Information Collection and Use

Website Visitors

V.A. Brown Consulting uses your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site.  By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Like most website operators, V.A.

V.A. Brown Consulting’s purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. From time to time, V.A. Brown Consulting may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

While using the site, we may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on vabrownconsulting.com blogs/sites. V.A. Brown Consulting only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

For example, we may ask visitors who sign up at vabrownconsulting.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with V.A. Brown Consulting are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, V.A. Brown Consulting collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with V.A. Brown Consulting. V.A. Brown Consulting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, V.A.
