VELOCITY World Media is concerned about your privacy. We want you to understand what Personally Identifiable Information we collect about you, and how we use your Personally Identifiable Information ("PII").

What is "Personally Identifiable Information"?
"Personally Identifiable Information" refers to any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains. This includes information that is used in a way that is personally identifiable, including linking it with identifiable information from other sources, or from which other personally identifiable information can easily be derived, including, but not limited to, name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, financial profiles, social security number, and credit card information. To the extent unique information (which by itself is not Personally Identifiable Information) such as a personal profile, unique identifier, biometric information, and IP address is associated with Personally Identifiable Information, then such unique information is also considered Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (i.e., without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.

"Third Party Personally Identifiable Information" ("TPPII") includes Personally Identifiable Information collected through the Site from a person other than the person to whom it pertains or whom it identifies.
