When accessing our site, VECUSA will learn certain information about you during your visit.
Similar to other commercial sites, our site uses a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information on how our site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include, but is not limited to, the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our site, and your IP address.
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Web site, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone.
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?
Generally speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other items and services to our customers and prospective customers.
VECUSA will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us, nor will such information be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection.
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. Thus, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. However, doing so is allowed, but do so at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on our site may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information should never be transmitted via email.
VECUSA may use software programs to create statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, VECUSA uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
Children are not eligible to use our site and services, and we ask that minors (under the age of 13) do not submit any personal information to us. If you are a minor, you should use this site only in conjunction with permission and guidance from your parents or guardians.
FUTURE POLICY CHANGES
We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.
If you have any questions regarding this Policy, or your dealings with our web site, please contact us via the contact form on our site.
