Who we are

The website address is https://vissiniti.com.

Information we collect

The information we, or our website, collects falls into two types:

Information that does not identify you (for example, how visitors use our website).

Information that relates directly to you (for example, your name and email address, if you contact us directly).

Information about our visitors is collected in order to understand how to improve our website and its content, and is provided to us as anonymous aggregated data from third-party service providers. It may be collected directly from you if you contact us by email or leave a comment on our website.

Third party Services

Our website is hosted by WordPress.com, a subsidiary of Automattic, and contains links that can track information. The links are provided by Automattic’s companies (WordPress.com, JetPack.com) and Google Analytics. Other than utilising their services, we are not associated with any of these third-party service providers. They have their own privacy policies and rules about information collection, use and sharing, which you should review on their respective websites:

Automattic (including WordPress.com and JetPack.com)
Google Analytics

Information you provide to us

If you contact us directly via email, we will retain this information in order to clarify or respond to your reason for contacting us. We will not share your information with anyone else.

If your email is about scientific research or a potential collaboration between us, we will retain your contact details for future communications between us. In these circumstances, we will specifically request your approval for us to retain your details. We will not share your information with anyone else without your prior approval.

Should we provide a contact form on our website or manage a mailing list and should you sign up, you may be providing personally identifiable information to us, but we will not share your information with anyone else.

Should we allow posting of comments on our website and should you post a comment, it will be visible to all who visit our website along with your username (if enabled) — information that you choose to make public is disclosed publicly.

Information Collected Automatically

The data we collect automatically about visitors to our website is in the form of anonymous aggregated information and statistics compiled by third-party services, and is collected in various ways as described below.

Cookies and other tracking technologies

Our website uses cookies and other tracking technologies. Some of these technologies are necessary for the website to work and some are used for performance and analytics. Cookies are small files that a website or its third-party service provider(s) transfers to your computer through your web browser in order to recognise your web browser, capture and track certain information. You may choose to set your web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. You do this through the privacy and security settings in your particular browser (each browser is different, therefore you should look at your own browser’s Help menu to learn how to modify your cookies or take a look at websites such as AboutCookies.org or AllAboutCookies.org to find out more).

By continuing to use our website without changing settings, you are agreeing to our use of these cookies.

Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics and WordPress.com Stats on JetPack to gather information that helps us understand how visitors interact with our website. We see this only as anonymous aggregated statistics such as visitor numbers, popularity of individual posts, and where in the world our visitors are based. Google Analytics also provides anonymous aggregated information about the means by which visitors connect to our website (such as browser type, device, operating system, internet service provider). We use this in order to understand the usage of our website and to improve the content — we want you to enjoy what you read on our website. These third parties utilise tracking technologies to provide these analytics features. They have their own privacy policies and rules about information collection, use and sharing, which you can review on their respective websites.

THIRD-PARTY websites

Our website contains links to third-party websites for your convenience and information (such as Amazon, IMDb, Netflix, YouTube, scientific journals, newspaper articles, and many others too numerous to mention here). Please be aware that these websites may have different security and privacy policies. We have no control over and take no responsibility for information submitted to these websites. When you leave our website, we suggest you read the terms and privacy policy of each third-party website.

AFFILIATE MARKETING

Some links on our website may be linking to products on Amazon. We chose these products because they are relevant to the subject focus of our website (products such as a sci-fi movie, a text book or a trial of Prime Video). The links may utilise tracking technologies to collect information about your use of Amazon’s website if you click on the link. The tracker remembers our affiliate ID as the referrer so that if, during your journey, you purchase something or take a trial of Prime Video, as an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. Amazon does not share any purchaser information with us. Amazon has its own privacy policy and rules about information collection, use and sharing, which you should review on its website (Amazon UK).

Embedded content from other websites

Some pages and posts on our website may include embedded content from other websites (for example, our Twitter feed, and any videos that play directly on our site). Unlike links which send you to another website, embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you visited the other website. Those websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account with that website and are logged in. Those third parties have their own privacy policies and rules about information collection, use and sharing, which you should review on their respective websites.

Security

Antivirus and malware scanning is undertaken regularly by WordPress.com (or its associated companies at Automattic) for security and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our website as safe as possible. Information on these security measures can be found on their website.

Sharing information

We do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise transfer to others any information regarding our visitors.

The third parties who provide us with the services described in our Privacy Policy have their own privacy policies and rules about information collection, use and sharing, which you can review on their respective websites.

Agreement to our Privacy Policy

By continuing to use our website, you signify your agreement to our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to our Privacy Policy, we request that you do not use our website.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. When we make changes we will update the date at the bottom of this page. We encourage you to review this page frequently to stay up to date with our current Privacy Policy — your continued use of our website following our posting of changes to our Privacy Policy will be deemed as your acceptance of those changes.
