Networking Planet Privacy Terms

Networking Planet Inc is dedicated to safeguarding personal information about our customers and employees. When we collect personal information about you, we will inform you in clear and conspicuous language of the purpose for which we are collecting and/or using the personal information, any third parties to whom we will disclose the information, the choices you have regarding limiting the use and disclosure of your personal information, and how you may contact Networking Planet Inc to review, correct, or dispute this personal information. Networking Planet Inc supports the operations of its affiliates, Networking Planet Inc (collectively “Networking Planet Inc”, “we”, “us”, or “our”). This Privacy Policy applies to each of the Networking Planet Inc entities. This Privacy Policy does not apply to services, products, or websites that do not display or link to this Privacy Policy or that have their own privacy statements. By subscribing to or using our services, including by accessing our web sites (the “Services”), you agree to our collection, use, disclosure, and other processing of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

If you need a copy of this Privacy Policy in an alternative accessible format, please call us at +1-813-751-5123 or email us at

We will use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which we collected it from you or which you subsequently authorized, and we will provide you with notice before we use or disclose your personal information to third parties for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected, except where such disclosure is required by law. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that all personal information we collect, retain, or use is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.

When we host data for customers, we start with two simple principles:

• We use, disclose, and otherwise process personal information only to provide the services requested by our customer.

• We maintain reasonable robust security to protect it against unauthorized acquisition or use.

Networking Planet Inc’s obligations with respect to personal information for which Networking Planet Inc is a data processor, such as data that Networking Planet Inc hosts for its customers, are further defined in Networking Planet Inc’s contracts with its customers. Personal information obtained from our customers is processed in compliance with the terms and conditions set forth in our customer contracts and correspondence and our professional standards.

Networking Planet Inc recognizes that its commercial customers may also be subject to detailed privacy and information security regulations as a financial institution under the Gramm Leach Bliley Act, as a covered entity or business associate under HIPAA, or otherwise as an entity subject to privacy and information security laws and regulations. We can readily accommodate legal requirements to ensure appropriate privacy controls and support your compliance programs, and we enter into additional agreements, such as Business Associate Agreements, when appropriate and required by applicable law. Similarly, businesses with personal information originating in the European Union should rest assured that Networking Planet Inc complies with the data protection requirements applicable to it, and Networking Planet Inc enters into data processing agreements to support compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation where appropriate as well. If any of these statutory regimes applies to your business and the data to which Networking Planet Inc may have access in providing services to you, please let your account representative know so we may include any additional regulatory terms that may be appropriate.

Networking Planet Inc complies with the EU – U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework(s), as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce, regarding the collection, use and retention of personal information received from the European Union as well as where data is transferred from the United Kingdom and/or Switzerland. Networking Planet Inc annually certifies its adherence to the Privacy Shield Principles of notice; choice; accountability for onward transfer; security; data integrity and purpose limitation; access; and recourse, enforcement and liability. To learn more about the EU – U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and/or the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework, please visit To view Networking Planet Inc’s certification, please visit

Networking Planet Inc also requires any third-party service provider with whom we share or collect personal information, such as our agents, vendors, suppliers, subcontractors, and independent contractors, to provide written assurances that they provide privacy protections substantially similar to those provided in this Privacy Policy, the EU – U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework for personal information concerning citizens of the European Union, the United Kingdom and/or Switzerland, as applicable. Networking Planet Inc is responsible for ensuring that such third-party service providers process personal information from the EU, UK, and Switzerland in a manner consistent with the Privacy Shield Principles.

Our Internet Services do not allow any third parties to collect personal information about your online activities over time or across websites for their own purposes.


Networking Planet Inc is not responsible for the privacy practices, including the use of cookies, employed by third-party websites, including those linked to or from our website or for the content contained therein. Third-party websites and services you are able to access on the Internet are outside the control and limits of this Privacy Policy.

When you want to set up an account with Networking Planet Inc, in order to determine your credit worthiness, we may use some of your personal information to request a credit report from a credit-reporting agency based on a permissible purpose consistent with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Networking Planet Inc uses the information collected on its websites to provide you with information you request. When you use our websites to order products or services, or to request information about them, we may use the information we have about you as we would use the same information obtained offline; for example, to evaluate your service needs and contact you regarding additional services you may find useful. You may also submit applications for employment online, and we will use the personal information you provide to consider you for employment.

We will not use your personal information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized without your consent. We will not use sensitive personal information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized unless you have provided your affirmative and express (opt-in) consent.

Networking Planet Inc will provide its customers with prompt notice of law enforcement requests or demands for their data to the fullest extent allowed by applicable law so that the customer may assert any defenses or other legal interests that it wishes.

If Networking Planet Inc sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of all or a material part of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger, transfer, or liquidation of all or a material part of its business, your personal information may be transferred to the party or parties involved in the transaction.

If you submit an employment application, resume or similar information about yourself, it will be used only for the purpose of considering you for employment or such other purpose as requested by you.

Networking Planet Inc Services are intended for adults. In order to respect the privacy of children online, Networking Planet Inc does not knowingly collect, maintain or process personal information submitted by children under the age of 18, and we will promptly delete any such personal information when we become aware that it was collected inadvertently.

