This statement sets out ValuePRO’s policies relating to how your personal information is dealt with.
ValuePRO recognises that your privacy is very important to you and that you have a right to control your personal information. We know that providing personal information is an act of trust and we take that seriously. Unless you give us explicit consent to act otherwise, the following policies will govern how ValuePRO handles your personal information and safeguards your privacy.
- VALUEPRO’S COMMITMENT
- COLLECTING INFORMATION
ValuePRO will not collect or monitor any personal information about you without your consent unless we believe it is necessary:
(i) because it is required by law;
(ii) to provide you with a service which you have requested;
(iii) to implement our terms of service;
(iv) to protect the rights or property of ValuePRO, any ValuePRO user, or any member of the public; or
(v) to lessen a serious threat to a person’s health or safety.
(b) You may provide ValuePRO with information directly, such as through subscribing to email lists or identifying yourself when using ValuePRO’s services. The amount of information we collect about you depends on how you use the ValuePRO website or services. The only personal information we collect is what you tell us about yourself, for example, by subscribing to e-mail newsletters.
(d) Any further collection of your personal information than that explained above will only occur with consent from you. ValuePRO only collects information from your use of our site and not from other organisations.
(c) As explained above, cookies do not of themselves personally identify users. The cookies simply operate as a unique identifier which helps us to know what our customers find interesting and useful on our website, almost like a continuing questionnaire. We do not link this information back to other information that you have provided to use.
