VCM Inc. is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of our current and prospective clients, as well as any visitors to our web sites www.verney.ca, www.governmentevents.ca, and www.workshopcentral.ca or any event specific web site owned by VCM Inc.
We only request personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be directly linked to you personally) in order to provide that service or product to you.
At time of registration, information that we gather includes:
Upon registration of an event, we allow delegates the option of not including their email addresses as part of the participant list for conference handbooks. In this case, only VCM Inc. will have access to the delegates’ email addresses.
VCM Inc. uses your information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate back with you, and to update you on service and benefits.
From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable.
We may also use that information to let you know of additional products and services about which you might be interested. You can choose not to receive such information by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Data collected online may also be combined with information you provide when you contact VCM Inc. to request further information, to request help solving a registration or billing issue or making a comment.
VCM Inc. will never ask for credit card information to be sent via email and frowns upon such a practice. Upon receiving credit card information, we ensure our security measures protect against unauthorized access to credit card information and will only use it to process payment for the event registered by the client.
VCM Inc. is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. VCM Inc. will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others. Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide online with our Associates who are acting on our behalf for the uses described in "Purpose of the collected information". These Associates, including those in Canada and/or any other countries, are governed by our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data and are bound by the appropriate confidentiality agreements. Furthermore, VCM Inc. and our Associates in Canada are prohibited from disclosing personally identifiable information to third parties by law.
If you believe VCM Inc. or one of our Associates is not adequately following these guidelines, please notify us. VCM Inc. respects all applicable Canadian privacy regulations.
