Non-Personally Identifiable Information
From time to time, we may also ask you to provide us with non-personally identifiable information, that is, data that is not intended to allow us to identify you personally, such as your first name, birthday or postal code. This information may be aggregated and used for our internal purposes or for creating reports for third-party advertisers and partners, or otherwise shared with third parties for any lawful purpose, without your permission. No third party is intended to be able to know who you are as a result of the use of this information.
In addition to our use of technologies as described herein, we may permit certain third party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to you based on your use of the App and to otherwise collect and use data about your use of the App. The information that such advertisers use to perform these functions will be non-personally identifiable Information.
B. Passive Gathering of Information Electronically
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us or the App. IVVI and its authorized agents automatically receive and record certain “traffic data” on their server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie and web beacon information, and the page you requested. IVVI uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the App.
IVVI may take and, on any page, display a count of the total number of times that page has been viewed. This includes User Profile pages.
When you provide us with your information, we may use such information for a number of purposes, including:
As stated previously, you can always opt not to disclose information, but then you may be unable to use certain features of the App. By visiting your User Profile, you can correct, amend, add or delete personal information on the App.

Examples include, but are not limited to, companies and individuals who: (i) administer the IVVI accounts; (ii) conduct surveys or promotional activities; (iii) deliver products; or (iv) provide customer support, web hosting, Internet service, and data analysis. Such third parties may be provided with access to information needed to perform their functions but may not use such information for any other purpose.

We may release Personally Identifiable Information when we believe in good faith that such release is necessary to comply with a law; to enforce or apply our Terms and other policies; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of IVVI, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
C. Business Transfers
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets transferred. Moreover, if IVVI, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets transferred.

Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding to interact with any such other website.
B. Data Security
We maintain a variety of commercially reasonable safeguards designed to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, we use industry-accepted tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems.
You should be aware, however, that IVVI has no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit even where a link to such other website appears on the App. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your information.
We want you to feel confident using the App. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take commercially reasonable steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your information, searches or other communications will always remain secure. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your information, we will notify you if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may notify you under such circumstances using the e-mail address(es) we have on record for you. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your information.
You must be 13 years or older to register to use the IVVI App. IVVI does not intentionally collect information about children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. We require that anyone between the ages of 13 and 18 ask and receive his or her parent’s or guardian’s permission before using IVVI or sending information about himself or herself or anyone else over the Internet.
