Vinli's Privacy Policy

Last Updated: April 18, 2016

This Vinli Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) sets out what information we collect through the websites, devices and mobile applications provided by Vinli, how we collect it, and what we do with it. Vinli Inc. (“Vinli”, “our”, “we” or “us”), located at 2203 Commerce St., Dallas, Texas 75201, USA, is a technology research and development corporation that develops products and services, and hosts certain forums, websites, and mobile applications for visitors (“you” or “your”) and registered software developers (“Developer”) to view and post comments and questions in connection with Vinli’s products and services. Vinli is committed to protecting your privacy. Because protecting your privacy is important to us, you may always submit concerns regarding our Privacy Policy or our privacy practices by contacting us by any means provided in the “How to Contact Us” section below. If you choose to write us an email, please reference the Privacy Policy in your subject line. Vinli will attempt to respond to all reasonable concerns and inquiries expeditiously. Our Privacy Policy covers information you submit and we obtain about you through our website, mobile applications, products, Developer portal (“Developer Portal”) and other sources (collectively, the “Vinli Services”). You may review this privacy policy at any time from the following location: www.vin.li/privacy

For All Non-US Residents

If you purchasing, accessing or using any Vinli Service from outside of the United States, or otherwise contacting us from outside of the United States, please be aware that your personal information may be transferred to, stored or processed in the United States, where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, but please be assured that we take steps to protect your privacy. By accessing or using any Vinli Service, you consent and understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Policy.

You Will Not be Spammed by Vinli

We may periodically send you email communications inviting you to participate in surveys, as well as occasional newsletters, fulfillment communications, Developer Portal announcements and promotional emails. If you no longer want to receive these email communications, you must request that Vinli discontinue sending you email by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email, or by cancelling your Developer Portal membership as described in “Our Opt-Out Policy” section below.

Information We Collect

Vinli collects, uses and shares information about our customers and the users of Vinli Services. To purchase products or use certain Vinli Services, you are required to give us certain contact information and personal data (e.g., your full name, physical address, email address, etc.). If you fail to provide certain information, you will be unable to purchase or use certain features of our products or access the full functionality of the Vinli Services.

  • Vinli collects and provides personally identifiable information and other related data (including vehicle-associated data (e.g., VIN and location data) collected by Vinli) to our agents and third party partners.
  • When you use Vinli Services, Vinli collects and processes information about your actual physical location. The Vinli Services collect location data through various means, including GPS, IP address, and information received from cell phone towers, Wi-Fi access points and other sensors.
  • Vinli also uses various technologies, including cookies, to tell us and our partners more about the kinds of browsers and devices you are using to access and enjoy Vinli Services. The Vinli Services may also collect other personal information about you, including your vehicle’s VIN.

How We Use and Share the Information We Collect

Vinli uses the information it collects through the Vinli Services (including personal and location information) for several purposes, including, without limitation:

  • processing orders and other transactions made through the Vinli Services;
  • augmenting user information with statistical information available from a third party;
  • sharing, licensing and selling this information to third parties for business, marketing and research purposes, including, but not limited to, personalizing and enhancing your Vinli experience, allowing Vinli and its third party partners to deliver content to you, providing other products and services to you, and researching user and vehicle behavior;
  • sharing, licensing and selling this information with third-party application developers and application providers in accordance with the “Third-Party Applications” section below;
  • combining this information with information from other Vinli users to create aggregate data, which may be shared, licensed or sold to third parties for business and marketing purposes; and
  • contacting you about our products and services and providing direct offers or promotions to you.

For example, Vinli may collect, share, license and sell certain information related to your geographic location or other information to third-party advertisers with the ability to target their ads to you or other commercial information to further enhance your Vinli experience.

In addition, we reserve the right to disclose your information, including personally identifiable information and location data as required by law or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Vinli.

If Vinli goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you agree that your personally identifiable information may be transferred to such entities. In such cases, we may publish certain details about such event on our websites. Unless you expressly request us delete your personally identifiable information by contacting us by any means provided in the “How to Contact Us” section below, Vinli may use and retain the information collected through the Vinli Services for as long as necessary to serve the business purposes of Vinli in compliance with this policy.

Sharing With Third-Party Application Developers and Providers

The Vinli Service is utilized by certain third-party application developers.  Users will log into their Vinli account when utilizing these third-party applications or certain approved third-party applications may authenticate to the Vinli Service through a back-end connection.  Vinli shares various types of user information (including personally identifiable information and location data) with these third-party application developers and providers who develop or provide applications usable through the Vinli Services.  Third-party developers are required to abide by Vinli’s terms and conditions applicable to such developers.  However, Vinli has no responsibility or liability for, or control over, the data Vinli provides after such data has been provided to the third-party application developers and providers.  You are encouraged to review each such third party’s applicable terms and conditions and privacy policy (e.g., the end-user license agreement for the third party applications you obtain through the Vinli App Store) to learn more about how your information may be used by that third party.

