This Policy sets out how VSN uses the information that you provide to us or that we otherwise collect through your use of the Services. VSN may update this Policy over time. VSN will notify you of these changes by updating this Policy, so please check it from time to time in order to ensure that you are aware of any changes and of the latest Policy. If VSN considers changes to the Policy to be material, VSN will place a notice for a period of time. The most current Policy on the Site supersedes all previous versions and will be available on www.vsnmobil.com/privacy-policy. Please read this Policy carefully and see the end of this Policy for the date it was last updated. By using or participating in any Services or visiting any Sites, and/or providing VSN with your information, you consent to the use, collection, transfer, storage and processing of your information outside of your jurisdiction of residence, consistent with this Policy. YOUR USE OR CONTINUED USE OF ANY OF THE SERVICES IS CONDITIONED UPON AND INDICATES THAT YOU HAVE READ, ACCEPTED AND AGREED TO THE POLICY AND TO VSN’S PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES STATED BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICES AND/OR VISIT ANY OF THE SITES.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU?
In general, you can visit many of the Sites or use many of the Services without providing VSN with any of your personal information. However, some of the Services may require you to provide VSN with your personal information.
Personally Identifiable Information
When you register with us or buy products through the Site, call us or use the Services, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Information"). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, your shipping and billing address, your telephone number, your company name, your credit card information (in order to process your purchases), and your email address. You can choose whether or not to provide this information, but you may not be able to access or use all the Services or purchase products. We use your Personal Information mainly to provide you with service, assistance and administer your inquiries.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information is technical or demographic information; such as your age, location, gender or interests. Non-personally Identifiable Information does NOT identify you personally. We may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information about the Services that you use and the way you use them, such as when you view and interact with content offered through a Service or one of our Sites. For example, when you visit the Sites or view HTML e-mail, our web servers automatically collect usage information. Such usage information includes information about the way our visitors use and navigate our Sites. The Non-Personally Identifiable Information we collect may include:
- Device information (e.g., your device model number, IMEI number, serial number or other unique device identifiers, MAC address, IP address, operating system version, device settings, etc.);
- Anonymous information that is automatically collected which alone cannot be used to identify you when you connect to or use the Services.
- Log information (e.g., details of how you use the Services, such as time and duration of your use of the Service, browser cookies, web cookies, flash cookies and web beacons, etc.);
- Internet Protocol (IP) address — Your IP address is a number that lets computers or servers connected to the Internet know where to send you data — such as the webpages you view;
- Cookies, which are small text files that may be used to collect information about one’s activities on the Sites. For example, when someone visits a page within the Sites, a cookie is placed on the user’s machine (if the user accepts cookies) or is read if the user has visited the Sites previously. Cookies may also be used to track users across the internet. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users to our Sites. Additionally, some of the cookies we use may be flash cookies or Adobe cookies. While they are harmless, they may contain Non-Personally Identifiable Information and depending on your browser these cookies may not normally be deleted when your cookies are deleted. Please check your browser to determine where these types of cookies are stored and how they may be deleted;
- Web Beacons (also known as "clear gifs," "web bugs" or "pixel tags"), which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to allow VSN to count users who have visited certain pages of the Sites and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when an email has been opened. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s device, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages;
- Do-not-track — Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Although web browsers incorporate and activate this functionality in different ways, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted. This technology is evolving and there is no systematic standard followed by web site operators. At the present time, VSN does not honor any “do-not-track” signal sent by browsers. We will continue to monitor the development in this area and may revisit once more concrete standards are established.
WE COLLECT NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION FROM ALL VISITORS TO OUR SITES. IF YOU DO NOT WANT VSN TO HAVE ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION, PLEASE DO NOT VISIT OUR SITES.
Safeguarding the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without parental consent. If we become aware that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has provided us with any Personal Information, we will use reasonable efforts to delete such Personal Data as soon as possible.

What do we do to keep your information secure?
Please note that web communication is not 100% secure and as such we cannot warrant that the information you communicate will get to us without interruption. Our goal at VSN is to protect your Personal Information and employ reasonable technologies to help keep the Personal Information you provide on the Sites secure. We also maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of the Personal Information you provide on the Sites.
VSN may offer you the ability to connect or link your social networking accounts, such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter ["Social Site(s)"], with the Site.

Any personal data we collect from these Social Sites will be used according to this Policy. Your personal data on the Social Sites may be displayed on the Site while you are connected to the Site. It is your choice whether to link or use any such Social Sites, and you understand that in some instances such Social Sites may request permission to access and publish information about you or your friends that may be available to VSN.

If you are visiting from other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring your Personal Information to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as those countries and by providing such information you consent to:
- The use of your Personal Information for the uses identified above in accordance with this Policy; and
- The transfer of your Personal Information to the United States as indicated above.
