Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Viristar we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of our site.

It is Viristar’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

This Privacy Policy applies to the website available at www.viristar.com and the mobile applications and websites where this Privacy Policy is posted (collectively, the “Sites”). This Privacy Policy does not pertain to information that is collected offline. BY USING THE SITES, YOU CONSENT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND TO OUR PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES STATED BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SITES.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Viristar collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Viristar’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Viristar’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Viristar may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Viristar also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Viristar only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Viristar’s websites choose to interact with Viristar in ways that require Viristar to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Viristar gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Viristar updates via email, we collect their emails.  For those interested in further information, or a proposal for Viristar’s services, we may collect information visitors enter into our webform, such as name, email address, phone number, subject of contact, and the body of the message the visitor provides.  In each case, Viristar collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Viristar. Viristar does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Viristar may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Viristar may monitor the most popular pages on the Viristar site or use spam screened by the Akismet or another service to help identify spam. Viristar may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Viristar does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Viristar discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Viristar’s behalf or to provide services available at Viristar’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Viristar’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Viristar will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Viristar discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Viristar believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Viristar, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Viristar website and have supplied your email address, Viristar may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Viristar and our products. We may primarily use blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Viristar takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Viristar uses cookies to help Viristar identify and track visitors, their usage of Viristar website, and their website access preferences. Viristar visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Viristar’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Viristar’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

We may also use a tool called Google Analytics to see how visitors are using Viristar’s websites. Google Analytics uses persistent cookies for the collection of web metrics, and to track visitor interactions; however, traffic statistics for this website are only reported to us anonymously and in the aggregate.

External links and social media

This website may include links to other websites. When you click a link to an outside website, the privacy and security policies of that website apply. Non-Viristar websites do not necessarily operate under the policies as our websites.

Regardless of content that we link to from Viristar’s website or our social media accounts, we do not formally endorse any commercial product, service, process, or enterprise. We link to other websites and refer to commercial products or enterprises solely for your convenience and education. We cannot assume any responsibility for the content or operation of other websites.

Business Transfers

If Viristar, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Viristar goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Viristar may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Viristar and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Website Security

No data transmissions over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you understand that any information that you transfer to Viristar is done at your own risk. However, Viristar uses website security measures consistent with current best practices to protect its website, email and mailing lists. These measures include technical, procedural, monitoring and tracking steps intended to safeguard data from misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction.

Credit card information is transmitted using secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. Member and purchaser information is a high priority and we use our own protective measures, as well as the capabilities of our software and hardware vendors.

We realize there can be incidents of misuse or unauthorized program incursions, as almost every website, service and user encounters. In those instances, our goals are to move quickly to isolate the problem, ensure or restore proper functionality and minimize any inconvenience to our users. As appropriate and necessary, Viristar will notify the relevant authorities of these incidents of misuse or unauthorized program incursions of the Viristar website.


This site is protected by reCAPTCHA and the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply.


Comments and other content submitted to anti-spam services are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
