VCO Privacy Policy

Registration Data and certain other information about you is subject to our Privacy Policy. VCO is committed to protecting the privacy and security of all individuals who use our site. Our goal is to provide an Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. In order to achieve this goal, from time to time we may collect information during your visits. This Privacy Policy is designed to help you learn more about the personal information we collect, who we might share it with, and how we protect it.

Note: Additional terms and conditions, if any, regarding the collection and use of your information may also be provided to you before you sign up for a particular VCO service - privacy policies for those services will be linked from those particular areas or sections of our site.

What Information Do We Collect?

VCO collects personal information in three ways - through information provided directly from our users, from information collected through web server logs and through cookies.

Information Supplied by Our Users

VCO collects personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work telephone number. VCO may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, and interests. VCO does not collect any of this unique information about you except when you specifically and knowingly provide such information.

Information from Web Server Logs

VCO records and saves information about you from our web server logs such as your Internet [Protocol] (IP) address, the time day you visited and your browser type. This information is used to verify our records and to provide better services to you.

Information from Cookies

In order to offer and provide you with personalized services, VCO may use "cookies" to store and help track your information. A cookie is a piece of data that identifies you as a unique user. VCO will not disclose its cookies to third parties except as required by a valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order.

Note: Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies. You should be aware though that some parts of the VCO Web sites and services may not function properly if you refuse cookies.

Links to Other Sites

VCO encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to visit from VCO so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. VCO is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the VCO site.

Use or Disclosure of your Personal Information to Third Parties and Co-Brand Partners

VCO will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about you to any third party without first receiving your permission. VCO may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on VCO, protect and defend the rights or property of VCO or act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of VCO or members of the public.

Certain VCO services and content may be co-branded with another company. If you register for or use such services, both VCO and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services. In such cases, either a joint privacy statement or a link to the other company's privacy statement will be provided, which will provide you with information about how the other company will use the information and how you can contact the other company with requests to access the information or other inquiries.

Protecting Your Information

While VCO is committed to protecting your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords you set up and/or any account information.

Correcting Inaccuracies

When you sign up for VCO's products and service, such as our free newsletter, we may send you an e-mail confirming your new account. The message will be sent to the address that you supplied to us at the time of sign-up.

We welcome your comments or questions. Send us an email to
