Vivoom, Inc. (herein referred to as the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) provides and makes available this web site located at www.vivoom.co (the “Site”) and the mobile web experience known as “Mobile App” or “Mobile Webapp”). The Site and the mobile web experience are referred to collectively, as the “Vivoom Service” or “Vivoom Platform”. Company has developed this Site to provide information about our company as well as information and access to our video enhancement and video sharing services to our users like you (“You”, “Your”). This Privacy Policy sets forth Company's policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data” or “Personal Information”) and other information that is collected from Vivoom Service users. The terms of this Privacy Policy are incorporated by reference in the terms of use agreement that you accept upon registering for the Vivoom Service (the “Terms of Use Agreement”). By accepting the Terms of Use Agreement, you accept the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to any of these terms, then please do not use the Vivoom Service. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Use Agreement.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT:

When you interact with us through the Vivoom Service, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below.

Personal Data That You Provide Through the Service:

We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you register for access to the Vivoom Service, use the Vivoom Service, contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys and/or submit your Personal Data through information collection points through the Site and the mobile web experience from time to time. Wherever Company collects Personal Data we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.

In order to use certain parts of this Vivoom Service, we may collect and require certain Personal Data, including, but not limited to:

  • email address, as login
  • demographic information such as geographic region, language, and preferences
  • social network identification, if it was used for login or sharing
  • other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to the Vivoom Service, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of Company and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.

Other Information:

When you interact with Company through the Vivoom Service, we receive and store personally identifiable information, which is collected passively by Company using various technologies. Company may store such information itself or such information may be included in logs or databases owned and maintained by Company affiliates, agents or service providers. We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Vivoom Service, the number of visitors to each page or feature of the Vivoom Service, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers.

We may use third-party analytics technology to track and collect anonymous traffic data about the use of the Vivoom Service. This information includes information about the type of mobile device you are using, device model, device id, advertising id, operating system, Vivoom Service version, your IP addresses, location, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of the Vivoom Service you visit, and similar information that will help us analyze and evaluate how the Vivoom Service is used (“Usage Information”). The third-party technology providers may have access to your information only for the purposes of performing these tasks and on behalf of Company and under obligations similar to those in this Privacy Policy.

In operating the Vivoom Service, we may use technologies called "cookies" or advertising identifiers. A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts the Vivoom Service gives to your browser when you access the Vivoom Service. Similarly, an advertising identifier may be recorded from a mobile device. These technologies help provide additional functionality to the Vivoom Service and help us analyze the usage of the Vivoom Service more accurately. For instance, the Vivoom Service may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Vivoom Service without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Vivoom Service.  These technologies may make it possible for you to receive coupon offers or access to special themes restricted to users of Vivoom.

In all cases in which we use cookies or advertising identifiers, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission. On most web browsers, you will find a "help" section on the toolbar. On iOS, Android, and other mobile devices you will be able to control advertiser identifier use in your Privacy Settings. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies and advertising identifiers turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the features of the Vivoom Service. If you reject cookies or advertising identifiers, you may still use the Vivoom Service, but your ability to use some areas and/or features of the Vivoom Service will be limited.

The Vivoom Service includes social media features ("Features"), such as the Facebook Like button and exit URLs that run on the Vivoom Service. These Features may collect your IP address, which pages and/or features you are visiting on the Vivoom Service and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. Social media Features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the Vivoom Service. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Aggregated Anonymous Personal Data:

In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Vivoom Service, we often conduct research on our customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other personal information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and Company may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

We may share Usage Information about your activities on the Site and the mobile web experience with our third party advertising partners who will use this information to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests.
