VI-grade recognizes the importance of the personal data by which you can be identified, such as your name, e-mail address, or phone number. You can access most pages on the VI-grade Web site without having to provide any personal data. For reasons of system security, we temporarily save connection data, the VI-grade pages visited, the date and length of your visit, the type of browser and operating system you use, and the name of the Web site you previously visited. We also save search keys and entries in forms, for example, for the purpose of compiling statistics or administering the Web site. No other personal data is tracked, unless it was provided voluntarily, for example, for registration, or for a survey. We will not pass on, lease, or sell the data to any third person.
We track the IP addresses of people who visit the VI-grade Web site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are on the Internet. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Web site, track user movements, gather demographic information for aggregate use, and compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors and the daily requests received for particular files. IP addresses are anonymous and not linked to personal data.
