Introduction

OrcaVue is committed to respecting the privacy of our website users and providing them with a safe and secure online experience. This Privacy Policy applies to visitors to OrcaVue’s website https://orcavue.com (the “OrcaVue Site”), which is owned, operated and distributed by Vue Events, Inc., 7411 Livingston Road, Suite 204, Oxon Hill, MD 20745. References to “OrcaVue,” “the Company,” “us,” “we” or “our” in this Privacy Policy means Vue Events, Inc. (dba OrcaVue) and/or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or joint ventures.

This Privacy Policy provides notice to users of the OrcaVue Site regarding their Personal Information (as defined below), in compliance with data privacy laws and regulations in the jurisdiction(s) in which the OrcaVue Site may be used. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use, secure, and disclose Personal Information collected through the OrcaVue Site. When you provide Personal Information to OrcaVue via the OrcaVue Site, OrcaVue becomes a controller of that Personal Information. This means OrcaVue can decide the purposes for which and the ways in which the Personal Information is used.

By accessing any part of the OrcaVue Site, you understand and agree to the terms and conditions described in these OrcaVue Terms & Conditions of Use, including this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to all users who submit Personal Information through the OrcaVue Site. OrcaVue may modify this Privacy Policy at any time at its sole discretion by publishing such modifications on the OrcaVue Site. By accessing the OrcaVue Site at any time after such modifications, you are agreeing to such modifications.   Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective when we make it available on or through the Website.

If you do not agree to any of these terms, you should not use this OrcaVue Site. If at any time you wish to change any of your Personal Information that is collected through the OrcaVue Site, withdraw your consent for processing of your Personal Information, or request deletion of your Personal Information, you may contact OrcaVue at info@orcavue.com or as described below.

1.     WHAT IS “PERSONAL INFORMATION” AND HOW IS IT COLLECTED?

In order to better provide you with our products and services, we collect two general types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information (together referred to as “Personal Information”). Personally Identifiable Information is information that relates to you individually and allows us to identify you by name, mailing address and e-mail address. We obtain this information directly from you in order to fulfill your order for Products, services, rentals or licensing. Our primary goal in collecting this information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using the OrcaVue Site. Information from which we cannot personally identify you is Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

We use Personal Information that you provide to help us take and fulfill your orders for our products, improve our products, respond to your questions and requests, improve the OrcaVue Site experience for you, communicate with you, and other such purposes. We may collect Personal Information about you in the following ways:

  1. Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our OrcaVue Site or give to us in any other way. Examples of Personal Information we collect include:

 

-     Your name and contact details (title, first name, surname, any other name(s), postal address, e-mail address, telephone number)

-     Any other identifying information provided by you

-     Your purchases, rentals and licenses from us

-     Your User ID and password

-     Your “Search” queries

-     The communications you exchange with us (e.g., your emails, letters, calls, and messages to or about us on social media)

-     Information about how you use our OrcaVue Site

 

Please note that your credit card details are handled by a third-party payment processor,  and we do not have access to that information unless we separately collect it for deposit reasons in order to fulfill a rental or service order

 

  1. Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of Personal Information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies,” which are small bits of information that are stored by your computer’s web browser when accessing the OrcaVue Site. We get information about how you use the OrcaVue Site through our use of “cookies” or similar identifiers. “Cookies” are small pieces of information stored by your computer hard drive’s browser which enable you to navigate on our website and allow us to provide features such as keeping you logged in to our website as you move from page to page within the site. For example, we cannot process your order without your name and address.

 

Examples of information we receive from cookies include:

-       Your browser type and operating system

-       Your Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number automatically assigned to your computer when you access the Internet, which may be used to derive your general geographic area) and geolocation information

-       Which OrcaVue Site pages you view and links you click on

-       Standard server log information

You can decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by configuring your preferences or options in your browser. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the OrcaVue Site, for example, certain online products, services or features.

 

For more information, please see our Cookie Policy at Section 7 of this Privacy Policy.

