Collection of Information

Information You Provide to Us:
Interstate Communications collects information about you when you visit and/or purchase products or services from this website. Some of this information is automatically collected, and some is collected when you interact with the site. The type of information that is automatically collected can include date and time of access of the site, the Internet protocol address of the computer that you are using, the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your browser software and operating system, and the specific activities you are engaged in while visiting the Site. When you interact with this site, such as by completing an application or form, information such as your name, postal address and email address may be collected. Of course, you may choose not to provide certain information to Interstate Communications, but if so, you may not be able to participate in certain Interstate Communications activities and transactions.

Use of “Cookies” and Other Technologies: Interstate Communications may use “cookies” and/or other technologies or files (collectively, “cookies”) to identify how its visitors make use of this site. This aggregate tracking information is used to help Interstate Communications improve and enhance the website experience for all of its visitors. If you would prefer not to have such cookies stored on your computer, you may modify your browser settings to reject most cookies, or manually remove cookies that have been placed on your computer. However, by so rejecting the cookies, you may be unable to fully access the offerings on this site.

E-mail Communication: When you communicate with Interstate Communications electronically, via e-mail or otherwise, you consent to Interstate Communications’ use of the information you have provided, and you further consent to receive electronic communications from Interstate Communications. If you would prefer not to receive such communications, please contact us.

Use and Sharing of Information

Use of Personal Consumer Information by Interstate Communications: The PII collected by Interstate Communications may be used by Interstate Communications for any lawful purpose, including to communicate with you, respond to your requests, and analyze and improve Interstate Communications’ websites, its business and/or its service to you. Interstate Communications may use this information to send you e-mail newsletters, promotional offers with respect to goods or services of a particular brand or other types of communications on behalf of Interstate Communications and/or its affiliates. All e-mail newsletters and promotional offers will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of receiving future issues of such newsletters or to opt out of receiving future promotional offers with respect to such brand. Interstate Communications may also use your PII to send you e-mails or other communications on behalf of third parties. All such communications will provide you with the opportunity to opt out of receiving future third party offers from Interstate Communications. You may also, at any time, opt-out of receiving any third-party offers from this site by sending an e-mail to customerservice@interstatecom.com

Disclosure by Interstate Communications of Personal Consumer Information to Other Entities: Where permitted by law, Interstate Communications may disclose aggregated statistics about visitors to its site, along with specific information concerning individual visitors of its site that is not PII, provided that no specific individual can be identified by the information so disclosed. Subject to applicable laws, Interstate Communications may sometimes seek to share the PII it has collected with a third party, and may also sometimes seek to share such PII with companies that are affiliated with Interstate Communications. Interstate Communications may sometimes use a third party, located either within or outside the United States, to provide certain services on its behalf, such as processing transactions, sending e-mails or performing statistical analyses of activity on this website. In the event that Interstate Communications provides any of your PII to any such entity, Interstate Communications will require that any such entity maintain the confidentiality of (and not further share) the PII that Interstate Communications has provided to it. Interstate Communications may sometimes share PII with sponsors of promotions on the Interstate Communications site, or with or with sponsors or advertisers of “premium” content. Interstate Communications will always disclose when you are registering for such a promotion or requesting such content. Interstate Communications will not provide PII to any third party for such party’s direct marketing purposes without first providing you with an opportunity to opt-out of such disclosures.

Acquisition of Business: In the event that Interstate Communications is involved in a merger, acquisition, consolidation, restructuring, reorganization, liquidation, sale or similar transaction relating to any portion of its business and/or assets, you hereby acknowledge and agree that the PII relating to visitors of this site that Interstate Communications has collected may be included in the assets, and/or transferred pursuant to, such transaction. If that occurs, Interstate Communications will post a notice to such effect on this website.

Legal Process: Interstate Communications may disclose your PII if it has a reasonable good faith basis to believe that it is required to do so by law, compelled by court order or legal process, or is reasonably necessary and/or appropriate to: (i) protect the rights, property and/or safety of Interstate Communications or any other person or entity; or (ii) prevent or take action concerning any alleged: (a) illegal activity or (b) breach of your Terms and Conditions of Service for any Interstate Communications service or the Privacy Policy of this website.
