Like most website operators, VIP Home Solutions collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. VIP Home Solutions's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how VIP Home Solutions's visitors use its website. From time to time, VIP Home Solutions may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
VIP Home Solutions also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. VIP Home Solutions does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to VIP Home Solutions's websites (http://www.vip-homesolutions.com) choose to interact with VIP Home Solutions in ways that require VIP Home Solutions to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that VIP Home Solutions gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, VIP Home Solutions collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with VIP Home Solutions. VIP Home Solutions does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
VIP Home Solutions may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, VIP Home Solutions may reveal how many downloads a particular version got, or say which plugins are most popular based on checks from api.VIP Home Solutions, a web service used by WordPress installations to check for new versions of WordPress and plugins. However, VIP Home Solutions does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
VIP Home Solutions discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on VIP Home Solutions's behalf or to provide services available at VIP Home Solutions's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using VIP Home Solutions's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. VIP Home Solutions will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, VIP Home Solutions discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when VIP Home Solutions believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of VIP Home Solutions, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a VIP Home Solutions website and have supplied your email address, VIP Home Solutions may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with VIP Home Solutions and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. VIP Home Solutions takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
