Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses
The Internet Protocol (IP) address is usually associated with the place from which the person enters, i.e., logs onto, the Internet, like the Internet Service Provider (ISP), or VBS. The VBS server may also record the referring page that linked the individual to us (e.g., another website or a search engine); the pages visited on this website; the website visited after this website; the ads seen; the ads clicked on; other information about the type of web browser, platform, related software and settings in use; any search terms the person has entered on this website or a referral site; and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers.

VBS may use the person’s IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, gather broad demographic information, monitor usage of our site, access its performance, and administer our website. We may also use this data to conduct statistical analyses on visitors’ usage patterns and other aggregated data.

VBS logs IP addresses for systems administration purposes only. VBS may link this information with the individual’s personally identifiable information when necessary to protect our rights or property, enforce compliance with our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use, to protect our website and other important information, prevent harm to you or others, and/or otherwise comply with an applicable law. Notwithstanding, this information will not be sold or shared to third parties unless under limited circumstances as stated below.

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by a browser on the individual’s computer's hard drive. VBS cookies enable us to facilitate access to different aspects of our website. For example, by showing when and how a person visits the VBS website, cookies help to see which pages of the website are popular and which pages are not. Also, cookies help VBS to improve enjoyment of this website, for example, by remembering the IP address or other personal information when the person requests information or services on the website.

VBS may use personally identifiable information to communicate with the individual. Persons will have the opportunity to “opt-out” of receiving such communications from VBS at any time. To discontinue receiving such communications, simply reply to the email received with the word "Remove" in the subject line.

We will retain your e-mail communication until we have done our very best to provide you with a complete and satisfactory response and may subsequently retain your communication for our records. We will not use or disclose your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information contained in your correspondence for any purposes other than those for which you have provided them except under limited circumstances as stated below or without first obtaining your permission.

Unless otherwise prohibited by law, you agree that VBS may use or disclose Comments without identifying their source and without compensation to you.

Security
VBS limits access to personally identifiable information about our customers to our staff and third-party agents, who we reasonably believe need to have access to this information to provide information or services requested from VBS on your behalf. These third parties are prohibited from using the personally identifiable information for any other purpose other than to provide the requested services and are required to adhere to privacy and security principles.

The VBS website has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, VBS uses industry “best practice” standards, such as Secure Socket Layers ("SSL") technology, to help safeguard against such occurrences.

In certain areas, the information passed between the browser and our system is encrypted with SSL technology to create a protected connection between the user and our website to ensure confidentiality. In the event that a breach into the VBS security systems occurs and there is a possibility an unauthorized person acquires personal information, VBS will notify the breached person or groups of such a breach under applicable law and will pursue all available and reasonable measures to recover the data.

Access to Personal Information
VBS does not share or sell personally identifiable information submitted through this website to third parties unless to assist us in connection with services you request, subject to disclosure in response to judicial or other governmental subpoenas, warrants, demands and court orders served on VBS in accordance with their terms, to protect our rights or property, to enforce compliance with our Privacy Policy and terms of use, to protect our website and other important information, prevent harm to you or others, and/or otherwise comply with an applicable law. This information may be disclosed and transferred if VBS or its business is sold or offered for sale or another company or person(s), if a petition for relief under the United States Bankruptcy Laws is filed by or against VBS, or if VBS becomes subject to an order of appointment of a trustee or receiver.
