User space install of Vivaldi without sudo/root/elevated privilege on Linux

How do you do a non-privileged install of Vivaldi on Linux without access to a package manager?
I'm allowed to install trusted packages on my RedHat 7 box at work, but only in my directory and with no elevated privilege. I was able to do user-space installs easily with Opera (which I used back when you had to pay for it :-), so I expected it to be equally simple for Vivaldi, but I'm missing something.
I'm sure this has been asked dozens of times, but no matter how I compose my search I can't find it. I found one answer from 3 years ago that wasn't clear to me. I've been hoping to recommend Vivaldi to my co-workers, but they're in the same boat privilege-wise.
YES! You can, we can! ;)
Use a Standalone, extract the deb/rpm package.
Please read https://help.vivaldi.com/article/standalone-version-of-vivaldi/ and
for a Standalone install.
