Information about all
VCL Intermedia visitors that VCL Intermedia automatically receives
In general, our service
automatically gathers certain usage information like the numbers
and frequency of visitors, very much like television ratings that
tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only
use such data in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine
how much our customers use parts of a given site. This allows us
to improve our services and ensure that they are as appealing as
they can be.
For example, VCL Intermedia uses a technology nicknamed "cookies"
that tells us how and when pages in our site are visited, and by
how many people. Such cookies do not collect personally identifiable
information and we do not combine information collected through
cookies with other personally identifiable information to tell us
who you are or even what your screen name or e-mail address is.
We also may provide
statistical "ratings" information, never information about
you personally, to our partners and affiliates about how our members
(collectively) use our services. We do this so they too can understand
how much people use their areas and our site in order for them to
provide you with the best possible Web experience.

information as may be required by our Credit Card (or other payment
method) Processors to ensure that the transaction is genuine or

is for our users protection as well as for our own.
We may also use that
information to let you know of additional products and services
that we believe would be of interest to you. You may choose not
to receive such information if you don't want to by letting us know
on the registration screen when you sign up for that product or
service, or by emailing via the link that can be found on the site
that you have joined.
We may also ask you for information about your interests so that
