Privacy & Security Information
Vantix Systems will only use the information you provide for the purposes stated here. We will not sell or otherwise provide this information in any form to any third party unless expressly authorized by you. Our goal is to assist you as the user in obtaining the information and services you request through our web site in the most efficient manner possible.
Vantix Systems may require users to submit registration forms for various services. During registration, a user must submit their contact information. This information is only used to allow us to contact you as the user respecting the services you are interested in. We do not collect demographic information or unique identifiers.
A ‘cookie’ is simple data stored on a user’s computer that provides certain information about the user. Where our web site uses a ‘cookie’ it allows us to provide your computer with information tailored to your needs and to track interests to enhance the efficient use of our web site. For example, by setting a cookie on our web site, you should not have to submit your contact information more than once. Usage of a cookie by our web site does not provide us with any personally identifiable information. Once you close your browser, the cookie simply terminates. You are free to decline usage of a cookie, but this may limit your usage in some areas of our web site.
Vantix Systems may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer its web site, track user interests and preferences and gather broad demographic information for internal statistical use. These IP addresses would be collected in log files that would be maintained securely through our web site. IP addresses are not in any way linked to personally identifiable information that may be provided during a registration procedure.
This web site contains third party hyperlinks to other web sites. Once you leave this site by hyperlink, our policy no longer applies to information collected by other web sites. Vantix Systems strongly encourages the review of privacy statements at other web sites before providing any personally identifiable information.
Vantix Systems takes every precaution to protect user information at all times. Where a registration or order form prompts a user to enter personal/sensitive information, this information is encrypted using trusted commercially available software. While transmitting secure information, such as through an online order form, the ‘lock’ icon on the bottom of the web browser's screen indicates that the information is being transmitted over a secure connection.
In addition to using encryption software for sensitive transmissions while online, Vantix Systems takes every reasonable precaution to protect your information offline. All user information is restricted in our offices. Only Vantix Systems employees who need the information to perform specific user-related services are allowed access to the information. Vantix Systems has established security and privacy practices with its employees to best protect your information. The servers where such information is stored are kept in a secure locked location.

Information will only be used by Vantix Systems in accordance with the Privacy and Security Statement in effect at the time the data was gathered. Vantix Systems may, from time to time, make changes to this Privacy and Security Statement by posting these changes on our web site. If Vantix Systems desires to use the information in a manner not contemplated by the Privacy and Security Statement under which it was collected, it will only do so if consent has been obtained which you are under no obligation to provide.
