Like most website operators, we collect 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our Website.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for visitors making a purchase, taking a course, opting-in to receive emails, leaving a message, creating an account, and for users leaving comments on https://www.invouq.com blog posts. We only disclose IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose Personal Data as described below.
Certain visitors to our websites choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather Personal Data. The amount and type of information that we gather depend on the nature of the interaction.

We may ask for address information if we need to deliver a physical product to you. You may also voluntarily provide information such as your address in your account area should you choose to do so. Personal Data may include, but is not limited to: Email address, Name, Address, State, Province, ZIP/Postal code, City, Cookies, and Usage Data.

We use Google Analytics to monitor and analyze the use of our Service. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.
We use the Universal Analytics version of Google Analytics and IP addresses are automatically anonymized under our configuration. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for us. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
We use Google Analytics’ enhanced reporting feature. This feature measures page views, scrolls, outbound clicks, site search, video engagement, and file downloads. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person.
Google Analytics will collect visitation information and associate it with Google information from accounts of signed-in users who have consented to this association for the purpose of ads personalization. This Google information may include end user location, search history, YouTube history, and data from sites that partner with Google—and is used to provide aggregated and anonymized insights into our users’ cross device behaviors. You can control and edit the data Google captures about your activity here.
We use Google Analytics’ demographic features. This allows reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or you can forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described above.
The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.
