wave Wellbeing images without prior consent from Blue Wave Wellbeing. If permission is granted, full image credit, with a backlink created to the Blue Wave Wellbeing website, must be in place and valid at all times.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Blue Wave Wellbeing’s website choose to interact with Blue Wave Wellbeing in ways that require Blue Wave Wellbeing to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Blue Wave Wellbeing gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Blue Wave Wellbeing updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Blue Wave Wellbeing collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Blue Wave Wellbeing. Blue Wave Wellbeing does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Blue Wave Wellbeing may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. For instance, Blue Wave Wellbeing may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Blue Wave Wellbeing may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Blue Wave Wellbeing does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Blue Wave Wellbeing discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Blue Wave Wellbeing’s behalf or to provide services available at Blue Wave Wellbeing’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Blue Wave Wellbeing’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Blue Wave Wellbeing will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Blue Wave Wellbeing discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental requests, or when Blue Wave Wellbeing believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Blue Wave Wellbeing, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Blue Wave Wellbeing’s website and have supplied your email address, Blue Wave Wellbeing may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date with what’s going on with Blue Wave Wellbeing and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example, via a support email or one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Blue Wave Wellbeing takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally-identifying information.
You may opt out of these additional communications at any time. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
