Providing us with PII about yourself is voluntary, and you can always choose not to provide certain information. However, if you do not provide such information we may not be able to provide you with our Service.

Such usage information includes information about how our visitors use and navigate our Website.

When you pay to use the Service using a credit card, you will be required to enter your credit card number, expiration date, security code and zip code.

Whenever you give us sensitive information, we will take commercially reasonable steps to protect the information during transmission. In addition, we maintain a vulnerability management program, strong access measures to sensitive information, and an information security policy in order to further protect your sensitive information.

Accordingly, we do not sell, trade, or share your CPNI outside of our family of companies except to companies authorized to offer our products or services or to perform functions on our behalf, unless authorized by you or required by law.

Generally, we can use your CPNI to offer additional communications services to you, and for billing and collections purposes. We can also disclose your CPNI for legal or regulatory reasons, including in response to subpoenas and court orders. We can also use CPNI to investigate crime or fraud, and to prevent or remedy violations of our Terms and Conditions of Use, unlawful use of our network or services, or violations of the rights of our other customers.
