Vinson Privacy Policy

(Last Updated: December 14, 2020)

1. Our Commitment to Privacy

We, Vinson Group, LLC, being the owner and operator of the website at, respect the privacy of your personal information.  This website is referred to in this Privacy Policy as “our website” or “our site”.  We provide this explanation about our online information practices as a show of our commitment to protect your privacy.

We do not sell or rent personally-identifying information collected during your use of our website.

In accordance with this Privacy Policy or otherwise upon notification to you at the time of data collection or transfer, we may share your personally-identifying information with a third party.  You will always have the option of not permitting the transfer by not using the particular services for which the information is collected or shared.

2. The Information We Collect

At the time you provide information to us through our site, we may collect and store your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and other personally-identifying information.  The user information we collect is categorized as follows:

  • Application Information — information that you provide to us through our website and through other means.  Examples include your email address, mailing address, including zip code, and phone number.
  • Transaction and Experience Information — information about your transactions with us, as well as information about our communications with you.  Examples include your requests for information and our responses.

We need this information to communicate with you.  We also use this information to customize your experience using our website.  We may also share the information we collect about you with governmental agencies, but only as required by law.  We may ask you for personally-identifying information at other times when you communicate with us.

In addition, we automatically gather general statistical information about our website and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, etc., but in doing so we do not reference you by individual name, email address, home address, or telephone number.  We use this data in the aggregate to determine how much our users use parts of our site so we can improve our site.  We may provide this statistical information to third parties, but when we do so we do not provide personally-identifying information without your permission.

We may use cookies, beacons, tracking pixels, and other tracking technologies to store and sometimes track information about you and your use of our website.  A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive.  A beacon is a transparent graphic image placed on our website to monitor the behavior of a visitor to our website.  A tracking pixel is a 1×1-pixel graphic used for tracking user behavior, site conversions, web traffic, and other metrics at a site’s server level.  When you access our website, your personal information is not collected through the use of tracking technology.

Generally, we use cookies to remind us who you are and enable us to access your information so you do not have to re-enter it and to help customize our website and improve your experience.  We may also use cookies, beacons, tracking pixels, and other tracking technologies to gather statistical information about usage by registered or unregistered users, to research visiting patterns, and to help target advertisements based on user interests; and track progress and participation of users.

Preferences and options configurations in your browser determine if and how a cookie, beacon, or tracking pixel will be accepted.  Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default.  You can change those configurations on your computer if you desire.  By changing your preferences, you can accept all cookies, you can be notified when a cookie is sent, or you can reject all cookies.  If cookies are disabled, you may be required to re-enter your information more often and certain features of our site may be unavailable.  You may not decline web beacons or tracking pixels.  However, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or by modifying your web browser’s settings to notify you each time a cookie is tendered, permitting you to accept or decline cookies and make web beacons and tracking pixels ineffective on an individual basis.  You should be aware that getting a new computer, installing a new browser, upgrading an existing browser, or erasing or otherwise altering your browser’s cookies files may also clear certain opt-out cookies, plug-ins, or settings.

Our site does not engage in the collection of personally-identifying information from users across third-party websites or third-party online services or applications, except as specified by you when you elect to register and login to or otherwise access our site via certain third-party sites or applications, such as, for example, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.  Any interaction with a third-party site or application typically allows the third party to collect some information about you (whether through cookies, registration information or otherwise).  These third parties may even track you when you do not interact with the application.  If you have engaged any of these third-party service providers, their respective privacy policies will govern their tracking and collection of information.  Aside from the foregoing, we do not knowingly enable other parties to collect personally-identifying information about our users’ activities over time and across different sites, applications, or services.

If your browser or similar mechanism gives our site a “do not track” signal, our site will make commercially reasonable attempts to honor your settings (although we still may deliver and use cookies and other tracking technologies for non-marketing purposes).  However, we do not make any promises or guarantees about the effects of any “do not track” choice that you may make because: (a) such nuanced treatment is not necessarily available or effective for all browsers, mechanisms, or tracking technologies, and our commercially reasonable attempts to honor your settings might not be effective to preclude tracking or behavioral advertising at all or over any particular period of time; (b) third parties may not honor your settings or our policies and may use cookies or other tracking technologies for behavioral advertising despite our commercially reasonable attempts to prevent them from doing so; and (c) tracking technologies, browsers, and access devices may change from time to time and our commercially reasonable attempts might not be effective for each technology or across all platforms.

3. The Way We Use Information

We use your personally-identifying information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product and services offerings, and to customize our site’s content, layout, and services.  We may use your email address, your mailing address, and phone number to contact you regarding administrative notices and communications relevant to your use of our site.

We may also use or disclose information to: (a) resolve disputes; (b), investigate problems; (c) enforce our Website User Agreement (Terms of Use); (d) protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates; (e) protect our rights, privacy, safety, or property, and that of our affiliates, you, or others; and (f) allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.  At times, we may review the status or activity of multiple users to do so.  We may disclose or access information whenever we believe in good faith that the law so requires or if we otherwise consider it necessary to do so to maintain service and improve our goods and services.  In addition, as our business changes, we may buy or sell various assets.  In the event all or a portion of assets owned or controlled by us or our affiliated entity are sold, assigned, transferred or acquired by another company, the information from and about our website users may be among the transferred assets.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to manage our website, and to enhance our site based on the usage pattern data we receive.

4. Security

We employ reasonable and current security methods designed to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information.

Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online — for example, on message boards or blogs, through email, or in chat areas — that information can be collected and used by others.

No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure.  As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

5. International Users

We maintain information in the United States of America and in accordance with the laws of the United States of America, which may not provide the same level of protection as the laws in other jurisdictions.  Our website is not intended for use outside the United States of America.  If you reside outside the United States of America, you should not use our website and should not provide us with any personally-identifying information.

6. California Residents – Your California Privacy Rights

To the extent the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 is applicable to our collection of information that identifies or relates to you or your household, you may have a number of important rights free of charge.  In summary, those rights include: (a) the right to know the categories of personal information to be collected and the purposes for which the information will be used (see Sections 2 and 3 above); (b) the right to know the categories of personal information that were actually collected in the preceding 12 months and sold or disclosed for business purposes in the preceding 12 months (see Sections 2 and 3 above); (c) the right to require us to respond to verifiable requests with disclosures about our collection, sale, or disclosure of your personal information (such requests may be made by contacting us as described in Section 7 below); (d) the right to access a copy of the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you (see Section 7 below); (e) the right to request that we delete, and request any third-party service providers to delete, any personal information collected about you (see Section 7 below); and (f) the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information to third parties (Note, we do not sell or rent personally-identifying information to third parties).
