Collection of your Personal Information
ThrottleNet collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number. ThrottleNet also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by ThrottleNet. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by ThrottleNet for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the ThrottleNet site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through ThrottleNet public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: ThrottleNet does not read any of your private online communications.
ThrottleNet encourages you to review the privacy statements of Websites you choose to link to from ThrottleNet so that you can understand how those Websites collect, use and share your information. ThrottleNet is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the ThrottleNet and ThrottleNet family of Websites.
Use of your Personal Information
ThrottleNet collects and uses your personal information to operate the ThrottleNet Website and deliver the services you have requested. ThrottleNet also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from ThrottleNet and its affiliates. ThrottleNet may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
ThrottleNet does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. ThrottleNet may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, ThrottleNet may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to ThrottleNet, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
ThrottleNet does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
ThrottleNet keeps track of the Websites and pages our customers visit within ThrottleNet, in order to determine what ThrottleNet services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within ThrottleNet to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
ThrottleNet Websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ThrottleNet or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ThrottleNet; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ThrottleNet, or the public.
The ThrottleNet Website use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize ThrottleNet pages, or register with ThrottleNet site or services, a cookie helps ThrottleNet to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same ThrottleNet Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the ThrottleNet features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ThrottleNet services or Websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
ThrottleNet secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. ThrottleNet secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
ThrottleNet will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. ThrottleNet encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how ThrottleNet is protecting your information.
ThrottleNet welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that ThrottleNet has not adhered to this Statement, please contact ThrottleNet. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
