Information we collect and how we use it
We offer a number of services that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us. In order to provide our full range of services, we may collect the following types of information:

  • Information provided by the User: When you sign up for a ValpoLife.com membership we ask for personal information such as your name, email address and what you would like your password to be. We encourage you to use your real name and include your address so we can ensure you receive all member benefits, discounts, and prizes from ValpoLife.com and it's participating area merchants.
  • Cookies As it is standard for most websites, when you visit ValpoLife.com, we send one or more cookies – a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser, tracking user trends such as how people search. ValpoLife.com also uses cookies in its advertising services to help advertisers and publishers serve and manage advertisements across the web. We may set a cookie in your browser when you visit a website and view or click on an advertisement. ValpoLife.com visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using ValpoLife’s web pages, with the drawback that certain features of the ValpoLife website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
  • Log information – When you access ValpoLife.com (like most websites), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, ValpoLife.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate. This includes the number of unique visitors to the site, the number of page views collectively, the number of ad impressions displayed for ValpoLife, and all other information advertisers desire to know to base their advertising decisions upon. ValpoLife.com does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
  • User communications – When you send email or other communications to ValpoLife, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests, and improve our services.
  • Affiliated sites – We offer some of our services in connection with other web sites. Personal information that you provide to those sites may be sent to ValpoLife.com in order to deliver the service. We process such information in accordance with this privacy policy. This Privacy Policy applies to ValpoLife.com only. We do not exercise control over the sites that ValpoLife.com may link to or from. These sites may have their own policies, and may place on the viewer's computer their own cookies or other files, collect data or solicit personal information from you. The affiliated sites may have different privacy practices and we encourage you to read their Privacy Policies as well.
  • Links – ValpoLife.com may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve the quality of our customized content and advertising.

ValpoLife.com only processes personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy and/or the supplementary privacy notices for specific services. In addition to the above, such purposes include:

  • Providing our services to users, including the display of customized content and advertising;
  • Auditing, research, and analysis in order to maintain, protect, and improve our services;
  • Ensuring the technical functioning of our network; and
  • Developing new services.

Choices for personal information
When you sign up for a particular service that requires registration, we ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use.

If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or in the specific service privacy notices, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. We will not collect or use your personal information for purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or in the supplementary service privacy notices, unless we have obtained your prior consent.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some ValpoLife.com features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. You can decline to submit personal information to any of our services; however, ValpoLife.com may not then be able to provide those services to you.

Certain visitors to ValpoLife.com websites choose to interact in ways that require ValpoLife.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ValpoLife.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with ValpoLife.com are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, ValpoLife.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction. ValpoLife.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in the Privacy Policy. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Information sharing
ValpoLife.com only shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside of ValpoLife.com in the following limited circumstances:

  • We have your consent. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
  • We provide such information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies or other trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on our behalf. We require that these parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  • We have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of ValpoLife, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

If ValpoLife.com becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, we will provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different Privacy Policy.

We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregate, non-personal information, such as the number of users who, for example, clicked on a particular advertisement. Such information does not identify you individually.

Information security
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

We restrict access to personal information to ValpoLife.com employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Data integrity
ValpoLife.com processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Privacy Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.

ValpoLife.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on ValpoLife’s behalf or to provide services available at ValpoLife’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using ValpoLife’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. ValpoLife.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, ValpoLife.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when ValpoLife.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ValpoLife, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of ValpoLife.com and have supplied your email address, ValpoLife.com may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what is going on with ValpoLife.com and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. ValpoLife.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Accessing and updating personal information
When you use ValpoLife.com services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
