1.2 “Personal Data” or “personal data” means data, whether true or not, about an individual who can be identified from that data, or from that data and other information to which an organisation has or is likely to have access. Common examples of personal data could include name, identification number and contact information.
2. Collection of Personal Data
2.1 Like most website operators, Vegan collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Vegan’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Vegan’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Vegan may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. The above does not purport to be exhaustive and sets out some common instances of when personal data about you may be collected.
2.2 Vegan also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on website blog posts. Vegan only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
2.3 Certain visitors to Vegan’s websites choose to interact with Vegan in ways that require Vegan to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Vegan gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://www.vegan.com.my to provide a username and email address.
3. Log Files
Vegan follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
Like any other website, Vegan uses ‘cookies’. These cookies are used to store information including visitors’ preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. The information is used to optimize the users’ experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors’ browser type and/or other information.
5. Third Party Privacy Policies
6. Children’s Information
Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity. Vegan does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will do our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
