Last Updated: March 12, 2020
Valiant Integrated Services, LLC, is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect your privacy. This Privacy Statement applies to your interaction with the Valiant Website located at https:/ www.valiantintegrated.com (our “Website”) and Valiant’s LinkedIn account (“our Official Social Media Account”). This Privacy Statement does not apply to the Website and practices of third parties to which certain Valiant Websites may link.
For purposes of this Privacy Statement, “personal information” means information from or about you that identifies you directly and information that is associated with you and thus could potentially identify you, including when combined with other information from or about you.
Valiant is a U.S. based government contractor with international offices and international customers, suppliers and vendors. Its business activities are related to the provision of services and/or supplies not the marketing of personal data.

In addition, we may transfer such personal information to third-party service providers and business partners, in the U.S. and in other countries, to the extent necessary to support Valiant’s business activities or comply with applicable law.
