vSpatial Privacy Policy

Updated: 2019.04.29

Introduction

At vSpatial (“we,” or “us”), we believe you should know what data we collect from you and how we use it. That is the purpose of this Privacy Policy. It explains what data we collect about you and why, what we do with the data, and how we handle that data. We also explain what choices you have with respect to the data.

You should read this policy in full, but there are a few key things that we hope you understand and take away from it:

  • When you use our website, even if you are just browsing, or use our Services, we receive some personal information about you like the type of device you are using and your IP address.
  • You may sign up for a user account to use our Services and provide additional information to us like your name, email address, company, and role within the company. We use this information to provide services to you, to administer our systems, and enable additional features of the Services.
  • We do not market to or target persons in the European Union or EFTA States. vSpatial has no presence or business relationships in the EU and is located solely in the United States of America, which does not provide the same rights as those specified in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
  • You can contact us at contact@vspatial.com if you have questions about this Policy, or how we collect or process your Personal Data.

Data Storage, Transfer, Retention, and Deletion

In Short: We process your data in the United States, keep your data only as long as necessary for legitimate business purposes, and safeguard your data using industry standard practices.

Data Storage and Transfers

Data submitted to vSpatial will be transferred to, processed, and stored in the United States. When you use the Services on your computing device, user content you save will be stored locally on that device and synced with our servers. If you post or transfer any information to or through our Services, you are agreeing to such information, including Personal Data and user content, being hosted and accessed in the United States.

Safeguards

When you give us personal information, we take steps to make sure that it’s treated securely.

Non-sensitive details (your name, email address, etc.) are sent normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

We use industry standard encryption to protect your data in transit. This is commonly referred to as transport layer security (TLS) or secure socket layer (SSL) technology.

Once we receive your data, we protect it on our servers using a combination of physical, technical, and logical security safeguards. The security of data stored on your computing devices is solely within your control and we recommend you take the appropriate steps to secure your computing devices that you use in connection with our website and Services.
