Your privacy is very important to us. At Blue Spring Water we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Blue Spring Water operates several websites including bluespringh2o.com. It is Blue Spring Water’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Blue Spring Water collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Blue Spring Water’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Blue Spring Water’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Blue Spring Water may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Blue Spring Water also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Blue Spring Water only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Blue Spring Water’s websites choose to interact with Blue Spring Water in ways that require Blue Spring Water to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Blue Spring Water gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Blue Spring Water updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Blue Spring Water collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Blue Spring Water. Blue Spring Water does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Blue Spring Water may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Blue Spring Water may monitor the most popular pages on the bluespringh2o.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Blue Spring Water may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Blue Spring Water does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Blue Spring Water discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Blue Spring Water’s behalf or to provide services available at Blue Spring Water’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Blue Spring Water’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Blue Spring Water will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Blue Spring Water discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Blue Spring Water believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Blue Spring Water, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Blue Spring Water website and have supplied your email address, Blue Spring Water may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Blue Spring Water and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Blue Spring Water takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Blue Spring Water, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Blue Spring Water goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Blue Spring Water may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Disqus anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
