What About Cookies?
Does Blink Share Your Personal Information?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling our customers’ personal information to others.

In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the event Blink or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
