Protecting your personal information is extremely important at VIMS. It's especially important for a growing marketing consulting company like VIMS, as our clients trust us to look after a huge amount of information that concerns their marketing strategies.
The way the information is collected, stored and shared is equally important. Our clients expect us to manage their information privately and securely. Failure to do so will result in a reputational damage to VIMS and its management, as the clients will stop trusting us.
