This policy sets forth the type of information Vext Science collects from you via this website: www.VextScience.com (the Website), the way we use such information, and the procedures we use to keep such information confidential. It also describes the choices available to you regarding the use of, your access to, and how to update and correct your personal information.
Vext Science, Inc. takes every reasonable precaution to protect our users’ personal information. When users submit sensitive information via the Vext Science, Inc. website, their information both online and off-line.
Notification of Changes.
Vext Science, Inc. may change our policies at any time. We will post those changes on this Website. Information collected before changes are made will be secured according to the Policy in place at the time such information was collected notwithstanding future Policy changes. The practices and policies in this Policy replace all previous notices or statements with respect to the same subject matter. If we make any material changes, we will notify you by email (at the email address you specified in your account) or by other means of a notice on this Website prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
Opt-out or Termination of User Accounts
If users have opted out of all communication with the Website, or deleted/inactivated their account, Vext Science, Inc. will not contact such users again nor will their personal information ever be used by us.

We are committed to preventing others from unauthorized access to the personal information you provide to us, and we maintain commercially reasonable procedures and technology designed for this purpose. The Website has reasonable technical and organizational security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of information under our control. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information, such as credit card number, that information is encrypted and is protected with the industry standard software, 256-bit SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just browsing.
While we use 256-bit SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment.
The Information We Collect
We may ask you for personally-identifying information in connection with a promotion or survey. Any email you receive from us, or third parties authorized by you to send email, will contain additional opt-out or unsubscribe options in the email with instructions on how to unsubscribe from receiving future emails.
If you want to send an item to your friend, like a gift card, we will ask for your friend’s first name, last name, and email address. We will only use this information to complete your order and send the item to your friend. Vext Science, Inc. stores this information for the sole purpose of processing this order and tracking the success of your order. Your friend may contact us at info@VextScience.com to request that we remove this information from our database.
We may automatically gather general statistical information about our website and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, goods and services purchased, transactions completed, etc. To do this, we use action tags and cookies provided by our site analytics and marketing partners.
