Effective Date December 1, 2016
This policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that Voleo does not own or control, or to individuals that Voleo, Inc. does not employ or manage.
Collection of Information and Usage by Voleo
Voleo’s goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with an efficient, personally tailored, and enjoyable user experience on Voleo. There is certain requested information that you may choose to not provide us, but in doing so, you may be unable to take full advantage of all of Voleo’s Services.
Voleo collects user-submitted information such as names and email addresses to authenticate users and send notifications relating to the Voleo Site and Services.
Voleo also logs non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, app usage information, aggregate user data, and browser type from users and visitors to the app. This data is used to manage the app, track and score usage, and improve the app services. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third parties, business partners and affiliates to support the features and functionality of the site and services and to provide more relevant services and targeted marketing messages to members. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.
User Profile information including members’ pictures and profile names are displayed in order to facilitate user interaction in the Voleo social networking community. With few exceptions, a user’s email address is not shared or displayed to people within a user’s personal network. Users within a personal network communicate on Voleo with each other through the Voleo service, without disclosing their email addresses. Users’ full names are never directly revealed to other members, unless you so chose as your user name. We may also use a user’s email address to send updates, alerts, newsletters, or news regarding the Service. Users may choose not to receive email of this type by changing their “Notification” setting in their Profile Settings or by “Unsubscribing” at the bottom of email communications. A user may also request to no longer receive the above communications by using the contact information provided below.
Occasionally, Voleo, Inc., or a third party business partner, affiliate or alliance member may sponsor a promotion, such as a product giveaway, sweepstake, or contest on Voleo. Users may be asked to provide personal information including name, email address, or home address, or to answer questions in order to participate. We may transfer personal information to certain partners from whom you have explicitly requested to receive information. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply.
Our Site and Services may include links to other Web sites whose privacy practices may differ from those of Voleo. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy statements. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any Web site you visit.
Social Sharing of Data
* Voleo allows other users to view companies you track, your comments, product and company ratings, photos and/or videos you upload, and any other material you make publicly available on the Site or Services.
* Profile information: Voleo allows other users to browse your user name and any other profile details, should you provide this optional information.
* API: Voleo will provide third parties access to Voleo data that is already publicly available through Voleo.com. Voleo will keep private passwords, settings and other personally identifiable information in our database, and in those of third parties whose technologies are integrated with the Service.
As is true of most Web sites and Mobile applications, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the Site / Services and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We currently link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information. IP addresses are tied to personally identifiable information to provide a more secure experience.
We use a third-party tracking service, Google Analytics, to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our Site / Services in the aggregate such as referring sites, geographic location, time spent on the website, pages visited, and other metrics commonly collected in the usual course of business to identify potential areas for targeted improvements to the Site and Services.
What About Cookies?
* The “Help” portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will instruct you on how to block your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. In order to take full advantage of the Site and Services, cookies should be activated and enabled.
Sharing of Information Received
Information about our users is an essential part of Voleo’s services. We neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone. We share your personal information only as described below
- We may disclose your personal information:
- as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process
- when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request,
- if Voleo, Inc., is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information,
- to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a social security number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Your Voleo account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You have the responsibility of protecting against unauthorized access to your password and your computer.
Only employees who require personal information to perform a specific function (for example, a customer service representative or technician) are granted access to it. All employees are apprised of our privacy and security practices.
Accessing and Altering Personal information
You can access your personal information on our app and correct, amend, or delete information that is inaccurate. As stated previously, you may opt-out and choose not to disclose personal information, but as a result, you may be unable to use certain features of the app.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services contact us at [email protected] We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal and our regulatory compliance obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements.
We may update this privacy statement to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Site prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. Users will always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and when we may disclose it. A user is bound by any changes to the policy when he/she uses the site after those changes have been disclosed.
