Privacy Policy

Welcome to VJLoops.com "A royalty free stock footage, visuals and digital media marketplace"

 

Changes to This Policy

We may update this Policy from time to time. If we do, we’ll let you know about any material changes, either by notifying you on the Site or by sending you an email. New versions of this Policy will never apply retroactively — we’ll tell you the exact date they go into effect. If you keep using VJLoops after a change, that means you accept this Policy.

 

Who We Are

VJLoops, (together with its subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, consultants, employees, officers, and directors — collectively, “VJLoops,” “we,” or “us”) provides services that help people bring mixed multimedia creative projects to life. Our main service is a stock media platform for creative editing projects, live performances like concerts, festivals and events that require digital media. We are a DBA based in Lockport, NY.

 

How This Policy Applies

This Policy describes the information we collect from you, how we use that information and our legal basis for doing so. It also covers whether and how that information may be shared and your rights and choices regarding the information you provide to us. If you see a capitalized word, it’s defined in our Terms of Use. We use cookies and similar technologies, as described in our Cookie Policy.

By using the Services offered by VJLoops, you’re acknowledging you have agreed to our Terms of Use and that you have read and understood this Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy.

 

What We Collect and Receive

In order for you to create an account on VJLoops and use our Services, we need to collect and process certain information. Depending on your use of the Services, that may include:

You may decline to provide us with your information. However, this will limit your ability to register for an account or use our Services. For example: Downloading free content requires you to sign up as a buyer.  Submitting content for sale requires you to sign up as a contributor. You may review, change or remove your information through your account settings.

 

How We Use This Information

We use the information we collect for the following purposes:

 

European Union Users

Data protection law in Europe requires a “lawful basis” for collecting and retaining personal information from citizens or residents of the European Economic Area. Our lawful bases include:

 

For example, we use identity, device, and location information to prevent fraud and abuse and to keep the Services secure. We may also send you promotional communications about our Services, subject to your right to control whether we do so. 

 

We analyze how users interact with our Site so we can understand better what elements of the design are working well and which are not working so well. This allows us to improve and develop the quality of the online experience we offer all our users. 

 

How This Information Is Shared

Information that’s shared publicly

When you create an account, we create a basic profile page for you on VJLoops, containing your username, the date the account was created, and a list of content you have purchased or sold depending if you are a buyer or a seller. As a customer your profile is private. Your username appears with the comments you post and messages you send on VJLoops and, if your profile is set to public, people can click your username to view it. If you make your profile public, others will be able to see the following things:

If you would like to have a public profile, but don’t want others to see your name or profile image on the site, you may choose an account image or name that is not identifiable (e.g., VJ40123). You can modify or delete certain information associated with your account (such as your username, profile image, biography and location) from your account settings, and you can change your privacy settings if you want to make your profile private or adjust the default settings.

Contributors are also asked to verify their identities before submitting content. Once this has been done, the creator’s Verified Name will be publicly displayed on their account profile and on any pages their media is featured.

 

Information that isn’t shared publicly

The following data will not be publicly displayed or revealed to other users:

 

Information that’s shared with trusted third-party services

We may share your information with certain trusted third-party services to help us provide, improve, promote, or protect VJLoops’s Services (like when we partner with payment processors, or use services that help us manage our ads on other sites). When we share data with third-party services that support our delivery of the VJLoops Services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your personal information at least to the same standards we do. We may also share information that’s aggregated and anonymized in a way that it doesn’t directly identify you.

 

Information that’s shared with VJLoops Contributors

When you purchase content, the contributor will know the amount in dollars you have purchased, the license type, and the resolution you have selected. Contributors never receive personally identifiable information, credit card details or other payment information.

Contact us if you receive a request for information that seems inappropriate or excessive by anyone claiming to be from VJLoops.com.

 

Information that’s shared to protect VJLoops and comply with the law

We do reserve the right to disclose personal information when we believe that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect VJLoops’s legal rights, property, or the safety of VJLoops, its employees, users, or others.  We take copyright and infringement of trademarks very seriously. Contributors agree to upload content that they have created or have the legal right to submit for commercial royalty free use. 

 

Links to other websites and services

Our Site may include links to other websites or services whose privacy practices may differ from VJLoops’s. When you use a link to an external site or service, the privacy policy and data processing disclosures for that site or service governs.

 

Retention

We will retain your information as long as your account is active, as necessary to provide you with the Services or as otherwise set forth in this Policy. We will also retain and use this information as necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect VJLoops’s legal rights.

We also collect and maintain aggregated, anonymized or pseudonymized information which we may retain indefinitely to protect the safety and security of our Site, improve our Services or comply with legal obligations.

 

Data Transfers

Because VJLoops is a US-based company, your information will be collected and processed in the United States. The United States has its own laws governing data protection and government access to information. The rules that protect your personal information under United States law may be different than in your home country. If you choose to use the Services, you need to agree to our Terms of Use, which set out the contract between VJLoops and its users.

 

Your Rights

Users residing in certain countries, including the EU, are afforded certain rights regarding their personal information. Except where an exception or exemption applies, these rights include the ability to access, correct, and request deletion of your personal information. While these rights are not applicable globally, all VJLoops users can manage their personal information, as further described below, in their account settings.

You can request a downloadable copy of your personal data from VJLoops from our account settings page. To modify or delete the personal information you’ve provided to us, please log in and update your profile. You may also delete your account by contacting us directly through the verified email on record. We will contact you to verify your account and after you have passed the verification process your account will be deleted. We may retain certain information as required by law or as necessary for our legitimate business purposes.

 

Email and Mobile Notifications

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. We try to keep emails to a minimum and give you the ability to opt in and out to any marketing communications we send.  By signing up to the site you agree to be enrolled in our email marketing campaign.

We will send you email relating to your transactions on VJLoops. You may also elect to receive certain marketing email communications, in accordance with your preferences, and from which you may opt out at any time by adjusting your notification settings. If you download the VJLoops app (in development), you can manage the notifications you receive on your mobile device in your profile settings.

We’ll also send you service-related announcements when it’s necessary to do so.

 

Security

We take security seriously, and the security of your personal data is important to us. We follow industry-standard practices to protect the data we collect and maintain, including using Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt information as it travels over the internet. No method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is completely secure, so VJLoops cannot guarantee its absolute security. Your account information is protected by a password, which you should choose carefully and keep secure. We encourage all users to enable two-factor authentication (in development) in account settings to further protect their account.

We have a Security Incident Response Team (SIRT) and protocol in place in the event of a data breach. We encourage the responsible disclosure ofvulnerabilities of our Services by emailing [email protected], and we will invite valid disclosures to our bug bounty program (in development).
