How Vanguard Pro Shop protects your information
Vanguard Pro Shop has implemented a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Secured networks only are used to obtain and contain a user's personal information. In fact, you’ll notice that as soon as you enter a page that requests you enter personal information, the URL (web address) will begin with https. The “s” in the URL indicates that you are on a secure server. All personal information that we gather is only made accessible to a limited number of employees who have explicitly been given special access rights to access such information. All the sensitive credit card information supplied by users is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, an encryption process that ensures the safety of customer credit card information. Neither Vanguard Pro Shop LLC nor Club will store credit card information that has been entered on the Club’s shopping site.
Disclosure of information to third parties
  1. Vanguard Pro Shop LLC will only disclose personal information gathered on its websites for the sake of fulfilling requested products and/or services. Each of our partner vendors has agreed to use disclosed customer information exclusively for the sake of fulfilling such requested products and/or services. However, the use of such information is not subject to our control. Therefore Vanguard Pro Shop LLC is not liable for the misuse of personal information that has been transmitted to its partner vendors for the sake of fulfilling requested products and/or services.
  2. Vanguard Pro Shop LLC may release your personal identifiable information as is required by law enforcement or judicial authorities in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish, exercise, and defend our legal rights. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or otherwise as required by law.
  3. Vanguard Pro Shop LLC may transfer your personal identifiable information if Vanguard Pro Shop LLC is acquired or merged with another company. If this occurs, Vanguard Pro Shop LLC will provide notice on this page that your information will be transferred and that your information may be governed by a new privacy policy.
