At Vivaldi Technologies AS (“Vivaldi”), protecting your privacy is one of our top priorities. We strictly protect the security of your personal information within Vivaldi’s websites. We do not share or sell your data with any third parties and protect user data from disclosure, with exceptions only requested by law or court order.
Types of data we collect and its purpose
Vivaldi may collect visitor statistics using Piwik analytics software. The visitor statistics may include information about the visitor’s IP-addresses, usage patterns, the point in time the visitor visits our websites on vivaldi.net and vivaldi.com and information about the browser and operating system the visitor uses. This information is used solely for statistical purpose. It cannot be used to identify individuals as the data is anonymized. We use these statistics to improve and optimize usability of our products and services for our users. These statistics help us determine where we need to improve and prioritize our resources accordingly.
Vivaldi has strict restrictions on access to user data. Only a limited number of Vivaldi’s employees have access.
Vivaldi will not transfer any personal data to third parties except as required by law or law enforcement.
Vivaldi’s web servers are hosted at the Advania data centers in Iceland.
Vivaldi’s websites use a modified version of the Akismet plugin to mitigate spam. The plugin has been modified so as not to send any personal information to the service (only the username and content of posts are provided to Akismet).
Retention and deletion
Vivaldi will delete personal information when all purposes of the personal information processing have been fulfilled, and when deletion is allowed pursuant to applicable laws and regulations.
Procedures are reviewed regularly to ensure that the policies are followed. Any non-conformance regarding the policies will be corrected without unnecessary delay.
Updates and changes
This Privacy Statement may be updated or changed. When we post changes to this Privacy Statement, we will include the date when the Privacy Statement was last updated. If there are material changes to this statement or in how we will use your personal information, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change or by directly sending you a notification.
