Hold on. Hold on. There, that’s better.
Well, because we take your privacy seriously. And we’re not just saying that.
Maybe? but on a serious note, we really want you to know what we’re doing about your privacy. Also, because we paid our lawyers a lot for this, and we’d like to get our money’s worth.
All things change. Change is good. Just look in the mirror.
If we do something small, like fix a speling mistake, we won’t do anything. If we do something important, like become really evil, we’ll put a notice on this website, telling you all about it. That way you can see what changes we made and decide if you still like us.
You always will.
If you don’t, we must part ways. Dealers choice.
Nah. We love getting email, but you’ve got better things to do. (Water your plants, maybe?) If you go on using our sites after we publish the notice, it means you’re okay with the policy changes. No need to tell us, just keep on truckin’.
Here below, we (“Veve”) will explain to you (“you”) how we (“Veve”) treat the personal information (“Personal Information”) we collect from visitors (“Visitors”).
Glad you asked. A “Visitor” is someone who visits our site. Like you. “Personal Information” is information about you that is personally identifiable, such as your name, address, email address, or phone number, and information that is not otherwise publicly available.
Don’t worry about it.
I know, right?
In general, we use the personal information we collect for four things:
• To improve our service,
• to respond to inquiries,
• to send newsletters to people who want them (nudge, nudge), and
• to customize our user’s experience of our sites.
Excellent question. We don’t rent, sell, or share the personal information we collect with other people or non-affiliated companies, except:
• If disclosure is reasonably necessary to investigate, or prevent, illegal action,
• If disclosure is necessary to respond to subpoenas, court orders, to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, or to enforce the Veve Terms of Service (if any),
• If you specifically request we share the Personal Information you have provided, or
• If Veve merges or is acquired by another company.
When reasonable, we will make reasonable efforts to notify of such disclosure before it happens.
Yeah, that happens sometimes.
If you’re still reading this you would probably have made a good one, frankly.
It’s never too late.
We protect your information by requiring the employees who have access to the personal information to treat it as confidential. They will never share it with anyone or use it for a purpose we have not authorized.
It's a small world. Enjoy it.
We know everything.
Basically we know and store two types of things: First, there’s the stuff you send us using the contact forms on our sites (your name, your email address, and whatever else you choose). Then there are the things your computer and browser tell us (your IP address, software and hardware attributes, the pages you request, and information from our cookie).
Yes, don't worry. This is just how lawyers talk.
You have the right to see the personal information you’ve provided to us, and to request we delete it from our database within a reasonable time.
Why yes, of course. According to California law, residents may request a list of what Personal Information, if any, we have disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year, and the names and addresses of those third parties. If you do, we will provide you with that list. Requests may be made only once a year.
Generally, yes. But in case you were asking because of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we want you to know that our websites are not intended for children under the age of 13, and we do not collect, use or disclose personal information from children.
We thought so. Anything else?
Why? What’s wrong with it?
What do you mean?
Ok, so why would you bring that up?
