Information collected through the Apps.
Depending on your personal device and App permission settings, when using the Apps, we may collect or have access to the following types of information:
- • Precise geolocation. When enabled, this may allow the Apps to collect real-time
information about the location of your device (GPS and network-based) to provide requested
location services and to serve you relevant offers or promotions.
- • Stored information and files. These may allow the Apps to read, modify, or delete
the contents of your USB storage including photographs, audio and video clips, personal
contacts, and address book information.
- • Camera. This may allow the Apps to access the camera to scan and input payment
- • WiFi connection information. When enabled, this may allow the Apps to view WiFi
- • Other. The Apps will send and receive data to and from the Internet, and may view
network connections, have full network access, control vibration of your device, or prevent
your device from sleeping.
We will store personal information we obtain through the Apps for no longer than is necessary to
achieve the purposes for which the information was collected, or as otherwise required or
permitted under applicable law.
Information obtained from other parties.
Information collected from job applicants.
Personal information may be collected from you if you apply to work for us, attend a recruitment event, or otherwise participate in the BBI recruitment process. Your personal information may be submitted through or processed by our service providers, who share your information with us. For example, if you choose to import personal information about yourself from other websites (such as LinkedIn) or use a chatbot to ask recruitment-related queries, send communications, or schedule interviews, your information may be processed by one or more of our service providers. We may also collect personal information from our service providers, including via referrals, recruitment agencies, and background screening providers.
As part of your application, you may provide sensitive personal information (for example, information relating to your gender, race or ethnic origin, physical or mental health, or criminal records). If you do provide sensitive personal information, you do so voluntarily and agree that such information may be used as described in this Policy.
Note that if your application is unsuccessful, BBI may still retain and use the information you provided to us for a reasonable period of time to handle issues that may arise in connection with your application, to contact you regarding other employment opportunities, and for BBI’s legitimate business purposes.

information may be used to analyze request patterns or usage patterns to enhance our or our
products and services.
Sharing of Personal Information
In the event of a business transaction, such as if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our
business or assets (e.g., further to a merger, reorganization, liquidation, or any other
business transaction, including negotiations of such transactions), we reserve the right to
disclose any information we obtain through the Services. You acknowledge that such transfers may

Analytics and Advertising
We may use third-party technology to collect and use data in connection with interest-based
advertising. These ad technology companies and advertisers may use, store, or access cookies,
web beacons, and other storage technologies to collect or receive information from the Services
and elsewhere on the Internet and use that information to provide advertising services to us,
including interest-based advertising or advertisements targeted to your interests delivered over
time and across online services and devices.
We may use certain web analytics services, for example, Google Analytics, to help us understand and analyze how visitors use the Services and to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. We have implemented Google Analytics Advertising Features such as remarketing with analytics, interest-based advertising, demographics and interests reporting, user segment analysis, and impression reporting. We and third-party vendors, such as Facebook and Google, may use first-party cookies or other first-party identifiers as well as third-party cookies or other third-party identifiers to deliver advertisements, create a profile of you, measure your interests, detect your demographics, detect your location, personalize content, or create an account for management of our customer loyalty program.
You may be able to opt out of certain interest-based advertising using the settings on your browser or mobile device. In addition, the following services or organizations offer tools that you can use to limit or opt out of interest-based advertising:
Your opt-out choice may apply only to the browser or device you are using when you opt out, so you should opt out on each of your browsers and devices if you want to disable interest-based advertising for those browsers and devices. If you opt out, you will still receive ads, but they may not be as relevant to you and your interests. Please note that we do not control how other parties manage their opt-out processes.
Certain features of the Services may permit you to initiate interactions between the Services and other parties, such as social networks (for example, to log in to a restaurant’s WiFi network or invite friends to log-in to Dine Rewards). Using these features may allow both BBI and the other service to access certain information about your use of our Services and theirs, including personal information. You should review the terms, policies, and settings of those third-party services to learn more about their data practices and/or adjust your settings.
Sweepstakes, Contests, and Other Promotions

Internet and digital storage are not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of
your information collected through the Services.
Communication preferences and marketing.
If you do not wish to receive marketing emails from us, you can opt out of future marketing emails by following the instructions provided in the marketing emails. Opting out of marketing emails will not affect our administrative or transactional emails to you (e.g., emails about your transactions, a job application, or policy changes) which we may send you, for example, to notify you of an issue with an order you have placed with us.
If you provide your phone number through the Services, we or our third party vendor may call or send you a transactional SMS message about the status of or issues with a recent transaction (e.g., an order you have placed with us) or job application. In addition to transactional SMS messages, we may send you marketing communications by SMS. However, we only send marketing SMS messages to those who have expressly opted-in to receiving marketing communications by SMS message. If you no longer wish to receive SMS messages from us, you can opt out of future SMS messages by replying to one of our SMS messages with the word “Stop.”
Additionally, you may request to stop receiving marketing communications by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you download and utilize our Apps, we may send you transactional push notifications about the status of or issues with a recent transaction (e.g., an order you have placed with us) or job application. In addition to transactional push notifications, we may send you marketing communications by push notification. However, we only send marketing push communications to those who have expressly opted-in to receiving marketing communications by push notification. If you no longer wish to receive push notifications from us, you can opt out of future push notifications by changing the settings on your mobile device.
Accessing, changing, and deleting your personal information.
If you are a registered user of the Services, you may review and change certain personal
information (e.g., email, password, phone number, payment information) at any time by accessing
your account online.
You may be able to enable or disable location tracking through the Apps by adjusting the permissions in your account or device settings. Be aware that if GPS precise location services are disabled, other means of establishing or estimating location (e.g., connecting to or proximity to WiFi, Bluetooth, beacons, or our networks) may persist. Enabling location tracking may enable an App to track your location in the background, which may decrease battery life.
You may be able to enable or disable certain features (e.g., allowing the Apps to read, modify, or delete the contents of your USB storage; take pictures and videos; view WiFi connection; send push notifications) by adjusting the permissions in your device settings.
If you want to terminate our ability to obtain information from you through the Apps, you may uninstall the Apps from your device.
