What information do we collect?

BMC may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of Personal Data about you. Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

  • Marketing and Communications Dataincludes your preferences in receiving marketing from us and your communication preferences.

We also collect and use Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your Personal Data but is not considered Personal Data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your Personal Data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as Personal Data which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you while you visit the Site (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offenses.

What do we use this information for?

We will only use your Personal Data when the law allows us to. We must use your data only on a lawful basis including, but not limited to using such data to fulfil a contract we have with you; to comply with legal obligations; to lawfully gain information to help us develop our services; to monitor how our website is being used; for marketing and communications purposes (as set forth below) to keep you informed of developments and new products; to identify issues with our website etc. that we need to fix. By providing us your Personal Data you indicate that you consent to allow us to process and maintain your Personal Data.
Most commonly, we will use your Personal Data in the following circumstances:

  • BMC may collect information in conjunction with registration for programs and related services and to perform follow-up with its program registrants, as part of the registration process for BMC programs.
  • Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you to provide you with BMC services available to you.
  • We may use your IP Address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer BMC’s Site.

  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
  • Marketing
    We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, and Usage to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
    You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased goods or services from us or if you provided us with your details when you registered for a promotion and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.
    We will not supply your details to any company outside BMC for marketing purposes. Currently, only we will contact you for marketing purposes. If in the future we ask a third party approved by us to contact you in order to fulfill the services we provide to you we will ensure that we have a GDPR agreement with that third party regarding the use of any data we supply them about you for the purposes of their contacting you.
    If we mistakenly email an individual, the individual should use the opt out/ unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email, and inform us of our error at hello@bluemesagroup.com.

Opting out of marketing messages

You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at hello@bluemesagroup.com. Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to Personal Data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, registration, product/service experience or other transactions.

Data retention

We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
We will actively review the information we hold and when there is no longer a customer, legal or business need for us to hold it, we will either delete it securely or in some cases anonymize it.
To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
By law, we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.
In some circumstances, you can ask us to delete your data.
In some circumstances, we may anonymize your Personal Data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

With whom do we share your information?

We will not sell, share or rent personal information to others except in accordance with this Policy.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your Personal Data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your Personal Data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your Personal Data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
