COOKIES, WEB BEACONS AND LOG DATA .

WE USE A THIRD-PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR. We use a third-party credit card processor (“Payment Processor”) to process credit card transactions for purchases facilitated through the Bot. To make this possible, your name, email address, phone number, payment card information and amount of your purchase are shared via secure (encrypted) gateway with the Payment Processor for the sole purpose of completing any transactions you initiate through our Bot. Please note that your credit card information (number, expiration date, security code, billing address) is provided to the Payment Processor via secure (encrypted) gateway and is stored by the Payment Processor and not by us, and as such, it is important to review the Payment Processor’s privacy policy and terms of service to understand their information security practices. Velocity Growth retains the card type, expiration month and year, debit or credit and the last-four digits of your credit card information in order to facilitate payments through the Payment Processor. The Payment Processor’s privacy policy will apply to the information provided to the Payment Processor. Our current Payment Processor is Stripe (“Stripe”). Stripe’s privacy policy can be accessed here https://stripe.com/us/privacy and Stripe’s terms of service can be accessed here https://stripe.com/us/terms. You hereby acknowledge and agree that Velocity Growth is not affiliated in any way with the Payment Processor and that we have no responsibility or liability for the services provided by the Payment Processor or for the Payment Processor’s acts or omissions. By purchasing products and services using our Bot, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for the VG Services and any other purchased products and services in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider.

APPLICATION SECURITY.

The security of your Bot relies on your protection of your Slack Application and device and your passwords associated with each. You are solely responsible for any and all activities that occur on your device. We will never ask you to send your Slack Application password or other sensitive information to us in an e-mail. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your Slack Application password, please change it immediately. If you believe that an unauthorized access has already occurred or may occur please report it immediately to info@velocitygrowth.com You must promptly notify us if you become aware that any information provided by or submitted to the Site, Bot and/or Slack Application is lost, stolen or used without permission.

When your payment card information is being transmitted to our payment processor, it will be protected by encryption technology that utilizes Transport Layer Security (TSL) mechanisms for safely transmitting data. To be clear, we do not store your payment card information, and we do not have direct control over or responsibility for your payment card information. Our contracts with the Payment Processor that receives your payment card information require them to keep it secure.

We have implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to deter unauthorized access to and use, destruction of, modification of, or disclosure of other personally identifiable information we collect. Regardless of the precautions taken by us, by you, or by our third party service providers, no data transmitted over the internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you provide all personally identifiable information at your own risk.
