At Vital Office, we understand and share our customers concerns about how personal information is collected, used and shared. Please be assured that we will always handle your personal information securely and carefully. By accessing this Site, you agree to be bound by the Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement, please do not use this Site.
Why we collect information
We may collect information to deliver products or services to you, to complete other transactions with you or on your behalf and/or to better understand your requirements and preferences.
This information enables us to personalise and improve our service and in particular to provide offers that is of greater interest or benefit to you.
How we collect this information
When you place an order and/or register your details with us, we store that information for future reference. This saves you time when you shop with us again, as you don't have to re-enter your details.
Sometimes we may add to your personal information with information from external sources. This is mainly done to verify the accuracy of the information we have and, again, to personalise and improve our service.
What we collect
The personal information we collect is in most cases supplied by you when you register your details, place an order or provide feedback to us.
Generally, the information we collect includes your name, business name, address, delivery address, phone number and e-mail address. We will sometimes obtain other details, such as type of business.
Who we may share your information with
We will often need to pass personal details such as your name, business name and address to companies who perform parts of our delivery service. This includes organisations such as major delivery companies and third party fulfilment contractors.
We will not use your information for purposes unrelated to the services we provide, unless we first obtain your consent. From time to time, we may provide aggregated information where it is not possible to identify an individual and to other business partners for various purposes.
We will take all reasonable steps to store your personal information securely. In particular, we want you to feel confident in dealing with us on the Internet. For many of our customers we realise this is an unfamiliar way of buying products and services. Only specific employees in our Customer Service, Marketing, Stores, Finance and IT areas have access to our customer's personal information, and only under strict controls and procedures.
Our e-commerce sites use a process called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL locks all critical information passed from you to us, such as payment information, in an encrypted envelope, making it extremely difficult for this information to be intercepted.
About Cookies... and how they work
When you interact with us on the Internet our system will automatically send you a "cookie". A cookie is a small amount of information sent from a web server to your computer. This information does not personally identify you, but it does tell us that your computer has visited our site and what areas of the site have been browsed. We can also tell if you select a product and put it in your shopping basket, but do not complete the transaction. However, we do not know your personal identity, unless you have previously registered with us.
