Non-personal data

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “non-personal data” means information that does not directly identify you. Additionally, non-personal data means “aggregate” and “de-personalized” information, which is data VZO collects about the use of VZO Services, from which any personally identifiable data has been removed.

You recognize and agree that the analytics companies utilized by VZO may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products relating to your activities. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies.

Ad Serving Technology

VZO reserves the right to use and disclose the collected non-personal data for purposes of advertisement by VZO or VZO’s partners and contractors. VZO may employ third party ad serving technologies that use certain methods to collect information as a result of ad serving through Services. VZO or third parties operating the ad serving technology may use demographic and location information as well as information logged from your hardware or device to ensure that appropriate advertising is presented within the Service. VZO or third parties may collect and use data for this purpose including, but not limited to IP address (including for purposes of determining your approximate geographic location), UDID, software, applications, hardware, browser information, internet and on-line usage information and in-game information. The foregoing data may be used and disclosed in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the privacy policy of the company providing the ad serving technology.

You recognize and agree that the advertising companies who deliver ads for VZO may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies. These ad serving technologies are integrated into Services; if you do not want to be subject to this technology, do not use or access Services. Although VZO takes commercially reasonable steps to instruct such advertising companies to comply with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, VZO does not have access to or control of third party technologies.

VZO may use collected personal data for purposes of analyzing usage of the Services, providing customer and technical support, managing and providing Services (including managing advertisement serving) and to further develop the Services and other VZO services and products.
