ElsnerBell.com maintains high standards for the protection of privacy over the Internet. The following policy statement explains how ElsnerBell.com protects the privacy of information transmitted over the Internet from its web-site visitors.
Generally, ElsnerBell.com only obtains specific and individualized data about its website visitors when such information is supplied voluntarily, i.e., when web site visitors send e-mail, inquiries or make registrations of purchases from ElsnerBell.com.
ElsnerBell.com then uses the information for the purpose of fulfilling the visitors' requests. However, ElsnerBell.com gathers some generic information automatically, solely to help ElsnerBell.com determine the success and usefulness of its websites. This generic information, which does not reveal the identity of the visitor, include: what web site the visitor visited, how much time people spend on various pages of the site, visitors' domain name types (.com, .org, etc.), and the originating web page of the visitor.
ElsnerBell.com 's websites may employ "cookies". Cookies are small segments of text that are transmitted to a visitor's web browser and which store information on the visitor's hard drive. This information is later transmitted back to the server that originally sent it to the visitor upon a later visit to that site. Cookies allow servers to recall previous transactions to avoid repetition in data gathering. A visitor can configure its equipment hardware, usually with its browser to make notification when they receive a cookie. The visitor can refuse it.
ElsnerBell.com will not sell or reveal information obtained about its visitors to anyone outside of ElsnerBell.com unless authorized by the visitor through the nature of their transaction, it is legally required, or such disclosure is required to protect the safety of employees, visitors, customers, or property. ElsnerBell.com does not send "junk" e-mail, also known as "spam". In certain instances, when ElsnerBell.com wishes to contact customers via e-mail, respond to messages, confirm purchases, or transmit information requested by or of interest to a visitor, ElsnerBell.com will typically use e-mail. Any time a customer or visitor receives e-mail it does not want from ElsnerBell.com, the customer can request that ElsnerBell.com not send further e-mail.
ElsnerBell.com has security measures in place for protecting data conveyed during a visitor's purchase with ElsnerBell.com. ElsnerBell.com 's employees, partners and subcontractors are required to protect the privacy of such data. ElsnerBell.com wants its visitors and customers to feel that their privacy will be protected when the visitor accesses their account or purchases services from ElsnerBell.com on-line. ElsnerBell.com denies any responsibility for the privacy protections or content offered by other sites to which ElsnerBell.com 's websites may contain links.
Because ElsnerBell.com desires accuracy in the information it obtains and uses about its visitors and customers, ElsnerBell.com will attempt to verify its data and will ask its customers to notify it of any inaccuracies or mistakes of which they may become aware through their on-line account data and monthly bills.
