VGM LLC (“QLife Media”) operates the QLife Media software platform. It is QLife Media’s policy to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and security of any personal information about its users.
This Privacy & Security Policy (“Policy”) explains how QLife Media (“We”, “Us”, or “Our”) collects, uses, shares, and keeps secure your information (“You”, “you”, “Your”, or “User”), including your nonpublic personal information, when You use QLife Media’s website qlifemedia.com (the “Website”), mobile application (the “App”), and any related products and services (collectively referred to as the “Services”).
By using Our Services, you are agreeing to this Policy. If you do not agree to these terms, you may not use the Services. Pursuant to this Policy, You direct Our partner(s) to share your transactional data with QLife Media, and you direct QLife Media to share your data with its users, vendors, partners, and affiliates at its discretion, in a way that would otherwise be contrary to this Policy.
Like most website operators, QLife Media collects non-personally identifying information 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. QLife Media’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how QLife Media’s visitors use its website. From time to time, QLife Media may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
QLife Media also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in Users and for Users leaving comments on blogs. QLife Media only discloses logged-in User and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
QLife Media collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with QLife Media. QLife Media does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Services.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
The amount and type of information that QLife Media gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. Certain visitors to QLife Media’s websites choose to interact with QLife Media in ways that require QLife Media to gather personally identifying information, most notably when becoming a “Customer” (which means that you have registered with QLife Media to use its App or related products or services). Registration involves the provision of an email address and a password, or authentication through a third-party authentication service (collectively the “Registration Information”).
In order to benefit from the full functionality of the Services, you also must provide your third-party account credentials (“Account Credentials”) to allow QLife Media and our partners to access your account data (“Account Information”) for your use.
Use of Personally-Identifying Information
QLife Media and its affiliated companies use and disclose User’s personal information to provide the Services, including for the purposes of:

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
QLife Media discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on QLife Media’s behalf or to provide services available at QLife Media’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using QLife Media’s Services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. QLife Media will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, QLife Media discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental requests, or when QLife Media believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of QLife Media, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of QLife Media Services (i.e. Customer) and have supplied your email address, QLife Media may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with QLife Media and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. QLife Media takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We utilize physical, electronic, and procedural security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We offer industry-standard practices and security measures to safeguard and secure the personal information we collect. However, some of the applications or networks that you use may not be completely secure, thus we cannot guarantee absolute security.
Cookies & Other Technologies
We may also use various technologies to collect and store information related to Your use of our Services. We may collect and store information locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage and application data caches.
If QLife Media, or substantially all of its assets, are acquired, or in the event that QLife Media goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of QLife Media may continue to use Your personal information as set forth in this Policy.
