What information does Imagine Communications collect and how is it used?
Imagine Communications typically receives specific data about its website visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information, purchase or enroll for services, provide resume information for employment opportunities, or send us 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 to pay for services, submit your resume, or request certain types of information. When you provide personally-identifiable information to Imagine Communications through one of our websites, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. In most cases, you will be given the opportunity to select whether you do, or do not, want Imagine Communications to use this information for additional purposes. Absent any instructions from you, Imagine Communications may also use information you provide to inform you about additional services and products offered by the Imagine Communications family of companies, Imagine Communications authorized agents, and other goods and services providers with whom Imagine Communications has relationships and whose offerings might be of interest to you. Subject to the Exceptions and Limitations set forth in Section D, below, Imagine Communications will not sell or trade your personally- identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to the visitor or others. On those Imagine Communications sites where you may provide Imagine Communications with credit card or other ordering information via the web, Imagine Communications protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary web-based security and encryption protocols, examples of which include Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Secure Electronic Transaction (SET). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Imagine Communications will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Imagine Communications assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure. Please refer to the Exceptions and Limitations set forth in Section D, below, which may modify or expand upon the provisions set forth in this paragraph.
B. Non Personally-Identifiable (Generic) Information:
In general, Imagine Communications 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 Imagine Communications sites visited. Imagine Communications gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and website needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies, including "cookies" (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about Imagine Communications services). Imagine Communications does not combine information collected in this way with any personally-identifiable information. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it. Please refer to the Exceptions and Limitations set forth in Section D, below, which may modify or expand upon the provisions set forth in this paragraph.

For the limited purposes of accomplishing such cooperation and measures and in compliance with applicable laws, Imagine Communications may be required to disclose personally identifiable information. In addition, Imagine Communications 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 Imagine Communications; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of Imagine Communications or others. In connection with the potential sale or transfer of any of its interest in www.ImagineCommunications.com, www.spotdata.com, and other sites owned by the company, Imagine Communications reserves the right to sell or transfer your information (including, but not limited to name, address information, and other information you provided to Imagine Communications) to a third party that (i) concentrates its business in communication products or services; (ii) agrees to be Imagine Communications' successor in interest with regard to the maintenance and protection of information collected and maintained by Imagine Communications; and (iii) agrees to the obligations of this policy statement.
