What Personal Information VIKTRE Collects
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual, such as your name, address, telephone number or email address (“Personal Information”). We collect Personal Information when you voluntarily provide it through our Applications, or when you provide it to us through other means. For example, we may collect Personal Information when you:
The Personal Information we may collect may include:
You may not provide us with the Personal Information of another person, or post someone else’s Personal Information as Shared Content (defined below), unless you have the consent of that person. Similarly, you are responsible for complying with all applicable laws when you communicate or interact with another person through our Applications.
How VIKTRE Uses and Discloses Personal Information
If you choose to make a purchase using functionality that may be available through the Applications, your payment information is processed by one of our third party service providers. VIKTRE itself does not receive your payment information.
If you have provided us with your Personal Information, but later decide you no longer want us to send you any information, you may unsubscribe by using the unsubscribe function in our commercial communications.
We may transfer your Personal Information to third party service providers that assist us with carrying out these purposes. For example, we may use a data processing contractor to operate computer systems on our behalf, and we use a third party to process payments. When Personal Information is transferred to a such a third party service provider, that party will be contractually bound to use such Personal Information only to carry out the services we have requested, and to provide protection for the Personal Information.
We reserve the right to transfer any Personal Information we have about you in the event that we merge with or are acquired by a third party or should any such transaction be proposed. We may also use or disclose your Personal Information to third parties, if we have reason to believe that using or disclosing such information is necessary to: (i) conduct investigations of possible breaches of law; (ii) identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating an agreement they have with us; (iii) investigate security breaches or cooperate with government authorities pursuant to a legal matter or (iv) to protect our rights, safety or property. Lastly, we may disclose your Personal Information for any other purpose to which you consent.
Personal Information collected online may also be combined with information you have provided to VIKTRE through other sources such as over the telephone.
Public Profiles and Forums
Certain features and/or portions of our Applications may permit you to upload, post or otherwise transmit content that you have created (the “User Content”), or publish or share User Content in a manner that is visible to other users of the Application (“Shared Content”). For example, when you create an Account, you may choose to make your Profile, and the information you choose to place in it, such as your name, biographical information, and photos, visible to other users of the Applications. Such Shared Content may be located using search features that may be available through the Applications, or by using popularly available search engines.
You (and your parent or legal guardian on your behalf if you are a Minor) understand that any Shared Content you choose to share via the Applications may be copied, used, modified, or distributed by any other users, and that this cannot be controlled by VIKTRE. Further, you (and your parent or legal guardian on your behalf if you are a Minor) understand that once you have posted or published Shared Content, while you have the option of removing your Shared Content from the public areas of our Applications, it cannot always be withdrawn from the internet, for example, if you or other Application users have shared or posted it to websites we do not control. Please consider carefully what Shared Content you choose to share, if you do not wish your personal information to be shared or publically available in this manner, please do not include it in the Shared Content you choose to share. You should not post or publish sensitive information, such as financial information, in your Shared Content.
You (and your parent or legal guardian on your behalf if you are a Minor) assume all risks associated with your Shared Content – including, but not limited to, any third party’s reliance on its quality, accuracy, or reliability, or any disclosure of information in your Shared Content that makes you or others personally identifiable. You (and your parent or legal guardian on your behalf if you are a Minor) hereby agree that VIKTRE has no responsibility or liability whatsoever for any such activities.
Sharing Information on Your Social Media Profiles
Our Applications may provide you with a means to share content across your other third party social media profiles. For example, at our discretion, our Applications may allow you the ability to link your VIKTRE Account to your accounts, profiles, or feeds on other social media sites. When you post Shared Content on your Account, you may choose to use the Application functionality to share that Shared Content on your linked social media accounts, profiles, or feeds, allowing you to quickly disseminate Shared Content to your followers and friends on different social media platforms. When a user of another social media site clicks on Shared Content you have posted to that site through our Application, they will be directed to your post on our Application.
