Privacy Policy

Last updated: April 1st, 2017

Our privacy practices reflect the current global principles and standards on handling personal information. These principles include notice of data use, choice of data use, data access, data integrity, security, onward transfer, and enforcement/oversight. We abide by the privacy laws in the countries where we do business.

Consent

By using this Website, you agree to the collection and use of the information as described here. If we decide to make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the changes on this site, so that you will always know what information we collect and how we use it.

From time to time, as may be required by the applicable law, we may also seek your explicit consent to process certain data and information collected on this website or volunteered by you.

Collection and Processing of Your Personal Data

To serve you better and understand your needs and interests, Visualtip collects, exports, and uses personal information with adequate notice and consent, along with required filings with data protection authorities, when applicable.

When you visit our web site, we may record your IP address and use cookies and other Internet technologies (referred to below as Automated Tools and Embedded Web Links) to gather general information about our visitors and their interests. The technologies used and the information collected are described in more detail below.

We may further collect and process any information and data that you volunteer to us, e.g. when you register for events, subscribe to newsletters, participate in online surveys, discussion groups or forums, or when make purchases.

Use and Purpose of Collected Personal Data

The information Visualtip collects to understand your needs and interests helps Visualtip deliver a consistent and personalized experience. We will use such information only as described in this Privacy Policy and/or in the way we specify at the time of collection. We will not subsequently change the way your personal data is used without your consent, as required by applicable law. Some of the ways we may use your personal data include, but are not limited to:

  • to process your orders and deliver the products and services that you have ordered;
  • to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, software upgrades, security patches, system enhancements, special offers, and other information. This may occasionally include information from other technology companies or business partners about products and services that can add value to your Visualtip products;
  • to tailor information about our products and services to your individual interests. For example, during a visit to our site, it allows us to provide you with specific information on products and services that may be of interest;
  • to provide the ability to create personal profile areas and view protected content;
  • in order to ensure and control the quality of the information and experience you have during chat sessions with Visualtip by educating our personnel to effectively answer your questions;
  • to provide the ability to contact you, and provide you with shipping and billing information, and to provide customer feedback and support;
  • to conduct questionnaires and surveys in order to provide better products and services to our customers and end users. Your completion of any questionnaires is voluntary;
  • to support recruitment inquiries; and
  • to meet contractual obligations.

IP Addresses

We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems, to administer our website, and to gather demographic information. We may also use IP addresses or other information, such as your visualtip.com user information you have shared on this website or at any earlier occasion or a campaign code, to determine which pages on our sites are being visited and topics that may be of interest so we can provide you with information about relevant products and services. Generally, Visualtip will aggregate such data only in an anonymous way and will not tie it to a particular individual, unless he or she has given their consent.

Visualtip will only gather information related to your visit to the Visualtip site. We do not track or collect personal information from your visits to companies or entities outside the Visualtip.

Automated Tools

In addition to the information you provide, Visualtip may also collect information during your visit to an Visualtip website through automated tools, which include Web beacons, cookies, embedded Web links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our website such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived at an Visualtip website. Using these tools, Visualtip is also able to confirm receipt of e-mails that the recipient consented to receive, and can track other information such as pages visited on the Visualtip site and whether or not the recipient registers for an event, offered by Visualtip, and certain other aggregate data that is not related to a particular individual.

Embedded Web Links

Emails from Visualtip often use links designed to lead you to a relevant area on the Web, after redirection through Visualtip's servers. The redirection system allows Visualtip to change the destination URL of these links, if necessary, and to determine the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives.

In emails, such links may also allow Visualtip to determine if you have clicked on a link in the email, and the information about this interaction may be connected to your personal identity. If you do not want Visualtip to collect information about the links you clicked, you can simply choose not to click on the links in an e-mail that Visualtip sends you.

Cookies

We use cookies to deliver personalized content, to save you the effort of having to re-enter your password repeatedly, to keep track of your shopping cart, and to tailor our information offerings to how you and others use the site.

E-mail Addresses

If you choose to give us your e-mail address, we will communicate with you via e-mail. We do not share your e-mail address with others outside the Visualtip. You can choose not to receive any more e-mail at any time.

Depending on how your e-mail application is set up, information about you may be transmitted automatically when you send e-mail to Visualtip.

If you choose to register for third-party services, we may need to send some information from your visualtip.com registration to the service provider, possibly including your e-mail address.

Shopping or Event Registration

Our site includes order forms that you fill out to request information, products, and services. These forms may collect your financial information, such as your banking details or credit card numbers. Visualtip promises to use any financial information that you submit solely for billing and payment purposes for that special transaction. This may include the transfer of your data to third parties involved in executing the transaction, such as banks, credit card companies and other financial and credit control institutions.

Sharing Your Personal Data

We may also share such information with business partners, service vendors, authorized third-party agents or contractors in order to provide a requested service or transaction, including processing orders, processing credit card transactions, hosting websites, hosting event and seminar registration and providing customer support, or providing you with information on products and services that may be of interest to you.

We only provide these third parties with the minimum amount of personal data necessary to provide the services on our behalf, and the third parties are not permitted to use your personal data except for the limited purpose of completing the requested service or transaction.

We do not sell or rent your personal data to third parties for marketing purposes, unless you have granted us permission to do so.

We may respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process by disclosing your personal data and other related information, if necessary. We also may choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We may collect and possibly share personal data and any other additional information available to us in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of visualtip.com's terms of use or as otherwise required by law.

While visiting visualtip.com website you may be directed to content or functionality that is hosted by a third-party supplier, not on visualtip.com. In most cases this is done to host special events, such as contests or seminars. When information is collected on behalf of Visualtip exclusively, the appropriate Visualtip entity's privacy Policy will be referenced on the site and will govern how information is used. For other, non-Visualtip sites, the site's owner's privacy policy will be referenced. It is Visualtip's practice to require such suppliers and business partners to handle information in a manner consistent with Visualtip's privacy Policy.

Security of Your Personal Data

Visualtip is committed to protecting the personal data you share with us. Visualtip uses a combination of industry-standard security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Visualtip supports online security using secure server technology because we want your data to be safe. There are state-of-the-art security arrangements and facilities on Visualtip sites to prevent abuse.

We bind our employees to observe your privacy and confidentiality rights.

Links to Other Sites

This site may contain links to other sites. Visualtip is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites.

Data Retention

Visualtip will not retain your personal data longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.

Inquiries, Access and Updating Your Personal Data

Visualtip needs your help in keeping the personal data you have shared with us accurate and up to date. If you are a registered user, you may make these updates yourself online via visualtip.com. You may also make these updates or other changes by sending an email to support@visualtip.com.
