Information We Collect
We currently collect the following types of Personal Data:
- When you register for the Service:
- your name
- your email address
- if you register through a social media service such as Facebook, the additional data which you permit the social media service to send to us

- your email address
- information about the product you are registering (such as serial number, model number and date of purchase)
- Other data that you specifically provide to us, such as by contacting Customer Support
We also collect various information about how our Service is used (such as which models were downloaded or how many times an assembly step was replayed), and store that information in connection with a pseudonymous identifier. We may aggregate this data with similar data from other users in order to help us identify trends and improve the Service. We may also share such aggregate data, without connection to your Personal Data, either publicly or with our partners, affiliates or licensees outside of BILT.
BILT will retain Personal Data for as long as needed to provide the Services to you and our customers. BILT will also retain personal data as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
How We Use the Information
We use the Personal Data and Aggregate Data collected:
- To provide services you request, such as sending product registration information to product providers, keeping a record of your product registrations or tracking warranty information;
- To provide you updates on BILT, updates, upgrades, patches, enhancements, and to receive and provide feedback;
- To analyze usage and trends, and generally to improve our Services; and
- To provide additional information on services and product offerings to you
- To provide your information to manufacturers who may wish to contact you to provide responses to your feedback or for marketing manufacturers’ purposes;
- To keep you up to date on the latest product announcements on product files you have downloaded, product updates, special offers, and other information;
- To conduct questionnaires and surveys in order to provide better products and services to our customers and end users. Your completion of any questionnaire or survey is completely voluntary and we will offer an “Opt-out” choice to users for any surveys or questionnaires.
Further, if you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email or other messaging means, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION RECEIVED FROM THE EU and Switzerland
BILT adheres to the privacy principles described in this Policy with respect to the Personal Data we collect from EU and Swiss data subjects, which includes data used to establish user accounts, process assembly file delivery, process product registrations and otherwise provide the Services.
Legal basis for processing personal information
For the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using Personal Data will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific purpose for which we collected or requested it.
However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where:
- we have your consent to do so;
- we need the personal information to provide a service or to perform a contract or agreement with you; or
- where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.
In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect or use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “Changes and Contact” heading below.
Your Personal Data may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective).
Specifically, our website servers are located in the United States and our third-party service providers and affiliates operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in any of these countries.
- European Commission adequacy decisions, which acknowledge that the non-EEA countries listed here have national laws that protect personal information to a substantially similar standard required by European Union law;
- the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, which require non-EEA recipients of personal information to continue to protect the personal information they receive to the standard required by European Union law; or
- other lawful data transfer mechanisms or derogations from data transfer restrictions.
Further details can be provided upon request. Please see contact information below.
Upon request, we will provide you with access to the personal information that we hold about you. You may also may correct, amend, or delete the personal information we hold about you. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data transferred to the United States, should direct their query to email@example.com. If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
We will provide an individual opt-out or opt-in choice before we share your data with third parties other than our agents, or before we use it for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized. To request to limit the use and disclosure of your personal information, please submit a written request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
BILT remains responsible and liable under if third-party agents that it engages to process the personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless BILT proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
BILT commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information transferred to the United States. European Union and Swiss individuals with Personal Data inquiries or complaints should contact BILT by email at email@example.com or via post at:

How We Share Information
BILT will not sell or rent your Personal Data to any third party without your consent.
We may transfer your Personal Data to third parties in the following situations:
- When you have given us consent to do so;
- To our subsidiaries, affiliated legal entities and service providers around the world based on necessary data processing agreements, who may only use the data to provide the Service or related information and updates to you;
- In response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process by disclosing your data and other related information, if necessary or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; or
Information for EU and UK Data Subjects Related to Data Collected through our Service
- BILT is considered a controller or processor. BILT uses sub-processors. BILT has entered into appropriate Data Processing Addendums or Agreements with our sub-processors controlling protection of your personal data. We may transfer Personal Data to third party processor companies (i.e. cloud data and server services) that help us provide our service. Such third party processors are located in, and the transfers are limited to, the United States or countries in the European Union and these processors are controlled by data processing agreements providing the same protections of your personal data. BILT uses Amazon Web Services to deliver the Service and for the storage of Personal Data.
- For such onward transfers to third parties, BILT shall remain liable in the event our sub-processors process Personal Data in a manner inconsistent with this Policy, unless the sub-processor proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to any liability or damage.
We use a variety of security measures, including firewalls, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, encryption and authentication tools, to help protect your information. We protect your Personal Data with the same or better security measures than we protect our company data.
Cookies and Automated Tools; Do Not Track
The Service does not contain cookies allowing BILT or third parties to track your activities over time across websites, and therefore, does not contain functionality to respond to ‘do not track’ or similar requests.
Opt Out Preferences
When you register for an account, we may use your name and email address to send periodic emails to you of both promotional and transactional in nature. Out of respect for your privacy, you may choose to stop receiving promotional emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
