Big Cloud may collect various types of personal information, including:
- Personal and business contact information (such as name, postal address for billing and shipping, telephone number, and email address)
- Account ID
- Profile picture
- Social media information
- Payment card information
- Depending on the service we are providing to you we may also need to collect more sensitive personal information such as
- Location information, government-issued identification number, certain health information or other personally identifiable information – directly from you
- Data generated from activity, location and/or biometrically-enabled devices (e.g. wearables, smart phones) provided to you – either directly from the device or via the manufacturer
- Data about you from third parties (such as demographic data)
If you submit any personal information relating to other people, to us or to our service providers, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use their personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
We, and our service providers, may collect personal information from a variety of sources, including:
- From you: We may collect personal information; you elect to share with us such as your name or preferred means of communication and certain health information which will make the Big Cloud Services more effective.
- Through the Big Cloud Services: We may collect personal information you provide when you use Big Cloud Services, for example, make a purchase, or use our products or apps.
- Through Third Parties’ Services: We may collect personal information you provide when you use third party services (e.g. apps and devices) that utilize or are utilized by the Big Cloud Services.
- Offline: We may collect personal information you provide to us offline, such as when you visit our stores, when you enroll for the Big Cloud Services, place a verbal order over the phone or contact customer services.
- From Other Sources: We may collect your personal information from other sources, such as public databases, joint marketing partners, and social media platforms. If required to provide the Big Cloud Services, we may also receive your personal information from people with whom you are “friends” or otherwise connected on social media platforms. For example, if you elect to connect your social media account to your Big Cloud Services account, certain personal information from your social media account will be shared with us, which may include personal information that is part of your social media profile or your friends’ profiles. The reverse is also true if your social media “friends” connect their social media account to their Big Cloud Services account.
