Types of Information We Collect
In order to facilitate interactions with StartBlox websites and to manage the business operations of StartBlox, we may collect and maintain information about individuals from different sources including, for example:
- When you voluntarily provide us with information;
- From your browser, when you visit our websites and your browser interacts with our site;
- Your transactions with StartBlox, including the use of StartBlox products and services;
"Personally Identifiable Information" (also referred to as "Personal Data") is any information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available from StartBlox. Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") does not include information that does not identify an individual. On some StartBlox sites, you may be able to register for and/or order StartBlox products or services, participate in surveys, request information, or apply for a position, which may require that you provide PII.
How Information May Be Used By Us
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) received or collected by StartBlox is used primarily to complete transactions, fulfill requests, and engage application functionality. PII is used to facilitate performance of contracts between StartBlox and users of StartBlox products or services or as otherwise required by StartBlox business practices or needs. PII may be made available to StartBlox employees in the customary exercise of their duties to provide said services.
In order to access web-based applications via our site, a user must first complete a registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain PII (such as name and email address). This information is used to create an account and engage features of the applications. It will also be used to contact you about the products/services on our site that you are using or in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself if we ask it, but it is not required.
We request certain PII from you on our order form to initiate purchases. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We will not sell or rent your individual PII to anyone.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We may use a credit card processing company to bill users for products and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.
We may contract with third party service providers, contractors, and suppliers to conduct surveys or provide products, services, or other customer solutions to you based upon and using the information StartBlox gathers and receives. StartBlox contractors may have access to PII in the course of assisting StartBlox in providing these services to you. StartBlox endeavors to limit access to PII by such third parties to that which is necessary for the contractor to perform its designated functions. Although we use all reasonable means to ensure that the information you provide is not used by such third parties for purposes other than described in this policy, StartBlox is not responsible for any improper use of PII that is beyond our reasonable control.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number provided on our website:
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to PII. The computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
