USE OF COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS

We may use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect and store your information.

 

Cookies are small files that reside on your computer and allow us to recognize you on your next visit or store your shopping cart contents. We may use them and similar tracking technologies (like  web beacons and pixels) to access or store information.

 

For example, we may use Google Analytics and Advertising cookies to perform statistical, demographic, interest and marketing analyses and to improve customer relationships. We may also use these cookies to deliver more relevant content through Facebook or Google’s Display Network, but this information is not personally identifiable and is only used in aggregate. We may also use Google Maps APIs for purposes of providing better service. You  may find the Google Maps APIs Terms of Service here. To better understand Google’s Privacy Policy, please refer to this link.  

 

By using our Maps API Implementation, you agree to be bound by Google’s Terms of Service. You agree to allow us to obtain or cache your location. You may revoke your consent at anytime. We use information about location in conjunction with data from other data providers.

​​

USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA LOGINS

If you choose to register or log in to our websites using a social media account, we may have access to certain information about you.

 

Our Sites or Apps offer you the ability to register and login using your third party social media account details (like your Facebook or Twitter logins). Where you choose to do this, we will receive certain profile information about you from your social media provider. The profile Information we receive may vary depending on the social media provider concerned, but will often include your name, e­mail address, friends list, profile picture as well as other information you choose to make public.  

 

We will use the information we receive only for the purposes that are described in this privacy policy or that are otherwise made clear to you on the Sites or Apps. Please note that we do not control, and are not responsible for, other uses of your personal information by your third party social media provider. We recommend that you review their privacy policy to understand how they collect, use and share your personal information, and how you can set your privacy preferences on their sites and apps.

HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR INFORMATION

We keep your information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this privacy policy unless otherwise required by law.

 

We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy policy,  unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements).  No purpose in this policy will require us keeping your personal information for longer than the period of time in which users have an account with us.

 

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will  securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

​​

HOW WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE

We aim to protect your personal information through a system of organizational and technical security measures.

We  have  implemented  appropriate technical  and organizational security  measures designed to protect  the security of any personal information we process. However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the internet itself is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our Sites or Apps is at your own risk. You should only access the services within a secure environment.

​​

COLLECTING INFORMATION FROM MINORS

We do not knowingly collect data from or market to children under 18 years of age.

 

We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under 18 years of age. By using the Sites or Apps, you represent that you are at least 18 or that you are the parent or guardian of such a minor and consent to such minor dependent’s use of the Sites or Apps. If we learn that personal information from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records. If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 18, please contact us at info@vcmi.org.
