  1. Overview
    1. Veta Private Limited ("Veta," "we," "us" or "our")
    2. Veta’s Privacy Policy applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service ("Users").
    3. This Policy explains how we and some of the companies we work with collect, use, share and protect information in relation to website at www.veta.life, Veta applications (including mobile applications) made available by Veta, any software provided on or in connection with Veta and the services, features and content offered by Veta (together, "Service(s)"), and your choices about the collection and use of your information.
    4. By using our Service you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to share location based information, post content, including photos, videos, comments and other materials ("User Content"), to the Service and to share User Content publicly.
    5. Our Services are primarily designed to help you share information with your community and the world. Most of the information you provide us through the Services is information you are asking us to make public.
    6. This means that other Users may search for, see, use, or share any of your User Content that you make publicly available through the Service, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use (which can be found at www.veta.life/terms-and-conditions).
    7. If you choose to not agree with the entirety of this Privacy Policy, you may not use the Service.
  2. Collection of Information
    1. Basic information and additional information you may provide us directly:
      • Facebook®, Twitter®, or Google® usernames
      • Your profile related information made available by Facebook®, Twitter®, or Google®
      • Profile information that you may provide for your user profile such as your name, email address, phone number, and commonly used locations.
      • User Content (e.g., incident reports, photos, comments, and other materials) that you post to the Service.
      • Communications between you and Veta.
    2. Location information:
      • Veta may receive information about your location. For example, you may publish your location in your photos. You may also tell us your location when you setup your frequented locations.
      • We may also determine location by using other data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address.
      • We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, such as incident reports close to your frequented locations, and to improve and customize the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to network.
    3. Inviting friends to join Veta:
      • If you choose to invite your friends through a third-party social media site, then you will be prompted to set up a link to the third-party service and you understand that any information that such service may provide to us will be governed by this Privacy Policy.
      • If you choose to invite someone to the Service directly from the contacts list on your device and send a text or email from your personal account, you understand and agree that you are responsible for any charges that apply to communications sent from your device, and because this invitation is coming directly from your personal account, Veta does not have access to or control this communication.
    4. Analytics information:
      • We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Service.
      • We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.
    5. Cookies and similar technologies:
      • When you visit the Service, we may use cookies and similar technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use Veta and provide features to you.
      • We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to your devices, which may use cookies or similar technologies placed by us or the third party.
    6. Log file information:
      • When you use our Services, we may receive information (“Log Data”) such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, and cookie information.
      • We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications, use your account to authenticate to a third-party website or application, or visit a third-party service that includes a Veta button or widget.
      • We may also receive Log Data when you click on, view or interact with links on our Services, including links to third-party applications, such as when you choose to install another application through Veta.
      • Veta uses Log Data to provide, understand, and improve our Services, to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in, and to customize the content we show you, including ads.
      • We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our Users which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service.
    7. Links:
      • Veta may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means.
      • We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.
    8. Device identifiers:
      • When you use a mobile device to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more "device identifiers." Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device's operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Veta.
      • A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Service and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content.
      • Certain features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
    9. Metadata:
      • Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Content including a geotag (e.g., to mark your location to a photo), comments or other data.
      • This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive.
      • If you geotag your photo or tag your photo using an API then, your latitude and longitude will be stored with the photo and searchable.
  3. Commitment To Data Security
    1. Veta uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Veta and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Veta makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. Please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
    2. If Veta learns of a security systems breach, then we may, solely at our discretion, attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps.

We may share your information with such service providers subject to obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures, and on the condition that the third parties use your private personal data only on our behalf and pursuant to our instructions.
    2. We also may share your information as well as information from tools like cookies, log files, and device identifiers and location data, with third-party organizations that help us provide the Service to you. Our service providers will be given access to your information as is reasonably necessary to provide the Service under terms consistent with this Privacy Policy. We may also share certain information such as cookie data with third-party advertising partners. This information would allow third-party ad networks to, among other things, to customize advertisements.
    3. We share your Payment Information with payment services providers to process payments; prevent, detect and investigate fraud or other prohibited activities; facilitate dispute resolution such as chargebacks or refunds; and for other purposes associated with the acceptance of credit or debit cards.

    1. We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request, if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so.
    2. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to address security or technical issues; to protect Veta’s rights and property; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm.
    3. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm.
