1. Our Commitment to Privacy

Vacuum Instruments Corporation, LLC and its subsidiaries (“VIC”) believe that online privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a service, commercial and entertainment medium. VIC recognizes the need for the appropriate protection and management of personally identifiable information that you provide us. We respect the importance of individual privacy and value the confidence of our customers, employees, job applicants and other visitors to the website located at vicleakdetection.com (“Website”) who may choose to provide personally identifiable information to us through the Website. The globalization of business in this increasingly electronic economy makes the collection of personally identifiable information of individuals a necessity. It is our goal to balance the benefits of e-commerce with the preservation of individual privacy rights. This Privacy Policy will assist you to understand what types of information we may collect through the Website, how that information may be used, and with whom the information may be shared. This Privacy Policy does not govern the personally identifiable information collection, handling, or use of any other site other than this Website.

2. Collecting Your Information

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personally identifiable information” means information concerning a natural person which, because of name, number, personal mark, or other identifier, can be used to identify such natural person, but only to the extent such information is (1) collected by VIC through this Website directly from the natural person in question; and (2) is maintained by VIC in an accessible form.
