Thank you for visiting the VerticalSearchWorks Web site (the “VSW Web site”). The protection of privacy is important to VSW Corporation, its affiliates and subsidiaries (“VSW”). To better protect privacy, VSW provides this notice explaining VSW’s online information practices and the choices a User can make about the way information is collected and used at this site.
What information does the VSW Web site collect?
The primary purpose of the VSW Web site is to provide VSW’s customers, prospective customers, partners, stockholders, the investment community and the public (“Users”) information about VSW. From time to time, VSW may invite Users to subscribe to an email service, order products, enter contests, and vote in polls or otherwise express an opinion, among other things. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected at these pages include: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, and information about User interests in and use of various products, programs, and services. The VSW Web site also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when Users visit many of VSW’s Web site pages such as the type of browser a User is using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system a User is using, (e.g., Windows ’95 or Mac OS) and the domain name of a User’s Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink).
How does the VSW Web site use the information?
Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors
The VSW Web site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than VSW’s. Visitors should consult the other sites’ privacy policies because the VSW Web site has no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties. The VSW Web site may sometimes offer content (e.g., contests, sweepstakes, or promotions) that is sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties. By virtue of these relationships, the third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the site activity. VSW has no control over these third parties’ use of this information.
The VSW Web site has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under VSW’s control. Any time the VSW Web site asks for a credit card number, the VSW Web site transmits that credit card number in an encrypted format. The VSW Web site uses industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure. As a result, while the VSW Web site strives to protect User personal information, VSW cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information Users transmit to or from VSW’s online products or services, and Users do so at their own risk. Once the VSW Web site receives a User transmission, VSW will make reasonable efforts to ensure its security on VSW’s systems.
The VerticalSearchWorks Web site is a general audience site. It is not intended for, nor does VSW direct any of its content to, children under thirteen (13) years of age.
VSW gives a User the following options for removing User information from VSW’s database in order to stop receiving future communications from VSW.
