Privacy Policy

Last revised: March 29, 2022


Your privacy is important to us. As part of our efforts to facilitate and make your experience with the VESPYR BRANDS, INC. (“VESPYR”) Website as user-friendly and enjoyable as possible, we may collect and use certain information you provide to us. This Privacy Policy addresses the collection, use, and disclosure of information that VESPYR may gather during your use of the Website. UNLESS OTHERWISE DEFINED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY, TERMS USED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY HAVE THE SAME MEANINGS AS IN THE WEBSITE TERMS OF USE.

Please review the entire policy to learn the types of End User information VESPYR gathers, how VESPYR uses that End User information, what End User information is disclosed and to what third parties, and how VESPYR safeguards your End User information.

Please also check back periodically as this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes by publishing the new Privacy Policy on the Website. The End User information VESPYR gathers is and will be subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time the information is gathered. Should you have any questions or concerns at any time, please feel free to contact us.

This Privacy Policy applies only to the VESPYR Website. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any websites managed, maintained, and/or hosted by third parties not directly affiliated with VESPYR that you may visit, e.g., via a link provided through the Website or on a website maintained by any third party. VESPYR does not control the privacy policies of other websites to which we may provide hyperlinks. We encourage you to learn more about the online privacy and data security policies of third party websites directly from such third parties, as their policies may differ from ours.

By submitting your information to us and by using the Website, VESPYR will assume that you have read, understood, and consent to the Agreement, which includes this Privacy Policy, the Website Terms of Use, and all other applicable VESPYR rules and policies. We also assume that you consent to VESPYR’ use of your information as described in the Agreement. If you do not consent, you should not access or use the Website.

  1. Information VESPYR Collects

    • A. Personal Information and Non-Identifying Information
      • We may ask you for personally identifiable information if, for example, you contact us requesting information or a demonstration of our services through the customer service chat box. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your full name, email address, and any other information that could be used to personally identify you. Additionally, if you choose to purchase a product through customer service, we may require your payment information.
      • We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Website, facilitate and complete transactions for you, and respond to correspondence from you. We may also use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your account information.
      • We may also combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Website, and to analyze and understand how the Website is used.
    • B. Usage Data
      • When you visit the Website, whether you are logged in or just browsing without logging in, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. The information sent automatically by your browser is referred to as “Usage Data.” This Usage Data may include information such as the manufacturer and model of your device; your Internet Service Provider (ISP); your device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (or other device identifier), browser type, and operating system; referring/exit pages; clickstream data; Website access times and dates, pages of the Website that you visit, the time spent on those pages, and information you search for on the Website; and other statistics. Usage Data also includes geolocation data. The Website collects and uses geolocation data to improve website experience and marketing services.
      • We may use this information for technical administration of the Website, including to monitor and analyze use of the Website, to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of the Website, and to better tailor the Website to End Users’ needs.
      • Usage Data may be non-identifying or it may be associated with you. Whenever we associate Usage Data with Personal Information, we will treat it as Personal Information.
  2. Collection of Information

