VSC collects two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Site — Personal Information and Device Information (collectively, “Personal Data”).
Personal Information Collection – Information You Provide
Some areas of this Site may ask You to submit personally identifiable information in order for you to benefit from specified features or to participate in a particular activity.
The information that VSC may collect includes:
(1) personal information (such as your e-mail address and phone number);
(2) demographic data (such as your gender, your date of birth and your zip code);
(3) other identifying information that you voluntarily choose to provide to us, including, without limitation, unique identifiers (such as passwords) and personal information in messages that you send to VSC.
You do not have to provide your personally identifiable information to use the Site, but if you do not, that may limit the features that you are able to access through the Site. VSC generally will take steps to inform you of what information is required and what information is optional for a given feature.
Device Information Collection – Information VSC Passively Collects
When you visit the site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”
VSC uses personal information to best serve job seekers who utilize VSC’s career services and events hosted by VSC or community partners.
In addition to required member information, we may conduct surveys and ask users to volunteer demographic information to be used on an aggregate basis for organizational research. We use such information to best ensure a positive experience for our shoppers, donors, and job seekers.
VSC does not release information about a member or rent our membership email list. VSC is not able to control the practices of external websites and organizations that we may provide links to.
If you have questions about how such organizations use the information gathered when you link to their sites please read their privacy policies. We only share your Personal Information with third parties in order to help us use your Personal Information, as described above.
For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our visitors use the Site – you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here, and you can also opt-out of Google Analytics here.
Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful requests for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.
Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.
We do our best to keep your Personal Data safe. We use safe protocols for communication and transferring data (such as HTTPS). We use anonymizing and pseudonymizing where suitable. We monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks.
Even though we try our best, we cannot guarantee the security of information. However, we promise to notify suitable authorities of data breaches. We will also notify you if there is a threat to your rights or interests. We will do everything we reasonably can to prevent security breaches and to assist authorities should any breaches occur.
