Privacy Policy

Last updated: May 17, 2020

We are committed to respecting your privacy. Below you will find Our Privacy Policy which describes your privacy rights regarding Our collection, use, storage, sharing and protection of your (“User”, “You”, “Visitor”) personal information. It applies to the www.avvinue.com website (“Company”, “Our”, “Site”, “Us”, “We”) and all related Sites, applications, including mobile applications, services and tools regardless of how you access or use them.

Children under the age of 14 are not eligible to use the Site unsupervised and We ask that children not submit any personal information to us. If you are under the age of 14, you may only use this Site in conjunction with and under the supervision of your parents or guardians.

DATA COLLECTION

1.Aggregate Data

We may record certain web traffic and usage information, such as the number and frequency of Visitors to the Site. This information may include the internet browser used, a Visitor’s IP address, and the third-party websites accessed immediately before and after visiting the Site. We will use such information, if at all, only on an aggregate basis, and We will not disclose to third parties any data derived that could be used to identify a particular Visitor.

2.Personal Identification Information
We may collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit Our Site, register on the Site, subscribe to the newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form, use a public forum, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources We make available on Our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, phone number and email address. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily and knowingly submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personally identification information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities.

We use third-party payment solutions including PayPal and Stripe to process credit card payments. Credit card information provided to buy merchandise or additional services on the Site is used solely to determine that your card is valid, that sufficient credit is available to pay for the purchase and to apply the cost of your purchase to your card when the items are shipped. Credit card information you provide is transmitted across the internet securely using encryption from your browser to Our shopping partners’ secure order processing systems. Some versions of browsers and firewalls do not permit connection to secure servers. In such cases, you will not be able to connect to the server and therefore won’t be able to place an order through a secure connection. While no method is completely impenetrable, Our shopping partners utilize state-of-the-art encryption technology used in e-commerce today. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, while Our shopping partners are committed to protecting your personal information, they cannot entirely ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to them.

3.Non-Personal Identification Information

We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with Our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about User’s means of connection to Our Site, such as the operating system and the internet service providers utilized and other similar information. (See section on Aggregate Data)

4.Web Browser Cookies

Our Site may use “cookies” to enhance user experience (UX). User’s web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. Users may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the Site may not function properly.

5.Social Media Information

If you register or log into your account through a third-party social media service, We will have access to some of your third-party account information from that service, such as your name and other information in that account, as authorized by that service. You can disable the connection between Our Site and your third-party account at any time; but in instances where Our Site mandates User verification, registration using a third-party social media service may be required to ensure a safe fitness environment. If using a third-party social media service, please review their privacy policies as they are separate and apart from Avvinue’s Privacy Policy.

6.Invitations

If another member sends you an invitation through Our Site, We may receive your email address or phone number. If you are an invited guest, We will automatically send you an invitation to Our Site, and, if unanswered, a follow-up invitation. We store this contact information only to send these invitations and evaluate their success. You may unsubscribe from future invitations using the instructions in those messages. You may also contact us to request that We remove this information from Our database.

If User decides to opt-in to Our mailing list, they will receive emails that may include company news, updates, related product or service information, etc. If at any time the User would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, they may do so by contacting us via Our Site.
  • To protect Users from illegal activities

DATA SECURITY

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information and to honoring your choices for its intended use. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, We strive to maintain physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards. However, We make no warranty, guarantee, or representation that the use of Our Site is protected from viruses, security threats, or other vulnerabilities and that your information will always be secure.

While We have implemented commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure, We cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.

In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, We will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law.

  1. Sharing Your Personal Information

We do not sell, trade, or rent Users’ personal identification information to others. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding Visitors and Users with Our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined herein. We may use third-party service providers to help Us operate Our business and the Site or administer activities on Our behalf, such as sending out newsletters or surveys. We may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes provided you have given Us your permission.

  1. Third Party Websites & External Links

Users may find advertising or other content on Our Site that link to the sites and services of Our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licencors and other third parties. Our Privacy Policy applies to all links on Our Site. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from Our Site. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies.

     4. Advertising

Advertisements appearing on Our Site may be delivered to Users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile non-personal identification 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 does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

  1. Google Ad sense

Some of the ads may be served by Google. Google’s use of the DART “cookies” enables it to serve ads to Users based on their visit to Our Site and other sites on the Internet. DART uses “non-personally identifiable information” and does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, etc.
