What information does Vizergy collect about me?
Vizergy user account, registration, and customer support
When you register to use a Vizergy website, create a Vizergy user account, or contact us for support or other offerings, Vizergy collects information that identifies you. This includes information such as your name, company name, email address, or payment information. We may also sometimes collect other information that does not identify you, such as which types of websites you’re interested in. Some of this information is required and other information is optional. To help keep our databases current and to provide you the most relevant content and experiences, we may combine information provided by you with information from other sources, in accordance with applicable law. For example, from these sources, we may learn about the size, industry, and other information about the company you work for.
We collect information about how you use our websites. We may collect information sent by your browser or device to our servers whenever you visit a Vizergy website. For example, your browser or device may tell us your IP address (which may tell us generally where you are located) and the type of browser and device you used. When you visit a Vizergy website, your browser may also tell us information such as the page that led you to our website and, if applicable, the search terms you typed into a search engine that led you to our website. Vizergy may collect information about how you use our websites by using cookies and similar technologies, and our servers may collect similar information when you are logged in to the website. Depending on the website, this information may be anonymous or it may be associated with you.
Also, we use automated systems to analyze your content using techniques such as machine learning in order to improve our apps and websites. This analysis may occur as the content is sent or received using an online feature of a Vizergy website, or when the content is stored on Vizergy servers.
Emails we send you may include a technology (called a web beacon) that tells Vizergy whether you have received or opened the email or clicked a link in the email. If you do not want us to collect this information from Vizergy marketing emails, you can opt out of receiving Vizergy marketing emails.
Vizergy online advertising
Vizergy advertises online in a variety of ways, including displaying Vizergy ads to you on other companies' websites and apps. We collect information such as which ads are displayed, which ads are clicked on, and on where the ad was displayed.

Does Vizergy share my personal information?
Vizergy works with companies that help us run our business. These companies provide services such as delivering customer support, processing credit card payments, and sending emails on our behalf.

They are not permitted to use your information for their own purposes.
Vizergy may also share your personal information:

- If we merge with or are acquired by another company, sell a Vizergy website or business unit, or if all or a substantial portion of our assets are acquired by another company. In those cases your information will likely be one of the assets that is transferred
We may share or publish aggregate information that doesn’t specifically identify you, such as statistical information about visitors to our websites or statistical information about how customers use Vizergy services.
Is my personal information secure?
We understand that the security of your personal information is important. We provide reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls to protect your personal information. However, despite our efforts, no security controls are 100% effective and Vizergy cannot ensure or warrant the security of your personal information. We have a data retention policy that adheres to industry best practices.
Where does Vizergy store my personal information?
Your personal information and files are stored on Vizergy’s servers and the servers of companies we hire to provide services to us.
How can I review or update my personal information or close my Vizergy user account?
Under the law of some countries, you may have the right to access the information Vizergy holds about you, correct mistakes in that information, and to delete personal information that we no longer have business reasons for retaining. The Vizergy Marketing System allows you to edit your personal information by accessing the "my account," "my profile," or a similar feature of the website you are using. Likewise, you can delete information you have stored in our websites by logging in and using the deletion functions they make available.
If you are a Vizergy client you can request that we remove your email address from our marketing database, deactivate your Vizergy user account, or provide you a copy of your personal information, please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an agent, you must submit a copy of your power of attorney or a notarized statement authorizing you to act as an agent. Please note that we need to retain certain information about you for legal and internal business reasons, such as fraud prevention. We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to provide you with the websites and apps you are eligible to use with your Vizergy user account and as needed to comply with our legal obligations and enforce our agreements.
If you are a visitor of a Vizergy client website then please contact the property directly for a personal information request.
