Thanks for using BlockDrive! Here we describe how we collect, use and handle your information when you use our websites, software and services (“Services“).
What & Why
We collect and use the following information to provide, improve and protect our Services:
Account. We collect, and associate with your account, information like your name, email address, phone number, payment info, physical address, and account activity. Some of our services let you access your accounts and your information with other service providers.
Services. Our Services are designed to make it simple for you to store Your Stuff, collaborate with others, and work across multiple devices. To make that possible, we store, process, and transmit Your Stuff—like files, messages, comments, and photos—as well as information related to it. This related information can be things like your profile information that makes it easier to collaborate and share Your Stuff with others. Our Services provide you with different options for sharing Your Stuff.
You may choose to give us access to your contacts to make it easy for you to do things like share and collaborate on Your Stuff, send messages, and invite others to use the Services. If you do, we’ll store those contacts on our servers for you to use.
Usage. We collect information related to how you use the Services, including actions you take in your account (like sharing, editing, viewing, and moving files or folders). This helps us provide you with features like the “Events” page and version history.
We also collect information from and about the devices you use to access the Services. This includes things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to the Services.
Cookies and other technologies. We use technologies like cookies and pixel tags to provide, improve, protect and promote our Services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services.
We may share information as discussed below, but we won’t sell it to advertisers or other third parties.
Other users. Our Services display information like your name, profile picture, and email address to other users in places like your user profile and sharing notifications. When you register your BlockDrive account with an email address on a domain owned by your employer or organization, we may help collaborators find you and your team by making some of your basic information—like your name, team name, profile picture, and email address—visible to other users on the same domain. This helps us show you teams you can join, and helps other users share files and folders with you.
Certain features let you make additional information available to others.
Other applications. You can also give third parties access to your information and account – for example, via BlockDrive APIs. Just remember that their use of your information will be governed by their privacy policies and terms.
BlockDrive Team Admins. If you are a user of a BlockDrive team, your administrator may have the ability to access and control your BlockDrive team account. Please refer to your organization’s internal policies if you have questions about this. If you are not a BlockDrive team user but interact with a BlockDrive team user (by, for example, joining a shared folder or accessing stuff shared by that user), members of that organization may be able to view the name, email address, profile picture, and IP address that was associated with your account at the time of that interaction.
Law & Order. We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with the law; (b) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of BlockDrive or our users; or (d) protect BlockDrive’s property rights.
Stewardship of your data is critical to us and a responsibility that we embrace. We believe that our users’ data should receive the same legal protections regardless of whether it’s stored on our services or on their home computer’s hard drive. We’ll abide by the following Government Request Principles when receiving, scrutinizing and responding to government requests (including national security requests) for our users’ data:
- Be transparent,
- Fight blanket requests,
- Protect all users and
- Provide trusted services.
Security. We have a team dedicated to keeping your information secure and testing for vulnerabilities. We also continue to work on features to keep your information safe in addition to things like two-factor authentication, encryption of files at rest, and alerts when new devices and apps are linked to your account.
Retention. We’ll retain information you store on our Services for as long as we need it to provide you the Services. If you delete your account, we’ll also delete this information. But please note: (1) there might be some latency in deleting this information from our servers and back-up storage; and (2) we may retain this information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements. You can access your personal information by logging into your BlockDrive account.
Around the world. To provide you with the Services, we may store, process and transmit information in the United States and locations around the world – including those outside your country. Information may also be stored locally on the devices you use to access the Services.
EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield. When transferring data from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland, BlockDrive relies upon a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts with our users. BlockDrive complies with the EU-U.S. and Swiss–U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland to the United States.
If we are involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that deal. We will notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.
Have questions or concerns about BlockDrive, our Services and privacy? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On rare occasions, you might be due a refund or have a credit on your account, or you might need to resolve a declined payment.
Cancellations / Refunds
If you cancel your billing account and have unused funds in your account, you might be eligible for a refund.
Keep in mind that we don’t offer refunds in these cases:
- You have money left over in your billing account from a promotional code.
- Your billing account isn’t disabled.
- You have an outstanding balance. (If you’re not sure whether this is the case, select a billing account and then click History to see if there’s an outstanding balance in your billing account.)
For accounts you can start the refund process by submitting a refund request to email@example.com. Please include the following information:
- The reason for the refund/cancellation of your account.
- The amount of the refund you’re requesting.
- The date you cancelled your account or deleted your project.
Note: If your refund request is processed, your refund will be credited back to the credit card or bank account associated with the billing account.
Viewing credits and adjustments
On rare occasions, BlockDrive might modify your account balance. This is called an adjustment. Most of the time, adjustments come in the form of credits. Credits reduce your account balance.
To view adjustments applied to your account:
- Sign in to the BlockDrive Platform Console
- Open the console left side menu and select Billing.
- If you have more than one billing account, select Go to linked billing accountto manage the current project’s billing. To locate a different billing account, select Manage billing accounts.
- If you have any credits, under Credits, for each credit you’ll see the Promotion ID, Expiresdate, the total Promotion Value, and the Amount Remaining.
Resolving declined payments
Sometimes payments are declined, and when they are, we might stop running your services until your payment can be processed. Fortunately, you can get your services running again in just a few steps.
- Find out the reason for the decline.You can view declined payment information for your billing account on the billing account History In the billing history, you can see the date of the decline, the amount, and if your bank shared it with us, the reason for the decline. (Keep in mind that BlockDrive doesn’t decline payments; your bank or credit card institution does.)
- Contact your bank or credit card company.If you can’t figure out why your payment was declined or if you can’t solve the issue, contact your bank or credit card company. Give them the date and amount of the declined payment, and they should be able to tell you what the problem is and help you fix it.
- Re-enable your form of payment.After you’ve contacted your bank and made sure that the form of payment will work, here’s how to re-enable it:
- Go to the BlockDrive Platform Console.
- Open the console left side menu and select Billing.
- If you have more than one billing account, select Go to linked billing accountto manage the current project’s billing. To locate a different billing account, select Manage billing accounts.
- Click Payment method.
- Find the form of payment and check to make sure that all the details are correct for this form of payment.
- Below the information for the form of payment, click Re-enable form of payment.
It’s important to note the following:
- Re-enabling your form of payment will automatically trigger a charge for your outstanding balance. It may take a few hours to process the payment. If the payment isn’t successful within one business day after you re-enabled your form of payment, reactivate your account by making a manual payment or adding a new payment method.
- Help keep your services running by entering a backup credit card. We’ll charge your backup card only if your primary form of payment is declined.
- If your billing account remains invalid for a protracted period, some resources might be removed from the projects associated with your account.
