We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals: If you have questions about accessing or correcting your personal data please contact clientrelations@vertigent.com.

Vertigent Inc. (“Vertigent”) offers services, features, content, applications and widgets (“Services”). Vertigent stores any information you enter on our Services or provide to us in any other way. When using any of Vertigent’s Services you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Regardless of your country of residence or where you create information from, your information may be used by Vertigent in the United States or any other country where Vertigent operates. Vertigent is a division of Earth911, Inc.

When you use the Services, Vertigent automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform, including but not limited to your location, IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested. We treat this data as non-Personal Information, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. Vertigent’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Vertigent’s visitors use its Services. Vertigent only uses this data in aggregate form. We may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site, so that our partners may also understand how often people use their services and our Service.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Our servers automatically record information (“Log Data”) created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with advertisements, may also be included in Log Data.

Aggregated Statistics

Vertigent may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Vertigent may monitor the most popular search items or the most widely read articles. Vertigent may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Vertigent does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Information You Provide to Us

You may choose to provide certain information to us, including your name, phone number, address, email address, organization name, title, comments, survey responses and other volunteered information you provide to us. If you choose not to provide this information, you may not be able to receive all of the services offered by Vertigent. By providing this information you understand that you may be contacted by email, mail, or phone by Vertigent regarding your information and for marketing purposes. We will not sell or share your information with any third party.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Vertigent 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 Vertigent’s behalf or to provide services available at Vertigent’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 Vertigent’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Vertigent 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, Vertigent discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Vertigent believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Vertigent, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Vertigent website and have supplied your email address, Vertigent 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 Vertigent and our products. We primarily use our news content 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. Vertigent takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Vertigent uses cookies to help Vertigent identify and track visitors, their usage of Vertigent website, and their website access preferences. Vertigent visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Vertigent’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Vertigent’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

In the unlikely event that Vertigent goes out of business, enters bankruptcy or a majority of all of its assets were acquired, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Vertigent may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on the Services may be delivered to users by our advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Vertigent and its service providers and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.
