Subscriber Companies. Personal information and any associated data, including those for training the artificial intelligence models or used as query during decision making and use of the Service, provided to Vettd by Users or Subscriber Companies may be analyzed or combined with other information and shared back with the same Users or Subscriber Companies as part of the Services.
Third Party Service Providers.

These third-party service providers are required not to use your personal information other than to provide the services requested by Vettd.

We will share your feedback with your first name and last initial only. If we choose to post your first and last name along with your feedback, we will obtain your consent prior to posting your name with your feedback.
Creation of Anonymous Data. We may create anonymous data records from personal information by excluding information makes the data personally identifiable. We use this anonymous data to build models and to test, analyze and improve our Services. We reserve the right to use anonymous data for any purpose and disclose anonymous data to third parties in our sole discretion.
Users who have entered data directly into the Services may request what personal data we have, request their data be changed or request deletion of their data by sending an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may request additional information to authenticate the identity of the User and will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request, but please note that we may be required to keep such information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives. We may also retain your information for fraud prevention or similar purposes.
Users within the scope of this Privacy Shield certification have certain legal rights to access certain personal data we hold about them and to obtain its correction, amendment or deletion. Those users may exercise some of those rights through the options described in this section. In some circumstances, Vettd has limited ability to identify and access individual personal data that our Subscriber Companies have submitted to the Services. If you wish to request access, to limit use, or to limit disclosure, we may first refer your request to the Subscriber Company who submitted your personal data, and we will support them as needed in responding to your request.
Vettd is committed to protecting the security of personal information submitted by Users or Subscriber Companies. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We also require you to enter a password to access your Account information. Please do not disclose your Account password to unauthorized people. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while Vettd uses reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, Vettd cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Vettd does not target its offerings toward and does not knowingly collect any personal information from users under 13 years of age. If Vettd learns that the User is a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe that we might have any personal information from a child under 13, please contact us at: email@example.com.

There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. We currently do not take action in response to these signals. When a standard is established, we may revise our policy on responding to these signals.
