Privacy Policy

Vegan Liftz (“Vegan Liftz”) operates veganliftz.com and may operate other websites. It is Vegan Liftz’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Vegan Liftz collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Vegan Liftz’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Vegan Liftz’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Vegan Liftz may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Vegan Liftz also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on veganliftz.com blogs/sites. Vegan Liftz only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Vegan Liftz’s websites choose to interact with Vegan Liftz in ways that require Vegan Liftz to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Vegan Liftz gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at veganliftz.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Vegan Liftz are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Vegan Liftz collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Vegan Liftz. Vegan Liftz does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Vegan Liftz may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Vegan Liftz may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Vegan Liftz does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Vegan Liftz discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Vegan Liftz’s behalf or to provide services available at Vegan Liftz’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Vegan Liftz’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Vegan Liftz will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Vegan Liftz discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Vegan Liftz believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Vegan Liftz, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Vegan Liftz website and have supplied your email address, Vegan Liftz may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Vegan Liftz and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Vegan Liftz takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Vegan Liftz visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Vegan Liftz’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Vegan Liftz’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache.

For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.
