Steelblox (“Steelblox”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) is an online sales, information and communications platform (“Service”) for consumers. Steelblox operates the Service on the www.Steelblox.com and related subdomains, on the Steelblox mobile application(s), and on and/or Steelblox’s partner websites.
The Service is hosted in the United States and is not directed towards individuals under the age of thirteen (13). Steelblox does not knowingly collect PII from individuals under thirteen (13) years of age. Collection of Information
If you browse through our websites or through our partner website pages on which the Service appears or use our mobile application(s) without providing us any PII, we may gather and store information about your visit, such as your IP address, type of browser and operating system used, date and time you accessed the website or application(s), pages you visit, how you used the application(s), and if you linked to these websites from another website, or the address of that website. This information will not identify you, and is therefore considered “Non-PII.”
Use and Sharing of Information
The PII we receive from you through your use of the Service may be used or shared by us with third parties, including marketing businesses, lead generation businesses, email service providers, our partners who make the Service available on their web pages, and our corporate affiliates (collectively, “Affiliates”). These third parties are authorized to use the PII we may share only to the extent necessary to provide their respective services.
In addition, there may be instances when Steelblox may access or disclose PII or Non-PII, including under the following circumstances to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights or property of Steelblox and/or its Affiliates; (ii) protect the safety, security, and privacy of users of the Services or members of the public including acting in urgent circumstances; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) comply with applicable law or legal process. In addition, if Steelblox sells all or part of its business or sells or transfers all or a material part of its assets, or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, we may transfer your PII or Non-PII to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
Cookies and Beacons
From time to time, we may place cookies and web beacons on your computer to collect anonymous data related to your use of the Service. This anonymous data provides us with website usage analytics and allows us to provide personalized advertising. We may also use these cookies and web beacons to provide personalized advertising on other websites you visit after using our Service. “Cookies” are small identifiers sent from a web server that are stored on your computer’s hard drive for the purpose of identifying your browser during interaction on websites. Cookies are also used to identify your mobile application(s) and interaction with that application. Cookies may be used to store items such as identifiers and user preferences. A website may set a cookie to the web browser if the web browser’s preferences allow it. A web browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has set, and not those set by other websites. “Web beacons” are invisible electronic images, called a single-pixel (1×1) or clear GIF, that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed.
Analytics Service Providers
We may allow certain third-party analytics service providers to include web beacons within the pages of this website and within the pages of our partner websites on which the Service is available. We may also share portions of our log file data, including IP addresses, with these service providers for analytics purposes. These service providers aggregate information about what you see and interact with on our website and on the pages of our partner websites on which the Service is available. We may also allow certain third-party analytics providers to utilize cookies that identify the Steelblox application that you are using and how you use that application. These third parties help us understand your usage of the different aspects of the application, such as user behavior, effectiveness of the application to allow us to make future improvements to the application, and effectiveness of the promotion channels that are used in the application.
Third Party Applications and Widgets
You can log in to our website, and may in some cases, our partner websites, using sign-in services such as Facebook Connect or an Open ID provider. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain PII with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our membership form. Services like Facebook Connect give you the option to post information about your Steelblox activities to your Facebook profile page to share with others within your Facebook network.
Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. If you use the Service, you will continue to receive generic advertisements.
The blog section of www.Steelblox.com offers visitors the ability to provide publicly accessible comments to the blogs we post. We require and, therefore, collect your email address and name if you chose to post a comment. The information you provide including the content of your post in this area may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. If you would like to remove a posting you have made, please contact us at info@Steelblox.com.
Steelblox uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel, and physical security measures designed to safeguard PII in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification. In addition, Steelblox uses reasonable methods in an effort to ensure that the PII we store about you is consistent with the updated information you provide to us. User Access and Choice
You may change or update your personally identifiable information which you have provided us by accessing the “Login/Register” tab after signing into your account on www.Steelblox.com. You may also deactivate your account by contacting info@Steelblox.com. If you choose to return to use the Service after deactivating your account, we may utilize some of the information you previously provided us or a partner in order to provide you with the Service.
