2. NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES
If We make any material changes in Our privacy practices that do not affect personal information already collected and stored by Us, We will post a notice on Our Site notifying users and/or Customers of the change.
3. WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
We use the information We collect from Voizzup Site Visitors, Voizzup Customers, and Customer Visitors to create a secure and personalized service.
a. Voizzup Site Visitors (which includes Customers who visit the Site)
For Voizzup Site Visitors, We collect and store Site use data, such as IP address and browser type, and We use analytics services which set and collect cookie IDs for purposes of understanding Voizzup Site Visitors’ loyalty to the Site. We use the IP addresses to assist in login and other uses related to use of the Service. Voizzup Site Visitors sessions on Our Site are also tracked for systems administration purposes and to track user trends.
We may also collect user ID and password information to enable returning Voizzup Site Visitors to log into the Site.
Finally, Voizzup Site Visitors may provide personal information to us in order to download marketing materials, or in order to opt-in to receive marketing emails. Voizzup Site Visitors can opt-out of marketing emails at any time by utilizing the unsubscribe links provided therein.
b. Customers (those who use the Voizzup Product)
For Customers specifically, We collect and store personal information that Our Customers submit to Us, such as their names and e-mail addresses and billing information, to allow Us to identify Customers, provide the Service and notify Customers of changes or updates to the Service.
If a Customer elects to provide it, We also collect and store the Customer’s phone number, which We use to assist Us in providing the Service, including to contact them in account recovery and other scenarios.
We also collect other information from Customers, such as IP address and browser type. We use the IP addresses of Customers to assist in login and other uses related to Customers’ use of the Service. Customers’ sessions on Our Site are also tracked for systems administration purposes and to track user trends. We may link IP address and other information to a Customer’s account.
We also collect Customers’ user ID and password information to enable them to log into and use the Service.
Finally, Customers are automatically opted-in to receive marketing emails from us when they register for the Service. Customers can opt-out of marketing emails by utilizing the unsubscribe links provided therein, but We may still need to send Customers e-mails relating to their accounts.
c. Customer Visitors (individuals who use media‘s mobile apps)
For Customer Visitors, when a Customer Visitor uses a Customer App, We collect certain information regarding their use of the Customer App, such as their IP address and device settings on behalf of our Customer. Their session on the Customer App will be tracked. We may use their IP address to identify the general geographic area from which they are accessing the Customer App. We remove the last octet of the IP address and therefore do not store IP addresses or link IP addresses to any personal information. We also use this information for systems administration purposes, abuse prevention and to track user trends in connection with Our provision of the Service.
As part of the Service, We collect information relating to traffic on the Customer Apps (“Traffic Data”) on which Customers choose to activate the Service. In connection with the collection of this Traffic Data, Voizzup does not collect any personal information from Customer Visitors, (i) so long as the Customer configures the Voizzup code on the Customer App in accordance with the instructions and documentation provided by Us, so that user names, device identifiers and URLs containing personal information of Customer Visitors are accordingly hashed, may be reset by the user at any time before being captured by the Service, and (ii) provided that We do collect IP addresses from Customer Visitors in order to show geolocation information but We remove the last octet of the IP address and therefore do not store IP addresses in a manner that would permit personal identification.
Traffic Data is used to provide Customers with (real-time) behaviour analytics and uptime monitoring. We may aggregate and anonymize Traffic Data with that from other apps to provide benchmarking data and other functionality, but We will not use or disclose aggregated Traffic Data in a manner that reveals the identity of a Customer or Customer App without the Customer’s express prior consent.
We also collect user IDs on behalf of Customers. Voizzup code and implementation instructions, by default, sets and reads an identifier on the Customer’s mobile app containing a randomly-generated user ID for purposes of determining unique visitor counts and visitors’ loyalty to an app. Such information can be classified as personal information under the European General Data Protection Regulation but it is not stored in a manner that would permit personal identification.

Like many other websites, We use a standard technology called “cookies.”
Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive. They can help make the Internet experience quicker and more convenient.
a. Our site
Cookies allow Customers to login without entering their user ID and password each time they use the Service.
c. Customers’ mobile apps
We also use device identifiers (equivalent of cookies) on Customer Apps; these identifiers help Us understand how Customer Visitors interact with those Customer Apps. Identifiers also allow Us to improve the Service.
If a Customer decides not allow the placement of Voizzup device identifiers on its Customer App, the loyalty data point in its Voizzup dashboard will not be accurately reported. If you choose to remove or reset Voizzup device identifiers, please refer to the documentation for your device.
d. Disabling cookies
Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. If a Customer disables cookies, it will not be able to use the data tracking capabilities of the Service.
e. For Our European Customers where the EU ePrivacy Directive applies
Voizzup uses two cookies. One cookie (PHPSESSID) is used to keep track of sessions. The other (em_cdn_uid) is used to measure the number of times an embedded element from a third party service has been used. The voizzup2 cookie will remain valid as to any given website visitor, until the visitor elects to disable it. The em_cdn_uid cookie is valid for one year.
9. LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
Our Site may contain links to third party websites. Please be aware that We are not responsible for the privacy practices of third party websites you choose to visit. If you provide any personal information directly to parties other than Us, different rules may apply to the use or disclosure of that personal information. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing your personal information to third parties.
10. THIRD PARTY ADVERTISERS
We may choose to deploy advertising on the Site and Service that is delivered to Voizzup Visitors and Customers through a third party’s advertising server. Information about Voizzup Visitors and Customers’ use of Our Service, such as the number of times a visitor has viewed an ad (but no personal information of the user), would be used in such a scenario to serve ads to Voizzup Visitors and Customers.
11. VOLUNTARY PUBLIC DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Please be aware that whenever one voluntarily discloses personal information online – e.g., on message boards, in chat areas, in file uploads, through events, etc. – that information becomes public and can be collected and used by others and indexed in search engines. We have no control over, and take no responsibility for, the use, storage or dissemination of such publicly disclosed personal information. By posting personal information online in public forums, users may receive unsolicited messages from other parties.
12. PRIVACY PROTECTION FOR CHILDREN
In compliance with applicable European data privacy laws, We do not knowingly provide access to the Service to persons under the age of sixteen (16). If We learn that any user of the Service is under the age of sixteen (16) and that consent is not given or authorised by the holder of parental responsibility over the user, We will take appropriate steps to remove that user’s information from Our records and We will restrict that individual from future access to the Service. Please contact us at support@voizzup if you are aware that we may have inadvertently collected personal information from a child.
