Vyve Privacy Policy

Welcome to the Vyve Privacy Policy!

Vyve LLC. (“Vyve”) respects the privacy of its users (“You”) and has created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate its commitment to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we collect, how that information may be used, how it may be disclosed, and your choices about such disclosures and uses. We strongly encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully when using our application or services. By using our website or our mobile applications, you are accepting the terms of this Privacy Policy.

“Personal Information” means information that independently or in combination with other information may be used to identify, contact, or locate you, such as: name, address, email address, or phone number. We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual.

We don’t bite! If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Policy, please refer to the end of this Privacy Policy for information on how to contact us.

We may collect this information through a website or a mobile application. By using the Service, you are authorizing us to gather, parse and retain data related to the provision of the Service. When you provide personal information through our Service, the information may be sent to servers located in the United States and countries around the world.

-Displaying Information to Other Users. Our Service is a little different than other dating apps out there! You have control of which users can access your full profile.

Information You Post.

We provide areas on our Service where you can post information about yourself and others and communicate with others. Such postings are governed by our Terms of Use.

Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly-viewable pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to posting any personal information.


Third-Party Websites.

There are places on our Service where you may click on a link to access other websites that do not operate under this Privacy Policy.
