2. What are cookies and how are they used by Virtika?

Virtika may place Internet cookies on your hard drive.  Internet cookies are small files that may be placed on your hard disk for record-keeping purposes.  Cookies are used to (a) remind us of who you are in order to deliver you better service; (b) estimate our audience size by determining repeat usage of the Site to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior; (c) track your progress and entries in promotions, sweepstakes and contests, if any; and (d) measure certain traffic patterns for use as a research tool to understand how our users’ habits are similar or different from one another.  You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.  By not accepting cookies, some Web pages may not display properly or you may not be permitted to access certain information.

Virtika may also collect IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) to track a user’s session while the user remains anonymous.  We analyze this data for certain trends in statistics, such as which parts of our Site users are visiting and how long they spend there.  In general, we do not link your IP addresses to anything personally identifiable to you.

 3. How is my information used?

Virtika will not sell, rent or lease your personally identifiable information to others without your consent.  The information you provide will be used to support your customer relationship with Virtika.  Your information may be shared with agents, contractors or business partners for the purpose of performing services for Virtika.

We want to help you quickly find information on Virtika and alert you to specific offers, updated information, and other new products from Virtika.  Accordingly, we may send you direct mailings or contact you by telephone about our various products or other products we feel may be of interest to you.  If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply “opt-out” by the means provided for in the mailings or by contacting info@virtika.com.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Virtika does research on our users’ demographics, interests and behavior based on the information provided to us during your use of the Site.  This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis.  Aggregated data does not include personally identifiable information.  Virtika does not sell this information but may share this aggregated data with others.

 4. Who is collecting my information?

When you are on the Site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Virtika alone, unless specifically stated otherwise.  If data is being collected and/or maintained by any company other than Virtika or an agent for Virtika, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer.  If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not purchasing those particular goods.

Please be aware that Virtika advertisers or websites that have links on our Site may collect personally identifiable information about you.  The information practices of those websites linked to Virtika either through advertisements or other hyperlinks are not covered by this Policy.

To “opt-out” means that you have notified Virtika that we no longer have permission to use your information.  For example, when we send you information on a new product, you will be given the opportunity to “opt-out” of receiving such information in the future.

8. What else should I know about my privacy?

Third party Internet sites and services accessible through the Site have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us.  Virtika has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions.  Please be careful and responsible online.  If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
