Personal information and other data we collect

BlueFire collects personal information when you register for a BlueFire service, perform a donation or payment or otherwise voluntarily provide such information. We may combine personal information collected from you with information from other BlueFire services to provide a better user experience, including customizing content for you.

BlueFire uses cookies and other technologies to enhance your online experience and to learn about how you use our services in order to improve the quality of our services.

BlueFire servers automatically record information when you visit our website or use some of our products, including the URL, IP address, browser type and language, and the date and time of your request.

Please note that BlueFire never stores security codes (e.g., CVV2), PINs and magnetic track data. We avoid storing sensitive information, but when we must it is encrypted using the same methods that major financial institutions and the military use. Access to this data is severly limited by a number of digital and physical protections, in line with PCI-DSS requirements.

Uses

We may use personal information to provide the services you’ve requested, including services that display customized content.

When we use third parties to assist us in processing your information, we require that they comply with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

We may also share information with third parties in limited circumstances, including when complying with legal process, preventing credit card or ACH fraud, preventing imminent harm or danger, and ensuring the security of our network and services.

Any personal information that is collected as part of a financial transaction is shared with the beneficiaries of said transactions. For instance, if you donate to a non-profit, that non-profit will have access to the personal information that you shared (such as address, phone and email address).
