Privacy Policy

Last Updated: May 12 , 2021

Blanc Technologies Inc. ("Blanc", “our”, “us” or “we”), respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”).

This Privacy Policy applies to information collected by Blanc through the Blanc Site, any Blanc computer software downloadable or otherwise available from the Blanc Site ("Blanc Software") and any Blanc services purchased or otherwise made available from the Blanc Site ("Blanc Services") (collectively, the "Blanc Properties"). This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of any third party websites, applications or services that Blanc does not own or maintain (collectively, “Third Party Services”) or to any third parties that use the Blanc Application Programming Interface (API) to perform any function related to the Blanc Properties (“Integrated Platforms”). In particular, this Privacy Policy does not cover any information or other content you can view via the Blanc Properties on Integrated Platforms or information you provide to Third Party Services accessed via the Blanc Properties. As further detailed below, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of any Third Party Services. If you are a Viewer we encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of the Blanc User whose Content you view and the privacy policies of any Integrated Platforms or Third Party Services used by such User which you may access via the Blanc Properties.

This Privacy Policy also does not cover any information, recorded in any form, about more than one individual where the identity of the individuals is not known, cannot be inferred from the information, and is not linked or reasonably linkable to an individual, including via a device (“Aggregated Information”). Blanc retains the right to use Aggregated Information in any way that it reasonably determines is appropriate.

By using the Blanc Services or otherwise providing us with your Personal Information (as defined below), you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy, as they may be amended by us from time to time, and agreeing to our collection and use of your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the collection, use and disclosure of your information in this way, please do not use any of the Blanc Properties or otherwise provide Blanc with Personal Information.

What information Blanc collects from you

Blanc collects only the information required to provide products and services to you. The amount of information provided by you and collected by Blanc depends on the circumstances. Blanc may collect two (2) types of information about you: Personal and Non-Personal.

  1. “Personal Information.” Personal Information means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular individual or household, or is otherwise defined as personal information under applicable law. Blanc may collect Personal Information when you use the Blanc Properties including, without limitation, setting up account information, filling out surveys, corresponding with Blanc, or otherwise volunteering information about yourself.

  2. “Non-Personal Information.” Non-Personal Information refers to information that does not meet the definition of Personal Information above. Blanc may collect Non-Personal Information through any of the methods discussed above as well as automatically through use of industry standard technologies described further below.

How Blanc collects your information

  1. Registration. Prior to using one or more of the Blanc Properties, Blanc may require you to provide us with certain Personal Information and Non-Personal Information to create an account (“Account”) or to enable features or functionality of the Blanc Properties.

  2. Users. Blanc may gather Personal Information about organizational representatives via various methods (phone, email, online forms, in-person meetings) but only if such Personal Information is submitted voluntarily. Blanc may use such Personal Information for sales, marketing, and support of the Blanc Properties. This Personal Information is never shared with third parties other than Third Party Service Providers utilized by a User in connection with Blanc Services.

  3. User communications. When you send email or other communications to us, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve the Blanc Properties.

  4. Information Collected Through Technology. Blanc automatically collects and receives certain information from your computer or mobile device, including the activities you perform on the Blanc Site, the Blanc Software and the Blanc Services, the type of hardware and software you are using (for example, your operating system or browser), and information obtained from cookies (see below). If you have an Account, we may link this Non-Personal Information to your Account to better understand your needs and the needs of Users in the aggregate, diagnose problems, analyze trends, provide services, improve the features and usability of the Blanc Properties, and better understand and market to our customers and Users.

  5. We use technology to automatically gather information by the following methods:

    • Cookies. Blanc uses cookies on the Blanc Site and other aspects of the Blanc Properties. Cookies, including local shared objects, are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive which work by assigning to your computer a unique number that has no meaning outside of the Blanc Properties. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually configure your browser to prevent this. Not accepting cookies may make certain features of the Bloom Properties unavailable to you.

    • IP Address. You may visit many areas of the Blanc Site anonymously without the need to become a registered User. Even in such cases, Blanc may collect IP addresses automatically. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you begin services with an Internet services provider. Each time you access the Blanc Site and each time you request one of the pages of the Blanc Site, the server logs your IP address.

    • Web Beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in web pages and emails. Blanc may use these technical methods in HTML emails that Blanc sends to Users to determine whether they have opened those emails and/or clicked on links in those emails. The information from use of these technical methods may be collected in a form that is Personal Information.

    • Tracking Content Usage. If you use the Blanc Services and you post audio visual materials including, without limitation, videos, links, logos, artwork, graphics, pictures, advertisements, sound and other related intellectual property contained in such materials (collectively, “Content”) to your website or to a third party website, Blanc tracks and captures information associated with User accounts and the use of Content by those that access your Content.

How Blanc uses your information

  1. Personal Information. Blanc identifies the purpose for which your Personal Information is collected and will be used or disclosed. If that purpose is not listed below, we will identify any additional purposes for which we will collect your Personal Information, before or at the time of collection, and we will obtain your consent to collect, use or disclose your Personal Information for such additional purpose(s).

  2. By using the Blanc Properties, you will be deemed to consent to our use of your Personal Information for the purposes of:

    • communicating with you generally;

    • processing your purchases;

    • processing and keeping track of transactions and reporting back to you;

    • protecting against fraud or error;

    • providing information or services requested by you;

    • administering and managing the Blanc Properties and our business operations;

    • personalizing your experience with the Blanc Site, as well as evaluating statistics on Blanc Site activity;

    • performing statistical analyses of your behavior and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of the Blanc Site;

    • communicating with you on other websites;

    • email gating;

    • delivery of content and information to Third Party Services Providers;

    • complying with legal and governmental requirements; and/or

    • fulfilling any other purpose that would be reasonably apparent to the average person at the time that we collect it.

