Irrespective of which country you live in, you authorize us to use your information in, and as a result to transfer it to and store it in, the United States, and any other country where we operate. Privacy and data protection laws in some of these countries may vary from the laws in the country where you live.
1. Information Collection and Use
Basic Account Information
When you create or update an account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, email address, or phone number. On the Bryllyant Services, your name and username are listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. Some Bryllyant Services, such as searching and viewing public user profiles, do not require registration.
You may use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to customize your account or enable Services, for example, for login verification. If you provide Bryllyant with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages to that number from Bryllyant. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services, to market to you, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse, and to help others find your account, including through third-party services and client applications. You may use your settings for email and mobile notifications to control notifications you receive from the Bryllyant Services. You may also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. Your privacy settings control whether others can find you on the Bryllyant Services by your email address or phone number.
You may provide us with profile information to make public on the Bryllyant Services, such as a short biography, your location, your website, date of birth, or a picture. For certain profile information fields we provide you with visibility settings to select who can see this information in your profile. If you provide us with profile information and you don’t see a visibility setting, that information is public. You may choose to upload and sync your address book so that we can help you find and connect with users you know or help other users find and connect with you. We may later tailor Content, such as making suggestions or showing user accounts to you and other users based on imported address book contacts. You can delete your imported address book contacts at any time. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your account on our Services to your account on another service in order to cross-post between our Services and that service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize. This information enables cross-posting, helps us improve the Services, and is deleted from our Services within a few weeks of your disconnecting from our Services your account on the other service. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.
Some information you provide us through the Bryllyant Services is public. Your public information includes your public profile, the people you follow or who follow you, Content you have reacted to, and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Bryllyant Services. We may use this information to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in, and to customize the Content we show you, including ads. You can update your public profile at any time using your account settings. Bryllyant broadly and instantly disseminates your public information to a wide range of users, customers, and services. For instance, your public information may be immediately delivered via our APIs to our partners and other third parties, including search engines, developers, and publishers that integrate Bryllyant Content into their services. When you share information or Content like photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public.
Bryllyant may receive information about your location. For example, you may choose to publish your location in your profile. We may also determine location by using other data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services and to improve and customize the Services, for example, with more relevant Content like local trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to follow.
Bryllyant may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on. Links and messages shared on the Services will be processed and links shortened to a https://bryllyant.com link.
When you use our Services, we may receive information ("Log Data") such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications, use your account to authenticate to a third-party website or application, or visit a third-party service that includes a Bryllyant button or widget. We may also receive Log Data when you click on, view or interact with links on our Services, including links to third-party applications, such as when you choose to install another application through Bryllyant. Bryllyant uses Log Data to provide, understand, and improve our Services, to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in, and to customize the Content we show you, including ads.
You may provide your payment information, including your credit or debit card number, card expiration date, CVV code, and billing address (collectively, "Payment Information"), along with your shipping address, to complete a commerce transaction through our Services. To facilitate future purchases, we may store your Payment Information (excluding CVV code) and shipping address, which you can remove from your account at any time using your account settings. We consider your Payment Information and shipping address private and do not make such information public. We collect and store information created by your purchases made through our Services ("Transaction Data"). Transaction Data may include the merchant’s name and the date, time, and amount of the transaction.
Third-Parties and Affiliates
Bryllyant uses a variety of third-party services to help provide our Services, such as hosting our various blogs and wikis, and to help us understand and improve the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your device as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address. Third-party ad partners may share information with us, like a browser cookie ID, website URL visited, mobile device ID, or cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as an email address), to help us measure and tailor ads. For example, this allows us to display ads about things you may have already shown interest in off of our Services. We may also receive information about you from our corporate affiliates in order to help provide, understand, and improve our Services and our affiliates’ services, including the delivery of ads.
2. Information Sharing and Disclosure
User Consent or Direction
We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party web client or application to access your account. Other users may share or disclose information about you, such as when they mention you, share a photo of you, or tag you in a photo. If you’ve shared information or send messages with another user who accesses the Bryllyant Services through a third-party service, keep in mind that the information may be shared with the third-party service.
If you make a payment as part of a commerce transaction through our Services, we may provide the seller, commerce provider, marketplace, or charity with your name, email address, shipping address, Payment Information and Transaction Data to facilitate payment processing, order fulfilment, and dispute resolution (including payment and shipping disputes) and to help prevent, detect, and investigate fraud or other prohibited activities. Please refer to these third parties’ privacy policies for information about their privacy practices.
