VivioSites Privacy Policy

VivioSites knows you value your privacy. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you of what kinds of information we may gather and how we may use that information.

What This Privacy Policy Covers

This Privacy Policy covers how we treat information about you that we collect and receive through the Service and Hosted Services.

This Privacy Policy does not cover the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to people that we do not employ or manage. The Service permits our customers to create and publish websites that may collect information from you (“Hosting Services”). VivioSites does not own or control the information that is stored and maintained by us through our Hosting Services. The information that is submitted by you to our customers will be held subject to the requirements specified by our customers and the contracts we have with them.

This Privacy Policy does not reflect the privacy practices of our customers, and we are not responsible for our customers’ privacy policies or practices. We do not review, comment upon, or monitor our customers’ privacy policies or their compliance with their respective privacy policies, nor do we review our customers’ instructions with respect to our processing of information to determine whether such instructions are in compliance or conflict with the terms of the customers’ published privacy policy.

The Service may contain links to other websites and VivioSites does not take responsibility for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave the Service and to read the privacy statements of the websites you visit.

What Information Do We Collect Online?

Unless otherwise stated in another, more specific policy on the Web pages you are viewing, we collect the following types of information when you use the Service:

  • Account Information.       Information you provide directly, such as your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and company name.
  • Customer Support. We collect information, such as payment information, through your communications with our customer-support team. We may also receive a confirmation when you open an email sent from us.
  • Using Customers’ Websites. We maintain the information collected or provided by our customers using the Service. It is our customers’ responsibility to ensure that the information they collect is collected and used in compliance with applicable law, including, for example, providing the appropriate level of notice to individuals.
  • Cookies, Automatic Data Collection, and Related Technologies. We and our third-party partners, such as advertising networks and analytics providers, use “cookies” and other similar technologies to automatically collect information about how the Service and customer websites are used, such as IP address, website clicks, and other usage information from users. Our partners also may collect information about your online activities over time and on other websites or apps. You may be able to change browser settings to block and delete cookies. However, if you do that, the Service and customer websites may not work properly.
  • Anonymized and Aggregate Information. We may anonymize and aggregate data collected through the Service and Hosting Services, and use and disclose it for any business purpose. For example, we share statistical data so that our customers and potential customers can understand how and how often individuals use our services and their services or websites, which allows us to improve all such services.

How Do We Use This Information?

We use information collected via the Service and Hosting Services in the following ways:

  • Service-Related Purposes. We use information for internal and service-related purposes and may provide it to third parties to allow us to facilitate the Service and Hosting Services.

For example, we use information, such as ordering information or e-mail messages, to process your orders and requests.
  • Customize the Service or Customers’ Websites. For some registration and use data, we may direct you to particular Web pages, customize the Web pages you see, or otherwise increase the relevance of the information you access through the Web site.
  • Advertising. We may use information to provide online advertising on the Service, the customer websites provided using the Hosting Services, and on third-party websites and Internet services.

  • As Directed by Customers. We maintain information provided or collected by our customers when they use the Hosting Services. This information may include personal information about individuals.
