Privacy for Internet Service Subscribers
IT&E’s affiliated Internet companies and services collect information from Internet subscribers or users as necessary to provide Internet access service. For example, web servers automatically recognize an Internet user’s domain name (such as .com, .edu, etc.), the web page from which a visitor enters our site and how much time a visitor spends on a web page. This information is used – only in the aggregate – to improve our Internet services and sites.
Types of Customer Information
On some web pages users can order products, make requests or register to receive information. Such customer-specific information will be used to fulfill the specific request or purpose for which it was provided. In addition, such voluntarily provided information may be occasionally used to offer products and services that may be of interest. On all subscription pages Internet users have a choice to “opt out”; details are provided on said subscription pages.
Privacy of On-line Personal Information
No personal information obtained on-line is released outside of the family of IT&E companies or by its authorized agent, except with the customer’s permission, as required by law, for safety reasons, or to survey customer satisfaction, under nondisclosure protection. We use the information provided when placing an order to complete that order. We do not share that information with outside parties except as necessary to fulfill the on-line order (e.g., providing the “ship to” address to our shipper.) We may also use that information to offer other products or services of interest. We do not sell customer information to any outside party.
Use of Customer Information
Information collected on-line, especially from those who place an order on-line, may be used within the IT&E family of companies or by an authorized agent to inform the user about services and products of potential interest. Customers might be contacted by telephone, direct mail or e-mail to keep them up-to-date on new products and services offered by IT&E’s family of companies or an authorized agent. web visitors or Internet service subscribers who do not want to hear about new products or services can opt out of any potential use of customer information.
Access by Children
IT&E web sites are not structured to attract children under the age of 13. IT&E’s affiliated companies believe there is no information on its web sites which is inappropriate for viewing by children. Ordering on-line products and services from IT&E’s affiliated companies is limited to adults.
Other Web Sites
The web sites of IT&E and its family of companies may contain links to other web sites. We are not responsible for the content or privacy policies of other sites.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure only appropriate use of information, appropriate physical, electronic and managerial safeguards have been established to secure the information collected on-line.
To improve the service IT&E and its affiliated companies offer, the information obtained about web users may be revised in the future. This privacy statement will be updated to reflect any future developments in Internet business practices.
