Vision Financial Privacy and Cookies Statement

Vision Financial Corporation (now Selman & Company) values your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal information.  In this Privacy Statement ("Statement"), we describe the personal information that we collect from you when you visit our website, (the "Site").  By visiting this Site you agree that your personal information will be handled as described in this Statement.

Types of information we collect and maintain

When you visit our Site or use our Services we collect certain information about you directly from you, from your activities on our Site, and from third parties.

Information we collect automatically

When you visit the Site, our server will automatically record your IP (which can be used to identify your domain), the date, time and duration of your visit, and any information you provide by filling in forms on any of our websites. An IP address is an assigned number, similar to a telephone number, which allows your computer to communicate over the Internet.  This information does not identify you as an individual, but rather the computer that is being used to view the website.  We only use IP address to analyze trends, administer our website, track general user movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Information you send us by email

Most email, including any email functionality on our site, does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. It is possible that your email communication may be accessed or viewed inappropriately by another Internet user while in transit. If you wish to keep your information completely private, you should not use email.

With whom we share your IP Address

We do not sell or disclose the IP Addresses we collect through the Site to third parties for their own marketing purposes.  However, we may, without your permission, disclose your IP Address under the following circumstances:

  • Service providers
    To third parties that help us to operate, manage or service our business or the Site.
  • Business transfers
    If we are acquired by or merged with another company, if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another company, or as part of a bankruptcy proceeding.
  • In response to legal process
    In order to comply with the law, court order or other legal process, such as in response to a subpoena.
  • To protect Vision Financial and others
    Where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person or violations of our Website Conditions of Use or this Privacy Statement, or in legal proceedings involving Vision Financial. 

How we use cookies and tracking technologies

When you interact with the Site, we strive to make your experience easy and meaningful.  We may use or engage others to use cookies and other technologies to track user activity, collect site data, and administer our Site.


Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes.  There are two types of cookies: session-based and persistent-based cookies. In addition, we may permit certain third party cookies to be placed on our Site.

  • Session cookies
    Session cookies exist only during an online session.  They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer.  We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you while you are logged in to the Site.
  • Persistent cookies
    Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer.  We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity.
  • Third party cookies
    We may also engage third parties, such as WebTrends and Google Analytics, to track and analyze non-personally identifiable site data.  We use the data collected by such third parties to help us administer and improve the quality of the Site and to analyze usage.  We do not provide these third parties with any personal information that we have collected about you.  However, we do not have access to or control over these third party cookies nor does this Privacy Statement cover such third parties' use of data.
  • Disabling cookies
    Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in future.  The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether; you may also visit for information on disabling cookies.  Certain Site features will not function if you disable cookies.

Third party analytics

We may use automated devices and applications, such as WebTrends and Google Analytics or other means, to evaluate usage of our Site and Services.  We use these tools to help us improve our Site and Services, performance, product and services, and user experiences.  We do not share your personal information with these third parties.

How we secure our site

We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions to protect our Site, and the information we collect, from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.  Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security all of the time.
