North Tone Systems LLC (“North Tone Systems”, “we”, “our” and “us”) provides this Privacy Policy to inform users about our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use, security, and disclosure of personally identifiable information received from users of our website found at www.northtone.com (“our website”). Please keep in mind that your use of our website means that you accept and agree to our Privacy Policy. Please do not use our website if you do not accept our Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time by North Tone Systems by posting an updated version of the Privacy Policy to our website.

Who We Are

North Tone Systems offers a variety of Internet resources, products and services, which include website design and hosting, web-based email, server space leasing and dedicated server hosting (all of which are collectively called our “Services”), to our customers and their subsidiaries, affiliates, employees and parent or legal guardian (“you” or “your”).

Our Commitment to Protecting Your Information

We take the protection and proper use of your personal information seriously. We respect your privacy, and take great care to safeguard information in our possession. Your preferences for use of your information are our highest priority. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, North Tone Systems uses commercially appropriate procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. However, we have put in place various security procedures as set out in this Privacy Policy. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

How We Use Your Information

We use information you provide to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. We do not share customer information (including e-mail addresses) with any third party unless approved by you or required by law. Even within our family of companies, we restrict access to your information to those individuals who need it to provide you with services. Except as required by law, your permission is always secured first should we ever share your information with third parties that are not acting on our behalf or governed by our Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

We may collect personal information in three ways – information you give us, information collected through web server logs, and information collected through cookies.

Information you give us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website; provide for your account or for billing purposes; give us as part of your application for our Services; communicate to us by phone, email, or otherwise; or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of our Services and/or website. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, billing and providing our Services to you, resolving disputes or collecting fees, preventing potentially prohibited or illegal activities, improving our Services and/or website, and communicating with you.

Web server logs: We record and save information about you from our web server logs such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the time day you visited and your browser type. This information is used to verify our records and to provide better service to you.

Cookies: In order to offer and provide you with personalized services, we may use “cookies” to store and help track your information. A cookie is a piece of data that identifies you as a unique user. We will not disclose our cookies to third parties except as required by a valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order. Note: Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies. You should be aware that some parts of our website and Services may not function properly if you refuse cookies.

Choice

We will not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first letting you know and offering you a choice. As previously stated, your permission is always secured first should we ever share your information with third parties that are not acting on our behalf or governed by our Privacy Policy.

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy

We do not seek to collect or maintain information on our website from those we know are under 18, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
