We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time and will notify you of such changes by posting the modified Policy on our Site and indicating at the top of the Policy document the date it was last updated. Your use of the Site following the posting of such changes shall constitute your consent to any changes to ViaVote's privacy practices.
Personal Information: Personal information is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as an individual's name, address, telephone number, or email address. Personal information also includes demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic area and preferences when such information is linked to other personal information that identifies an individual.
Aggregate Information: Personal information does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data collected about a group or category of products, services or customers from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Likewise, information about the products you purchase may be collected and combined with information about the products purchased by others. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and customer needs so that we can better consider new products and services, and tailor existing products and services (including the Site) to customer desires.
You provide personal information to us in a number of ways when you visit the Site.
For example, you provide us with personal information when you:
We may collect your email address in this manner. You understand that when you submit information to us, including but not limited to comments, stories, photos, or videos (“Content”), for participation on the Site, that ViaVote may post or publish this information on the Site, and that you also agree ViaVote has an unlimited right to use your Content. Your participation in such activity on the Site, and associated information sharing, is done at your own risk - Please keep this in mind.
Web Beacons: “Web beacons” (also known as “web bugs,” “action tags,” “pixel trackers,” or “clear GIFs”) may also be used on the Site or in emails relating to the Site. Web beacons are small graphic images placed on a webpage, web-based document, or in an email message that allow the collection of certain information and monitor user activity on the Site. Web beacons are invisible because of their size (only 1 by 1 pixel) and because they are the same color as the background of the web page. We do not use Web beacons to collect personal information about you. Web beacons are used to collect non-personal information such as the IP address of the computer that the Web beacon is sent to, the URL of the page the Web user comes from and the time the Web beacon is activated (such as when you view the webpage, advertisement, or email that contains the Web beacon).
We are able
to offer the Services to you, in part, based on your willingness to be reached
by ViaVote. We also use contact information from your Personal Information to send
you information about the Services, and to keep you
informed of our other products and services that may be of interest to you and
to contact you about your account status.
If you enroll
in certain programs, we may use your Personal Information to send you a
welcome email that may confirm your registration details. In addition, we may

Personal Information) to respond to your questions or comments, and we may file

We may also supplement the information that we collect with information from other sources to assist us in evaluating and improving the Site and Services, and to determine your preferences so that we can tailor the Site and Services to your needs.
We do not sell, trade, or rent personal information to third parties without your prior consent except in the limited circumstances described in this Policy. We may share personal information with third-party vendors who assist us in performing internal functions necessary to operate our business. These functions may include, for example, analyzing traffic information or other data, and fulfilling or delivering services. In all cases we limit the information shared with our third-party vendors to that which is necessary to carry out those functions. We are not responsible for any additional information you provide to these parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their practices before disclosing information directly to them.
We also disclose personal information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a subpoena, warrant or court order) or with requests of law enforcement authorities, or other similar inquiries; to enforce or apply this Policy or our other policies or agreements; to protect our customers' rights, property or safety; to protect our customers from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of our Site; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
In addition, information about our customers, including personally identifiable information, may be disclosed or transferred as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing or sale of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personally identifiable information could be transferred to third parties as one of our business assets.
