We’ve done our best to cut through the legal jargon and explain in simple terms what information we collect about you, what we use it for, and the few situations in which we share it with others.
When you create an account with VOLO, you give us your email address, and create a username and password. If you don’t feel like creating an account from scratch, you may be able to sign in through an account you already have with another service, such as Facebook. Like most website and mobile application operators, We collect information about what VOLO pages you access or visit, information about your mobile device (such as device or browser type), and the URLs of websites that referred you to us.
We also 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.
A big part of VOLO is sharing travel journal you create. That’s why your VOLO profile and the comments you post are all public. Aside from that, we use your information to keep VOLO running, better understand how you use our service, customize your experience (including the content, marketing materials, and advertisements you see), prevent abuse and improve VOLO.
We share your personally identifiable information only under these circumstances:
We may disclose aggregate information about how our users use VOLO in a manner doesn’t identify you individually.
We have implemented stringent measures to secure and protect your information.
Cookies and HTML5 local storage are ways to keep information about your use of Internet services on your own mobile device or computer.
VOLO also uses web beacons in advertisements to allow VOLO and its advertising partners to see how users view and engage with advertisements. Depending on your advertising preferences set in your operating system, VOLO may share your Advertising ID with advertising partners in an anonymous fashion that is not tied to your name or email address.
If you’d like to delete your account, you can do so in the VOLO application or websites. If we delete your account, your user profile will no longer be visible on our service, though we may still keep some log information in non-personally identifiable form and any other information you have made publicly available through VOLO.
When you use VOLO services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide VOLO with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
VOLO may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites and mobile applications. For instance, VOLO may monitor the most popular accounts on the withvolo.com site and VOLO’s mobile applications or use spam screened by third party services to help identify spam. VOLO may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, VOLO does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described above.
