Cookies and Similar Technologies Policy

Last Updated: December 16, 2018

This Cookies & Similar Technologies Policy (“Cookie Policy”) describes the different types of cookies and similar technologies that are used on the websites of VAASARA, FZ LLE. and its affiliates (“VAASARA”). Please also consult our Privacy Policy to understand how we handle personal and other information in general.

  • 1. What are Cookies and Similar Technologies?

    Cookies are a standard feature of websites that allow us to store small amounts of data on your computer or other device about your visit to our websites. Cookies help us learn which areas of our websites are useful and which areas need improvement.

    Some cookies may facilitate additional website features for enhanced performance and functionality such as remembering preferences, allowing social interactions, analysing usage for website optimization, providing custom or localized content and pricing, allowing third parties to provide social sharing tools, and serving images or videos from third party websites. Some features on this site will not function if you do not allow cookies. We may link the information we store in cookies to Personal or Other Information you submit while on our websites.

    We also use technologies similar to cookies, such as web beacons or Flash Local Shared Objects, as described below.

  • 2. What Cookies and Similar Technologies Do We Use?

    Cookies

    We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interest of our users to enhance the experience on our websites. We use various types of cookies:

    Essential cookies, persistent and session type, store information to enable core website functionality, such as Live Chat and Client ID remembrance.

    Functional cookies are cookies that are used to track your preferences, such as your preferred language or display settings, and customize the website to you. Some of these cookies may be essential cookies.

    Analytics cookies allow us to count page visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our websites and our marketing campaigns.

    Advertising cookies may be set through our website by our advertising partners. Data may be collected by these companies that enable them to serve up advertisements on other websites that are relevant to your interests.

    Web Beacons/pixel tags

    Web beacons, also known as pixel tags, are tiny graphic objects that are embedded in a web page or email and are usually invisible to the user but allow checking that a user has viewed the page or email. We (or third party data or ad networks we work with) may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about our services, or other information we or they have collected. Web beacons may be used within our services to track email open rates, web page visits or form submissions. In some cases, we tie the information gathered by web beacons to our subscribers’ and end users’ personal information. For example, we use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. Web Beacons are also deployed by third parties, in connection with cookies, to serve interest-based (and other) advertising, as described in the below section titled “Advertising Networks”.

    Flash LSOs

    We use Flash Local Shared Objects (“Flash LSOs”) and other technologies to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our websites. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our website or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity also use Flash LSOs to collect and store information. If you do not want Flash LSOs stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also go to the Global Storage Settings Panel and follow the instructions (which explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash LSOs, how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your consent, and how to block Flash LSOs that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time). Please note that setting the Flash player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications.

    Physical Location

    We collect the physical location of your device by, for example, using satellite, cell phone tower, or WiFi signals. We use your device’s physical location to provide you with location-based services and content. You may disable our use of certain location data through your device or browser settings, for example by disabling “Location Services” for the VAASARA App in iOS privacy settings.

    Analytics Software

    We and our third party tracking-utility partners use log files on our services to gather certain information automatically and store it for analytical purposes. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use third party partners such as Google Analytics, which uses cookies and other, similar technologies to collect and analyze information about use of our services and report on activities and trends. This service may also collect information regarding the use of other websites, apps and online resources. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, and opt out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Please see Section 22 of the Privacy Policy for a list of additional third party tracking partners integrated within the VAASARA Services.

    We also use this information to track and aggregate other information to analyze trends, administer our websites, track users’ movements around our services and to gather demographic information about our user base in the aggregate.

    Advertising Networks

    We partner with third party data or ad network(s) and other service providers to show you relevant ads (whether for our products or those of other companies), including ads displayed on our services and on other companies’ websites or apps, on any of your devices.

    We and our service providers may use cookies and web beacons to deploy and read cookie identifiers and Mobile Ad IDs, associated with your activities on our services, third party websites, mobile apps or other information we collect, to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. They may also use these technologies, along with activity information they collect, to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile device and a laptop or other computer. These ad networks and their customers may also use any of this information to measure ad performance, understand their (or our) audience, or otherwise improve and enhance their marketing.

    Similarly, we or a third party data partner may associate cookies with hashed (non-human readable) versions of your registration data (e.g., your email address), along with other interest-based or demographic data. You can learn more about or opt out of this type of advertising through the links in the following paragraph.

    Mobile Opt Out

    You can opt out of having your Mobile Ad IDs used for interest-based mobile advertising by accessing the settings on your Apple or Android mobile device, as follows:

    Apple Devices: If you have an Apple device, you can opt out of most cross-app advertising by toggling Limit Ad Tracking to ‘ON’. This can currently be found under Settings > Privacy > Advertising.

    Android Devices: If you have an Android device, you can opt out of most cross-app advertising by clicking on Google Settings > Ads, and selecting the option to opt-out of interest-based ads.

    Please note that these platforms control how these settings work, so the above instructions may change. Likewise, if your device uses other platforms not described above, please check the settings for those devices.

