TVision Website Privacy Policy

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to explain how data collected through this website is used. This Privacy Policy only applies to data collected through the TVisionInsights.com website, or other websites operated by TVision Insights and linked to this website (the “website” or collectively, “websites”).  This website is operated by TVision Insights, Inc. (“we” “us” or “our”).

1. Our Collection And Use Of Your Information on this Website

This website is primarily directed to our customers, prospective customers, and others interested in using our services or working with us.  When you visit our website, we may collect certain information from you. This information falls into two categories: 1) information that identifies you individually (such as name, address, or email address), which you may voluntarily supply when you log into our website (“Personal Information”), and 2) information collected passively, as you navigate our websites, such as a unique “cookie” ID or IP address (“Tracking Information”).  We describe below how we use each of those categories of information.

Personal Information You Provide to Us:

We may retain and use for our business purposes Personal Information (and any other information) you provide to us, including in order to contact you.  For instance, if you provide us with your email address, we may send you offers or newsletters, through a variety of online and offline channels.  (We will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of these communications.)   We may also use the information to analyze how you, or how users and customers generally, engage with us and our website.

The information we may use in these ways includes information that you post to our website (such as where we offer you the opportunity to post to or comment on blog posts we may publish).  This information may also be publicly accessible in search engines, so do not post anything you want to keep confidential.

We may also use the information for any purpose for which it was collected.  For instance, if we conduct a survey on our website, we will use that information to analyze the survey results and apply them to our marketing or business purposes.

Tracking Information:  We may use technologies to track your use of our website and to tailor your web experience.  We may, for instance, use technologies to send you display advertising when you view our website or other websites.  These technologies include “cookies,” which we describe immediately below.

We may combine any information that we collect from you, whether collected directly or passive from you.

2. Use of Cookies on Our Website

Cookies are small, unique strings of code stored on your computer that make it easier for you to use our site and help us improve site functionality and security. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them or until they expire).  We, and third party cookie-based ad platforms we may work with, use cookies to automatically collect information about your computer when you visit our websites, and automatically store it in log files. This may include the type of browser software you use, the operating system you are running, the website that referred you, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address (from which your general location may be inferred).

We may use our own proprietary cookies (set from our own web domain), as well as cookies hosted by third party vendors such as ad or analytics vendors and partners.  Third party cookies generally employ unique identifiers (often randomly generated) to help advertisers customize users’ web experiences, based on the users’ likely interests. They may be used to tailor ad content on websites you visit.  They may collect data such as your browser type, your operating system, Web pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, and other clickstream data. We use these cookies to retarget information and offers to you about our services:  for instance, if you view a page on our website regarding an event or conference we are hosting, we might use a third party ad partners to send you an ad about the event when you visit another website.

When you visit our websites or open an email you have received from us, we or one of our ad partners may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable us to send you ads about our services, customize our services and gather analytics about our web traffic.  Additionally, emails we send to you may contain a bit of code known as a "web beacon,” also called a “pixel” or “web pixel.” This code helps us understand the time and date when a user opened an email sent by us, and when he/she has used a link within the email to visit a website, thus allowing us to collect analytics about our traffic, customize our services, and send better ads about our services.   These electronic images also may help us measure how effective our email campaigns are by, for instance, counting the number of individuals who visit our website or open an email we send.  For example, the Google Analytics service on this website provides reports to us about how many users came to the website, and what links they may have used to get here.  (To opt out of Google Analytics, please go here.)

You can often disable our web beacons by turning images "off" in your email client (e.g., Outlook, Outlook Express).  Please see your email client settings for more information.

Your browser likewise may permit you to reject or delete cookies, but this may prevent proper working of our website.  This website does not currently display third party advertising, but if you want to opt-out of receiving cookies related to interest-based advertising (including receiving “re-targeted” ads) please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ or http://aboutads.info – two opt-out “portals” that are operated by leading industry self-regulatory groups.  (We provide this link as a courtesy to privacy-conscious users – we are not responsible for the providers on those websites.)

3. How We Share Information You Provide To Us

Vendors and other Service Providers: We share information that we collect or that you provide to us with a range of service providers.  These service providers may, for instance, receive information for purposes of tech support, customer support, network and hosting services, billing and collections, email and marketing services (including for data enhancement), customer or website analytics, or other operations related to our business. We also work with third party ad and data vendors who may collect and read unique identifiers associated with browsers and devices, such as cookies:  we describe these technologies in more detail, in Section 3, above.

Disclosure Required By Law:  If you submit information to us that is requested by any government entity, we will cooperate in good faith with such requests in our sole discretion. We will also share such data, in our discretion, if we believe we have cause to protect ourselves or any other party. We will provide any information we hold as required in good faith to comply with legal process such as a subpoena or discovery demand.

In addition, we may share with third parties and/or service providers de-identified information about users visits to our website, which may include actual or inferred demographics, interests, and other online habits.

4. Children's Privacy

If you are under 13, please do not provide us with any information. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information about children. Our systems are not designed for use by children under the age of 13.  If we learn we have collected or obtained Personal Information of someone under 13, we will delete that information from our database absent an important and permissible reason to keep it.  If you believe that this has occurred, please contact us at privacy@tvisioninsights.com.

5. Data Security

We take seriously the security of the data we maintain. We take what we believe are reasonable precautions to protect against unauthorized access to our systems and to prevent data from being disclosed to unauthorized parties. However, no security precautions are 100 percent foolproof: we (like any website) therefore cannot guarantee unconditionally the protection of all information that you provide will always be safe from breach or hacking.

6. Business Transitions

If we ever go through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your Personal Information and tracking information will likely be among the assets transferred, and that information may also be shared during due diligence for any such transaction. If that occurs we will require an acquiring company or merger agreement to uphold the material terms of this privacy statement (subject to our and their right to make changes, see below) including honoring requests for account deletion.

7. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time, in our sole discretion. Generally, any changes will go into effect on the date they are posted. Should we make a material changes to this Privacy Policy, they will go into effect within a reasonable time period from the time they are posted to the website. In our discretion, we may also provide additional reasonable notice through other means, such as through emailed notice.

We retain that personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected (for instance, to provide prospective customers with information about our services).
