How we use your personal information
If you do provide us with personal information:

We also use this information to improve our services, content, and marketing efforts. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by contacting us (firstname.lastname@example.org).

- We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve our products, services, and customer communications.

How we use your anonymous information
We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
- We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, location, device id, and the time zone where our website, portal or applications are used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.
- Aggregated data may also be used to help us further develop our product and for benchmarking purposes for us to provide comparative analytics to our customers.
If we do combine anonymous information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
How we may share your personal information
We may disclose your personal data to the following categories of recipients for our business purposes:
- to third-party service providers that support our business and operations;
- to law enforcement, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or (iii) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person;
- to a Vyopta partner if you have provided us your contact information, so that you may be contacted by a designated Vyopta partner for Vyopta’s commercial purposes;
- to any other person with your consent to the disclosure or as allowed by applicable data protection law.
Additionally, Vyotpa may share contact information that we collect directly from you or during some of Vyopta’s events, such as Vyopta’s seminars with sponsors and hosts of such events, for valuable consideration from such sponsor or host to Vyopta. Such sponsor or host may use it for their business or commercial purposes.
Cookies and Other Technologies
Like most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information for trend analysis, site administration, understanding user behavior on the site, and gathering information about our user base as a whole. If you set up your web browser (for example, Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox) so that cookies are not allowed, you might not be able to use some or all of the features of our website.
In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on our website. When users click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.
Third Parties and Services
We may receive personal information about you from other sources (i.e. contact information) from other companies that provide our services by way of a co-branded or private-labelled websites, or companies that provide services in connection with ours (resellers or channel partners). These organizations may provide us your name and other contact information to help us establish the account and fulfill orders.
At times Vyopta may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with Vyopta to provide products and services, or that help Vyopta market to customers. Personal information will only be shared by Vyopta to provide or improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.
Your Organization and Its Third-Parties
Vyopta may provide our customers with the ability, at their discretion, to integrate our services with a third-party service (such as, your internal support ticketing systems, CRMs or other such business systems). When integrated, we may share information with your organization’s third party provider. We are not responsible for how the third-party integrator may collect, use and share your information. Information that we may collect from third parties include address, titles, email addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses and social media profiles.
Service Providers, Resellers/Channel Partners and Technical Providers
Vyopta may collect from and share personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Vyopta operates. Information that we may collect for these parties include address, titles, email addresses, phone numbers and details of potential customer’s collaboration environment (for tailoring our services).
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for Vyopta to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
Protection of Personal Information
Vyopta takes precautions to protect your personal information against loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
Vyopta’s online services use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is collected. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it’s transmitted over the Internet. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.
When you use some Vyopta products, services, or applications or post on a Vyopta forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. Please take care when using these features. Additionally, to assist with protecting your privacy, be sure to never share your account login information with anyone else, log off of the Vyopta website, portal or applications when you are finished and take customary precautions to guard against “malware.”
Some of our applications may run on virtualized servers hosted by third-party hosting vendors with whom we have contracted. While we host with these third-party vendors and they control and operate the physical server environment, we do not provide them with access to your personal information. We endeavor to use hosting vendors with privacy protection policies and procedures as strict if not more protective than ours.

For EU Individuals: Your Rights Under GDPR
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
Should you wish to lodge a privacy related complaint or enforce your GDPR rights with a supervisory authority, please visit http://ec.europa.eu/justice/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/indiex_en.htm.
