Information V12 Collects and How We May Use It

V12 Websites
V12 does not collect personally identifiable information (PII) about visitors except when visitors specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. PII may be gathered from registration forms, content submissions, and community postings (e.g., chat and blogs). We may collect PII, such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, contact preferences, and other identifiers as part of our effort to transact business with you and to answer your inquiries. We may also collect PII from you for marketing purposes unless you “opt-out” and request that you not be contacted in conjunction with such marketing activities. We will not knowingly collect, use or disclose data for marketing purposes on anyone under the age of 18.

Marketing Data Products and Services
Our marketing data products contain publicly available information, surveys and information from other data collectors. These products are used by businesses in their offline and online marketing programs. Our data products and service may include PII, such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, contact preferences, and other identifiers. We take consumer privacy very seriously. In addition, we are members of the ANA and its DMA division, IAB and DAA and adhere to all their guidelines, self-regulatory principles and ethical practices.

Your Choices and How to Contact Us

Unsubscribe or Opting Out

Opting Out of V12 Marketing Communications
V12 maintains contact lists to communicate with our clients and prospects. All email messages sent to these lists include an opportunity to unsubscribe or opt-out of future email messages. You may request to opt out of our marketing and information products, as well as be removed from further marketing or promotional communications by completing this form or contacting us via email at privacy@v12data.com.

Opting Out of our Marketing Data Products and Services
To opt-out of our Marketing Data Products and Services Databases, please complete this form or contact us via email at privacy@v12data.com. Your request will remove your name and address from our marketing databases. However, please note that opting-out of our databases will not prevent other companies from sending you direct marketing materials or making telemarketing calls.

Opting Out of Telephone Data:
We subscribe to the ANA/DMA’s Telephone Preference Service (TPS). This service is also the Official Do Not Call list for the States of Pennsylvania and Wyoming. To register your opt-out preference, please visit www.dmachoice.org/DMAdnclist/index.php

We subscribe to the Federal Trade Commission’s Do-Not-Call Registry. If you wish to decrease the amount of unsolicited telemarketing calls you receive you should register with the Federal Trade Commission’s National Do Not Call Registry. The federal government’s Do Not Call (DNC) Registry allows you to permanently restrict telemarketing calls by registering your phone number at donotcall.gov or by calling 1-888-382-1222. Placing your number on this national registry will stop most telemarketing calls, but not all of them.

The ANA/DMA (www.dmachoice.org) also provides individuals with a form to use to have their names removed from other direct marketers’ mail, e-mail, and telephone call lists. V12 honors opt-out requests made through the ANA/DMA’s services.
