Effective Date: Aug. 8, 2023
This Policy constitutes an important part of our Terms of Service and applies to Users’ access to and use of the Vivomeetings.com site and any content, software, functionality, products, and services offered on or through the site or otherwise offered by us, including the Vivomeetings products, websites, and services listed at https://vivomeetings.com/virtual-meeting/ (collectively, the “Services” or “Site”).
YOUR USE OF AND ACCESS TO THE SITE AND SERVICES IS CONDITIONED UPON YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS POLICY. You accept this Policy by creating an account with us, through your use of any of the Services, or by continuing to use the Services after being notified of a change to this Policy. If you do not agree to this Policy, you must not access or use our Services.
We may revise this Policy from time to time without prior notice. If we make any substantial changes, we may (but are not obligated to) notify you as provided in the Terms of Services. Any changes to this Policy will be effective when posted on our site. Continued use of our Services following posting of such changes shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes. Please check this Policy frequently to see any changes.
Scope of Policy
In this Policy, a “User” may be either a Customer, Host or a Participant. A “Customer” is the person (typically, an entity or organization) that has subscribed to our Service. A “Host” is a person, such as an employee or independent contractor of the Customer, to whom the Customer has given the authority to host meetings and use other Services. A “Participant” is a person who has access to or uses the Services, other than a Host. A Participant is bound by this Policy, but is not entitled to the rights and privileges of a Customer or Host. A person who is a Host may also access and use the Services but in that capacity will be a Participant rather than a Host. A “person” is an individual or any type of legal entity. You represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this Policy, on behalf of yourself and/or the entity that you represent for purposes of such access and use.
This Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the Site and use our Services, and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.
This Policy applies to information we collect:
This Policy does not apply to information we collect offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by Vivomeetings or any third party. It also does not apply to any third party, including through any application, advertising or other content, that may link to or be accessible from or on this Site.
This Policy also does not apply to persons that are not affiliated with Vivomeetings, meaning persons that Vivomeetings does not own or control, and persons that are not under common control with Vivomeetings. Importantly, we do not control Users of our Services, including other Participants in communications you may have using the Services. We do not obtain control over persons merely by accepting registration of them as Users of the Services during a Host’s session. A Customer and/or Host therefore is an unaffiliated third party that receives and could collect such information in a manner that is beyond our control. Similarly, a Host must provide Participants with the means to identify a particular Host for a particular session in connection with requests for participation in that Host’s particular session, and such Participants are third parties unaffiliated with Vivomeetings who could record that information.
If you are a Host or Participant who uses our Site or Services through rights granted by a Customer (such as your employer, school, or other organization), or if you are a Participant who uses our Services at the invitation of a Host, then your relationship is with the Customer that holds the account with us. That Customer controls its account through which you use our Services, and is the data controller that determines and administers processing of your Content under its privacy policies. If you have questions about how and why your Content is collected, the legal basis for processing, or the storage, access, modification, retention, use, and deletion of your Content, please refer to that Customer’s privacy policies and direct your inquiries to the Customer or its administrator.

Special Note Regarding Content
You may transmit or display Content – which may include personal and other information about yourself – to other Users with whom you are communicating though the Services. And other Users may transmit or display Content about them to you. Content includes information such as messages you send, information you post, audio/video content you send to others, files, chat logs, and transcripts, and any other information you may upload while using the Services.
Although we collect the Content that Users create and transmit, this Content is owned by the Customer that provided the User with access credentials or other permissions as a User. We do not control Customers, and we use Content only in connection with providing the Services. We do not monitor, sell or use Content for any other purposes.
Your Content is owned by and is subject to the policies and procedures of the Customer that permitted you to access the Services. You disclose, publish or display Content at your own risk. Although you or the Customer giving you access to the Services may set certain privacy settings for Content by logging into your account profile, please be aware that we cannot control the actions of other Users with whom you may choose to share Content. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your Content will not be viewed by unauthorized persons or used for unauthorized purposes.
Use By Children
Vivomeetings does not knowingly allow children under the age of 18 to be a Customer and sign up for their own accounts. But individuals under the age of 18 may use our Service when invited to join a meeting hosted by a Customer or Host who is 18 or older. In that event, the Customer or Host of the meeting is responsible for obtaining any parental or other consent necessary for use of the Services under their accounts. If we learn that we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without parental or other legal consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13 without such consent, please contact us at:

How We Use Your Information
We use information that we collect about you or that you or others provide to us, including any personal information, to:
We may also use your information to contact you about our own and third-parties’ goods and services that may be of interest to you. If you do not want us to use your information in this way, please email us at contact@Vivomeetings.com and let us know of your desire to opt out of such correspondence.
We may use the information we have collected from you to enable us to display advertisements to our advertisers’ target audiences. Even though we do not disclose your personal information for these purposes without your consent, if you click on or otherwise interact with an advertisement, the advertiser may assume that you meet its target criteria.
Disclosure of Your Information
We may disclose aggregated information about our Users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
We do not rent or sell your nonpublic personal information in the ordinary course of our business to any non affiliated third party.
