Personal information provided to VI for the purposes of one project will not be used for other projects.
VI defines personal information as any details that may render a person identifiable. Examples of personal information include but are not limited to: name, email, phone number, address, city, educational history, and profession.
The type and amount of personal information VI requests of its users depends on the specific activity users choose to engage in on our websites. Providing your personal information to VI is always voluntary, though in some cases, not consenting to provide personal information may prevent you from participating in a certain activities or service. Below are cases in which we request personal information:
|Mailing list signup||Providing access to updates sent out via our mailing list.|
|VI Community - Events, Volunteering, or Testimonials||Name, email, city, and professional background||Providing opportunities to engage in VI projects or events on a voluntary basis.|
|Hiring||Resume which may contain name, email, phone, address, educational and professional history, and other information||Determining eligibility for employment|
|Visual download||Name, email, organization, country, city||Understanding visual use and impact|
|VI Boutique||Personal and financial information required to process transactions||To facilitate payment and shipment of VI products|
In all of the above cases, VI avoids requesting extra or unnecessary personal information related to gender, sex, age, ethnicity, and so on that does not relate to the purpose.
VI adheres to the following principles:
In accordance with common practices, VI collects non-personally-identifying information on its website traffic. We may use third party services, such as Google Analytics, for this purpose. Information collected includes browser type, language preference, referring site, date, and time of visitor activity on the website. We may use this data externally in our reports about our audience, or internally to assess our websites’ performance.
For some activities, VI uses third party services such as Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox, and Basecamp. Your personal information may be present on these third party softwares in some cases, and are therefore subject to their privacy practices. VI considers the privacy implications of using these products, and does its best to adopt tools that both serve its needs and protect user privacy.
