Boom collects information on our Users in various ways, such as, by your voluntary submissions, participation in services provided via the Service, from third parties with your consent, and through cookie and other tracking technology. Boom collects the following information:
“Personal Information” refers to personally identifiable information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, email, postal or mailing address, and possibly information relating to certain support or customer service issues. In many cases, we need this information to provide to you services that you may have requested.
Cellular Phone Numbers
By providing a cellular telephone number to us, you expressly consent, and authorize us or a third party on our behalf, to deliver autodialed or prerecorded telemarketing calls and/or text messages to the number you provide. You are not required to consent to these calls as a condition to purchasing any goods or services, but withholding your consent may prevent us from providing certain services to you. This consent encompasses all future autodialed or prerecorded telemarketing calls and text messages from us or a third party placing these calls on our behalf. You may revoke consent to receive text messages at any time by contacting Boom, including by texting STOP in response to any of our texts.
Submission of Reviews, Ratings, and Comments
We collect information that you voluntarily provide as part of our Service, including profile information, comments, questions, photographs, illustrations, fonts, designs, messages, posts, comments, responses, reviews, ratings, and other content or information you submit through the Service (“User Content”). Boom may in our sole discretion share your User Content with others such as your designs, illustrations, photographs, comments, and business reviews. You should not submit any information that you do not want shared with others through the Service. Once You have submitted User Content, we reserve the right to publish it in any medium to others.
We may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Service, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Website, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they click on. This information represents a generic overview of our users, including their collective viewing habits, and allows us and other third parties to modify information, promotions, offers, and/or discounts on products and services based on user traffic and behavior. We collect this information through the use of technologies such as ‘cookies’ and web beacons, which are discussed in greater detail below. We collect this information in order to help enhance the Service to make for a better visitor experience.
Third Party Information
We may supplement information you provide to us with information from other sources, such as information to validate or update your address, payment card, or other demographic and lifestyle information. We use this information to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect; to enable us to fulfill our products and services; to target our communications so that we can inform you of products, services, and offers that may be of interest; and for internal business analysis or other business purposes consistent with our mission.
We may use the services of third parties to collect and use anonymous information about your visits to and interactions with our Website through the use of technologies such as cookies to personalize advertisements for goods and services.

Other Tracking Technologies
Tracking technologies may record information such as Internet domain and host names; protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; the MAC address or other technical information from your mobile device; location information through GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, or similar technologies; and dates and times that our Service are accessed. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers, the computers that ‘serve up’ webpages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. The Service may also use technology called “tracer tags”. These may also be referred to as “Pixels”, “Clear GIFs” or “Web Beacons”. This technology allows us to understand which pages you visit on our Website and other ways you interact with our Service, such as purchases made through the Service. These tracer tags are used to help us to optimize and tailor our Service for you and other users of our Service. We may link the information we record using tracking technologies to Personal Information we collect.
Do Not Track
Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has not yet established universal standards for recognizable DNT signals and therefore, the Service and the Website do not recognize DNT.

Data Security, Integrity, and Access
The Personal Information you provide and we collect is stored within databases that we control directly or through our Administrative Service Providers. As we deem appropriate and as required by the applicable law, we use security measures appropriate for the sensitivity of the Personal Information and consistent with industry standards, including physical, organizational, and technological protections, such as firewalls, to protect your Personal Information. We also use industry standard encryption technology to protect credit card and password information.

Personal Information may only be accessed by persons within our organization, our Administrative Service Providers who require such access to provide you with the services indicated above, or any other party with which you have provided us the authorization to share such information.
We retain Personal Information that we collect only as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or to otherwise meet any legal requirements.
Your information may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province/territory, or country where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those where you live. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, please be aware that we transfer Personal Information within the United States and process and store it there. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, law enforcement officials, and national security authorities in the United States according to its laws.

Credit Card Information
We use third parties for secure credit card transaction processing, so any credit card information you submit for payment, if any, for the Service will be on a third-party website. Accordingly, we do not have access to your credit card information. You acknowledge that our third-party payment processors are solely responsible for the handling of your credit card information and that such information is subject to the privacy policies of the third-party payment processors. Accordingly, you agree to hold us harmless from any damages, losses, claims, or other liabilities associated with the use or your credit card information.
Third Party Websites and Links
Please note that you may have cookies placed on your computer by third-party websites that refer you to the Website. Although we do not share your Personal Information with these third-party websites unless you have authorized us to do so, they may be able to link certain non-personally identifiable information we transfer to them with Personal Information they previously collected from you. Please review the privacy policies of each website you visit to better understand their privacy practices. In addition, Boom would like to inform you that anytime you click on links (including advertising banners), which take you to third party websites, you will be subject to the third parties’ privacy policies.
