We Are Concerned About Privacy
Your privacy is very important to us. Virgin Islands Platinum News respects and protects the privacy of its visitors. In this document, we explain how we use the information you supply us. If we update our privacy policy, all revisions will be posted on this page. We reserve the right to change the privacy policy at any time.

Information Collection and Use
Two types of information may be collected when you visit our web sites, information that you knowingly provide us (called personally identifiable information), and information that is obtained from your visit but is not directly associated with you (called non-personally identifiable information).

Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information may include information that you provide to us by requesting information, when opening an account. This may include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, organization, city, state and zip code, and whether it is for personal or business use. We may use this information, to process your request, to contact you about the status of your request, to contact you with answers to your questions, or to provide information about new and exciting services, promotions and corporate-related information. We may use mailings, telephone calls and e-mail to contact you.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is collected without any direct association with you specifically. In the normal course of using a Virgin Islands Platinum News web site, we may collect information about your habits and usage of our sites. Our web sites may contain technologies known as action tags, web beacons or 1x1 pixel gifs. These employ a common internet technique used to compile aggregated statistics about the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns, common navigation paths within the sites, types of browsers and platforms that access the sites and the average connection speeds used to connect to the sites. This information is used to enhance the online experience of our viewers. These technologies do not use or collect personally identifiable information, such as names or address, and do not link online actions to an identifiable person. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are using the Internet. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. Virgin Islands Platinum News collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregated information and to audit the use of our site. If we are required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena, we will provide these IP addresses to the proper authorities.

    • We need to share your information in order to provide the service you have requested.
    • We are required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena.
