Privacy Policy
Your privacy is critically important to us.

It is Sofvie’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while using our services. This Privacy Policy applies to sofvie.com (hereinafter, “us” , “we”, “sofvie.com”, or “{subdomain}.sofvie.com”) and any subdomains, associated or derivative domain names owned by Sofvie Inc. We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the platform. We have adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain what information may be collected on our platform, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through our services and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources. This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and conditions posted on above, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our services. Depending on your activities when visiting our platform, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

Visitors and Users
Like most software operators, Sofvie collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Sofvie’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Sofvie’s visitors use its services. From time to time, Sofvie may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its applications. We will also use data collected from our users to analyze and predict trends using machine learning or other technologies. Sofvie also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users submitting content on the platform. Sofvie only discloses logged in user and visitor IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Sofvie’s applications choose to interact with Sofvie in ways that require Sofvie to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Sofvie gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign in with a username and password to use our software. Signing up for an account is not done through any of Sofvie’s applications but personal data gathered during the registration process or pulled from third party applycations may be used and stored by Sofvie.

Security
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We shall not be held responsible for any accidental loss or distribution of personal data.

Advertisements

These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Softname and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Sofvie discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Softname believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Softname, third parties or the public at large.
