The privacy of our customers and affiliates is important to us. Therefore:
Subscribers are asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for TalcoSoft services including name, postal address, email address, telephone number, and billing information (such as a credit card number). In addition, to register a domain name, Subscribers are asked to provide this information for the registrant, administrative contact, technical contact and billing contact of the domain name (collectively, "Domain Name Registration Information"), for submission to the appropriate domain registry or registration database. Subscribers may also be asked to complete an online form that collects information about demographics, product usage and preferences, along with other information that will help us improve our products and services.
We may collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our site, subscribe to the newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address, mailing address, phone number. Users may, however, visit our Site anonymously. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personally identification information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities.
We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.
We collect the Business Information necessary to enable us to respond to your requests for our products and services and to send you information regarding our products and services from time to time. Since most of the users of our products and Sites are doing so in their capacity as employees or companies, most Business Information we collect will be in that capacity (rather than information about you individually, such as your personal tastes, etc.). For these purposes, we have defined "Business Information" as any information that identifies or may identify a company or an individual contact at a company or that allows others to contact a company or an individual contact at a company. When you visit the Sites, you may be asked to submit information such as email address, company name, address, phone number, your product version, and/or areas of interest. We may also ask you where you heard about our company or products, or for other information that will help us understand more about your needs or help us process your requests for information. In addition, we collect credit card and related payment information when you order products, services, or support plans online. Our information collection and use practices are described in more detail below:
With the exception of other members of the Endurance corporate family and trusted business partners who work with or on behalf of TalcoSoft, and are subject to specific confidentiality agreements, TalcoSoft will not provide or sell to any third party your personal information and will keep all Subscriber information confidential, subject to the following:
Upon registration for TalcoSoft services, certain Subscriber information may be transferred to trusted affiliated or unaffiliated third parties that help TalcoSoft provide certain services or that provide certain services on TalcoSoft 's behalf. For example, Subscriber information may be transferred to TalcoSoft 's affiliated registrar, FastDomain (WHOIS Domain Name Registration Information), or to unaffiliated third parties that help TalcoSoft provide email services or SSL certifications.
Some services are offered or promoted in conjunction with a TalcoSoft partner or sponsor. For example, TalcoSoft may partner with other corporate affiliates of Endurance or with trusted non-affiliated partners for co-promotions of a particular product or service. TalcoSoft may share certain Subscriber contact information but no billing information with TalcoSoft 's partner or sponsor in order to provide the relevant services or to run the promotion. If TalcoSoft shares Subscriber information with partners and sponsors, TalcoSoft requires that they maintain the Subscriber information in confidence, and use the information solely for purposes of providing the services or carrying out the agreed upon promotion.
TalcoSoft does not share personally identifiable information about individual users with advertisers. TalcoSoft may display online advertisements and share aggregated and non-identifying information about Subscribers collected through the registration process or through online surveys and promotions with certain advertisers. This aggregated and non-identifying information may be used to deliver tailored advertisements. For example, an advertiser may tell TalcoSoft the audience it wants to reach (e.g., males between 25 and 55 years of age) and provide TalcoSoft with an advertisement tailored to that audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information collected by TalcoSoft, TalcoSoft may then display the advertisement to the intended audience.
In addition to sharing survey information with service providers confidentially as described above, TalcoSoft may share aggregated, non-personally identifying information obtained from customer surveys within the Endurance corporate family or with third parties.
TalcoSoft will respond to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes, and will utilize Subscriber information as necessary to establish or exercise TalcoSoft 's legal rights or defend against legal claims. Additionally, TalcoSoft will share information to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations or suspected violations of TalcoSoft 's Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.
In certain jurisdictions or pursuant to the rules of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") or certain registries, Domain Name Registration Information has to be made available and accessible to the public through a "WHOIS" search. The WHOIS database is a publicly accessible database that lists the Domain Name Registration Information for a particular domain name, the name server(s) to which the domain name points, and the domain name's creation and expiration date. The Domain Name Registration Information you provide is hosted by TalcoSoft or a third party service provider and is made available to the public through WHOIS searches. TalcoSoft may deposit your Domain Name Registration Information with a third-party escrow provider to comply with ICANN requirements. At times, Subscribers may receive solicitations that result from searches of the publicly available WHOIS database by other companies or individuals. Any such solicitations or SPAM do not come from TalcoSoft and TalcoSoft does not control the use of WHOIS information by third parties.
When TalcoSoft is threatened with suit by a third party, or any other legal action is brought to TalcoSoft 's attention involving TalcoSoft based on the anonymity of a domain name, TalcoSoft may seek assurance from you, the customer, concerning your promise to indemnify TalcoSoft and written confirmation that you have contacted the complainant and made your contact information available to the complainant. Failure to promptly provide these assurances may be considered by TalcoSoft to be a breach of your agreement with TalcoSoft and may result in deactivation of your domain name and disclosure of your contact information so that any allegations of infringement or other wrongdoing may be directly resolved between you and the complainant.
If you provide any feedback on any of our products or services to us, we may use such feedback for any purpose, provided we will not associate such feedback with your Personal Information.
By using this Site, you signify your acceptance of this policy and terms of service. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
