How Do We Use Personally Identifiable Information?
We use the collected data for the following purposes:
Any personal information that you voluntarily disclose online (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, within your public profile page, through a user submission, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others. If you have not opted out from receiving emails from us, we may use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages on behalf of ourselves, VOKAL. We also may use your email address for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Website changes or for customer service purposes). You cannot opt out of receiving emails for non-marketing or administrative purposes. We use aggregated information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Website and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends. In addition, we may use “cookies,” clear gifs and log file information to deliver content (which may include third-party advertisements) specific to your interests, and remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it each time you visit the Website.
Will We Share Personally Identifiable Information with Others?
There is a way to turn off cookies by going to your browser’s Help or Settings menu. However, keep in mind that disabling cookies may limit your use of the Website and/or delay or affect the way in which it operates.
Is My Information Secure?
We have implemented security measures to protect personally identifiable information collected on the Website against loss, misuse or alteration. Only our administrators are allowed to access our Website’s password-protected server where your personal information is stored. We utilize SSL. In addition, where applicable, your account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. It is important that you protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by logging off once you have finished using a shared computer. Moreover, despite the precautions described above, we cannot and do not guarantee that the individual user information you have transmitted will not be intercepted by others and/or decrypted or accidentally disclosed, and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure.
In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy
In the event that we are acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
You must be at least 13 years old to register to use the Website. We do not knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 13. Our Website is not directed to children under the age of 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided any personal info, it will be erased from our database as soon as reasonably possible, except when we need to keep that information for legal purposes or to notify a parent or guardian. However, portions of this data may remain in back-up archives or web logs even after we erase it from our databases. If a parent or guardian believes that a child has sent us personal information, send us an email at email@example.com.
Your California Privacy Rights
We will not share your personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes to the extent it is forbidden by California law. If our practices change, we will do so in accordance with applicable laws and will notify you in advance. California law requires that operators of online services disclose how they respond to a Do Not Track signal. Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. At this time we do not respond to Do Not Track signal.
