Collection and use of Personal Information
We collect Personal Information, such as your name, email address, and phone number, so we can send you requested product or service information, respond to your questions and concerns, and make you aware of product or service offerings.
Sharing of Personal Information
We will share your Personal Information with third parties as described in this Privacy Statement. We may also disclose your Personal Information to any third party with your prior consent.
PROVIDING THE SERVICES
Blend may transfer Personal Information to companies that help us provide our Services. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the provisions in this Privacy Statement.
COMPLIANCE WITH LEGAL OBLIGATIONS
We may also disclose your Personal Information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings, or similar legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
ANALYSIS OF ANONYMIZED DATA
We may anonymize your Personal Information so that you are not individually identified, and provide that information to our partners. We may also provide aggregate usage information to our partners, who may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use the Services, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal online experience. However, we never disclose aggregate usage information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally, as an individual. We may use third-party analytics services, such as Mixpanel, grow our business, improve and develop our Services, monitor and analyze use of our Services, aid our technical administration, increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our Services, and verify that users have provided the authorization we need to process user requests. These analytics services may collect and retain anonymized information about you.
We may communicate with you if you’ve provided us the means to do so. For example, if you’ve given us your email address, we may you about your use of our Services. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us make our communications with you more interesting and improve our Services. If you do not want to receive communications from us, please indicate your preference by contacting email@example.com.
User access and choice
If you wish to request access or deletion of your Personal Information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you the Services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received. If you have any questions about the security of your Personal Information, you can contact us at email@example.com.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.
We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve the Services, or to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality.

If you submit Personal Information to any of those websites, your information is governed by their privacy statements.
