Why Vectera needs to process personal information

Vectera requires its users to register with their email address, first name, last name and a password in order to obtain an account at Vectera. This allows the user lock meeting rooms and use more, extended features of Vectera. The email address makes it possible to make a distinction between different users. Your first- and last name are required to join a new meeting room.

Your personal information will not be visible to other users. You agree that we may use your personal information to contact you about issues with your usage of Vectera or to inform you about Vectera.

Here you can find an overview of what information we use, how we use it, and how you can ask us to remove it.

When... We store... Until...
You visit Vectera anonymously. Nothing personal! We do capture your IP address, operating system, browser type and network information. Why do we collect this data? To make Vectera more smooth, improve your experience and mostly to keep our developers busy ;-) 6 months after your last login. Your information will be automatically and completely removed from our servers.
You create an account on Vectera. Your email address, because we like to know how to reach you. We use this when you reached out with feedback, when we're launching Vectera updates, when we have some big news about Vectera. You get the picture. Don't want to receive awesome, but sometimes generic communication from us? Just disable our newsletters in the footer of our not-personally-addressed-emails or gives us a shout at request@vectera.com.

The moment you request to delete your account at request@vectera.com. (We're pretty fast at replying.)

2 years after your last login, we will automatically remove your personal information from our servers, unless we are required to hold (part of) this information for legal or tax purposes. You will be notified in advance when we will be deleting your information.

Your first and last name, because we like to know who we're talking to :-) Also because your name will be automatically filled in when joining or creating a meeting room.
Your password. We can't read it, though.
You use a Vectera meeting room. The information you enter in the knock-knock screen (probably your name or your pseudonyme). Until 6 months after your last use (for anonymous users) or 2 years (for registered users). You will be notified in advance when we will be deleting your information.
The content you create in or add to Shared Content. This includes uploaded content. You give us a shout at request@vectera.com. Until then, everything is stored on secure servers up until 6 months after your last use (for anonymous users) or 2 years (for registered users). You will be notified in advance when we will be deleting your information.
The information you enter in Chat.
Data about your usage of Vectera Meeting rooms. This includes the time you spent in your meeting room, which panels you used, you get the gist. Why do we collect this data? To make Vectera more smooth, improve your experience and mostly to keep our developers busy ;-) The data about your usage is anonymized when you delete your account or request a removal of your information or when your account is automatically deleted (2 years after your last login).
FYI: The Vectera team only has access to the meeting rooms in case of technical assistance. We never communicate your generated content in Shared Content or Chat to third parties.

To make sure you don't lose your work, we constantly make backups of Vectera, which are stored for at most 30 days.

 

Personal information shared with sub-processors

Vectera uses Active Campaign (AC) as a CRM. The information held on AC contains (if shared with Vectera): your email address, first- and last name, telephone number, company. Only after giving your explicit consent, your activity on the domain vectera.com is tracked by AC. Your activity can be used for automated decision making and profiling.

This information can be adjusted or removed on request (see below).

I no longer give my consent to Vectera to hold my personal information

Send an email at request@vectera.com and your consent will be revoked.

I want to adjust my personal information.

That's easy! Just go to vectera.com/profile and change your details. Or send us an email at request@vectera.com.

I want my information to be removed.

That's ok. Just send us an email at request@vectera.com and you're off our grid. Sorry to see you go though!

 

Terms of Service

These Terms of Service, including the Vectera Privacy Policy, govern your use of and access to the Vectera web application and website (referred to as "Vectera"), and any content, video, audio or any other materials sent, stored, received or otherwise appearing in Vectera (referred to as "Content"). By using Vectera, you convey your irrevocable acceptance of the Terms of Service.

Vectera is the exclusive property of Vectera VOF, VAT BE0653.859.380 RPR Ghent, Jean Jaurèslaan 111, 9050 Gentbrugge Belgium.

Description of Vectera

Vectera is a web application, that runs in the browser, where you can meet and share Content with other people through video chat (referred to as "People"), Shared Content (referred to as "Shared Content") and chat. (referred to as "Chat") Each meeting room has a unique URL with a meeting room ID added after vectera.com/meet/[meeting-room-ID]. When users visit the same URL, they appear in the same meeting room.

Vectera works without installations. Only when using Shared Content, some browsers require installing a plugin (which is possible without leaving Vectera).

Communication (audio and video) in Vectera is peer-to-peer and end-to-end encrypted.

A meeting room is by default unlocked if you don’t have an account. This means that anyone with the meeting room URL has access to the meeting room. To lock a meeting room, you need to be the owner of a meeting room. To become the owner of a meeting room, an account at Vectera is required.

An account can be created at www.vectera.com/signup. Creating an account requires you to agree to the Vectera Terms of Service and to the Vectera Privacy Policy.

When joining your meeting room, other users land in a waiting room in which they can request the owner of the meeting room to be let in.

Uploaded Content in Shared Content and text in Chat are saved permanently in meeting rooms. Permanently removing Content in Shared Content is possible by deleting the meeting room. Deleting the Chat history is possible when you reset the meeting room. This also clears all other Content. To reset a room, you need to be owner of the meeting room.

The owner of a meeting room can grant other users permanent access to the meeting room by selecting the user’s username or email address.

Vectera Admins can join any meeting room without requesting permission of the owner. This will only happen when technical support is requested or required. If deemed necessary, you will be notified.

When you have an account, you can set a personal image for the waiting room.
