Privacy Policy

VTUG LLC is committed to actively protecting the privacy of every user of our website. We will never give, sell, or share personal or private information with anyone.  It comes down to trust, something that each and every one of us at VTUG takes very seriously.

Our objective is to provide a safe haven in which all website users and members are able to share their knowledge, insight and opinions—positive and negative—without any possibility of being harassed, spammed, or marketed to.

Please continue to read for more details on our privacy policy.

Information Collection & Sharing

VTUG does not and will not provide your personal information to any third party, unless directly authorized by you to do so.

Specifically:

VTUG collects information from our users and clients at several points on our web site.

VTUG is the sole owner of any information collected on our web site.

VTUG does not sell, report, or share contact lists or usage information with any third party.

VTUG does not have any usage and/or information reporting obligations to any third party.

Although we require that a user provide us with an e-mail address, we do not display a user’s e-mail address, or any other personal information, when interacting with our site.  When a user leaves a comment, we will identify the user with a display name and role chosen by the user upon registration.  We collect a valid corporate e-mail address solely for the purpose of authenticating the validity of the user.

In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere above, VTUG will only ever disclose your personal information to the extent that it is required to do so by law, in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings, and in order to establish, exercise or defend its legal rights.

This information includes pages or documents viewed, click stream data while you are on our site, search terms entered, and databases used. If you are a registered user, this information is maintained and stored with your registration information.

This information may be used for the following purposes, but again, is never shared with, sold to, or rented to a third party:

VTUG may use aggregated forms of this information in order to help us understand usage patterns and areas of specific interest, as well as to identify future features and functions to enhance our site.

VTUG may use this information to help our clients understand how their subscriptions are being used in order to ensure that our clients receive the maximum value from our site.

Surveys

Participation in these surveys is strictly voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to participate and disclose any information to VTUG. Information requested may include personal contact information (name, e-mail address, etc), as well as discreet and specific information related to you and / or your company (storage products used, capacity under management, etc). Contact information will only be used for VTUG internal purposes to track respondents to surveys and to provide the results of those surveys to participants. Survey information will be used for internal research purposes as well as for research and analysis that VTUG publishes on its website. No personally identifiable information related to an individual, his or her colleagues, or the company they work for will be disclosed or shared with 3rd parties.

Notification of Changes

Should VTUG decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of the information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