    Web-Based Opt Out

    If you wish to opt-out of many of the ad platforms that serve or support interest-based advertising (or learn more about this type of advertising), go to http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, http://www.aboutads.info/choices and http://preferences-mgr.truste.com/ to opt out in desktop and mobile web browsers.

Please note that any opt-out from interest-based advertising will not result in the cessation of all advertising, as we, or our third party advertisers, may continue to serve you contextual-based advertising. Please also note that the above opt-out mechanisms are cookie-based, so if you change or modify your browser, or clear your cookies, you will need to opt out again.

  • 3. How Do I Manage Similar Technologies?

    In addition to the options provided above, you can refuse or accept cookies from our websites at any time by activating the settings on your browser. Information about the procedure to follow in order to enable or disable cookies can be found on your Internet browser provider’s website via your help screen.

If You use the optional Integrated Merchant Account service to process payments, VAASARA is responsible for protecting Cardholder Data only after such Cardholder Data is encrypted and received by VAASARA’s server(s). You remain responsible for the proper handling and protection of Cardholder Data until such Cardholder Data is encrypted and received by VAASARA’s server(s).

  • 21. Records and Audit Rights

    VAASARA shall have the right to audit your compliance with payments, copyright, Confidential Information, and any other restrictions and/or obligations in this Agreement.

  • 22 General Terms

    1) Relationship of the Parties. For all purposes of this Agreement, you and VAASARA shall be and act independently and not as partners, joint ventures, agents, employees or employers of the other. You shall not have any authority to assume or create any obligation for or on behalf of VAASARA, express or implied, and you shall not attempt to bind VAASARA to any contract.

    2) Non-Solicitation. You agree to not solicit for hire any employee of VAASARA with whom you have, at any time, interacted with for the purposes of doing business with VAASARA for the duration of the Agreement or within twelve (12) months after the termination of the Agreement and will not solicit for hire a director or officer of VAASARA who was or is employed by VAASARA while this agreement is in place for the duration of the agreement or within twelve (12) months after the termination of the agreement. Nothing in this provision shall be construed to prevent any individual from being hired by you. If you breach this obligation to not solicit VAASARA employees as provided in this Agreement and the solicited employee is hired by you, you shall pay VAASARA an amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of the solicited employee’s new salary as liquidated damages. The parties agree that quantifying losses arising from your solicitation is inherently difficult insofar as the solicitation may impact VAASARA’s ability to retain personnel and resulting need to recruit, hire and train replacement talent and further stipulate that the agreed upon sum is not a penalty, but rather a reasonable measure of damages, based upon the parties’ experience and given the nature of losses that may result from your solicitation.

    3) Severability. If any court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this Agreement unenforceable, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remainder of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect.

    4) Governing Law; Dispute. This Agreement will be governed by the laws of U.A.E., without giving effect to any principles that would provide for the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to this Agreement. You and VAASARA agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the emirate Dubai. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that VAASARA may, at any time, apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any applicable jurisdiction. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action you may have arising out of or related to use of the API or the Service or otherwise under this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or you hereby agree to be forever barred from bringing such claim.

    5) No Waiver of Rights by VAASARA. VAASARA’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

    6) Construction. The headings of sections of this Agreement are for convenience only and are not to be used in interpreting this Agreement. As used in this Agreement, the word “including” means “including but not limited to.”

    7) Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties regarding the subject hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, understandings, and communication, whether written or oral, relating to such subject matter.

VAASARA Branding Guidelines*

In order for us to connect the world of wellness, we need people to know exactly who we are at VAASARA, so it's vital that we present a clear and consistent brand. That's why we created these VAASARA Branding Guidelines ("Guidelines"). When our brand is clear to consumers, we can build the relationships that make us more and more useful to you as a partner.

All written and designed aspects of the VAASARA, FZ LLE. ("VAASARA") brand are VAASARA intellectual property and are valuable assets of the corporation. VAASARA permits the use of its brand, name, trademarks, service marks, company marks, product marks, web pages, screenshots, logos, and other brand features (which we will refer to as "marks and logos" moving forward) only as specified in these Guidelines. Any use that falls outside of these Guidelines, and that is not based on separate written and signed permission, is strictly prohibited.

  • 1. Who are these Guidelines for?

    These Guidelines apply to VAASARA employees, customers, licensees, developers, partners, consultants, outside vendors, the media, and other third parties ("you"). By using VAASARA marks and logos, you agree to adhere to these Guidelines and specifically to the use requirements and terms below. If you have a separate written and signed agreement with VAASARA that addresses the use of the VAASARA brand, that agreement shall govern your use of VAASARA marks and logos.

  • 2. VAASARA marks and logos

    You may refer to VAASARA products and services by their associated marks and logos so long as such references are truthful, fair, not misleading, and comply with these Guidelines, which may be modified by VAASARA from time to time in the sole discretion of VAASARA.

    When referring to VAASARA products and services,

    VAASARA marks and logos must be used as provided by VAASARA with no modifications.

