Privacy Policy

Who is IVM?

International Vending Management, Inc. (“IVM”) offers smart vending and locker solutions (“services”) for internal distribution of products to our clients and their employees. Our corporate office is located at 5155 Technology Way Indianapolis, IN 46268, USA.

This Privacy Notice describes our privacy practices in relation to your use of our website (www.ivminc.com) and our services. This Notice also describes your choices regarding use, access, and sharing of your personal data by IVM.

GDPR Readiness

What is the GDPR?

The European Union has taken a monumental step in protecting the fundamental right to privacy for every EU resident with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will be effective from May 25, 2018. Simply put, EU residents will now have greater say over what, how, why, where, and when their personal data is used, processed, or disposed. This rule clarifies how the EU personal data laws apply even beyond the borders of the EU. Any organization that works with EU residents’ personal data in any manner, irrespective of location, has obligations to protect the data.

Statement of Commitment

At IVM, we take the trust placed in us to secure and protect our customer’s data very seriously. We are also aware of our role in providing the right tools and processes to support our customer’s need to meet their GDPR mandates. IVM is fully committed to the GDPR and we have recently published some important updates to our Privacy Policy at https://ivminc.com/privacy , effective May 25, 2018. These updates are just enhancements which clarify and provide additional information about:

  • Privacy rights and how to exercise them.
  • Child privacy protection
  • GDPR compliance and requirements
  • The right to Erasure and how to exercise that
  • How we collect, use, share and protect personal data.
  • The legal basis we rely on to process personal data.
  • How we operate in our capacity as a data processor acting on behalf of our customers.

Standard Contractual Clauses

Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of Personal Data to third countries pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and the Council approved by European Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021, as currently set at https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_en requirement for the transfer of personal data outside of the EU under the EU Data Protection Directive and outside of Switzerland under the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection.

IVM agrees that it shall abide by the terms of the Standard Contractual Clauses (as applicable) as set out in Module Two (Controller to Processor). The Standard Contractual Clauses shall apply to IVM, Inc in its role as the “data importer.” IVM, Inc has agreed that, as provided in the Standard Contractual Clauses, Data Subjects shall be third party beneficiaries to the Standard Contractual Clause.

What about personal data that is provided to IVM by one of our Customers?

For information that a customer provides to IVM about their employees to use our services, we do not own this data. Our services are used by our customers for internal distribution of products to their employees. Those customers are the owners (controllers) of the data that is provided to them. If personal data is provided to one of our customers, their employees should contact that customer to access, correct or delete their personal data.
For personal data provided to us by our customers, we consider that information to be private and owned by the customer. We allow access to the customer account and any reports therein to the person with the authorized username and password login information for that account.

Data Protection Addendum

IVM has updated its Data Processing agreements to add the GDPR specific clauses as required by GDRP Article 28. Below is a summary of what was added to meet compliance:

    • The processor agrees to process personal data only on written instructions of the controller. Everyone who comes into contact with the data is sworn to confidentiality.
    • All appropriate technical and organizational measures are used to protect the security of the data.
    • The processor will not subcontract to another processor without notifying the controller in writing the, in which case the new subproccessor will need to be added to the DPA (pursuant to Sections 2 and 4 of Article 28).
    • The processor will help the controller uphold their obligations under the GDPR, particularly concerning data subjects’ rights.
    • The processor will help the controller maintain GDPR compliance with regard to Article 32 (security of processing) and Article 36 (consulting with the data protection authority before undertaking high-risk processing).
    • The processor must allow the controller to conduct an audit and will provide whatever information necessary to prove compliance.

We share your personal information with the following categories of third parties:

      • Service providers.
      • Data Aggregators.

Your Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:

      • The categories of personal information we’ve collected about you.
      • The categories of sources for the personal information we’ve collected about you.
      • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
      • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
      • The specific pieces of personal information we’ve collected about you (also called a data portability request).
      • If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
        • sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and
        • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

      • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
      • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
      • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
      • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
      • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
      • Comply with a legal obligation.
      • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

      • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we’ve collected personal information or an authorized representative.
      • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Personal Information Sales

We will not sell your personal information to any party. If in the future, we anticipate selling your personal information to any party, we will provide you with the opt-out and opt-in rights required by the CCPA.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

      • Deny you goods or services.
      • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
      • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
      • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
