Customer Proprietary Network Information," or "CPNI" is a broad term that encompasses two main categories of information which carriers like Innova.Net collect and use in order to conduct business and offer telephone and data services. First, CPNI includes, among other things, individually identifiable information indicating to whom, where, and when a customer places a call, as well as the types of service offerings to which a customer subscribes and how much any particular service is used. Second, "aggregate customer" information, is collective data that relates to a group or category of service or customers from which individual customer characteristics have been removed.COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR CPNI
Typically, companies like Innova.Net collect the data described above through the ordinary course of the customer-supplier relationship. When necessary, Innova.Net uses such information to fulfill orders, provide service, bill, and communicate with customers. We may also use such data to develop new products or services tailored to fit customers' specific needs.
Innova.Net protects all CPNI in the control of Innova.Net, and treats such information in a manner consistent and in compliance with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirements."Individually Identifiable" CPNI
However, Innova.Net, its agents and affiliates that provide communications-related services, its joint venture partners or independent contractors may use, disclose, or permit unaffiliated third parties to access customers' individually identifiable CPNI in order to (1) initiate, render, bill, and collect for telecommunications service; (2) protect Innova.Net's rights or property, or to protect customers and other carriers from the fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, or subscription to, such service; or (3) to provide any inbound telemarketing, referral, or administrative service to the customer for the duration of the call, if such call was initiated by the customer and the customer approves of the use of such information to provide such service.
In instances where Innova.Net and a partner jointly promote service, Innova.Net may provide the partner with certain personal information (such as the name, address, and username of persons who subscribed to the service as a result of the joint promotion) for the exclusive purpose of implementing the promotion and allowing Innova.Net and its partner to assess the results of the promotion. In this instance, personal information may not be used by the partner for any other purpose."Aggregate Customer" Information
As explained in more detail below, Innova.Net may share with unaffiliated third parties such aggregate information.
Non-Innova.Net websites may require you to accept cookies. We do not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them.ONLINE SHOPPING
Though Innova.Net may provide Internet services to an unaffiliated third party from whom you then purchase services online, Innova.Net has no control over the unaffiliated third party's use of any personal information you provide when placing such an order with the unaffiliated third party. Please exercise care when doing so.RESPONSES TO EMAIL INQUIRIES
When visitors or customers send email inquiries to Innova.Net, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. Innova.Net does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any unaffiliated third party.VOLUNTARY CUSTOMER SURVEYS
We may periodically conduct customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by an unaffiliated third party. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary. We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our customer surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other Innova.Net customers to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated, non-individually identifying information may be shared with unaffiliated third parties.INNOVA.NET'S COMMITMENT TO CHILDREN'S PRIVACY
Protecting children's privacy is especially important to us. It is our policy to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Websites can be fun for our younger audience; however, we believe that there is no substitute for proper parental supervision. For further information about tips, tools, age-appropriate or kid-friendly websites and how to report online trouble, please visit www.ftc.gov. Finally, Innova.Net recommends that children ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to Innova.Net, or to anyone else online.PUBLIC FORUMS
Please remember that any information you may disclose in our Member Directory, or other public areas of our websites or the Internet, becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these public areas.INNOVA.NET'S COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY
Services and websites we sponsor have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.
