This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for the website of Vaalin Studio. This privacy statement applies solely to Personal Information collected at the Vaalin Studio Website. By using the Vaalin Studio Website, you expressly consent to the information handling practices described in this Privacy Statement.
The following Policy outlines the information Vaalin Studio will collect and how we will use that information.
COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION: Information is gathered on a voluntary basis. If you decide to provide us with your personal information, you should know that we may store some/all information to further understand our client base and deliver the best online experience. Some examples of personal information may include your name, email address, phone numbers, credit card information, physical or mailing address, tax identification numbers, birthday, gender, occupations and other information necessary to join us and become a Vaalin Studio Client or online customer.
YOUR ACCESS TO AND CONTROL OVER INFORMATION: You may opt out of any future contacts from us by e-mail at any time by following the “opt out” or “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of our emails to you.
THE USE OF VISITOR AND PHOTOGRAPHER INFORMATION: Personal information is gathered for purposes of managing and expanding our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our Vaalin Studio Clients and online visitors. We may also utilize your personal information to inform you of new services or products, detect and protect against errors, fraud or other criminal activity, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems or customize your experience. When Permitted or required by law we may share your personal information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation or to explore fraud that has already taken place. The information submitted or provided to these entities is not for marketing purposes. We may also reassign such information in the course of mergers, company divestitures, or any closure.
DIRECT OR INDIRECT LINKS TO OTHER SITES: Since third-party sites are owned and operated independently, Vaalin Studio cannot ensure the safeguard of any personal information that you provide to a third-party website that links to or from any of our websites. These third-party sites may have their own separate privacy policies that are beyond our control. As such, we cannot assume responsibility or liability whatsoever for practices, actions or policies of these third-party sites.
WEBSITE SECURITY: We have secured Personal Information only to the extent of the security systems provided by our third party hosting service. We have required that our third party hosting service use reasonable security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of Personal Information. We take certain precautions to protect the information of registered users. Wherever we collect information that we deem is sensitive (such as account information and credit card information), we will deploy a secure sockets link (SSL) or other encryption technologies to transmit that data from a user’s computer to the servers of our third party hosting service providers’ servers in a more secure way. You can verify whether we are using SSL or other data security by looking for a closed lock icon on your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. We may not use SSL or other encryption to collect your name, address, phone number or email address for routine information requests about our activities. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration.
Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. We do not assume any liability to third parties for your use of our website or for information about others you include in your profile or contacts. Please keep your password and login credentials secure.
If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Vaalin Studio Website or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of our website. If a security systems breach occurs, Vaalin Studio may post a notice on our homepage or elsewhere on our website and may send email to you at the email address you have provided to us.
