Effective date: January 1, 2020

This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") is provided by Balboa Digital LLC ("Balboa Digital," "we," "us," or "our") to inform interested parties who happen to visit our website at https://www.balboadigital.com/ to know what information is collected, how it's collected, and how we protect it, use it, and share it as applicable. It also describes choices available to Consumers regarding protecting your information and how to opt-out of Internet-based advertising services. For our purposes, "Consumer" refers to an individual who visits and interacts with our website, with a third party website or application, such as a website operated by a Publisher (as further defined below) on which the individual indicated an interest in a particular product or service and provided contact information in response to a form or questionnaire, as well as browsed or otherwise interacted within such sites, and that information was provided to us in order to provide Contact Center Services ("Services") on behalf of our Client or Partner ("Client").

WHAT WE DO

Balboa Digital provides 3rd party Services for many Clients. For these Clients, Balboa Digital acts in the role of a contracted agent. In this role, and using our Client's branded name, our primary Services are (1) take inbound phone calls and messages to support sales or customer support for the Client, and (2) make outbound phone calls or send messages in response to Client product or service inquiries where the Consumer has provided expressed consent for our Client, or us as the Client's agent, to make a contact attempts via human or automated means.

OUR RELATIONSHIP TO CONSUMERS

BALBOA DIGITAL PROVIDES ITS WEBSITE TO OUR CLIENTS AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR CONSUMER USE. WE HAVE NO DIRECT RELATIONSHIP, INCLUDING ANY ESTABLISHED BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP, WITH CONSUMERS. THIS CONSUMER PRIVACY POLICY APPLIES ONLY TO OUR SERVICES WHICH ENGAGE WITH CONSUMERS ON BEHALF OF OUR CLIENTS. BALBOA DIGITAL DOES NOT CONTROL THE PRIVACY POLICIES OF OTHER WEBSITES OR PARTIES CONSUMERS MAY INTERACT WITH, INCLUDING THOSE OF OUR CLIENTS. WE ENCOURAGE CONSUMERS, AND WE EXPECT OUR CLIENTS TO ENCOURAGE CONSUMERS, TO READ ALL APPLICABLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, POLICIES AND/OR STATEMENTS OF THE WEBSITES CONSUMERS VISIT, ESPECIALLY THOSE WEBSITES THAT COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM CONSUMERS ("CONSUMER PI").

Our collection, processing, use, and storage of Consumer PI is dependent upon our Clients' requirements for our Services. Our Services agreement with each Client determines the use of Consumer PI, and they must comply with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations. These laws and regulations include, and are not limited to, expressed consent to receive a contact, and the manner of contact (e.g. Phone, SMS, email, social message, etc.) from the Client, or Client's agent. To the extent required by law, our Clients' Consumer disclosures, Terms of Use or Privacy Policy must provide detailed information about what information is gathered, how it is used, and how you can interact or remove this information from the Client's systems, including the Client's agent systems. Each Client is solely responsible for ensuring that they have permission from Consumers to use any Consumer PI (for example, name, email, phone, address) in connection with our Services.

HOW WE COLLECT, STORE AND USE YOUR INFORMATION

There a few sources of Consumer PI which may be received, stored or transmitted by our systems:
  1. Data that is posted to Balboa Digital by a Client in order for us to perform Services.
  2. Data that is volunteered by you in a phone call or message.
