We use the term “Personal Data” to refer to any information that identifies or can be used to identify you. Common examples of Personal Data include: full name, email address, digital identity, such as a login name or handle, information about your device, and certain metadata.

We may collect information you provide us if you access, voluntary enter information into, or sign up for or request certain services from us on our Website. For example, if you are interested in learning more about Vacmobile and the services and products we offer, we may ask for information such as your name, alias, title, physical address, email address, telephone number, type of user (individual end user, or employer), and city/state. If you have an account with us, we may also collect your username or other login information you use to log into or access your account.
• Mobile Application
Certain information is required when creating an account to use our Services on the mobile application, such as your name, email address, user name and password.
In addition, we will ask that you upload a photo of your vaccination card. We may collect the following:
• Date of birth
• Covid-19 Vaccination type (e.g., Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson)
• Date when Covid-19 vaccination administered
• Healthcare professional or clinic site
You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to register for the Vacmobile Services or take advantage of some features of the Services.
When your device syncs with Vacmobile’s application, certain data recorded on your device is transferred from your device to our servers.
2. Information We Obtain from Your Use of Our Services
We also collect information about your interaction with the Services, such as creating or logging into your account, or opening or interacting with the Services on Your mobile device. When you use our Site, we automatically collect and store this information in service logs. This includes: details of how you used our Site; Internet protocol address; cookies that uniquely identify your browser, the referring web page and pages visited. We may also collect and process information about your actual location. The information we collect automatically is statistical data and may or may not include Personal Data, but we may maintain it or associate it with Personal Data we collect in other ways or receive from third parties.
3. Identity Verification

• Driver’s License,
• Non-Driver’s License ID Card,
• Military ID.

2. To authorize access to our Sites and Services;
3. To provide, maintain, administer or expand the Services, performing business analyses, or for other internal purposes to support, improve or enhance our business, the Services, and other products and services we offer;
4. To secure our Services, including to authenticate Users;

We do not share Personal Data with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Vacmobile unless one of the following circumstances applies:
• With your consent. We will share Personal Data with organizations or individuals outside of Vacmobile when we have your consent to do so.
• For Legal Reasons. We will share Personal Data with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Vacmobile if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
o meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
o enforce applicable Terms and Conditions, including investigation of potential violations.
o detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
o protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Vacmobile, our Users or the public as required or permitted by law.

• Business Transfers. If we establish a new related entity, are acquired by or merged with another organization, or if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another organization, Personal Data about our Users is often a transferred business asset.

Our Legal Basis for Collecting Personal Information
Whenever we collect Personal Information from you, we may do so on the following legal bases:
1. Your consent to such collection and use;
2. Out of necessity for the performance of an agreement between us and you, such as your agreement to use our Services or your request for Services;

• Intra-organization transfers for administrative purposes;
• Product development and enhancement, where the processing enables Vacmobile to enhance, modify, personalize, or otherwise improve our services and communications for the benefit of our Users, and to better understand how people interact with our Sites;
• Fraud detection and prevention;
• Enhancement of our cybersecurity, including improving the security of our network and information systems; and
• General business operations and diligence;
Provided that, in each circumstance, we will weigh the necessity of our processing for the purpose against your privacy and confidentiality interests, including taking into account your reasonable expectations, the impact of processing, and any safeguards which are or could be put in place. In all circumstances, we will limit such processing for our legitimate business interest to what is necessary for its purposes.

Your provision of Personal Data is required in order to use certain parts of our services and our programs. If you fail to provide such Personal Data, you may not be able to access and use our Services and/or our programs, or parts of our Services and/or our programs.

We currently provide the following opt-out opportunities:
1. At any time, you can follow a link provided in offers, newsletters or other email messages (except for e-commerce confirmation or service notice emails) received from us or a Vacmobile Partner to unsubscribe from the service.
Third Party Links
The Sites may contain links to webpages operated by parties other than Vacmobile. We do not control such websites and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy policies or other practices of such websites. Our inclusion of links to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators. Further, it is up to the User to take precautions to ensure that whatever links the User selects or software the User downloads (whether from this Site or other websites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. These websites and services may have their own privacy policies, which the User will be subject to upon linking to the third party’s website. Vacmobile strongly recommends that each User review the third party’s terms and policies.
How We Protect Personal Data
Vacmobile maintains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the User’s Personal Data and information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, taking into account technological reality, cost, the scope, context and purposes of processing weighted against the severity and likelihood that the processing could threaten individual rights and freedoms. For example, we restrict access to personal information to Vacmobile employees, contractors, business partners and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. We use commercially reasonable security measures such as encryption, firewalls, and Secure Socket Layer software (SSL) or hypertext transfer protocol secure (HTTPS) to protect Personal Data.
If Vacmobile collects account information for payment or credit, Vacmobile will use the information only to complete the task for which the account information was offered.
The Site is not intended for use by children. We do not intentionally gather Personal Data persons who are under the age of 13. If a child has provided us with Personal Data, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us to have the information deleted from our records. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under the age of 13 in the applicable jurisdictions, please contact us at email@example.com. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected the personal information of a child under the minimum age depending on jurisdiction, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
Direct Marketing and “Do Not Track” Signals
Vacmobile does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser may include controls to block and delete cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, to allow you to opt out of data collection through those technologies.
California residents are entitled to contact us to request information about whether we have disclosed personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Vacmobile does not disclose personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
