The Sites are intended for use by persons eighteen years of age or older. We do not target the Sites to appeal to children under the age of thirteen and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen.
3. What Information Do We Collect?
Like many other websites, the Sites may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information about you and about the equipment and communications methods that you use to access the Internet and the Sites, including but not limited to your IP address, MAC address, Site usage, type of device you use to connect to the Sites, type of operating system you use (e.g., Microsoft Windows, Google Chrome OS or Mac OS), type of browser you use (e.g., Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari), the domain name of your internet service provider (ISP), and information regarding your Internet location when you see our ads and whether you click on such ads (collectively, "Non-Personal Information"). In addition, we may collect information from or about you, including but not limited to your password, visits to our communities, reservations to join activities, information collected through security systems, information collected through questionnaires and surveys, education level, occupation, ethnicity, marital status, homeowner status and shopping habits, and data from our affiliates or our advertising partners and other third parties. We may combine components of Non-Personal Information with other sources of information, which may include Personal Information about you. In the event that such information is maintained in a manner that identifies the name of, or contact information for, the individual to whom such information relates, it will be treated as Personal Information; otherwise, such information will treated as Non-Personal Information.
We may collect and process information about your general or actual location based on your IP address, Wi-Fi access points, and other geo-location technologies. We may use this information to customize your Site experience or to send you push notifications.
Retargeting and Online Behavioral Advertising
Retargeting uses Non-Personal Information to remind you on other websites that you were browsing our Sites previously with the goal to bring you back to our Sites. We, or our authorized partners (such as Google), may use Non-Personal Information collected on the Sites for online behavioral advertising purposes including retargeting and to customize ads to you when you visit other (non-Vi) sites. If you wish to opt-out of this process, click the OBA logo on our banner advertisements. You will be directed to an opt-out page where you'll be able to select your data preferences.
Cookies and Anonymous Identifiers
Also, we automatically receive and record Non-Personal Information on our server logs from your browser as well as through other analysis of the Sites. We also may collect information using cookies, web beacons, pixels, gifs, tags or other technologies ("Collection Technology"), or through third parties using similar technologies. Collection Technology may operate as a piece of data stored on your browser or device, or may identify, compile, aggregate and/or collect information through other means. When you visit the Sites, your web browser may use Collection Technology to provide you with a personalized experience during your visit and upon your return. Collection Technology also may be used by some other websites for which a link is placed on the Sites or in advertisements that may appear on the Sites. We may combine Non-Personal Information that we collect through Collection Technology with Personal Information and, if so, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information. If you choose, you may set your Internet browser preferences and options so as to reject or delete certain Collection Technology. You may use the Sites even if you choose to do so.
We work with certain service providers that help us track, collect and analyze this information. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having your information used by our service providers, click here.
We also may disclose your IP address to our third party service providers who may use your IP address to capture more information about your visit and allow us to improve the quality of the website. These third party service providers may also match your IP address with their database to send you mail and email regarding Vi’s services. Each email will provide you a link to opt-out of receiving further emails. You may control the data being collected about you by visiting http://www.onlinewebtrak.com/ through a universal consumer options page located at https://tracking.onlinewebtrak.com/Unsub/unsub.html, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or mailing Vi, Attn: Webmaster, 233 S. Wacker Drive, Suite 8400, Chicago, IL 60606.
Some of our third party advertisers or display networks may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising and allow consumers the ability to opt-out of targeted advertising based on web activity tracking. For more information regarding the foregoing, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. Please note that after clicking the link and following the instructions provided therein, even if our third party advertisers or display networks participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising and you opt out of targeted advertising based on web activity tracking, you still may receive standard advertisements from us and targeted advertisements from third parties. You may need to re-click the link and follow the instructions provided therein if you delete cookies or other Collection Technology or use a different computer, device or browser.
4. How Do We Use The Information That We Collect?

5. With Whom Do We Share Information That We Collect?
We will not rent, sell or exchange your Personal Information with any third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. We may share your Personal Information as follows:
As Vi continues to grow and develop its business, it is possible that its corporate structure may change, or that it may merge or otherwise combine with another company, or that it or its assets may be acquired by another company. In any such transaction, we may transfer Personal Information and Non-Personal Information to third parties.
We may share Non-Personal Information with others for any purpose. We may also produce reports on Site traffic or usage patterns and share these reports with third parties, but the information contained in these reports is anonymous and does not allow identification of any specific individual. Additionally, we may take Personal Information and de-identify it and share it in a de-identified or aggregated form with advertisers, business partners, and/or third parties. If we do so, we will ask our contracting parties to agree to keep the information in its de-identified form.
The Sites also may contain plugins for social media websites, such as Facebook, that involve passing of information. We recommend reviewing the privacy policies that apply to these plugins, prior to clicking on such plugins.
6. What Choices Do You Have?
You are responsible for keeping your information with us current. You may update your information by contacting us at email@example.com. We will use reasonable efforts to process any change you request; but requests to delete information are subject to Vi’s internal reporting and retention policies and applicable legal obligations.
You authorize Vi to transmit email or postal mail to you, telephone you, or conduct a personal visit to respond to your communications, promote our services and administer and provide information to you about our community activities.

Within a commercially reasonable time following our receipt of any such notice, we will take steps to assure that you will not receive any further communications from us of such a nature. You may not opt out of communications regarding your dealings with Vi, the Sites or technical information about the same.
Where you have provided us with the appropriate permissions, or where we are legally entitled to do so, we will provide you with marketing materials by email. You can opt out of receiving these emails at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the marketing email. Please note that such requests may take up to ten (10) business days to become effective.
