Collection of PII

Although not an exhaustive list, the Personally Identifiable Information we collect may include:

Event Organisers & Suppliers (Clients)

iVvy collects Personally Identifiable Information from you when you voluntarily provide it to us, such as when you register for access to the Services, contact us with enquiries or use certain Services. The Personally Identifiable Information we may collect includes without limitation your name, email address, telephone numbers, address and other personally identifiable information. In some cases we may collect your credit card information to allow you to pay for the Services.

Event Attendees

Your Personally Identifiable Information may be collected by iVvy if you voluntarily register for an event through an Event Organiser's account or if you request a booking or a proposal for a service through the iVvy systems, or your data is uploaded into the system by one of our Event Organisers. This Personally Identifiable Information may include your name, email address, phone number, address, bank and credit card details (including expiry dates) if required for payments and other personally identifiable information. Event Organisers can also create event registration websites to collect virtually any information from you. If an Event Attendee voluntarily provides that information in connection with registration for an event or otherwise, it will be available to iVvy and will be held by us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Our Use of Personally Identifiable Information

In addition to any other purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, we may use the Personally Identifiable Information we collect:

We use your Personally Identifiable Information to create your account, to communicate with you about products and services you’ve purchased, to offer you additional products and services, and to bill you. We also use that information to the extent necessary to enforce our Website terms of service and to prevent imminent harm to persons or property.

Opting out

If at any time you no longer wish to receive any additional marketing material from us or do not want your information disclosed for direct marketing or survey purposes, contact our Privacy Officer and we will remove your details from our marketing database.

  • to conduct promotions or competitions in connection with our business;

Security

iVvy endeavors to protect the confidentiality of its client's information, account information and personal communications to the fullest extent possible and consistent with applicable laws. To protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of information that is collected from clients, iVvy has physical, electronic, and managerial security procedures in place.

Considerations when you send information to us electronically

While we do all we reasonably can to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure, including investing in security software, no data transfer over the internet is 100% secure. The open nature of the internet is such that information exchanged via the internet may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. If you send us any information, including (without limitation) Personally Identifiable Information, it is sent at your own risk.

If you access another website from our websites, you do so and provide Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with the terms and conditions under which the provider of that website operates.

Modification of client information

You may request access to your Personally Identifiable Information or correct any inaccurate or out of date information (including unsubscribing from any mail lists) by contacting our Privacy Officer using the details below or by updating your information by logging into the iVvy software (https://www.ivvy.com/a/[youraccountname]). 

Retention and Deletion

iVvy may retain your Client Information as long as you continue to use the Services. It may also be necessary for us to retain your Personally Identifiable Information to comply with applicable law, guidelines, codes or regulatory requirements. You may close your account by contacting us. Even if we delete your Personally Identifiable Information it may persist on backup or archival media and other information systems.

Third party websites

We are not responsible for the content, privacy or security practices or the content of any third party websites accessed from our websites and we make no representations or warranties in respect of those websites.  You must therefore read the third party's privacy policy and satisfy yourself as to the content and appropriateness of that policy.

How we modify this Privacy Policy

iVvy may from time to time update its Privacy Policy by posting an amended privacy policy that is always accessible by clicking on the "Privacy Policy" link on iVvy's homepage.

You should check the Privacy Policy through this link periodically (including on each occasion you provide us with Personally Identifiable Information) for modifications by clicking on the link provided near the top of the Privacy Policy for a listing of material modifications and their effective dates. The new version will become effective on the date it’s posted, which will be listed at the top of the page as the new Effective Date.

If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on the Website prior to the change becoming effective.

Dealing with a complaint

If you make a complaint about a privacy matter, our Privacy Officer will respond as soon as possible (but within 14 days) and advise you who in our company will have responsibility for investigating and managing your complaint. 

We will try to resolve your complaint within 30 days of receiving it.  If this is not possible, we will contact you and provide you with an estimate of the time it will take to investigate and manage the complaint.
