Valloc Privacy Policy

Publish Date: 2018-08-29

 

Valloc has a primary goal to provide you, the user, with tools to more speedily and enjoyably browse the web. Less clutter, more efficiency. Your privacy is respected and of top concern. Please review below to learn specifics.

 

Page Privacy

Each user has an account, which can have multiple pages. Every page can contain a number of links; some of which can be personal regarding how or what, a person links to. To allow for privacy for page content, Valloc provides a simple mechanism to elect a page as either public or private. The differences are as follows:

1.      Public pages are accessible to anyone, not signed in and visible to the public. This is often preferred if a user wishes to share his/her page with family for fellow co-workers or students. This means the page is publicly reachable via the username and page combination in the browser's URL bar, for anyone to visit if they can assemble the URL path.

2.      Private pages are only accessible if the user is securely logged in under that page's owner, or username. If a page is private, it is securely transmitted over SSL, which is an encrypted channel. You can simply set your page to be private by going to the Page Designer for that page and select the Private radio button then save.

 

Cookies

Valloc uses cookies minimally. They are used enhance the experience - they do not store or pass user data. There are only two cookies, which you will find in your browser's internals. They are as follows:

1.      vsk: This is a 'Remember me' cookie that allows a user to establish a secure, logged-in session with the server after previously closing the browser and revisiting, without having to re-login. The cookie is established after a user has logged-in for either the first time or after having last deleted cookies. The intent is to provide secure method to quickly revisit a protected page. Without this, or if you block cookies, then the user will need to sign-in after re-opening the browser before visiting a secured page. If blocked, this will be an inconvenience.

2.      JSESSIONID: This cookie is used to track active user data while active on the server, primarily for caching purposes in serving pages efficiently. It expires when the browser closes. If this cookie is blocked or removed, it will redirect the user to the login page with every click to a protected page. This is more a necessity, but the site will permit limited usage if the cookie is removed. If blocked, this too will be an inconvenience.
