Like most website operators, VSK media 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. VSK Media’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how VSK Media’s visitors use its website. From time to time, VSK Media may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Certain visitors to VSK Media websites choose to interact with VSK Media in ways that require VSK Media to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that VSK Media gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
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 are registered, you can also manage your preferences by updating/changing your privacy settings of your account by getting in touch. You can unsubscribe at any time via the unsubscribe button in our marketing emails.
We will not share your personal information with businesses outside of VSK Media, without your explicit prior consent, for them to contact you for marketing purposes (except if they are contacting you on behalf of VSK Media).
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party sites, products or services.

What are cookies?
How and why do we use them?
We keep all the information collected from cookies in a non–personally identifiable format. Our cookies located on your computer do not retain your name or your IP address.
What type of cookies do we use?
The following types of cookies are used on Our Site.
These are cookies that are strictly necessary for the operation of Our Site. Without these cookies, Our Site won’t work properly. Accordingly, we are not asking you for your specific consent for those cookies. For all other cookies, your informed consent is required.
Session cookies are temporary cookie files that are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your browser and go back to the site that created that cookie, Our Site will treat you as a new visitor.
Cookies that send information to us
These are the cookies that we set on Our Site and they can only be read by Our Site. This is known as a “First Party” cookie.
We also place cookies on brand advertisements that are placed on other websites owned by third parties (e.g. Facebook). We obtain information via those cookies when you click on or interact with the advertisement. In this situation, the brand is placing a “Third Party” cookie. The brand may use the information obtained by these cookies to serve you with advertising that is relevant and of interest to you based on your past online behaviour.
Cookies that send information to other companies
These are cookies that are set on Our Site by Our partner companies (e.g. Facebook or advertisers). They may use the data collected from these cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to Our Site. For example, if you use a social widget (e.g. the Facebook icon) on Our Site, it will record your “share” or “like”. Facebook (as the company setting the cookie) will collect the data. This is known as a “Third Party’’ cookie.
Demographics and Interest Reporting
Our Site uses Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to improve advertising. Some common applications are to target advertising based on what’s relevant to a user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen. This is done using something called the DoubleClick cookie. If you don’t want your information collected in this way, you can:
DoubleClick cookies contain no personally identifiable information. Sometimes the DoubleClick cookie will contain an additional identifier that is similar in appearance to the cookie ID, and is used to identify an ad campaign to which a user was exposed previously.
We will not use any information reported by Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to identify any individual user of our site.
