Vista offers you a wide range of services to bring together your print, digital and design needs. Depending on which services you use, we collect various types of Personal Information from different sources. As described below, some information is collected automatically when you visit our Sites and Apps, or purchase something, and some you provide to us when registering or filling out a form, uploading content, buying a product or service, or communicating with us. We may also acquire information indirectly from third parties and other sources, including social media websites. If you choose not to share certain Personal Information, we might not be able to provide some of our Services. Similarly, if you decline to let us place certain cookies on your device, our Sites and Apps will only have limited functionality (see more information about cookies below).
3.1 Personal Information we collect automatically.
Device and location data. Whenever you visit or navigate our Sites and Apps, we automatically collect certain information through your device or browser. This information includes your IP address and information about your computer's hardware and software (for example, the type of operating system, the browser you use, the versions of the application or software, and language settings). We may also collect location information from your IP address or if you have instructed your device to send such information via the privacy settings on that device. We collect some of this information using cookies or other similar technologies directly from your device. For more information about how we use these technologies, see our Cookies section below.
Site navigation and usage data. We also automatically collect and store certain information about your activities on our Sites and Apps such as the date, time and pages you visit, and how you use our Services and access its contents (such as search history, clickstream data, access logs and other usage data regarding your interactions with our Sites and Apps, and our marketing emails and online ads).
Session replay recordings. We also collect session replay recordings (such as mouse movements, clicks, typing, and scrolling).
Purchase and transaction history. If you place an order or request a service, we will collect your purchase and transaction history.
Bot usage data. If you contact us via chatbot, in addition to processing your contact information, we will be able to collect your device information and IP address.
If you are a registered user, we link this automatically-collected data to the other Personal Information we collect about you as described below. We use this data for various purposes as further detailed below.
3.2 Personal Information you give us.
Contact details and log-in credentials. When you register for an account on our Sites and Apps, we collect your first and last name, e-mail address and password.
Payment information. If you place an order or request a service, we collect information that you provide to us such as your shipping, billing, and payment information (such as credit card or bank account details) as well as tax information and information to verify your identity (i.e., passport, ID card or driver's license information). You may also have the option to store credit card or other payment information to make it easier to purchase products or services from our Sites and Apps in the future.
Content data. Some of our Services allow you to upload and share images, photos, logos, videos, music tracks or other content (“Content”) with us or other users, in order to communicate with us or other users or to personalise products and services. The Content you choose to upload to our Sites and Apps may include Personal Information about you. For example, if you design and personalise a product, such as a business card, we collect the Personal Information you use to customise the product, such as the name of your business, your professional title, your photo or other Content you upload. If you choose to enter into a design contest, we collect the Personal Information you choose to provide to us in the logo and brand guide brief, such as the name of your business, your slogan or other Content you upload. When you upload your Content to our Sites and Apps, or give us permission to access the Content stored on your device, your Content may also include related image information such as the time and the place your photo was taken, tags and similar information stored by your image capture device.
Profile information. We may collect demographic information about you such as your gender, country and preferred language, as well as other information about your interests and preferences, including favourite templates and work on designs or products. For example, if you are a designer using our Services, we will store the information on the profile you create and the content you choose to make available to other users, such as your professional background, time zone, location, avatar, design concepts and templates, service offerings, and messages and testimonials. Some of this information is part of your public profile and will be publicly visible.
Communications and marketing. If you contact our customer service teams or communicate with us by other means (for example, social networks), we will also collect information from you from these communications, either in relation to feedback you give us or help you ask for in relation to the use of our products and services. We will also collect your preferences in receiving direct marketing from us and our third parties, and your communication preferences.
Forms. From time-to-time, we may give you the opportunity to participate in sweepstakes, contests or surveys. If you participate, we will collect certain Personal Information from you and we may publicly disclose that information.
Reviews. We may also ask you to write a review to share your experiences with others. When you write a review on our Sites and Apps, we collect the information you include, along with the name you display. Please note that reviews posted on our Sites and Apps are public, so only include information you are comfortable with sharing publicly.

i) Security: To prevent and detect fraud, unauthorized activities, access, and other misconduct; to improve the security of our network and information systems; and to enhance our data security and fraud prevention capabilities. For security purposes, we may conduct profiling based on your interactions with our Services, your profile information and other Content you submit to us, and information obtained from third parties (for example to lock stolen accounts or accounts that are used for spamming/fraud).
