USING THE VVALLS WEBSITE
Interactions with the VValls Service. Many aspects of the VValls Service are designed to help you create and share projects with the world. Accordingly, much of the information you provide to us is information that you are asking us to make public. For example, when you register, you have the option of providing additional information to associate with your account and make public through your user profile, including an avatar, your location (a text field which could say, for example,"New York City" a public email address, your personal website.) When using the VValls Service, you will also have opportunities to make other information public, including any projects you publish on Vvalls.com, users that you choose to follow, rate, or comment on, etc.
External social networking information. You can elect to provide your IDs for some popular social networking sites (such as Twitter, Facebook or Google) so that we can show you which of your contacts are using the VValls Service and allow you to decide whether to follow their public interactions with the VValls Service or invite them to follow your public interactions with the VValls Service. You can also choose to share actions you take on the VValls Service on these other social networking sites. Please note that we are not and cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of any of these external social networking sites, and encourage you to read their privacy policies.
Communicating with you. We will typically communicate with you using your registered email address. If we cannot reach you by email, we may use other contact information that you provide. We will communicate with you in accordance with your preferences and in response to inquiries, to provide requested services and to manage your account. We will send you mandatory service-related announcements and notifications by email when necessary. You cannot opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option of canceling your account. We may broadcast or otherwise distribute important messages to all users or send individual messages to specific users where we have appropriate contact information to do so. We also may send information to you by email about our services, including special alerts, offers, awards, surveys, contests, promotions and updates. You will be given the option not to receive these types of communications.
Surveys and Contests. We may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys from time to time. Participation in contests or surveys is completely voluntary. If you choose to participate, we may request certain additional information about you. We may use this information to monitor system traffic, supplement, amend and personalize our system, direct advertisements, communicate with participants, develop our products and services, or conduct market research. We will use email addresses to distribute and collect surveys, notify contest winners and award prizes.
Legal sharing for protection of us, you, and others. We may disclose personal information to third parties who are assisting us in protecting against or preventing actual or potential fraud, unauthorized transactions, claims or other liabilities, or to investigate potential fraudulent or questionable activities. We may disclose personal information in response to legal process, such as in response to a court order or a subpoena. We may disclose personal information in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud, violations of our Terms, or as we believe may be otherwise required by law. We may also disclose personal information to protect our rights or interests or the rights or interests of others.
Merger or sale. If vvalls.com or all or substantially all of Dot Dash 3 or its assets are sold or transferred, your personal information and other information we have collected may be treated as an asset and transferred in accordance with this Policy.
Non-private or non-personal information. We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personal information, such as information you publicly share, the number of users that viewed your posts, such as Log Data (as defined below), etc.
HOW DO WE COLLECT AND USE TECHNICAL INFORMATION?
Clear gifs (Web beacons). We use a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to personally identifiable information you submit while you are on the system. We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
Log Data. Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the VValls Service. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with our website, applications and advertisements, may also be included in Log Data.
Personalization of Experience. We may personalize your experience by using your site behavior to shape any recommendations we may make about content, including advertising, that might be of interest to you. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and Site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the Site.
UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you are a registered user of the VValls Service, you can access and modify the personal information you provided to us through vvalls.com.
HOW VVALLS SECURES YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
VValls user accounts are protected by user-created passwords. We use reasonable measures to protect user information that is stored within our systems, and we restrict access to user information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel, service administrators, and technical staff.
Our physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards meet or exceed current federal standards regarding the protection of customer information. We also require contractors and outside companies who work with us to adhere to strict privacy standards through their contracts with us. Unfortunately, no security system, transmission of data over the Internet or mobile devices, or even physical transfer of information, can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Consequently, while we use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and our servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the website. Any information that you provide to us is done so entirely at your own risk. We do not ensure or warrant the security of any data or information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
If we learn of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may post a notice on our website if a security breach occurs. We also may notify you through the email address associated with your account. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice), you should notify us at email@example.com.
CHILDREN AND INTERNATIONAL VISITORS
The VValls Service is not directed to people under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove that information and terminate the child's account. In addition, if you learn that your child who is under the age of 18 has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
