First, we have a few fundamental principles at viStudio:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it to provide our services.
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t sell personal information. Your name and email address will never be given or sold to a 3rd party.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless it’s required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Like most website operators, viStudio 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. viStudio’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how viStudio’s visitors use its website.
From time to time, viStudio may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to viStudio’s websites choose to interact with viStudio in ways that require viStudio to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that viStudio gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at viStudio to provide a name, email address, and phone number. Those who engage in transactions with viStudio are asked to provide additional information, or connect with a social media service, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.
In each case, viStudio collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with viStudio. viStudio does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
viStudio may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. viStudio also has Fathom Analytics installed on our site as well as other analytic programs that help us gather feedback and make decisions on how to improve our service offerings. However, viStudio does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
viStudio discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on viStudio’s behalf or to provide services available at viStudio’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using viStudio’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
As an example, if you’re having trouble with choosing a winner (whether that be user error or a bug on our end) and you file a support ticket, an employee of viStudio may access your account to help decide how to best remedy the solution. This might include opening up your list of entries and seeing entrant information.
viStudio will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, viStudio discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when viStudio believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of viStudio, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of an viStudio website and have supplied your email address, viStudio may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with viStudio and our products. We primarily use our blog, Facebook page, and Twitter account to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. viStudio takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

We may store your data on servers provided by third party hosting vendors with whom we have contracted.

If viStudio, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that viStudio goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.
