If you're an organization looking to track user locations, this app isn't for you. When we created Vium, we made deliberate design decisions to protect and prioritize the privacy and security of end users.

Every customer has a completely separate instance of Vium.
And by "completely separate", we mean: - every Vium customer has a separate application server instance (hosted by Meteor Galaxy, running at AWS) - every Vium customer has a separate database instance (hosted by MongoDB Atlas, running at AWS) - every Vium customer has a separate file storage instance (at AWS) Simply put, there is no way a customer can see any other customer's data, or access another customer's app. Even if there's a bug in some code somewhere. Even if a valid user of one customer tries to access another customer's Vium. Our customers' Vium instances are simply all separate. It costs us more, in both time and money, to architect our platform this way, but in our minds, it's obviously worth it. And we think you'll think so, too.
We handle usage information anonymously.
Vium doesn't identify usage information by user. Analytics regarding content usage don't identify users or groups of users at all, they only report total counts of button clicks across the entire user base. The same goes with ratings of things -- there's only an total average score of the star ratings. Reviews that tag useful or broken/missing items aren't attributed to the user. Individual ratings of things, favorites, and other user-entered data aren't visible to anyone but the user who entered them. Vium is carefully designed to protect anonymity of usage and user-entered data.
Our privacy policy is transparent, accessible, and honest.
Like Vium itself, we keep this simple: your Vium implementation and data aren't shared with, sold to, made available to, or used by anyone other than your users. Data that can identify you as an individual isn't shared with other users. For the full details, check our Privacy Policy:
No one, not even our developers, can ever see your location.
Vium can tell you where you are on the map, but nobody else can know, not even Vium's developers. User location info is not stored in Vium -- it's only in your phone, while you're using the map with location turned on. So, no aspiring Harry Potters out there can use Vium as a Marauder's Map to find you when you're tucked into the back corner of the coffee shop for some distraction-free productivity.
We don't share your information with third parties. And never will.
That's a pretty straightforward statement. For details, you can go to our Privacy Policy:
No video is ever stored or transmitted by Vinny devices, and they're very secure.
One of the most important technological advancements we've made with Vinny is that its people counting never displays, stores, or transmits any video or images. Inside that tiny little box, without even a noisy fan to cool it, Vinny manages to take a look at the area, count the people in it, and send only people count data off to Vium. It's a wonder of processing power that's designed specifically to ensure privacy and security. Tear one apart if you want -- Vinny stores no data when doing its thing. One last security thing about Vinny: if you're a hacker, good luck with that -- there's no password-based access at all to Vinny devices.
We offer two-factor authentication if you want it.
If your organization doesn't want its Vium instance to be vulnerable to password guessing (or to passwords left lying around on post-it notes by users), Vium can be configured to require all users to receive and provide access codes via phone texts to log into Vium. It's much more secure than relying solely on passwords.
