VER PRIVACY POLICY– YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS

 

Effective Date: May 26, 2018. Last Updated: May 25, 2018

THIS POLICY APPLIES TO THE PLATFORMS WHERE IT APPEARS.

This Privacy Policy describes how we treat personal information collected on our websites, mobile sites and mobile applications where it is located. We refer to these as our “Platforms.” This policy does not apply to information we collect in other ways, such as information we collect from you offline.

 

WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM AND ABOUT YOU.

We collect contact information.
For example, we collect your name and mailing address. This may include your zip code. We do also collect phone numbers and email addresses.

We collect billing information.
For example, we collect your credit or debit card account number and your billing address. We also collect information to help you determine the amount of taxes you may need to pay in connection with your rental or purchase.

We collect account information.
For example, if you create an account, we collect your username and password.

We collect information you post or submit.
We collect information you post in a public space on our Platforms. This may include posts you make on our social media pages. We also collect your social media profile information. We also collect the information you submit to us, such as through our “Contact” or “Checkout With Agent” features. This is all so we may serve you our customer better and make your experience with us as easy as possible.

We collect job application information.
If you apply for a job through our Platform, we collect the information you include in your application. For example, this includes the name and address of your employer and your education and employment history.

We collect demographic information.
For example, we collect gender and ethnicity in connection with a job application, but only then with your express consent at the time of disclosure.

We collect device and location information.
We collect the type and make of device you use to access our Platform. We also collect information about the browser you are using. We collect information across the devices you use to access our Platform. This includes your IP address or mobile operating system.  If you use our app, we might look at how often you use the app and where you downloaded it.  We may also collect location information. This may include precise location information from your device.

 

WE COLLECT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU IN SEVERAL WAYS.

We collect information directly from you.
For example, we collect information when you request information about our products and services or sign up for an event. We also collect information when, for example, you sign up to receive communications from us.

We collect information from you passively.
We use common tracking technologies to collect information passively. We do this in our websites and in emails that we send to you. We collect information about users over time when you use this Platform. We have third parties collect personal information this way through “cookies”. Learn more about these tools and how you can control them here.

We receive information about you from other sources.
For example, at trade shows, but will make sure that you have provided your consent to this disclosure to us.

 

WE COMBINE INFORMATION WE OBTAIN FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES.

We combine information that we collect offline with information we collect online. We combine information you submit or that we track across multiple devices. We also combine information we collect from you with information we get about you from others.

 

WE USE INFORMATION IN A VARIETY OF WAYS

We use your information to communicate with you.
This includes responding to your questions or inquiries or notifying you if you win a promotion. We will also use your information to send you information about your account or about our relationship.

We use information to provide you with our products and services.
This includes fulfilling your quote and order requests. This includes determining your eligibility for our services, including certain types of customer accounts.

We use your information to understand your interests and improve our products and services.
We use your information to make our Platform, products and services better. This includes improving user experience. We also use your information to customize your experience with us. For example, we use your information to determine your interest in our products and services or to better understand what products and services interest you.

We use your information for marketing purposes.
We provide you from time to time with information about current or new products and services or other ads that we think you might find interesting and useful. We use geolocation information to send these communications.

We use information for security purposes, to protect both you and us. This includes protecting our family of companies and our customers. It may also include protecting our Platform.

We use information as permitted or required by law.
This includes using your information for our legitimate business needs, and ultimately so we may better serve you.

We share information with our business partners.
For example, this includes third parties that provide services to help support our productions or provide insurance services for our customers.

We will share your information with any successor to all or part of our business as permitted by law.
For example, if all or part of our business is sold, we may share your personal information with the new owner. This may include as part of an asset sale, corporate reorganization or other change of control.

We will share information to comply with the law or to protect ourselves.
This includes responding to a court order or subpoena. It also includes sharing information if a government agency or investigatory body requests, but we will limit this disclosure as much as possible. We share information when we are investigating a potential fraud. This could include fraud we think has occurred during a sweepstakes or promotion. We also share information if you are the winner of a sweepstakes or other contest with anyone who requests a winner’s list.

We will share information for other reasons we may describe to you.
