VSI is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you a powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the VSI Website and governs data collection and usage. By using the VSI Website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
VSI collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. VSI also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by VSI. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Website addresses. This information is used by VSI for the operation of the service, to maintain the quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the VSI Website.
If you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through VSI public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: VSI does not read any of your private online communications.
VSI encourages you to review the privacy statements of Websites you choose to link to/from VSI, so that you can understand how those Websites collect, use and share your information. VSI is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Websites outside of the VSI and VSI family of Websites.
To operate the VSI Website and deliver the services you have requested, VSI collects and uses your personal information. VSI also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from VSI and its affiliates. VSI may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
VSI does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. VSI may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, VSI may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to VSI, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
VSI does not collect, use, or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
VSI keeps track of the Websites and pages our customers visit within VSI, in order to determine what VSI services are the most popular and effective. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within VSI to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
VSI Websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on VSI or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of VSI; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of VSI, or the public.
The VSI Website uses "cookies" to personalize your online experience. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web Server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web Server that you have returned to a specific page, a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize VSI pages, or register with VSI site or services, a cookie helps VSI to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same VSI Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, allowing you to easily use the VSI features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web Browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the VSI services or Websites you visit.
VSI secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. VSI secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
VSI will occasionally update this Privacy Statement to reflect company and customer feedback. VSI encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how VSI is protecting your information.
VSI welcomes your comments regarding this Privacy Statement. If you believe that VSI has not adhered to this Statement, please contact VSI at webmaster@VisualSolutionsInc.com. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
