COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION

In the course of using the App, we collect and use information for the purposes identified below.

  • Registration: In order to use the App, you are required to download, install and log-in using the App. To log-in to the App, you must create an account. When you create an account, we collect your first and last name, email address, mobile phone number, company and occupation, and a password that you create. We use this information to create and administer your account and use of the App. 
  • Location Information: If you consent, we collect your location information by accessing your device’s GPS coordinates so that we can provide you with location-based services, such as providing you with relevant property listings. You can opt-out of location tracking at any time by turning off your location services for the App in the settings of your mobile device. 
  • Push Notifications: If you provide your consent to receive push notifications, we may display push notifications on your mobile device such as welcome messages, product features and promotional offers. If you also have enabled location services for the App, we will send you real-time push notifications when you are within the radius of a listed property. If you wish to stop receiving push notifications from us, you can turn off push notifications for the App in the settings of your mobile device.
  • Subscribe to our Mailing List or Newsletter: When you create an account on the App, you may be provided with the option to sign-up to receive our email mailing list or newsletter (including  offers and promotions). If you sign-up, we collect your name and email address. If you no longer wish to receive these communications, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link included at the bottom of the newsletter. Alternatively, you can opt-out of receiving our newsletter by contacting us at the contact information under “Contact Us” below. Please note that you may continue to receive certain transactional or account-related communications from us. 
  • App Usage Information & Analytics: As with many applications, certain limited data is required for the App to function on your device. This data includes the type of device hardware and operating system, unique device identifier, IP address, language settings, and the date and time the App accesses our servers. We use this information to help us understand the activity on our App, to monitor and improve our App, and to tailor your in-App experience. In addition, we may use third party service providers to collect analytical information about your use of the App, such as the App features used and time spent on the App, to help us tailor your in-app experience, improve our products and the quality of our App, and to manage and analyze data in order to better understand our users.

SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We do not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent, except as described below or as required or permitted by applicable law.

  • Service Providers: Your personal information may be transferred (or otherwise made available) to third parties that provide services on our behalf. We use service providers to provide services such as sending our marketing communications.

Our service providers may be located in the U.S., Canada or other foreign jurisdictions.
  • Legal and Compliance: We and our Canadian, U.S. and other foreign service providers may disclose your personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to another organization for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or contravention of law or detecting, suppressing or preventing fraud, or as otherwise may be required or permitted by applicable Canadian, U.S. or other law or legal process, which may include lawful access by U.S. or foreign courts, law enforcement or other government authorities. Your personal information may also be disclosed where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspected loss or harm to persons or property.
  • Sale of Business: We may transfer any information we have about you as an asset in connection with a proposed or completed merger, acquisition or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of Blimp or as part of a corporate reorganization or other change in corporate control.
