Your privacy is very important to us. We want to make your experience on the Internet as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and we want you to use the Internet’s vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.
Personal Information RTC Internet Collects and How It Is Used
RTC Internet collects information in different ways from Visitors and Customers who access the various parts of our Services and the network of Web sites accessible through our Service. We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Services and, generally, do not share this information with third parties. However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that the law requires such disclosure or other special cases described below.
Customers are asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our Services including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as a credit card number), and the type of personal computer being used to access the Services. The personal information collected from Customers during the registration process is used to manage each Customer’s account (such as for billing & technical support purposes). This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.
However, in instances where RTC Internet and a partner jointly promote the Services, RTC Internet may provide the partner certain personal information, such as the name, address, and username of persons who subscribed to the Services as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us, and the partner, to assess the results of the promotion. In this instance, the partner may not use personal information for any other purpose.
RTC Internet may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal information Customers provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Customers). As explained in more detail below, we may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear on the Services.
RTC Internet Partners and Sponsors
Some RTC Internet products and services are offered to Visitors and Customers in conjunction with a non-affiliated partner. For example, we may outsource the provision of stock quotes and operation of personalized stock portfolios (that may be accessible through your Personal Start Page) to a third-party vendor. To provide Visitors and Customers certain products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain personal information. In these instances, you will be notified before any such data is collected or transferred and may decide not to use that particular service or feature.
