Cookies & Spamming
DO WE USE 'COOKIES'?
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings.
INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING AND OPT-OUT
To decide what is relevant to you, we use information you make available to us when you interact with us, our affiliates, and other third parties. For example, we might look at your browsing behaviors. We, or our partners, might also look at your location. We might look at these activities on our platforms or the platforms of others. We work with third parties who help gather this information. These third parties might link your name or email address to other information they collect. That might include past purchases made offline or online. Or, it might include online usage information.
The Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising program provides consumers with the ability to opt-out of having their online behavior recorded and used for advertising purposes. To opt out of having your online behavior collected for advertising purposes by participating companies, click here. If you would like to opt-out of all such trackers, you can do so by turning off all cookies through your browser settings.
Certain choices you make are both browser and device-specific.
Our Do Not Track Policy:
- Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our sites may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.

Thus, we cannot be responsible or liable for the security of your Personal Data whilst in transit via the Internet to us.
DO I HAVE CHOICES REGARDING MY PERSONAL DATA?
How can you opt-out, remove or modify Personal Data you have provided to us? To delete all of your online account information from our database, sign into the 'My Account' section of our site and remove your shipping addresses, billing addresses and payment information.

VRC may transfer your Personal Data to one of its databases or to companies within the VRC group or to its partners, who have agreed to keep your Personal Data confidential and secure, outside of your country of residence.
