Territoriality

Regardless of where our servers are located, your personal data may be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. BY VISITING THE SITE AND USING THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY US THROUGH VOLUNTARY SUBMISSIONS, AND, TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, THAT U.S. LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.

This Privacy Policy may be subject to the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation ("EU GDPR"), the UK General Data Protection Regulation (“UK-GDPR”, and together with the EU GDPR, the “GDPR”), and other applicable privacy laws. Under the GDPR, BTL is a data “Controller. If you are an individual located in the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, the European Economic Area, or Switzerland (collectively, and for the purposes of this Privacy Policy, the “EEA”), you are a “Data Subject” with certain protected privacy rights concerning your “Personal Data.” We will take commercially reasonable steps to maintain compliance with GDPR. Your Personal Data may identify you as a person, and thus may be referred to in this Privacy Policy as Personally Identifiable Information ("PII").

1. Who Collects Your Information On Our Service?

We do. Under the GDPR, BTL is what is known as a “Controller” of the Personal Data that you provide us with. We collect information from you on the Service, and we are responsible for protection of your information.

2. What Information Does BTL Collect?

A. Personal Information. We collect certain personal information about you, which may be supplied when you register for the Service, when you create or update an account, when you use the Service, when you request services, when you link your account with us to your social media account(s) via our optional integration, otherwise when you submit such information, and from third. The types of personal information we collect and save include:

  • Name, physical or mailing address, phone number, email address, age, gender, and username;
  • Location-based information; and
  • Technical information collected in our logs, such information may include standard web log entries that contain your IP address, browser history, first-party cookies (session and persistent), third-party cookies, notifications of when you have read an email that we sent you, web beacons, page URL, and timestamp.

You may provide us with information when you interact with us through email, submit a review or a post, or through other use of the Service. We may retain such information in order to provide you with services, and you agree that we may share this information as needed with other users in order to resolve any issues that may arise between you and another user of the Service.

The Service may be integrated with third party social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram (“Platforms”). If you choose to interact with the Platforms through the Service, the Platforms may make additional Personal Information about you available to us.

The Service may send you push notifications, collect your location information, and request permission to access your photo gallery, camera roll or other device storage area holding your images, audio, and videos in order for you to upload and transmit them to or through the Service.

The Service may also access the internet or use your mobile data plan in order to use certain features of the Service.

Although it may appear that we collect financial information, it is actually collected and processed through our third-party payment processor (“Payment Processor”). Our Payment Processor may collect information such as banking information or credit card number, name, CVV code or date of expiration, from you through use of the Service. BTL cannot access and does not hold your financial information.

B. Non-personal Information. Non-personal information is non-personally identifiable or anonymous information about you, including but not limited to browser information, the pages accessed most frequently, how pages and features are used, time spent on a page, when and how you use the App, applications downloaded, search terms entered, and similar non-personal data.

Automatically tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of automatically collecting information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your device whenever you surf the internet. Further, the Service may utilize web beacons, pixel tags, third-party cookies, embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools.

If non-personal information is paired to any of your PII, we will treat the non-personal information as if it were also PII.

Part of the purpose of the Service is to share materials you make available. Anything you publicly post will not be considered personal information.

C. Aggregate Information. We may also collect anonymous, non-identifying and aggregate information, the date and time of any request you make, your language preference, pages you visit, the referring website, the website you go to immediately after visiting our Site, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

3. Why Is My Information Being Collected?

We accept and gather information in an effort to provide the Service to you. We need to collect your personal information so that we can respond to your requests for information or to be added to our email lists, to integrate with Platforms at your options, enforce our Terms of Service, and otherwise provide the Service. We also collect aggregate information to help us better design the Service. We collect log information for monitoring purposes to help us to diagnose problems with our servers, administer the Service, calculate usage levels, and otherwise provide services to you.

4. How Do We Use the Information We Collect?

A. We use the personal information you provide for the purposes for which you have submitted it, including:

  • Internal Uses. We may use your PII to respond to your inquiries, to fulfill your requests for information, track usage trends, conduct usage experiments, develop and improve the Service and other offerings, and perform research and analytics, including, but not limited to analyzing web activity associated with your user profile.

We may use any anonymous, aggregate information, which may include or be based on your information, without restriction.

5. Do We Share Your Personal Information?

We will not share your personal information except: (a) for the purposes for which you provided it; (b) with your consent; (c) as may be required by law or as we think necessary to protect our organization or others from injury (e.g., in response to a court order or subpoena, in response to a law enforcement agency request, or when we believe that someone is causing, or is about to cause, injury to or interference with the rights or property of another); (d) with our corporate clients that are using our CRM Services; or (e) with persons or organizations with whom we contract to carry out internal operations or business activities.

6. Are There Other Ways My Personal Data Could Be Shared?

You may elect to share certain personal information with individuals or with the public via your use of the Service. In this case, you will control such sharing via settings that we provide. For example, the Service may make it possible for you to publicly share information via Platforms such as Facebook, or Instagram. Be aware that when you choose to share information with friends, or with the public at large, you may be disclosing sensitive information, or information from which sensitive information can be inferred.

