vanem service FAQ how to order




We understand that you are concerned about your security, privacy and the confidentiality of information we may gain about you online. We are committed to respecting your privacy and take care when handling personal information. As part of any transaction and or contact with you we do need to gather certain information so as to be able to process your order correctly and keep our records for future reference. The personal information is collected so we can process your order in a timely manner and post goods directly to you. Information collected may also be used to improve our services and products. The information we collect is typically your name, address, telephone number, payment information and email details. The information we collect from you will not be shared with or sold to other organisation for commercial or other purposes and it will not intentionally be passed on to any third parties.

Whilst we try to minimise the amount of information that you need to provide us with when purchasing goods, please understand at times we may have to verify or ask for additional information from you. Information requested will only be required when needed to process your order, or where a problem with payment has arisen.



1. Information collected and how we use it



The information about you which we may collect through this website varies depending on how you use this website. We will collect information through any electronic forms you submit via this website, or other messages you send us by e-mail. In common with many websites, we may collect information such as the date and time of your visit, the pages accessed and any information downloaded. This information does not identify you as an individual and is used for statistical, reporting and website administration and maintenance purposes only.

Whilst you may browse some information-only areas of this website without providing any personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the full range of services and information available from Vanem.



2. Persons who supply us with details



Customers who supply details such as telephone numbers and email address details will only receive contact from us with information regarding orders they have placed on-line and for our internal processes such as updates, events, promotions and any changes in policies when applicable. This may be from details collected when registering for updates or if you have been a previous customer who has provided us with details for contact. Unless otherwise stated, when you send us an e-mail, the contents of your e-mail and your e-mail address is used by us strictly to respond to your inquiry or purchase.



3. Visitors to our site who are not customers



We are happy to register your interest to receive email updates about products we offer. If you have received an email from us and do not wish to be on our mailing list any longer simply email us to indicate you would like to be removed from the mailing list. Insert the words in the subject box 'Remove me from your mailing list', and we will do so.



4. Credit card and payment information



At the moment we use PayPal for credit card payments so you have total control over who has your banking details. This means we will never see your credit card details or banking details other than the transaction description sent to us by our banking provider when a payment has been made. Although we trust the high security PayPal site for payments and receiving funds, Vanem can not be responsible for third party transactions, faults or mishandlings of information in any way what so ever when they occur using third party providers.

Notes about information received in regards to payment practices. If at any time we receive information from our bank or PayPal in regards to a fraudulent payment or transaction online, we may be obliged to handle your personal information in a different manner and disclose the information we have when ordered to under law. When a case of fraud is committed we will use any and all information to recover all costs and losses occurred by us and to mitigate any further fraudulent transactions.

*If you doubt the veracity of an email or payment request you have received "from Vanem", please inform us immediately before taking any action or making any payment. We will take all steps required to identify any problem or verify any payment requests by other means.



5. Links to other websites



This website may contain links to third party websites. Any such linked websites may contain their own privacy policies or statements. Those third parties, not VANEM, are responsible for informing you about their security and privacy practices.



6. Security



We value the personal information you give us and use a number of mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once any personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. Please note that messages you send us by e-mail are not secure. Always use the appropriate anti virus and security systems when dealing on line.



7. Access to information



If you wish to request access to any personal information which we hold about you as a result of our information collection practices outlined in this Privacy Policy, please contact us using the details on the Contact page. Please provide as much detail as you can about the particular information you seek, in order to help us retrieve it. An access fee may be charged to cover our costs of providing the information to you.



8. Cookies



Like many websites, this website may store some information on computers which access this website. This information may be in the form of a "cookie" or similar file and will help us in many ways. For example, we may use cookies to recognise a browser which has previously visited this website and customise this website according to previous preferences and site behaviour. Cookies may also be used by this website to manage security, manage forms such as the "quote request" form and store information about the type of browser being used. With most Internet browsers, users can erase cookies from their computer's hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
