Privacy Policy



We at DeepVu, Inc. have created this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, use and share information we obtain through our website located at www.vufind.com, as well as our mobile phone and Internet-based products and services, including, without limitation VuGraph, VuAlbum and VuHunt (together, the "DeepVu Services"). This Privacy Policy does not govern our use of any information you provide to us when you call us, write to us, or communicate with us in any manner other than through the DeepVu Services. Because the Internet is global, information about you that we collect or that you submit may be transferred to, processed in, and held in countries (including the United States) other than the one in which you reside. By using the DeepVu Services, you explicitly consent to such use of your information and agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is effective as of June 2010.


Information You Choose to Submit

You can use certain of the DeepVu Services without telling us who you are or revealing to us any information by which someone could personally identify you (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as "Identifiable Personal Data"). However, to obtain access to certain DeepVu Services (e.g., VuGraph, VuAlbum and VuHunt), or portions of our website, (e.g., chat rooms, bulletin boards and other online forums), or to participate in contests we may offer from time to time, or to integrate with the websites and services of our third-party partners ("Third Party Partners"), e.g. Facebook or Flickr, you may be required to provide certain Identifiable Personal Data as well as information about yourself (for example your gender, birth date, or zip code) or your photos and videos by which someone could not personally identify you (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as "Non-Identifiable Personal Data"). We use Identifiable Personal Data and Non-Identifiable Personal Data (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as "Personal Data") to fulfill your requests for DeepVu Services, to monitor and improve the DeepVu Services, and to contact you from time to time about us and the DeepVu Services.


Information We Automatically Collect

We automatically collect certain information to help us understand how you use the DeepVu Services (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as "Usage Data"). For example, each time you use the DeepVu Services we may automatically collect your IP address, browser and computer or mobile phone type, access time, the webpage or Third Party Partner from which you came, and the webpage(s) and DeepVu Services that you access during your visit. We also may use cookies (which are small amounts of data sent from a web server to your browser that are stored in your mobile phone or computers memory) and web beacons (which are invisible files located on webpages that you visit) to keep track of your use of the DeepVu Services, to validate your identity, to remember your password and preferences, to tailor the DeepVu Services to meet your personal interests, and to improve the quality of the DeepVu Services. In addition, third parties who place advertisements on the DeepVu Services may also collect information through cookies and web beacons to ensure that their advertising systems and technologies work properly and to allow them to track responses to their advertisements. Cookies and web beacons set by these third parties are governed by the privacy policies of those third parties. Generally, you can set your browser not to accept cookies or to notify you if you are sent a cookie, giving you the opportunity to choose whether or not to accept the cookie. Please note that if you do set your browser not to accept cookies, certain areas of the DeepVu Services may not function properly. We may combine Usage Data with Personal Data in a manner that enables us to trace Usage Data to an individual user. Certain of the DeepVu Services, including, without limitation, the VuGraph, VuAlbum and VuHunt products (the "Integrated Services") are integrated with the websites and services of our Third Party Partners. By your use of the DeepVu Services through Third Party Partners, your User Information may be provided and visible to the Third Party Partners, and will be governed by the privacy policies of the Third Party Partners.
