Laws and Legal Rights.
Vivox may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) if it believes in good faith that it is required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process. Vivox may disclose personally identifiable information in special circumstances when it has reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the terms and conditions for its services, or to protect the safety and/or security of its users, Vivox or the general public.

How does Vivox protect your personal information?
Vivox strives to provide secure transmission of your information from your computer to Vivox’s servers through industry-standard techniques. For example, Vivox has put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures for the purpose of safeguarding and securing the information Vivox collects from its users.
You should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart security systems. As a result, while Vivox strives to protect your information, Vivox cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of any information you transmit to Vivox, and you do so at your own risk.
What does Vivox do to protect children’s privacy?
Protecting the privacy and online experience of children is especially important to Vivox. For that reason, Vivox never collects or maintains personally identifiable information from any person Vivox actually knows is under 13 years of age. In addition, no part of the Vivox service offering is designed for or directed to anyone under 13 years of age.
How can you access or correct your information?
You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending Vivox a request to email@example.com. To protect your privacy and security, Vivox will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
You may also opt-out from the processing by Vivox of your personal data by sending Vivox a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, if you do so, Vivox will not be in a position to provide its products and/or services to you.
You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to Vivox from Vivox’s system. The need to back up Vivox’s systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for Vivox to locate.
For how long is your personal data kept by Vivox?
