Tracking Technologies

From time to time, VGF may work with third-party service providers to help VGF better understand how you use the Service.

VGF and these service providers may place tracking technologies on your device, such as cookies, web beacons, locally shared objects (sometimes called “flash cookies”), pixel tags, clear gifs, and similar technologies to collect information about you and your use of the Service. Cookies are small data files that may have unique identifiers, and reside, among other places, on your mobile device, in emails we send to you, and on our applications. Locally shared objects, or “flash cookies,” are data files that can be created on your computer by the websites you visit and are a way for websites to store information for later use. Locally stored objects are different than cookies because they are stored in different parts of your computer than cookies. Web beacons are small strings of code that provide a method for delivering a graphic image on a web page or in an email message for the purpose of transferring data. Pixel tags and clear gifs are message-sensing technologies that allow VGF to know if your e-mail client is able to accept HTML messages, and, if it is, send you messages in such a format and determine if you have opened the message. The information that is collected will tell VGF things like, your browser type, preferences, data relating to content that has been displayed to you or that you have clicked on, how you navigated around our Service, the location from where you accessed the Service, the date and time of your use, and how quickly VGF helped you to enter registration personal information. This information will help VGF to better serve you and improve the Service and may also be used in order to further features and processes on the Service, provide authentication and security for your Service accounts, store your preferences, facilitate relevant advertising, and help us learn more about how VGF’s users engage with the Website.

VGF will not grant permission to any of these third-party service providers to collect your e-mail address or password information through this technology. Any third-party service provider will be restricted to use your personal information to perform services for VGF, securely and in confidence. Any such third-party service provider will be restricted from using your personal information for any other purpose, except on an aggregate, anonymous basis.
