Effective Date: November 19th, 2018
Like most website operators, MAV Personnel collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. MAV Personnel’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MAV Personnel’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Vanilla may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
MAV Personnel also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. MAV Personnel does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to MAV Personnel’s websites choose to interact with MAV Personnel in ways that require MAV Personnel to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MAV Personnel gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an employee profile at MAVPersonnel.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with MAV Personnel are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, MAV Personnel collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MAV Personnel. MAV Personnel does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities. MAV Personnel does not keep a copy of any credit card information once a transaction is complete.
MAV Personnel may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, MAV Personnel may monitor the most popular postings on the MAVPersonnel.com site. MAV Personnel may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MAV Personnel does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
MAV Personnel discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on MAV Personnel’s behalf or to provide services available at MAV Personnel’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using MAV Personnel’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MAV Personnel will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, MAV Personnel discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when MAV Personnel believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MAV Personnel, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an MAV Personnel website and have supplied your email address, MAV Personnel may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with MAV Personnel and our products. We primarily use our various product forums to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. MAV Personnel takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
