Information Collection and Use
Vibe Shifting is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Vibe Shifting collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
Vibe Shifting web pages may include clear gifs, also known as web-beacons and tracking pixels. Gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, which are used to count your visits to the page (but which do not retain any personally identifiable information). This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movements within the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Unless required to do so by law, www.VibeShifting.com does not share, rent, trade or sell your information to anyone else. Ever.

Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site may request information from users via surveys or contests.
