These purposes include completing transactions for the Service, to best respond to user support or sales inquiries, to notify or alert customers of events relevant to their Services, and to better accommodate the overall needs of WebEasy Hosting customers. To this end, WebEasy Hosting may need to share some of the data collected with banking institutions, outside contractors, or trusted affiliates.

Under no circumstances will WebEasy Hosting share this information with a third party for compensation or for free, unless the customer specifically authorizes the disclosure.

Aggregate, anonymous data collected may be used by WebEasy Hosting in discussion and/or correspondence with investors and potential partners. This data is statistical in nature, and will not include personally identifiable information. If the ownership is changed, information collected by WebEasy Hosting may be transferred to the new owners.

Security: Because WebEasy Hosting considers the security of customer's information paramount, WebEasy Hosting utilizes industry standard security measures to protect customer data from unauthorized access. These measures, which include policies, employee training, and physical access, as well as system protocols and mechanisms, contribute to the secure exchange and transmission of sensitive data. Particularly sensitive information, such as credit card numbers collected for financial transactions, is encrypted before its transmission to WebEasy Hosting by the customer.

Service Announcements: In the event that a customer's Service is going to be affected by scheduled or unscheduled maintenance, it may be necessary to send out a strictly Service-related announcement. These emails are not optional, however they are intended to act as a professional notification rather than promotional.
