Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while VYVO strives to protect the user’s personal and business information, it cannot ensure the security of any information transmitted to VYVO, and you do so at your own risk.
Once VYVO receives your transmission, it makes best efforts to ensure its security in its systems. Please keep in mind that whenever you post personal and business information online, that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties.

Security How can You exercise your rights provided under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
Under the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to access, rectify, port and erase your data. You also have the right to object (view below) and restrict certain processing of your data. This includes:
a. The right to object to our processing of your data for direct marketing, which you can exercise by submitting your request to our customer services;
b. The right to object to our processing of your data where we are performing a task in the public interest or pursuing our legitimate interests or those of a third party.
The Right to Object
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), residents of the European Union have the legal right to object at any time to the processing of their personal data where the legal basis for that processing is:
a. The legitimate interests of VYVO or of a third party or;
b. Tasks carried out in the public interest. They can also object at any time to the processing of their personal data for direct marketing purposes, regardless of the legal basis relied upon.
How can I submit an objection?
You can submit an objection by submitting a ticket to our customer care from your Back-Office within the subject “I have a different objection to the use of my data”.
What happens when I object to VYVO’s processing of my data?
Our team will review your objection. Please make sure you have provided the information requested in the ticket to help us review your objection properly. We’ll then let you know whether your objection has been granted or not and provide you with the reasons for our decision. For example, we may deny an objection (other than to direct marketing) if it doesn’t pertain to processing pursuant to a legitimate interest (or public interest) as explained above.
What happens if my objection is successful?
If your objection is successful, we will cease processing your information pursuant to your objection. In addition, if your objection is successful, you have a right to request the erasure of your data under article 17(1)(c) of the GDPR. You can make such request at the same time as submitting an objection via the free text field of the objection form. We will consider several factors when assessing an objection including your reasonable expectations; the benefits and risks to you, us, other users, or third parties; and other available means to achieve the same purpose that may be less invasive and do not require disproportional effort.
Can my objection be denied?
Yes. There may be several reasons for this:
a. For processing other than direct marketing, we rely on another legal basis than our legitimate interests (or that of a third party) or tasks carried out in the public interests;
b. Your objection is not sufficiently grounded;
c. After carrying out a balancing test, we consider that our legitimate interests (or that of a third party) are not outweighed by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.
Data retention, account deactivation and deletion
We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services or until your account is deleted. This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational retention needs. When you delete your account, you won’t be able to recover that information later. If you don’t want to delete your account but want to temporarily stop using the products or services, you can deactivate your account instead. To delete your account at any time, please, submit a ticket from your back office.
