DISCLAIMER & PRIVACY POLICY

Privacy Policy

At Van Metre Companies, customers are our most valuable asset. We recognize that building a long-term business relationship with you depends a great deal on trust. This trust begins with our commitment to respecting you as well as protecting your privacy.

We’ve structured our website so that, in general, you can visit Van Metre Companies without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. Once you choose to provide us personally identifiable information (name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.) you can be assured that it will only be used to support your customer relationship with Van Metre Companies.

Our privacy statement covers three main areas: Awareness, Choice and Security. Please keep in mind that the Van Metre Companies’ privacy practices may vary as required by local laws and policies.

1. Awareness

Van Metre Companies provides this Online Privacy Statement to make you aware of our privacy practices and of the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

What information we collect

In order to tailor our communications to you and continuously improve our products and services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with our products, and contact preferences.

How we use the information

Van Metre Companies uses your information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate with you, to update you on service and benefits, and to personalize our web site for you.

From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable.

Whom we share the information with

Van Metre Companies will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others. Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide online with other Van Metre entities and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf for the uses described above. Such Van Metre entities and/or business partners also have appropriate privacy policies with respect to the use of this data.

2. Choice

Van Metre Companies will not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first letting you know and offering you a choice. As previously stated, we will also provide you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials from us.

If permitted by law, your permission is secured first, should we ever share your information with third parties that are not acting on our behalf and governed by our privacy policy.

3. Security

To protect against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure and to maintain data accuracy we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data.