If we do collect age information, and users identify themselves as under the age of 18, the site will block such users from providing personal information.


We will not disclose your personal information without your consent outside of Networking Planet Inc, such as service providers who help initiate, render, bill and collect for our products and services, other than as described in this Privacy Policy. No data that we host or process for our customers is used for our marketing purposes or the marketing purposes of any other party.

We will not share or sell any personal information collected through the Networking Planet Inc Services with any external parties for their own purposes without your consent. Personal information that we collect from you may be shared with Affiliates and third parties for the purposes of marketing our products and services. However, Networking Planet Inc may sell your personal information to third parties in order to enforce our rights under our customer contracts or the Terms of Use. For example, we may sell past-due accounts receivable as an asset in an effort to collect for unpaid services. Networking Planet Inc will obtain written assurances from its agents that they will safeguard personal information consistently with this Privacy Policy. Affiliates and third parties are permitted to obtain and process only the personal information they need and are prohibited from using it for any purpose other than those permitted by law or with your consent. When we use service providers to assist us in processing your personal information, we require that they comply with this Privacy Policy and maintain appropriate privacy and security measures. Where we have knowledge that a third party is using or disclosing personal information in a manner contrary to this Privacy Policy, Networking Planet Inc will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.


Accessing Your Personal Information. Networking Planet Inc takes reasonable measures to assure that the personal information we use about you is reliable, accurate, complete, and current. Customers who wish to review and/or edit their personal information may do so by contacting us using the information listed at the end of this Privacy Policy. We will make reasonable good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information upon request either to correct or amend your personal information if it is inaccurate or incomplete or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes.

We may decline to process requests for personal information that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not legally required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.

Networking Planet Inc provides customers with the ability to authorize individuals (“Authorized User”) to make inquiries, limited changes, or both, in order to maintain their account. Customers may specify the type of information and changes that the Authorized User is approved to request. Customers may add or remove an Authorized User from their account at any time.

We ask customers and their Authorized Users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests. If you or your Authorized User contacts us via phone, you will be asked to provide your name, the account Personal Identification Number (“PIN”) (if the account is PIN protected; otherwise you will be asked to provide other information for the purposes of identity verification), and the billing address ZIP code before we are able to assist you. You or your Authorized User will be asked to present a valid photo ID when requesting account information while at a business office.

As a processor of personal information on behalf of our customers, we do not provide direct access to personal information we may host or process on behalf of our business customers. If we receive a data subject access request for a customer’s data, we will direct the requester to the business customer to properly place the request.

Communication Preferences. If you do not want Networking Planet Inc to use your personal information to contact you for marketing or solicitation purposes (excluding notices about your existing account), Networking Planet Inc customers may simply opt-out of the marketing emails by using the unsubscribe option at the bottom of the marketing email or make this request to When writing to us, please specify which contact methods (phone calls, mail, bill inserts, or email messages) you would prefer that we do not use to communicate to you for the purposes outlined above. Keep in mind that restricting contact methods may make it more difficult for us to keep you informed about new products and services that can be of benefit to you. You can revoke these options at any time by contacting us using one of the methods provided in this Privacy Policy.

These choices do not apply to the display of online advertising or the receipt of transactional and service communications that are considered part of certain Networking Planet Inc services, which you may receive periodically unless you cancel the service.

If you request to not be contacted by phone for marketing or sales purposes, please note that the Networking Planet Inc Do Not Call List restricts these types of phone contacts from Networking Planet Inc only, so you may continue to receive calls from other companies. If you would like to add your number to the National Do Not Call List, you may do so by calling 1-813-751-5123 or visiting

Networking Planet Inc leverages ITIL based practices to manage mission critical data centers and customer infrastructure 24/7/365. Our facilities are SSAE 18 audited to ensure that independent reviewers conclude that our customers’ data is secure, available, and compliant up to these reasonable and rigorous industry standards.

Networking Planet Inc has designed these and other reasonable technical and organizational security safeguards to protect against such risks as loss or unauthorized access, destruction, use, alteration, modification, or disclosure of personal information. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. Cybersecurity threats are also constantly evolving, and while we strive to maintain robust protections, no one can guarantee the absolute security of data accessible via the Internet.

Our policies restrict access to personal information to Networking Planet Inc employees, employees of Affiliates, and authorized third parties who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services; and our policies require that these individuals be bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination, if they fail to meet these obligations. We do not guarantee that our safeguards will always work.

Our policies require us not to store personal information beyond what is necessary for business purposes, including for internal service evaluation and quality assurance purposes, except as otherwise required by law.


Networking Planet Inc conducts compliance audits of our relevant privacy practices to verify adherence to this Privacy Policy. Any employee that Networking Planet Inc determines is in violation of this Privacy Policy may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.

Our employees, agents, and Affiliates are trained regarding their responsibilities to safeguard your privacy. They are required to adhere to a Code of Business Conduct, this Privacy Policy, and Networking Planet Inc’s policies which support our commitment to protecting customer privacy. If employees or third parties become aware of practices that raise privacy concerns, they are required to report them to their supervisors or to contact Networking Planet Inc’s Incident Response Team.
