Privacy Policy

We recognize that your data is very personal and sensitive. This Privacy Policy explains our commitment to protecting your privacy, with regard to your use of vaeplatform.com ("Web Site") and the Vae Platform service available from the Web Site ("Service").

Information We Collect

  • There are two main types of information we collect: (1) information you input yourself once logged in to the Service, which is primarily the content, design, and source code for the website(s) associated with your Vae account ("User Content"); and (2) information customarily logged by web server software, including the date and time of your visit, the originating IP address, the pages and images requested ("Usage Data").
  • Additionally, we collect information from those who communicate with us via e-mail or our website, and information volunteered by consumers, such as the information you provide during registration ("Registration and Billing Data"), and contact form submissions and E-Mails ("Correspondance Data").

How Information is Used

  • "User Content" is only used to provide you with the Vae Platform service. We will not access this data for any other purpose, except as provided below.
  • "Usage Data" and "Correspondance Data" is used to help us understand how the Service is being used and to help us improve the Service.
  • "Registration and Billing Data" is used for billing purposes and to notify you about important service-related notices.
  • E-Mail addresses collected will be used to communicate with you regarding the Service. We communicate such things as announcements of new features, changes to Terms of Use/Privacy Policy, information about systems outages, and other Service-related announcements.
  • Unless you request otherwise, we may use the name of your website and screenshots from your website in advertisments promoting Vae.
  • All information may be disclosed when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the Terms of Use and policies governing the Service and applicable laws or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Service.
  • Due to the nature of the job, employees and contractors of Action Verb, LLC may see your User Content while performing Service administration (for example, restoring a set of data from a failed hard disk). These people have signed confidentiality agreements and, if they fail to preserve this confidence, they are subject to disciplinary action, including losing their job, and potential criminal prosecution.

Technology

  • Wherever possible, we secure your browsing sessions with SSL, to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, and message forgery. If SSL is enabled, you will see a lock icon in your browser. Secure sessions are enabled by default for all use of Vae except for FTP, Subversion, and E-Mail connections. Please be sure to explicitly enable SSL in your E-Mail client to ensure that your E-Mails are securely transmitted to you.
  • Cookies: Use of the Service requires support for cookies, small pieces of data that are stored on your computer's hard drive and transmitted back to the Service with each web page request. A cookie simply identifies your browser to the Service by assigning it a unique ID number, which enables us to associate your session with your account.