    • VESPYR may use a number of different techniques and technologies to collect Personal Information, Non-Identifying Information, and Usage Data. For example, VESPYR may use cookies, log files, clear gifs, pixel tags, embedded scripts, and/or other technology used to monitor your use of the Website.
    • A. Forms
      • We may request certain information from you through the use of forms when you send us correspondence through the Website, e.g., when you are communicating with customer service through the chat box. B. Cookies
      • As is regular practice on many websites, the Website uses cookies and other technologies to help us understand which parts of the Website are more popular and how much time users spend there. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to and stored on your device from our server. Cookies may, for example, allow a user to enter a password less frequently or remember a user’s preferences during an online session.
      • The Website uses cookies to determine whether an End User is active and for other business purposes, such as website experience and marketing enhancements. The Website may include first-party cookies (i.e., cookies that send data directly to VESPYR and agents and contractors acting on behalf of VESPYR, including cookies used to monitor, analyze, and administer the Website) and third-party cookies (i.e., cookies that send data to our contractors for their commercial use). The cookies on our Website may also track Internet activity across different websites. Since cookies are now used as industry standard, most devices automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your device’s settings to decline them. If you prefer not to enable cookies, you may choose to disable them; however, please note that certain features on the Website will not be available to you once cookies are disabled.
    • C. Usage Data
      • Usage Data are collected automatically by the Website’s servers and software. For example, because the Website automatically collects Usage Data for all End Users that visit the Website, your Website session will be tracked. You agree that we may collect and use technical data and related information, including technical information about your device, system and application software, and peripherals, to maintain and support the Website generally.
      • Additionally, in some of our email messages, VESPYR may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Website. When an End User clicks onto one of these URLs, the End User will pass through our server before arriving at the destination Web page. VESPYR may track this click-through data to help us determine End User interest in certain subject matter and measure the effectiveness of these End User communications. You can avoid being tracked in this way by not clicking text or graphic links in emails from VESPYR.
      • Finally, we may use clear gifs or pixel tags, which are tiny graphic images, in order: (i) to advise us of what parts of the Website End Users have visited, (ii) to measure the effectiveness of any searches End Users perform, and (iii) to enable us to send emails in a format that End Users can read and tell us whether such emails have been opened in order to ensure us that we are sending messages that are of interest to End Users.
    • D. Tracking
      • Some Web browsers may be configured to send Do Not Track signals to websites, or users may use similar mechanisms, to indicate a user’s preference that certain web technologies not be used to track the user’s online activity. The Website does not accept or process such Do Not Track signals or similar mechanisms.
  3. Use and Sharing of Information by VESPYR

    • The End User information that VESPYR collects may be added to our databases and used for business purposes, including for marketing and promotional purposes, for a statistical analysis of End Users’ behavior, for product development, for content improvement, or to customize the content and layout of the Website. In addition, VESPYR will, on occasion, send emails to you about the Website or third-party products. If you do not want to receive email from us, visit the “Opt Out” or “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any VESPYR email to remove yourself from continued receipt of such email messages.
    • VESPYR’S policy is not to share the End User information it collects with third parties other than as specified below, or where an End User expressly consents to our sharing of certain information with a third party. We may share End User information with third parties under the following circumstances:
    • A. Business Partners and Vendors

      • Your California Privacy Rights. California residents who have an established business relationship with VESPYR may choose to opt out of VESPYR’s disclosing personal information about them to third parties for marketing purposes. If you do not want us to share your personal information with such third parties, please send us your name, email address, street address and phone number to Your opt out request will be processed within 30 days of the date it was received.
      • Under certain circumstances, you may avoid having VESPYR share your information with its business partners and vendors by not granting VESPYR permission to share your information.

    • C. Business Transfers
      • As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, sell, or share assets in connection with, for example, a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets, or bankruptcy. In such transactions, information about End Users generally is often a transferred business asset. In the event that VESPYR itself or substantially all of VESPYR’S assets are acquired, information about our End Users may be one of the transferred assets.
    • D. Compliance with Law and Protection of VESPYR and Others
      • We may release End User information when we believe, in our sole discretion, that release is appropriate: to comply with the law, including but not limited to, in response to a subpoena served on VESPYR; to enforce or apply the Agreement, including the Website Terms of Use and other applicable agreements, rules, and policies; to protect the rights, property, or safety of VESPYR, our End Users, or others; or to prevent activity that we believe, in our sole discretion, may be or may become illegal, unethical, or legally actionable (including exchanging End User information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection).
    • E. Aggregate Site Use Information
      • We may release aggregate End User information (without revealing any Personal Information about you) to advertisers and other third parties in order to promote or describe use of the Website.

Unless expressly stated to the contrary, VESPYR makes no representation that the Website is appropriate or will be available for use in other locations.
    • If you access the Website from outside the United States, you acknowledge and agree that your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers and servers located outside of your state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. Your consent to the Agreement followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to the transfer of such information to the United States and the collection, use, and disclosure of your information in accordance with United States law and our Privacy Policy.
  5. Security

    • We employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. For example, we may use commercially reasonable security measures such as encryption, firewalls, and secure socket layers (SSL) to protect End User information.
    • Please note that no security system is impenetrable. Accordingly, we do not guarantee the security of our databases, nor that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet or other network. Any information you transmit to VESPYR, you do at your own risk. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting through the Website in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
