Vitasoy International Holdings Limited Internet Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

Vitasoy International Holdings Limited (VIHL) is committed to protecting your personal privacy. We provide this notice to explain the type of information we collect on www.vitasoy.com website (the "Website") and how we use this information.

The Information Vitasoy Collects:

This Privacy Policy applies to all information submitted on the Website. You may be asked to provide personal information so that you can register for a contest or sweepstakes, participate in a game or promotion, receive information, order a product, fill out a survey, or join a club. Your participation is voluntary and we will not require you to provide more information than is necessary to participate in the Website's activities. If you do not want your personal data collected, please do not submit to us.

In some instances, we may ask you questions on an aggregate basis (we do not identify you personally with the information) and such questions will be identified on the Website. In all other instances, please understand that we may track any information you provide on a personally identifiable basis. The types of personal information collected on the Wesite include Your Name, Email Address, Date of Birth, Age, Sex, Address, Education, Occupation and Personal Interest.

Use of the Information

The Website provides you with the opportunity to register on the site through "E-News", etc. Registration is required to be eligible to enter any of the VIHL's online contests or sweepstakes. We may use the information you provide when registering to fulfill prizes.

We use return email addresses to answer the email that we receive, and we may use return email to send you other information. These addresses are not used for other purposes.

When you register with the Website, you can decide to receive information and updates on our products and services. Information will not be used for this purpose unless you request to receive communications from VIHL.

We use information that you provide to improve the Website and our marketing strategies and our products. One method through which the Website may collect aggregate information is the collection of IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers are the computers that "deliver" Web pages and automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from the Website, our servers log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so address. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, you will remain anonymous to VIHL. To the extent that such information may be shared with third parties, please review "Our Privacy Practices With Third Parties" below.

Our Privacy Practices with Third Parties

We may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information about our users with advertisers, business partners and affiliates, sponsors, agents and other third parties. We do not provide any identifiable personal information to any third party for any purpose. For example, we may tell a business partner the number of men and the number of women that entered a contest, but we do not disclose any information to identify those individuals. Access by our employees and agents to your personal information is only on a need-to-know basis on the understanding that this is confidential business information.

Where appropriate, the VIHL will specifically instruct children not to submit such information on the Website and/or will take reasonable steps to ensure consent of a parent or a guardian to such submission.
