Our Commitment to Privacy
Collection of Information
In order to access the services we offer through the Website, you must first complete a registration form. During registration, you will be required to provide us with your contact information, such as your name and e-mail address. You will also be required to choose a user name and password. You may provide us with your login credentials for a variety of social media networks and other websites. To safeguard the confidentiality of your user name and password, DO NOT share this information with anyone.
As you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies, such as cookies or web beacons, to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. Information we collect automatically may include usage details, browser type and language, your operating system and pages viewed.
Use of Information
Most of the information collected during the registration process will be used to provide you with information that you request from us. For example, in order to provide our services, we will use the information from social media networks and other websites that you give us access to.
We use information that we collect from you to provide the Website, information that you request, notices, security alerts and customer service. For instance, if you contact us with a question or issue, we will use your contact information to answer your question or resolve your problem. We may also use your information in any other way we may describe when you provide the information and for any purpose with your consent.
We may contact you for marketing and promotional purposes by various means, including but not limited to regular mail, e-mail or telephone. You may opt out of receiving promotional or marketing communications by contacting us as provided below or clicking the unsubscribe link in the communication. We also perform statistical analyses from the demographic information you provide so as to improve our products or to gather marketing information.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We do not link IP addresses to personally identifiable information and we do not distribute or share IP information with any third parties.
We also gather information on your social media platforms via an API (Application Program Interface). We utilize API’s for YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Google Analytics. In order to calculate your platforms valuation, we require read, management, and sometimes write access to your platforms. Social Bluebook will never post on your behalf on any of these social media platforms, and all data gathered is updated on a monthly basis.
- To remove Social Bluebooks access to your YouTube channel, you can delete it from the “My Values” page, or via the Google security settings page at https://security.google.com/settings/security/permissions. Please note that this will not remove any data from your channel itself, only from Social Bluebook.
Sharing of Information
We will not sell your personal information to any outside parties. However, we may share your personal information with our employees, affiliates and subsidiaries and with agents and contractors of SBB who have agreed to appropriate confidentiality obligations for the purposes of assisting us to provide our services or responding to questions or comments. When an agent or contractor with whom we share your information acts solely on our behalf, SBB requires that party to follow our privacy practices. In addition, with your consent, we may share your information with third parties that provide products or services that you have requested and such third parties are not acting on our behalf in these instances. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third parties. We do not control these third parties’ policies regarding the collection or use of your information. If you have any questions about the privacy practices of a third party, you should contact them directly.
We also reserve the right to disclose your personal information to:
- comply with any court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request,
- enforce our terms,
- prevent fraudulent activity, other deceptive practices or otherwise to protect the rights, property, or safety of SBB, our customers or others, or
- a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of SBB’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by SBB about our Website users is among the assets transferred.
We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
Our Website may contain links to other sites for your convenience. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We do not control these third parties’ policies regarding the collection or use of your information. If you have any questions about the privacy practices of a third party, you should contact them directly.
SBB does not direct its Website to children under the age of thirteen. We require registered users of the site to be at least thirteen years of age. We do not knowingly collect any information from anyone under thirteen years of age. If we learn that a user is under thirteen years of age, we will promptly delete any personal information that the individual has provided to us. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided information to SBB through the Website, please let us know at email@example.com.
Your California Privacy Rights
Security and Protection
SBB uses commercially reasonable security measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.

You may also contact at firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
