Veza, Inc. inclusive of its subsidiaries, (collectively, “Veza”) is dedicated to providing informative and useful information about its products and services through online, mobile, and other software and related systems and platforms, as well as any in-person, telephone, or other offline locations or through other aspects of Veza’s business (collectively, the “System”), including, without limitation, on and through the websites located at www.veza.com and/or other portion of the System designated by Veza from time to time. As a part of the operation of the System, Veza gathers certain data about users.
Types of Data Collected
As you navigate any part of the System, you may find that there are online forms or other locations which you can use to request information regarding a specific product or service. In order for Veza to effectively enable the System and allow access to certain content or otherwise facilitate Veza’s business, Veza does collect and use certain data. Two types of data are collected: (a) personal data, such as names, company names, postal addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, occupation, dates of birth, age, gender, financial information, credit card information, bank account information, social security information, product and/or service preferences, and comments that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person (“Personal Data”); and (b) non-personal aggregate or traffic data, such as your IP address, which web pages or portions of the System you are visiting, the order in which the areas are visited, unique device identifier, time zone, which hyperlinks or functions are being “clicked”, how many users are visiting or accessing the System, domain server, location-based or real-time geographic location information, type of computer or device, and type of web browser (“Traffic Data” and together with Personal Data, the “Collected Data”).
Collection and Usage
Personal Data is gathered when users provide or authorize Personal Data to or through the System, for example, when requesting information, participating in an online survey, inputting content into the System, verifying user credentials, purchasing products or services, allowing access to social media networks, or utilizing any other Veza product or service through the System. Personal Data is also gathered about others when users share content with family, friends, or other contacts, without limitation, the name, email address, phone number, and mailing address.
Traffic Data is tracked and gathered when you and other users visit or access the System. While gathering Traffic Data may not collect Personal Data, it may provide information on the geographical location from which users access the System. Traffic Data generally does not identify individual users. Instead, the Traffic Data identifies System users as a whole, including demographic information, preferences in content and advertising, quality of service, and web and application traffic patterns.
Veza may, in Veza’s sole and absolute discretion, release and disclose the Collected Data to affiliated or contracted persons, associations, or other entities of whatsoever nature, including, without limitation, strategic alliances and advertising affiliated persons and/or entities (the “Related Parties”) or to any law enforcement agency, court, or other governmental authority to: (a) help Veza respond to your requests for information, goods or services and/or otherwise fulfill a user’s lawful request; (b) respond or otherwise comply with subpoenas, court orders, or other edicts of the law or legal process; (c) protect and defend Veza’s rights and property; or (d) to protect the personal safety of Veza’s users, Veza’s employees, or the public.
For instance, Veza may use your Personal Data to: (1) send you information about Veza and its products, updates, services, important notices, special offers, and/or upcoming promotions; (2) send you information about the Related Party’s products and services; (3) conduct surveys about your opinion of Veza, its staff, performance, products and services or the System; (4) verify your qualifications for certain promotions, special offers, products and services; (5) bill you for any products and services purchased through the System via a credit card, electronic, or other payment; and (6) customize, improve, and/or tailor your experience on the System by displaying content that Veza thinks you might be interested in according to your preferences.
Veza may, in Veza’s sole and absolute discretion, release and disclose the Collected Data to any persons, associations, or other entities of whatsoever nature not affiliated with Veza (the “Non-Affiliates”) for the purpose of facilitating your instructions, requests and/or registrations for products or services provided by Veza or the Non-Affiliates (including, without limitation, customer support, information technology support, credit card or other electronic payment processing and personal profile services) when the transfer of such Collected Data is necessary to provide you with such products or services. By selecting, instructing, requesting, reserving and/or registering for such products or services from Veza or the Non-Affiliates on or through the System, you consent to the release of your Collected Data to the Non-Affiliates. Veza shall use reasonable efforts to provide the Non-Affiliates access only to the Personal Data necessary to assist in responding to your instructions, requests, and/or registrations for such products or services and cause such Non-Affiliates to use your Personal Data for these limited purposes.
Veza may also disclose, release, transfer, sell, or otherwise convey any Collected Data to prospective or actual buyers, sellers or persons and/or entities related to such actions by Veza, including, without limitation, Veza may transfer information about you if Veza is acquired by or merge with, or otherwise sell any portion of Veza’s assets or equity to any other company.
You consent to any and all such conveyances of the Collected Data regardless of your location and your consent includes any and all such conveyances outside of your location, including, without limitation, in the United States and in other countries and territories.
