SoftVu uses your browser information to analyze trends, administer our Site, track users’ activities on our Site, help us understand the parts of our Site visited most often and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in improving our Site.
We also may assemble information that we collect into aggregate form (i.e., combine non-personal information obtained from many different users) to better understand how the Site is being used. We may also use this aggregate information to analyze our website’s utility, enhance the areas and functionality within our Site that appear to be of interest to various users and better communicate our Services. We also may access and use statistical/historical analyses, aggregations, scoring results, and other analytics generated by our system and make such analytics available to third parties on an anonymous basis (i.e., without including any personally identifiable information).
SoftVu Information Sharing Policy
Except as described in this Policy, SoftVu does not share, sell, rent, loan, trade, lease or disclose your personal information to any third party without your prior consent.
SoftVu may share your information with service providers and partners who participate in and support providing our Services to you or in addressing or responding to your requests and inquiries. SoftVu also may share your information with our service providers to facilitate Targeted Advertising, as described below in the section titled “Targeted Advertising”. In order to operate our website and provide our Services to you, we also may provide personally identifiable, aggregate, and other information associated with our website to third parties that provide services for us, including services such as shipping, payment processing, database management, and Internet services.
We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law, court order or other valid legal processes or as reasonably necessary for the establishment or maintenance of legal claims.
We may supplement information about you with information obtained from other sources to better serve you and enhance our Services. We may obtain supplemental information from related companies as well as from business partners acting under specific contractual obligations.
We may request you provide us with financial information required to facilitate financial transactions you initiate and, in certain circumstance, we may share this information with third parties, under contract with us, to facilitate such transactions. As described elsewhere within this policy, we implement safeguards designed to protect against the unauthorized use, or disclosure, of such information. Financial information provided to us to facilitate transactions is not otherwise used, or retained. Once terms have been established, and such transactions are complete, we destroy or otherwise obscure such financial information.

As you browse the Internet, you may see advertisements on the web pages you visit. SoftVu delivers, and works with advertising partners to enable the delivery of, relevant messages to the right consumers. This is called Targeted Advertising and may be based on a variety of factors, such as: web Site you visit, perceived interests, and demographic information. Targeted advertising does not result in you seeing more ads, rather the ads you see will be more relevant to you.
SoftVu also may use ad serving companies to place banner ads from other firms on our Site. Your interaction with these advertisements may generate information associated with you, your computer, or the information related to the content present you were viewing.
