Privacy Policy & Terms of Use.

Privacy Policy

Last updated: September 14, 2016

Blinks is the custodian of data on behalf of the teams that use Blinks. We don’t own your communication data.
At Blinks we believe that more transparency is better than less. We try to make our product easy to use, with settings and options that are easy to find and understand. This is good for privacy, good for the product, and good for Blinks customers and users. To foster greater transparency, we have published a Transparency Report, which is our summary of government and law enforcement requests for user data and content removal from Blinks, and our User Data Request Policy explaining our policy requests regarding user data and content removal requests.
We think that having stickers to be easily accessible and searchable wherever you go, whatever device you have, is better than having less. So this is how we built Blinks.

Blinks Privacy Policy

This privacy policy is here to help you understand what information we collect at Blinks, how we use it, and what choices you have. When we talk about Blinks in this policy, we are talking about Blinks, Inc., the company, Blinks, the downloadable application, and the Blinks website at www.blinksstickers.com. Blinks is available for use via applications specific to your mobile device.

This policy describes how Blinks treats your information, not how other organizations treat your information.

Information we collect and receive
We collect different kinds of information. Some is non-identifying or aggregated. Here are the types of information we collect or receive:
Log data. When you use Blinks, our servers automatically record information, including information that your mobile app sends when you’re using it.
Device information. In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using Blinks on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings.

Blinks usage information. This is information about stickers you use.
We do not receive or store your passwords for any of these services.

Cookies are small text files sent by us to your computer and from your computer to us, each time you visit our website. They are unique to your Blinks account. Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire.

Blinks sets and accesses our own cookies on our company-owned domains. In addition, we use 3rd parties like Google Analytics for app analytics. You may opt-out of third party cookies from Google Analytics.

How we use your information
We use your information for the following:

Providing the Blinks service. We use information you provide to authenticate you and deliver message content to you and from you
Understanding and improving our products. To make the product better we have to understand how users are using it. We have a fair bit of data about usage and we intend to use it many different ways to improve our products, including research. This policy is not intended to place any limits on what we do with usage data that is aggregated or de-identified so it is no longer tied to a Blinks user.
Investigating and preventing bad stuff from happening. We work hard to keep Blinks secure and to prevent abuse and fraud.
Communicating with you
Solving your problems and responding to your requests. If you contact us with a problem or question, we will use your information to respond to that request and address your problems or concerns.

To learn more about current practices and policies regarding security and confidentiality, please see our Security Practices; we keep that document updated as these practices evolve over time.
