Finally, SKYFY may sometimes obtain from third parties publicly available information about our subscribers. In addition, you could submit information about other people (i.e. a person’s name, phone number and email address for technical support, as a referral, or to receive a gift). The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected about other people include but might not be limited to: recipient’s name, address, email address and telephone/fax numbers.

This Notice pertains to personally identifiable information about you that you have furnished to us, or that we have collected, in connection with the provision of Internet services to you.

SKYFY systems, in delivering and routing the services, may automatically log information concerning Internet addresses you contact, and the duration of your visits to such addresses. SKYFY does not disclose any personally identifiable information that may be derived from these logs for marketing, advertising or similar purposes. The information collected over SKYFY systems in connection with your use of the services may be used in connection with the provision and maintenance of the relevant service and to fulfill transactions that you request, to personalize or improve your online experience, or as otherwise necessary in the course of our businesses (i.e., audits, billing matters, or research). SKYFY may also use this information to provide advertising and other offers for goods and services to you, subject to the marketing preferences you may select when using SKYFY services.

 

Use of Information. SKYFY may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for our products, programs, systems, and services, to respond to your inquiries about our offerings, and to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you. We sometimes use this information to communicate with you, such as to notify you when we make changes to our subscriber agreements, to fulfill a request by you regarding our online systems, forums, products and services, or to contact you about your account with SKYFY. We use information that you provide about others to enable us to send them your gifts. From time to time, we also may use this information to offer our products and/or services to them.

 

The information we collect in connection with our online programs, systems, forums and communities is used to provide an interactive experience. We use this information to facilitate participation in these online forums and communities and, from time to time, to offer you products, programs, or services. SKYFY sometimes uses the non-personally identifiable information that it collects to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience and use of our products and services. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you products, programs, systems and/or services.

Also upon reasonable request, personally identifiable information is disclosed to persons or entities with an equity interest in legal entities related to use when they have a legal right to inspect our books and records. Additionally, SKYFY will disclose information it maintains when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena, or may be compelled to disclose information about you or your communications under exceptional circumstances (for example, such information may be disclosed to law enforcement if it appears to be evidence of child pornography, or was inadvertently obtained and appears to pertain to a crime). Such disclosure is also permitted to an addressee or intended recipient (or his/her agent), or to a person involved in forwarding such information to its destination; when necessarily incident to providing service or to protect SKYFY rights or property; to others with your consent or the consent of an addressee or intended recipient (or his/her agent) of communications sent by you; or otherwise provided for by law. Additionally, SKYFY may also disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency request however, agents, partners, and contractors of SKYFY who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice by, for example, not using information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for SKYFY. SKYFY may disclose information in our possession to protect our rights, property, and/or operations, or where circumstances suggest that individual or public safety is in peril.

 

From time to time, SKYFY may use subscriber data for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this Notice. If our information practices change some time in the future, we will post the policy changes to our web site to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at WWW.MYSKYFY.COM periodically.

 

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Notice. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking SKYFY for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in data. Therefore, we promote active involvement and participation from our subscribers in an effort to make sure that their data, accounts and systems and other SKYFY services they are using are secured and protected. Visit WWW.MYSKYFY.COM for more information on what you can do to protect your information.

 

SKYFY will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided in ways unrelated to those as described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such uses.

 

Third Party Collection of Information. Some of SKYFY online products and services contain, embed, or integrate links to other sites, online products or parties whose information collection practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other parties’ privacy notices as SKYFY has no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties. SKYFY sometimes may offer contests, sweepstakes, or promotions that are sponsored by or co-sponsored with identified third parties. By virtue of their sponsorship, these third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the contest, sweepstakes, or promotion. SKYFY has no control over the third-party sponsors/contractors use of this information and merely aims to make you aware that content and applications provided through its service may be provided by third parties, and that by accessing the online content of these third parties you may cause or enable the transmission by the system to them of personally identifiable information. The policies described in this Notice do not apply to such third parties. As noted, these third parties may have their own privacy policies, which you may also want to review.

 

Cookies. SKYFY may use cookies to enhance your experience with some of our online products and services. Cookies are text files we place in computer’s browser cache to store preferences and record session information, such as items that consumers add to their shopping carts. Cookies, by themselves, do not identify your email address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to SKYFY by, for example, registering at one of our sites. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. SKYFY uses cookies to understand site usage and to improve the content, layout, offerings, and overall usability of our online interfaces and sites. For instance, we may use cookies to personalize your experience at our web pages (e.g. to recognize you by name when you return to our sites), save your password in the password-protected areas, and make it easier for you to use our forums. Cookies may also be used to offer products, programs, or services.

 

Commitment to Security. SKYFY has integrated appropriate physical, electronic, and policy procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use information we collect online. We are constantly working to improve these measures in effort to provide you with safe and secure online experience.

To protect your privacy and security, SKYFY will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before removing information or making any corrections.

 

Contact Us. If you have any questions or concerns about SKYFY Privacy Policy or its implementation, you may contact us by calling 1-888-977-5939 or contacting SKYFY Customer Care by logging into your Account Portal at www.MYSKYFY.com. SKYFY maintains personally identifiable information about subscribers for as long as it is necessary for business purposes. This period of time lasts as long as you are a subscriber and up to fifteen additional years so that we can comply with tax and accounting requirements. When information is no longer necessary for these purposes, SKYFY destroys the information unless there is a legitimate outstanding request or order to inspect the information.

 

If you do not want to receive email from us in the future, please let us know by calling 1-888-977-5939 or contacting SKYFY Customer Care by logging into your Account Portal at www.MYSKYFY.com. If you wish to only supply us with your postal address online, you will only receive the information/product for which you have provided us your address. Persons who only supply us with their telephone numbers online will only receive telephone contact from us with information regarding orders they have placed online.
