In Bhlue’s sole discretion, Bhlue may remove content that may be infringing on another person’s intellectual property rights, with or without notice to the potential infringer. If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the owner or administrator of the affected site or content so that they may make a counter-notification, but we are not liable for any failure to make such contact.

If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide a written notice of infringement containing the information specified below:

  • An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;

  • Your physical address, telephone number, and email address;
  • A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • A statement by you affirming that the information provided in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.

To notify Bhlue of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement, email us at admin@bhlue.com.

You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section your notice may be invalid. Please also note that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights.

COPYRIGHT – COUNTER-NOTICE
If you believe the User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use such content, you may submit a counter-notice to the address listed above containing the following information:

  • Your physical or electronic signature;
  • Identification of the User Content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the User Content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the User Content;
  • Your name, physical address, telephone number, and email address; and
  • A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal and state courts, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

After we receive your counter-notice, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notice, it includes your personal information. By submitting a counter-notice, you consent to having your information revealed in this way. We will not forward the counter-notice to any party other than the original claimant, unless required to do so by law. After we send the counter-notice, the claimant must then notify us within 10 days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to User Content. If we receive such notification we will not restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may reinstate the material, but are under no obligation to do so.

Please note any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.

The Site or Services may contain, or direct you to sites containing, information that some people may find offensive or inappropriate. Bhlue makes no representations concerning, and Bhlue will not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality or decency of material contained in or accessed through the Site or the Services. You release Bhlue from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired content through the Site or the Services.

None of Bhlue’s affiliates, subsidiaries or its or their officers, directors, employees or agents (collectively the “Bhlue Parties”) guarantees or represents the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, reliability, suitability or usefulness of any portion of the site, including any content contained in or accessed through the site or service. None of the Bhlue Parties warrant that this Site or the Service will be uninterrupted or error free, that any specific information that is requested will be provided or that this site or its server are or will be free of computer viruses or other harmful elements. You expressly agree that the entire risk as to the quality and performance of this Site and the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of the content or Services is assumed solely by you. The Service, content, and Site are provided on an “as is” basis, without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, without limitation, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

INDEMNITY
You agree to indemnify and hold all of the Bhlue Parties harmless from and against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, demands, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or in connection with any User Content, any Third Party Content you post or link to or any Third Party Sites you link to on the Site, your conduct in connection with the Service or the Site or with other Users of the Service or the Site, or any violation of the Terms of Use or of any law or the rights of any third party.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

You acknowledge that if no fees are paid to Bhlue for the Service, you shall be limited to injunctive relief only, unless otherwise permitted by law, and shall not be entitled to damages of any kind from Bhlue, regardless of the cause of action. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for negligence, consequential, incidental or other damages, in such jurisdictions the Bhlue Parties’ liability is limited to the greatest extent permitted by law. Your sole remedy for dissatisfaction with this site is to stop using this site. Certain state laws do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages.

Privacy Policy

Welcome to Bhlue, your online, cloud based Career Planning Counselor. Bhlue uses questionnaires and other tools to help match its users with resources such as, but not limited to, post-secondary education, training and real world experiences based on user’s interests, skills and passions. We have a laser focus on young people who are interested in learning about alternatives to a 4 year college degree that can bring them the success they dream about.

Bhlue Publishing LLC (“Bhlue”, “us”, or “we”) has adopted this Privacy Policy (“Policy”), which applies to all users of our website www.bhlue.com , and any of its sub-domains (the “Site”), and the account, services, websites, mobile applications, products and networks found at or related to the Site (the “Service”). This Policy is incorporated into and subject to our “Terms of Use”. Unless otherwise defined in this Policy, terms used in this Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Use. We may modify this Policy, at any time and for any reason, by posting the revised Policy on our Site with the updated effective date. Accordingly, you should periodically revisit this page to view our then current Privacy Policy.

Bhlue is committed to protecting your privacy while promoting responsible data sharing. This Privacy Policy describes our policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information and data on our Site and through our Service. We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully before using the Site or the Services. You understand that by using the Site or Service you agree to this Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT and HOW WE COLLECT IT

We collect certain information about you that may include, but is not limited to, your name, gender, profile photo, resume, grade level, high school, location/hometown, website and email address (“Personal Information,” “Personally Identifiable Information,” or “PII”). If you create a User Account by logging into the Service via a third-party social networking site (“SNS”, such as Facebook), you use the Personal Information you have already provided to the SNS to create your User Account on our Service. By using Facebook Connect, for example, you are granting us permission to access the Personal Information available to us in your Facebook account and integrate it into our Service, pursuant to the Facebook Terms of Use regarding your use of our Service via Facebook. The Personal Information we collect and embed in our Service, therefore, may depend on the privacy settings you have with the SNS. Accordingly, you should check the privacy settings on your SNS account and review the SNS’s privacy and data policies, in addition to this Policy.

When you use our Site, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform, which may include location information; computer or device configuration; IP address and URL of referring website, if any; pages viewed; number of visitors; and length of visits. We treat this data as “non-personal information,” except where we are required to treat it as Personally Identifiable Information under applicable law. Certain non-personal information could be considered part of your PII if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be personally identified or contacted. We use non-personal information to evaluate and improve our Site and Services.

In order to create a User Account, access or use certain features of our Services, and complete transactions, you will have to provide certain Personally Identifiable Information. If you decide not to provide such information, you may not be able to become a Registered User or use or access certain parts of our Site or receive certain of our Services. For example, if you choose to provide the personal information required to create a User Account, but do not agree to post or upload your resume, we will not be able to analyze your information or make recommendations to you as to how to improve your visibility to our post-secondary and business partners that are recruiting/hiring. When using our Service, you may post, upload, transmit or create content, information and data not prohibited by our Terms of Use (“User Content”). We may collect such User Content and use it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Like many web-based services, we collect information when you browse our Site or use our Service through technological tools such as “cookies.” A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website. The cookie gives you a unique, random ID that enables our Site to recognize you on subsequent visits and remember your viewing preferences. Users are free to set their web browsers to prevent the acceptance of cookies, however, if you disable cookies, you may not be able to use or access certain Services on our Site.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

We may use personally identifiable information you provide us to:

  • Verify your right to access our Site or certain of our restricted Services

  • Customize our Services for you
  • Provide you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you
  • Share information with our authorized service providers and partners in order to provide you with the Services
  • Identify third party services and resources that may be of interest/benefit to you
  • Improve our products, offerings, and services

You may change or delete your PII by emailing us at admin@bhlue.com and including in the subject line “modify PII” or online through your User Account profile. We may, however, retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.

We may also combine your Personally Identifiable and non-personal information and aggregate it with information collected from other users to analyze and understand how our Service is used and to improve our products, offerings, and services. We may also provide aggregated information to our third party partners so that they may understand how people use their services and how our users, collectively, use our Site.

EMAIL COMMUNICATION

Bhlue may send occasional system messages to you including emails covering network or legal functions like resetting passwords, account creation and deletion confirmations, changes to our legal policies, or major functional updates or changes. We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Bhlue if your computer supports this type of program. Bhlue uses this confirmation to help us monitor receipt and improve our Service. Please note that if you do not want to review legal notices from us, such as notices regarding this Privacy Policy, you may change your account preferences by contacting us at admin@bhlue.com. However, those legal notices will still govern your use of the Site and Services, and you are responsible for reviewing such legal notices for changes.

Bhlue may also send you by email newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide that you no longer wish to receive any such communications from us, you may unsubscribe by using the “unsubscribe” feature included at the bottom of each such email communication.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Our Site may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like button and widgets, such as a “share” button. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Site, and may place cookies to enable the feature to function properly. These social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

THIRD PARTY SITES AND AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS

We engage certain third parties to perform functions and provide services to us. We may share your PII with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only to the extent such parties agree to abide by our Privacy Policy with respect to your PII.

Our Services may contain links to third-party websites. Bhlue has no control over the information collected from or about you by any third-party sites after you have left our Site. We are not responsible, and assume no liabilities, for the privacy policies and/or practices on such other websites. When linking to another site you should read the privacy policy governing that website. Our Privacy Policy only governs information collected on our Site.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA

We care about the security of your information. We use commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of information collected and maintained through the Service.
