Except as set forth herein, VCFA will not use any personally identifiable information that it collects for marketing or promotional purposes and will not use personal information to contact visitors to our website for any purpose unless necessary for the enforcement of this Privacy Policy or VCFA’s policy on the use of the VCFA website or the vcfa.edu domain.

Therefore, you agree that the personal information you submit to the VCFA website is submitted at your own risk and that VCFA will not be liable to you for any breach of security or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information.

VCFA does not intend to collect any information directly from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you may use the VCFA website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian. In the event that VCFA learns that it has inadvertently collected information from a child under the age of 13, any and all such information will be promptly deleted from VCFA’s systems.
