Valnet Revised June 8, 2018
Valnet respects the privacy of every individual who visits its Web sites and uses its services. This privacy statement provides notice of the standards and terms under which Valnet protects the privacy of information supplied by customers and visitors to sites on the World Wide Web that are owned and operated by Valnet, including home. valnet.net. This privacy statement provides notice of our information collection practices and of the ways in which your information may be used. This policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically to review this information.
2. PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Valnet typically receives specific data about its Web site visitors or Customers only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors or Customers request information, purchase or enroll for services, provide resume information for employment opportunities, or send us an 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 or electronic payment service to pay for Valnet services, submit your resume, or request certain types of information. We collect the following types of information about you:
• Name • Company
• Postal Address • City
• State • Country
• Zipcode or postal code • Email address
• Telephone number • Fax number
• Internet domain name
• Credit/debit card number
• Cardholder name
• Card number
• Type of card
• Expiration date
• Security code
• Checking Account Number
• Bank Routing Number
• Banking Entity
• Internet Protocol (IP) address for the fraud-prevention purpose
When you provide personally identifiable information to Valnet, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. However, Valnet reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about your Valnet services. Valnet occasionally sends service communication emails through valnet.net. The service communication emails are essential to our registering you for service and to our continuing provision of services to you. Therefore, you may not opt-out of receiving these email messages. Valnet will not sell, trade, or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to any person. On those Valnet sites where you may provide Valnet with a credit card, electronic payment service, or other ordering information via the Web, Valnet protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary Web-based security and encryption protocols, an example of which is the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Valnet will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and nonproprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Valnet assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.
3. NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE (GENERIC) INFORMATION
In general, Valnet 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 Valnet sites visited. Valnet gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and Web site needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies, including “cookies” (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about Valnet services). Valnet does not combine information collected in this way with any personally identifiable information. You can set your Web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it. However, refusing some cookies may make it impossible to use or navigate the Valnet website properly.

For the limited purposes of accomplishing such cooperation and measures and in compliance with applicable laws, Valnet may be required to disclose personally identifiable information. In addition, Valnet 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 Valnet’s business; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of Valnet or others.

In connection with the potential or actual sale or transfer of any of its interest in valnet.net, and other sites owned by Valnet, and any of the assets or stock of the company, Valnet reserves the right to sell or transfer your information (including, but not limited to, name, address information, and other information you provided to Valnet) to a third party that (i) concentrates its business in Internet Access Services; (ii) agrees to be Valnet successor in interest with regard to the maintenance and protection of information collected and maintained by Valnet; and (iii) agrees to the obligations of this privacy statement. To the extent it is practicable to do so, this paragraph shall also apply in the event of any bankruptcy proceedings involving Valnet.
