Protecting your privacy is our priority.
By using the VORTEX IoT websites or mobile applications, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
VORTEX IoT may collect personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, phone number, address (collectively Contact information) and websites where you have accounts (Traffic information). We collect this information when your create an account, send us an email with an inquiry, and log in on the VORTEX IoT website or mobile application. The collection of this personally identifiable information is frequently required for registering on new websites. Users will no longer need to type login information on each new site that integrates VORTEX IoT. We track logins to help understand where our users are getting the most value out of VORTEX IoT and allocate our resource accordingly. We also automatically collect certain information when you use VORTEX IoT such as operating system, device and browser type in order to better support our customers (collectively Service information). This information is not treated as personal information unless it is combined with any personally identifiable information mentioned above. When purchasing VORTEX IoT Services, you will be required to provide additional information that may include a credit card number or other banking or payment information (Billing information). For some of our services, VORTEX IoT might let you upload or add your own content in the form of configuration files or other types of content (collectively Service data).
The Contact Information, Service Data, Billing Information, Traffic Information and Service Information may be referred to below, collectively, as the “Data”. “Personally Identifiable Data” means that data which directly, or used in conjunction with other provided information, enables the identification of a specific individual.
VORTEX IoT uses Service Data only in order to provide you with the service and keeps this data available only to the user that has generated or third party that the user has agreed to grant access to.
If you are not a customer of VORTEX IoT (i.e., if you have not signed up to receive the Services), VORTEX IoT will use your Contact Information only for the purpose for which such information was provided. For example, if you have signed up to receive product information from VORTEX IoT, we will use your Contact Information only to send you that information. You may always opt-out of the receipt of any of those communications.
VORTEX IoT does not share or disclose any of your Personally Identifiable Data except as described in this Section.
Agents, consultants and related third parties: VORTEX IoT uses third party vendors to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include data storage services, database maintenance services and payment processing. When VORTEX IoT employs such third party vendors to perform services on its behalf, VORTEX IoT will only provide them with the Personally Identifiable Data that they need to perform their specific function. Each third party vendor is required to keep such Personally Identifiable Data confidential and not to use such Personally Identifiable Data for any purpose other than providing services to VORTEX IoT.
Business transfers: VORTEX IoT reserves the right to sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personally Identifiable Data may be part of the transferred assets. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer or successor of VORTEX IoT may continue to use your Personally Identifiable Data as set forth in this policy.
Legal requirements and other circumstances: VORTEX IoT may disclose Personally Identifiable Data if required by law or if it believes in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with a legal obligation, (b) protect and defend the rights or property of VORTEX IoT, or (c) to protect the property or safety of users of the VORTEX IoT Site or Services or any third party. If VORTEX IoT is required by law to disclose any of your Personally Identifiable Data, then we will use reasonable efforts to provide you with notice of that disclosure requirement, unless we are prohibited from doing so by statute, subpoena or court or administrative order. In addition, if VORTEX IoT does not believe the disclosure request has been properly issued, then VORTEX IoT will object to such request.
VORTEX IoT Service: VORTEX IoT enables users to provide Personally Identifiable Data directly to third party applications and services. When you register at a new site that integrates VORTEX IoT you agree to have part of your personal information (name, email) disclosed automatically. However, for any other Personal information such a third party might require, we will notify you of what is the nature of information required and you must give permission in order for us to share it. If you have signed up to VORTEX IoT, you agree that VORTEX IoT may disclose Personally Identifiable Data as contemplated by the VORTEX IoT service.
VORTEX IoT takes reasonable precautions such as policy-based access control to protect Data in our possession from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access. VORTEX IoT follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the Data, both during transmission and once received by VORTEX IoT. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While VORTEX IoT strives to protect your Data, VORTEX IoT does not guarantee its security.
Our service is not directed to children under thirteen and does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use this website. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under thirteen, we will take the appropriate steps to delete such information form our files as soon as possible.
Deactivation removes information about the specific phone. The user can reactive an account on a different phone. Deactivation will not completely delete your VORTEX IoT account.
You can request information about all personally information we have stored about you by contacting us at privacy@VORTEX IoT.io. The same applies to your request to have all these Contact information deleted.
