Privacy Information – Visual Software Systems
Use of Our Website
When you visit our website we collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. We collect this information to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site and we do so in a way which does not identify anyone.
Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. There are two main types: ‘session’ and ‘persistent’. ‘Session’ cookies are temporary and only remain in the cookie file of your computer until you close your browser, when they are deleted. ‘Persistent’ cookies are stored permanently on your computer until they either expire or are deleted. Visual Software Systems uses both types.
Cookies are widely used to enable the collection of information, to enable navigation around a website or to make websites work, or work more efficiently. To enhance a user’s experience cookies can also be used to remember information so you do not have to retype it each time you visit a website, for example your name and email address, or to remember preferences like the language in which the website is displayed.
Most web browsers are usually set up to accept cookies. You can delete cookies and you can usually adjust your browser so that your computer rejects cookies, but please note if you disable cookies you will not be able to register or log on to secure areas on our site. Information about cookies and how to reject them can be found from the Information Advertising Bureau at www.allaboutcookies.org
Security of Data
If you register to use online, password protected portions of our website we will ask you to provide us with certain up to date information about you, which we will handle securely. We maintain strict security standards and procedures intended to prevent unauthorized access to your data and we use technologies such as data encryption and firewalls to achieve this.
The security of your payment information is important to us. If you make payments on our website, you will be asked for credit card or PayPal information. We use a payment gateway – a site specifically secured to process this information – for these payments, for which we pay a fee. Your personal credit card information is never stored or available anywhere on our website.
