What personally identifiable information does POE Hosting collect from me?
Some personal information is gathered when you signup for our services. This information is kept confidential and is not shared with any third party (except for investigation into violation of our Terms of Service (TOS) or Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) -- this does NOT include payment details). All credit card or instant check payment information is processed securely by PayPal or Authorize.net. These companies do not share your personal banking or card information with us. They only share you contact information and if your payment was valid. Your credit card or checking account information never appears on our servers.
What are cookies and how does POE Hosting use them?
With whom does POE Hosting share my information?
As a general rule, POE Hosting will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. Please see the TOS or AUP for each of our products and services for more detailed information about how your personal information may be shared.
POE Hosting may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating POE Hosting's TOS or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) POE Hosting's rights or property, other POE Hosting users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. POE Hosting may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.
What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?
Your POE Hosting Account Information and POE Hosting Profile are password-protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information. You may edit your POE Hosting Account Information by using your POE Hosting login and password.
We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. POE Hosting will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of your POE Hosting account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, POE Hosting cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
What else should I know about my privacy?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
