This website is operated by Virya Group Limited. The primary purpose of our website is to be a useful resource and business tool. We also want you to feel secure when visiting our website and we are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so. This Privacy and Cookies Statement therefore sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to assure you that we recognise and fully respect the privacy and personal data of the visitors to our website and to explain what personal information we collect from our website and how we ensure its best protection.


Use of this website by you constitutes acceptance by you of our Privacy and Cookies Statement. If you do not wish to accept our Privacy and Cookies Statement, please leave this website immediately. By using this website, you also consent to the collection and use of your personal information in the manner set out below.

Extent of Privacy and Cookies Statement

This Privacy and Cookies Statement covers information which is collected by Virya Group Limited from this website only. Other sites to which this website may be linked are not covered by this Privacy and Cookies Statement. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

The following now provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit to our website.

What personal information do we gather?

Like most website operators, Virya Group collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site and the date and time of each visitor request.  The purpose in collecting non-personally-identying information is to better understand how visitors use the website.  From time to time, Virya Group may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate (e.g. by publishing trend reports on the usage of the website).

Virya Group also collects potentially personally-identifying information (PII) like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.  Virya Group does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Virya Group's website choose to interact with Virya Group in ways that require Virya Group to gather personally-identifying information (PII).  The amount and type of information that Virya Group gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.  For example, we ask visitors who purchase extensions or themes to provide a username and email address.  In each case, Virya Group collects such information insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Virya Group.  Virya Group does not disclose PII other than as described below. Visitors may always refuse to supply PII, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated statistics and reports

Virya Group may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website, which may be used in public reports.  As an example, Virya Group might reveal how many downloads a particular theme or extension had, or what features are the most popular.  Virya Group does not, however, disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of certain personally-identifying information

Virya Group discloses potentially personally-identifying information and personally-identifying information (PII) only to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that:

  1. need to know that information in order to process it on Virya Group's behalf or to provide services to Virya Group's websites and;
  2. have agreed not to disclose it to others

Some of these employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country - by using the Virya Group website you consent to the transfer of information to them.  

Virya Group will never rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information and personally-identifying information to anyone.  Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations as described above, Virya Group discloses potentially personally-identifying information and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Virya Group believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Virya Group, third parties, or the public at large.

If you are registered user at Virya Group and have supplied your email address (including to trading name companies Virya Software, Virya Technologies and Microdata for Joomla), Virya Group may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features and updates, solicit your feedback, or just to keep you up to date with what's going on with Virya Group and our products.  We primarily use our news and blog sections to communicate this kind of information, so we expect to keep this kind of email communication to a minimum.

If you send us a support request via our helpdesk or live chat, we reserve the right to publis it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request, or to help us to support other users.  Virya Group takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Automatic collection, cookies and web beacons

Virya Group or our service providers or our third party advertisers or links to third party websites and social media widgets may use automatic collection technologies including cookies and web beacons that collect information about you or your visits for purposes of improving your web activities or to deliver targeted content to you.  Virya Group does not provide any personally-identifying information to these third parties and is not responsible or liable for nor do we endorse or control their activities.  Use of third party links, advertisers, sites and/or widgets will be subject to the respective third party's privacy policies and terms of service.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser providers to the website each time the visitor returns.  Virya Group uses cookies to help identify and track visitors, their usage of Virya Group's website, and their website access preferences.  Virya Group visitors who do not wish to have cookies places on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Virya Group website, with the caveat that some features of Virya Group's website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Pages of this website and any e-mails sent to you may contain web beacons.  Web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) are small electronic files which are embedded within a web page or email to document traffic and for website analytics without collecting any Personal Information, that, for example, allow us to count users who have visited web pages or opened our emails.

Children's personal information
