Borrowed & Blue Privacy Policy

Welcome to Borrowed & Blue!

Borrowed & Blue, Inc. ( "Borrowed & Blue", "we", "us", or "our" ) is an online service that provides information, links, and resources about wedding vendors. To be clear, though, we are not a wedding vendor. Borrowed & Blue has prepared this Privacy Policy to describe to you our practices regarding the Personal Information (as defined below) we collect from users of our website, located at (the "Website" ) and online services ( "Services" ).

A Note to Users Outside of the United States.

If you are a non U.S. user of the Website or Services, by visiting the Website and/or providing us with information, you acknowledge and agree that your Personal Information may be processed for the purposes identified in the Privacy Policy. In addition, your Personal Information may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States, where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. By providing your information, you consent to such transfer.

So we are clear about the terminology we are using, when we use the phrase "Personal Information" in this Privacy Policy, we mean information that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing information. When we use the phrase "Anonymous Information” in this Privacy Policy, we mean information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. Anonymous Information does not enable identification of or contact with individual persons.


Our Services and Website are not directed to children and children are not eligible to use our Services. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 13 years of age, and no part of our Website or Services is designed to attract people under 13 years of age. If we later learn that a user is under 13 years of age, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information from our databases and to prevent the user from utilizing the Website and the Services.

How We Collect Information

Personal Information

In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Services to you and helps us learn more about the use of the Website and/or Services. We collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily at registration and in the course of your use of the Website and/or Services. To use certain features of the Website, we require you to create an "Account" by providing your name, email address, and a password. If you sign up for Premium Services, we require certain billing or payment related information so we can process transactions, though some of this information may be transmitted directly to our payment processor or other third party service provider. When you communicate with us by sending us an email, we will collect and store any information that is contained in your communications with us. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but this may limit the features of the Website or Services you are able to use.

When you create and submit content, blog posts, weddings, reviews, recommendations, comments, boards, or responses as part of our Services ("Posts"), other users will be able to see them. Please remember this and be thoughtful about what you make available. As your Posts are intended by you to be published on the Services, we do not consider them to be Personal Information under this Privacy Policy, even if they contain Personal Information. Certain Personal Information may be included as part of your Listing (e.g., your name and a profile photograph). We may enable functionality to allow your reviews to be anonymous, but you will still be responsible for such reviews. We do not consider Posts by other users about you to be your Personal Information. We don’t think that will bother you, because the very reason you’re here is to share (and, if you are a Vendor, to get your name out there). In addition, if you are a Vendor, we do not consider publicly available information about you (e.g., name of your business, address, phone number) to be Personal Information.

Anonymous Information

We collect the following types of Anonymous Information:

Information Collected by Our Servers.   As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. Our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including but not limited to your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol ( "IP" ) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit, clickstream data and referring/exit pages. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Website, track users’ movements around the Website, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Website or the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.

Cookies.   Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Website. This type of information is collected to make the Website more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept cookies from our Service for any of the purposes described above, then you can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. Consult your browser’s technical information. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Services or all functionality of the Services.

Collection of Information by Advertisers.   We may use third parties to serve ads on the Website. Certain third parties may automatically collect information about your visits to this and other websites, your IP address, your ISP, the browser you use to visit our Website (but not your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number). They do this by using Cookies or other technologies. Information collected may be used, among other things, to deliver advertising targeted to your interests and to better understand the usage and visitation of our Website and the other sites tracked by these third parties. This policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, Cookies or pixel tags in third party ads, and we encourage you to check the privacy policies of advertisers and/or ad services to learn about their use of Cookies and other technologies. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

Disclosure – Third Party Cookies.   We may use a third party tracking service such as Google Analytics to track and analyze Anonymous Information from users of our Website. Such third parties may use Cookies to help track user behavior. The use of these Cookies by third parties is not covered by our Privacy Policy. We do not have access or control over these Cookies. For example, Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Website, rather than your name or other personally identifying information. We do not combine the information generated through the use of Google Analytics with your personal information. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent Cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Website, the Cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.

How We Use Information

How We Disclose Information

Personal Information

Your Posts (and any accompanying profile information) are disclosed on the Website, even though they may contain Personal Information. Please be thoughtful about the Posts you make on or to the Services.

We disclose certain Personal Information:

  • To third party vendors who help us provide the Services or the Website;
  • To third parties to whom you ask us to send Personal Information, including to other Users with whom you are interacting;
  • To a parent company, any subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (collectively, "Affiliates"), in which case we will require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy;
  • In connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition or dissolution, transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture, or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets. In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, Personal Information may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company acquires our company, business, or assets, that company will possess the Personal Information collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy
  • If we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) resolve disputes, investigate problems, or enforce our Terms of Use; (b) comply with relevant laws or to respond to requests from law enforcement or other government officials relating to investigations or alleged illegal activity, in which case we can (and you authorize us to) disclose Personal Information without subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (c) protect and defend our rights or property or the rights and property of you or third parties.

In addition, some of our Services may enable you to post content to SNSs (e.g., Facebook or Twitter). If you choose to do this, we will provide information to such SNSs in accordance with your elections. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for your use of those websites and that it is your responsibility to review the terms of use and privacy policy of the third party provider of such SNSs. We will not be responsible or liable for: (i) the availability or accuracy of such SNSs; (ii) the content, products or services on or availability of such SNSs; or (iii) your use of any such SNSs.

Anonymous Information

We reserve the right to disclose Anonymous Information publicly without restriction.

Controlling Your Information

You can review and/or change certain of your Personal Information by logging into the Website and accessing your Account. You authorize us to use and disclose any new or modified information that you provide in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and you agree that we are under no obligation to delete or modify information that you have previously chosen to provide us.

Certain information is necessary in order for us to provide the Website or Services; therefore, if you delete such necessary information you will not be able to use the Website or Services. Please note that even though you may request the deletion of your Personal Information by us, we may be required (by law or otherwise, such as to prevent fraud, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, or enforce our Terms of Use) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time) in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements. When we delete Personal Information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives.

As noted above, we do not consider Posts by other users about you to be your Personal Information and you cannot control this information or request its removal or deletion. However, please contact us if you think it violates our Terms of Use.
