This section describes how Bluebeam shares Your Information with our Service Partners and other third parties.
We use Service Partners to perform supporting functions for the various Services we offer, such as payment processing, cloud storage providers, analytics providers, product training and online learning opportunities, job postings and applicant tracking, and customer research and surveys. Our Service Partners are NOT permitted to use the information collected from you for any purpose other than performing support functions for Bluebeam. In addition, we require that all Service Providers use reasonable safeguards to protect the limited set of your information that they may have access to.
At times we may make certain portions of Your Information available to our authorized resellers and distributors to help Bluebeam provide our Services to you. For example, if you initiate a license of a Bluebeam software product through an authorized reseller, you authorize Bluebeam and that reseller to exchange information you provide during the license and registration process. We allow authorized resellers and distributors to access information regarding the licenses that they sold, which may include some or all of your information if you are a contact under an applicable license.
We will share Your Information as may be required by an applicable Customer Agreement.

Information collected by third parties is governed by their privacy policies and practices. We recommend you read and become familiar with the privacy policies of all parties with which you interact.
In all other circumstances, if we disclose any information to a third party it will be in the form of aggregated statistical data that does not identify any user individually. This anonymous information may include, for example, the purchasing patterns, trends, preferences and other collective characteristics of our users in general.
Bluebeam’s Services, which allow you to collaborate with other users of our Services around the globe, require by their nature that data flow from the European Union (“EU”) (and other countries) to the United States (“US”) and back. To ensure that EU personal information is adequately protected when transferred outside of the EU, the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and, as of May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) mandates that such transfers take place using certain legal mechanisms as described here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu_en.
When transferring data from the EU and other countries, Bluebeam relies upon a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts with our users and the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses for our EU based users.
Bluebeam is subject to oversight by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