  3. Users utilize Blanc Properties to manage and deliver Content to Viewers. As part of this process, Blanc may collect Personal Information from you. Otherwise, we will obtain your express consent (by verbal, written or electronic agreement) to collect, use or disclose your Personal Information. You can change your consent preferences at any time by contacting us at

  4. Blanc extends the rights granted to “data subjects” under the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) to all of its Users. Consequently, you have the right to withdraw your consent to our processing of your Personal Information at any time (if our processing is based on consent) and the right to object to our processing of your Personal Information (if processing is based on legitimate interests).

  5. Non-Personal Information. Blanc may use Non-Personal Information for the following purposes:

    • System Administration: Blanc may use Non-Personal Information for the purposes of system administration, assisting in diagnosing problems with Blanc servers, monitoring Blanc's system performance and traffic on the Blanc Properties and to gather broad demographic information about Blanc Users.

    • Personalization: Blanc uses cookies and IP addresses to track features such as delivering Content specific to your interests and informing you of new, relevant services or certain third party offerings.

How to access, change and erase your personal information

Upon request, Blanc will allow Users to update or correct Personal Information previously submitted, but only to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Additionally, upon request, Blanc will delete Personal Information from the database where such information is stored; however, it may be impossible to entirely delete a User’s entry without some residual information being retained due to the manner in which data backups are maintained. Requests to delete Personal Information may be submitted to

Users also have the right to receive their Personal Information from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and the right to transmit their Personal Information to another controller without hindrance from us (data portability).

Email preferences

Blanc may use your Personal Information to send you emails periodically listing promotions or events relating to the Blanc Properties. You have the choice to opt-out of receiving such promotional emails by sending an email to hello@useblanc.comand/or following the instructions in such correspondence. Once Blanc's has processed your opt-out request, Blanc will not send you promotional emails unless you opt back in to receiving such communications.

Disclosure of information to third parties

Except as described below, we do not sell, transfer or otherwise disclose, sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your Personal Information to outside parties. This statement does not include trusted third party service providers who assist us in administering and providing the Blanc Properties or provide services to us. Examples include storing and managed Content, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, integrations of Third Party Services such as CRM and MAP services, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These third party service providers will have access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes, and they are subject to appropriate agreements with Blanc and/or its Users to secure and protect the confidentiality of your Personal Information.

We may use service providers located outside of the United States, and, if applicable, your Personal Information may be processed and stored in other countries and therefore may be subject to disclosure under the laws of those countries. You explicitly consent and agree to such transfer, storing and/or processing of your Personal Information outside of the United States or other country in which you are located.

We may share Payment Information with third parties for purposes of fraud prevention or to process payment transactions.

We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property or for safety. We may also provide non-Personal Information to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.

Information, including Personal Information, which we collect from Users and Viewers, is considered to be a business asset. As a result, in the unlikely event that we go out of business, enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your Personal Information may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.

We may also share information related to your account with your employer or organization if you have an individual Blanc account and your account email domain is owned or managed by your employer or organization. You consent to disclosure of your information for the above purposes.

Safeguarding your personal information

Blanc takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of Personal Information. These include, but are not limited to, internal reviews of: (a) Blanc's data collection; (b) storage and processing practices; (c) electronic security measures; and (d) physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where Blanc stores Personal Information.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.

All Blanc employees, contractors and agents who access Personal Information are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution or unauthorized use or disclosure of Personal Information.

Some or all of the Personal Information we collect may be stored or processed on servers located outside your jurisdiction of residence, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions.

Retention of information

Blanc retains the Personal Information that we collect about you for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We also may retain your Personal Information for a longer period of time on the basis of our legitimate interests in providing or marketing our services to you or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. Even if we delete some or all of your Personal Information, we may continue to retain and use information that has been aggregated or anonymized so that it can no longer be used for personal identification.

Children and students

Blanc takes the privacy of children and students extremely seriously. Personal information we collect through the Blanc Services may be subject to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and/or the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”).

COPPA Compliance. COPPA requires that operators of websites and online services that collect the personal information of children under 13 years of age (i) inform parents and legal guardians about their practices for collecting, using and disclosing such personal information and (ii) obtain verifiable consent from parents and legal guardians for doing so. We only collect personal information through the Blanc Services from a child under 13 if that student’s school, school district or teacher has agreed to obtain parental consent for that child to use the Blanc Services and disclose personal information to us for purposes of providing the Blanc Services, or we have directly obtained such parental consent.

If you are a student under 13, please do not send any personal information about yourself to us if your school, school district or teacher has not obtained this prior consent from your parent or guardian, or we have not obtained such consent, and please do not send any personal information other than what we request from you in connection with the Blanc Services. If we learn we have collected personal information from a student under 13 without parental consent having been obtained, or if we learn a student under 13 has provided us personal information beyond what we request from him or her, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a student under 13 may have provided us with personal information in violation of this Privacy Policy, please contact us at

FERPA Compliance. FERPA protects personally identifiable information contained in students’ education records from unauthorized disclosure. Consistent with FERPA, we will only use education records, as defined under FERPA, for the purpose of providing agreed services to a school, school district or teacher. We will never share or sell FERPA-protected information, or use it for any other purposes, except as otherwise directed or permitted by the school, school district or teacher. If a parent or eligible student requests access to education records that are hosted on our servers, we will help facilitate such access.
