    • Sources of Personal Information. We obtain the categories of personal information listed above on or through our Platform from the following categories of sources:
  • Personal Information You Provide.  BPAG collects personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us.  For example, we may collect or receive personal information from you if you create an account on the Platform; edit registration information; purchase a product; sign up to receive promotional communications; use or access products and services available through the Platform; participate in one of our promotional sweepstakes, contests, or surveys; post a review; submit a request to our customer service team; interact with our social media pages; or otherwise interact with us or other users through the Platform.  BPAG also collects any user generated content posted by you to the Platform.
  • Automatically Collected Personal Information. In addition to personal information that we may receive directly from you, BPAG indirectly collects other information from you automatically through the Platform. For example, we receive personal information from users when a user visits and navigates to our Platform on any device; installs and uses the Application; receives our emails; or enables location-based features on the Application. We, our service providers, and our advertising partners may also collect personal information about you over time and across different websites, apps, and devices.  Third parties also collect personal information this way on our Platform. BPAG collects some personal information automatically using cookies and other online tracking technologies, including software development kits in our Application. See our Cookie Policy for more information.
  • Personal Information Obtained from Third Parties. In addition to the personal information that we collect from you directly and automatically, BPAG may receive personal information about you from other third party sources.  For example, we receive personal information from our business partners, social media sites, third party marketing firms, or companies that provide personal information to supplement what we already know about you.  We may merge or combine such personal information with the personal information we collect from you directly or automatically.  We may also receive information about you if someone refers you to us or wishes to purchase something on our site for you.
  1. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

BPAG’s primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide the products and services that you request on the Platform.  BPAG may also use personal information for various purposes, including without limitation to:

  • To Provide and Operate Our Products and Services. This could include fulfilling your requests for products or services, establishing, and maintaining your account, identifying you as a user on the system, processing purchases or other transactions, facilitating deliveries, and processing your returns.  For example, if you share your personal information to request a price quote or ask a question about our products or services, we will use that personal information to respond to your inquiry. This could also include communicating with you about the Platform, including by sending you announcements, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages, providing customer support and maintenance for the Platform, enabling security features of the Platform, and using your location to identify pick-up locations (in some jurisdictions).

  • To Create Deidentified Information and Aggregate Information.  We may also use your personal information to create Aggregated Information, Deidentified Information, or other anonymous data records from your personal information and other individuals whose personal information we collect. We make personal information into anonymous data by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We may use this anonymous data and share it with third parties for our lawful business purposes, including to analyze and improve the Platform and promote our business.
  • Direct Marketing of Our Products or Services.  We may use our personal information to provide you with information about BPAG products, services, or promotions.
  • Other Advertising. We and our advertising partners may use cookies or other online tracking technologies to provide customized advertisements, content, and information and to monitor and analyze the effectiveness of marketing activities.  These might be third party offers we or our partners think you might find interesting.  These communications may come in the form of interest-based advertising using information gathered across multiple websites, devices, or other platforms.
  • Compliance, Fraud Prevention, and Safety.  We use personal information to maintain the safety, security, and integrity of our Platform, products and services, databases and other technology assets, business, and other Users.  For example, we may use your personal information and disclose it to law enforcement, government authorities, and private parties as we believe necessary or appropriate to protect our, your or others’ rights, privacy, safety or property (including by making and defending legal claims); audit our internal processes for compliance with legal and contractual requirements; enforce the terms and conditions that govern the Platform; and protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized, unethical or illegal activity, including cyber-attacks and identity theft.

  • Partner or Client Offerings. We may jointly offer events, promotions, or any other product or service offerings with third party partners or our clients.  The personal information that you submit through an event, sweepstakes, promotion, or other product or service offering may be combined and transmitted with the registration information related to your account.  Third party partners or clients may collect information directly from you, which may be combined with personal information disclosed by us.  If you decide to request, enter into, or participate in an event, sweepstakes, promotion, or other product or service offering that is offered by us and identified as a joint effort with a third-party partner or client, the information that you provide may be shared with us and with that third party.

Please note, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is fully secure.  While we use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information from the risks presented by unauthorized access or acquisition, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.

  1. RESIDENTS OF CALIFORNIA

The following section applies only to residents of California. It describes how we collect, use, and share personal information of California residents when we act as a “business” as defined under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), and their rights with respect to their personal information.  For purposes of this section, “personal information” has the meaning given in the CCPA but does not include information exempted from the scope of the CCPA.  In some cases we may provide a different privacy notice to certain categories of California residents, in which case that notice will apply instead of this section.

  • Notice to California Residents. We describe:
  • the categories of personal information we may have collected about you in the preceding 12 months and the sources from which we collect this information in the section above called “COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION”;
  • the business and commercial purposes for which we collect this information in the section above called “USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION”; and
  • the categories of third parties to whom we disclose this information in the section above called “SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION”.

BPAG must also disclose whether the following categories of personal information are disclosed for a “business purpose” or “valuable consideration” as those terms are defined under California law.  The CCPA also calls this latter category a “sale” of personal information.  Note that while a category below may be marked, that does not necessarily mean that we have personal information in that category about you.  In the preceding twelve months, we have disclosed the following categories of Personal Information in the manner described:

Category Information is Disclosed for a Business Purpose Information is Disclosed for Valuable Consideration
A. Individual Identifiers and Demographic Information Yes Yes
B. Sensitive Personal Information Yes No
C. Geolocation Data Yes No
D. Commercial Information Yes Yes
E. Internet or Network Activity Yes Yes
F. Inferences Drawn from Personal Information Yes Yes

 

  • Your California Privacy Rights. The CCPA provides California residents with the rights listed below.
  • Access. You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months, including:
    • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
    • The categories of sources of the personal information we collected about you.
    • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
    • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
    • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
  • Deletion. You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.
  • Opt-Out of Sales. If we “sell” your personal information as described above, you can opt out.
  • Nondiscrimination. You are entitled to exercise the rights described above free from discrimination in the form of legally prohibited increases in the price or decreases in the quality of our products and services.

