|Because protecting your privacy is very important to ET Web Hosting,
we operate our website under the following guidelines to safeguard your personally
identifiable information. |
ET Web Hostings policies and procedures for
handling customer information have been created with the understanding that Internet
technologies are still evolving and that Internet business methods are continuing
to evolve to meet the needs and opportunities of the changing technologies. As
a result, ET Web Hostings policies and procedures are subject to change
at any time.
In the course of serving its customers, ET Web
Hosting acquires, stores and transmits customer communications and information
that customers may regard as private or sensitive. Some of this information -
such as the customer's name, address, telephone number, and credit card data -
is provided to ET Web Hosting by its customers in order to establish service.
Other information - such as the customer's account status, choice of services,
and customer logs - is created and maintained by ET Web Hosting in the normal
pieces of information that a web site can store in a designated file on a user's
computer. In addition, ET Web Hosting may store customers' electronic mail and
other communications as a necessary incident to the transmission and delivery
of those communications.
ET Web Hosting will protect the confidentiality of its customers' information,
account information and personal communications to the fullest extent possible
and consistent with the law and the legitimate interests of ET Web Hosting, its
partners, its employees and other customers of ET Web Hostings services.
To protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of information that is collected from
customers, ET Web Hosting has appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial
procedures in place.
ET Web Hosting may use customer information to provide its customers
with system information or information about new or upgraded products or services.
Customers may modify their personal information
by sending an e-mail to ET Web Hosting customer support.
Domain name customers,
who have registered a domain name with ET Web Hosting and wish to change the Technical
Contact from ET Web Hosting to another company, may send a request to customer
support. It is important to note that customer domain name registration information
is made publicly available in the registry of domain names.
From time to time, ET
Web Hosting may send its customers information about various products and services
that may be of interest. We will not send you information of this type without
specifically allowing you to "opt out" of such mailings. You can opt
out by sending an e-mail to customer support.
ET Web Hosting
may offer interactive forums, such as message boards and chat. ET Web Hosting
users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information
to other users or to third parties on the ET Web Hosting system, through e-mail,
or outside of the ET Web Hosting system, that information can be collected and
used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other members or third
parties. While ET Web Hosting strives to protect your personal information, ET
Web Hosting cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit
to ET Web Hosting, and you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy
of any passwords or other account information.
ET Web Hosting
may provide links to its partners and other Internet sites. These sites have separate
data and privacy practices independent of ET Web Hosting, and ET Web Hosting disclaims
any responsibility or liability for their policies or actions.
ET Web Hosting will not
otherwise disclose its customers' personal and account information unless ET Web
Hosting has reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to
identify, make contact with, or bring legal action against someone who may be
causing harm or interfering with the rights or property of ET Web Hosting, ET
Web Hostings customers, or others, or where ET Web Hosting has a good faith
belief that the law requires such disclosure.
ET Web Hosting also will
not, except for reasons stated below, disclose to third parties the contents of
any electronic mail or other electronic communications that ET Web Hosting stores
or transmits for its customers. The circumstances under which ET Web Hosting will
disclose such electronic customer communications are when:
- it is
necessary in order to provide service to the customer;
- it is necessary
to protect the legitimate interests of ET Web Hosting and its customers;
is required to cooperate with interception orders, warrants, or other legal process
that ET Web Hosting determines in its sole discretion to be valid and enforceable;
is necessary to provide to a law enforcement agency when the contents are inadvertently
obtained by ET Web Hosting and appear to pertain to the commission of a crime.
ET Web Hosting disclaims any intention to censor, edit or engage
in ongoing review or surveillance of communications stored on or transmitted through
its facilities by customers or others. ET Web Hosting will, however, review, delete
or block access to communications that may harm ET Web Hosting, its customers
or third parties. The grounds on which ET Web Hosting may take such action include,
but are not limited to, actual or potential violations of ET Web Hostings
Acceptable Use Policy.
