PRIVACY POLICY

Verus believes strongly in protecting the privacy of its clients, prospective clients, and users of its web site. We collect personal information only when necessary to answer questions or to otherwise provide valuable services.

We do not collect personal information about users of our web site unless they take advantage of its customization features. We collect only aggregate information about the behavior of web visitors in order to improve the quality of the site.

Collection of Personal Information

In some cases, we may ask you for personal information.

We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide services to you or in order to do their jobs.

Customization

Some areas of the site can be customized according to user preferences. We use individual preferences to deliver custom content online and analyze aggregate preferences in order to improve site quality.

Publication Orders

If a user orders a publication, their personal information will be used to fulfill the order, and may be shared with third parties involved in fulfilling your order (a printer, for instance).

E-mail

If you send an e-mail message to us, we will use your e-mail address and other information you provide to respond to your request.

For general users of the site, we do not use “cookies” to save personal information. Cookies are used only during a user session. We do use cookies to identify users who take advantage of the customization features of the site and to save this identification between site visits.

Third Parties

We do not share or sell the information you provide with parties outside of Verus. Any data we collect, however, may be transferred throughout Verus for internal purposes only.

Modification

This privacy policy is subject to change. All changes will be posted on this page.
