If you are located outside the United States, please be aware that your information is being transferred from your country to the United States, and registration for our services constitutes affirmative consent to such a transfer.iConnecthere sends all credit card transactions for authorization and authentication. We use VeriSign as a third-party intermediary. Please consult VeriSign’s privacy policies in addition to this policy.

Use of Information

iConnectHere believes that knowing more about you will enable us to serve you better. It allows us to personalize the content and services we offer you. It also permits us to target advertising for products or services to your interests and tastes. iConnectHere uses this information internally to improve the products and services we provide to you.

We may also combine it with other information about you that is available to us internally or from other sources, and we may share it with third-party marketing partners to help us improve how we serve you and to alert you to new products, services and special offers. One of the many services iConnectHere can offer to you when you register is notification concerning new products and services available from iConnectHere or from third-party marketing partners.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.

These notices and offers will be targeted to your individual preferences and tastes based on the information you have provided. In addition, we may use personal information to better design our Web Site and we may share it with advertisers.

These partners include companies that facilitate marketing offers, promotions, newsletters, etc. We will seek to obtain your consent at the place where the information is collected by an "opt-out" method. In other words, just “uncheck” the box on the registration form and we will not share your information with advertisers.

iConnectHere's site is protected by a firewall and other measures to safeguard your financial information and further ensure your privacy is kept intact. In addition, 128-bit SSL encryption through VeriSign protects sensitive information such as credit card numbers and any personally identifiable information.

You must have both User ID and Password to log into your account; if you don't have both, you can choose to have them e-mailed to you. Once you are logged in, you can change your information by clicking the tab marked "My Account" and choosing what information you'd like to alter.

Notification of Changes

If we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify you via email. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner.

In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our website notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post the notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.

Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses

We may collect your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administrate our website. Your IP address is only used to identify you and form broad demographic information. This practice is common and even essential for most websites, as all companies find it necessary to assess their business online.

We collect log files pertaining to the amount of amount unique users, the length of a visit, pages visited, time and day of visit, file downloads and advertising views and clicks through WebSideStory, whose privacy policy can be found here.

All of this information is collected in aggregate and is used in aggregate and not specific to a user. We do monitor usage of our system through IP addresses in order to assist with the investigation and prevention of potentially unlawful activities that may threaten the integrity of service or otherwise violate our Terms of Use.

We maintain two types of web files using IP addresses and other information: (1) a web log file that monitors the usage of the site itself originating at individual IP addresses; and (2) a log of calling information, such as phone number. Actual phone conversations are not recorded by the service. iConnectHere will not read, listen to, or disclose to any third parties private e-mail, conversations, or other communications that are transmitted using iConnectHere services except as required to ensure proper operation of our services or as otherwise required by law.

iConnectHere encourages you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites because their privacy practices may differ from ours.

It's also important to know that iConnectHere has several strategic partners that help us provide one or more of the services available through iConnectHere.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act

You should be aware, however, that calling plans purchased for family use may be used by minors without the knowledge of iConnectHere. If that happens, any information collected from the usage will appear to be the personal information of the actual adult subscriber and treated as such under this Policy.

Business Transfers

As we continue to develop our business, we may buy or sell companies, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferred business assets, but remains subject to pre-existing Privacy Policies (unless the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the event that deltathree, Inc. or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.