 

  1. Mobile: When you use your mobile device to access the OrcaVue Site, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a mobile device ID number (a unique identifier for your device). We may use this information to ascertain the geographic areas where our potential customers are located. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services if you wish.

 

  1. E-mail Communications: When you open an email from us, we receive a confirmation that you did so (if your computer so allows). In this way, we learn what content interests our customers and can tailor emails we send to you according to your interests.  If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please contact us at info@orcavue.com.

 

  1. Information from Other Sources: We might receive Personal Information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. Examples of such information may include updated delivery and address information from a delivery carrier, which we would use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication accurately, and credit history information from credit bureaus, which we use to help prevent and detect fraud, thereby enabling us to keep our product prices down.

 

2.     PROCESSING AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

We process your Personal Information only: (1) with your consent; (2) as necessary to fulfill orders from our customers; and (3) as necessary for our legitimate interests in fulfilling orders from customers and building our business. The Personal Information you provide will be processed and used for the following purposes only:

A.   To take and fulfill your order and perform related activities such as invoicing, delivery, providing administrative, managerial and organizational services, and other purposes necessary to confirm and complete your order and transport the products you order to you. We may contact you by email and/or SMS to confirm your order, payment and/or order status.

B.    To improve our services and our business processes. We will use your Personal Information for business purposes such as accounting, billing, marketing, statistical, tax and audit, security and legal, general management, records and business development. For example, we use IP addresses to help administer the OrcaVue Site, diagnose problems with our servers, identify and analyze trends among our customers and clients, track our users' movement on the Internet, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the OrcaVue Site and your online shopping experience on it.

C.   To fulfill our obligations under the law, regulations, applicable legislation and other requirements of the Government, law enforcement authorities and supervisory and control bodies.

D.   To inform you about products and offers you may find interesting. We may use the Personal Information we have about you (including your order history) to build a profile about your past purchase, rentals or licensing from us, to show you OrcaVue offers and carry out other commercial communications, and perhaps to show you advertising related to other OrcaVue products. When you interact with us by posting or messaging on social media, we may use the Personal Information that is included in such posts for these same purposes and to perform marketing and promotional activities regarding our products and services and to carry out other commercial communications

E.    To ask for your participation in product reviews or customer preference questionnaires or to conduct studies and other market research. We may contact you to ask that you participate in product reviews or questionnaires about your likes, dislikes, and preferences for the types of products we sell or plan to sell, or products you have purchased from us. We do this to ensure we are meeting our customers’ needs and desires and to stay abreast of changes in market preferences.

 

The Personal Information required for the purposes set out in Subsections 2.A., 2.B. and 2.C. above must be provided in order to fulfill statutory obligations and/or to execute and conclude the contractual relationship embodied by your order for a product or service or request for a License on the OrcaVue Site. Therefore, full or partial refusal to provide such data would render such sales or licensing impossible. You have the right to refuse all or part of the processing of your Personal Information for the purposes set out in Subsections 2.D. and 2.E. by checking the appropriate box at the end of this Privacy Policy or by contacting info@orcavue.com.

The processing of Personal Information is carried out directly by employees or other agents of OrcaVue by means of operations performed on Personal Information (or sets of Personal Information), possibly by automated means, such as collecting, recording, organizing, structuring, storing, adapting or altering, retrieving, consulting, using, disclosing by transmission, disseminating or otherwise making available, aligning or combining, restricting, erasing or destroying such data. Such processing is done in compliance with applicable laws regarding confidentiality and security and is consistent with principles of fairness, lawfulness, transparency and protection of your rights.

If you object to the use of your Personal Information for any of the purposes set out above or wish to opt out of marketing communications, check the appropriate box at the end of this Privacy Policy or contact us at info@orcavue.com.

3.     STORAGE AND SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

The security of your Personal Information is important to us and we understand its importance to you. We have implemented and follow industry standard measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of Personal Information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. 

