On our website, there are a variety of ways to interact with us that may require or request your Personally Identifiable Information.
Unsubscribing to E-mail Vertex wants to make it easy to unsubscribe to e-mails we send to you. Just look for the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of any email we send and follow the instructions there. You can unsubscribe at any time for any reason. In addition, may contact us at the address or phone number provided in the Contact section below.
Your friend’s e-mail address
We will use your friend's email address to send the specific message you asked us to send. We will not contact your friend again unless he/she voluntarily subscribes to our services.
We recognize that some people may abuse our "send to a friend" system to send email to persons who are not true friends and do not want email from us. Though minimizing such risks is important to us, we still consider this service important enough to offer it.
Collection of Information
At Vertex Ranch, Inc., we do direct some online services to children (defined as persons under age 13). Because we wish to make our best efforts to protect the privacy of all users of our site, including children, we endeavor to comply with the 1998 Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. While these measures are included elsewhere in this policy, we summarize them here for the sake of communicating them clearly and understandably to you. Our site:
We automatically track and collect "Traffic Data," including your computer's IP address, domain server, type of computer, and type of web browser when you visit our site.
We also maintain logs of the specific details of your activity on our site (e.g., how long you were signed on, the pages you visited, and when a particular link is clicked).
Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you.
In order for you to access certain services and to purchase products that we offer on the website, we sometimes require you to provide us with Personally Identifiable Information that may include:
From time to time, our site may request information from users via surveys. Participation is completely voluntary. Information requested may include demographic information (such as age and zip code).
We may post poll questions on the site that allow children under 13 to respond by email. Information gathered from polls or surveys is only for our internal use. We may post sample answers to polls or surveys on the website, but we do not include personally identifiable information in those sample answers.
Our site may provide a feature whereby individuals, including children, may send an online greeting card via email. We require the sending individual to provide his or her email address in order to send the card as if it came directly from them. That email address is not retained after the card has been sent.
If you request information related to our ministry, our products or services, or seek to obtain promotional material, or request that we contact you, we will use your Contact Data to do such things.
We use your Financial Data to verify your qualifications for certain complementary products or services or to bill you for products and services.
We may use your Demographic Data to customize and tailor your experience on the website, such as displaying content that we think would interest you or monitoring and improving the use of our website, and improving user satisfaction.
We use Traffic Data for monitoring and improving the use of our site and the satisfaction of visitors to our site.

Notifications of claimed copyright infringement and counter-notices must be sent to our designated agent:Legal Department
We are only able to accept notices in the English language.
We will respond to claims of copyright infringement committed using the Vertex Services that are reported to our Designated Copyright Agent, identified above, in accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 ("DMCA") or, as applicable, other laws.

We do not share your Contact Data or Financial Data with third parties except those who are providing services to us, such as a mailing service. Even then, we carefully screen those whom we use to provide such services. At Vertex, we treat such information, and more importantly, your trust in providing it, very seriously. In certain instances, we may share your Contact Data with our wholly-owned affiliated organizations or our foreign Associate Offices, if it makes sense for one of those entities to contact you on behalf of Vertex. But even in those cases, our affiliated organizations and our foreign Associate Offices are also bound to maintain the confidentiality of the shared information.
We may share Demographic Data and Traffic Data, with advertisers and other third parties. The data that we share is not personally identifiable and is mixed with similar data from others.
You may choose not to provide us with any Personally Identifiable Information. If so, you can still access and use much of our site; however, you will not be able to access and use those portions of the site that require your Personally Identifiable Information. If you do not wish to receive the information we provide, you may opt-out any time we ask you for Personally Identifiable Information.
In addition, if you are a parent of a child under the age of 13, you may opt-out of our disclosure of your child's information to any third party but still allow us to collect and use the information for our purposes.
Your Personally Identifiable Information is stored on secure servers. We provide you with the capability through encryption technology to transmit your Personally Identifiable Information from your computer to our e-commerce system if your web browser has that capability.
At times, we use password protection to protect your privacy and security and to limit the visitors to various portions of our site to those who we intend to grant such access.

VERTEX DOES NOT WARRANT, EITHER EXPRESSLY OR IMPLIEDLY, THAT THE INFORMATION PROVIDED BY ANY CUSTOMER OR VISITOR SHALL BE FREE FROM INTERCEPTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, AND DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. EACH CUSTOMER OR VISITOR IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF HIS OR HER OWN LOGIN INFORMATION.
