Unfortunately, the transmission of any information via the internet is not completely secure. We will do our best to protect your Information through the use of appropriate technical measures such as encryption but we cannot guarantee the security of Information transmitted; any transmission is at your own risk.

Once we have received your Information, we use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. All Information we hold is stored on our secure servers. At rest data is encrypted using AES256 bit encryption, although some Account Holders may manage their own encryption keys with our agreement.
When you share information or communicate using the App you choose the audience who can see what you share. Those people may download or re-share any of your content with anyone on the App or otherwise. We have no control over this so do not share any personal data or information that you do not want to be seen, collected or used by other End-users.
End-users have the right to ask us not to process their personal data, as defined by the Data Protection Act 1998, for direct marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your personal data) if we intend to use it for direct marketing. This might involve something like sending you emails about new products that we might offer. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at email@example.com
We will also send you messages and email that are of a service or administrative nature but you may not opt out of these.

Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these Non-Blink Services.
