Web Philosophic, LLC (“Vetted”) operates websites, mobile applications, and other services including vettedforyou.com, iPhone, iPad, and Android applications, and APIs (collectively, the “Services”). It is is Vetted’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our Services.
Like most websites, mobile applications, and internet service operators, Vetted collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Vetted’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Vetted’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Vetted may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Vetted also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in and logged out users at vettedforyou.com. Vetted only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Certain visitors to Vetted’s Services choose to interact with Vetted in ways that require Vetted to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Vetted gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. When people sign up for Vetted, we ask them to connect social accounts and provide other information, such as location, that we can use to help the user find interesting content and share it with their friends. In each case, Vetted collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Vetted. Vetted does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Vetted may collect statistics about the behavior of users of its Services. For instance, Vetted may monitor all user interactions in order to predict what users will find interesting, or to know what is most popular on Vetted. Vetted may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Vetted does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Vetted discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Vetted’s behalf or to provide services available at Vetted’s services, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Vetted’s services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Vetted will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Vetted discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Vetted believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Vetted, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Vetted and have supplied your email address, Vetted may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Vetted. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Vetted takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Vetted, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Vetted goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Vetted may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
