What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our Site or use one of our mobile applications, we may collect your IP address, and standard web log information, such as your browser type and the pages you accessed on our website (“Usage Information”). Usage Information may be stored or accessed using a variety of technologies that may be downloaded to your personal computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone (a “Device”) whenever you visit or interact with our Service.
Personal and demographic information is collected when you purchase our products, create an account or use our Services. This certain information may come from data you provide directly, such as your name, email address, date of birth, or phone number, etc. (“Personal Information”), and such information as your gender, age, home address, income, etc. (“Demographic Information”), when you purchase a product or register an account with us, subscribe to any of our services or newsletters, respond to survey questions, requests or inquiries you make through our Site, and/or any other information you provide to us.
Elements of our Sites and Services may allow users to upload photos, media, bios, original content, and to share their experiences, such as reviews and comments. We cannot prevent others from recording or capturing any of your posted photos, videos, or information through various technologies used to capture website content. You should not post text, photos, and videos on our Sites or Services if you do not want others to see or possibly copy the media you post.
We may collect additional information from or about you in other ways not specifically described here. For example, we may collect information related to your contact with our customer support team or store results when you respond to a survey.
Do We Share Your Information?
We do not share your Personal Information with any unrelated third party except as expressly provided herein. Information is shared within our Sites and Services and any information or content that you voluntarily post using our Sites and Services will become available to the public. Please be mindful of your own privacy needs as you choose what to share and make public. We cannot control the privacy or security of information you choose to make public or share with others. We may share information with businesses that are legally part of Veritas. We may remove parts of information that identify you and share this anonymous data with other parties. We take reasonable measures to help protect your information from loss, unauthorized access, alteration, and misuse.
How Do We Use Your Information?
Veritas maintains a strict “no-spam” policy. If you register for an account on the Sites or Services, you may receive newsletters, notices and/or special offers via email or text message, unless you have requested otherwise at the time of registration.
We take commercially reasonable steps to safeguard your information and keep it confidential and free from any loss, misuse and unauthorized access, or disclosure. For example, when you enter sensitive Personal Information such as your credit card number via the Site, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. To help protect yourself and your information, choose a unique password for our Sites and do not use a password on our Sites that you would use on any other website or online service. If you discover inaccuracies or alterations in your Personal Information, or believe it to be at risk for any reason, we urge you to notify us immediately.
We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes concerning security breach notifications) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Site as promptly as possible, and without unreasonable delay, taking into account the legitimate needs of law enforcement or any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and/or to restore the reasonable integrity of the affected data system.
Third Party Advertisements
Policy requirements for Google Analytics Advertising Features
Google Analytics Advertising Features allow you to enable features in Analytics that aren’t available through standard implementations. Advertising features include:
- Remarketing with Google Analytics
- Google Display Network Impression Reporting
- Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
- Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data for advertising purposes, including the collection of data via advertising cookies and identifiers
By enabling the Advertising Features, you enable Google Analytics to collect data about your traffic via Google advertising cookies and identifiers, in addition to data collected through a standard Google Analytics implementation. Regardless of how you send data to Google Analytics (for example, via the Google Analytics tracking code, Google Analytics SDK, or the Measurement Protocol), if you use Google Advertising Features, you must adhere to this policy.
You will not identify users or facilitate the merging of personally identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google advertising product or feature unless you have robust notice of, and the user’s prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that identification or merger, and are using a Google Analytics feature that expressly supports such identification or merger. Irrespective of users’ consent, you must not attempt to disaggregate data that Google reports in aggregate.

- How visitors can opt-out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features you use, including through Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means (for example, the NAI’s consumer opt-out).
We also encourage you to point users to Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web.
European Union user consent policy
When using Google Analytics Advertising Features, you must also comply with the European Union User Consent Policy.
If you’ve enabled interest-based advertising, including Remarketing, with Google Analytics in connection with other Google services, you must follow the policies applicable to those Google services (like the Google Ads Policy for Personalized advertising and its sensitive category restrictions, and the Platform Program Policies). If you use Google Analytics to collect sensitive information about your visitors, as described in the Google Ads sensitive category restrictions, you may not use Google Analytics to collect data for the purpose of interest based advertising.
