BluBØX Security, Inc. operates several websites whose mission is to provide physical security to BluBØX customers.
BluBØX is fully committed to protecting the online privacy of its customers and of the people or businesses whose information may be entered into the website databases by BluBØX customers.
Information that is not actively collected by BluBØX is referred to as "Hosted Information".
The BluBØX Security Inc. websites include BluBØX.com, BluSKY.com, BluCARE.com, BluSHOP.com and any other website that BluBØX may operate in the future, and are collectively referred to as “The BluBØX websites”.
The principal purpose of these websites is to provide security services such as giving physical access to occupants of a facility or to their visitors into the facility’s secure perimeter, supporting certain administrative tasks such as the management of a CCTV system or access control database, or providing tools for communication between BluBØX and its clients. Given this mission, the websites must store certain personal information about the people who occupy the facility, or people who are invited into the facility (such as visitors, contractors or vendors).
BluBØX.com - People can browse this marketing website without identifying themselves and without providing any personal information. But BluBØX does monitors traffic to the site, and its web servers collect such information as domain name, browser type, date and time of access, and pages viewed. BluBØX uses this information to identify the pages that are most useful to the users, track where it can improve its website to enhance user experience, and to prepare future content in accordance with user interests.
BluSKY.com, BluCARE.com, BluSHOP.com – Access to these websites require unique personalized credentials. Personal information must be obtained and stored in the databases for users to obtain such credentials. Furthermore, personal information will also have to be stored in the websites’ databases about people who are being invited into a facility’s secure perimeter or who shall be rendering needed services within the facility.
When a person needs to be admitted past the secure perimeter of a protected facility, or is selected to render certain services to people or organizations within that facility’s secure perimeter, then personalized unique credentials must be provided.
When credentials are issued to a prospective user, a Person Record containing some of that person’s personal information must be created and stored in a BluBØX database. Generally, the personal information is entered by a BluB0X website Administrator, but in some instances, the personal information maybe transcribed from records belonging to the prospective user’s employer or from records belonging to one of the employer’s customers or vendors.
This information is mainly used to identify the person, empower him/her to operate the websites pursuant to the permissions that have been assigned, and provide him/her access past the secure perimeter.
Log information – If the person uses BLUBØX services, its servers automatically record information that the person’s browser sends whenever the person visits a BluBØX website. These server logs may include information such as the person’s web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of the person’s request which may uniquely identify the person’s browser.
Personal Information - is mainly used to identify the user, empower him/her to operate the websites pursuant to the permissions that have been assigned in the user’s Person Record, provide him/her with the websites’ information and services, respond to the user’s inquiries, provide him/her with access into the secure perimeter, and / or maintain a mutual relationship between users.
Accessing and Updating Personal Information
When a person becomes a user of BLUBØX services, BluBØX will generally provide that person with access to his/her personal information so inaccurate data can be corrected, or deleted if it is not otherwise required to be retained for legitimate business purposes or by law.
BluBØX asks users to identify themselves and the information they wish to access or have corrected or removed before processing such requests, and BluBØX may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup media), or for which access is not otherwise required.
In any case where BluBØX provides information access and correction, BluBØX performs this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort. People should contact BluBØX directly if they have questions or concerns about their personal information. People who are invited to become users receive an e-mail invitation to log into the BluBØX site(s) immediately after their Person Record has been created. This invitation specifies the site’s URL and indicates that their user name is their e-mail address. By selecting “Forgot my Password” on the log-in screen, new users can specify a unique password that is only known to them.
Thereafter, persons with log-in credentials are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their user name and password. Users are responsible for all uses of their password, whether or not authorized by them. In the event of any unauthorized use or their user name or password, users must immediately: 1) inform BluBØX, and 2) proceed to modify their password
Transmission of Personal Information
It is BLUBØX’s policy to not transmit, store or exchange any consumer-related information including but not limited to Social Security numbers, Driver’s License numbers, State- issued Identification Card numbers, financial account numbers, debit or credit card numbers.
Users must agree to not use the BluBØX websites to transmit, store or exchange any consumer-related information including but not limited to Social Security numbers, Driver’s License numbers, State-issued Identification Card numbers, financial account numbers, Debit or Credit Card numbers. Furthermore, users must warrant that they have all the required permissions and licenses that authorize them to use, store and transmit the personal data that they enter (the Hosted Data) - or that is entered on a user’s behalf - into any of the BluBØX website databases, and that these permissions and licenses authorize BLUBØX to do the same.
The transmission of data over the Internet by its nature entails the use of systems that are under the control of third parties. BLUBØX will work to prevent any violation of the security provisions of such systems during the transmission of BluBØX stored data, but BluBØX cannot exercise control over such systems, or the security of the data that is being transmitted by such systems.

Provide ways for users to access their personal data as required by law - so they can correct inaccuracies - except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the information in question or where the rights of other people would be violated.
Regularly review how BluBØX complies with meeting these privacy promises, and commit to providing an independent method for the resolution of any complaints relating to its privacy practices.
BLUBØX only processes personal information for the purposes described in the specific services notices or policy statements. Such purposes include:

- Auditing, researching and analyzing in order to maintain, protect and improve BluBØX services;

Choices for Personal Information
When a user signs-up for a particular service that requires registration, personal information about this user shall have to be entered into the BluBØX website databases.
BluBØX will not collect or use sensitive information for purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, unless it has obtained each user’s prior consent.

Some of BluBØX’s services may have different procedures to access, correct or delete users' personal information. Users should contact BluBØX directly if they have questions or concerns about their personal information.
Information Security and Secure Transactions
BluBØX has implemented various security measures for the purpose of protecting its users’ personal information against accidental loss, destruction, alteration, unauthorized disclosure, and any other unlawful form of processing.
These measures include periodic internal reviews of BluBØX’s data collection, storage and processing practices, and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where personal data is stored.
When a user profile is created to assist with logging-into a secure portion of a BluBØX website, the user’s personal information benefits from the protections of Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) technology. BluBØX’s web servers have been enabled with SSL technology to automatically encrypt its users’ information and help prevent unauthorized parties from viewing users’ personal or financial information during a secure session. This is one reason why users must enter a unique user name and password each time they access their account information online or place a purchase order through a BluBØX website.
In addition, BLUBØX restricts access to personal information to BLUBØX employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
BluBØX provides its customers with functionality that allows them to also restrict access to the personal data that they may have entered into the databases themselves (the Hosted Data), but BluBØX cannot be held responsible for the particular procedures that are implemented by its customers for the protection of the Hosted Data.
It is BLUBØX’s policy to not transmit, store or exchange any consumer -related information including but not limited to Social Security numbers, Driver’s License numbers, State-issued Identification Card numbers, financial account numbers, and Debit or Credit Card numbers.
