There are many different ways you can use our services – to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating a OmniVirt Account, we can make those services even better – to show you more relevant search results and ads, to help you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
Your privacy matters to OmniVirt so whether you are new to OmniVirt or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions contact us at [email protected].
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most useful, the people who matter most to you online, or which OmniVirt videos you might like.
We collect information in the following ways:
Information we collect when you are signed in to OmniVirt, in addition to information we obtain about you from partners, may be associated with your OmniVirt Account. When information is associated with your OmniVirt Account, we treat it as personal information.
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect OmniVirt and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and ads.
We may use the name you provide for your OmniVirt Profile across all of the services we offer that require a OmniVirt Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your OmniVirt Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible OmniVirt Profile information, such as your name and photo.
If you have a OmniVirt Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on OmniVirt or on third-party applications connected to your OmniVirt Account in our services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts.
When you contact OmniVirt, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. One of the products we use to do this on our own services is OmniVirt Analytics. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. When showing you tailored ads, we will not associate an identifier from cookies or similar technologies with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation or health.
We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other OmniVirt services – for example to make it easier to share things with people you know.
OmniVirt processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of OmniVirt unless one of the following circumstances applies:
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
We work hard to protect OmniVirt and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
