HOW WE USE YOUR DATA
To provide the Services and personalize your experience:
We use information about you to provide the Services to you, including to process transactions with you, authenticate you when you log in, provide customer support, and operate and maintain the Services. For example, we use the email address and name you provide in your account to identify you. Our Services also include tailored features that personalize your experience, enhance your productivity, and improve your ability to collaborate effectively with others by providing simplified search capabilities, notifications, and recommendations that are most relevant for you. For example, we may use your recent Interface utilization history to provide targeted feature education we think relevant to your user login role. We may use your email domain to infer your affiliation with a particular organization or industry to personalize the content and experience you receive on our websites. Where you use multiple Services, we combine information about you and your activities to provide an integrated experience, such as to allow you to view multiple projects in the Interface.
For research and development:
We are always looking for ways to make our Products and Services more useful to you – smarter, faster, secure and integrated. We use collective learnings about how people use our Services and feedback provided directly to us to troubleshoot and to identify trends, usage, activity patterns and areas for integration and improvement of the Products and Services. We also test and analyze certain new features with some users before rolling the feature out to all users.
To communicate with you about the Services:
We use your contact information to send transactional communications via email and within the Services, including confirming your order, reminding you of contract and lease expirations, responding to your comments, questions and requests, providing customer support, and sending you technical notices, updates, security alerts, and administrative messages. We also provide tailored communications based on your activity and interactions with us. For example, certain actions you take in the Interface may automatically trigger a feature or feature education, or feedback request within the Interface that would make that task easier. We also send you communications as you onboard. These communications are part of the Services and in most cases you cannot opt out of them. If an opt out is available, you will find that option within the communication itself or in your account settings.
To market, promote and drive engagement with the Services:
We use your contact information and information about how you use the Services to send promotional communications that may be of specific interest to you. These communications are aimed at driving engagement and maximizing what you get out of the Services, including information about new features, survey requests, newsletters, and events we think may be of interest to you. We also communicate with you about new product offers and promotions. You may opt out of our email list at any time by simply following the instructions to “Unsubscribe” within each newsletter or offering.
For Client Support:
We use your information to assist with Product installation, resolve technical issues you encounter, to respond to your requests for assistance, to analyze Product performance, and to repair and improve the Services.
For safety and security:
We use information about you and your Service use to verify accounts and activity, to monitor suspicious or fraudulent activity and to identify violations of Service policies.
To protect our legitimate business interests and legal rights:
Where required by law or where we believe it is necessary to protect our legal rights, interests and the interests of others, we use information about you in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory, and audit functions, and disclosures in connection with the acquisition, merger or sale of a business.
With your consent:
We use information about you where you have given us consent to do so for a specific purpose not listed above. For example, we may publish testimonials or featured customer stories to promote the Services, with your permission.
SHARING PERSONAL DATA WITH THIRD PARTIES
We share your information only where you ask us to, where it’s a necessary part of doing business with you and providing you with the services, or where we need to for legal reasons.
We share information relating to our users with selected third parties who provide us with a variety of different services that support the delivery of our services (let’s call them “Third Party Processors”). These Third Party Processors range from providers of technical infrastructure to Customs processing. We require any Third Party Processor which handles information on our behalf to do so pursuant to contractual terms which require that the information is kept secure, is processed in accordance with applicable data protection laws, and used only as we have instructed and not for that Third Party Processor’s own purposes (unless you have explicitly consented to them doing so).
Third Party Processors may be located in, or process your information, outside of the country in which you are based. Where our use of a Third Party Processor involves the transfer of personal data from within Europe to a location outside of the European Economic Area, we will put in place appropriate measures to ensure that the personal data is adequately protected in that location, most often by applying European Commission-approved standard contractual clauses alongside robust security checks.
The types of Third Party Processors we may share elements of your personal data with include:
- Payment processors engaged by us to securely handle payment information
- Shipping services, including shipment handling and Customs clearing, engaged to handle the shipment of hardware between OxBlue and Customer

THIRD PARTY EMAIL COLLECTION
In addition to OxBlue.com visitors providing permission to receive newsletters and special offers, we do work with various marketing partners to promote our newsletters and special offers to their visitors. Each promotion on third-party sites is branded under OxBlue.com.
OxBlue collects information provided during order placement to facilitate order fulfillment and support.
You are entitled to be sent a copy of your personal data, request correction of your data, or request deletion or removal of your data.
OxBlue may be required to disclose personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Where the legal basis for us processing your personal data is that you have provided your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time. If you withdraw your consent, this will not make processing which we undertook before you withdrew your consent unlawful. You can withdraw your consent by contacting us, details provided in Contacting OxBlue section.
Please be aware that, in certain circumstances, where you do not provide personal information which is required by us, we will not be able to provide the products and services under our contract with you. You will be made aware if this situation arises and what the consequences of not provided the personal information will be.
Protecting the security of your personal information is very important to us. When we store information you’ve provided to us, that information is protected by security measures that include “firewalls” (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps keep unauthorized visitors from accessing information within our computer network), “intrusion detection systems” (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps detect any unauthorized visitors), and a “secure socket layer” (data encryption used when transmitting certain information). Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data repository can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while OxBlue.com strives to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information.
