We will use your personal information only for the purposes set out below.
Vedrocks will ask you for information, including some personal information, if you use services available on the Site as further explained below.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The Site collects certain information when you interact with the Site. For example, the Site may collect “personal information", by which we mean data that can be used to identify an individual, as defined by applicable law. An example of this data is the information you provide from when you complete the registration form. This information can include your name, email address, date of birth, telephone number and other identifying information. We may also collect include other personally-identifiable information such as your attitudes and opinions about our products, interests, household or lifestyle information, demographic data, satisfaction with our website and newsletters and your purchasing and browsing behavior.
The Site may also collect data that does not identify you specifically (non-personal information). In some instances, we may aggregate this non-personal information with personal information, such as combining your name with your geographic location or your browsing history. We will consider the combined information to be personal information as long as it is combined.
In addition, we may aggregate personal information that we collect with information we receive about you from outside sources.
BECOMING A REGISTERED USER OF VEDROCKS.COM
You should keep all your registration information current. You can do this by directly on the Site or you can also send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. Please also let us know if there is any unauthorized use of your account or password. We recommend that you always log out from your account at the end of a session with us to prevent other people from accessing your account without your permission.

When you place an order on vedrocks.com, you have to supply a billing address, telephone number, shipping address, and credit card information. By making a purchase, you become a registered user of vedrocks.com. You can choose to store information needed to make a purchase, such as your credit card number, shipping and billing addresses in the My Profile page.
OUR REVIEWS OR QUESTION & ANSWER SERVICES
If you are not already a registered user, you will become one when you use the Reviews or the Question & Answer service, and any personal information you submit will become part of your profile, as maintained by Vedrocks.
If you choose to share information about yourself in an open format, such as through a site like Facebook or Twitter or in the User Content that you post on our Site, we will treat that information as public information.
HOW VEDROCKS PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION
We understand that our customers expect us to protect their personal information, and we take this responsibility seriously. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information that include industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") authentication to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet help protect your online transaction information from third party interception.
However, no method of internet transmission or electronic storage is 100% secure or error-free, so we unfortunately cannot guarantee absolute security.
In addition, we cannot ensure the security of data during transmission to us or the security of your data on an iPhone (or various other mobile or fixed devices) or on your Twitter page.
Accordingly, despite our efforts, there is always a risk that communications may be unlawfully intercepted or disclosed. If you have reason to believe that your communications with us are no longer secure please immediately notify us by contacting us at the following email address: [email@example.com].
As a result, you should be aware that you transmit all information to Vedrocks at your own risk.
HOW VEDROCKS USES YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We gather information about Site traffic, sales, wish list, and other commercial information which we may pass on to third parties but this information does not include any of your personal information. We strive to limit use of your personal information to those offers that we think you would appreciate receiving.
Finally, we may use your personal information for our internal marketing and demographic studies, together with non-personal data to monitor customer patterns so we can continually improve our site design to better meet our visitors' needs. If we change our policy on disclosure to others, we will inform you and give you the choice of opting out.
In the event that another company buys the assets or stock of Vedrocks, your personal information may then belong to another entity.
HOW TO AVOID RECEIVING NEWSLETTERS AND OTHER VEDROCKS MATERIALS
We may also use e-mail addresses and mailing addresses to send out newsletters and other announcements to you and our other customers with information about new products and special features. If you receive an e-mail and want to avoid further messages, go to the end of the e-mail for instructions on how to remove yourself from the mailing list. You can also edit your e-mail preferences at vedrocks.com > My Profile page.

SOCIAL NETWORKS AND OTHER THIRD PARTIES
We work with trusted third parties, including social network sites like Facebook, and with application developers who specialize in social commerce so we can connect to your social networks. Other social networks we use include Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. All of these companies operate websites. We provide access to our Site by third parties and business partners so we can generate interest in our products among members of your social networks and to allow you to share product interests with persons with whom you are connected on these networks.
For example, information that you may provide to a third party site which is subsequently made available to us by that site is considered "public information" by us because the third party sites made it publicly available. If you do not want us to be able to access information about you from third party sites, you must instruct each of them not to share the information. It is up to you to make sure you understand the information they are sharing and the procedures for limiting the information that is shared by those other sites.
