American Messaging strives to maintain high standards for
the protection of privacy over the Internet. The purpose of
this statement is to explain to our visitors the type of information

how we gather it, how we use it, how long we retain it, and
how visitors can restrict the use or disclosure of personally
Information we collect
The personal information American Messaging obtains about individual visitors
to our websites is information the visitor supplies voluntarily. This means
that you can visit our websites without telling us who you are or revealing
any information about yourself. To gauge the effectiveness of our websites,
we do collect some generic information about our visitors. Our web servers
automatically recognize a visitor's domain name (such as .com, .edu, etc.),
the point of entry from which a visitor enters our site including web pages,
User Guide CDs or banner ads, which pages a visitor visits on our site, and
how much time a visitor spends on each page. We use web beacons (a.k.a. clear
gifs) to track use of our site and to track what sites users came from and
go to after leaving our site. We do not track user activity on sites outside
of American Messaging. We aggregate this information and use it to evaluate
and improve our websites.
American Messaging may collect personally identifiable information (such as
name, email address, postal address) and/or third party personally identifiable
information through this website. You may choose to provide individual information
to American Messaging in a number of ways through our website such as by:
- Ordering a product or service from us
- Sending us e-mail
- Registering to
receive news, online account access, public policy updates
or information about our products
- Applying for a job or
- Entering a contest
When visitors supply information about themselves for a specific purpose, American
Messaging uses the information for that purpose (such as to provide the information
the visitor has requested or to consider a visitor for a particular job). When
visitors use our websites to order services, or to request information about
them, we may use the individual information as we would use the same information
obtained off-line - for example, to evaluate your service needs and contact
you regarding additional services you may find useful. You have the right to
choose not to receive this information by notifying us of your preference.
We do not sell individual information obtained on-line about our visitors.
And, we will not disclose the individual information provided to us on-line
to anyone outside of American Messaging unless you specifically authorize it,
it is required by law, disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of customers,
employees or property, it is part of performing a service you have requested,
or we have asked a third party to perform a service on our behalf to serve
you better. When we provide information to third parties to perform services
on our behalf, we do not permit them to use the information for any other purpose.
If you provide individual information to us in the context of an event American
Messaging sponsors with another company, such as a contest, or if you register
on a co-sponsored site or feature, you may also be providing the information
will control, so review their information carefully. American Messaging from
time to time uses third party contractors to perform services such as website
management, site design, site hosting and special promotions but does not use
user information for other purposes beyond providing specific services on American
American Messaging does not send unsolicited "junk" email (spam).
We may use email to communicate with our customers, to respond to visitors'
emails, to confirm orders placed online, and to send information that a visitor
has requested. If you receive an unwanted email from us, you can simply reply
to ask not to receive future emails.
American Messaging websites also use "cookies". They allow us to
serve you better. When you use our site we send information, a cookie, to your
computer and it is stored there. When you return to our site, your computer
sends the cookie back to us. This allows our server to recognize your computer
and any settings you created on our site. It restores those settings so you
don't have to enter the same information every time you visit. The fact that
our server recognizes your computer when it retrieves the cookies does not
mean that American Messaging is actually acquiring personally identifiable
information about you. You can set your browser to delete cookies or to tell
you before you accept one. Look in your browser's Options or Preferences menu.
