Scope of this Policy
the Software are referred to in this policy as the service ("Service"). We refer to those who have downloaded and use the Software and Service as users ("Users").
Changes to this Policy
We expect to update this Policy frequently as we continue to offer you more Services, including services integrating the Software with software owned by third-party companies with whom we will choose to partner. We encourage you to review this Policy frequently, particularly each time you register for new Services. VETOLOGY AND VETOLOGY INNOVATIONS and its partners reserve the right to make changes to this Agreement at any time by providing such revised Agreement to Users or by publishing the revised Agreement on the VETOLOGY AND VETOLOGY INNOVATIONS and its partners Website. The revised Agreement will become effective within thirty (30) days of such publishing or provision to Users, unless Users expressly accept the revised Agreement earlier by clicking on the accept button, when applicable. The express acceptance by Users, or Users continued use of the VETOLOGY AND VETOLOGY
INNOVATIONS and its partners Software after expiration of the thirty (30) day notice period will constitute Users acceptance to be bound by the terms and conditions of the revised Agreement. Users can find the latest version of this Agreement at: https://platform.v2.vetology.net/doc/privacy-policy.
What information does the Software Collect?

The Software currently allows Users to access applications on their Internet connected computer, from an internet connected mobile phone and from other Internet connected devices. Users are required to log into the Software in order to access the Services.

What is your security policy?
The security of your information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we have received it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. When the Software uploads files to our servers, we will treat that information with the same security measures we afford the information we collect about you and about those you authorize to access your files.
Sharing access to your files may create additional risks to privacy and to the confidentiality of the information within your files. We provide certain safeguards from our end but some of the responsibility to prevent unauthorized access remains with you. If you authorize others to access your files, you are agreeing that you recognize those risks. Moreover, while most internet connected devices support SSL or other forms of secure data transmission, some mobile phones –particularly older mobile phones – do not. Users who access the Service via older mobile phones should take note of this. We strongly encourage all Users to check the operating instructions or similar documentation for their internet connected device PRIOR to using the Service.
