Privacy Policy

Third Generation Internet Services (together with its subsidiaries and affiliates, “Third Generation”) respects the privacy and security of its customers and users of its website. Third Generation strives to provide you with a personalized internet experience that delivers to you the information, products and services that you need. In order to achieve this goal, Third Generation sometimes collects information during your visits to our website. We will not disclose this information to any person or organization outside Third Generation, except as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is not intended to and does not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.

We have prepared this Privacy Policy to enable you to understand which personal identifying information of yours is collected, how and when we might use your information, how we protect your information, who has access to your information, and how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

Information We Collect

Third Generation collects certain information from and about its users three ways: (i) from our web server logs, (ii) with cookies and (iii) directly from the user.

Web server logs

When you visit our website, Third Generation may collect “Non-Personally Identifiable” information to administer the site and analyze its usage, such as but not limited to:

Internet Protocol (“IP”) Address

An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer while using the Internet from which Web servers can automatically identify your computer. Third Generation servers gather your IP address and the webpage from where you linked to our website. Your IP address assists Third Generation in administering and optimizing the website for you, analyzing website usage, and diagnosing problems with the website.

Cookies

Third Generation’s website supports the use of browser cookies. We use cookies to save your preferences and login information as well as provide personalized functionality. You can reject browser cookies at any time by changing your browser’s settings. Please be aware that rejecting cookies may disable some of the functionality of the Third Generation’s website.

Personal Information

On some pages of our website, users can register to purchase products or services, receive personalized content and participate in surveys or forums. When you register, Third Generation may ask you for some “Personal Information” which may include, but may not be limited to, your full name, postal address, phone number and email address. We may then contact you with information about Third Generation products and services.

If you purchase products or services, we may also request financial information such as credit card or bank account information. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the products and services you purchased. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider.

As a security measure and to ensure that our website and computer network remain available to all customers, Third Generation may use software programs to monitor network traffic or to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. These software programs may also collect information regarding your use of our website and computer network.

You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide technical support assistance and information to you. For example, we may collect personal information from you (such as an e-mail address, system information and problem descriptions) in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting. If you choose to correspond with us through electronic communication (e.g. email, online chat or instant messaging), we may retain a copy of the electronic communication together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.

Domain Registration

In certain jurisdictions or pursuant to the rules of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") or certain registries, the contact information you provide to register a domain name ("Domain Name Registration Information") has to be made available and accessible to the public through a "WHOIS" search. The WHOIS database is a publicly accessible database that lists the Domain Name Registration Information for a particular domain name, the name server(s) to which the domain name points, and the domain name's creation and expiration date. The Domain Name Registration Information you provide is hosted by us or a third party service provider and is made available to the public through WHOIS searches. At times, Subscribers may receive solicitations that result from searches of the publicly available WHOIS database by other companies or individuals. Any such solicitations or SPAM do not come from us and we do not control the use of WHOIS information by third parties. We may also deposit your Domain Name Registration Information with a third-party escrow provider to comply with ICANN requirements.

How We Use Your Information

Third Generation uses the information we collect to notify you about your account and changes to services or terms and conditions governing your use of our website, products and services.

Third Generation may also provide aggregate information about our customers, this website’s traffic patterns and related website usage information to our affiliates and reputable third parties, but this information will not include personally identifying data. We take measures to select product or service providers that are responsible and afford similar privacy protections to their customers. However, we do not make any representations about the practices and policies of these companies.

How We Protect Your Information

Third Generation uses technical security measures to prevent the loss, misuse, alteration or unauthorized disclosure of information under our control.

When we ask customers or users to provide financial information (such as a credit card number) that data is protected using Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) technology. However, please note that electronic communication (e.g. email, online chat or instant messaging) that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you in advance that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as financial information or passwords to us through unsecured electronic communication.

Access to Your Information

Both Personal Information and Non-Personally Identifiable information may be transferred to a third party:

Third Party Sites

Third Generation’s website includes links, ad banners, etc. to other websites which may or may not be affiliated with Third Generation. Notwithstanding any affiliation, Third Generation does NOT control and is NOT responsible for the information and/or content you provide to and transactions you engage in with such third party sites. Please be aware that the operators of these other websites may collect and use different information about you that is not consistent with Third Generation’s Privacy Policy.

Content Placed In Public

Some pages of Third Generation’s website may make chat rooms, forums, message boards, news groups or instant messaging available to you. Please remember that any information disclosed in these areas is public. You should exercise caution when disclosing Personal Information in these areas. Don’t disclose information in these public forums that might be considered confidential – such as financial information, social security numbers, passwords or email addresses. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose Personal Information on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas, that information and any substantive information disclosed in the communication can be collected and used by third parties. This could result in unsolicited messages from others who post on such sites and are beyond the control of Third Generation.
