This policy covers how Valant treats personal information that Valant collects and receives, including information related to your past use of Valant products and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Valant does not own or control, or to people that Valant does not employ or manage.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
Valant collects personal information when you register with Valant, when you use Valant products or services, when you visit Valant pages or the pages of certain Valant partners, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes. Valant may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
When you register, we ask for information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry and personal interests. Once you register with Valant and sign in to our services, you are no longer anonymous to us. Valant collects information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners, including information about your use of products and services that we offer.
Valant automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, Valant cookie information and the page you request. Valant may use information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
Valant will not contact children under age 13 about special offers or for marketing purposes. Valant does not ask a child under age 13 for more personal information, as a condition of participation, than is reasonably necessary to participate in a given activity or promotion.
INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
Valant does not rent, sell or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission or under the following circumstances: We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with Valant under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help Valant communicate with you about offers from Valant and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
Valant may, from time to time, display targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area. Valant does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad, you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.
Valant may set and access Valant cookies on your computer.
Valant may let other companies that show advertisements on some of our pages set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to Valant’s cookies.
We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to the Valant service, such as service announcements, administrative messages and the Valant Newsletter, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.
Confidentiality and Security
We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. We have physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect personal information about you. Valant may update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your Valant account or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
