Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy while you are connected to the Internet. This policy outlines how 1st handles information you to us, as well as facts you need to know to protect your privacy during your online experience. We hope that this policy demonstrates our commitment to you and your experiences on the Internet.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. Remember that no network systems or computers are completely secure. We do not guarantee the security of data on the Internet, including “secure” servers. Use your own common sense. In many cases, the same rules that apply to everyday life apply to the Internet.

1st Customer Information

1st collects and stores customer information in many ways:

as part of a customer’s registration for the 1st Network;
when we issue your user login names, and the passwords;
when you purchase other goods or services from 1st through our Web Site.
We will use the information for the following purposes:
for accounting and/or billing purposes;
to resolve email and/or other system errors;
to verify your identity for accessing member-only areas of the 1st Network;
to notify our customers of important notices or to send our newsletters or other communications;
to enforce our Acceptable Use Polices
1st will not sell, trade, or disclose to third parties your customer information derived from the registration for or use of an 1st online service including customer names and addresses without your consent. When 1st uses others to perform services on its behalf, 1st will ensure that the company protects your customer information consistent with this Policy. If 1st includes your name and any other customer information in a customer directory that 1st creates from information we receive as an online service provider, we will give you the opportunity to opt out of participation in that directory. Business directories that 1st creates may, however, contain information obtained from other sources.

Customer Choice:
You may choose not to receive direct marketing communications from 1st in connection with 1st online services. You may communicate that choice by e-mail, by mail, or by telephone.

Usage Data:
1st servers automatically gather information about which sites customers visit on the Internet and which pages are visited within a 1st Web Site. We do not use that information except in the aggregate.

1st has implemented technology and security features and strict policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of your customer information from unauthorized access or improper use, and we will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available.

E-mail Contents:
We will not read or disclose to third parties private e-mail communications that are transmitted using 1st services except as required to operate the service or as otherwise authorized by law.

Improper Conduct:
1st may also use customer identifiable information to investigate and help prevent potentially unlawful activity or activity that threatens the network or otherwise violates the customer agreement for that service.

Please Remember That You May Become the Target of Spam as a Result of Electronically Registering a Product, Signing Up For Product Updates or Otherwise Opting in to an E-Mail list.
