No Collected Information is obtained from you, unless it is voluntarily provided, except for any Collected Information obtained automatically through the Site as set forth in this policy. Regardless of the method used to obtain Collected Information, Valutis Consulting will only collect and retain such Collected Information in its primary and backup files only to an extent that is consistent with the purposes for which it was provided and for Valutis Consulting’s other legitimate business purposes (including, but not limited to, marketing).

You may refuse to provide any information to Valutis Consulting at any time by terminating your use of the Site, or in all other cases not involving use of the Site, by notifying Valutis Consulting as set forth in Section 19. If you refuse to provide any information when requested to do so by Valutis Consulting or the Site, you may not be able to access, or otherwise receive the benefits of, certain products and services from Valutis Consulting or features of the Site.
5. Electronic Communications
You may from time-to-time send Valutis Consulting an email message in connection with your use of the Site, or in the ordinary course of business.

6. Analytical Information
When you access the Site, Valutis Consulting will collect Analytical Information. Your browser may provide you with the ability to not accept cookies, as well as the ability to delete already-existing cookies. If you refuse, or delete previously-existing cookies, you may not be able to receive the benefits of certain features of the Site.
Analytical Information will only be used by Valutis Consulting (a) to record your use of the Site, (b) to diagnose problems with the Site, (c) to improve the Site and make the Site more useful to you and other users, and (d) for other legitimate business purposes of Valutis Consulting (including, but not limited to, marketing).

Certain Personal Information posted by you on the Site may be accessible to the general public, and Valutis Consulting is not responsible for protecting such Personal Information from loss or unauthorized access, alteration, destruction, disclosure, or use. For example, if you participate in any public forum on the Site, any information disclosed by you when doing so may be available to the general public. Also, since no transmission of information over the Internet or electronic storage of information is completely secure, it is possible that Collected Information could be lost or accessed, altered, destroyed, disclosed, or used without authorization despite Valutis Consulting’s commercially reasonable measures to protect such information. In providing information to Valutis Consulting, you must assume the risk that Collected Information could be lost or accessed, altered, destroyed, disclosed, or used without authorization.
All Collected Information may be used by Valutis Consulting for any legitimate business purpose (including, but not limited to, marketing), unless expressly stated otherwise in this policy. If Valutis Consulting expressly states in writing that any Collected Information will only be used for a specific purpose, Valutis Consulting will only use it for such purpose, unless you subsequently consent to its being used for another purpose.
Valutis Consulting may at any time, in its sole discretion, transfer or disclose any Collected Information, whether or not you furnished such Collected Information for a specific purpose, to (a) third parties retained by Valutis Consulting (including, but not limited to, any affiliates, distributors, sub-contractors, or vendors of Valutis Consulting) for any purpose for which Valutis Consulting could use such Collected Information, (b) comply with, or as permitted by, any applicable law or government request or subpoena, (c) cooperate with law enforcement, and other third parties, in investigating a claim of fraud, illegal activity or infringement of intellectual property rights, (d) protect the rights, property or legitimate business interests of Valutis Consulting or a third party, or (e) transfer such Collected Information to a third party acquiring all, or substantially all, of Valutis Consulting’s assets.
