It is Mass Virtual’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect during your visit to our website.
Like most website operators, Mass Virtual collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Mass Virtual’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mass Virtual’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Mass Virtual may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Mass Virtual’s website choose to interact with Mass Virtual in ways that require Mass Virtual to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Mass Virtual gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Mass Virtual – by engaging our services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Mass Virtual collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Mass Virtual. Mass Virtual does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Mass Virtual may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Mass Virtual may monitor visits to the site following certain announcements, blog postings and the like. Mass Virtual may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Mass Virtual does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Mass Virtual discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (1) need to know that information in order to process it on Mass Virtual’s behalf or to provide services available at Mass Virtual’s website, and (2) 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 Mass Virtual’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Mass Virtual 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, Mass Virtual discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Mass Virtual believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Mass Virtual, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Mass Virtual website or service and have supplied your email address, Mass Virtual may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Mass Virtual and our products. We primarily use our various communications for 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. Mass Virtual takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Mass Virtual, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Mass Virtual goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Mass Virtual may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
