Viba Fima Inc. and its affiliates (also referred to as "We", "Us" or "Our") define PUBLIC INFORMATION as any information you provide for general publication. Examples of PUBLIC INFORMATION are your opinions, referrals, web pages and links, and any information about yourself you specifically submit to us for publication within our website.
We define PRIVATE INFORMATION as that information which is not normally available to the public and includes personal data such as your name, your postal mailing address and your email address.
We define CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION as that information you provide to us for the use of the personalized services on theVibary. An example of CONFIDENTIAL information is your Vibary password.
We might collect public, private and confidential information about you or from you from the following sources:
More specific information sources:
Anyone who wants to learn what's going on in their community may use the Vibary as a Guest of the Vibary. We do not collect any personal information about Vibary guests. They are anonymous to us because no registration is required and no personal information is entered. Guests receive many benefits of the Vibary but Vibary Members receive all the benefits of Vibary membership.
Members may enroll in great programs such as "Loot-the-Week" (for a chance to win free stuff) and receive notices from us about upcoming community events. In order to take advantage of the Vibary web sites' programs, you must first complete the registration process. During registration you are required to give your email address, your name, and postal mailing address. This information is deemed PRIVATE information. Your Vibary membership is associated with a username and password (both created by you). The username is PUBLIC information because it can be published alongside anything you submit for publication on the Vibary. Your password is CONFIDENTIAL information.
Log files and Cookies
We do track your usage of the Vibary. The purpose is to enhance your experience with the site. The software that serves the Web pages automatically logs all Web page requests into log files. We analyze the log files to administer the Vibary site, identifying bottlenecks and trends, among other things. We consider this information PRIVATE information. As such we use the tracking information in an aggregate manner, not linked to personally identifiable information. One exception is when our system is hacked into. In this case, we will use all the tracking information we have collected to identify the transgressor.
Viba Fima does not claim ownership of the PUBLIC INFORMATION that you submit to the Vibary. By submitting this information to Viba Fima, you have granted Viba Fima a world-wide, nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right (including moral rights) to reproduce, modify, aggregate and publish the information for the purposes of marketing, product development, displaying, distributing and promoting on and throughout Viba Fima's Internet properties and alliances.
We reserve the right to use PRIVATE information for marketing and product development purposes, after ensuring that aggregation and filtering procedures have been set up to protect Vibary members' anonymity.
CONFIDENTIAL information is used to conduct business on the Vibary. We never use such information for marketing nor product development purposes, in house or in partnership with a third party.
We maintain relationships with multiple outside organizations or third-parties. These third parties assist us in increasing the value of your Vibary membership. How we use your information is dependent upon the type of relationship we have with these third parties. Outlined below are specific explanations of our policies toward third-party information sharing.
Third Party -- Information Provider
We may purchase or procure information about you from third-party information providers. Such information will supplement the PUBLIC and PRIVATE information that you provide or that we collect from your use of the Vibary.
We reserve the right to combine the information contributed by these third party information providers with PUBLIC and PRIVATE information collected through the use of the Vibary.
Third Party -- Agents
We employ third party companies and individuals as agents to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include direct mail marketing, credit card settlements and outsourced customer services. The agents may have access to your PRIVATE and CONFIDENTIAL information but solely to perform their functions. They are bound by contract not to use it for any other purposes.
Third Party -- Business Partner
We reserve the right to combine and aggregate PUBLIC information with your PRIVATE information to determine what products and services may be beneficial to Vibary members. Our goal is to deliver the right offers to the right Vibary members, who we believe will find the offers of value. The development of an offer is managed under strict conditions designed to safeguard the security and privacy of our Vibary members. We will not provide your PRIVATE information directly to third parties. When we partner with third-party business partners to provide specific products and services to Vibary members, we may use both PUBLIC and PRIVATE information. However, our business partners cannot contact Vibary members directly. Instead we will contact Vibary members on their behalf. (As an example we could partner with a Travel Agent to offer you an outstanding vacation package with huge savings, exclusively available to our Vibary members.) In this way we do not share this information with our third-party business partners and we control how you are contacted to ensure your privacy.
You, as a Vibary member, will control whether you want to respond to the offers. Remember, if you decide to take advantage of an offer from our business partner and become their customer, the business partner may wish to independently send future offers to you. In this case, you will need to inform them separately if you wish to decline their invitation to receive future offers.
We never provide CONFIDENTIAL information to our business partners, neither directly nor indirectly.
Third Party -- Law Enforcement
We will cooperate fully with all Federal, State and Local law enforcement agencies as required by the law or legal process to provide information about a Vibary member. If properly subpoenaed, we will provide PUBLIC, PRIVATE and CONFIDENTIAL information to the requesting law enforcement agency.
We expect to employ the following types of correspondence:
The Vibary web sites contain links to other sites that are external to the Vibary. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites. We encourage you to be aware of when you leave our sites and to read the privacy statements of each and every external web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by us at the Vibary web sites.
We take every precaution to protect your PRIVATE and CONFIDENTIAL information, both online and off-line.
Note: By implementing a strong security policy we are reducing the risk of someone misusing or altering your data. However, we do not provide a 100% guarantee that this can never happen.
Customer information is considered a business asset that is customarily transferred during a business transaction, such as an acquisition of Viba Fima or the Vibary web sites by another party. Our policy for the transferance of this confidential information is commonly known as an "opt-out" policy. After giving you notice, we may transfer your PUBLIC and PRIVATE information, as a part of this business transaction without your permission. You can have your information removed from the transfer, "opt-out", by canceling your Vibary membership before a deadline to be determined and communicated to you in the event of this business transaction.
Our policy of transfering confidential information is commonly known as an "opt-in" policy. We will not transfer your CONFIDENTIAL information unless you give us your permission, after receiving notice of the transfer, to transfer your CONFIDENTIAL information. Without your explicit request (opting-in), your CONFIDENTIAL information will be removed from our records before we transfer this asset to the acquiring party. Note: If you have your CONFIDENTIAL data deleted and continue to use the Vibary services after the asset transfer, the new owner may require you to re-enter your CONFIDENTIAL information.
Most, if not all, PUBLIC, PRIVATE and CONFIDENTIAL information that you provide to us can be edited by you. You may sign into the Vibary and modify your PRIVATE and CONFIDENTIAL information at any time.
You can cancel your free Vibary membership at any time. If you ever do so, we will delete your PRIVATE and CONFIDENTIAL information from any online access. We may keep that information in off-line backups, until it is purged through our normal business processes. However, your Vibary membership cancellation will not automatically remove your PUBLIC information (including your username) from our business systems. We retain a license to use this information and will remove it only at our discretion. See our Terms of Usage.
