For the purposes of this Agreement, the following definitions apply and any undefined terms have the meaning ascribed to them in the context in which they are used in this Agreement:
A. Personally-Identifiable Information:
Critihost typically receives specific data about its website visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information, purchase or enroll for services, open a customer support inquiry ticket, provide resume information for employment opportunities, or send us e-mail. Of course, some of these activities require that you give us information, such as when you make a purchase, use a credit card to pay for services, submit your resume, or request certain types of information. When you provide personally-identifiable information to Critihost through one of our websites, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. In most cases, you will be given the opportunity to select whether you do, or do not, want Critihost to use this information for additional purposes.
Critihost will not, however, sell or trade your personally-identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to the visitor or others. On those Critihost sites where you may provide Critihost with credit card or other ordering information via the web, Critihost protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary web-based security and encryption protocols, examples of which include Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) or 3-D Secure.
Absent any instructions from you, Critihost may use information you provide to inform you about additional services and products offered by the Critihost family of companies, Critihost authorized agents, and other goods and services providers with whom Critihost has relationships and whose offerings might be of interest to you.
Supplementation of Information
In order to provide certain services to you, we may on occasion supplement the personally identifiable information you submit to us with information from third party sources (e.g., information from our strategic partners, service providers, or the United States Postal Service). We do this to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our products and services to you, and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
Critihost customers control how and when we contact you by logging into the Client Center and changing your preferences. Critihost reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about your Critihost services. If you are not a Critihost customer and wish not to be emailed about our services, please click the unsubscribe link in the email you have received.
B. Non Personally-Identifiable (Generic) Information:
In general, Critihost gathers some generic information automatically. Generic information does not reveal the identity of the visitor. It usually includes information about the Internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors, and the Critihost sites visited. Critihost gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and website needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies, including “cookies” (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about Critihost services). Critihost does not combine information collected in this way with any personally-identifiable information.
You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it; this may however reduce functionality of certain website features such as the order system and the Client Center.
C. Your Critihost hosted website, server, bulletin boards, forum, Third-Party Sites:
On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Critihost will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and nonproprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Critihost assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.
D. Exceptions and Limitations:
Notwithstanding the foregoing and in compliance with applicable laws, Critihost (i) cooperates fully with state, local, and federal officials in any investigation relating to any content (including personal or private electronic communications transmitted to Critihost) or purported unlawful activities of any user of the Service, and (ii) takes reasonable measures to protect its proprietary rights. For the limited purposes of accomplishing such cooperation and measures and in compliance with applicable laws, Critihost may be required to disclose personally identifiable information. In addition, Critihost may elect to monitor the areas of communication of any kind (i) to satisfy any law, regulation, or government request; (ii) if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate Critihost; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of Critihost or others. In connection with the potential sale or transfer of any of its interest in critihost.com and other sites owned by the company, Critihost reserves the right to sell or transfer your information (including, but not limited to name, address information, and other information you provided to Critihost) to a third party that (i) concentrates its business in communication products or services; (ii) agrees to be Critihost’s successor in interest with regard to the maintenance and protection of information collected and maintained by Critihost; and (iii) agrees to the obligations of this policy statement.