For instructions on how you can further access your personal information that we have collected, or how to correct errors in such information, please send an e-mail to legal@breakthelove.com. We will also promptly stop using your information and remove it from our servers and database at any time upon your e-mail request to do so.

You may opt-out of: our use of your information other than for the primary purpose for which you provided it; promotional emails (including via the unsubscribe link in any such promotional email from us); and from being included in an online directory, by emailing us at legal@breakthelove.com.

8. How Do We Store and Protect Your Information?

A. After receiving your personal information, we will store it on our servers for future use. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect including, but not limited to, strong encryption, firewall protection, and industry best practice authentication. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or data storage solution can ever be completely secure. As a result, although we take industry-standard steps to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or receive from us or that we store on our or our service providers' systems.

B. If you are using the Service from outside of the USA, you understand that your connection will be through and to servers located in the USA, and the information you provide will be securely stored in our servers and internal systems located within the USA.

9. How Do We Use Cookies And Other Network Technologies?

A. To enhance your online experience with us, our web pages may presently or in the future use "cookies." Cookies are text files that our web server may place on your computer or mobile device to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other PII unless you choose to provide this information to us. Once you choose to provide PII, however, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device or browser, certain features of the Services may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

B. Our Service uses Google Analytics, provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 (“Google”).

C. BTL or its service providers may also use "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" or similar means (collectively, "Pixel Tags") in connection with some of our Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages for purposes of, among other things, compiling aggregate statistics about website usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1x1), that is ordinarily not visible to website visitors and may be associated with cookies on visitors’ computers or mobile devices. Pixel Tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have visited certain pages of our Site, to deliver customized services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can inform the sender of the email whether and when the email has been opened.

D. As you use the internet, you leave a trail of electronic information at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as "clickstream data”, can be collected and stored by a website's server. Clickstream data can reveal the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to our Site. We may use clickstream data as a form of non-personally identifiable information to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Site, how visitors navigate through the Site, and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. We will only use this information to improve our Site, App and Services.

E. Do Not Track. At present, the Site does not specifically respond to browser do-not-track signals.

10. Collection of Information by Others.

11. ‘EEA’ Privacy Rights.

If you currently reside in the EEA, the GDPR applies to your PII and you are a Data Subject. The GDPR requires that we, in our capacity as a Controller, have a legal basis to process your PII.

A. We process your PII under one or more of the following legal bases:

  • Processing is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests;

  • To comply with a legal obligation; and/or
  • If we have your consent to do so, such consent capable of being revoked at any time.

12. Children and Young People’s Information.

Our Service is designed to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), and associated Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) rules for collecting personal information of/from minors. Under COPPA, BTL is an “operator” and as such subject to certain obligations under COPPA with regard to Personal Information pertaining to children under the age of 13. We endeavor to not collect, use, or disclose the Personal Information of a child under the age of 13 without the verified consent of their parent.

Upon signing up for an Account, we will verify the parent or guardian’s consent by collecting their full credit card information and billing them for the requested monetary transactions. If however, no transaction is requested, we may still collect the parent’s credit card information for the purposes of obtaining verified consent, and will verify consent by charging the card a nominal non-refundable fee.

Once verified parental consent is received, and we have collected, used and disclosed the Personal Information of your child as described above in this Privacy Policy, we shall employ the same measures to protect its confidentiality as we do any other PII. Our Service will not knowingly accept Personal Information from anyone under 13 years old in violation of applicable laws, without verifiable consent of a parent. In the event that we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided PII to us, we will make efforts to delete the child’s information in accordance with the COPPA.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, we shall not retain the Personal Information of any child under the age of 13 longer than is reasonably necessary to fulfill the Service requested, to allow the child to participate in the Service, to ensure the security of our users and our Services, or as otherwise required by applicable law.

A parent may review, edit, object to additional processing, or request the deletion of their child’s Personal Information by emailing us at legal@breakthelove.com. To protect the child’s privacy and security, we shall take reasonable steps to verify the identity of the parent before giving them access to such PII. We shall also delete a child’s personal information in the event that we find it is collected, used, or disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent of COPPA’s requirements, or immediately seek the parent’s consent for the same. If you believe that your child under 13 has gained access to our Service without your permission, please contact us at legal@breakthelove.com.

Please see the FTC's website (www.ftc.gov) for more information on COPPA.

13. California Privacy Rights

California law allows California residents to request information regarding our disclosures to third parties in the prior calendar year, if any, of their personally identifiable information. To make such a request, please contact us at legal@breakthelove.com with "Request for Privacy Information" in the subject line. Please include enough detail for us to locate your file; at a minimum, your name, email, and username, if any. We will attempt to provide you with the requested information within thirty (30) days of receipt. We reserve our right not to respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year, or requests submitted to an address other than the one posted in this notice.
