MVC may collect personal information in two forms. One form is information that we expressly request you to provide in connection with certain activities. The second form is anonymous information that we automatically collect from your computer, phone, tablet, or other device.
MVC may use tools or third party analytical software to automatically collect and use certain non-personal data that does NOT directly enable MVC to identify you. The types of non-personal data MVC may collect and use include, but are not limited to: (i) device properties, including, but not limited to IP address, and non-personal data as reasonably required by MVC to enhance MVC products and services.
MVC may use and disclose to MVC’s partners and contractors the collected non-personal data for purposes of analyzing usage of the Services, managing and providing the Services and to further develop the Services and other MVC services and products.
You recognize and agree that the analytics companies utilized by MVC may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products relating to your activities. These companies (such as Google) collect and use information under their own privacy policies.
MVC may supplement your personal (as defined herein) and non-personal data with data received from third parties in connection with demographic, market and other analytics surveys or services.
MVC may display to you behaviorally targeted advertising. If you wish to “opt out” of certain targeted advertising, please visit www.youradchoices.com and/or www.networkadvertising.org. Please note that the links above may not reach all MVC’s advertising partners and certain behaviorally targeted advertising may still be displayed to you. If you want to be certain that no behaviorally targeted advertisements are not displayed to you, please do not use or access the Services. Additionally, please note that if you “opt out” it does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising. It just means that the advertising you see displayed will not be customized to you and your interests and may be less relevant to you.
Likely situations when you make personal data available to MVC include, but are not limited to: (i) registrations for contests and special events; adults using “tell a friend,” “email this page,” or other similar features; (ii) adults requesting technical support; and (iii) otherwise through use of MVC Services where personal data is required for use and/or participation.
The types of personal data may vary depending on the type of activity you are engaged in. The personal data MVC may collect, process and use about adults may include, but are not limited to your name, screen/nick name, MVC Services’ or third party service ID, e-mail address, phone number, photo or other image, birthdate, sex, address, avatar image, and location (only if directly identifiable to you, otherwise MVC treats location as non-personal data). We will only collect this data when we tell you that we are, and with your consent.
If you choose to use MVC’s “tell a friend” or a similar service about MVC Services or order a gift certificate for your friend, MVC may store your friend’s name and contact details that you provide to MVC.
If you opt in, MVC may use your personal data to send messages to you with informative and/or commercial content about MVC’s services or third party products and services MVC thinks may be of interest to you, such as new features and services, special offers and updated information.
Disclosure and Transfer of Personal Data
Data Retention, Correctness, Special Circumstances
Irrespective of the above, MVC may still retain some of the data to the extent such retention is necessary to resolve disputes, enforce MVC user agreements, and comply with technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity and operation of Services.
MVC may access, preserve and share your information when we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to: (i) respond to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) or otherwise to take action because we believe it is required or advisable under the law; (ii) detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; (iii) respond to your requests for customer service; or (iv) limit our legal liability or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of ourselves, any user of our Services, a third party or the general public including as part of investigations.
In the unlikely event that MVC believes that the security of your personal information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent you have given us your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail. You consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification.
Cookies, beacons and tracking
The Services may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags, locally shared objects, clear GIFs and web beacons. MVC treats information collected by cookies and similar technologies as non-personal data.
Cookies: A “cookie” is a small bit of record-keeping information that websites often store on a user’s computer. MVC’s cookies do not include personal data and are typically used to quickly identify your device and to “remember” you. You can disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent to your device; however, disabling cookies may affect your ability to use the Services.
Flash cookies & HTML5: MVC may also use Flash cookies (locally shared objects) and HTML5 storage (locally stored objects). Locally shared objects are small files similar to browser cookies and are used to remember your settings to personalize the look and feel of the Services. Locally shared objects only collect data in the aggregate. You may prevent locally shared objects from being placed by disabling locally stored objects in your browser or visit www.adobe.com. Locally stored objects, such as HTML5 Web Storage, are used for similar purposes as cookies but typically may contain a greater amount and different types of data than browser cookies.
Web Beacons and pixel tags: A “web beacon” or a “pixel tag” is an electronic image that allows MVC to count users who have visited certain pages or viewed certain advertisements. Web beacons, like cookies, do not include personal data. E-mails and other electronic communications MVC send to you may contain pixel tags that enable MVC to track your non-child usage of the communication, including whether the communication was opened and/or what links were followed, if any.
Third Party Terms and Conditions
Please note that your access to and use of the Services may be subject to certain third party terms and conditions and privacy policies. You recognize and agree that MVC is not liable for any such third party terms and conditions and their use of your personal data.
Please be aware of the open nature of certain social networking and other open features of the Services MVC may make available to you. You may choose to disclose data about yourself in the course of contributing user generated content to the Services. Any data that you disclose in any of these blogs, chats or the like is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality. MVC is not responsible for any personal data you choose to make public in any of these forums.
Any and all use of your personal data by MVC is governed by State of Florida law and not the laws where you may be located.
MVC makes good faith efforts to enable you to review, update or correct your personal data in MVC’s possession. In order to do so, please contact MVC at information[at]medicusveincare.com. MVC will need sufficient information from you to establish your identity and to verify your access request, and also to assist us in handling your request. Please note that even if personal data is changed or deleted according to your request, MVC may still retain some of your personal data to resolve disputes, enforce MVC user agreement(s), and comply with technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity and operation of MVC Services.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST MVC ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
