Your privacy is critically important to us. At blossom we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
- In our products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.
BLOSSOM IO LIMITED (“blossom”) operates several websites including blossom.io and ramen.io. It is blossom’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, blossom collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. blossom’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how blossom’s visitors use its website. From time to time, blossom may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to blossom’s websites choose to interact with blossom in ways that require blossom to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that blossom gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at blossom.io to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with blossom – by purchasing access to the premium features – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, blossom collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with blossom. blossom does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
blossom may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. blossom may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, blossom does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
blossom discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on blossom’s behalf or to provide services available at blossom’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using blossom’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. blossom will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, blossom discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when blossom believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of blossom, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a blossom website and have supplied your email address, blossom may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with blossom and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. blossom takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If blossom, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that blossom goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of blossom may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
