Section 2.0 Notice Concerning Children
PLEASE NOTE: We are a general audience site, and do not direct any of our content specifically at children under 13 years of age. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a VGI Web site visitor is under age 13, we will promptly delete any personal information regarding that visitor.
Section 3.0 Information Collection Practices
(a) What Basic Information Does VGI Collect?
You can visit the Web site to read information about our company, products, and services without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. In operating the Web site, VGI includes optional information request forms such as a “Download a Sample File”, “Watch 1GAP Demo” or “Preview Show Me the Money 3 chapter” form that request your name, company name, phone number and email address. We use this information to send business growth tips and promote our products or services. This information is provided by you on a voluntary basis only and is not required by us in order for you to use and enjoy the Web site. VGI uses the information that we collect on the Web site to contact you to further discuss your interest in our products and services, and to send information regarding our company, such as marketing promotions or Journal of Value Growth. This information may also be used to improve the services we provide you. We use this information to improve the way that we provide our services to our clients, to relay administrative information, and to verify login information. When you make a purchase, we gather credit card and contact information necessary to complete the credit card transaction. The information is collected and stored in a manner that is appropriate for the nature of the data that we collect, and the need to fulfill your request.
(b) Automatic Collection
Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet), domain names, and the activity of the visitor’s browser when the visitor is viewing the Web site; the site path of visitors; the time visitors come to the Web site and length of visit. No personal information about you is revealed in the process. The Web site may also gather anonymous traffic data that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer and VGI reserves the right to publish such anonymous, aggregate summary information regarding its visitors for promotional purposes.
You may opt out of receiving future mailings; see the Updating and Choice/Opt-Out section below. When you receive an updated profile form, that information comes from our database.
Section 4.0 Security and Privacy
VGI’s Web site uses security measures to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We store the information in a database in a secure environment at our data hosting service provider, Rochen.com, application service providers infusionsoft.com and lotuslive.com.
Section 5.0 VGI takes care to reinforce the importance of our web site visitors’ security and privacy among our employees.
VGI is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any other web sites to which we link. We encourage our visitors to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that they visit.
