Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to vidipulse.com. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that is collected offline or by any third-party websites or services that you may access through the Services.

This Privacy Policy explains how VidiPulse collects and uses data and information that may identify or can be directly associated with an individual person (“Personal Information”). VidiPulse respects your right to privacy. Your ability to make informed choices about the uses of your information is important to us. This Privacy Policy explains VidiPulse’s policy regarding the collection, use, disclosure and protection of any information we receive including your Personal Information (if any).

VidiPulse provides a platform where content publishers (“Publisher”) can create, embed and share interactive Video content units, including but not limited to: Video quizzes, surveys and other features (“Platform”), that can be distributed and offered on the content publisher’s website, application, mobile app or service (“Publisher Site”) and the end users of the Publisher Site can interact with (“End Users”). In this policy “Publisher” refers to any third party that downloads, implements or makes use of the Platform and/or the Services.

This Privacy Policy applies both to Personal Information collected from employees of Publishers (“Publisher Employees”) and End Users (collectively with Publisher’s Employees and those accessing the VidiPulse.com website, “User” or “Users”).

Information VidiPulse Collects from End Users

VidiPulse uses the Platform and/or Services to collect information regarding End Users’ activities and operations that interact with the Platform or that interact with any content that may be available through the Platform. Such information includes IP-address, Session ID, browser type, mobile or desktop ID, referrer, user language and feedback or answers provided by the End User to any interactive content unit made available with the Platform. Such information may qualify as Personal Information in some End Users’ jurisdictions, however, we do not make any use of such data to directly identify individuals or to associate it with individuals.

Information VidiPulse collects from Publishers

In order to use the Platform or Services, Publishers have to enroll on VidiPulse’s website and create an account by providing certain data, such as a user name and email-address and certain other information that may be provided from Publisher to VidiPulse. VidiPulse will also create a unique user ID to each Publisher. Where this data is attributable to a certain Publisher Employee, this may also qualify Personal Information that is collected by VidiPulse.

Information VidiPulse collects from visitors of the VidiPulse.com website

When you access the VidiPulse.com website, we may collect information from the computer or device that you use to access the Services, such as your operating system type, browser type, domain and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone in which your computer or device is located.

How VidiPulse Protects Information

VidiPulse follows applicable laws and generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to VidiPulse by implementing adequate technical and organizational protection measures, both during transmission and once VidiPulse receives it. These measures will be continuously adjusted and updated in accordance with current industry standards. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while VidiPulse strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect Personal Information, VidiPulse cannot guarantee its absolute security.

How VidiPulse Uses Information

Where required by applicable laws, VidiPulse will only process, use or share User’s Personal Information with third parties with User’s explicit permission or as described in this Privacy Policy. VidiPulse will only disclose Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy or where required by law, regulation, subpoena or court order. VidiPulse uses Personal Information to the extent necessary for internal purposes – for example, in connection with offering the Services, to help diagnose problems with VidiPulse’s servers, to make VidiPulse’s Services more useful, or to improve the Platform.

Use of Publisher’s Employee Personal Information:

VidiPulse collects, processes and uses Customer’s Employee Personal Information for purposes of administering the Services, and to improve the experience of the VidiPulse Services.

Use of End User’s Personal Information:

VidiPulse may use information it collects, including Personal Information, to provide the End User with the Services and in order to provide End Users with advertising that VidiPulse reasonably believes may be more useful or interesting to the End User. The Personal Information collected by VidiPulse will not be connected by VidiPulse to any other personal information collected by third parties for advertisement purposes. In addition, by analyzing all information VidiPulse receives, including all information concerning End Users and their interaction with the Platform and content made available through the Platform, VidiPulse may irreversibly compile aggregated statistical information across a variety of mobile applications and End Users (“Statistical Information”). Statistical Information helps understand trends and customer needs so that new products and services can be considered and so existing products and services can be improved and tailored to customer desires. Statistical Information is anonymous and does not, in and of itself, identify any specific end user or customer of VidiPulse. VidiPulse may share such Statistical Information with its partners or any third party, without restriction, on commercial terms that VidiPulse can determine in its sole discretion.

Personal Information is not transferred or disclosed to third parties other than as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Any cookie will be deleted within one month after it has been placed unless configured otherwise. Most Web browsers are initially configured to accept cookies, but the User can change this setting so his browser either refuses all cookies or informs him when a cookie is being sent.

Cookies placed on Publishers’ computers:

VidiPulse also uses cookies to help personalize Publisher’s VidiPulse experience. These could be “persistent” cookies that may be used to help save Publisher’s settings and customizations across website visits. Also, if Publisher logs in to VidiPulse, such a cookie will be used to recognize Publisher as a valid user so Publisher will not need to login each time using VidiPulse.

VidiPulse uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google places cookies on User’s computer to analyze User’s use of the Platform and the VidiPulse website. The information collected by the cookie is transferred to and stored on Google servers located in the US. VidiPulse is using commercially reasonable efforts to leverage the IP-anonymization service of Google, i.e. a service offered by Google whereby a User’s IP address will be shortened before transfer to the US. After shortening the IP addresses, the collected data cannot be directly matched to a User. Google will process and use the collected information on behalf of VidiPulse in order to analyze User’s use of the Platform and the VidiPulse website, to compose respective reports and to provide certain other services to VidiPulse related to the use of the Platform and the VidiPulse website. The IP address collected by the cookie will not be collated with other Google data. User can change the settings of his browser so it refuses all cookies of third parties. Also, User is free to delete any existing cookies at any time with future effect. User can also contradict the collection and use of data by the Google cookie by installing the browser plugin available for download under the following hyperlink: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. For further information regarding Google Analytics please see examples of Google’s terms of use (https://www.google.com/analytics/terms), data protection overview (http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html) and privacy policy (www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy).

VidiPulse may share some of the information collected via the Platform with certain trusted partners and/or technology platforms in order to present personalized advertisements to Users. In such cases, the transfer and storage practices of the information shall be governed by the policies provided by such partners and/or technology platforms.

VidiPulse uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that all its service providers will be subject to nondisclosure and non-use obligations and bound to process Personal Information solely as instructed by VidiPulse in a separate Data Processing Agreement as required under applicable law. Nevertheless, some countries where VidiPulse’s service providers are located may have levels of protection of personal and other information which are not as high as in the User’s country of residence or business.

VidiPulse may transfer its databases containing Personal Information of Users in connection with a sale of its business or assets or any part of them that requires the use of the databases.

VidiPulse may transfer Personal Information to other countries whose privacy laws may not be as protective as in your place of residence.
