Scope of Policy
Covered Information Collected.
Connectivity may collect the types of Covered Information described in this Section 2. It may also from time to time collect other types of Covered Information. This Section 2 describes some of the ways that Connectivity collects Covered Information and some of the principal uses that Connectivity makes of each type of Covered Information. Connectivity may make other uses of Covered Information and may in any event use any Covered Information in connection with its provision of any Services.
a. IP Address. Like most commercial websites, Connectivity automatically collects each Visitor’s IP address and the web page from which each Visitor navigated to the Connectivity Site or the portion or pages of any Reseller Site at which Users access or receive Services (collectively, the “Site”). Connectivity uses such IP addresses to administer and optimize the Site and to diagnose problems with the Site.
c. Session Data. Connectivity automatically logs information about the connection of each Visitor’s computer to the Internet (“Session Data”). Session Data consists of things such as IP address, operating system and type of browser software being used and the activities conducted by the Visitor while at the Site. An IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet, such as Connectivity’s web servers, know where to send data back to the Visitor, such as the pages of the website the Visitor wishes to view. Connectivity collects Session Data because it helps Connectivity analyze such things as what items Visitors are likely to click on most, the way Visitors are clicking through the Site, how many Visitors are navigating to various pages on the Site, how long Visitors are staying at the Site and how often they are visiting. Connectivity also records the URLs of the websites Visitors have visited prior to arriving at the Site and the URLs of the destinations Visitors visit after leaving the Site. Collecting Session Data also helps Connectivity diagnose problems with its servers and lets it better administer its systems. Third-party advertising companies may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements.
d. Information Regarding Users. If a Visitor chooses to become a User, that Visitor must provide his or her first and last name, a valid e-mail address, a physical address(es), information regarding a means for paying for the Services and other personally identifiable information. Such information is collected for several reasons, including, but not limited to: (1) personal identification; (2) to allow Connectivity to contact Users for customer service purposes, if necessary; and (3) to allow Connectivity to bill and collect fees for the Services that the User purchases.
No Information from Children
The Site and the Services are intended for use solely by adults. Connectivity does not knowingly collect any Covered Information from or relating to persons who are younger than 18 years of age (“Minors”). Neither the Site nor any of the Services are intended for use by Minors. No Minor is authorized to visit or use the Site or any Services.
No Information from Consumers
The Site and the Services are intended solely for use by businesses. Connectivity does not knowingly collect any Covered Information from or relating to any persons who visit or use the Site or the Services for personal, family or household purposes (“Consumers”). Neither the Site nor any Services are intended for use by Consumers. No Consumer is authorized to visit or use the Site or any Services.
No Confidential Information
Visitors should not submit via the Site or otherwise provide to Connectivity any confidential, proprietary or trade secret information, other than credit card numbers or similar payment-related information and other than information that is clearly and unambiguously designated as proprietary information of such Visitor via a mechanism or process established by Connectivity for that purpose (“Proprietary User Information”).
Use and Disclosure of Covered Information
Connectivity may use Covered Information and disclose Covered Information to third parties in connection with any Services that Connectivity provides and for any other business purpose, including to send marketing or promotional messages or advertisements on behalf of itself or any third party or to allow any third party to do so or in connection with the sale of all or any part of Connectivity’s business. Visitor consents to all such uses and disclosures of Covered Information, including, but not limited to, Covered Information that constitutes personally identifiable information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Connectivity shall not use Proprietary User Information except in connection with the provision of Services and shall not disclose Proprietary User Information except to persons who have agreed to hold such information in confidence and who receive such disclosure in connection with such permitted use of such information or in connection with any sale of all or any part of Connectivity’s business.
No Guarantee of Security
Connectivity does not guarantee the security of any Covered Information (including, without limitation, Proprietary User Information). Connectivity assumes no responsibility to protect any Covered Information from unauthorized disclosure or use or from loss, damage or corruption.
Information Collected by Other Sites
This Policy does not apply to any information collected by websites operated by anyone other than Connectivity (“Third-Part Sites”). That includes Third Party Sites to which Visitors navigate using links located on the Site and/or Third Party Sites operated by businesses with which Connectivity may have a marketing or other relationship. It also includes Third Party Sites on which Connectivity allows use of its trademarks or other intellectual property. Visitors should become familiar with the privacy policies of Third Party Sites before providing any personal information to such sites.
Changes to this Policy.
It is Connectivity’s policy to post any changes it makes to this Policy on this page, with a prominent notice that this Policy has been changed on the home page of the Site and, for Visitors that are Users, by notice to the email address on file for such User and/or to the Reseller that sold the Service to such User, if any. Any such change shall be effective thirty (30) days after such notice, provided that any change may be effective sooner if required by a material change in circumstances beyond Connectivity’s reasonable control, including but not limited to a change in applicable law, or by other exigent circumstances. Visitors are responsible for periodically visiting the Site and this Policy to check for any changes. If any change to this Policy would by its terms apply to Covered Information that constitutes personally identifiable information collected before such change shall have become effective (“Prior Information”), Visitors will have the reasonable opportunity to decline to have such change apply to Prior Information; provided that (i) Connectivity may then delete any such Prior Information from its systems and (ii) Connectivity shall be excused for all purposes from providing any Services and from any requirement or obligation with respect to any Services in connection with which it relies on such deleted Prior Information.
To ask questions or comment about this Policy and Connectivity’s privacy practices, Visitors may contact Connectivity at:
Monday through Friday 9:30a to 4:30p Pacific Standard (California) Time
If a Visitor contacts Connectivity by telephone, such Visitor acknowledges and consents to the recording of such telephone conversations.
