Who controls your personal information?
Any personal information provided to or gathered by Vast is controlled by:
800 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 200
Los Angeles, California 90017
What information do we collect from you?
The amount and type of information we gather depends upon your use of the Website and, in some cases, what type of information you choose to disclose. We may collect the following information from you:
Personal Information Provided by You
We collect information from you when you voluntarily submit your personal information to us over the Website, including as part of registering a User Account, or ordering Products. Such personal information may include your name, email address, Product preferences, your Subscription Plan, and other information which you voluntarily provide to us.
All payments submitted via the Website are processed by third-party vendors, and not Vast itself. If you make a payment through the Website, we will collect credit card numbers and related information, such as billing address, card number, and the expiration date of the card (“Credit Card Information”), but such information is sent directly to our payment processors using PCI Compliant rules/software and is never stored or otherwise retained by Vast.
Device/Internet Connection Information
When you use the Website, we automatically gather information made available by your web browser (such as Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome), Internet service provider (such as Comcast or Cox), and device (such as your computer, phone, or tablet), depending on your settings for each. For example, we may collect your IP address, information about the operating system or type of device you use, the device id associated with your device, the date and time you access the Website, your log in attempts, and the location of your device.
Information Provided by Third Parties
Vast may receive information about you and your Internet activities if you have provided it to a Third-Party and we subsequently acquire the information from the Third-Party. For example, if you have your Credit Card Information saved for easier access in your internet browser, we may obtain such information from your browser when you authorize its use to make a payment on the Website. These Third Parties may have collected such information by placing Cookies on your device, using web beacons, gathering IP addresses and log data, and so forth as described below.
Information You Make Public
Vast collects information from you that you voluntarily upload to the Website for public display, such as Your Content (“Public Information”). For example, when you post a review or comment about a Product, you voluntarily submit the information associated with the review to Vast. Please note that, once you submit Public Information, you and Vast both have little to no control over how it may be shared or used by third parties, even if you and Vast later delete such Public Information. Accordingly, you should carefully consider what personal information you choose to include within your Public Information.
From time to time, we may obtain other information from you, such as when you make a claim for a prize pursuant to a contest or other promotion run on the Website, when you request assistance through our customer service department, and when you voluntarily subscribe to Vast promotions, reminders or newsletters. You will always be asked to provide such other information voluntarily, and we will not collect it without your permission.

Remember, you can change your Cookie settings in your Internet browser (e.g., Chrome, Edge, Firefox). For more information, see https://www.allaboutcookies.org/.
How do we use your information?
We use the information we’ve gathered from you, including through Cookies and web beacons, for the following purposes:
To Communicate with You
To Improve our Services
Vast uses the information we collect from you and other users to improve our product offerings and services. For example, we may consider analytics, demographics, and user feedback collected via the Website in determining whether there is sufficient demand for a new Product, Subscription Plan, or service.
To Improve the Website
To Personalize Your User Experience
We use information gathered from Cookies to determine whether you are logged in or not, to allow you to set personal preferences when using the Website, and to make it so you don’t have to reenter the same information when you visit the Website several times within a short timeframe.
To Advertise to You
We may use information gathered through Cookies and web beacons, including those placed by Third Parties, to deliver ads to you via the Website, and after you’ve left the Website, including advertising specific to your personal interests. The purpose of this practice, which is sometimes called “Personalized Ads,” “retargeting,” or “remarketing” is to deliver content and advertising that is of interest to you, and to avoid displaying irrelevant advertising to you.

How do we share your information with others?
To Advertise to Others
We may share your reviews, comments, and other content uploaded by you to advertise and market our Website and the Services, including by reposting your reviews on the Website, in our advertising, or through our social media accounts.

To Our Affiliated Companies
To Our Third-Party Partners, Including Advertising Partners
We may disclose your personal information as needed to our Third-Party service providers and advertising partners. For example, we may share your email address with our email fulfillment provider. These Third Parties and advertising partners only use your information to perform services for us that allow us to provide and promote the Website and Products. We do not sell your personal information to any third party.
To Comply with Legal Process and Prevent Harm
We may disclose your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, and other legal processes. In very rare circumstances, we may disclose personal information when we believe it is necessary in order to prevent illegal, fraudulent, or injurious actions that may cause harm to individuals.
How do we secure your information?
Vast, and the Third-Party vendors we use to store your information, employ security measures (such as SSL encryption and HTTPS protocol) to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.
However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your personal and commercial information, or other communications, will always remain secure.
We store your personal information in the United States.
Vast stores personal information in the United States. If you are visiting the Website from a location outside of the United States, your connection will be through and to servers located in the United States, and all information you provide will be processed and securely maintained in our web servers and internal systems located within the United States. By using the Website, you authorize and specifically consent to the transfer of personal information to the United States and its storage and use as specified above when you provide such information to us.
How can you access or correct your information?
You may access all information we’ve collected and retained about you for purposes of correcting, amending, downloading, or deleting such information. Access can be obtained by contacting hi@DrinkVast.com. To protect your privacy and security, we may take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
California Shine the Light Disclosure
Under California’s “Shine the Light” law, California residents who provide personal information to the Website may request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at connect@TRAXOne.com.
How do we protect the privacy of children?
Vast will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 13. If we obtain actual knowledge that we have collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from our database. Because we do not collect such information, we have no such information to use or to disclose to Third Parties. We have designed this policy in order to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
Do we respond to Do Not Track (DNT) Signals?
DNT is a feature offered by some browsers which, when enabled, sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing is not tracked. Vast does not currently respond to DNT requests.
