Privacy policy

Our customers’ privacy is a high priority for us. So we’ve developed a privacy policy that covers the basics of how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Please take a moment to take a look at our privacy practices and let us know if you have any questions.

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for our services.* This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by this web site. It will notify you of the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the web site, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  4. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
  5. External services we use and data we share with them and links to their respective privacy policies.

We are the sole owners of the information collected by us. We only have access to/collect information from our services. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization except when it’s necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.

We’ll use information given to us to analyze users’ behaviour so we may improve our services but we’ll not ask or require additional information just to better categorize this data.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

Connecting External Apps with Valotalive (integrations)

Valotalive is designed to work seamlessly with your existing applications, but we take data privacy seriously. We’re not in the business of collecting or analyzing your data. We only request the minimum amount of information needed to make the connection work and display content on your digital signage screens.

What Data is Accessed

The specific data Valotalive retrieves depends on two things:

  • Third-Party App’s API: This is the set of instructions that tells Valotalive how to interact with the other application.
  • Scopes: These define the specific data points Valotalive can access within the app. You’ll be clearly informed about the requested scopes before authorizing the connection.

Transparency and Control

  • Authorization and Revocation: You have complete control. Valotalive requires your explicit authorization to connect with any third-party app. You can also revoke this permission at any time if you no longer need the integration.
  • Official APIs: Whenever possible, Valotalive uses the official and secure APIs provided by third-party apps.
  • Data Minimization: We only process the essential parts of the received data for displaying content. Any unnecessary information is discarded.

Data Used for Display Only

Valotalive uses data from connected apps solely to populate your digital signage screens. The specific content displayed depends on the source app.

For example, when connecting to Slack, Valotalive might show:

  • The source channel name
  • Who posted the message (including avatar)
  • The timestamp
  • Message title and body
  • Any attached images or videos

Data Retention

Valotalive only stores relevant and current data. This data is deleted when:

  • You revoke access permissions to the connected app.
  • You delete the app from Valotalive.
  • You delete your Valotalive user account.

Outdated data is automatically deleted to ensure information accuracy on your digital signage screens.

Overall, Valotalive prioritizes data privacy and transparency. We only collect and use the minimum data necessary to deliver a seamless experience for managing your digital signage content.

Your access to and control over information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via contact form, email address or phone number given on our website:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon on your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
