Privacy

FirstSpot™ is committed to providing its online users with services and information in an efficient and secure manner. This privacy policy explains what personal information is collected on firstspot.net and other websites hosted by FirstSpot, Inc. (the "FirstSpot™ Web sites") from users of FirstSpot™'s various online services, how that information is used and what measures FirstSpot takes to safeguard its users' privacy.

What personal information is collected on the FirstSpot™ Web sites?

There is no general registration requirement for users of the FirstSpot Web sites. Instead, we only collect information as needed to provide you with a particular service such as FirstSpot's network usage. Depending on the service you register for, we may collect some or all of the following information: name, e-mail address, street address, telephone and facsimile numbers, employer, position, client profile, hardware profile and categories of interest. Credit card information is collected if paying for a service.

How does FirstSpot use the information collected on the FirstSpot™ Web sites?

Information about individual users collected on the FirstSpot™ Web sites is used for internal business purposes, including customizing services, contacting members regarding usage, and responding to requests for information. On occasion, FirstSpot™ or one of its members or affiliates may also use this information to inform you of news, service upgrades or new services or products that may be of particular interest to you.

FirstSpot™ tracks aggregate anonymous statistics regarding usage of the web site and provides this anonymous information to members, affiliates, advertisers and for other lawful purposes.

Does FirstSpot™ provide personal information collected on the FirstSpot™ Web sites to third parties?

First Spot™ does not sell, trade or rent personal information collected online and will not knowingly disclose any individual personal information to third parties except as follows:
  1. In order to provide you with requested services, FirstSpot™ may provide login or other necessary information to affiliated companies. For example, if you register for the virtual storage or email services, FirstSpot™ may provide your login information to our service partner to allow your service to function correctly;
  2. When disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with the rights (including property rights) or safety of other users or third parties or of FirstSpot™; and
  3. When First Spot™ reasonably believes that disclosure is required by law or to comply with legal process served on FirstSpot™.
How can I change or update the information I provide at the FirstSpot™ Web sites?

Where user profile information is collected and stored in order to provide you with requested services, FirstSpot™ offers you the opportunity to change or update your profile information at any time by emailing your changes to support@firstspot.net

Do the FirstSpot™ Web sites use cookies?

Yes, however FirstSpot™ only uses cookies to facilitate functions at the FirstSpot™ Web sites and does not record or store any information about your movements on the Internet outside the FirstSpot™ Web sites. Please note that if you click on a link to a third-party Web site from one of the FirstSpot™ Web sites, the linked-to site may have different policies and practices with regard to cookies and FirstSpot™ has no control over and is not responsible for such policies or practices. You should always consult the privacy policy governing any Web site you visit on the Internet for complete information about their policies and practices.

What measures does FirstSpot™ take to safeguard its online users' privacy?

Information you submit at a FirstSpot™ Web site upon registration for specific services is password-protected so that the only parties who have access to the information besides FirstSpot™ and its agents and affiliates are the member entity and its employees. Information submitted using FirstSpot™ Web sites is further protected by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information during transmission. In order to protect the integrity of the password system, members should refrain from disclosing passwords and immediately change any passwords that may have been compromised. FirstSpot™ will never ask you for your password by e-mail, so members and their employees should not respond to unsolicited e-mail requests asking for password information even if such requests appear to be from FirstSpot™.

Please be advised that no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. FirstSpot™ is committed to protecting users' personal information, but cannot guarantee or warrant the security of this information when it is sent to or through the FirstSpot™ Web sites. Transmission of such information is therefore at the risk of the user.

Privacy policy updates

This policy will be updated from time to time as necessary to add new FirstSpot™ Web sites to its coverage or to address new services and functions. FirstSpot™ will provide you with notice of any changes or updates to this policy at the home page of each of the FirstSpot™ Web sites.
