Privacy Statement

Privacy Statement

In the course of serving its customers, Advantage 24 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 Advantage 24 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 Advantage 24 in the normal course of providing service. Advantage 24 also uses cookies, which are small pieces of information that a web site can store in a designated file on a user's computer for various reasons. For example, Advantage 24 uses cookies on the landing pages of products sold online which record the customer information that is required on the order form. This information is then forwarded to an internal sales tracking database within Advantage 24. In addition, Advantage 24 may store customers' electronic mail and other communications as a necessary incident to the transmission and delivery of those communications.

This Privacy Policy applies only to Advantage 24's treatment of data collected online, and does not apply to any offline data collection practices or to the data collection practices of any third parties, Advantage 24 customers, or any entities affiliated with Advantage 24. Also, please note that use of Advantage 24's website constitutes acceptance of this Privacy Policy.

Advantage 24's 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, Advantage 24's policies and procedures are subject to change. Changes will be posted to the website and users agree to be bound by those changes.

Data Security

Advantage 24 protects the confidentiality of its customers' information, account information and personal communications. To secure the information collected online, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure only appropriate use of information that is collected from customers, Advantage 24 has implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. Further, Advantage 24 requires that employees keep customer information confidential. Advantage 24 cautions its customers and website visitors that no medium of communication, including the Internet, is entirely secure. Accordingly, Advantage 24 cannot be responsible for loss, corruption or unauthorized acquisition and use of personal information provided to our website, or for any damages resulting from such loss, corruption, unauthorized acquisition or unauthorized use.

How is customer information used?

Advantage 24 may share customer information with selected partners, for example, to provide customers with information about products which might be of interest to the customer or to enable the customer to take advantage of special partner programs. Advantage 24 may also use customer information to provide its customers with system information or information about new or upgraded products. In the case of a business transaction, including but not limited to, a merger or sale of a portion of Advantage 24's assets, customer information will likely be part of the assets transferred. In this event, Advantage 24 will attempt to notify impacted customers that their information has been transferred.

Opt Out & Modifications

Customers may opt out of receiving notices of new or upgraded products from Advantage 24 and Advantage 24 partners by filling out this on-line No Solicitation Request form. However, customers may not opt out of receiving information from Advantage 24 which is essential for maintaining or updating customers' accounts or system information.

Customers may access and modify their personal information by contacting the appropriate Advantage 24 account manager.

Domain name customers that have registered a domain name with Advantage 24 and wish to change the Technical Contact from Advantage 24 to another company, may do so by contacting their account manager. It is important to note that customer domain name registration information is made publicly available in the registry of domain names.

Disclosure of customer information and communications

Advantage 24 will not otherwise disclose its customers' personal and account information unless Advantage 24 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 Advantage 24, Advantage 24's customers, or others, or where Advantage 24 has a good faith belief that the law requires such disclosure.

Advantage 24 also will not, except for reasons stated below, disclose to third parties the contents of any electronic mail or other electronic communications that Advantage 24 stores or transmits for its customers. The circumstances under which Advantage 24 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 Advantage 24 and its customers;

it is required to cooperate with interception orders, warrants, or other legal process that Advantage 24 determines in its sole discretion to be valid and enforceable; and

it is necessary to provide to a law enforcement agency when the contents are inadvertently obtained by Advantage 24 and appear to pertain to the commission of a crime.

Advantage 24 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. Advantage 24 will, however, review, delete or block access to communications that may harm Advantage 24, its customers or third parties. The grounds on which Advantage 24 may take such action include, but are not limited to, actual or potential violations of Advantage 24's Acceptable Use Policy.
