Collection and Use of Information
The Personal Information We Collect. This Policy applies to all information collected by or submitted to www.vendefy.com. We consider “personal information” to mean information about an identifiable individual. As part of the registration process, you will create an account and will be asked to provide a variety of information including, but not limited to, your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and information about you and/or your company. We also collect billing information such as credit card numbers. You will be asked to provide a user name when you create an account. Your user name is publicly displayed and connected to your activity on the App. Other Users may see the date you joined, ratings, reviews, comments and photos of the items you listed for sale or have sold; your followers and those you follow; your “likes” and other public information you may choose to provide and display. Your purchases and purchasing history are not public and are not seen by other users, unless you share that information.
IP Address. An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your internet service provider when you log on. Your IP address is not linked to your Personal Information but Vendefy does reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten the App or other users or visitors. IP addresses may also be used to help diagnose problems with the App and to gather broad demographic information.
Third-Party Applications. Some Users or visitors may connect with the App or register on the App using Facebook or Twitter. If you decide to connect your account to an external, third-party application, you will be granting Vendefy permission to receive information from such third-party applications. However, you cannot share your activity on the App on the social media networks which are connected to your account.
Other Information. When you access the App, Vendefy will automatically receive some information about your use of the service. The type of information that is automatically collected by Vendefy includes such things as the date and time of access of the App, the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer that you are using, the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your browser software and operating system, the referring website address, and the kinds of business activities you are engaged in while using the App. This information is used to help us improve and enhance the website to better meet the needs of its users.
Vendefy will also aggregate Personal Information and may use, share and disclose such aggregated Personal Information as permitted by law. For example, we may use such aggregated Personal Information for research and product development purposes, and may also share such aggregated Personal Information with Vendefy’s business partners.
Regardless of whether a User has chosen to limit Vendefy’s sharing of Personal Information as collected on the App, Vendefy may, without restriction, use, share and disclose aggregated statistics about Users, along with specific information concerning individual Users that is not Personal Information in any way permitted by applicable law.
We may also use third-party advertising companies to target and show you advertisements when you visit the Website. These third-party advertisers may send “cookies” to your computer or other device to gather information about your preferences to provide you with advertising that is more likely to relate to your interests.
If you want to delete any cookies that were already sent to your computer, please refer to your web browser’s “Help” facility. In addition, most web browsers can be set to prevent you from receiving new cookies, notify you before accepting cookies or disable cookies altogether. Details about this can normally be found in the “Help” facility provided with your browser. Please note that if you disable cookies you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Site's interactive functionality. We may also use third-party advertising companies to target and show you advertisements when you visit the Website. These third-party advertisers may send “cookies” to your computer or other device to gather information about your preferences to provide you with advertising that is more likely to relate to your interests.
Do Not Track Signals
Certain web browsers provide users with an option by which you may have your browser send a “Do Not Track” signal to websites that you are visiting, advising the recipient websites that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. However, the way browsers communicate such “Do Not Track” signals is not yet uniform and, accordingly, our App does not take any action in response to such signals. In the event a final standard is developed and accepted, we may reassess how we should respond to such signals.
When you register for an account through the App, we may provide you with the opportunity to receive information from companies or individuals who have services, products, information and/or offers that we think might be of interest to you. If you elect to receive such information or offers, Vendefy may from time to time provide your contact information to these entities so that they may send you such information. If you no longer want us to share your contact information with others, follow the instructions set forth in the Opting In and Opting Out of Electronic Communications section in this Policy. If you no longer want to receive information from those third parties, you will need to opt out of those communications by following the instructions set forth in such other parties’ privacy policies.
You must be 18 years of age to use the App. Vendefy does not knowingly collect or maintain any Personal Information from children under the age of 13, and no part of this App is designed with the purpose of attracting such children. If you use the App from any country outside the United States, the various communications will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries. By visiting the App, you consent to these transfers.
Users are able and encouraged to rate their Vendefy experience. Ratings are public and can be viewed by users of and visitors to the App. Ratings cannot be deleted once you post them, provided, however, that if you post anything that Vendefy deems, in its sole and absolute discretion, to be inappropriate, Vendefy can delete such posts without your consent.

