Use and Disclosure of Information

We use any PII we collect to administer your account, provide you with administrative notifications concerning your account and the Services, improve and enhance the Services, monitor and analyze trends and usage of the Services, respond to your questions and inquiries, conduct market research, and for troubleshooting the Services. We may also use your contact information to send you promotional emails about us, the Services and upcoming events. You have the right to opt-out of receiving such promotional emails in the manner described below.

We do not sell PII to, or share any PII with, any unaffiliated third parties, except as disclosed in this Policy under “Third Party Services.”  We may, however, provide aggregate anonymous data and statistics to third parties concerning usage of the Services, but this will never include any PII.

Additionally, if you contact us other than through the “Contact” feature on the Site or in the Application, we may keep a record of your correspondence, including any personal information contained therein.  A request for service, support, or information may be forwarded by us to third parties not affiliated with us, as may be required to respond to the request.

By using the Services, you agree to let us collect and use information within the guidelines of this Policy. If we revise our Policy, we will post changes on this page and note the effective date so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it.  We also will use reasonable efforts to contact you by email to provide notice of any such revisions.

If we materially change our practices regarding collection or use of your PII, your PII will continue to be governed by the Policy under which it was collected, unless you have been provided notice and have not objected to this change.

By submitting any PII through the Services, you understand and consent to the collection and use of such information, in accordance with this Policy, within the United States.

Children

This Site is intended only for adults 18 years of age or older.  We do not knowingly collect PII from children under 13 years of age. If we learn that we have PII of a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information.

Non-Personal Information

The Site may also collect through cookies certain information that is not personally identifiable, such as IP addresses, geographic regions, browser version, device information, operating system and other websites you may have passed through to reach the Services, as further described in the section above on Cookies.

We may use third-party providers to host our Site, databases and other content relating to the Services, to help operate or promote the Services, and to provide related marketing services.  We may share anonymous statistical information, but never PII, with these service providers and other third parties that provide services for our business.

Our third-party analytics and hosting service providers maintain log files for traffic that visits our Site. We have access to this anonymous analytical data but we do not link any such information to PII.  Log files are used to manage traffic loads and information technology requirements for providing reliable service.  Information collected by our providers that may be reported to us includes browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data.

Legally Compelled Disclosures

We may disclose user information (which may include PII) to government authorities and to other third parties when compelled to do so by legal process, at our discretion, or otherwise as required or permitted by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders and subpoenas.  We also may disclose user information as necessary when we have reason to believe that someone is causing injury to or interference with our rights or the Site, our customers or other users of the Site, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

Right to Opt-Out

If may opt-out from receiving our promotional emails by clicking on an opt-out or unsubscribe link within the e-mail you receive or by sending a message to our Contact email address set forth in the promotional email or on this Site.  A request to opt-out of promotional emails will only apply as of the date of your request and may take up to 10 days to process, and during such time you may still receive promotional emails. Please understand that if you opt-out of receiving promotional emails from us, we may still contact you for administrative purposes in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us, including to advise you of any revisions to this Policy or as may be required by applicable law.

Security

We use reasonable security methods to safeguard the information we collect from you through the Site and Application.  All payment information is transmitted securely to our service provider Dwolla, Inc. See the below section on Third Party Services.

However, because no security system is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of your data on the servers we use that are hosted by a third-party provider. In addition, because Internet communication is generally unsecure, we cannot warrant the security of your information or guarantee that the information you transmit through our Site or Application may not be intercepted, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

You should be cautious about using open, unsecured Internet WiFi connections any time you are transmitting any PII to us.  We strongly advise that you use a secure connection to interact with the Services any time you access your account or submit PII.

In the unlikely event we believe that the security of your PII data in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development or take other actions as may be required by applicable laws.  If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances and in compliance with applicable laws, and if we have your e-mail address we may notify you by e-mail as well as by postal mail if we have your mailing address.  You consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification. 

Business Transfers

In the event that Vitellus merges with or is acquired by a third party, or substantially all of our assets are acquired by one or more third parties, as a result of an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation or liquidation, PII may be assigned or transferred to our successor, merged entity or new owner of such assets.

Third Party Links

The Site provides links to various third-party websites over which we have no control.  The privacy practices of those sites are subject to the privacy policies posted on those sites and may differ from ours. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any websites you visit.

Indications of interest in a public offering of our securities involve no obligation or commitment of any kind.

No governmental agency or other authority has approved or disapproved any aspect of the Company, including the offering of any securities issued by the Company.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS:

We make statements in this website that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. The words “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “seek,” “may,” and similar expressions or statements regarding future periods are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that could cause our actual results, performance or achievements, or industry results, to differ materially from any predictions of future results, performance or achievements that we express or imply in this website.

The forward-looking statements included in this website are based upon our current expectations, plans, estimates, assumptions and beliefs that involve numerous risks and uncertainties. Assumptions relating to the foregoing involve judgments with respect to, among other things, future economic, competitive and market conditions and future business decisions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and many of which are beyond our control.

These statements also involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the Company's actual results to be materially different from those expressed or implied by any forward-looking statement.
