Privacy Policy

Human readable summary:

You should read this whole document. However, we like having plain language which summarizes some of the important terms:

We know doing business requires trust and we want you to trust us. Therefore, we wish to be totally upfront with you regarding the information we collect about you and how we will keep it safe.

When you visit our website, your computer sends non-identifying information to our server so that it knows how to serve you (for example, it will tell us what variety of web browser you use, what page you want to view, and what language you prefer your web pages to be written in). We make absolutely no attempt to link this data to you personally, but use aggregate numbers (for example, “25% of our visits last month were from people using Macs”) to optimize our operations.

When you send us an email or use the contact us form, we take note of your email address for the purpose of replying to that email, if what you have to say requires a reply.

We don’t spam. You can give your email address to us for various purposes, for example to sign up for our newsletter. We’ll tell you how much email you can expect to get and for what purpose. We won’t sell or disclose your email address under any circumstances. You can ask us to stop sending you email at any time.

We receive reports from our advertising partners (Google, Yahoo, etc) about how many people click on our advertisements, and how many of these people eventually go on to our site. We don’t tie these numbers to any customers in particular, but rather use them to improve our advertising campaigns.

We track which web pages are of most interest to our best customers. For example, we can tell whether most people who go on to VGS Global blog are more insterest in tutorials or general news. We make no attempt to discern this about any particular visitor or customer. If you would rather we not track which pages you are viewing anonymously, you can turn off cookies (please see your browser documentation for how to do this).

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy. This privacy policy describes VGS Global’s current policies and practices with regard to personal data collected by VGS Global through its websites, (hereinafter referred to collectively as “VGS Global’s websites”). This privacy policy is independent from VGS Global’s offline personal data collection practices. The term “personal data” refers to personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, birth date, e-mail address or mailing address, and any other information that is identified with you personally.

Notification of Changes to This Policy. VGS Global is continually improving and adding new functionality and features to its websites and improving and adding to our existing products, services, and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law, and the changing nature of technology, VGS Global’s data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, VGS Global will post the changes on our websites to notify you of the changes. We encourage you to check this page frequently. This policy was last updated on 5th September 2006.

Personal Data Collected Through Other than cookies, as described below, the only personal data VGS Global currently collects through its websites is the information you voluntarily give us when you use our sites.

For example, you may use this site to contact VGS Global with questions and comments. When you fill out a form on our websites, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company’s name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other personal information. If you do not wish to fill out all of the information on the form you are not required to do so. Most of our registration forms require only your name and e-mail address. When you submit information to us through, you will receive a confirmation e-mail if you enter a valid e-mail address. When you use our websites to search for information on our products, support procedures or documentations, you are not providing us with any personal information. We offer the search features as a service to you. VGS Global does not collect or retain any identifying information about you when you use the search features.

Use of Personal Data Collected Through VGS Global uses the personal data information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. VGS Global 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 products and services. VGS Global and our affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or 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. Similarly, we may provide “subscription” e-mail services, either directly or through affiliates, which enable you to receive current news about VGS Global products or related medical conditions and procedures. For all such services, we will provide an opportunity to “opt-out” of, or cancel, the subscription. Please see the “unsolicited ideas” heading under Terms and Conditions for more information about our use of the communications we receive through VGS Global websites.

Anonymous Data Collected Through In addition to the information you provide when you use our websites, VGS Global uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our websites. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our websites, 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 sites (for example, if they connected to a VGS Global website by clicking on one of our banner ads).

This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our sites. VGS Global 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. A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not damage your computer and they cannot be used to discover the identity of a user. 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 and whether you are required to accept the cookie to view certain content. VGS Global may use cookies to “persist” a user session — that is, to maintain connection with a user as he or she moves through an application or series of web pages. The purpose of cookies in this context is to remember user inputs. For example, a “shopping cart” application records purchases up until the user reaches checkout. Personalization features also use cookies to identify groups of users and deliver appropriate content and services.

We use Google AdWords re-marketing technology to market our sites across the Internet. We place a cookie on your browser, and then a 3rd party (Google) reads these cookies and may serve an ad on a 3rd party site, after you have visited our website. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows a customer to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, you should note that cookies may be necessary to provide customers with certain features (e.g., customised delivery of information) available on this web site. You may opt out of this ad serving on Google’s opt out page HERE.

Disclosure of Your Personal Data. VGS Global will not share any or all of the personal data collected through this website with our affiliates or third-party vendors, who use this data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

While no method of data transmission is guaranteed against unlawful third party interception or other misuse, VGS Global uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure protection of your data including industry-standard encryption and offline security methods in our physical facilities.

Link to Other Sites. This privacy policy applies only to VGS Global’s websites. VGS Global and our affiliates operate other websites for different purposes and in different countries where different laws may apply. If you visit a VGS Global website, please take a moment to review the privacy policy posted on that site to learn what personal data may be collected through that site and how it is processed.

VGS Global’s websites contain hyperlinks to websites that are not operated by VGS Global or one of our affiliates. These hyperlinks are provided for your reference and convenience only and do not imply any endorsement of the activities of these third-party websites or any association with their operators. VGS Global does not control these websites and is not responsible for their data practices. We urge you to review the privacy policy posted on any site you visit before using the site or providing any personal data about yourself.
