Privacy Statement

Last Modified: 1/1/2023

I. Introduction

The following Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) describes how Bonneville Communications Corporation (“Operator”) collects, uses, and shares personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information collected (collectively referred to as “Data”) through website, mobile website, mobile applications, and social media platforms we operate (collectively, the “Products”) and the services, features, advertisements or content we offer, including your communications with us or others through our messaging and phone services (collectively with the Products, the “Services”). The Policy applies when you use any of these Products or Services regardless of how you access or use the Services. This Policy describes the kinds of Data we may gather when you use the Products or Services, how we may use your Data, when we might disclose your Data, and how you can manage your Data.

II. Revisions

We may change the Policy at any time by posting revisions to the Policy on the Products or Services. If we make material changes to how we treat your Data, we will notify you through general notice through the Products. If you do not accept all of the terms, conditions and notices set forth in the Policy, you must not use the Products or Services. Please note that our Products and Services are under constant development. This Policy may therefore be modified and updated at any time and on an ongoing basis.  Each such modification will be effective upon posting on the Products and the effective date will be noted at the beginning of such revised Privacy Policy.   The date the Policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page.  Your continued use of the Products or Services after Operator posts a revised Privacy Policy signifies your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy.  Therefore, you should review the Privacy Policy periodically so that you are up to date on our most current policies and practices.

III. Collection of Information from Children

The Products and Services are not directed to, or intended for use by, anyone under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you only may use the Products and Services with permission from your parents or legal guardians. Operator does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, do not use or provide any information on any of the Operator’s Products or Services (websites, apps, etc.) or through any of its features, register on any of the Operator’s Products or Services (websites, apps, etc.), make any purchases through any of the Operator’s Products or Services (websites, apps, etc.) use any of the interactive or public comment features of the Operator’s Products or Services (websites, apps, etc.) or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use. If a child under 18 submits information through any part of the Products or Services, and we become aware that the person submitting the information is under 18, we will delete this information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us at [email protected]

IV. Information Collected

Type of Information Collected. When you use the Products or Services, we may collect several types of information about you and/or your use of the Products or Services. The general categories of information include Personally Identifiable Information or “PII” as well as non-personally identifiable information (“non-PII”). 
PII includes, but is not limited to, the following:

Non-PII includes information about your use of the Products and Services. We may collect information about your use of the Products and Services including: 

Certain features available within the Products or Services will require you to submit PII about yourself as a condition of participation. Some of the features may be offered by us, while others may be offered by third parties. (For example, you may be required to submit PII in order to enter a contest we conduct, to order certain products and services we offer, or to receive news updates by email from a third-party news source.) When you choose to submit PII to a third party in connection with your use of the Products or Services, the third party’s privacy policy, rather than this Policy, will control the use of your PII. YOU CAN ALWAYS REFUSE TO PROVIDE PII TO US, BUT THIS MAY RESULT IN DECREASED FUNCTIONALITY OF ANY OF THE OPERATOR’S WEB SITES FOR YOU AND LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO RECEIVE INFORMATION ABOUT PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THAT MAY BE OF PARTICULAR INTEREST TO YOU.

You also may provide information to be published or displayed (hereinafter, “posted”) on public areas of the Operator’s web sites, or transmitted to other users of the Operator’s web sites, or third parties (collectively, “User Contributions”). Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Operator’s web sites with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.

V. How Information is Collected

We collect information both actively and passively. For example, we will collect information about you that you voluntarily provide while using the Products and Services. In addition to information provided directly by you, we (and third parties that offer features through the Products or Services) may collect non-PII through the use of “cookies,” “web beacons,” or by other electronic means.  Please see the Cookie Policy for more information (See below). Information We Collect Automatically.  If you use the Products or Services, read or download information from the Products or Services, your web or mobile browser may automatically send us your internet or other network activity.

