Bluecore, Inc. Privacy Policy

Bluecore’s published Privacy Policy includes four (4) distinct privacy contexts including privacy guidance for:

Overview: Definitions, Scope and Applicable Regulatory Information

About this policy

This privacy policy (“Policy”) describes how Bluecore, Inc. (hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Company,” “Bluecore,” “we,” “us” or “our”) collect, use and share Personal Information of consumers, users of this website (the “Site”) and other Bluecore websites, Bluecore’s corporate clients and Bluecore employee, contractors and employment applicants. Bluecore reserves the right to change the provisions of this Policy at any time. We will alert you that changes have been made by indicating on the Policy the date it was last updated. We encourage you to review this Policy whenever you visit our Site to make sure that you understand how any Personal Information you provide will be used.

What is Personal Information?

As used herein, the term “Personal Information” means information that directly or indirectly helps identify an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, or other account number), and information about that individual’s activities, such as information about his or her use of Bluecore sites, products or services, when directly linked to personally identifiable information. Personal Information also includes demographic information such as date of birth, gender, geographic area and preferences when such information is linked to other Personal Information that identifies you. Personal Information encompasses personal data as defined within the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR” or “EU GDPR”).

Personal Information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of the Site or about a group or category of products, services or users, from which individual identities, identifiable information or other Personal Information has been irreversibly removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected, de-identified and then combined with information about how others use the same service. Aggregate data helps Bluecore understand trends and users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our offerings. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.

Compliance Frameworks

Standard Contractual Clauses

Transfers of Personal Information from the EEA and UK to Bluecore are undertaken on the basis of applicable Standard Contractual Clauses, as per Bluecore’s Data Processing Agreements. Due to the nature of the personal information that is provided to Bluecore together with all data transfers to the US being TLS encrypted, Bluecore believes the risk of government surveillance to the privacy of customer data to be very low. Additionally, Bluecore will only provide personal information to applicable law enforcement authorities when under strict legal compulsion.

The information Bluecore collects will be stored and processed in servers in the United States. 

Security of Personal Information

Bluecore aims to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by taking reasonable steps given the context of the engagement in which data is provided to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, interference, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

This process ensures that the collection, use, storage, transmission or deletion of Personal Information is conducted in accordance with the GDPR, including data minimization, limited retention or appropriate data security. From the earliest stage of conception and development, risks are identified and documented and sound security measures are identified and encoded in the software as part of the service. The resulting security posture ensures adequate security is present within the entire product life cycle.

Context 3: Corporate clients utilizing Bluecore’s products and services

Bluecore is committed to helping its brands successfully comply with privacy and data protection legislation, such as the EU GDPR and EU countries’ implementation of the ePrivacy Directive.  For end-user data, Bluecore’s corporate clients act as Data Controllers under the GDPR, whereas Bluecore acts as a Data Processor.  The core element of this distinction extends from the direct consumer relationship that Bluecore’s clients have with their customers.  Bluecore, via contractual agreement with its clients, acts under direct instruction to process customer data on behalf of its clients.  For this reason, Bluecore clients must give their end-users in the EU a mechanism to freely and affirmatively consent, to the enabling of non-essential cookies, tags and web beacons, such as behavioral tracking, before these components become active on their websites. Implied consent and opt-out permission models are not permitted within the EU.

Bluecore’s clients must maintain a valid inventory of consent from the users of their websites and communicate any changes in the state of individual user consent to downstream Data Processors, including Bluecore, Inc.  The consent must be clearly inclusive of all downstream Data Processors and clearly state the legal basis for collection and transfer of Personal Information.

End-users can exercise their data protection rights with any organization processing their Personal Information.  If an individual contacts Bluecore clients with requests requiring the export, deletion or correction of an end-user’s data or consent this notice should be communicated to  Likewise, should end-users contact Bluecore directly with data related requests, these communications will be passed to applicable Bluecore clients (and any applicable sub-processors) via their advertised privacy activity intake mechanism.

Bluecore has granted access via username and password for access to certain parts of its Site or services.  Each user is responsible for keeping access credentials confidential. It is required that users of the Bluecore services not share access credentials with anyone, including members of their own organization.  Each user of the system must have a unique set of credentials. To protect the security of partner data or consumer data, Bluecore may suspend use of a Site or service, without notice, pending an investigation, if any breach of security is suspected. Access to and use of password-protected and/or secure area of the Site or services is restricted to authorized users only. Unauthorized access to such areas is prohibited and may lead to criminal prosecution.

Bluecore may collect and process Client, Vendor or Business Partner Data when you conduct business with Bluecore on behalf of a Client or prospective client, or as, or on behalf of, a vendor, supplier, consultant, professional adviser or other third party.
