Grid24 Ltd. (trading as “VectorEdit”) respects the privacy of every individual who visits our sites or responds to our interactive advertisements and other communications. This Privacy Statement outlines the information VectorEdit will collect and how we will use that information. This Statement will also instruct you on what to do if you do not want your personal information collected or shared when you visit VectorEdit sites or respond to our advertisements and other communications.
We may modify this Privacy Statement and you should therefore periodically visit this page to be sure that you have read and agree with our most current privacy statement.
Personally identifiable information
VectorEdit will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (that is, your name, address, telephone number, or email address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily.
When you provide personally identifiable information to us, we may ask if you want to receive future communication from us, such as newsletters, email or other information. You can choose not to receive this communication, if you wish.
If you do not want your personally identifiable information collected, please do not submit it to us. If you have already submitted this information and would like us to remove it from our records, please visit the “contact us” page on the brand website.
Personal information collected on the site may be stored or processed in your country of residence or any other country in which VectorEdit or its subcontractors or agents maintain facilities and by using the site, you consent to any transfer of information outside your country of residence. VectorEdit will ensure that if information is transferred outside your country of residence it will be treated in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
In addition to providing you with the service or information you request, your personally identifiable information may also be used to help us track the way you use our site and our products. We may also combine the information you provide with information that we collect separately, including information you have provided to other organisations (with consent that it can be shared) as well as public information. All of this information will help us, for example, better design our products, websites and advertisements. In order to do this, we may also share your information with companies who carry out work for us. These companies have agreed to only use your information in the way we tell them and to have procedures in place to protect the information.
If we share your information with a company, other than as set out above, we will contact you first and give you the opportunity to remove your information from our database unless you have already given your consent to this.
We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires.
VectorEdit has no intention of collecting any personally identifiable information (that is, name, address, telephone number, or email address) from individuals under the age of thirteen years. Where appropriate, VectorEdit will specifically instruct children not to submit such information. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child should visit the “contact us” page on the brand website if they would like this information deleted from our records.

Cookies and other Automated Means of Data Collection
