VTI is sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet and is committed to protecting your privacy. We believe it is important you know how we treat the information about you we receive on the Internet. In general, you can visit VTI on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our Web servers collect only the times of page views, IP Addresses, and web browser types of site visitors. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. VTI uses this information to measure the use of our site and to improve the content of our site.
There are times, however, when we may need information from you, such as your name, address, or email address. When information is needed, we will try to let you know at the time of collection, how we will use this personal information. Usually, the personal information we collect is used only by us to respond to your inquiry, process an order or allow you to access specific account information. We do not make the information gathered from our online services available to any third party. If we use the email address you provided to send you any automated mailings about products or services we hope will be of interest to you, you will be given the opportunity to opt out of any future similar mailings.
If you register with VTI's Technical Services online, which allows you to request instant Quotes and other detailed product information, we may use the information gathered to provide you with custom information about VTI's offering in support of your business needs. A technology called cookies may be used to provide you with tailored information, and to identify you as a logged-in user of the application. A cookie is a tiny element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive so we can recognize you when you return. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. The information gathered will also be used to identify you to VTI site administrators and to customize any automatically-generated Quotations or other documents for your specific needs.
To sign up for VTI Technical Services, a password is required in order to positively identify you during repeat vists as the person who originally set up the Technical Services account. This password will be stored in our online database in an encrypted form and thus can not be read or decrypted by site administrators or anyone else.
