Sharing Information

Unless we have your express consent, VSSI will not sell, rent, loan, trade or lease personal information such as membership data or e-mail lists to any third party.  We treat all information you provide as confidential.  From time to time, we may be required to provide personal information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law.  We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful.  We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.

How Information Is Used

You remain in control of your information.  VSSI will not use or share the personal information we collect in ways unrelated to the purpose for which you provide the information without first obtaining your consent (opt-in).  At the time you provide your information, you can choose whether you want to receive further communications about special offers, product information or other marketing messages.  If we collect your information and you are not presented with a choice that indicates the information you submit will only be used to fulfill your request.  If you do opt-in to marketing communications from VSSI, you can opt-out at any time.  All e-mail communications from us, such as newsletters, tell you how to stop receiving them.

Personal Information Security

VSSI will take reasonable measures to secure the personally identifiable information Users provide to us.  However, VSSI cannot guarantee the security of any information you submit to us and you do so at your own risk.  All personally identifiable information is protected by password and accessible only to authorized VSSI personnel.  However, there is a possibility that Internet transmissions containing a User’s personally identifiable information may be intercepted by others.  There is no way for us to ensure the privacy of User information before it arrives at the Site or after it leaves the Site.

How Long Information Is Stored

VSSI believes it is important, for privacy and security reasons, to delete information when it is no longer needed.  Data retention periods differ depending on the type information collected and its intended purpose.  For example, we will store your e-mail address if you’ve subscribed to one of our newsletters until you opt-out (tell us you no longer wish to receive communications from us).  If you order services from us, account and billing information will be archived according to legal requirements.  If you send us a question or concern we will maintain your information for a reasonable period of time and then delete it.

Changes To Policy

If we make material changes to this Policy, we will post a notice on the home page regarding the amended Policy, so that you are aware of what personally identifiable information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances if any, we disclose it.  We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time, so please review the Site frequently for any changes.  Amendments to this Policy will be posted on the Site and will be effective when posted.  You will be deemed to have been made aware of, will be subject to, and will be deemed to have accepted, the changes to any amended or revised Policy by your continued use of our services or the Site.
