Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information to Vector Data Services, Inc., or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Vector Data Services, Inc. uses or discloses the Information for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected.



Vector Data Services, Inc. will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether their Personal Information is (1) to be disclosed to a third party or (2) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