Information You Give To Us and Information We Collect From Others.  If you use the Products or Services, or you otherwise use or purchase our Products or Services, we receive and store information you enter on the Products or Services, or that you give us in-person, via telephone, email, or otherwise. We may also collect personal information from third parties that operate (a) portions of the Products or Services on our behalf or (b) independent websites. When we obtain personal data from third parties, we will treat the acquired information like the information that we collect ourselves.

VI. Cookie Policy: How We Collect Information From You and From Other Third Parties

Generally. We may place, or allow to be placed, cookies, web beacons and similar technologies on our Products and Services to store your username for easy logon, store your preferences, keep you logged in, perform analytics, analyze traffic, personalize content, and offer advertisements that match your interest.  We may use these technologies to collect information when you use our Products and Services such as your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, browsing and conversion information in order to provide you with a customized user experience.  These technologies may include Google Analytics and similar providers. You can learn more about how Google uses the information collected through this service at: www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

Advertisements (Including Direct, Targeted, Third Party).  In order to continue to bring you the Products and Services, we use advertising in our Products and Services. Some of these advertisements may contain cookies, collect information, such as your IP address and device type. We may also display targeted advertisements to you based on information you have supplied to us. For instance, if you have expressed an interest in a particular product, we may supply you with advertisements from selected marketing partners of that product. They will not, however, receive your personal information unless you volunteer it to such advertisers. We also work with ad network partners that display ads on our Products. To improve your ad experience on the Products and elsewhere on the Internet, we may send non-personal information to our ad network partners based on your browser’s activities, such as type of pages viewed and categories of interests, so that the advertising you see on the Product or other Internet websites, apps, etc., is relevant to you. Click here to learn more about our ad partner’s ad practices, including how to opt out of using anonymous information to select which ads to show you. We also may allow our affiliates and third-party advertising companies (including ad servers, ad agencies, technology vendors, or providers of sponsored content)  (collectively “Third Parties”) to use cookies on our Products and Services.  These Third Parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use the Operator’s web sites. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content on our Products as well as other websites, apps, platforms, etc. you visit. Some of these parties may use cookies in ways that we do not. You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access all or certain parts of the Products and Services. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log onto our Sites.

Please note, we do not control tracking technologies used by Third Parties on any of the Operator’s web sites or how they may be used. Third Parties have the ability to set and access their cookies on your computer. Third Parties’ use of their own cookies is subject to their own privacy policies. For more information about these specialized cookies and other technologies, and to learn more about behavioral advertising or to opt out of this type of advertising for some companies, you can visit https://www.networkadvertising.org or https://networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp. When using a mobile application, you may receive tailored in-application advertisements. Each operating system provides its own instructions on how to prevent the delivery of tailored in-application advertisements. You may review the instructions and/or the privacy settings for your operating system to find out how to opt out of tailored in-application advertisements.

If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

Third-Party Websites.  The Products allow advertising by Third Parties that provide links to a Third-Party website.  These Third Parties may use the technology described above to send (or “serve”) directly to your browser the advertisements that appear on our Products. When this happens, Third Parties automatically receive PII, such as your IP address, as well as non-PII and other information from your computer and browser, including your cookie information. They also may use cookies, Javascript, Pixel Tags and other technologies to deliver advertisements; collect information about the effectiveness of their advertisements; collect anonymous information about your visits to the Products, such as the number of times you have viewed an ad; or customize the advertising content you see. Third Parties will not collect your name, address, or other PII, unless you affirmatively provide it to them. Third Parties have the ability to set and access their cookies on your computer. Third Parties’ use of their own cookies is subject to their own privacy policies. For more information about these specialized cookies and other technologies, and to learn more about behavioral advertising or to opt out of this type of advertising for some companies, you can visit https://www.networkadvertising.org or https://networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp. When using a mobile application, you may receive tailored in-application advertisements. Each operating system provides its own instructions on how to prevent the delivery of tailored in-application advertisements. You may review the instructions and/or the privacy settings for your operating system to find out how to opt out of tailored in-application advertisements. Please note, clicking on an advertisement, links or other elements on the Products may take you to an entirely different site. Links to other sites may use our Product logos or styles as a result of a co-branding agreement. These sites may use their own cookies and may collect data and make use of that data in ways that the Products would not. After you leave our Products, this Policy will no longer apply to PII or any other data collected from or provided by you. You should check the other web site’s applicable privacy policy to determine how it will handle such data. Social Media.  We or Our third-party service providers, advertisers, and partners may use technologies like cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, device or other identifiers and local storage  to identify parts of the Products and Services you have visited and/or purchased, identify advertisements you have seen, and otherwise deliver, secure, and understand products, services  and ads, on and off Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and other social media platforms. These technologies also may be used to gather information for remarketing to similar audiences on our Products. Third party advertisements displayed on the Products may also contain cookies set by third party advertisers. The Operator does not control these cookies and is not responsible for the content or practices of any linked site; users of the Products and Services should check the privacy policy of the third-party advertiser to see whether and how it uses cookies.

