Personal and Non-Personally Identifiable Information
When using the Website, you may choose to provide VB with certain Personally Identifiable Information about yourself ("Personally Identifiable Information"). Personally Identifiable Information can include your name and email address. In addition, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information, such as IP host address, pages viewed, statistics, browser type, traffic to and from the Website, standard web log information and other data. VB may aggregate any such information collected in a manner which does not identify you or any individual ("Aggregate Information").
Unless disclosed otherwise at the time of collection, we do not share any Personally Identifiable Information you submit through the Website with any unaffiliated third party, unless it is necessary to respond to your inquiry, or to comply with applicable law. We may use Aggregate Information to (i) improve and enhance your experience on the Website, (ii) customize, measure and further develop our Website and/or services, (iii) use for our research activities, and (iv) tell you about our services and/or service updates. For example, we may share Aggregate Information with unaffiliated third parties, such as business partners, in an aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the shared information will not contain nor be linked to any Personally Identifiable Information. We will not sell or share your personally identifiable Information to any third party not affiliated with VB without your consent, except we may do so without your consent in connection with the sale or merger of VB or the division responsible for such services. Please note that we reserve the right to access and/or disclose Personally Identifiable Information and non-personal information we gather to respond to legal requirements imposed by courts or administrative agencies (for example, by court order or subpoena), and to the extent required to permit us to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, the Website rules or policies, the rights of third parties, or to investigate any suspected conduct which we deem improper.
The security of your Personally Identifiable Information is very important to us. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. The information we collect is stored on our servers located in the Canada and United States. While we treat Personally Identifiable Information as data that must be protected, and use tools (for example, encryption, passwords, physical security, etc) to safeguard such Personally Identifiable Information, we cannot state with absolute certainty that communications between you and VB or information stored on the Website or our servers will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers. Please be aware that the possibility exists that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or Personally Identifiable Information. Therefore, by using the Website, you acknowledge that the potential for unauthorized access exists, that you agree to assume this risk.
Protection for children
We have no intention of collecting Personally Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. When we become aware that Personally Identifiable Information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child’s parent or guardian's consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

However, if at any time in the future we plan to use Personally Identifiable Information in a way that differs from this policy, we will post such changes here and provide you the opportunity to opt-out of such differing uses. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of any changes to this policy means you accept such changes. We give you the option to remove your Personally Identifiable Information from any lists that we maintain of users.
