Critical Information Network, LLC (“CiNet”) is committed to respecting your privacy and protecting any personal information you choose to share with us. As part of this commitment, we have posted this policy to help you understand what information we may collect from you through the website rpi.letn.com and any affiliated sites (the “Site”) and how we handle that information.
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, for example, a first and last name, an e-mail address, a home, postal or other physical address, telephone number, etc. You may browse our website without sharing any personal information about yourself.
CiNet only collects visitor personal information when the visitor chooses to give it to us by registering with the site, “opting in” to our e-mail or when you submit your personal information to CiNet for any other reason. The personal information requested by CiNet may include a first and last name, e-mail address, home postal or other physical address or telephone number.
How We Use Personal Information
CiNet uses the information you provide for internal purposes, such as to fulfill your requests for information about certain CiNet products and services and to keep you up to date on the latest product or service announcements or other information about CiNet we think you would like to hear about. CiNet also reserves the right to use e-mail addresses to inform visitors of site emergencies, outages or other problems, unless the visitor specifically requests to not receive these messages. You can opt-out of receiving communications from us at any time by following the instructions listed under the section entitled “Opt-Out.”
Your personal information is never shared outside CiNet without your permission, except CiNet may send your personal information to other companies or people under any of the following circumstances: (i) when we have your consent to share the information; (ii) when we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested; (iii) when we need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of CiNet to provide a product or service to you (we will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose); (iv) or when we want to keep you up to date on the latest product or service announcements, or other information we think you would like to hear about either from us (unless you have opted out of these types of communications). We may also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, to another entity in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange or other disposition (whether of assets, stock or otherwise) of all or a portion of our business, to protect and defend our rights, property, and this Site, to enforce our Terms and Conditions, or to act in urgent circumstances to protect personal safety or the public.
If we ever send you information by e-mail, we will provide you with an e-mail address by which you may request no future notices. Users may also opt-out of receiving future mailings by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
