Privacy of Children
Vision Communications encourages parents and guardians to be aware of and participate in their children’s online activities. We strictly adhere to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and will not knowingly register or otherwise collect personally identifiable information from any child under the age of 13 without the prior verifiable consent of that person’s parent or guardian.
What Information is Collected
Vision Communications may collect two types of information about you: personal information (such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) and aggregate information that is anonymous (such as your IP address—a number used to identify your computer when you are on the Internet—or the type of browser you are using).
Personally Identifiable Information: You may be required to register or otherwise voluntarily provide personal information to have access to some features of the Site, such as contests. You always may choose not to provide the personal information, but this may lead to decreased functionality of the Site for you and our inability to provide you with certain products or services. We also may request you to voluntarily provide personal information that is not required to access features of our site. This information enables Vision Communicationsto make general improvements to the Site and better serve your specific interests.
What We Will and Will Not Do With the Information You Provide
Vision Communications uses information generally to compile statistical data, keep in contact with users and provide them with a better interactive experience. We may use your information specifically for the following purposes: to provide easy access every time you return to the site without requiring re-entry of registration information; to keep you informed about products and services in which you may have interest; to complete business transactions; to contact you as part of a promotion; to allow you to make a posting on the Site; to administer individual accounts; to provide customer support; to meet legal requirements; to provide Internet security; and/or to analyze the collected information. Also, in the event that we are involved in a sale of a substantial portion of our business assets, customer information may be among the transferred assets.
Vision Communications works closely with our business partners and certain other third parties who may perform functions on our behalf, such as fulfilling orders, providing promotional materials to our users, sending e-mail, managing data, processing credit card payments or providing customer service. They have access to your personal information only to the extent necessary to perform their functions and may not use it for any other purpose. Further, these business partners and other third parties may from time to time wish to extend special offers to you on their own behalf. We may use your personal information to assist our business partners in offering you these products, services and information and may act as an intermediary (for instance, sending you e-mail on their behalf).
How to review or request changes to the information we collect about you
Once you have provided information to receive email from us, you can “opt out” of the email after receiving it. In each email, we provide a link that will remove you from our mailing list.
