The words “User,” “You” and “Your” as used in this Agreement refer to all persons who access or use the Products and/or Services.

VC recognizes that Your privacy and the protection of Your Personal Information is important to you, and therefore, has adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy describes VC’s privacy practices and how VC treats the Personal Information that it collects from You when You use VC, including any Personal Information You provide when You conduct business with VC on or through VC or use VC’s Products and/or Services that are provided on or through VC.   


For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” is information that (i) You provide to VC and (ii) personally identifies You.  Personal Information includes Your name, email and postal address, telephone number, credit/debit card number and other data that can be used to personally identify or contact You.




VC may obtain, collect, retain, store or otherwise maintain Your Personal Information from the following sources:

VC restricts access to Personal Information to those retail, marketing and promotional partners, service providers, contractors and agents and each party’s respective employees, who need to access Personal Information for the purposes specified above.  These entities and individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination, if they fail to meet these obligations. 



Except as otherwise set forth herein, VC does not share Your Personal Information with other third parties without Your consent, except when We believe that it is reasonably necessary to do so in order to comply with a subpoena or other judicial order or process, as otherwise required by law or in order to enforce or remedy a violation(s) of VC’s Terms of Use.  In such circumstances, Your Personal Information may also be disclosed to VC’s attorneys.

If VC desires to use Your Personal Information for any purpose other than those described in this Privacy Policy, VC will inform you prior to such use and offer You an effective way to opt out of the use of Personal Information for those other purposes.  If You opt out or otherwise decline to submit Personal Information in response to such a request, VC may not be able to provide to You some or all of the VC Products and Services or some or all of the features available on the Website.    




VC may collect or purchase information from third parties regarding persons who provided such information to those third parties.  Information provided by the third party may include, but not limited to, individual names, email and postal addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates, genders, and any other information provided by the Third Party.  VC uses commercially reasonable best efforts to ensure that (i) the third party possesses the right to transfer the information to VC and (ii) VC has received the right to communicate with the persons who provided the information.

VC processes Personal Information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  VC also takes commercially reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Information We process is accurate, complete, and current, but We depend on You and our other users to update or correct their Personal Information whenever necessary.




You may opt out or unsubscribe using the tools provided by VC in accordance with the provisions of VC’s Terms of Use.  If You terminate Your Registration or modify the Personal Information that You provide in connection with Your Registration, VC reserves the right to retain archival copies of Your information.  VC will only use Your archived information for the purposes of detecting and avoiding fraud and will share such information with third parties only when We believe that it is reasonably necessary to do so in order to comply with a subpoena or other judicial order or process, as otherwise required by law or in order to enforce VC’s Terms of Use..   


When you use VC, VC makes good faith efforts to provide you with access to your Personal Information.  Where applicable, VC asks individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and VC may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required.  In any case, where VC provides information access and correction, VC provides this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
