This privacy statement applies to our online privacy practices and may apply to our offline data collection. If you use our products, other privacy disclosures and information may apply.
Notice to End Users
In general, our Services are intended for use by Organizations, administered to you by your Organization, and subject to your Organization’s policies, if any. This means that in most cases we are collecting and processing your personal information on behalf of your Organization. In these cases, we are generally acting as a processor of your personal information, processing the information according to your Organization’s instructions, because your Organization is the controller. It is primarily your Organization, as the controller, that controls what personal information about you we collect and how we use it. If you have privacy related questions or concerns about your Organization’s privacy practices or the choices your Organization has made to share your information with us or any other third party, you should reach out to your Organization’s administrator or see your Organization’s privacy policies. PacketViper is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of our Customers, which may differ from those set forth in this Policy.

This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and PacketViper may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents, and business partners.

Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information
PacketViper is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, asset sale, dissolution, or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Agents, Consultants, and Related Third Parties: PacketViper, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases, and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
Legal Requirements: PacketViper may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary (i) to comply with a legal obligation, (ii) to protect and defend the rights or property of PacketViper or its customers or business partners, (iii) to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) to protect against legal liability.
Data Transfers: All Personal Data collected by PacketViper may be stored anywhere in the world, including but not limited to, in the United States, in the cloud, on our servers, on the servers of our affiliates, or the servers of our service providers. Your Personal Data may be accessible to law enforcement or other authorities pursuant to a lawful request. By providing information to PacketViper, you consent to the storage of your Personal Data in these locations.
Specifically, our Website servers are located in the United States, and our third party-service providers, which include, but may not always be limited to, Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), Google Cloud Platform (“GCP”), and their partners, operate in the United States and in other countries around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in any number of places around the world. Therefore, your personal information may be processed outside the European Economic Area, and in countries that are not subject to an adequacy decision by the European Commission and that may not provide for the same level of data protection in the European Economic Area. In this event, we will ensure that such recipient offers an adequate level of protection, for instance by entering into standard contractual clauses for the transfer of data as approved by the European Commission (Art. 46 GDPR), or we will ask you for your prior consent to such international data transfers.
You can visit the Site without providing any Personal Data. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data, you may not be able to use certain Services. Even if you opt out, we may still collect and use non-Personal Data regarding your activities on our websites or information from the advertisements on third-party websites for non-interest-based advertising purposes, such as to determine the effectiveness of the advertisements.
Email and Telephone Communications
If you would like to discontinue receiving promotional communications from us, you may update your email preferences by using the “Unsubscribe” link found in emails we send to you.
We maintain telephone “do-not-call” and “do-not-mail” lists as mandated by law. We process requests to be placed on do-not-mail, do-not-phone, and do-not-contact lists within sixty (60) days after receipt, or such shorter time as may be required by law.
“Do Not Track”
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. PacketViper does not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals. For information about “do-not-track”, please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.org/.
Cookies and Interest-Based Advertising
You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer or remove them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences. Please note that cookie-based opt-outs are not effective on mobile applications. However, on many mobile devices, application users may opt out of certain mobile ads via their device settings.
The online advertising industry also provides websites from which you may opt-out of receiving targeted ads from our data partners and our other advertising partners that participate in self-regulatory programs.
To be clear, whether you are using our opt-out or an online industry opt-out, these cookie-based opt-outs must be performed on each device and browser that you wish to have opted out. For example, if you have opted out on your computer browser, that opt-out will not be effective on your mobile device. You must separately opt out on each device.
Our website may contain links to other websites for news and other information. Our Policy only applies to the PacketViper website and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites. Links to other websites do not imply that PacketViper endorses or has reviewed such other websites. You should check the privacy policies of those sites before providing your Personal Data to them.
Rights of Access, Rectification, Erasure, and Restriction
Although PacketViper makes good faith efforts to provide individuals with access to their Personal Data, there may be circumstances in which PacketViper is unable to provide access, including but not limited to: where the information contains legal privilege, would compromise others’ privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy in the case in question, or where it is commercially proprietary.
If PacketViper determines that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made and a contact point for any further inquiries. To protect your privacy, PacketViper will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your Personal Data.
PacketViper takes reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no internet or email transmission or digital storage mechanism is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from the Services may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data to PacketViper via the internet.
