We may gather additional personal or non-personal information in the future.

Use of Your Personal Information
Vest collects and uses your personal information to operate its website(s) and deliver the services you or your employer have requested.
Vest may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you directly in relation to delivering services. For example, Vest uses the email address you supply to send you a copy of your results.
Vest may share data, excluding personally identifiable HIPAA-protected data, with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Vest, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Vest will never share your HIPAA-protected data with third parties for any reason other than your explicit request.
Vest will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Vest or the Vest site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Vest; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Vest site, or the public.
The Vest website uses “cookies” to authenticate you as a permitted user of the Vest site and to personalize the experience of using the Vest site. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
The primary purpose of cookies on the Vest site is to allow for unique users. When you successfully sign into the Vest site, a cookie is stored in your web browser which tells the Vest server that you are an authenticated user with permission to enter the Vest site.
You have the ability to enable or disable cookies on your web browser. If you choose to decline cookies, you will not be able to use the Vest site as we will not be able to authenticate you as a valid user.
Security of Your Personal Information
Vest secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
Vest uses SSL Encryption to protect your information as it moves from your computer to the Vest server. This is the same type of encryption used to protect payment data transmitted from your web browser to an online merchant.
Vest encrypts your data once it is stored on the Vest server in such a way that, even if there were an intrusion into the Vest server, your data would not be decipherable.
