By using this website, you accept the practices that are described in this Privacy Statement, which is part of the Terms of Use governing the use of this website and the terms and conditions governing any other VGRD service you use. If, however, any area within or feature offered by this website or other VGRD website or service sets forth a separate or additional privacy statement, terms and conditions or other policy, then that separate privacy statement, terms and conditions or other policy shall apply in connection with that area, feature, website or service.

If you do not agree with the practices explained in this Privacy Policy, do not complete the Registration Application for VGRD form.
NOTE: Without registering with VGRN, you cannot access certain features of this website.

At times, you may voluntarily give us or VGRD will ask you to provide personal information. For example, you will be prompted to supply us with personal information when registering to use VGRD, accessing certain features of this website or other VGRD services or initiating communication through this website or other VGRD services. We will use your personal information to, among other things, help customize your site experience, enhance our services and facilitate communications with you or between you and the companies that are a part of VGRD’s database of companies and are listed on this website ("Suppliers") and any other third parties that advertise on this website or provide services, features or information in connection with this website or to VGRD services.

While you do not need to register to browse through products listed on this website, you do need to register for an account to access certain features such as merchant’s identity, product price and initiate communication with merchant. In those instances, you may be asked for personal and demographic information, including your Name, E-mail Address and Company Name, and you also will be required to choose a username and password that will be used to gain access on subsequent visits to VGRD. This information will constitute your user profile. While most of your user profile is used internally for site analysis and improvement and other business purposes, some of it is used in compiling reports for the Merchant, our affiliates, agents and contractors and in connection with other VGRD services. However, except as provided or permitted in this Privacy Policy, VGRD will not disclose, without your consent, or associate with your site usage, any of your personal contact information provided through your VGRD account. You may edit or change your user profile at any time by logging into VGRD. If you wish to delete your user profile, use the "Contact Us" link and ask that your VGRD’s account be deleted.

You are responsible for all actions taken with your VGRD’s username and password. Therefore, we do not recommend that you disclose your password to any third parties. If you choose to share your username and password with third parties, you are responsible for all actions taken with your VGRD account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose control over your information (including, but not limited to, information provided when signing up for a VGRD account or requesting quotes), data, or other materials (collectively, "Content"), and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.

When you use the communication features and software applications on this website to initiate contact with the Merchant, you may be asked to supply contact information required by these companies to respond to your request to contact you. Depending on how you wish the Supplier or Provider to respond to your request, you may be asked to provide certain personal information, including one or more of the following: Name, Telephone Number, Fax Number, Mailing Address and E-mail Address. We will only forward the merchant the contact information you provide.