VII. How Information Is Used and Shared

We may use information we collect to do the following, among other things:

VIII. Disclosure

WE MAY DISCLOSE PII ABOUT YOU TO A THIRD PARTY FOR COMPENSATION. In addition, we may disclose PII and Non-PII as follows:

In addition, we may share your information as described below:

IX. Forums

The Products and Services may include forums (such as message boards, chat rooms, comment boards, and reviews) that enable users to post a comment or communicate with each other. The Operator is under no obligation to moderate or edit the forums and will not be responsible for the content or use of any material posted on any forum within the Products or Services. The Operator retains the right to delete at any time and for any reason any material posted within the Products or Services.

X. Information Security

How Do We Protect Personal Data?  We take information security seriously, and we use reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect the PII we collect from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. The Operator protects data using administrative, technical, and physical safeguards.  When we use third-party service providers, we ask those providers to implement similar safeguards. However, we cannot guarantee that your information is completely secure either within the Company or on the systems of third-party service providers.

But we have no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit even when a link may appear to those websites on our Products or through our Services. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your PII.

Additionally, and as you are likely aware, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take commercially reasonable steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your PII, searches or other communications will always remain secure. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to the Operator’s web sites. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on any of the Operator’s web sites.

In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your PII, we will notify you if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may notify you under such circumstances using the e-mail address(es) we have on record for you. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your PII. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission's website at https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/ for information about how to protect against identity theft.

How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Data?

We retain personal data we collect from you when we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (i.e., to provide you with the Services you have requested or to comply with applicable legal requirements). When we no longer have an ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will physically destroy, delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible, then we will securely store your personal data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

XII. Your State Privacy Rights

If you are a California, Nevada or Virginia resident, your state’s laws may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information. Please see the state-specific sections below:

Important Information for California Residents: Your California Privacy Rights

California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Product and Services that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at Do Not Sell My Data.

These additional disclosures for California residents apply only to individuals who reside in California. The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended and together with all applicable regulations (“CCPA”) provides additional rights to know, delete and opt out, and requires businesses collecting or disclosing personal information to provide notices and means to exercise those rights. The words used in this section have the meanings given to them in the CCPA, which may be broader than their common meaning. For example, the definition of “personal information” under the CCPA includes your name, but also more general information such as age.

Notice of Collection

The categories of personal information that we may have collected – as described by the CCPA – in the past 12 months are:

Identifiers: name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol (IP) address, email address, account name. We may use this data to provide customers with an account, enabling them to post listings or messages, or subscribe to our newsletters. Additionally, we use online identifiers to understand how consumers use our products and services.

Customer records information: name, address, telephone number, bank account number, credit, or debit card number. We collect this information when a user performs a payment transaction on one of our services.

