If a Consumer chooses to use the Service, the Consumer may elect to provide information including, but not limited to, that Consumer’s name, telephone number, and email address (collectively “Consumer Information”), that may be Personally Identifiable Information. We will also collect user submitted information including but not limited to ratings & reviews of businesses and service providers with whom the submitting Consumer has interacted through the Services, and any responses or other postings by a Business User.
You should be aware that if you upload, post, and/or distribute to the Services material, including but not limited to, Personally Identifiable Information, questions, feedback, reviews, data, comments, ratings, suggestions, information, text, data, software, sounds, photographs, podcasts, audio, audiovisual, video, images, graphics, messages and other content or materials of any nature (“User Submitted Materials”), those materials and the substantive information contained in them may be accessible by third parties.

Use of Personally Identifiable Information.
We do not intentionally provide PII to third parties except where you provide PII as part of making an appointment through the Services, to create a business profile to receive appointment requests, or to indicate interest in advertisers or in services provided by one of the businesses bookable through the Services. In any of the above situations, we may provide that information to the appropriate business, Consumer, or advertiser so that they may attempt to schedule an appointment or provide you with information regarding the advertised products or services about which you inquired.
If a Consumer provides any Consumer Information or User Submitted Materials to the Services that are relevant to a business with whom that Consumer makes an appointment or otherwise transacts through the Services, BlackTradeLines.com reserves the right to provide such businesses with the relevant Consumer Information and/or User Submitted Materials for purposes of managing the appointment and/or transaction with such Consumer, whether or not such information is Personally Identifiable Information.
Information and User Submitted Materials provided by a business on its profile or elsewhere on the Services will be accessible by Consumers. Information and User Submitted Materials provided by a Consumer, including any personally identifiable information provided when such Consumer makes an appointment through the Services, may be made available to the business from which the Consumer is requesting an appointment.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is information that, by itself, cannot be tracked to a specific individual. Examples of non-personally identifiable information include, but are not limited to, the type of internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, your IP address, the time and date of your use of the Services, and whether or not you clicked on hypertext links within the Services. We may collect non-personally identifiable information while you use the Services.
Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may use the non-personally identifiable information to generate user statistics that we may provide to prospective advertisers or partners. If we provide any such information to others, we will provide such information in the aggregate only and will not include any personally identifiable information about any individual users. We may also use the non-personally identifiable information to generate statistics that we may provide to you and to other businesses using the Services, including, for example, the number of appointments in a certain time period. We also may provide non-personally identifiable information to contractors so that they can perform services for us.
We may use such information to send you email messages and other notifications relating to the Services and your use of the Services. We reserve the right to notify you through e-mail, facsimiles, text or voice messages, or notices posted on the BlackTradeLines.com websites, as determined by BlackTradeLines.com in our discretion. By using the Services, you consent to receiving such notifications.
Business Users may opt-out of receiving notifications regarding appointments through the Services by logging into their BlackTradeLines.com account and changing the notification settings; opting-out of such notifications, however, will limit the effectiveness of the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither Business Users nor Consumers may opt-out of receiving notifications relating to support of the Services or other notices as required by law. If we have provided any third party with your personal information, you will have to contact the third-party directly with any opt-out request.
Schedule and Appointment Information
BlackTradeLines.com will not share a business’ schedule with anyone, except to the extent necessary to allow Consumers to choose and make appointments. We will not share a Consumer’s personal schedule information with anyone except the businesses with whom such Consumer makes an appointment. Each business will be able to access and view only the schedule for that business, and only information relating to appointments for that business.
Other Sharing of Information
In the event that we, in whole or in part, establish a partnership with another company, or are acquired by or merged with another company, information we collect may be transferred to the partner or the acquiring or merging company at time such merger, acquisition, or partnership is closed and to the extent necessary to fulfill our obligations under such merger, acquisition, or partnership.
We do not offer services to, or target, persons under the age of 13. In compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, we will purge any information we receive from people we believe to be children under 13 from our database and cancel the corresponding accounts.
We have implemented commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure, but we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. We cannot ensure the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet, and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure of such information.
