When we say ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘VamTam’, it’s because that’s who we are and we own and run the Sites vamtam.com and all sub-domains. Take the time to read this policy because it forms a part of the user terms for each of our Sites. By using any of our Sites, you agree to this policy. If you do not agree to this policy, we won’t take it personally, but please do not use our Sites.
What type of personal information do we collect?
How we collect personal information?
We may collect personal information directly when you provide it to us, automatically as you navigate through the Sites.
When you provide personal information to us via the Sites you’re consenting to us collecting and using that information in line with this policy and the user terms of each of the Sites. You are likely to provide personal information when you complete Help Desk registration and buy items or services on our Sites, subscribe to a newsletter, or email list, submit feedback, fill out a survey, or send us a communication.
We may use your personal information in order for us to:
operate the Sites and provide you with services described on the Sites, like verifying your identity when you sign in to the Help Desk, facilitating and processing transactions that take place on the Sites, responding to support tickets and helping facilitate the resolution of any disputes
update you with operational news and information about our Sites and services like notify you about changes to our Sites, website disruptions or security updates
provide you with information that you request from us or, where we have your consent to do so, provide you with marketing information about products and services which we feel may interest you
carry out technical analysis to determine how to improve the Sites and services we provide
monitor activity on the Sites, like to identify potentially fraudulent activity and ensure compliance with the user terms that apply to the Sites
manage our relationship with you, like by responding to your comments or queries submitted to us on the Sites or asking for your feedback or whether you want to participate in a survey
manage our legal and operational affairs.
We may disclose personal information to people like:
Our professional advisers (lawyers, accountants, financial advisers etc.)
regulators and government authorities in connection with our compliance procedures and obligations
a purchaser or prospective purchaser of all or part of our assets or our business, and their professional advisers, in connection with the purchase
other people where we are authorized or required by law to do so.
We store personal information on secure servers managed by our service providers. Personal information we hold is subject to security and access controls, including username and password authentication and data encryption where appropriate.
You can access some of the information we collect about you by logging in to your Help Desk account. You also have the right to request access to the information we hold about you and to request corrections of any errors in that information. You may close the account you have with us for any of our Sites at any time.
Where we have your consent to do so (e.g. if you have subscribed to one of our e-mail lists or have otherwise indicated that you are interested in receiving offers or information from us), we may send you marketing communications about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. You can ‘opt out’ of such contacts if you prefer not to receive them in the future.
If your e-mail address has changed and you would like to continue receiving our e-mails, you will need to access your account, update your e-mail address information, and sign-up again for those e-mails you want to receive.
If we send e-mails with commercial content, we will generally include an “unsubscribe” facility that you can use to opt-out of further communications – to opt out, follow the instructions in the e-mail. We might not have an opt-out facility in necessary operational and service-based e-mails concerning purchases, user terms, important updates and need-to-know messages. Using our Sites, you agree that we do not need to include opt-out facilities in those messages.
You also have choices about cookies, as described below. By modifying your browser preferences, you can accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is set, or reject all cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, some parts of our Sites may not work correctly in your case.
You are also entitled to ask us to port your personal information (i.e. to transfer in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format to you), to erase it, or restrict its processing. You also have the right to object to some processing based on our legitimate interests, such as profiling that we perform for direct marketing, and, where we have asked for your consent to process your data, to withdraw this consent as more fully described below.
These rights are limited in some situations – for example, we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your personal information. Sometimes, we may retain some data even if you withdraw your consent.
Where we require your personal information to comply with legal or contractual obligations, then the provision of such data is mandatory. If such data is not provided, we will be unable to manage our contractual relationship with you or meet obligations placed on us. In all other cases, the provision of requested personal information is optional.
