This policy covers how VivaSoft treats information about you that VivaSoft collects and receives, including information related to your use of VivaSoft products and services.
This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that VivaSoft does not own or control, or to people that VivaSoft does not employ or manage. In addition, certain VivaSoft partners may have their own privacy policies and statements.
2. PERSONAL INFORMATION
VivaSoft collects personal information when you visit the VivaSoft websites, join the VivaSoft Community, sign-up for a mailing list, request news and product information, enter contests, complete surveys or purchase VivaSoft products and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address or phone number, and that is otherwise not publicly available. We use the personal information you voluntarily provide to register you for an account with the VivaSoft Community, to send information you've requested and to fulfill orders.
When you join the VivaSoft Community you must provide an email address and you have the option of signing up for VivaSoft mailing lists. When you purchase VivaSoft commercial licenses, support or other services, we may add you to one or more of our mailing lists and we may occasionally contact you via email. When you enter a contest or survey, we may ask for your name, address and email address so we can administer the contest and notify winners.
3. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
VivaSoft does not sell or rent your personal information to anyone. If you are referred to our site from one of our partners we may share basic registration information with the partner from which you were referred. We may also release personal information when we believe that it is required to comply with the law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of VivaSoft, our users, or others. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for purposes of fraud protection and credit risk management. Please note, VivaSoft mailing lists may be archived by several third party sites and your email address may be found on these archive sites. VivaSoft doesn't have control over mailing list archive sites.