    Do not incorporate VAASARA marks or logos into your own product names, service names, trademarks, logos, company names, domain names, website title, publication title, application icon, favicon, or the like.

    Do not adopt marks or logos that are confusingly similar to VAASARA marks and logos.

    Do not display VAASARA marks and logos in any manner that can be reasonably interpreted to suggest that any content has been authorized by—or represents the views or opinions of—VAASARA or VAASARA personnel.

    Use the appropriate trademark symbol and trademark acknowledgment that VAASARA owns the marks and/or logos in question. If you are creating ads, white papers, sales materials, or general collateral using the VAASARA logo, following the terms set in these Guidelines or with written permission from VAASARA, we ask that you put one of the following taglines at the bottom of the page, at the bottom of the ad, or at the bottom of the design whenever you feature the VAASARA logo:

    © 2018 VAASARA, FZ LLE. All rights reserved. VAASARA and the VAASARA logo are registered trademarks of VAASARA, FZ LLE.

    © 2018 VAASARA, FZ LLE. All rights reserved. [Insert Trademark] is a trademark of VAASARA, FZ LLE.

    Logo display: The VAASARA logo must stand alone. To preserve the integrity and clarity of the VAASARA logo, you must ensure the presence of a certain amount of "clear space" between the VAASARA logo and other graphic or textual elements.

    Logo and background color: The VAASARA logo should always be used in color for online use. The VAASARA logo should also be used in color for print applications unless the color version is not practical, in which case the logo can be reproduced in solid black. The preferred background color for the logo is solid white. When a solid white color is not practical, the logo may be used on a solid, light background color. The high-resolution logo must be used for all print applications.

    Logo updates: From time to time, VAASARA may update logos. Please check here for the most up-to-date logos. You may not create any new publications using the old logos, and VAASARA expects partners to update existing publications to the current logos within 90 days of the publication of new logos. Moreover, VAASARA reserves the right to request that VAASARA logos be updated and to disallow the use of old VAASARA logos.

    If you are a member of the media and have any specific logo requirements, please contact us at support@VAASARA.com.

    Logo size: VAASARA logos can be found in these Guidelines in different formats and resolutions.

    If you would like to use VAASARA logos digitally, use the PNG logos. To ensure the logo resolution and quality are not compromised, the PNG logos may not be enlarged beyond their native/maximum size. The PNG logo must be presented at a width of at least 100 pixels, as shown below. The PNG logo must be presented at a width of at least 80 pixels.

    If you need to enlarge VAASARA logos, for instance in print or for publication, use the SVG logos. These can be enlarged beyond their native size. In print, the SVG logo must be presented at a width of at least 1.25 inches, as shown below. In print, the SVG logo must be presented at a width of at least 1 inch.

    Termination: VAASARA may ask you to stop using the marks at any time. You must agree to stop using the marks and logos within a reasonable period of the time from when VAASARA makes the request. You may not, in any situation, continue to use the marks and logos for more than seven (7) calendar days after VAASARA makes the request.

    Reservation of rights: VAASARA is the owner of all rights in the marks and logos and reserves all rights save the limited license granted here. Your use of the marks and logos pursuant to this license shall not be construed as limiting any of the VAASARA rights in the marks and logos.

    In an area of a website, advertising, or marketing collateral exclusively dedicated to the sale of VAASARA products, and in such a manner that associates licensed VAASARA software with the VAASARA logo.

    Logos for use by third-party developers

    As a third-party developer of VAASARA, you may download logos for use on your website and in connection with your application if it offers access to VAASARA APIs. Using VAASARA APIs does not, however, establish a partnership. Please do not imply a partnership with VAASARA unless there is a formal, written, current, and signed partnership agreement.

    The "Powered by VAASARA" logo, must be displayed on every page, screen, or interface where VAASARA API data has a presence, and it must be displayed adjacent to where the implementation appears in your UI. The API logo or text must be an active link to www.VAASARA.com.

    If you would like to use the "Powered by VAASARA" logo digitally, use the PNG version. To ensure the logo resolution and quality are not compromised, the PNG logo may not be enlarged beyond its native/maximum size. This PNG logo must be presented at a width of at least 100 pixels.

    Logos for use by partners

    If you have a current agreement with VAASARA other than a license to use VAASARA APIs, you may download the VAASARA "partner badge" for use in accordance with the terms of your agreement with VAASARA and these Guidelines.

    The VAASARA partner badge must stand alone. To preserve the integrity and clarity of the VAASARA partner badge, you must ensure the presence of a certain amount of "clear space" between the partner badge and other graphic or textual elements. That "clear space" must be—at minimum—half the height of the badge.

    To download the partner badge, please contact us at support@VAASARA.com.

    Logos for use by the media

    Logos may be downloaded for use in reporting on VAASARA business. These logos may not be altered, combined with other marks and logos, or used in a misleading manner. If you are a member of the media and have any specific requirements, please contact us at support@VAASARA.com.

    We remind media entities to kindly note that the proper and legal spelling of our company name is "VAASARA" (in ALL CAPS).
