Your IP Address
For each visitor to the ValueOptions® site, ValueOptions® servers automatically collect information about which pages are visited and the IP address or domain name (e.g., valueoptions.com) of visitors. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is used to help identify you and to gather general demographic information.
ValueOptions® is the sole owner of the information collected from you on the ValueOptions® site. We will not sell, share, rent, lease, trade or otherwise provide this information to independent third parties in ways different from what is disclosed in this Privacy Statement.
ValueOptions® will not disclose your personally identifiable information to independent third parties other than those who help us operate the ValueOptions® site.
We may also share aggregated demographic and profile information (information that does not allow you to be identified or contacted) with our business partners for marketing and promotional purposes. The aggregate information we share with our business partners is not linked to any of your personally identifiable information. For example, ValueOptions® may provide information to third parties about how many people use our Web site, what features of the Web site they use and how many users of the Web site live in certain zip codes.
ValueOptions® may disclose account information in special cases (i) to comply with valid legal requirements, such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (ii) when ValueOptions® has reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who, intentionally or unintentionally, may be causing injury or harm to ValueOptions® users or other persons or violating the Terms and Conditions of this site.
In the event that ValueOptions®, or any component of ValueOptions®' operations, is merged with, or is acquired by, another entity, then any such successor or acquiring entity may become the successor to our obligations with respect to the personal information that you have provided to ValueOptions®, which would be necessary for the entity to effectively continue business with ValueOptions®. By using the ValueOptions® site, you consent to any such use of your personal information by such an entity assuming control of ValueOptions®' operations as a result of a merger, purchase of ValueOptions® assets, or liquidation of ValueOptions® in bankruptcy or insolvency.
