Deficiencies of Gravity-Based Dosing Systems

They do not excite the retailer or the consumer – Refill solutions are not new, and there are far more cost-effective ways of delivering concentrate (concentrate bottles, capsules or pouches), but in the end retailers and consumers must adopt solutions. To date, these other solutions have failed. Gravity based closures are failing too. They are inconvenient and complex -They require excessive amounts of time to evacuate, leave excessive tank residue, and do not mix without additional user interaction. They have severe viscosity limitations – higher viscosity concentrates will not work and limit the offerings that can be provided.

a. To deliver our Products and Services;

b. To provide customer service and our support services, or respond to any requests you make;

c. To process any financial transactions you make on our Site;

3. How Information May Be Shared

Vessl will never sell or rent any of your personal information, and we will never share your personal information publicly without your consent. However, from time to time, Vessl may engage other trusted third party companies and individuals to perform functions such as sending postal mail and e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), and providing customer service. Such companies shall only use your personal information for those purposes required to perform their functions and you consent to Vessl sharing your personal information with such companies so they can perform their functions. For example, we may store the information described in Section 1.1 above with a third-party data storage service to support delivery of our Products and Services, and to respond to customer service requests. Whenever we share data with third-party services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your personal information at least to the same standards we do.

We also reserve the right to disclose personal information when it is reasonably necessary to conduct our business, protect Vessl’s legal rights and property, and to comply with the law or law enforcement. Otherwise, your personal information is never shared with any third party.

4. Protection of your Personal Information

We take the security of your personal information seriously, and follow industry-standard practices to protect the data we collect and process. Vessl has therefore put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information that Vessl collects. Access to personal information will be restricted to our authorized personnel who require the information in order to perform their duties properly. In addition, access will be limited to only that information that is strictly necessary for the performance of those duties.

Remember, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. No method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is completely secure, so Vessl cannot guarantee its absolute security.

5. Data Transfers

Because Vessl is a US-based company, your information may be collected and processed in the United States. Additionally, as part of the products and services offered to you through our Site, the information which we collect about you may be transferred to, and stored in, one or more countries other than where you currently reside. For example, this may occur if any of our servers or third-party service providers are located in a country other than yours. These countries may have different data protection laws that are similar to your current residence. However, if we transfer your information in this way, we will put in place appropriate protection to make sure your personal data remains adequately protected and is treated in line with this Privacy Policy.

6. Basis for Processing - European Union Residents

Data protection law in Europe requires a “lawful basis” for collecting and retaining personal information from residents of the European Economic Area. Our lawful bases include:

  • Performing the contract we have with you: In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligation to deliver our Products and Services, and assist with any questions you may have.
  • Consent: we may ask your consent to process your personal information in some situations.
  • Legal compliance: Sometimes the law says we need to collect and use your data.
  • Legitimate interests: This is a term in data protection law that allows us to process your personal information if we have a fair reason to use your data, and only if we do so in ways which do not hurt your interests and rights. We sometimes require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in running our business, including for delivering our Products and Services, fraud prevention, quality assurance, and marketing purposes, as long as our use of your data does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. This allows us to improve and develop the quality of the online experience we offer all our users.

7. Email Notifications

We try to keep email communications to a minimum, and give you the ability to opt out of any marketing communications we send. For example, we may send you email relating to the Products or Services that we offer. You may also elect to receive certain marketing email communications, in accordance with your preferences, and from which you may opt out at any time. You can always opt out of receiving email information or mobile device notifications from Vessl (other than certain required communications informing you of the completion of a purchase, or correction of user data) by sending us an email at info@vesslinc.com stating your request. If we have sent you a promotional email or mobile device notification, you may send us a return email or mobile device communication asking to be omitted from future email or mobile device distributions or to request deletion of your information from our database. This opt out does not apply to information provided to Vessl as a result of a purchase of the Products or Services, product service experience, or other transactions.

8. Retention

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary to perform the relevant processing activity for that information, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us. This is a case by case determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected, why it is processed, and any relevant legal or operational retention needs. For example, we may retain your data so that we may process and deliver your orders. We may also be legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations. We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. When the relevant processing activity has been completed, we may destroy your data, or alternatively anonymize the data in such a way that you are not personally identifiable, either directly or indirectly.

9. Personal Information Requests - California and European Union Residents

Users or Site visitors residing in certain locations, including California and the European Union, may be afforded certain rights regarding their personal information. Except where an exception or exemption applies, these rights may include 1) the ability to request access to or a copy of the information we have collected about you; 2) the right to review our data collection practices related to you; 3) the ability to request deletion of your personal information; 4) the right to request correction of any information we hold about you; 5) the right not to be discriminated against due to your exercise of any of the preceding rights; and 6) the right to request portability of your data. In certain circumstances, you may also request restriction of, or objection to the processing we perform about you.
