  • Responding to information requests: We use your Personal Information to respond to requests you submit for information about our Service and other inquiries, such as employment opportunities or for press inquiries. We use this information because we have a legitimate business interest in understanding customer/potential customer feedback and in responding to your communications in a consistent way.
  • Processing billing and payments: If you have been designated by your organization as being a contact for billing or payment purposes, we will use your Personal Information to process your organization’s order, issue invoices to your organization and take payment from, or make payment to, you (including refunds if applicable).

You will have the choice to opt in or opt out of receiving such communications by indicating your choice on CLEAN’s Privacy Center. You will also be given the opportunity on every e-communication that we send you to indicate that you no longer wish to receive our direct marketing material. If we have collected your Personal Information through our website or through other channels (such as if you have exchanged contact information with one of our Sales representatives or business partners), and we have a permission to do so, we will use your Personal Information to inform you about other services and products that might be of interest to you and to gather feedback from you on our website and our Service.
  • Reviews and feedback. If you are a CLEAN user and you contact Bigbelly to provide feedback or reviews of your experience, we will use your Personal Information (as well as your feedback/review) to understand and respond to customer feedback.

What legal basis we have for processing your Personal Data.
We will only process your Personal Information where we have a legal basis to do so, which will depend on the reasons we have collected and why need to use your Personal Information.

  • Performance of a contract

If you, your employer or a third party decide to purchase our Service, we will need to process your Personal Information so we can perform our contractual obligation of providing the Service to you.

  • Legitimate Interests

We use your Personal Information for several reasons, including our legitimate business interests in: understanding customer feedback, consistently responding to your communications, understanding how our website is accessed, used and any problems that users have, as well as promoting our products and services.

  • Consent

We will use your Personal Information when you provide explicit consent to the processing of that information for one or more specified purposes.

How we store your Personal Data
We store your Personal Information on cloud servers located in the United States. In addition, we use suppliers in the United States that support the provision of our Service. Your Personal Information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers, including to countries outside of the location(s) of your business, such as the United States and countries within Europe, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region. Where such transfers of your Personal Information are made they will be made in accordance with applicable law.
We will not retain your Personal Information for longer than is necessary to fulfill the purpose it is being processed for. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of your Personal Information, the purposes for which we process it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.
Generally, that means we will keep your Personal Information for as long as you have a relationship with us or, if you do not have a relationship with us beyond this communication, for a reasonable length of time that lets us understand how people use our website, any technical issues they have, and how people use our Service and the impact of any marketing offers that we make.
When we no longer need your Personal Information, we will securely delete or destroy it. We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your Personal Information, and to protect it against accidental loss, destruction or damage. The Personal Data you provide to us is protected using Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology. SSL is the industry standard method of encrypting personal information and credit card details so that they can be securely transferred over the Internet.

How we protect the security of your Personal Data
We have implemented and currently maintain an effective written information security program that includes administrative, technical, and physical safeguards and other security measures necessary to (a) ensure the security, confidentiality, and integrity of your Personal Information; (b) protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security, confidentiality, and integrity of your Personal Information; (c) protect against unauthorized access to, destruction, modification, disclosure or use of your Personal Information; and (d) detect and respond to security incidents involving your Personal Information. We permit persons working for us to access and use your Personal Information only to serve our legitimate business and our customers’ service needs, in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Privacy Policy, we may disclose your Personal Information (1) in response to a subpoena, search warrant, court order, exchange rule, other legal process or where we are otherwise required to do so in accordance with locally applicable law and where applicable, our internal policy on access by government or regulatory authorities; and (2) in our sole discretion if we believe such disclosure is appropriate in connection with an official government or regulatory investigation, or under exigent circumstances in response to a perceived significant threat to a person’s health or property.
Who we transfer and disclose your personal data to.
We share your Personal Information in order to carry out the activities specified in this Privacy Policy.

  • Service Providers. We use technical service providers which may operate the technical infrastructure that we need to provide the Service.
  • Law Enforcement and Protection Authorities. We will share your Personal Information when we in good faith believe it is necessary for us to do so in order to comply with a legal obligation under applicable law, or respond to valid legal process, such as a search warrant, a court order, or a subpoena. We also will also share your Personal Information where we in good faith believe that it is necessary for the purpose of our own, or a third party’s legitimate interest relating to national security, law enforcement, litigation, criminal investigation, protecting the safety of any person, or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm, provided that we deem that such interest is not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms requiring the protection of your Personal Information.
  • Purchasers of our business. We will share your Personal Information in those cases where we sell or negotiate to sell our business to a buyer or prospective buyer. In this situation, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of your Personal Information and give you notice before your personal data is transferred to the buyer or becomes subject to a different Privacy Policy.

We also share your Personal Information globally in order to carry out these activities, including to third parties located in countries other than your home country. Your Personal Information, therefore, may be subject to privacy laws that are different from those in your country of residence.

What rights you have regarding the use of your Personal Information.
You may be aware that a new European Union law, called the General Data Protection Regulation or ‘GDPR’ gives certain rights to individuals in relation to their Personal Information. Accordingly, we have implemented additional transparency and access controls to help users take advantage of those rights. As available and except as limited under applicable law, the following rights are afforded regarding the use of your Personal Information, including the right to:

  • Request information about your Personal Information: You may request confirmation about whether we hold Personal Information about you, and, if so, what that information is, why we are using it, and who we have shared the information with.
  • Access your Personal Information: You may request access to your Personal Information that we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Rectification of Personal Information: You may request that we amend or update your Personal Information where it is inaccurate or incomplete.
  • Erasure of Personal Information: You may request that we delete or remove Personal Information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing Personal Information: You may object to processing of your Personal Information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your Personal Information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Object to processing Personal Information based on automated decision-making: You may object to the processing of your Personal Information, including profiling, that is not to be subject of any automated decision-making by us using your Personal Information or profiling of you.
  • Restrict/suspend processing of personal data: You may request that we temporarily or permanently stop processing all or some of your Personal Information.
  • Data portability: You may request transfer of your Personal Information in an electronic and structured form to you or to another party. This enables you to take your data from us in an electronically useable format and to be able to transfer your Personal Inforamtion to another party in an electronically useable format.
  • Withdraw consent: In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your Personal Information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your Personal Information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

These rights are subject to restrictions under European data protection law and, subject to the exemptions in that law, may only apply to certain types of information or processing. Additionally, these rights may not be available if there are outstanding contracts between us, if we are required by law to keep the information or if the information is relevant to a legal dispute.
If you want to exercise any of these rights, then please contact us at the following link: Bigbelly Data Request.