 

In order to most efficiently serve you, we use established third-party banking and processing agents to provide credit card processing services on our OrcaVue Site. These agents receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information. OrcaVue may receive credit card information outside of our e-commerce platform for the purposes of holding deposits on rentals or services; in these cases, the information is encrypted after receipt, but OrcaVue does not warrant its security and it could be accessible to malicious actors during the acquisition phase. This policy is subject to change. 

 

Unfortunately, no storage or data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we conscientiously strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet that are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the OrcaVue Site cannot be absolutely guaranteed; and (c) it is possible that any such Personal Information or data may be viewed or tampered with by a third party while in transit. We are not responsible for the theft or destruction of your Personal Information. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account password and for any access to or use of the OrcaVue Site using your password, whether or not authorized by you. Please notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security.

 

4.     SHARING OR SELLING PERSONAL INFORMATION

A.    Internal Use Only. We will use your Personal Information for internal purposes only and we never sell your Personal Information to any third parties (and have not done so in the past). We may share Personal Information with:

B.    Web Analytics. We use third parties to provide web analytics on the OrcaVue Site, and these third parties may use their own cookies, web beacons (a.k.a., “clear GIFs”), local shared objects, and other technologies to collect information (i) that helps us with traffic measurement, research, and analytics (such as aggregate click data), and (ii) that is used to place advertisements tailored to your apparent interests. To the extent we combine information from such third-party services with Personal Information we collect directly from you, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy. When you use the OrcaVue Site, we will share Personal Information with third parties only so far as necessary for the third party to help carry out your order (e.g., delivery services).

 

C.    Linking to Third Party Websites. If you choose to link to third-party websites via our OrcaVue Site, third parties may collect information about your use of our OrcaVue Site. Similarly, where you choose to interact with OrcaVue’s content on social media, third parties may collect information. Information collected by third-party social media services is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties. When you are directed to a third party’s website by OrcaVue, OrcaVue is not responsible for the processing of your Personal Information by any third party. OrcaVue is not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.

[Some of the [advertisers and] service providers that perform advertising-related services for us [and our partners] may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding interest-based advertising, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices. Some of these companies also may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”).

Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of interest-based advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected members should no longer deliver certain interest-based advertising to you but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks).]

5.     STORAGE AND RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

Personal Information that we collect is kept on servers located within the United States. In the future, in order to serve the purposes set out in Section 2 above, we may transfer your Personal Information to other servers in other countries. By providing us with any Personal Information, you consent to the transfer of that data to countries outside of your country of residence. OrcaVue shall use appropriate safeguards to protect Personal Information that is transferred to countries that may have a lower level of protection for Personal Information, and if applicable, such transfer of data will take place in accordance with applicable legal provisions set out by the European Commission and/or other applicable governmental authorities.

The Company may use your Personal Information while you are active with Company. Personal Information will be kept by the Company for up to five (5) years for legal purposes (such as tax audit, statutes of limitations, etc.), and upon the expiration of this period, the Personal Information may be deleted. Where your consent previously has been obtained but you later object or withdraw your consent as set out in this Privacy Policy, we will stop processing your Personal Information.

A.   Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website.

Some cookies, known as “session cookies,” expire at the end of your browser session. Other cookies, known as “persistent cookies,” are stored on your computer or mobile device between browser sessions.

We may employ pixel tags to track usage patterns anonymously (i.e., in a non-personally-identifiable manner). Flash Cookies (a.k.a. “Local Shared Objects”) are similar to standard cookies except that they can be larger and are downloaded to a computer or mobile device by the Adobe Flash media player. 

You may need to take additional steps beyond changing your browser settings in order to refuse or disable Flash Cookies and similar technologies.  For example, Flash Cookies can be controlled through the instructions on Adobe’s “Setting Manager” page.  Please note, however, that if you choose to refuse, disable, or delete these technologies, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the OrcaVue Site.
