The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to help protect your personal information. For instance, when you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

4.5 Data Retention. We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

4.6 Access. If you are a registered user, you may access certain information associated with your Account by logging into our Services or emailing [email protected].

To protect your privacy and security, we may also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before updating or removing your information. The information you provide us may be archived or stored periodically by us according to backup processes conducted in the ordinary course of business for disaster recovery purposes. Your ability to access and correct your information may be temporarily limited where access and correction could:

  • Inhibit Vault's ability to comply with a legal obligation;

  • Inhibit Vault's ability to investigate, make or defend legal claims;

  • Result in disclosure of personal information about a third party; or

  • Result in breach of a contract or disclosure of trade secrets or other proprietary business information belonging to Vault or a third party.

Cookies: You can accept or decline cookies. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser settings to decline cookies. Please be aware that our websites are optimally designed to operate with cookies enabled in your internet browser. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of our sites and services that depend on cookies.

4.9 Children’s Privacy. We do not intend to solicit or collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18, you should not use or enter information on this site, including without limitation, any Interactive Areas of the site.

4.10 International Data Transfers. Vault is a global business. We may transfer personal information to countries other than the country in which the data was originally collected. These countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer your personal information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Privacy Shield. Personal information collected by Vault may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Vault or its affiliates, subsidiaries, contractors or agents maintain facilities, and by using our Services, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. Vault has been certified under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks (individually and collectively, "Privacy Shield"). Vault complies with the Privacy Shield as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, transfer and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. Vault has certified that it adheres to the Privacy Shield based on Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, and Recourse, Enforcement and Liability. To learn more about the Privacy Shield programs, and to view our certification pages, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/. If you would like to exercise any of your data protection rights (including the right to have your personal information disclosed or deleted), please contact us using the "Contact Information" below.

On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) invalidated Privacy Shield. Unless and until Privacy Shield or a successor law or regulation is approved, Vault relies on explicit informed consent for the transfer of personal data from the European Union to the United States.

4.11. DMA. If you have questions or concerns regarding this privacy policy or our Privacy Shield compliance, you should first contact Vault (using the Contact Information below). If you do not receive acknowledgement of your inquiry, or your inquiry has not been satisfactorily addressed within 45 days, you should then contact DMA by going to https://thedma.org/resources/consumer-resources/privacyshield-consumers/. DMA provides an independent third-party dispute resolution body based in the United States. DMA has committed to respond to complaints and to provide appropriate recourse at no cost to you. If neither Vault nor DMA resolves your complaint, you may have the possibility to engage in binding arbitration through the Privacy Shield Panel.

4.12. Changes to this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to change the terms of this privacy policy at any time. When we make changes, we will revise the "last updated" date at the top of the policy. If there are material changes to this statement or in how Vault will use your personal information, we will notify you by prominently posting a notice of such changes here or on our home page, or by sending you an email. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy whenever you visit one of our sites. Continued use of the Services will be deemed consent to the revised Privacy Policy.
