Privacy Policy

Blue Mesa Consulting understands how important your privacy is to you, and we want you to know it is also important to us. We feel a critical part of demonstrating that importance is providing you with information to give you a full understanding of how we use the data we collect online about you and your use of our websites.  If any element of the Privacy Policy is unacceptable to you, please refrain from visiting our websites.

The Information We Collect

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:

(a) information about any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our goods or services;

(b) information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us and/or subscribing to our website services and/or email notifications and/or document downloads.

(c) information about your visits to and use of this website;

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information that can be used to personally identify you, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, user IDs and passwords, online identifiers, device information, billing and transaction information, credit card or other financial information, contact preferences, and similar information.

We may collect information about your computer and your visits to this website such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views. We may use this information in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability, and for marketing purposes.

We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We may send a cookie which may be stored on by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability and for marketing purposes. We may also use that information to recognize your computer when you visit our website, and to personalize our website for you. Our advertisers may also send you cookies.

We may use cookies to record non-personal information such as website activity, date and time of visit, and domain type. We may use this information for retargeting purposes.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including those administered by Blue Mesa Consulting.

Using Your Personal Data

Personal data submitted on this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy or in relevant parts of the website.

Blue Mesa Consulting may collect and/or log your Internet Protocol address, Internet domain name, the web browser and operating system used to access Blue Mesa Consulting’s websites or other interactions (e.g., customer service inquiries, user conferences, etc.), the files visited, the time spent in each file, and the time and date of each visit or clickstream data. Blue Mesa Consulting may collect this information automatically as you browse via the use of log files and web beacons to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the Blue Mesa Consulting websites. Blue Mesa Consulting and its partners may use cookies or similar technologies to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level, but if you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions on our website or service.

In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may use your personal information to:

(a) improve your browsing experience by personalizing the website;

(b) send information (other than marketing communications) to you which we think may be of interest to you by post or by email or similar technology;

(c) send to you marketing communications relating to our business or the businesses of carefully-selected third parties which we think may be of interest to you by post or by email or similar technology.

(d) provide other companies with statistical information about our users

Other Disclosures

In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may disclose information about you:

(a) to the extent that we are required to do so by law;

(b) in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;

(c) in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).

The website contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of third party websites.

How We Protect Your Information

We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.

We will store all the personal information you provide on our servers. We may also use the services of popular  third party applications including (but not limited to) Google Analytics.  For information on their privacy policies, please contact those service providers.

Marketing Choices, Right to Access Your Personal Information, and Out Retention

Your decision to provide the personal information that we may request from time to time is voluntary. However, if you do not provide the personal information requested, you may not be able to proceed with the activity or receive the benefit for which the personal information is being requested. You can unsubscribe or choose not to receive promotional materials from Blue Mesa Consulting by following the instructions in the email or other communication you receive or by notifying us via the appropriate method(s) described below. It may take a reasonable period of time to process your request, but no longer than 10 business days for email promotions. In countries where Blue Mesa Consulting is required to do so by law, Blue Mesa Consulting will offer you the opportunity to provide opt-in consent before promotional materials are sent, or promotional calls are made, to you. This will not apply to service communications that are considered.

Your Access to Your Personal Information. Blue Mesa Consulting strives to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes, and policies designed to maintain data integrity. We will provide you with reasonable access to your personal information in accordance with relevant laws, including by making reasonable efforts to provide you with online access and the opportunity to update your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting access or making changes to your personal information. Upon request, Blue Mesa Consulting will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. To request access, correction, or deletion or transfer of your personal information, follow the applicable instructions below. While we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request, we also reserve the right to reject such requests or to impose certain restrictions and requirements on such requests, if required or permitted by applicable law. We will respond to your request within a reasonable time frame.

Our Retention of Your Information. We will retain your personal information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you access to Blue Mesa Consulting websites or other service offerings. If you wish to cancel your account, or request that we no longer use your personal information, contact us via the applicable methods provided below. Even after we cancel your account or cease using your personal information, we may still retain, use, and disclose your information as necessary to comply with our legal, regulatory, ethical, or document retention obligations, and any request to delete your personal information is subject to these obligations and restrictions.
