WEB PRIVACY STATEMENT

Collecting and Using Personal Information

Thank you for visiting one of web sites for Vine Solutions, Inc.: www.vinesolutions.com. When you visit and navigate our web site and when you communicate with us via our web site, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. Any non-public personal information that you may provide via our web site will be used solely for the purpose stated on the page where it is collected or in this Privacy Statement. Vine Solutions will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of Vine Solutions unless (a) expressly authorized by you, (b) necessary to enable Vine Solutions contractors or agents to perform certain functions for us, or (c) required or permitted by law. In all cases, we will disclose the information consistent with applicable laws and regulations.

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process. Under such circumstances, Vine Solutions may be prohibited by law, court order or other legal process from providing notice of the disclosure, and Vine Solutions reserves the right not to provide such notice in its sole discretion.

In addition, we may share data with any parent company, subsidiaries, joint ventures, and other companies under a common control or acquirers. As our business evolves, Vine Solutions may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a merger, reorganization, or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy. In such an event, personal and anonymous information may be one of the assets transferred.

By “personal information,” we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, social security number, or telephone number. From time to time, we may request personal information from you in our site in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service.

Your E-Mail

We welcome your comments or questions about our web site and have provided e-mail links for that purpose. We will maintain your comments and questions within Vine Solutions and do our best to address them.

We consider e-mail transmitted via our service to be private correspondence between the sender and recipient. Therefore, we will not disclose the contents of your private communications. If you wish, you may contact us instead at the numbers provided at various locations on our site.

There are some locations on Vine Solutions' web sites where we have made special provisions for a more secure environment in which we can exchange information with you. At each of these locations, we will provide you with appropriate instructions.

Other Information; "Cookies"

You should also be aware that when you visit our web site, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with “usage data,” such as the number of visitors we receive or what pages are visited most often. This data helps us to analyze and improve the usefulness of the information we provide.

Like most commercial web site owners, we may also use what is known as “cookie” technology. A “cookie” is an element of data that a web site can send to your browser when you link to that web site. It is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the web site is able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract other personal information about you, such as your name or address. Most browsers provide a simple procedure that will enable you to control whether you want to receive cookies by notifying you when a web site is about to deposit a cookie file.

Linking to Other Sites

There are some locations on this site where we provide links to products and services offered by other web sites, not owned or controlled by Vine Solutions, that we think might be useful or of interest to you. We cannot, however, be responsible for the privacy practices used by other web site owners or the content or accuracy of those other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies only to our services and this web site. Links to various non-Vine Solutions web sites do not constitute or imply endorsement by Vine Solutions of these web sites, any products or services described on these sites, or of any other material contained in them.

Changes to The Privacy Statement

Vine Solutions may change this Statement from time to time without notice. We recommend you review this Statement periodically. This Statement is not intended to and does not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of Clients or users, but it governs the users and the information provided on this site.
