WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT
To make your experience more convenient and to more effectively provide the Services, we may collect the following personal information:
Other information collected that could directly or indirectly identify you
For example, we collect personal information from visitors when they register to join a newsletter list or inquire about a domain name. With that said, much of the information we collect is aggregated or statistical data about how individuals use our Services and is not linked to any personal information.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION
We believe in both minimizing the personal information we collect and limiting its use and purpose to only that for which we have been given permission, as necessary to deliver the Services or interact with you, or as we might be required or permitted for legal compliance or other lawful purposes.
More specifically, we use the personal information we collect for the following purposes:
To communicate with you.
To understand and analyze your use of the Services
To improve and optimize the performance of the Services and our websites
To detect fraud and identify any security risks, errors, or needed enhancements to the Services and our websites
We may also monitor and track information such as visitor usage patterns of our websites and email engagement such as open rates and click-throughs. We compile this information into a statistical aggregate, which we use for internal purposes such as improving our Services and member communications.
We may contact you directly or through a third-party service provider regarding Services you have signed up for or purchased from us, such as necessary to deliver transactional or service-related communications. We may also contact you with offers for additional services we think you will find valuable if you give us consent, or where allowed based upon legitimate interests.
We may share your personal information with affiliated companies within our corporate family, with third parties with which we have partnered to allow you to integrate their services into our own Services, and with trusted third-party providers as necessary for them to perform services on our behalf, such as processing payments, serving advertisements, conducting surveys, performing analysis of our Services, and communicating with you, such as by way of email delivery. We only share your personal information as necessary for any third party to provide the Services or as needed on our behalf. These third parties are subject to strict data processing terms and conditions and are prohibited from utilizing, sharing or retaining your personal information for any purpose other than as directed.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
Our websites may provide links to other third-party websites. While we make efforts to choose our links carefully, we cannot take any responsibility for the content of linked websites, or for the privacy policies of websites we link to. Since we do not control these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these third-party websites prior to any use.
HOW WE SECURE AND STORE YOUR DATA
We follow generally accepted standards to store and protect the personal information we collect, including utilization of encryption where feasible and appropriate. We retain personal information only for as long as necessary to provide the Services you have requested and thereafter for a variety of legitimate legal or business purposes, such as in situations (a) when mandated by law, contract, or similar obligations applicable to our business; (b) for preserving, resolving, defending or enforcing our legal and/or contractual rights; or (c) as needed to maintain adequate and accurate business and financial records.
ACCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you have any questions about the security or retention of your personal information, or to access, update, or delete your personal information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you make a request to delete your personal information and it is no longer necessary for the Services you have purchased, the request will be honored to the extent it is no longer necessary for any Services purchased or required for our legitimate business purposes or legal and/or record-keeping requirements. Whenever we process data for these purposes we will ensure that we always keep your personal information rights in high regard. And please note that any changes or removal of your personal information from our systems may affect our ability to carry out tasks for your benefit.
Our Services are only available those over the age of 18 and are not targeted to or intended to be consumed by individuals under the age of 18. If you know of or have reason to believe anyone under the age of 18 has provided us with any personal information, please contact us.

Deny you goods or services
Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties
