Privacy Policy

The following information explains the Internet Privacy Policy which the Employees’ Retirement System of the Government of the Virgin Islands (GERS) has adopted for its website, www.usvigers.com (including all sub-domains within the website). This information is intended to explain our current Internet privacy practices, but shall not be construed as a contractual promise. We reserve the right to amend our Internet Privacy Policy statement at any time without notice.

At the GERS, we respect the privacy of our web site visitors. We do use information you provide to better serve your insurance needs. We also recognize that this information belongs to you and that we must treat it accordingly. The following statement spells out our privacy policy in more detail. The policy applies to www.usvigers.com. If there are material changes to this policy in the future, information concerning any such change will be posted on this webpage.

 

Our Use of Personal and Non-Personal Information

We collect two kinds of information about our on-line visitors, personal and non-personal information. Visitors are not required to register to access the public pages of the GERS’s site. Non-personal information is collected to track the total number of guests visiting the GERS site and to guide our efforts to improve our site. The non-personal information we monitor includes the browser type and operating system being used by our visitors; areas of the site visited; date and time of access; host or service-provider information, and identification of the referring site. This information is used exclusively for our internal purposes and is not disclosed to any non-affiliated third parties except our producers. Personal information that can identify a visitor, such as name, address or other information is collected only when voluntarily offered and solely for purposes that are clearly identified on our sites. Personal information acquired through registration is kept confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties except as may be required by law.

 

Our Use Of “Cookies”

The GERS may place an electronic "cookie" in the browser files of a guest's computer. Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual’s computer hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies themselves do not enable us to access any personal information about our visitors; however, they do allow the GERS to analyze guests’ use of our sites. This analysis helps us better understand which areas of our sites are most useful and popular so we can plan improvements and updates accordingly. The GERS does not use cookies to retrieve information from a visitor’s computer that was not originally sent in a cookie.

 

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other public or private entities' websites, whose privacy practices we do not control.

 

Choice To Provide Information

There is no legal requirement for you to provide any information at our website. However, our website will not work without routing information and the essential technical information. Failure of your browser to provide nonessential technical information will not prevent your use of our website, but may prevent certain features from working. Failure to provide optional information will mean that the particular feature or service associated with that part of the web page will not be available to you.

 

Internet Communication

The privacy of communication over the Internet cannot be guaranteed, because the Internet is not a secure medium. The GERS does not assume any responsibility for any harm, loss, or damage you may experience or incur by the sending of personal or confidential information over the Internet by or to the GERS.

 

Consent

By using this site, you signify your consent to GERS' on-line privacy policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use this site. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to update, change, modify, add, or remove portions of this policy from time to time.
