You can access and change your information by logging into your account and going to the "Admin" or "Account" pages. We will NOT disclose, sell or exchange your personally identifiable information (name and email address) to or with anyone, without your approval. The only circumstances under which personally identifiable information about VCI users will be shared in a manner inconsistent to that stated above is if we believe disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or legal process, protect or defend the rights or property of VCI or others, or respond to claims that the content of any communication on the VCI system violates the rights of others.
How does VCI use the information collected?
We will aggregate member information and perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our members and visitors, to measure overall demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the VCI domain and to analyze how and where to use our resources. In addition, VCI may compile and disclose aggregate information about its members for promotional or other purposes. For example, we might want to disclose that a certain percentage of our users are located within a particular geographic area or are Mortgage ChampionsTM participants.
