Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

Information we collect about how you navigate our Websites
We also use commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons, to collect information as you navigate our Websites (“Web Site Navigational Information”). Web Site Navigational Information includes standard information from your web browser (such as browser type and browser language), your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the actions you take on our Websites (such as the web pages viewed and the links clicked). We use Web Site Navigational Information to operate and improve our Websites. We may also use Web Site Navigational Information in combination with visitor information to provide personalized information about VM2020.
We may use “cookies” to make interactions with our Websites easier and more meaningful. When you visit our Websites, our servers may send a “cookie” to your computer. Standing alone, “cookies” do not personally identify you; they merely recognize the device you are using to connect with the Websites by means of your web browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to us, either by responding to a promotional offer, creating a login, or filling out a web form (such as a “Contact Me” or a “14 Day Free Trial” web form), you remain anonymous to us.
There are two types of “cookies”: session-based and persistent-based. Session “cookies” exist only during one session; that is, they are erased from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent “cookies” remain stored on your computer after you close your browser or turn off your computer.
We use persistent “cookies” that only we can read and use to identify devices (and visitors) that have previously visited our Websites. We may use information from session and persistent “cookies” in combination with visitors’ information to provide you with more relevant information about VM2020 and our products and services.
We also use Google Analytics and other tools to track usage of our Websites. See the “Analytics Providers” section below for more information.
When you visit our Websites, we collect your IP address to track and aggregate non-personally identifiable information. For example, we use IP addresses to monitor the regions from which visitors navigate our Websites and to direct queries to the most appropriate VM2020 personnel. If you are a prospective or current VM2020 customer, your IP address will also be stored in association with your record to make certain functions available to you, including your access to Portals.

Our legal basis for processing your personal information is that it is necessary for our legitimate interests in conducting and developing our business and meeting and anticipating the requirements of our current and prospective customers.
