What personal data we collect, and why we collect it
1. Collection of information: Vizymates collects information about you in 2 different ways:
1.1 Account Activation: When you create an account with us, we will ask you to provide certain information about yourself and/or your organisation. This information may include name, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, credit card number, and the product that you have purchased or wish to purchase. We will collect personal information such as this only when it has been voluntarily provided by you.
1.2 Cookies/IP Addresses: Vizymates’ primary website, www.vizymates.com.au does not collect permanent cookies.
Vizymates collects information about individuals through Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is unique to the computer through which you are connected to the Internet. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies allow a website to store and reference specific types of information while you are visiting it, and to keep your session “live” when you are logged in.
