To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy and facilitate the appropriate use of information, Vayables uses physical, technological and administrative procedures to attempt to protect the personally-identifiable information we collect through the Site. Nevertheless, Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure. You understand that any messages or information you send to the Site may be read or intercepted by others.
Personal Information; Changes to Personal Information
The Personal Information that Vayables collects may include your name, user name, password, email address, address, telephone number and fax number, in the case of purchasing products or services, credit card, shipping and other information relating to your order, information about your participation in programs, events and areas of interest as disclosed to us, and other information that may be requested in log-in, registration and purchase procedures. We may request and collect additional information that is necessary or appropriate for the completion of a transaction requested by you.
For some features of the Site, you may be able to submit information about other people. For example, if you wish to e-mail an article from the Site or send information about an interesting product to a friend, you will submit your friend's e-mail address, or if you make a purchase for another person on the Site and want it shipped directly to that person, you may submit the recipient's name, address and certain other contact information. Vayables will use and store any such information that we collect from you about another person to carry out your request and for our own internal purposes.
From time to time, Vayables may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Site, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page and which hyperlinks, if any, they "click" on. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of the Site are most popular and to enhance the Site for visitors. We may group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Site to our existing or potential business partners, sponsors, advertisers or other third parties, or in response to a government request. Vayables may also group demographic and Preferences Information and responses to surveys that we collect from visitors into aggregate data for the same purposes. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will not be disclosed together with your Personal Information under these circumstances.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Vayables may use "cookies," "log files," "clear gifs" or similar technologies on certain portions of the Site. "Cookies" are small text files stored on your computer's hard drive. "Clear gifs" are small graphics files stored on your computer's hard drive that are similar in function to cookies. They allow Vayables to personalize your experience, provide specialized content and support to customers, record session information, recall visitor preferences and/or simplify the completion of online forms. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can use settings on your browser to disable or turn off cookies. If you choose to reject the cookies used by the Site, you may be unable to access certain areas of the Site, your use of the Site may be degraded, or your ability to complete a purchase may be compromised. "Log files" are files that store information such as internet protocol addresses, browser type, internet service provider, pages visited before or after the Site and similar demographic information for aggregate use to determine how the Site is used.
Third Party Websites
Please note that you may have cookies placed on your computer by third party websites that refer you to the Site. Although we do not share your Personal Information with these third party websites, they may be able to link certain non-personally identifiable information we transfer to them with Personal Information they previously collected from you. Please review the privacy policies of each website you visit to better understand their privacy practices. In addition, Vayables would like to inform you that anytime you click on links (including advertising banners), which take you to third party websites, you will be subject to the third parties' privacy policies.
While we support the protection of our customer's privacy on the Internet, Vayables expressly disclaims any and all liability for the actions of third parties, including but without limitation to actions relating to the use and/or disclosure of Personal Information by third parties.
How We Use and Share Personal Information
With respect to the Personal Information we collect, we may retain and use that information for various purposes. Vayables may use the Personal Information internally, separately or in combination with pre-existing information, for the following purposes:
- To establish an account for you, respond to your questions or send emails to our mailing list subscribers;
- To provide any requested products or services, including, without limitation, membership services, seminars, professional development programs, tutorials, classes or other training services, books, subscriptions, polls, curricula or other products;

Personally-identifiable information collected on the Site may be stored and processed in the United States or abroad.
As Vayables develops, we may buy other businesses or their assets or sell our business assets. Customer information (including Personal Information) is generally one of the business assets involved in such transactions. Thus, in the event that Vayables or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information would be one of the transferred assets.
Children Under the Age of 13
Vayables does not attempt to collect personal information from children. We cannot always determine if a user is a child. Vayables does not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal information from a minor under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information on the Site. If you are under 13, (a) do not use or provide any information on this Site or through any of its features; (b) do not register on the Site; (c) do not make any purchases through the Site; (d) do not use any of the interactive or public comment features of this Site; and (e) do not provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or any screen name or user name you may use.