Other Websites

The Vinli Services may contain links to other internet sites that are not operated or controlled by Vinli. We cannot control and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

California Shine the Light Law

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we disclosed your personal information as defined under that statute, for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the categories of that kind of personal information that was disclosed to them. If you are a California resident and you wish to make such a request you may by contacting us by any means provided in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

How to Edit or Correct Your Personal Information

To change or delete your personally identifiable information from the Vinli database, please contact us by any means provided in the “How to Contact Us” section below. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to respond to your request within 30 days of its submission.

If you wish to terminate your account or request that we no longer use your personal information, contact us by any means provided in the “How to Contact Us” section below. If you terminate your account or ask that we no longer use your personal information, we will use reasonable efforts to instruct our third party partners with whom we have shared your information of your request.

Commitment to Data Security

The Vinli Services have certain commercially reasonable security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information submitted through them. However, and as with any transmission over the internet, there is always some element of risk involved in sending personal information online. Remember to keep your passwords private and secure — you should not share this information with anyone. If you have any questions about the security of the Vinli Services, please contact us through any means as stated in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

Commitment to Children’s Privacy

  • Vinli Does Not Seek To Collect From Children Under 13 Years Of Age

Vinli takes children’s privacy seriously and we do not seek to collect individually identifiable information about children under 13 years of age. If Vinli learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information through the websites, products or the Developer Portal, in contravention of these measures, Vinli will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from its databases and to not use such information for any purpose.

  • California Minors

If you are a California resident who is under 18 and a user of our websites, products or Developer Portal, this section applies to you. We may provide users the functionality of posting information through our websites, products or Developer Portal. If and to the extent CA Bus. & Prof. § 22581 applies, you may request and obtain removal of content or information posted by you (as an account holder) subject to the exceptions provided in this “California Minors” section. If you can accomplish removal on your own by following the instructions within the websites, products or Developer Portal, then follow those instructions. If that does not work, contact us by using the contact information provided in the “How to Contact Us” section below by specifying the information or content and each place where it is located in enough detail so that we reasonably can find it and meet your request in the ordinary course of our business. CA Bus. & Prof. § 22581 provides exceptions to your ability to request and obtain removal of content or information posted by you within the websites, products or Developer Portal. Those exceptions in CA Bus. & Prof. § 22581 are: (1) federal or state laws requiring us or a third party to maintain the content or information; (2) the content or information is not covered by the law (e.g., someone other than you posted it or your posting is stored, republished, or reposted by a third party); (3) we turned your content or information into anonymized data (such as, aggregated data or the like) and thereby disabling the ability to identify your content and information among other users’ content or information; (4) you don’t follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (5) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the content or information. If any one of the above exceptions applies, we are not required to remove your content or information from the Aps. REMOVAL OF YOUR POSTED CONTENT OR INFORMATION FROM THE WEBSITES AND DEVELOPER PORTAL DO NOT ENSURE COMPLETE OR COMPREHENSIVE REMOVAL OF THAT CONTENT OR INFORMATION. The law does not require us to actually eliminate the information posted by you; the law is satisfied if we keep it but render it invisible to other users and the public. Also, some information will already be beyond our control (e.g., a user or other third party might have already copied it). Law enforcement may obtain the content or information pursuant to certain court orders.

Cookies and Do Not Track

We track usage information about the Vinli Services through the use of cookies and other tracking mechanisms. However, your selection of the “Do Not Track” option provided by your device browser may not have any effect on our collection of cookie information for the purposes described herein. The only way to completely “opt out” of the collection of any information through cookies or other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser or mobile device to delete and disable cookies and other tracking or recording tools. However, getting a “Do Not Track” signal to work fully can be very difficult. Using browsers as an example, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser or device might be recognizable even if you disable a tracking technology; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose, data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website usually will not be able to control what other websites do.

Our Opt-Out Policy

If you would like to terminate any of your Vinli Service accounts, you may request that we close your account(s) by contacting us by any means provided in the “How to Contact Us” section below. The use of any other mechanism to request that your membership be cancelled could result in the delay of your membership cancellation.

You may request that Vinli discontinue sending you emails without opting out of your Developer Portal by clicking on the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of any email communication from Vinli. Despite cancellation of your membership for any reason, closing your account, or opting out of emails from Vinli, all data previously provided by you via the Vinli Services will continue to be used by Vinli or third parties, in their sole discretion, consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy from time to time by posting an amended version of the statement to the Vinli website located at: www.vin.li/privacy. Please refer to this policy regularly. If we change how we use your personally identifiable information or update our email practices, we will notify you through the Vinli Services, via email or through any other method allowed by applicable law.
