VitalSmarts, L.C. is committed to protecting the privacy of those who visit our websites and with whom we do business. As part of our normal operations, we collect different kinds of information about our website visitors. We have, however, structured our websites so that people have the option to visit without identifying themselves or revealing any personal information.

The following are things you can do while visiting our website if you prefer NOT to have information about your visit collected.

We sometimes use session cookies to limit popup windows to a single browser instance. We also use Java scripting in cooperation with cookies and “spotlight images” or “web beacons” to track website traffic and email response. A “spotlight image” or “web beacon” is an electronic image, called a 1-by-1 pixel or clear GIF, that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as a cookie number, time and date of a page view and so on. These methods do not collect any personal information, but simply aggregate information that allows us to research patterns of behavior on our site to learn how to better meet our visitors’ needs. Our online store uses cookies to store order information. You may refuse cookies by turning off that feature on your web browser.

This website uses Marketo Munchkin cookies (“Marketo”). Marketo’s cookie allows us to track repeated visits to the website and link each visit to the information voluntarily provided by the visitor. For example, if the visitor is asked to provide us with name, company name and email address, we will know the identity of the visitor when they visit the site at a later date. We also use Munchkin code to track email open rates and click-through rates, allowing us to manage the email marketing experience. By using this website, you are consenting to the above use of your data.

For more information on Marketo’s privacy and cookie policy, please visit Marketo’s privacy policy:

In addition, we may use or allow third parties to serve cookies on our site – specifically we use Google Analytics and Marketo to help us monitor our website traffic and understand visitor behavior.

As a global company, we may share information about you with our subsidiaries worldwide and transfer it to countries in the world where we do business in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

Between our controlled subsidiaries, we only grant access to personal information on a need-to-know basis, necessary for the purposes for which such access is granted. In some cases, we use suppliers located in various countries to collect, use, analyze, and otherwise process personal information on our behalf.

Where appropriate, we may also share your personal information with selected partners to help us provide you, or the company you work for, products or services, or to fulfill your requests, or with your consent. When selecting our suppliers and partners, we take into account their data handling processes.

If we decide to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize businesses in some countries, such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of such information from sellers. It is our practice to require appropriate protection for personal information in these types of transactions.

If you do not wish for us to use your data in the ways described above, you may follow the instructions contained in the relevant communication, update your communication preferences in your online account (if applicable), or follow the instructions below, under the heading “YOUR RIGHTS.”

We may place email links on this site to allow you to contact us directly via email. The information you provide is used to respond directly to your questions or comments. Those comments may be stored to improve the quality of our site and our services.

In addition, from time to time, we will purchase or rent relevant public mailing lists from reputable agencies that have obtained your prior approval to receive relevant information based on your personal preferences. Any promotional information sent to you by us will contain instructions on how to be removed from a mailing list source. We will also freely provide information about how and from whom your personal details were given to us when requested.


Our international footprint may involve the transfer of personal information between different subsidiaries, as well as to third parties located in the countries where we do business. Some countries have implemented transfer restrictions for personal information. Where required, we implement Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the EU Commission, or similar contractual clauses in other jurisdictions. This includes transfers to suppliers or other third parties.


We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its accuracy. We implement reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to help us protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. We also require that our suppliers protect such information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure.


We will not retain personal information longer than necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is processed, including the security of our processing complying with legal and regulatory obligations (e.g. audit, accounting and statutory retention terms), handling disputes, and for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims in the countries where we do business.
Because the circumstances may vary depending on the context and the services, the information provided in Online Privacy Statement or provided in a specific notice may provide more detailed information on applicable retention terms. In the event that we process your data for marketing purposes, we will delete your data if we have not received any responses to our marketing activities for a period of three years.
