How do we use “Cookies”?
When you visit the website, Vermilion places a “cookie” on the hard drive of your computer to track your visit. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your hard drive through your web browser that can only be read by the website that placed the cookie on your hard drive. The cookie acts as an identification card and allows our website to identify you and to record your passwords and preferences. The cookie allows Vermilion to track your visit to the website so that we can better understand your use of Vermilion’s website so that we can customize and tailor the website to better meet your needs. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. However, on most web browsers you may change this setting to have your web browser either: (1) notify you prior to a website placing a cookie on your hard drive so that you can decide whether or not to accept the cookie; or (2) automatically prevent the placing of a cookie on your hard drive. It should be noted that if cookies are not accepted, you may not be able to access some of the web pages found on the website.
How is your personal information protected?
Vermilion endeavors to maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to prevent your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification or disclosure. Unfortunately, data transmissions over the internet are not 100% secure. As a result, while Vermilion strives to protect your personal information, we do not represent, warrant or guarantee that personal information will be protected against loss, misuse, interception or alteration and do not accept any liability for personal information submitted to us via the internet, nor for your or any third parties’ use or misuse of personal
information. Any personal information you transmit to us will be at your own risk.
