We may ask you for, or you may voluntarily submit, personally identifiable information when you are using the Service. The personally identifiable information which you may provide to us could include, but is not limited to:

• Billing information including name, address, and credit card information so that we can process payments to deliver our products or services to you under our contractual obligation;

Please note that the information above (“Personal Data”) that you are giving to us is voluntarily, and by you providing this information to us you are giving consent for us to use, collect, and process this Personal Data. You are welcome to opt-out or request for us to delete your Personal Data at any point by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you choose not to provide us with certain Personal Data, you may not be able to participate in certain aspects of our Website or content.
Non-Personal Or Aggregate Information That We Collect
When you access our Service, we may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from you, such as IP host address, web pages viewed, browser type, operating system, referring service, search information, device type, page views, usage and browsing habits on the Service and similar data. We may also aggregate demographic information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular geographical location) in a manner which does not identify any one individual.
To maintain our Website’s high quality, we may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer the Website by identifying which area of the Website are most heavily used, and to display content according to your preferences. Your IP address is the number assigned to computers connected to the Internet. This is essentially “traffic data,” which cannot personally identify you, but is helpful to us for marketing purposes and for improving our services. Anonymous traffic data may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on a aggregate basis.
We may also aggregate information collected offline in connection with the Service, obtain non-personally identifiable information from third party sources and develop aggregate information by anonymizing previously collected personally identifiable information.
It is possible at times when collecting non-personally identifiable information through automatic means that we may unintentionally collect or receive personally identifiable information that is mixed in with the non-personally identifiable information. While we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists. If you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal information, please notify us at email@example.com.
We will only use your personally identifiable information as described below, unless you have specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personally identifiable information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you:
• We may share your personally identifiable information collected in connection with providing the Service;
• We may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your inquiries or requests;
• We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties (collectively, the “Third Party Vendors”) to further the purpose for which you provided such information to us. We may share your information with Aweber Email, for the purpose of sending emails, merchant accounts to process payments with Stripe, for the purpose of processing payments, and Google or social media accounts in order to run advertisements;
We urge you to read the privacy practices of all of our Third Party Vendors before submitting any personally identifiable information through the Service.
• We may disclose personally identifiable information as required by law or legal process;
• We may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or the terms or policies for our services or our sponsors;
• We may transfer your personally identifiable information in connection with the sale or merger or change of control of www.thevendingmentors.com or the division responsible for the services with which your personally identifiable information is associated; and
• We may share your personally identifiable information with an affiliate of www.thevendingmentors.com who is in the same corporate family as us as long as their privacy practices are substantially similar to ours.
Non-personally identifiable or aggregate information may be used by us for any purposes permitted by law and may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify you.
We will use the Personal Data you give us in order to process your payments for the purchase of goods or services under a contract. We only use third party payment processors that take the utmost care in securing data and comply with the GDPR.

We may use the data you provide to us to run social media advertisements and / or create look-alike audiences for advertisements.

We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to create reports. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, which does not identify any individual.
Like many services, the Analytics Service uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We then use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our site.
