1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
1.1 Information You Provide
BoxHero collects information from you when you choose to share it with us. This may include when you use our Services, register or create an online account with or through the Services, request a return, request information from us, sign up for newsletters, text messages, or our email list, use our returning and related services, enter into sweepstakes or other promotions, fill out a survey, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with or contact us. The information we may collect includes your name, email address, telephone number, pickup address(es), zip code, and/or photograph.
You may also provide us with certain information in connection with specific transactions:
If you make a payment to us (including those made on a recurring basis), we collect a credit/debit card number and related financial information (such as CVV, expiration date, and billing address), or other payment information (such as via PayPal or Apple Pay), depending on the form of payment.
We may also collect information about the packages you are requesting we return, including number, description, return label, third-party carrier, third-party retailer, size, weight and photographs. We do this to ensure safe and efficient returning when using the Services, as well as to help rectify any instances where packages may be missing, lost or damaged. Such information may also be used to provide an enhanced experience when using the Service, such as with customized offers or promotions based on the information we collect about your returns.
If you choose to refer a friend through the Services, we will ask for your friend's contact information. We will send a message to your friend inviting him or her to sign-up for the Services or visit the Site. We store this information to send the referral message(s) and track the success of our referral program.
You may also be given the option to link to your Facebook or other social media account through the Services. If you do, we may automatically receive certain information about you based on your registration and privacy settings on those third-party services.
