Effective Date: June 15, 2021
VTM recognizes that when you choose to provide us with personal information about yourself, you trust us to treat it responsibly.
We host the application to allow for individual dental practices to have a private training manual and also have the ability to share and view designated videos to all VTM users.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals who are under the minimum required ages specified herein. You must be at least 18 years old or the age of majority in your jurisdiction, whichever is greater, to use our services.
We collect information about you when you use our services. In addition, third parties may collect information about you when you use our services. Collected information may include or reflect personal information that could identify you, as well as non-personal information. We refer to your information as "your data" for short.
To create an account, you must provide a valid email address and password. If you choose to sign-up and/or authenticate using a third-party account (e.g., Facebook, Google), you authorize us to obtain account information from the third-party platform.
To make a purchase, you may need to provide a valid payment method (e.g., credit card or PayPal account). Your payment information will be collected and processed by our authorized payment vendors. We do not directly collect or store credit or debit card numbers ourselves in the ordinary course of processing transactions. If we allow purchase through a third-party platform (i.e. in-app purchase), the payment method stored with the third-party platform will be charged.
If you wish to sell items or earn money from advertising through our services, you must provide an account to receive funds and tax information, which may include your name, address, and taxpayer identification number.
Accountholders may create an account and upload and create content such as videos, text, photographs, and artwork. Your profile may display information about you and your activities. This information may be accessed by others in your group, or if personally elected to share the content, then can be accessed by anyone within the VTM network. Those videos may be viewed and otherwise accessed by others, and associated metadata (e.g., titles, descriptions, tags, etc.) are viewable by others. Your interactions with other users (e.g., comments, "likes," private messages) may be seen by others. You may choose to limit the availability of your profile and videos.
Some third parties may collect data about you when you use our services. This may include data you submit (such as payment information) or automatically-collected information (in the case of third-party analytics providers and advertising partners).
We may obtain data from third parties about you. We may combine that data with information that we have collected. For example, some advertisers or advertising platforms may allow us to determine what other online services you might use so that we may place relevant ads on those services.
We may use your data for the following purposes:
We may use algorithms and other automated means to implement any of the above.
Whenever we process your data for one of these purposes, we have determined that one or more of the following lawful bases apply:
We share data with third parties as follows:
We use reasonable efforts to vet vendors for their privacy and data security practices. We require that such vendors agree to protect the data we share.
Where the services are provided to you through your employer or another organization that administers access, that organization may be able to:
If you sign up for a VTM account using an email address belonging to an organization (i.e. your employer), we may disclose information about your account (such as the primary email address and the account type) to the corresponding organization. Please contact your organization’s administrator for further details.
We have built in proper filters, where the content will be approved by an administrator of each group, and if the content is shared, it will be approved by the superadmin. However the content is interpreted and modeled, VTM is not accountable or responsible for any adverse outcomes.
We may disclose your data in response to official requests (e.g., court orders, subpoenas, search warrants, national security requests, etc.) ("requests") that we receive from government authorities or parties to legal proceedings.
We retain your data for as long as you have an account. When you close an account, we will keep the videos that have been approved by your administrator.
Once we delete a video, we may not be able to recover it. If you have previously made a video public, the video or its thumbnail may be discoverable in a search engine's cache for a time.
If we receive legal process pertaining to your account, we will retain your data for as long as we in good faith believe is necessary to comply with the legal process. Similarly, if we believe that your account has been involved in wrongdoing, we may preserve your data to defend or assert our rights.
We enable you to make numerous choices about your data:
As part of our services we offer you the ability to limit the distribution of your content, including your videos. This section explains some of your choices.
We enable you to manage the privacy settings of your videos.
If you create an account, you may receive commercial emails from us. This includes newsletters and offers.
We may, with your consent, send push notifications in our apps. You may disable these by declining them or changing the app's settings.
We use physical, technical, and organizational security measures to safeguard your data from unauthorized or accidental disclosure. Despite these efforts, no information system can be 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information. Users also have a role to play in keeping their data safe. We encourage you to use a unique and hard-to-guess password for your account and to not share it with others. You should only grant access rights to people who you know and trust, and, even then, you should be careful in granting all access rights. You should monitor your account regularly. If you believe that someone has gained access to your account without your permission, please contact us immediately so that we can investigate.
You may receive other people's data in using our service. If you receive information from other users, you must comply with all laws, including those concerning privacy, data security, and online marketing.