With respect to personal information that we collect or you provide as described in this Policy, we will only disclose it:
We may also disclose your personal information:
Data Security and Retention
Our Sites incorporate physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, including the use of encryption, firewalls, limited access and other controls where appropriate. These measures are described at https://www.vivomeetings.com/terms. However, any of these physical, electronic, and administrative procedures can be bypassed or hacked and we do not guarantee complete security of your personal information or other data. We are not responsible or liable for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. You are responsible for keeping any password or other access credentials confidential. You should also be cautious about providing other Users with your personal information, and we have no control over, and we are not responsible or liable for, how other Users may use or disclose your information.
We retain personal information for as long as necessary to provide the Services and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other necessary purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, preventing fraud, and enforcing our agreements. For example, some of the registration information cannot be completely deleted because that information may be required to send you necessary communications and notices even after your account is terminated. Because these factors vary for different types of personal information, actual retention periods may vary. If you are a Participant, your information is subject to the data retention policies of the Customer that controls the account.
Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information
We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
Tracking Technologies and Advertising. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent.
Disclosure of Your Information for Third-Party Advertising. If you do not want us to share your personal information with unaffiliated or non-agent third parties for promotional purposes, you can opt out by logging into the Site and adjusting your user preferences in your account profile or by sending us an email stating your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Promotional Offers from the Company. If you do not wish to have your contact information used by the Company to promote our own or third parties’ products or services, you can opt out by logging into the Website and adjusting your user preferences in your account profile by checking or unchecking the relevant boxes or by sending us an email stating your request to email@example.com. If we have sent you a promotional email, you may send us a return email asking to be omitted from future email distributions.
Targeted Advertising. If you do not want us to use information that we collect or that you provide to us to deliver advertisements according to our advertisers’ target-audience preferences, you can opt out by logging into the Website and adjusting your user preferences in your account profile by checking or unchecking the relevant boxes or by sending us an email stating your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You also have no opportunity to opt out of protocols which are part of the function of the Site and that are likely to disclose some personal information about you to third parties not affiliated with Vivomeetings. For example, your browser must provide an IP address to exchange communications, and it is an essential part of the functional protocol for hosted meetings using the Services that the Host is supplied with a valid user name and a valid, functional email address (and sometimes additional personal identification information) for each person who requests participation in a Host’s session so that the Host can exercise a right of consent to each participant.
Accessing and Correcting Your Information
Customers can review and change personal information by logging into the Site and visiting the applicable account profile page. Other Users should contact the administrator for the account of the Customer that provides you with access to the Services in order to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided. In any event, copies of Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or may have been copied or stored by other Users.
Your California Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information. To learn more about your California privacy rights, visit the CCPA privacy notice for California Residents.
Users Outside the United States
If you are located outside the United States or are a resident of a jurisdiction other than the U.S., your jurisdiction may provide you additional privacy rights. Please contact the Customer that provided you with your access to the Service.
If you are an EU resident:
Your information may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) that may not be subject to equivalent data protection law. It may be processed by staff outside the EEA who work for us or one of our suppliers.
We may transfer your personal information outside the EEA:
When we share information about you within Vivomeetings and with entities in countries with local laws which may differ from yours, we safeguard the transfer of information we collect from the European Economic Area and Switzerland to the United States. We are no longer participating in the EU-U.S Privacy Shield, nor the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, but we are safeguarding transfers through other means such as standard contractual data protection clauses, which have been approved by the European Commission and Switzerland, and/or the Verizon Binding Corporate Rules, as applicable. In some cases, we may use other appropriate legal mechanisms to safeguard the transfer.
If you are an Australian national where Vivomeetings discloses personal information (as defined by the Australian Privacy Act) of Australian nationals with third parties outside of Australia, Vivomeetings will operate in a manner materially consistent with the applicable Australian Privacy Principles and seek to ensure that the third-party recipient holds and uses the personal information consistently with the applicable Australian Privacy Principle and other applicable privacy laws.
Privacy and Recordings
Video and audio from the video conferencing services may be recorded and saved via the Services by the host account for the Service you are participating in. We do not and cannot control whether your use of the Services is being video recorded, or audio recorded via the Services or a third-party technology. If you do not want to be recorded during your use of the Services, you may inform your host of that decision and/or decline to use the Services.
How You Can Access and Control Information
In accordance with applicable law, your ability to control the information may include the right to:
You can exercise many of these abilities directly through the Services via your Vivomeetings profile page. You may opt out of non-transactional emails through the email notification center. For any issue that cannot be handled on a self-service basis, please reach out to our Support team for assistance. You can also exercise the rights listed above at any time by contacting us at email@example.com. In some instances, if you access the Services under contract with an organization, we may be required to direct your inquiries to an administrative user.
If you no longer want to use our Services, you may choose not to access our website or video-conferencing services at any time and, as applicable, you will need to reach out to our Support team or an administrative user to deactivate your account. If you are an organizational user of the Services, you will need to arrange for an administrative user to remove personal data associated with your account. Otherwise, personal data will be deleted or obfuscated within 180 days of the deactivation of your account.
You may contact our Support team to ask us to stop accessing, storing, using and otherwise processing personal data where our legal basis for doing so relies on your consent or is otherwise objectionable by law. Where you gave us consent to use personal data for a limited purpose, you can contact our Support team to withdraw that consent, but this will not affect any processing already occurred. Where you withdraw your consent, but we are also using your information under a different legal basis (for example, fulfilling a contract with you), we may continue to process personal data, subject to your rights to access and control personal data. Please note that we may need to retain certain information to fulfill legal obligations, in accordance with our record retention practices, or to complete transactions.
