For the purposes of this Agreement, the following definitions apply and any undefined terms have the meaning ascribed to them in the context in which they are used in this Agreement:
(mt) Media Temple typically receives specific data about its website visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information, purchase or enroll for services, open a customer support inquiry ticket, provide resume information for employment opportunities, or send us e-mail. Of course, some of these activities require that you give us information, such as when you make a purchase, use a credit card to pay for services, submit your resume, or request certain types of information. When you provide personally-identifiable information to (mt) Media Temple through one of our websites, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. In most cases, you will be given the opportunity to select whether you do, or do not, want (mt) Media Temple to use this information for additional purposes. You may also request that (mt) Media Temple not use your information by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, however, (mt) Media Temple reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about your (mt) Media Temple services. Absent any instructions from you, (mt) Media Temple may use information you provide to inform you about additional services and products offered by the (mt) Media Temple family of companies, (mt) Media Temple venture companies, (mt) Media Temple authorized agents, and other goods and services providers with whom (mt) Media Temple has relationships and whose offerings might be of interest to you. (mt) Media Temple will not, however, sell or trade your personally-identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to the visitor or others. On those (mt) Media Temple sites where you may provide (mt) Media Temple with credit card or other ordering information via the web, (mt) Media Temple protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary web-based security and encryption protocols, examples of which include Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Secure Electronic Transaction (SET). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, (mt) Media Temple will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and nonproprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Media Temple assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.
In general, (mt) Media Temple gathers some generic information automatically. Generic information does not reveal the identity of the visitor. It usually includes information about the Internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors, and the (mt) Media Temple sites visited. (mt) Media Temple gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and website needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies, including "cookies" (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about (mt) Media Temple services). (mt) Media Temple does not combine information collected in this way with any personally-identifiable information. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it; this may however reduce functionality of certain website features such as the order system and the AccountCenter.
Notwithstanding the foregoing and in compliance with applicable laws, (mt) Media Temple (i) cooperates fully with state, local, and federal officials in any investigation relating to any content (including personal or private electronic communications transmitted to (mt) Media Temple) or purported unlawful activities of any user of the Service, and (ii) takes reasonable measures to protect its proprietary rights. For the limited purposes of accomplishing such cooperation and measures and in compliance with applicable laws, (mt) Media Temple may be required to disclose personally identifiable information. In addition, (mt) Media Temple may elect to monitor the areas of communication of any kind (i) to satisfy any law, regulation, or government request; (ii) if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate (mt) Media Temple; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of (mt) Media Temple or others. In connection with the potential sale or transfer of any of its interest in mediatemple.net, and ac.mediatemple.net and other sites owned by the company, (mt) Media Temple reserves the right to sell or transfer your information (including , but not limited to name, address information, and other information you provided to (mt) Media Temple) to a third party that (i) concentrates its business in communication products or services; (ii) agrees to be (mt) Media Temple's successor in interest with regard to the maintenance and protection of information collected and maintained by (mt) Media Temple; and (iii) agrees to the obligations of this policy statement.
