INFORMATION COLLECTION

Creating a BLEACHR Account

To create a BLEACHR account on a BLEACHR application or application powered by BLEACHR and log into that account, you login using Facebook login or other such methods as BLEACR may make available from time to time, such as by filling out a form to provide various pieces of personally-identifiable information (“PII”).  PII is information that may identify you personally versus non-personally-identifiable information (“NPII”) that has either been scrubbed of information that identifies you personally (e.g. deidentified) or collected in a way so as to not intentionally identify the user.  Subject to change at BLEACHR’s discretion, BLEACHR collects information about you from Facebook upon your login using Facebook such as your full name, e-mail address, age, gender, geolocation, profile photo, and Facebook URL.  Additional information may be collected from you through any app or web form provided by BLEACHR for you to sign up for the services or through Facebook login where Facebook and your privacy settings through that platform allow for additional information to be collected.  To avoid fraud, harassment, spam, bullying, and other bad behavior using the BLEACHR services, you are not authorized to create an account using information that is intended to obfuscate your identity and not allow others using the BLEACHR account to identify your true identity.    

Communications with BLEACHR

We may also collect additional PII and NPII through any email, telephone, or other contact you have with BLEACHR regarding its services.

Creating a Post and Providing Information Using BLEACHR

When you create a post using the BLEACHR mobile application or an application powered by BLEACHR, you can choose to create text, audio, video, and photos using the mobile device’s hardware and software or select such content already stored on your mobile device.  The BLEACHR mobile application or applications powered by BLEACHR will then use the content you have created or otherwise selected along with software on your mobile device to create a post that will be uploaded to BLEACHR.  That post along with the original text, photo, video and audio and your account information, may be uploaded to BLEACHR’s servers along with other data relating to your usage of the BLEACHR mobile application or an application powered by BLEACHR and stored by BLEACHR.  Similarly, any comments, communications, or other interactions with the mobile app or its users will be uploaded to BLEACHR’s servers.  Information relating to an original post, communications through BLEACHR, and other interactions with a BLEACHR powered mobile app may be correlated and stored with your user information.

Similarly, you may elect to provide additional PII or NPII in various ways by interacting with the mobile app.  For example, you may provide BLEACHR with more information about yourself through filling out additional information in your profile or by posting information about yourself within the app.  You may also provide information about others using the mobile app, such as by you providing BLEACHR access to your friends’ information through Facebook, your contacts on your mobile device, or by posting information about others while using the mobile application.  In the same ways, other users of a BLEACHR powered mobile app may provide BLEACHR with information about you. 

We may collect information about the people and groups you are connected to and how you interact with them using the mobile app, such as the people you communicate with the most or the groups you like to share with.

General Use of BLEACHR Mobile Application

BLEACHR may generate and store an audit trail of each user’s use of the mobile application including without limitation the taking of photos, recording of audio or video, sharing or recommending of a BLEACHR powered mobile app or posts within the mobile app with others, and creating and sending posts.  BLEACHR may track statistics about your usage of a BLEACHR powered mobile app, such as when and where you created a user account, logged into the mobile app, used the mobile app, the activities you engaged in while using the mobile app, and advertisements you viewed while using the mobile app. 

We may collect information from or about the devices where you install or access our mobile app. We may associate your information across multiple devices based on your usage and the information collected from those different devices. For example, and without limitation, we may collect information about your device(s) manufacturer, operating system, hardware, system settings and statistics, device identifiers, mobile service provider or ISP, and mobile number.

Location Information

The BLEACHR mobile app relies on geolocation to identify your location and connect you with other users attending an event.  If you do not allow BLEACHR to collect and use geolocation information, your use of the BLEACHR mobile app will be limited if not unavailable.  If allowed by you, we collect geolocation information such as GPS coordinates and we may use and store such information, although presently we are not permanently storing GPS data in relation to your PII.   

Links

We may keep track of how you interact with links across our services, including our email notifications.

Website

BLEACHR may gather and collect NPII, including, but not limited to, any of the following when you use our website: (1) IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) to track a user's session while the user remains anonymous, (2) computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform, (3) the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, though, and from the website, including date and time, (4) cookie number, (5) information you viewed or searched for, and (6) your mobile carrier and device type.

Web Beacons

BLEACHR may employ Web beacons (also called single-pixel gifs), which are customized links or similar technologies, when sending you messages, newsletters, or promotional emails. Web beacons allow BLEACHR to (a) determine whether you have opened, or acted upon, a promotional email and which links you have clicked on in order to deliver to you more focused communications and other content, (b) allow BLEACHR to count the number of users who have visited certain Web pages and effectively deliver co-branded services, and (c) enable BLEACHR to compile aggregated statistics and determine the efficacy of promotions by using Web beacons from third parties, without allowing such third parties to use Web beacons to collect or access your PII.

Third-Party Service Providers

BLEACHR may use a variety of third-party services to help provide our services, such as hosting our website and mobile application services, and to help us understand the use of our services, such as through Google Analytics or TUNE. Our mobile application or an application powered by BLEACHR is also designed to run on one or more mobile application platforms such as those provided by Apple and Google.  We may also collect or otherwise gather information related to you from these third-party service providers.  These third-party service providers may collect, store, and share information as further dictated by the Privacy Policies of those third parties. An application powered by BLEACHR may tie into and use the Advertising ID in the Apple, Google Android, or other mobile platforms and more information regarding Advertising IDs and how to limit tracking relating to Advertising IDs can be found by reviewing the privacy policies and user guides provided by those platforms.

We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as information included in a post when you choose to make a post, and also when you decide to share a post outside of a BLEACHR powered mobile application, such as without limitation one or more social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.  When you share such information with other social media platforms, those platforms may gather data about you subject to their Privacy Policies and you should review those policies before sharing information using their services.  Please remember that posts, comments, and other interactions you have with the mobile app are, unless otherwise restricted, public and may be shared internal to the mobile application or externally through sharing functions.  Mobile devices themselves also have the capability to capture and record information, such as through screen captures, and information that you may have intended to share on a limited basis can become public.  You should always use your best judgment when providing and sharing information using the mobile app.
