B. ONLINE IDENTIFICATION TOOLS

Like many website providers, we use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and provide a better web experience. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and gather General Information.

We use session and persistent cookies to keep track of your shopping cart and for other purposes like personalizing the Service. A cookie is a small file stored by your internet browser on your computer. You can find more information about cookies and how to manage them at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. A "session cookie" stores temporary information that is erased when you close your web browser or turn off your computer. A "persistent cookie" enables the Service to recognize you when you return to it and remains stored on your computer until you delete it. Your web browser is usually set up to initially accept cookies. If you set your browser to reject cookies, the Service will not be able to recognize your account or to personalize the content that you see. We do not and cannot use cookies to gather other information that may be stored on your hard drive.

Third-party advertisers also help us display tailored content to our customers and serve advertising on our behalf. These advertisers may also utilize cookies and/or web beacons to collect General Information about your activities on the Service, to target advertising based upon your interests and to measure effectiveness of the Service. If you wish to not have General Information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out by visiting http://www.youradchoices.com or similar online resources about behavioural advertising. Please note that opting out prevents targeted advertising from selected networks but does not prevent all advertising.

The Service also may include an activity feed, social media buttons and widgets, such as the Facebook "Like" button or the "Share This" button. These features may collect and display your Personal Information, your IP address and the page you are visiting on the Service and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. These features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the Service and your interactions with them are governed by the privacy policy of the third party that provides the feature.

These third-party service providers have access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for any other purpose.

B. ACQUISITION OF VERITAS

Information about customers is considered an asset of Veritas and, as such, may be transferred to another company in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or the sale of an individual website owned by us, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets or to a third party as a part of such merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale.

Anyone who receives an email invitation to use the Service may opt out of receiving such emails in the future by following the opt-out instructions in the email. We take commercially reasonable steps to implement all opt-out requests promptly, but those who opt out may still receive communications from us as we process the opt-out request, or as required for order processing and other purposes.

5. SECURITY INFORMATION

We take every precaution to protect our users' information.

When you send sensitive information (such as your credit card number) to us via our order form, that information is encrypted and protected with SSL, the current industry-standard encryption protocol. When you are on such an SSL-protected page, a picture of a closed lock appears at the bottom or top of some Web browsers. At other times this lock appears open. Another way to tell if you are on a secure page is to look at the address or URL of the page. (Look in the address box or right-click on the page and select "Properties".) These secure SSL-encrypted pages have URLs that start with https:// instead of http://.

If you have any questions about security at our Web site, please contact us here.

6. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF DATA

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our group companies or for a third party service providers of the group or stored in our servers in the United States. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. Please note that data protection and other applicable laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as those laws or regulations in your country or may otherwise differ from the data protection or consumer protection laws in your country. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

7. CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our practices. When we post modifications to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the "Last Updated" date at the top of this web page. The modified Privacy Policy will be effective immediately upon posting on the Service. Your continued use of the Service after the posting of the modified Privacy Policy constitutes your agreement to abide and be bound by it. If we make any material change, we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Service prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. If you object to any modification, your sole recourse is to stop using the Service.

Terms and Conditions of Use

The following terms govern the use of one or more of the following websites by you: Veritas.ie (the "Site"). Terms which are specific to the use of any one Site are set out at the end of these terms and comprise part of them and are incorporated into them.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS OF USE AND DISCLAIMER CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE. By using this Site, you agree to the following terms of use (the "Terms of Use") and our privacy policy. If you do not agree to these terms, you may not use this Site. Veritas Publications Ltd ("Veritas", "we" or "us") reserves the right, at any time, to modify, alter, or update these Terms of Use from time to time. By accepting our terms of use, you agree to be bound by such modifications, alterations, or updates.

General
The information contained in this Site, including but not limited to the rules that govern the use of the Site, may be subject to change. Your use of the Site following any such change constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by the rules, as changed. Your confirmation of acceptance will be sought in respect of any changes which substantially affect your position under these terms.

Copyright
All Site design, text, graphics, and the selection and arrangement thereof are Veritas Publications Ltd, all rights reserved, or in the case of product material, all text and graphics are Copyright protected by the original owner, all rights reserved. Permission is granted to you to copy electronically and to print in hard copy portions of this Site for the sole purpose of using this Site as an information resource (or of ordering goods or services and using this site as a shopping resource). Any other use of materials on this Site-including reproduction for purposes other than noted above, modification, distribution, or reproduction-without the prior written permission of Veritas.ie is strictly prohibited.

Trademarks
The Veritas.ie Site and Veritas.ie mark and logo are service marks of Veritas Publications  Ltd. All other trademarks, product names and company names or logos cited herein or on the Site are the property of their respective owners.

Order Acceptance
If we accept your order, we will send you a confirmation of this by email. The receipt of an email order confirmation by you constitutes our acceptance of an order and the conclusion of a contract between us to sell the goods you have ordered, subject to these terms. Whereas, following such acceptance, Veritas will always seek to meet the requirements of your order, there may be circumstances following confirmation where we are unable to ship products due to unavailability (of which we were not aware at the time of confirmation of the order) . If that is the case, we will notify you as soon as possible and will refund the money for the unavailable products back onto your card or into your account. If the payment process has not begun at that time, the money for such products will not be taken out of your account or from your card. Veritas’s acceptance is therefore subject to the availability of products following the receipt of the confirmation email by you. Equally, while Veritas endeavours not to make any errors on its website and to ensure that its descriptions, details and dimensions of its products, its prices and other information about Veritas or its products, are accurate and up to date, errors can occur. If we identify an error that materially impacts your confirmed order, we will notify you as soon as possible and will provide you with the option of cancelling your order in full or the part(s) of your order affected by the misinformation. If you make such a cancellation, the money for the cancelled part of your order will be refunded to your account or onto your card (or will not be taken at all if the payment process has not begun at that time). This in no way restricts or limits your ability to return the goods in line with our returns policy. Certain orders may constitute improper use of our Site. Veritas reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. Payment will not be taken, or will be refunded, for any refused orders. Your account, including Veritas Rewards, may also be restricted or terminated for any reason, at Veritas' sole discretion, that you have breached these Terms of Use or any other policy or terms of use relating to the Site or if you have otherwise misused the Site. Verification of certain information may be required prior to the acceptance of any order. An order may not be accepted if such information is not forthcoming from you following such a request. Prices and availability of products on the Site are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected when discovered, and Veritas reserves the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions (including after an order has been submitted).

Links to Other Web Sites
Veritas makes no claim or representation, and accepts no responsibility, regarding the quality, nature, or reliability of the sites accessible by hyperlinks from this Site, or web sites linking to this Site.

Warranties and Disclaimers
Veritas intends for the information and data contained in the Site or provided via other channels, including but not limited to phone and email, to be accurate and reliable, however, since the information and data have been compiled from a variety of sources, it is provided "AS IS."

Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL VERITAS OR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS, SUBSIDIARIES, DISTRIBUTORS, AFFILIATES OR THIRD PARTIES PROVIDING INFORMATION ON THIS SITE OR VIA OTHER CHANNELS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PHONE AND EMAIL, BE LIABLE TO ANY USER OF THE SITE OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR LOSS OF USE) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE OR ANY INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREON, WHETHER BASED UPON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF VERITASHAS BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EXCEPT WHERE LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE LAW.

You hereby acknowledge that the preceding paragraph shall apply to all content, merchandise and services available from Veritas through the Site or other channels.

The Site is operated by Veritas from its offices in Dublin, Ireland. These terms and any non-contractual obligations arising from them or in relation to them shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Ireland.

If you have any issue regarding a product or service you have bought from us, you can seek to settle the dispute out-of-court through an Alternative Dispute Resolution or Online Dispute Resolution (ADR / ODR) procedure. These procedures are an alternative to resolving disputes by arbitration or before a court and as such they are called Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). When they are carried out online, they are called Online Dispute Resolution (ODR).

Resolving disputes through ADR/ODR, in general, is easier, faster and less expensive than resolving disputes before a court. Under the EU-wide ODR Regulation, the European Commission has established a European Online Dispute Resolution platform (ODR platform). The ODR platform is a web-based platform that is specifically designed to help consumers who have bought goods or services online and subsequently have a problem with that online purchase. It allows you to submit your contractual dispute and conduct the ADR procedure online and in any of the 23 official languages of the European Union.

The ODR platform is accessible here: http://ec.europa.eu/odr.

Becoming a Supplier

Interested In Being a Supplier?
The Internet has created a tremendous opportunity for manufacturers to drive additional revenue growth and reach a new and growing set of customers. For seven years, we have enabled our suppliers to successfully tap into this growth while working closely with them to protect and promote their brand, complement their existing retail channels and facilitate smooth logistics and communications flow. We understand the importance of flexibility and tailor our approach to meet our suppliers' specific needs.

We value many supplier relationships and believe these to be the key elements to fostering a successful partnership:

Partnership in Customer Service Excellence - Veritas' ability to provide great customer service begins with our supplier's commitment to ship orders quickly, package products with care, provide accurate in-stock status and work with us to rapidly handle any issues that may arise.

Brand and Channel Integrity - Veritas is absolutely committed to helping its suppliers' brand flourish online. We collaborate with our suppliers to tell their products' stories the way they want them told. We are sensitive to our suppliers' desire to have a consistent value proposition and brand message across all of their retail outlets and we work closely to ensure our relationship is complementary to our suppliers' existing sales channels.

Flexibility and Ease - Each of our suppliers works closely with a Veritas category team that is highly proficient at taking the supplier though the entire process of: (1) establishing the relationship, (2) effectively merchandising the product, (3) driving growth and (4) providing excellent customer service. We understand that every supplier may have unique needs in areas of logistics, order flow, payments, returns, etc. and we try to tune our approach to match our suppliers' needs and to make the entire process as smooth and seamless as possible.

If you are interested in growing your business, please email us and our Sales and Operations manager will get back to you. We look forward to hearing from you.
