VER PRIVACY POLICY– YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS

 

Effective Date: May 26, 2018

THIS POLICY APPLIES TO THE PLATFORM WHERE IT APPEARS.

 

This Privacy Policy describes how VER (“we”) treat personal information collected on our websites, mobile sites and mobile applications where it is located. We refer to these as our “Platform.” 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.

such as your name, mailing address, phone number and email address when you provide it to us.

We collect billing information

such as your credit or debit card account number, VAT 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 when you use our Platform

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 Platform. 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 general location information.

 

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.

The provision of personal information is sometimes required by law and at other times is a result of a contractual requirement.  You may be required to provide personal information, for example in a case where we sign a contract with you, and the non-provision of personal information could, in certain circumstances, prevent a transaction from concluding.

 

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.

Digital Advertising

We work with third party companies that collect data from our Platform, as well as from other non-affiliated websites and mobile apps, over time in order to infer what interests you to deliver more relevant advertising to your browser or device, as well as browsers and devices associated with it.  This type of advertising is known as interest-based advertising.  To learn more about this type of advertising for your browser, and your choices about it for companies that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (“DAA”) WebChoices tool, you can visit www.aboutads.info/choices.  To learn about your choices about this activity on your mobile device for companies that participate in the DAA’s AppChoices you can download the appropriate version of the app from www.youradchoices.com/appchoices.

We adhere to the DAA’s Self-Regulatory Principles. If you exercise choice through these tools data will no longer be collected from that browser or device for interest-based advertising, and data collected from associated browsers or devices will not be used on the browser or device for interest-based advertising on the browser or device where choice was exercised.  Note that you will still see advertising, but that advertising may be less relevant to your interests.  If you use multiple browsers or devices, clear your cookies, or reset your device identifier you may need to exercise choice again.

OUR STORAGE OF INFORMATION

INTERNATIONAL VISITORS.

This section applies to those that visit us from the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or Switzerland.

We process personal information with your consent (e.g., when we process personal information to provide goods and services you request). On other occasions, we may process personal information when we need to do so to fulfill a contract or where required to do this by law.

If necessary, we may also process personal information when it is in our legitimate interests to do this (e.g., for customer service) and when these interests are not overridden by your data protection rights.

Please be aware that the personal information we collect may be transferred to and maintained on servers or databases located outside your state, province, country, or other jurisdiction, where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your location. If you are located outside of the United States, please be advised that we process and store personal information in the United States.The European Commission has adopted standard contractual clauses (also known as Model Clauses), which provide safeguards for personal information that is transferred outside of the EEA. We often use these Model Clauses when transferring personal information outside of the EEA.

You have a right to the following:

• To request access to the personal information we hold about you;

• To request that we rectify or erase your personal information;

• To request that we restrict or block the processing of your personal information;

• Under certain circumstances, to receive personal information about you that we store and transmit to another without hindrance from us, including requesting that we provide your personal information directly to another, i.e., a right to data portability; and

• Where we previously obtained your consent, to withdraw consent to processing your personal information.

To exercise these rights, contact “our Data Protection Officer” or “us” using the “How to Contact Us” section below.  Please be aware that we may be unable to afford these rights to you under certain circumstances, such as if we are legally prevented from doing so.

Additionally, you have the right to lodge a complaint against us. To do so, contact the supervisory authority in your country of residence.

 

OUR RETENTION PRACTICES.

We will process and store your information only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage, or as permitted by law. We will retain and use your information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your information to comply with applicable tax/revenue laws), resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and as otherwise described in this policy. After expiration of that period, the corresponding information is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of a contract or the initiation of a contract.
