Thanks for taking a look at Velnota!
Our mission is to gather ideas to grow society, interweave opinions, and connect with different thinking neighbors. To do that, we show you personalized content and ads we think you’ll be interested in based on information we collect from you. We only use that information where we have proper legal basis for doing so. We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices you have about it.
Effective 26 December 2020.
When you sign up for or use Velnota, you voluntarily share certain information including your name, email address, photos, comments, and any other information you give us. We also use your IP address, which is used to approximate your location, even if you don’t choose to share your precise location. You will also have the option to share other information about yourself such as your preferred language.
Errors happen time to time, so we collect several different events to understand what happened. This is called logging, and Velnota logs automatically.
We use the information we have to deliver our Services to:
Some of the information on the Services is public and accessible to everyone, even without an account. By using the Services, you are directing us to share this information publicly and freely.
When you submit content (including a post, extension, comment, or chat message) to a public part of the Services, any visitors to and users of our Services will be able to see that content, the username associated with the content, and the date and time you originally submitted the content. Although some parts of the Services may be private or quarantined, they may become public (for example, at the moderator’s option in the case of private walls) and you should take that into consideration before posting to the Services.
Velnota only shares nonpublic information about you in the following ways. We do not sell this information.
We have a legitimate interest in delivering ads that are relevant, interesting and personal to you in order to generate revenue. To further these interests we use the information we collect to decide which ads to show you. For example, if you create many posts, comments, or extensions about camping, we may show you ads for redesigning how tents are made or simply outdoor products on the market. We customize the ad content we show you by identifying your interests based on your onsite and offsite activities.
Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices regarding your information. If you have a Velnota account, many of these controls are built directly into Velnota or your settings. For example, you can:
We are based in the United States and we process and store information on servers located in the United States. We may store information on servers and equipment in other countries depending on a variety of factors, including the locations of our users and service providers. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing, transfer, and storage of information in and to the U.S. and other countries, where you may not have the same rights as you do under local law.
As required by applicable law, we collect and process information about individuals in the EEA only where we have a legal basis for doing so. Our legal bases depend on the Services you use and how you use them. We process your information on the following legal bases:
Children under the age of 13 are not allowed to create an account or otherwise use the Services. Additionally, if you are in the EEA, you must be over the age required by the laws of your country to create an account or otherwise use the Services, or we need to have obtained verifiable consent from your parent or legal guardian.
