Who are we?

At Blockman we provide web application software and apps for apartment block management. Our service allows property agents to manage the accounts and administration of apartment blocks or similar property developments.

As used in this Privacy Policy, “Blockman”,  “us”  and “we” refers to Topfloor Systems Limited (our registered company name).

We respect the privacy rights of our users, recognise the importance of protecting you personal information and giving you control over what data we hold. Our Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand what information we collect and how we use and share that information. This privacy policy applies to:

  • Our Blockman “Website”(www.blockman.ie, www.blockman.co.uk, www.blockman.je).
  • Our software “Service” (app.blockman.ie, app.blockman.co.uk, app.blockman.je).
  • When you otherwise do business or make contact with us.

Please read this policy carefully to understand how we handle and treat your personal information.

What information do we collect?

  • Information you provide to us: We collect personal information when you voluntarily provide us with such information in the course of using our website or Services. For example, when you subscribe to notifications for our blog, if you make an enquiry through our website, or contact us in any other way, we will keep a copy of your communications with us.
  • Information collected when we do business with you: We may process your personal information when you do business with us – for example, as a customer or prospective customer, or as a vendor, supplier, consultant, or other third party.

We collect this information automatically through the use of various technologies, such as cookies.
  • Information we process on our customers behalf: As part of using our Service, a customer will upload their clients data. We process this personal information on behalf of our customers in the context of supporting and providing our service. It is the customer who controls what data is collected and stored on our systems. For example, the customer uses our Service to store a record of all unit owner/lessee names and contact details of an apartment block they manage. In such cases, we are data processors acting in accordance with the instructions of our customers. You will need to refer to the privacy policies of our customers to find out more about how such information is handled by them.

  • To monitor trends, usage patterns, administer or optimise the Service.
  • To communicate directly with you about important updates to the Service.
  • To improve advertising campaigns, primarily in an effort to prevent targeting of impressions via third-party channels when they are not relevant.

Data Security

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. We encrypt all entered data, from trivial to highly sensitve, in transit using industry-standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology. We limit access to personal information about you to our employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information in order to adequately provide our Service.

No method of transmission over the Internet, method of electronic storage or other security methods are one hundred percent secure. Although, while we strive to use all reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
