Collection of Personally Identifiable Information Provided by You

You can generally visit our Site without revealing any Personally Identifiable Information about yourself. You are not required to provide any Personally Identifiable Information to us, but in that case you will not be able to use the Services. In order to use the Services, you will need to register with Balluun to open an Account. To open an Account you will need to provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us. For example, we will ask you to provide us with your first and last name, your e-mail address, the name and street address of the company or other business entity on whose behalf you use the Services, your telephone number, your PayPal, credit card or other financial account information, and such other information as specified by Balluun from time-to-time.
In addition, we may collect Personally Identifiable Information that you provide to us through communications (whether initiated by you or us) that we have with you by telephone, e-mail, letter, at meetings or tradeshows, or in other forms of communication, and we may associate such Personally Identifiable Information with your existing Personally Identifiable Information in our records.

Opting out of such communications will not restrict our right to contact you to provide information in connection with any Services that we provide to you, or that we are otherwise required to provide to you under applicable law.
We will provide you with an opportunity to opt out before we use your Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than those described in this Privacy Policy.

We may use small text files called cookies to uniquely identify your browser. A cookie is an element of data that a web site sends to your browser, which may then store it on your system. We use cookies so that we can improve the overall experience, quality and accuracy of our Site and Services. For example, a cookie can store your log-in information and Services user preferences. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, and you can adjust your cookie settings in your browser to accept or reject cookies. However, you may not be able to effectively use certain features of the Site or Services if your cookies are disabled. We use cookies to assist us with the administration or the Site and Services, to enhance the user experience in using the Site and Services, to improve the Site and Services, and for research and development. We may connect and store information that we derive from cookies associated with your use of the Site and Services, with your Personally Identifiable Information.

Aggregate Information

The Site may track the total number of visitors to our Site and the number of users of our Services, the number of visitors to each page of our Site and Services, browser types, IP addresses and geographic locations of such visitors, and External Web Sites (defined below) linked to our Site and Services, and we may analyze this data in the aggregate. Such information will be maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form only and except as otherwise permitted by this Privacy Policy, it will not contain, or be associated with, your Personally Identifiable Information. We may use such aggregate information to analyze trends, administer the Site and Services, or gather broad demographic information about aggregate use, in each case for our use in developing, providing and improving the Site and Services, for the other uses specified in this Privacy Policy, and for our other business purposes.

Links to Third Party Sites

The Site and Services may provide links to other web sites or resources over which Balluun does not have control ('External Web Sites'). Such links do not constitute an endorsement by Balluun of those External Web Sites. You acknowledge that Balluun is providing these links to you only as a convenience only, and you further agree that Balluun is not responsible for the content of such External Web Sites. Your use of External Web Sites is subject to the terms of use and privacy policies located on the linked to External Web Sites.


We employ procedural and technological security measures that are reasonably designed to help protect your Personally Identifiable Information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. In this regard, Balluun uses firewalls, password protection, encryption, secure data connections, physical and personnel access restrictions to our production servers, and other security measures. While we strive to do our best to protect your privacy, Balluun cannot guarantee that unauthorized access to, or disclosure of, your Personally Identifiable Information will never occur.

Children's Privacy

Balluun recognizes the privacy interests of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children's online activities and interests. The Site and Services are only intended for persons who are aged 18 or older; the Site and Services are not intended for persons under 18 and Balluun does not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from such persons. If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian cannot consent to your use of the Site and Services.

Processing of Personal Information

Our computer systems are currently based in the United States of America ('U.S.') so your personal data will be processed by us in the U.S. where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union. In addition, the servers of our third party vendors and service providers may be located in the U.S. or other countries. By using the Site and Services as a visitor from outside the U.S., you agree to this Privacy Policy and you consent to the transfer of all such information to the U.S. and other countries, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection to that required in the European Union or other countries, and to the processing of that information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Your Use of Third Party Personally Identifiable Information

You agree that you will collect, store, transmit, publish, process, use, and disclose Registered User, Buyer, Seller, and other third party Personally Identifiable Information, (to the extent that you are permitted to conduct any of such activities through your use of the Services), solely in accordance with the terms of your privacy policy. Your privacy policy or a hypertext link to such privacy policy, must be prominently displayed on your Storefront. You hereby represent and warrant that you will not collect, store, transmit, publish, process, use, or disclose any Registered User, Buyer, Seller or third party Personally Identifiable Information in violation of the Terms of Service, your Terms of Sale (including, without limitation, the terms of your privacy policy), or any applicable local, state, federal or foreign privacy, consumer protection or other laws, rules or regulations.

Notice to California Residents

1. If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your personal information by us to a third party for the third party's direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to privacy@balluun.com.

2. California Do Not Track Disclosures: Under California law, website and online service operators are required to disclose how they respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other similar mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about a consumer’s online activities over time, to the extent the operator engages in that collection. Balluun does not currently track its users to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not use or respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. In the event Company decides to track the information of its users, it will comply with the user’s DNT signals.
