This is BL's governing and protecting your use of and contributions to our website and/or our related services (collectively known as the "Services," or, each individually, a "Service"). BL will comply with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, as well as applicable U.S. law, when we gather and use information from users of the Services.

We may serve advertisements to you based on the information we collect from you or in relation to your interaction with the Services.

Except as explained below and in the Terms of Use, we will keep confidential and not share any information you provide to us in connection with the Services.

The following categories of information are collected in connection with your use of the Services:

    Information you provide : When using the Services, you may provide information about yourself, such as name, address, phone number, email and details around a potential transaction. This may include, for example, when you register as a user or list a property on BL’s Services. You may also provide information about a third party through the Services, for example, if you share a real estate listing with a recipient via email or on a BL ProjectBoard. We may combine this information with other information we collect from your interaction with the Services or from other companies.

    In addition, when you order products or services through the Services, BL may collect your credit/debit card information. This information is secured using industry-standard encryption technology. BL will use this information solely to complete your order and will not share this information with outside parties, except to the extent necessary to complete the order or comply with applicable law.

    Cookies and Web beacons : Cookies are bits of electronic information that can be transferred to your computer or other electronic device to uniquely identify your browser. When you use the Services, we may place one or more cookies on your computer or other electronic device. BL may use cookies to connect your activity on the Services with other information we store about you in your account profile or your prior interactions on the Services. At any time, you may adjust settings on your browser to refuse cookies according to the instructions related to your browser. However, if you choose to disable cookies, some of the free features and Services on BL will not operate properly. Also, the pages on the Services may include Web beacons or pixels, which are electronic files to count users who have visited that page, to track activity over time and across different Web sites, to identify certain cookies on the computer or other electronic device accessing that page, or to collect other related information, and this information may be associated with your unique browser, device identifier, or Internet Protocol address. We may, for example, implement a pixel on the pages of the Services where you view a certain advertisement so that we can track whether you visit a Web site associated with that advertisement at a later time.

    Mobile Device and Mobile Browser : You may adjust settings on your mobile device and mobile browser regarding cookies and sharing of certain information, such as your mobile device model or the language your mobile device uses, by adjusting the privacy and security settings on your mobile device. Please refer to the instructions provided by your mobile service provider or mobile device manufacturer.

    Usage logs : When you use the Services, your computer or other electronic device communicates a variety of information to computer servers, including the existence of cookies, your Internet Protocol address, and information about your browser program. We also create a record of what information you are requesting, such as the page or subject areas you're visiting.

    Calls : Calls to BL or to third parties through BL may be recorded or monitored for quality assurance and customer service purposes. If a call is recorded between you and a third party, it will be deemed private information of both you and the third party, and may be released to either of you.

    Personal Information : We are committed to protecting information that identifies you personally, where you have chosen to keep it private ("Personal Information"). We will only share Personal Information that you provide outside the public areas of the Services in the following circumstances:

    • When you consent or direct BL to share the Personal Information.
    • When BL hires a service provider to help operate the Services or our business, BL may give access to Personal Information only as necessary to perform the service for BL, and subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
    • BL may give business partners access to Personal Information only as necessary to offer products and services with those business partners, and subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy
    • When BL has a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the Personal Information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any requirement of law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce or investigate a potential violation of the Terms of Use,(c) detect, prevent, or otherwise respond to fraud, security or technical concerns, (d) support auditing and compliance functions,or (e) protect the rights, property, or safety of BL, its users, or the public against harm.
    • If and when BL is involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of transfer or sale of some or all of its business, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding. Personal Information may be transferred along with the business.

    When you provide public information without identifying yourself, we will protect your personal identity as described above. If your account profile does not identify you personally, BL won't reveal your identity to third parties except in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You should keep in mind that the information that you choose to provide in a public area of the Services (such as your public listings, user profile or the Project Boards) will not be protected by this Privacy Policy because you have made an active choice to make that information public. We are not responsible for any Personal Information you choose to submit in any public area of the Services.

    When we deliver ads based on data about your use of the Services, we keep your identity anonymous. We won't identify you personally to third parties, except in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If, however, you choose to respond to an advertised offer with your name and contact information, you will no longer be anonymous to the advertiser. Further, while we do not share your Personal Information with third parties unless permitted above, BL may share aggregate anonymous information with third-parties. This information does not personally identify individuals, but instead provides a helpful understanding of the groups of people who prefer certain types of information and services.

    Real Estate Information : Much information regarding real estate is already publicly available. We intend to keep this information as well as information about real estate uploaded to the Services by users freely available subject to the Terms of Use and Listing Agreement, with limited exceptions in the case of private listings that are spelled out in the Terms of use and Listing Agreement.

    Email Management : You may receive email from BL for a variety of reasons-for example, if you took an action through the Services, you signed up for a regular report, or you listed your property and a buyer or vendor sent you a message.

    External Websites : Clicking on some links on the Services may connect you to websites that are not owned or controlled by BL. Such external websites are subject to their own privacy policies and are not covered by our Privacy Policy.

    BL marketing service providers : If you do not want BL and its marketing service providers to follow your usage of our Services via cookies and Web beacons, you can opt out of Cookies/Web beacons from: Google Analytics. Opting out of these services does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the service from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your Web preferences and usage patterns. Please note that, if you opt out and later delete your cookies, use a different browser, or use a different computer or other electronic device, you will need to renew your opt-out choices.

    Children under the Age of 13 : BL will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from any person under the age of 13. The Services are not designed to attract the attention of persons under the age of 13.