as otherwise permitted by law.
We may also use your Personal Information to contact you via direct postal mail and/or electronically to the extent such activity is permitted by law. This information may also be used to help Vendefy and its commercial partners, and services providers deliver information to you, and for other purposes as are reasonably necessary to provide the services requested by you. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings or other messages from us by following the instructions in the e-mail or other message you receive from us or by following the instructions set forth in the Opting In and Opting Out of Electronic Communications section in this Policy.
Opting In and Opting Out of Electronic Communications. At certain points where Personal Information is collected on our App, there may be a box to indicate that you wish to receive certain information or communications from us. You may opt out of receiving electronic communications, such as emails from us at any time. In all of our electronic communications you will be given the opportunity to opt out of receiving future communications.
Lawful Access, Legal Action and Investigations. Your Personal Information may otherwise be disclosed to non-affiliated third parties as either permitted by, or to comply with, applicable laws and regulations. Your Personal Information may be transmitted through and stored on servers outside your home country, and may be accessed by authorities in those jurisdictions. We may disclose Personal Information if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities or fraud, situations involving the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms and Conditions of Use, or otherwise in accordance with applicable law.
Disclosure of Personal Information to Non-Affiliated Third Parties. In addition to the above disclosures, Vendefy may share your Personal Information, without restriction, with companies and organizations that we retain to perform services for us, such as those that provide data processing, computer software maintenance and development, and companies providing professional, legal or accounting advice to us. In such situations, Vendefy requires that these companies and organizations agree to (a) maintain the confidentiality of the Personal Information, and (b) limit the use of such Personal Information to the purposes for which it was provided. We will not sell, rent or market Personal Information collected on this App to non-affiliated third parties for their marketing purposes, unless we have your consent. However, we may disclose aggregated statistics about visitors to the App, along with anonymous information concerning individual users of the App. We may combine anonymous information and/or aggregate information we collect with additional anonymous and/or aggregate information collected from other sources. We may share anonymous information (including aggregate information) we collect regarding our users with third parties (such as advisors, and/or consultants) for various business purposes including conducting general business analysis, and developing website content and services.
Retention of Personal Information. Personal Information is retained to deliver our services, to otherwise fulfill identified or apparent purposes, and Personal Information may be retained for record-keeping. At some point Vendefy may elect to destroy, erase or anonymize your Personal Information. Once anonymized, we undertake not to re-identify the information.
Links to Other Apps and Services
The App may contain links to various other sites such as sites owned by retailers. These sites may ask to collect user information voluntarily or otherwise collect certain information (for example, your IP address). Please be aware that these other websites may have different privacy policies that may subject users to different privacy practices. Please review the privacy policies of such other websites for information concerning what information is collected on such websites and how it is used.
Information Storage and Protection
Vendefy will maintain reasonable procedures to protect the security and confidentiality of Personal Information provided to it by Users, in accordance with Applicable Law.
There are industry standard safeguards in place to protect Users’ Personal Information, such as the use of firewalls and SSL certificates, and limiting access to such information by company personnel. Personal Information will be stored in databases and servers located in the United States. However, no transmission made through the internet can be made completely secure, and accordingly, we will not be liable for the disclosure of any Users’ Personal Information that occurs as a result of transmission errors or the actions of any third party to the fullest extent permitted by law.
In the unlikely event that we determine that there may have been a security breach that results in the unauthorized disclosure of Personal Information to a third party, Vendefy will promptly notify consumers whose Personal Information it reasonably believes may have been compromised by posting information on the App and, if email contact is possible, then also by sending an email notification with respect to the situation.
Options to Review and Opt-Out Choices
In addition to having the ability to opt-out of receiving electronic communications, such as emails from Vendefy, Users may access, review and, in certain situations, update, revise and/or delete certain Personal Information. Additionally, please note that while you may request the updating, revision or deletion of such information, a copy of the unrevised information may be maintained in Vendefy’s records after any such revision or deletion.
If for any reason you wish to discontinue the use of the App and have your Personal Information removed from our database, please.
