Volute Technologies, Inc. (“VOLUTE”) is committed to protecting your privacy. We have prepared this Privacy Policy to describe our practices regarding the personal information that may be collected from users of our websites which post this Privacy Policy, including http://www.volute.education (“SITE”), and its SaaS platform (“PLATFORM”). By submitting personal information through our Site or Platform, you expressly consent to the processing of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. The use of personal information collected through our Site or Platform shall be limited to the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information gathered by Volute Technologies, Inc., (“Volute”, “us” or “we”) in the process of providing this Site, Platform, and the data, services, information, tools, functionality, updates and similar materials (collectively, the “Service”), how we use it, with whom the information may be shared, what choices are available to you regarding collection, use and distribution of information and our efforts to protect the information you provide to us through the Service. By using the Service, you hereby consent to allow us to process information in accordance with this Policy.

This Privacy Policy applies only to you as an individual person using the Service, and does not apply to the companies or organizations at which you may be employed or that you may otherwise represent.

This policy is subject to change. If our information retention or usage practices change, we will let you know by posting the Privacy Policy changes on the Service and/or otherwise making you aware of the changes. Please refer to the “Effective Date” above to see when this Policy was last updated.


Territoriality

Regardless of where our servers are located, your personal data may be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world.

BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY US THROUGH VOLUNTARY SUBMISSIONS, AND THAT U.S. LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.


Information Collected

We collect two types of information about persons who use the Service: personal information and anonymous information.

“Personal Information” is information that is personally identifiable to you, such as your name, address, email address or phone number, as well as other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing.

“Anonymous Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. We may create Anonymous Information from (i) automatically gathered information or (ii) Personal Information by excluding information (such as name) that make the information personally identifiable to you.


Personal Information Collected

We collect certain Personal Information about you, which may be supplied when you sign-up for the Service, when you complete a survey, when you create or update an account, when you use the Service, when you request services or otherwise when you submit such information. The information that may be collected includes:

  • Name
  • Phone Number
  • Email
  • Username
  • Social Media account names and information
  • Work history and information
  • Information from your activities on the Service
  • Device identifiers
  • Location data

Anonymous Information

Anonymous Information is collected about you when you use the Service, including but not limited to links and materials posted, enrollment history, purchase history, the type of device you used and its operating system, the pages accessed most frequently, how pages are used, applications downloaded, search terms entered, and similar data. Automatically Tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of automatically collecting information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your device whenever you surf the internet. Further, the Service may utilize web beacons, pixel tags, cookies, embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools. The Service may also collect device identifiers.

Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device, that may interfere with your use of the Service.

Part of the purpose of the Service is to share materials you make available. Anything you publicly post or that is available publicly will not be considered Personal Information.


Use of Information


Internal Use of Information

We accept and gather information in an effort to provide the Service to you. We may also use this information to help us develop and improve our Service, fulfill your requests, send materials to you, inform you about our offers and those of others, tailor our Service to meet your interests, and for other purposes permitted by law.

We may use Anonymous Information or non-Personal Information for any business purpose.


Sharing Information Collected with Third Parties, Consultants, and Affiliates

We may share personal information with our business associates, consultants, service providers, advisors and affiliates in order for them to provide services to us, to you, and to enable us to provide the Service. For example, our host and internet service provider may have access to this information.

If you use the Service to interact with other users, your Personal Information and Anonymous Information may be shared with those other users.

Further, we may disclose collected information to the extent we believe it necessary to comply with the law, such as in response to a subpoena or court order, to defend a legal claim or establish or protect our legal rights or otherwise as permitted by applicable law. We may disclose any information in our possession in the event that we believe it necessary or appropriate to prevent criminal activity, personal injury, property damage or bodily harm.

Additionally, we may transfer your information to a successor in interest, which may include but may not be limited to a third-party in the event of an acquisition, sale, asset sale, merger or bankruptcy.


Links

Our Service may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. When you leave our Service to visit another website or application, please read the privacy statements of websites that may collect personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by us through the Service.


Security

We employ procedural and technical safeguards to secure your personal information against loss, theft, alteration, and unauthorized access, use and disclosure. We also employ security procedures to protect your information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company.

Regardless of the precautions we take, no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.


E-Mail and Electronic Newsletters

We may offer electronic newsletters and e-mails concerning promotions, new products and services, or other marketing materials as a service to our users. You may receive newsletters and e-mails concerning promotions and marketing of ours, after you register through with the Service. If, after you have received a message, you no longer wish to receive such materials, you may opt-out by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each electronic newsletter and e-mail.


Access and Control

Some of the information collected about you may be retrievable and changeable through your account. To do so, follow instructions on the Service.


Communication Tools

The Service may contain tools that enable you to share Personal Information, including sensitive information, with others, through social media and in other ways. Should you choose to use such tools, please exercise caution when sharing sensitive information.


Do Not Track

At this time, the Service does not specifically respond to do-not-track signals.


Children and Privacy

We do not knowingly permit users to register for our Service if they are under 13 years old, and therefore do not request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. If we become aware that a customer is under the age of 13 and has registered without prior verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her personally identifiable registration information from our files. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 13 who has provided personally identifiable information to us without your approval, please inform us by contacting us at the e-mail address below and we will remove such information from our database.


California Privacy Rights

California law allows California residents to request information regarding our disclosures in the prior calendar year, if any, of their personally identifiable information to third parties. To make such a request, please contact us at operations@volute.co with "Request for Privacy Information" in the subject line. Please include enough detail for us to locate your file; at a minimum, your name, email, and username, if any. We will attempt to provide you with the requested information within thirty (30) days of receipt. We reserve our right not to respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year, or requests submitted to an address other than the one posted in this notice. Please note that this law does not cover all information sharing. Our disclosure only includes information covered by the law.
