Privacy Policy

Valid8 (“Valid8“) operates social-worx.com and may operate other websites. It is Valid8’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Valid8 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. Valid8’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Valid8’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Valid8 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Valid8 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on social-worx.com blogs/sites. Valid8 only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Valid8’s websites choose to interact with Valid8 in ways that require Valid8 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Valid8 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at social-worx.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Valid8 are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Valid8 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Valid8. Valid8 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.

Aggregated Statistics
Valid8 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Valid8 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Valid8 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Valid8 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 Valid8’s behalf or to provide services available at Valid8’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 Valid8’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Valid8 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, Valid8 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Valid8 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Valid8, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Valid8 website and have supplied your email address, Valid8 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 Valid8 and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. Valid8 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies
A cookie is 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. Valid8 uses cookies to help Valid8 identify and track visitors, their usage of Valid8 website, and their website access preferences. Valid8 visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Valid8’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Valid8’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers
If Valid8, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Valid8 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 Valid8 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Valid8 may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Valid8’s sole discretion. Valid8 encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a social-worx.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
