Collecting your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to register before entering a contest, ordering e-mail newsletters, joining a limited-access premium site, or when purchasing and registering VectorNet products.

For example: If you choose to make a purchase from this VectorNet Web Property, we will request personal information such as: name, address, telephone number, credit card number and shipping information.
When you buy and install a new product, we may ask you to register your purchase electronically. When you do, we keep this registration information on file with any information you've already given us on previous visits to one of our Web Properties. This is considered your personal profile.
Use of your Personal Information
We use your personal information for four primary purposes:
