VF! is committed to the protection of data collected of all Identifiable Person’s (herein referred to as “you”) that our business interacts with. This policy explains how our agency handles personal information that can be associated with a specific natural or juristic person (Identifiable Person).
We collect the least amount of personal information for legitimate business transacting purposes, gathering what we believe is essential, or for the specific transaction at hand. Our legal basis for information collection and use depends on the personal information and the context in which the business collects it. Majority of our information collection and processing activities are typically based on contractual necessity. We retain your personal information for as long as it is required, for the purposes stated in this policy. Sometimes we may retain personal information for longer periods as permitted or required by law, such as to maintain suppression lists, prevent abuse, if required in connection with a legal claim or proceeding, to enforce our agreements, for tax and accounting or to comply with other legal obligations. When we no longer have a legitimate need to process your personal information, we will delete and anonymize your information from our active databases. We will also securely store the information and isolate it from further processing on backup devices until deletion is possible.
Withdrawal of Consent
Where we rely on your consent as the legal basis, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, but this will not affect the processing that has already taken place.
Legitimate Interests Notice
Where we rely on legitimate interests as the legal basis and those legitimate interests are not specified, we will clearly explain to you at the time the information is collected.
Children’s Personal Information
Our products and services are not directed to individuals under the age of 18 years. We do not knowingly collect information from children under 18 years of age. If we become aware that a child under 18 years of age has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information.
