Information We Collect
When you register and use Viewpost Services, we collect certain information that you provide to us during registration and throughout your use of the Viewpost Services related to your business and its practices. Examples include your company name, business representative’s name, business phone number, business address, business email address, financial information and transactional information associated with the company and taxpayer identification number utilized by the business. This information is described as “business information.” We use the term “personal information” to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify a specific person. This would include name, address, bank account number, Geo-location and Social Security number, if such data is necessary. Collectively business and personal information is referred to as “Information.” We may also collect and use Information provided by others about you or your business to provide the Viewpost Services and verify you or your business. Your Information does not include data that has been anonymized or de-identified so that it does not identify a specific person or data pertaining to a business entity or your capacity as a representative of a business entity.
We may use your name and email address to send you business promotional emails or any updates regarding our products. Out of respect for your privacy, you may choose to stop receiving these marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails, or you can contact Customer Support at 1-888-248-9190 or email@example.com.
We will also send invoices on behalf of our customers to your registered email address or the email address provided by your service provider. If you wish to stop receiving invoices in this manner, please contact the sender of these invoices as we have no mechanism to opt you out of those communications.

Sharing Your Information for Other Purposes
Accessing, Updating, and Correcting Your Information
Upon request Viewpost will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your Information. The Viewpost Site enables you to update and correct your Information and delete inaccuracies. You can review and edit specific types of Information at any time by logging in to the Viewpost Site and making changes on its Settings page. We will retain your Information for as long as your account is active or in accordance with our data retention practices. Please note that we are not obligated to retain any Information except as required by law. If we are required to maintain a record of any Information, you may not be able to delete such Information due to such requirements. Please be aware that your Information stored on backup tapes and locations, third-party servers, and other repositories may not be erasable and residual Information may be retained. Viewpost will delete inaccurate Information upon notice from the customer when it does not conflict with applicable laws, rules, regulations, or other legal obligations. We will respond to your request within a reasonable time frame.
In addition, Viewpost receives Information directly from its customers, and may have no direct relationship with the individuals to whom that Information relates. That Information is separate from the Information collected through the Viewpost Site. An individual who is not a Viewpost registered user who seeks to access, correct, amend, or delete data provided to us by our customer should direct those requests to the customer as they will have access to that Information through their own account. Viewpost acknowledges your right to access and amend your Information, however, that Information is part of another parties account and will need to be corrected by them. If requested to remove data we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
