Through our Services, Bluenumber empowers you to take control of your data pursuant to the GDPR. More generally, data subject control their own personal information on our Services, and we will not share their personal information with a third party unless consent is given.
Bluenumber itself may analyse and draw conclusions about any user’s personal or other information. In addition, we may share aggregated and/or deidentified data with third parties. Aggregated data is information that Bluenumber generates from individualized information but subsequently maintains and uses in a form that combines information about numerous individuals so that no individual can be identified. Examples include the number of users who live in a certain city, with specific gender and age group. De-identified information is information (including individualized information) from which Bluenumber has removed any data that personally identifies an individual. We may disclose aggregated or de-identified data derived from information about you to any third party. By registering for or using our Services you consent to the collection, use, and sharing of such aggregated and/or de-identified information as Bluenumber deems appropriate.
Our internal data protection resource is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. If you have any questions or concerns about Bluenumber’s policies or practices regarding Personal Data please email to [email protected].
