Website Visitors

Like most website operators, My VAT Direct collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. My VAT Direct’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how My VAT Direct’s visitors use its website. From time to time, My VAT Direct may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

My VAT Direct also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://MyVATdirect.com/ blog posts. My VAT Direct only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to My VAT Direct’s websites choose to interact with My VAT Direct in ways that require My VAT Direct to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that My VAT Direct gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://MyVATdirect.com/ to provide a username and email address.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
