UPDATED: FEBRUARY 20th 2016.
bleepme has taken many steps that help you control how much information about you is shared when you use bleepme. Please read this document in its entirety to fully understand how bleepme works. It explains bleepme’s privacy practices, and what information we collect when you use our platform.
Information We Collect:
When you visit bleepme, we may collect information about what pages you access, about the device you are using, information that you send to us directly or post on our web site or on your page, and the address of web sites that refer you to bleepme. We also store your name and your email address when you register for an account or contact us directly.
We may also store an anonymized version of your IP address, which we may use to protect bleepme and its users from spam, viruses, identity theft, illegal or harmful activities; we use this information to understand how people use bleepme, this really helps us continually improve bleepme for your use and us. bleepme uses Google Analytics to gather and aggregate general information about user behaviour. From what Google tell us, the information gathered by Google on bleepme’s behalf is collected in such a way that neither bleepme, nor Google, can easily trace saved information back to any individual user.
We also create anonymous records by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We may use or share this anonymous data for any purpose — for example, to analyse request and usage patterns, scenarios and how you interact with our interface, this is always to help us improve our service to you.
Occasionally we will send via email information about bleepme that we think is necessary and important. By joining and maintaining an account with bleepme, you agree to receive our administrative and marketing emails as part of our service to you. You can opt-out of non-administrative emails at any time following the easy opt out links in the footer of the emails.
We will never contact you asking for your bleepme password. If you receive an email requesting this, then its definitely spam, you should delete it and report it asap to: firstname.lastname@example.org Please don’t give your bleepme password to anyone, and let us know about it so we can trace who sent it.
We never sell information about our users to any third party. This includes advertisers, data brokers, search engines, or anyone else.
We may share your personal information with third parties under several circumstances, including (1) if you tell us it is OK to do so (2) if we believe that we need to do so by law (3) if we contract with a third party service provider to offer services for you — for example, with a credit card processing company if you decide to buy something through bleepme.
bleepme does not have any affiliated partners right now. We will let you know if this changes in the future.
We will resist where possible requests to access information that we believe are not justified. bleepme’s policy is to give you, advance notice if we are going to release your information unless law prohibits us from doing so. If we think that by disclosing your information we may prevent serious harm to bleepme, its users, you, or anyone else for that matter, we may do so without notifying you.

As well as bleepme’s own conditions. Any content deemed malicious, pornographic, violent or abusive may be removed with no prior notice form bleepme.
Search engines will be able to see the content you post. Content you post may be copied, shared, or re-posted on bleepme and on other parts of the Internet in ways that you and we cannot control.
We have made it easy for you to delete posted content from your personal account, you do this in your ‘Edit Page’ after signing in, and also to delete your account altogether by hitting ‘Delete Account’ on your ‘My Account’ page.
Furthermore, deleting your account or specific content doesn’t mean that your content hasn’t been copied or shared on bleepme, and on other parts of the internet by people or services that have nothing to do with bleepme.
We suggest that you consider this when deciding what to post and what not to post on bleepme. Please think before you post, once its online it sharable.

We or a third party we work with may keep backups of bleepme’s data and code, which may or may not include posts and other information that you put on bleepme, even after you have deleted your account. Therefore, even after you delete your account, your data may remain in backups on our system, although it will be no longer visible or publicly accessible on bleepme.
