RapidVisa is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the RapidVisa Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the RapidVisa website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
RapidVisa collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. RapidVisa also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by RapidVisa. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by RapidVisa for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the RapidVisa Web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through RapidVisa public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: RapidVisa does not read any of your private online communications.
RapidVisa encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from RapidVisa so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. RapidVisa is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the RapidVisa and RapidVisa family of Web sites.
Use of your Personal Information
RapidVisa collects and uses your personal information to operate the RapidVisa Web site and deliver the services you have requested. RapidVisa also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from RapidVisa and its affiliates. RapidVisa may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
RapidVisa does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. RapidVisa may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, RapidVisa may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to RapidVisa, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
RapidVisa does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
RapidVisa keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within RapidVisa, in order to determine what RapidVisa services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within RapidVisa to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
RapidVisa Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on RapidVisa or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of RapidVisa; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of RapidVisa, or the public.
The RapidVisa Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize RapidVisa pages, or register with RapidVisa site or services, a cookie helps RapidVisa to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same RapidVisa Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the RapidVisa features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the RapidVisa services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
RapidVisa secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. RapidVisa secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
We use Google Analytics, Google AdWords Conversion tracker, and other Google services that place cookies on a browser across the website. These cookies help us increase the website’s effectiveness for our visitors. These cookies are set and read by Google. To opt out of Google tracking, please visit this page (http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/).
We use AdWords remarketing to market our sites across the web. We place a cookie on a browser, and then a 3rd party (Google) reads these cookies and may serve an ad on a 3rd party site. You may opt out of this ad serving on Google’s opt out page. If you are concerned about 3rd party cookies served by networks, you should also visit the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page (http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/).

A full refund is also available if one of the following conditions exist:

It is not more than 60 days since your purchase.
You have not reached the 100% completion point, as indicated by our records.
