At Vbrick, we respect and protect the privacy of our customers and those who use our website. The following Privacy Statement provides details about how your personal information is collected and used. This privacy statement applies to the network of Vbrick websites, products, and services that are located in, but not limited to, the Vbrick.com domain. Information Collection and UseVbrick is the sole owner of information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. VBrick may collect information from our users at several different points on our website. Our website may offer several opportunities for visitors to register for promotional and informational mailings, online webinars and resources, and for assistance in evaluating our software, products, and services. These registration forms are often linked to VBrick mailing lists and require users to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this contact information to send users information about our company and its products and services if requested or necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings at any time (see the Choice/Opt-out section below). Sharing and UsageWe will never share, sell, or rent your personal information to third parties for their promotional use. Occasionally, we enter into contracts with third parties so that they can assist us in servicing you (for example, providing customer service). The contracts prohibit them from using any of your personal information for their own purposes, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them. We may disclose or report personal information in limited circumstances where we believe in good faith that disclosure is required under the law. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities to comply with a legal process such as court order, subpoena, search warrant, or law enforcement request. U.S. – EU Safe Harbor StatementVbrick will collect information that can identify individuals, such as name, email address, telephone number, and other similar information (“Your Information”) directly from its enterprise customers, who in turn have received it from end users like you in the European Economic Area. Vbrick has committed to handling Your Information in accordance with the EU’s Safe Harbor Principles. Vbrick’s purpose in collecting Your Information is strictly so that it can meet is customers’ needs in providing services and access to software for enterprise video management. We will never share, sell, or rent Your Information to third parties. Occasionally, we enter into contracts with third parties so that they can assist us in servicing our customers and you as the end user (for example, providing support or helpdesk service). The contracts prohibit such third parties from using any of Your Information for their own purposes, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them. Also, we may disclose or report Your Information in limited circumstances where we believe in good faith that disclosure is required under the law, such as in cooperation with law enforcement authorities to comply with a court order, subpoena, or other such request.  Except as explained here, we will not disclose such data to a third party or use it for a purpose that is incompatible with that for which it was originally collected by our enterprise customers. Vbrick will take reasonable steps to ensure that Your Information is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. Because Vbrick does not have a direct contractual relationship with each end user, and establishing such would be overly burdensome, any request for access to Your Information should be directed to the EU based customer that has provided us with Your Information; and we would then work diligently with such customer to provide appropriate access. Because primary responsibility for Your Information remains with the company in the EU, complaints about potential violations of data protection rights, and appeal procedures (or any applicable grievance procedures under a contract with a trade union), should be directed to the state or national data protection or labor authority in the jurisdiction where you, the end user, works for such enterprise. Vbrick is committed to cooperating in investigations by and to comply with the advice of competent EU authorities in such cases, and the European Commission and the Department of Commerce will be notified appropriately. If you have any questions or concerns about our use of Your Information, please do not hesitate to contact our chief privacy officer at privacyofficer@vbrick.com. For more information about the Safe Harbor Principles, please visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Website at http://export.gov/safeharbor/. Use of Web TechnologiesWe use a variety of technologies on our sites.

At Vbrick, compliance with industry driven quality directives is a priority. Compliance Vbrick WEEE Policy (WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC) Vbrick manufactures Video Encoding and Decoding appliances which are affected by the WEEE directive. These include:
  • VB6000 Range of Video Encoder and Decoders
  • Vbrick IP Receiver
 Vbrick also integrates software onto other manufacturer’s platforms which are also covered by the WEEE Directive. These include software installed onto Servers for Video on Demand, Web Server, and Video Archive applications. According to the WEEE Directive, these products purchased prior to August 13, 2005 can be returned for recycling. For the B2B products VBrick does not need to join the local authorities’ collection systems throughout the EU but can make different arrangements with the customers (Directive 2002/96/EC Article 9 and Amendment WEEE 2003/108/EC). Server Programs: DELL WEEE Program and DELL Environment Program. Vbrick's RoHS Policy (RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC) Per the RoHS Directive (Directive 2002/95/EC) from the European Union (EU), Vbrick has placed only RoHS compliant electrical/electronic equipment (EEE) on the market in the EU after June 30, 2006. Details about specific Vbrick products are available upon request. Vbrick's RoHS compliance planning is based on conformance to the RoHS Directive issued by the EU, and not on any specific Member State legislation or legislation from any other countries. As other environmental regulations are passed by the U.S. or other countries in which Vbrick does business, Vbrick's compliance planning will respond accordingly. Vbrick is relying on the lead-in-solder exemption for servers, storage, storage arrays, and telecommunications equipment, when applicable. The electronics industry is examining the data on lead-free solder and Vbrick is collaborating with the industry research on this topic. Labeling is not required by the RoHS Directive and no industry or regulatory standard for RoHS labeling exists. Currently, Vbrick does not intend to label products as RoHS-compliant. Vbrick provides the following certificates of conformity for all products that comply with the RoHS Directives listed above. We also supply links on that same site to all manufacturers' products that we resell or integrate. Certificate of Conformity - VB9000 Product LineCertificate of Conformity - VB7000 Product LineCertificate of Conformity - MF-STB Product LineCertificate of Conformity - RMS Product LineCertificate of Conformity - DME Product Line Quality Vbrick Quality Management System Vbrick’s quality management system is built on the most fundamental principle – customer satisfaction. Vbrick Systems is committed to:
