The Information We Collect
When you use the B.PLAT Services, we collect from you and other sources a variety of information, including technical information and personal information that can be used to identify you individually.
When you register to use the B.PLAT Services, you provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your name, username, phone number, email address, and payment information (e.g., credit card or debit card number).
When you launch the B.PLAT Services, we automatically collect a variety of information about your device and your use of the B.PLAT Services in log files, such as your device ID, operating system, and browser type, as well as information regarding items on the B.PLAT Services that you view or access and transactions you engage in using the B.PLAT Services. The B.PLAT Services gathers this information from all users. We may also use “cookies,” or small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive, so that the B.PLAT Services may access that information on return visits. We do not store your personal information in cookies, nor do we retrieve it from cookies. If you have set your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all the features of the B.PLAT Services.
If you choose to use our invitation service to recommend the B.PLAT Services to a friend, we may ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. B.PLAT uses your friend’s email address to send this one-time invitation by the user’s choice, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. By sharing your friend’s email address, you consent to release of that information for the purpose of B.PLAT Services emailing your friend an invitation. You may contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or by mail at B.PLAT LLC, 223 Bedford Ave. #1015, Brooklyn, NY 11211, to request that we remove your email address from our database.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
B.PLAT does not sell your information, and we take your privacy very seriously. In the course of providing the B.PLAT Services to you and other users, we make limited disclosures of your information to others for a variety of purposes.
The B.PLAT Services may currently or in the future enable users to publish information and communicate in a variety of ways. Any personal information that you voluntarily choose to make available to others through use of the B.PLAT Services, such as on a public profile page or in a comment, posting, or in other User Content, will be available for use by the recipients without restrictions. Once you make your personal information available to others in this manner, B.PLAT cannot control how it is collected, used, and disclosed by the recipients. If you choose to use features on the B.PLAT Services that allow you to publish or syndicate information to third-party services such as Facebook, use and disclosure of any information you choose to disclose in this manner will be subject to such third party’s privacy policies.
Although we may allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your User Content, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the B.PLAT Services will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention by others of any privacy settings or security measures contained in the B.PLAT Services.
B.PLAT may share automatically collected and other non-personal information in an aggregate form (such as user trends, application downloads, and demographic information) with a variety of third parties, including our affiliates, advertisers, publishers, and other current and prospective investors or business partners. This information sharing does not include sharing of personally identifiable information. This information may be used to assist such parties in understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and functionality on the B.PLAT Services.
In the event that the B.PLAT Services links to certain third-party content that requires access credentials (such as a name, user ID, or password) for access, we may provide the access credentials that you give to us to the operator or website owner of the third-party content to facilitate and enable your access to that third-party content.
We may share your information with third parties where we believe such sharing is (1) incidental to our ordinary business operations (e.g., emailing you through a third-party server); (2) legally required or when we choose to collaborate with a law enforcement agency in an investigation or other law enforcement activity; (3) useful to protect and defend our rights and property; (4) useful to protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public, as determined by B.PLAT; or (5) explicitly authorized by you.
B.PLAT does not provide any personal information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in. However, please note that if an advertiser asks B.PLAT to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.
Changing or Removing Information
B.PLAT users may modify or delete certain profile information at any time by logging into their account on a mobile device. Information will be updated promptly in active user databases. Individuals who wish to deactivate their B.PLAT Services account may do so by editing their user accounts or by emailing their requests to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time, but will not be available to other Users. After removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived form. User Content may also remain available if other Users have copied or stored your User Content.
When you make use of the communications features of the B.PLAT Services to share information with other individuals on B.PLAT or make information publicly available, (e.g., sending a favorites list to another user or posting a comment or review) you can remove such communications in the B.PLAT App, but some communications may remain stored in the B.PLAT server.
B.PLAT takes precautions, including by using industry-standard technologies and practices, to protect its users’ information and to limit the risk that information will be accessed without authorization. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to B.PLAT. You transmit information to B.PLAT at your own risk. If B.PLAT learns of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. B.PLAT may post a notice through the B.PLAT Services if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach, or if you have any questions about the security of B.PLAT applications, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
We shall investigate and report data breaches within 72 hours of becoming aware of such breach. When a breach of personal information is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals, B.PLAT, as Controller, will notify the affected individuals without undue delay.
Protection for Children
We generally do not collect personal information from children under the age of 16. If at any time in the future we plan to collect personal information from children under age 16, such collection and use, to the extent applicable, shall, when required, be done in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), with appropriate consent from the child’s parent or guardian as required by COPPA. When we become aware that personal information from a child under 16 has been collected without such child’s parent or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such data from our database.

Click the “Payment” button on your account setting page and click the “three dots” button next to the card you wish to unenroll from the program.
