In our Information Request Form and Online Registration form, we require you to provide us with your full name, full street address, city, state, zip code, phone number, email address and possibly your credit card number and expiration date.
If you are registering using an email account at a free email service, we require additional information, including billing address, credit card number and expiration date. We use this credit card information to verify your name, address, and other information.
In the course of using our site, we automatically track certain information about you. This information includes the URL that you came from (whether that URL is on our site or not), which URL you go to next (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, your city or country, your company (or ISP) and your IP address. Most internet sites today automatically collect this information to help them better evaluate the effectiveness of their site in reaching their intended audience.
If you choose to establish a credit account with us, we collect some additional information, including billing address, credit card number and credit card expiration date and tracking information from checks or money orders.
If you send us personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the site, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
Internally we use personally identifiable information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our site’s content and layout. This information allow us to improve our site and better tailor it to meet our users’ needs.
We may also use personally identifiable information about you to deliver information to you that, in some cases, are targeted to your interests, such as banner advertising or e-mail circulars.
From time to time we will use your email address and, in rare situations your mailing address or phone number, to contact you regarding administrative notices.
Vortices Design does not sell, rent, share or distribute any personally identifiable information of any kind about you to any third party. All information that we collect about you or your company is held confidentially within Vortices Design. Any company that Vortices Design forms a partnership with must agree to this non-disclosure of information before we will enter into a formal alliance with them, or in the event that they cannot by law agree to our privacy contract, then we will not allow them access to your personal information.
If you have received a password from Vortices Design you should not disclose it or share it with any third parties. If, despite the foregoing, you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personally identifiable information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately contact us to have your password changed.
You may review and change much of your personally identifiable information at Vortices Design, including:
Your email address, company name, address, city, state, zip code, country, primary phone number, secondary phone number, fax number, password, credit card number and expiration date.
Upon termination of the use of our services we will remove your credit card number and credit card expiration date from our databases. However, if you have a free email service account, you may not request to remove your credit card from file unless you wish to terminate your account or place a different credit card on file. Such information will be removed after one billing cycle of your last transaction with Vortices Design, unless your account is in dispute, in which case your information will be kept on file until the dispute is resolved.
We will retain in our files information you have requested to remove in some circumstances, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our user agreement. Further, such prior information is never completely removed from our databases due to technical constraints and the fact that we back up our systems daily. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.
You should promptly update your information if it changes.
Vortices Design uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet. Please use caution, common sense and good judgement before you give out personal identifiable information to us, or any other internet site.
