Personal Data Collected Through VMARK.net
The only personal data VMARK Associates currently collects through this website is the information you send to us when you contact VMARK Associates with your questions and comments through the Contact Us page on this website. When you send us an e-mail through that page, we ask you for your name and other contact information, including, for example, your company's name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company.

Use of Personal Data Collected Through VMARK.net
VMARK Associates does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. VMARK Associates uses the information you provide to respond to your e-mail, answer your question or resolve your problem. VMARK Associates and our affiliates also use this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our services. VMARK Associates and our affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products and services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future communications.

Anonymous Data Collected Through VMARK.net
In addition to the information you provide when you use our website, VMARK Associates uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our website. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our website, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which Web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our site (for example, if they connected to VMARK.net by clicking on a banner ad). This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our website. VMARK Associates and our affiliates use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.

Cookies
In order to collect the anonymous data described in the preceding paragraph, VMARK Associates may use temporary "cookies" that collect the first level domain name of the user (for example, if your e-mail address is "bob@xyz.com," the cookie collects the "xyz.com" portion of your e-mail address) and the date and time you accessed this website. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to discover the identity of the user. A cookie is a small piece of information which is sent to your browser and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies keep track of non-personal information such as the URL that you came from and go to next, your navigation through the website (for example, the advertisements that you click on), the browser and operating system that you use, and your IP address. Cookies do not damage your computer. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This enables you to decide if you want to accept it or not. At the present time, VMARK Associates only uses temporary or "session" cookies. These cookies expire when your browser window is closed.

Disclosure of Your Personal Data
VMARK Associates may share some or all of the personal data collected through this Web site with our affiliates, who will only use this data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Both VMARK Associates and our affiliates may share personal data collected through this website with third-party vendors who act for or on behalf of VMARK Associates or our affiliates, for example, companies that provide support services to us, including data processing services, or that help us market our products and services. These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose. In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which VMARK Associates or our affiliates may share or transfer the personal data in our databases, for example, to comply with a legal requirement, to enforce the Terms and Conditions governing the use of this website, to protect your interests, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event.

VMARK Associates does not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under thirteen, please do not give us any personal data. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of thirteen has provided personal data to VMARK Associates, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.
