What information does VCS collect?

VCS collects and stores personally identifiable information when it is voluntarily provided. Personally identifiable information is any information that may reasonably be used to identify you and may include any name, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, or any other information transmitted by you when registering or using the Products. Additionally, VCS may collect copies of correspondence and personally identifiable information if you directly contact us.

VCS may also passively collect information from you that is not personally identifiable as a result of your registration or use of the Products. For example, VCS may track, log, and/or record information about the date and time you registered or used the Products, the type of browser used, and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. VCS may collect this information by depositing certain bits of information called “cookies” in your computer. A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. This technology does not collect your personally identifiable information, but rather, this information is collected in an aggregate form.

How does VCS use the information it collects?

When VCS receives personally identifiable information, VCS may use it for reasonable business purposes as determined by VCS. For example, VCS may use this information to contact you via e-mail, mail, and/or telephone in order to provide you with information VCS believes may be of interest. It may also be used for compiling data and analyses to understand and serve VCS’s customer needs. Additionally, we may use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personally identifiable information, to evaluate the use and utility of the Products.

What information may VCS disclose and/or share?

We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.

Such information may be shared with: (a) VCS employees and affiliates; (b) the customer from which VCS received the information; (c) VCS consultants and/or third-parties that have agreed to safeguard such information in a like manner to the way that VCS safeguards such information and that have signed confidentiality agreements with VCS; and (d) other entities authorized to have access to such information under applicable law or regulation, such as law enforcement. VCS does not share non-public personally identifiable information with third party marketers.

VCS may disclose personally identifiable information: to comply with any court order, law or legal process,including to respond to any government or regulatory request; to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements, including for billing and collection purposes and; if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of VCS, our customers or others.

VCS will not use or share information in ways unrelated to those described above without first notifying you and offering you a choice as to whether or not VCS may use your data in this different manner.
