|Our Commitment to Privacy
Qubic.Net is committed to the preservation of your privacy.
To that end, Qubic.Net complies with the United States Safe
Harbor Provisions for the European Commission's Directive on
Data Protection, which became effective in October of 1998.
This Directive would prohibit the transfer of personal data
to non-European Union nations not meeting the adequacy standards
for privacy protection. The United States devised a different
approach to protect privacy, known as the Safe Harbor provisions.
This approach was approved by the European Union in July of
2000 and all 15 member states of the EU share this acceptance.
Information Collection and Use
Qubic.Net is the sole owner of the information collected
on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information
to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this
statement. Qubic.Net collects information from our customers
only through password-enabled or secure interface access points.
The types of information we collect from our customers may
include: name, company, address, phone numbers, fax numbers,
e-mail addresses, dates of service provided, types of service
provided, payment history, manner of payment, amount of payments,
date of payments, credit card or bank account information,
names of services purchased, and domain names we host.
This information is used for billing and to provide service
to our customers. We may also study this information to determine
our customers needs and whether other services should be offered
to you and other customers.
In order to use our services, a potential customer must first
complete the appropriate registration form. During registration
the customer is required to give their contact information
(such as name and e-mail address). This information is used
to contact the customer about the services which they have
purchased, or about which they have contacted us.
In order to make payment to Qubic.Net, a customer must
provide contact information (such as name and shipping address)
and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration
date). This information is used for billing purposes and to
process payments. If we have trouble processing an order,
this contact information is used to contact the customer.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer our site
and servers, track access, and gather broad demographic information
for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally
identifiable information. It is possible that personal information
about a customer may be included in the log files due to the
normal functions of IP addresses and Web browsing.
We do not share your data with others except as necessary
to process payments, provide services, or in response to court-issued
subpoenas or search warrants. In order to protect our legal
interests, in the event of a subpoena or search warrant, Qubic.Net may voluntarily provide to all legal authorities
any and all information requested, with or without contacting
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware
that Qubic.Net is not responsible for the privacy practices
of such other sites. We encourage our visitors to be aware
when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements
of each and every Web site that collect personally identifiable
information. This privacy statement applies sole to information
collected by this Web site for Qubic.Net.
Surveys, Marketing, & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from customers
or site visitors via surveys or contests. Participation in
these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. Information
requested of participants may include contact information
(such as name and shipping address) and demographic information
(such as zip code and age). Contact information will be used
to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information
will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use
and satisfaction of this site. We may also provide marketing
materials and information about our services along with your
invoice for services rendered.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our customers'
information. When you submit sensitive information via the
Web site, your information is protected both online and offline.
When our registration forms ask you to enter sensitive information
(such as credit card number and/or social security number),
that information is encrypted and protected.
All of our customers' information, not just the sensitive
information mentioned above, is restricted to our offices.
Only employees who need the information to perform a specific
job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative)
are granted access to personally identifiable information.
As a secure facility, our offices are restricted to employees
and escorted authorized visitors only. We have implemented
written security policies to ensure customer privacy. Furthermore,
all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy
practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies
are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about
the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to
ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the
servers on which we store personally identifiable information
are kept in a secure environment within our private datacenter.
In the event a customer forgets their password, they must
provide personal information to authenticate themselves and
obtain the password. Additionally, customers can access their
own personal data by authenticating themselves. They may access
their accounts to change their credit card numbers, but cannot
obtain the old credit card information when doing so.
If you have any questions about the security at our Web site,
you may send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Supplementation of Information
In order for this Web site to properly fulfill its obligation
to our customers, it may be necessary for us to supplement
the information we receive with information from third-party
Site and Service Updates
We deliver several types of service announcement updates
to our customers. Although most are voluntary, we may in some
cases need to deliver an important service announcement to
all customers without exemption.
Protection/Preservation of Data
All customer data is periodically backed up electronically,
and the backups are stored off-site in a secure location.
Correcting/Updating Personal Information
If a customer's personally identifiable information changes,
or if a customer no longer desires our services, we will endeavor
to provide a way to correct, update or remove that customer's
personal data in our records. In most cases, this can be achieved
through the Account Control Center. Otherwise, please contact
us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Opt Out & Modifications
By default, customers do not receive any voluntary system
updates, such as Newsletters or System Notices. Any customer
who voluntarily receives these updates may unsubscribe at
any time. Customers may not opt out of possibly receiving
important system notifications, in the rare event that such
notification would be necessary.
Notification of Changes
on this page so that our customers will always be aware of
what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances,
if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally
identifiable information in a manner substantially different
from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify
affected customers. Any such affected customer will have a
choice as to whether or not we may use their information in
the proposed manner.
Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy
policies, please contact us at email@example.com.
Qubic.Net's policies and procedures for handling customer
information have been created with the understanding that
Internet technologies are still evolving and that Internet
business methods are continuing to evolve to meet the needs
and opportunities of the changing technologies. As a result,
these policies and procedures are subject to change.
