Under your employment obligations from the U.S. government, you are responsible for ensuring you do not provide or disclose any data which is prohibited.

  • Your use of Vet Connect, Google+ and your Google Profile are subject to the Google Terms of Service listed at http://www.google.com/accounts/TOS and your use of Google+ is also subject to any other terms and policies posted on that service, http://www.google.com/intl/en/+/policy/.
  • The Profile you create in Vet Connect is PUBLIC to other logged in users of the Vet Connect service. By creating a profile, you are allowing Google to make your profile photo, name, and any supporting information you input directly into the Vet Connect service, such as your dates of service or locations of deployment and stations, public to other users of the tool. Additionally, your Vet Connect profile will contain a link to the Google+ profile corresponding to the email account you use to log in to your Vet Connect profile. Should you wish to remove your Vet Connect profile, you may do so at any time by clicking on ‘edit profile’ and selecting ‘delete.’

Data that you add directly in your Vet Connect profile through the Vet Connect service will not be a part of your Google+ profile. If you delete your profile on Vet Connect, any data stored directly in Vet Connect will be deleted within 30 days, but more likely within 24 hours.
