A. Special Offers and Updates. By enrolling as a Consultant, registering as Customer, or making a purchase or other inquiry through the Website, you consent to receive periodic email and other communications from us and from Blen Consultants. For example, Blen sends all new Consultants and Customers a welcoming email to verify password, username, and acceptance of the Consultant Agreement or Customer Agreement. All Consultants and Customers will occasionally receive information on products, special deals, and a newsletter. Customers who have not registered with Blen and who grant permission will also receive occasional information on products, special deals, and the like.
B. Service Announcements. On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send Consultants and/or Customers an email. Generally, Consultants may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
C. Consultant and Customer Service. Blen communicates with Consultants and Customers via email, regular mail and telephone on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their Blen business. Blen communicates with other Customers with respect to products purchased by such Customers from Blen. Such communications may be by email, regular mail, or telephone.

Text Messages are distributed via third party mobile network providers and, therefore, we cannot control certain factors relating to message delivery or guarantee availability or performance of this service, including liability for transmission delays or message failures. To receive help with Text Messages, you can either text the word “Help” to (832) 880-7590 or call (281) 651-4353 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may unsubscribe from receiving Blen Text Messages any time by texting the word “STOP” to (832) 880-7590 from your device. You may also choose not to receive Text Messages by emailing email@example.com and specifying that this is your preference.
From time to time you may be asked to provide your mobile phone number to Blen in connection with specific text messaging programs, which is in addition to the general Blen marketing text messaging program. That text messaging program may have additional or different terms and conditions from those set forth above, which will be presented you at the time that you opt-in to receive those text messages. In general, in order to stop receiving text messages from a specific Blen text messaging program, you can text STOP to the five digit short code for the text messaging program from which you no longer wish to receive message (i.e., the five digit number from which its text messages are being sent). You will then receive confirmation of your opt-out of that text messaging program. This will only opt you out of the specific text messaging program associated with that five digit short code. You will remain opted in to any other Blen text messaging programs that you have signed up for.
C. Security of Personal Information. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of Personal Information in our custody and control. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology in order to protect the security of our Websites. However, even with the best technology, no website is 100% secure. We will take reasonable measures which we believe are appropriate to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction, and, where possible, will ask that any third parties to whom we may transfer such information to take comparable steps to protect that security.
D. Secure Shopping. When you place orders on our Websites, all of your order information, including your card number and delivery address, is transmitted through the Internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology causes your browser to encrypt your order information before transmitting it to our secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent someone other than operators of our Websites from capturing and viewing your Personal Information. Since any order information you provide to us on our Websites will be transmitted using a secure connection, if your Web browser cannot support this level of security, you will not be able to order products through our Websites. The most recent versions of Google Chrome, Netscape Navigator, Apple Safari, and Microsoft Internet Explorer can support a secure connection and can be downloaded for free from the Google, Netscape, Apple, or Microsoft website respectively.
E. Passwords. To provide you with an increased level of security, online access to your Personal Information is protected with a password you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. Blen will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (including unsolicited correspondence such as letters, phone calls or e-mail messages).
F. Lost or Stolen Information. You must promptly notify us if your credit, banking, other financial information, user name or password is lost, stolen or used without permission. In such an event, we will remove that credit card number, bank account information, other financial institution information, user name or password from your account.
I. Making Changes to Your Personal Information. Consultants and Customers may update their personal information as necessary by logging into their Blen online Back Offices or Customer Accounts, which allows them to access and edit their registration account information. In addition, Consultants and Preferred Customers may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to update their profiles.
J. Information Sharing Disclosure Requests. If you are a California resident, you have the right to request one Notice of Information-Sharing Disclosure per year which will identify the third parties with whom Blen or any of our affiliates has shared the Personal Information we have collected from you. You may request the Notice of Information-Sharing Disclosure by writing to us at. Blen, Attn: Privacy Manager, 5402 Dunsmore Spring Lane, Spring, Texas 77389, or by e-mailing us at email@example.com We will respond to your request for a Notice of Information-Sharing Disclosure within 30 days.