Please note, these rights are not absolute and in some cases we may not be able to respond to your request, such as when a legal exemption applies or if we are not able to verify your identity.

  • How to Exercise Your California Privacy Rights. Access and Deletion Rights.  To exercise the access and deletion rights described above, please submit a request to us and provide the information we request that is required to verify your request by:
  • Right to Opt-Out of the “Sale” of Personal Information. Under California law, some of the data we share with our affiliate advertising partners may qualify as a “sale” as defined under the CCPA. To exercise your right to opt-out of such “sale”, please:

When exercising your rights or otherwise assisting you, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity.  This is a security measure to ensure we do not disclose personal information to any person who is not entitled to receive it.  We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. You may also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf.  In order to designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, you must provide the requester’s proof of identification, the authorized agent’s proof of identification, and any other information that we may request in order to verify your request.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights).  However, we may charge a reasonable fee or decline to comply with your request if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within 45 days of your request.  Occasionally it may take us longer than 45 days to respond, for instance if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests.  In this case, we will notify you of the delay, and may continue to update you regarding the progress of our response.

  • Notice of Disclosure for Direct Marketing. Under California Civil Code sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents who have an established business relationship with BPAG and/or BPAG brands are entitled to ask us for a notice describing what categories of personal information we share with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. This notice will identify the categories of information shared with and will include a list of the third parties with which it is shared, along with their names and addresses.  If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit your request to the address listed in the section titled “CONTACTING US” above.

 

  1. NOTICE TO EUROPEAN USERS

The information provided in this “Notice to European Users” section applies only to individuals in the European Union, the European Economic Area, or the United Kingdom (collectively, “Europe”).

  • Personal Information. Except as otherwise specified, references to “personal information” in this Privacy Policy are equivalent to “personal data” governed by European data protection legislation.
  • Controller. The controller of your personal information covered by this Privacy Policy for purposes of European data protection legislation is the BPAG entity named on the part of the Platform that you use or access, or from whom you purchase an item.
  • Lawful basis for processing. BPAG is required to inform you of the lawful basis of our processing of your personal information, which are described in the table below.  If you have questions about the lawful basis of how we process your personal information, contact us at the address listed in the section titled “CONTACTING US” below.
Processing Purpose (for more information, see the corresponding descriptions above in the section titled “USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION”) Lawful Basis
• To Provide and Operate Our Products and Services Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract.  You are subject to a contract with us and we need to use your personal information to provide products and services.
• To Improve Our Products and Services.

• To Create Deidentified Information and Aggregate Information.

• Compliance, Fraud Prevention, and Safety.

 

Processing activities constitute our legitimate interests.  We consider and balance the potential impact on your rights before we process your personal information for our legitimate interests.  We do not use your personal information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent, or we are otherwise required to perform a contract or by law).
• Direct Marketing of Our Products or Services. Processing activities constitute our legitimate interests.  In some jurisdictions, processing may instead be based on your consent. Where we rely on your consent you have the right to withdraw it anytime in the manner indicated on the Platform.
• Other Advertising.

• With Your Consent.

Processing is based on your consent. Where we rely on your consent you have the right to withdraw it anytime in the manner indicated on the Platform.
• As Required by Law. Processing is necessary to comply with our legal obligations.

 

We will use your personal information only for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably determine we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.  For example, we consider deidentification, aggregation, and anonymization of personal information to be compatible with the purposes listed above and in your interest, because the deidentification, aggregation, and anonymization of such information reduces the likelihood of improper disclosure of that information.

 

PLEASE NOTE WE MAY PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE OR CONSENT, IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE ABOVE RULES, WHERE THIS IS REQUIRED OR PERMITTED BY LAW.

 

  • Sensitive Information. Unless we specifically request it, we ask that you not provide us with any sensitive personal information (e.g., information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background or trade union membership) on or through the Platform, or otherwise to us.
  • Retention. BPAG retains your personal information:
  • For so long as your Account is active or as needed to provide you with the Platform or to fulfill our contractual obligations;
  • As necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements; and
  • For so long as is necessary for the purposes for which we collected such personal information.
  • Your Rights. European data protection laws give you certain rights regarding your personal information. You may ask us to take the following actions in relation to your personal information that we hold:
  • Access. Provide you with information about our processing of your personal information and give you access to your personal information.
  • Transfer. Transfer a machine-readable copy of your personal information to you or a third party of your choice.
  • Correct. Update or correct inaccuracies in your personal information.
  • Restrict. Restrict the processing of your personal information.
  • Object. Object to our reliance on our lawful basis as the basis of our processing of your personal information that impacts your rights.
  • Delete. Delete your personal information.

When we receive your request, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may withhold information where we are required by law to do so or if the search for that information would require disproportionate effort or have a disproportionate effect to, for example, the cost of providing the information, the time it would take to retrieve the data, or how difficult it may be to obtain the information requested.

 

If you are a resident of Europe and would like to exercise any of these rights, please submit your request to the address listed in the section titled “CONTACTING US” above.  If you would like to submit a complaint about our use of your personal information or response to your requests regarding your personal information, you may contact us or submit a complaint to the data protection authority in your jurisdiction.  You can find your data protection regulator here.

 

  • Cross-Border Data Transfer. If we transfer your personal information out of Europe to a country outside of Europe such that we are required to apply additional safeguards to your personal information under European data protection laws, we will do so.
