Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Viewport Industries we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • 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 store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.

Viewport Industries Limited (“Viewport Industries”) operates several websites including viewportindustries.com and shop.viewportindustries.com. It is Viewport Industries’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites. Please note that our online store is operated by Shopify and is fully PCI compliant.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Viewport Industries 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. Viewport Industries’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Viewport Industries’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Viewport Industries may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Viewport Industries also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Viewport Industries only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Viewport Industries’s websites choose to interact with Viewport Industries in ways that require Viewport Industries to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Viewport Industries gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who leave a comment on our blog for an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Viewport Industries – by purchasing a product or service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.

In each case, Viewport Industries collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Viewport Industries. Viewport Industries 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Viewport Industries may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Viewport Industries may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Viewport Industries does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Viewport Industries 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 Viewport Industries’s behalf or to provide services available at Viewport Industries’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 Viewport Industries’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Viewport Industries 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, Viewport Industries discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Viewport Industries believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Viewport Industries, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Viewport Industries website and have supplied your email address, Viewport Industries 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 Viewport Industries and our products. We primarily use our  blog 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. Viewport Industries takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
