1. When do We collect information?
We collect personal information, such as names, addresses. e-mail addresses, hobbies or activity information, demographic information (age, gender, etc.), employment and job preferences, food or other preference information, and the like, when voluntarily submitted by a Member. Members may choose to submit personal information online to create an account, rate a service or product, enter promotions, or obtain information or submit a comment, register for Vibe Agent program or Vibe Party, Viber TV or place an order. We may also obtain contact lists, demographic, and other information from other sources. For the convenience of our Visitors and Members and to better serve you, we combine the data.
We make a special effort to advise children to get parental permission before providing information, and urge parents to supervise their children’s online use. We may ask for age information from children so that we can provide age-relevant content and fulfil certain legal obligations; if we learn we are dealing with a child (as defined by local law), we may ask for the e-mail address of a parent and make an effort to contact them to determine if the child has permission to provide information to us. As a parent you may deny or disable your child’s account by emailing us with the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
