Privacy Policy

Since VASO Group values transparency in our dealings, we wanted to make sure that this value extends to all parts of our organization. As such, we’ve created this Privacy Policy to explain what we do with your information, why we collect the things we collect, and to give you a heads up regarding the disclosure of that information to third parties.  This Privacy Policy applies to https://www.vasogroup.com (hereinafter, “us”, “we”, or “https://www.vasogroup.com”). We commit to doing all within our ability to protect personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

Founded in 2014 and based in Dallas, Texas, VASO Group is a full service eCommerce agency specializing in online retail on all channels, including but not limited to Amazon and Walmart.com. We uphold our Value Added, Service Oriented promise by cutting unnecessary steps in our procedures to maximize return for our clients.

What we Collect

VASO Group collects non-personally-identifying information to help us better serve site visitors. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • What language you prefer
  • What site you came from before you landed on ours
  • What time of day you accessed the site
  • Where in the world you are

This information lets us know how to better serve our visitors and make our site more useful to them. Below is a specific breakdown of how we collect that data:

Contact Forms

We store user input data (possibly personally-identifying – see Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information below) sent through the contact forms on this website, along with meta information about the submissions, including the time stamp, the origin IP address, and the user agent (browser).

Cookies

We use cookies to help you have a better experience on our site. Basically, we get to customize content for you, provide relevant advertising, etc. If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Analytics

We may collect data points about how visitors to vasogroup.com behave while they are on our site, i.e. What path do visitors take? How long do they hang out and read copy on a page? In addition, we also use Google Analytics to collect information about website visitors.

Third Party Plugins

Third party services may collect information about website visitors. We currently use Google Analytics and LiteSpeed Cache on this website.

We use Google Analytics to monitor and analyze the use of our site. Google Analytics is a web analytics website offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of the Site. This data is shared with other Google websites. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

Our website utilizes caching by LiteSpeed Cache in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary. We may use QUIC.cloud services to process & cache your data temporarily. Please see https://quic.cloud/privacy-policy/ for more details.

Links to External Sites

Sometimes (especially on our blog), we may include links to external sites (in the form of reference articles, etc). We don’t operate these other sites and can’t influence their respective privacy policies, nor can we take responsibility for their content, privacy setup, or data collection practices. If you click links and go outside of www.vasogroup.com, it would be a good idea to review the privacy policy of that outside site.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Some visitors to VASO Group’s website choose to interact with us in ways that require the gathering of personally-identifying information. This information may include, but is not limited to:
  • First and last name
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Address, State, Province, ZIP/Postal code, City

What we gather depends on what type of interaction we have (For example…if we ever enable comments on our blog, we will need to collect your IP address should you choose to leave a comment; If you sign up to receive communications from us, we’ll need some personally identifying information like you email address to make sure this happens).

What we Collect From Third Parties

If you visit our site, we may try to advertise to you via Google AdWords. This means you may see an ad for our services on third party websites or even in the Google search results page. Google (and other third-party vendors) use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits. Any data that ends up being collected will be used in line with this privacy policy (and Google’s privacy policy). Remember, you can always customize your ad preferences or opt out of online advertising entirely by altering your cookie settings (or use a cookie blocker in your browser).

Who we Share Your Data With

All collected data is used internally (in the form of a report) to assess our website’s performance. However, we may share your information with third parties in two circumstances:
  • To better our services: In which cases, we will only share non-personally-identifying information.
  • When compelled by law: In exceptional circumstances, we may disclose or allow government and law enforcement officials access to your personal data, in response to a subpoena, search warrant or court order (or similar requirement), or in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, with or without notice to you. Such disclosure or access may occur if we believe in good faith that: (a) we are legally compelled to do so; (b) disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding actual or suspected illegal activity, fraud, or other wrongdoing; or (c) such disclosure is required to protect our legitimate business interests, including the security or integrity of our products and Services.

How Long we Retain Your Data

We keep your personal information only for as long as we need to. This time period may depend on what we are using your information for, in accordance with this privacy policy. For example, if you have provided us with your email address when contacting us about a specific inquiry, we may retain this information as long as your inquiry remains open. We might also retain it in our own records so we may effectively address similar enquiries in the future. If your personal information is no longer required for this purpose, we will delete it or make it anonymous by removing all details that identify you.

However, if necessary, we may retain your personal information for our compliance with a legal, accounting, or reporting obligation or for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific, or historical research purposes or statistical purposes.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Your Data, Your Rights

If you wish to exercise your privacy rights under any applicable law, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), or the CCPA, such as – to the extent applicable – the right to know/request access (specific pieces of personal data collected; categories of personal data collected; categories of sources from whom the personal data was collected; purpose of collecting personal data; categories of third parties with whom we have shared personal data), rectification or erasure of your personal data held with VASO Group, please visit our Privacy Tools page.

If you wish to exercise your right to restrict or object to such personal data’s processing, to direct us not to sell your personal data to third parties now or in the future, or to port such personal data, or the right to equal services and prices (e.g. freedom from discrimination) (each to the extent available to you under the laws which apply to you) – please contact us via email at: info@vasogroup.com. 

Please note that such rights are not absolute. There are instances where applicable law or regulatory requirements allow or require us to refuse to provide some or all of the personal data that we hold about you. In the event that we cannot accommodate your request, we will inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.

Please also note that we may require additional information, including certain personal data, in order to authenticate and process your request. Such additional information may be then retained by us for legal purposes (e.g., as proof of the identity of the person submitting the request). We may redact from the data which we will make available to you, any personal data related to others.

International Transferring of User Information

The personal information we collect is stored and/or processed in the United States, or where we or our partners, affiliates, and third-party providers maintain facilities.

The countries to which we store, process, or transfer your personal information may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. If we transfer your personal information to third parties in other countries: (a) We will perform those transfers in accordance with the requirements of applicable law; and (b) We will protect the transferred personal information in accordance with this privacy policy.

How we Protect Your Data

While we love and really understand the internet…in some ways it is still pretty wild out there. We do absolutely everything in our power to protect your information (with reCAPTCHA encryption and employee data protection training), we can’t guarantee absolute security. After all, no method of sending information over the internet can be guaranteed 100% secure.

Privacy Policy Changes

As of this updated writing in August of 2022, we don’t anticipate making major changes to this privacy policy. But…we might, as needed, have to make tweaks. So, if you are back visiting this site after a few months, we encourage you to check this page out again and make sure you still agree to how we use your data, as continuing to use the site after a change will signal that you accept the Privacy Policy.