Commercial information: We use a unique identifier to track consumer behavior on our products. We then use that data to personalize content and or advertising products to the consumer. Internet or other electronic network activity information: We collect this data specific to our websites and applications. We do not operate a web browser or search technology, but we track searches performed on our website. We do this for a few purposes. We allow users to create saved searches and alerts. Saved searches and alerts enable users to opt-in to a notification service. When the user creates a saved search, if a new product is posted on our service that matches their search criteria, we will send them an email or mobile phone alert. We also use their search behavior to personalize content and advertising.

Geolocation data: When using our service, a user can search for information using location data such as a city or zip code. Furthermore, on a mobile device, users can opt-in to the mobile device geolocation service to show the user listings from a selected mile radius from their current geolocation.

Inferences: We use consumer behavior to create profiles and make inferences about future consumer behavior.

We collect and use these categories of personal information for the business purposes and sharing practices described in our policy above.

We do not generally “sell” personal information as the term “sell” is traditionally understood. However, to the extent “sale” under the CCPA is interpreted to include advertising technology activities such as those disclosed in the above sections as a “sale,” we provide you the option to request that we not “sell” your personal information. We do not sell the personal information of minors known to be under the age of 16 without affirmative authorization.

We sell or disclose the following categories of personal information for commercial purposes: identifiers, demographic information, commercial information, internet activity, geolocation data and inferences. We use and partner with different types of entities to assist with our daily operations and manage our services.

Right to Know and Delete

If you are a California resident, you have the right to delete the personal information we have collected from you and the right to know certain information about our data practices in the preceding 12 months (also called a data portability request). In particular, you have the right to request the following from us:

To exercise any of these rights, please submit a request here. You may also contact us by emailing [email protected]. We will use the information you provide to us solely for the purpose of verifying your request and locating your data, if any, within our records. Please note, under California law, such requests can be made a maximum of twice per twelve-month period. We have a duty as the holder of certain personal information to verify your identity when making requests to know or delete personal information and to ensure that dissemination of that information would not cause harm to you if it were distributed to another person. To verify your identity, we will request and collect additional personal information from you to match it against our records. We may ask for additional information or documentation if we feel it is necessary to confirm your identity with the necessary degree of certainty. We may communicate with you through email, a secure message center, or other reasonably necessary and appropriate means. We do have the right to deny requests under certain circumstances. In such cases, we will notify you of the reasons for denial. We will not provide you with specific pieces of personal information if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of that personal information, your account with us, or the security of our systems or networks. In no event will we disclose, if we have collected it, your Social Security number, driver’s license number or other government-issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, an account password, or security questions and answers.

Right to Opt-Out

To the extent we sell your personal information as the term "sell" is defined under the California Consumer Privacy Act, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information by us to third parties at any time. You may submit a request to opt-out of by clicking Do Not Sell My Personal Information . You may also contact us by emailing [email protected].

Non-discrimination

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercising any of your rights.

Authorized Agent

You may be entitled, in accordance with applicable law, to submit a request via an authorized agent acting on your behalf. To do so, we must receive written authorization or a power of attorney, signed by you, for the agent to act on your behalf. You will still need to verify your identity directly with us.

California Do Not Track Disclosure

Certain web browsers may allow you to enable a “do not track” option that sends signals to the websites you visit indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different than blocking cookies as browsers with the “do not track” option selected may still accept cookies. Right now, there is no industry standard for how companies should respond to “do not track” signals, although one may be adopted in the future. We do not respond to “do not track” signals at this time. If we do so in the future, we will modify this Policy accordingly. More information about “do not track” is available at www.allaboutdnt.com.

Important Information for Nevada Residents: Your Nevada Privacy Rights

If you are a resident of Nevada, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of certain Personal Data to third parties who intend to license or sell that Personal Data. You can exercise this right by contacting us here.

These additional disclosures for Virginia residents apply only to individuals who reside in Virginia. The Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act provides additional rights to confirm and access, correct, delete, obtain a copy, and opt out, and requires businesses collecting or disclosing personal information to provide notices and means to exercise those rights.
