What does your Privacy Policy cover?

This Privacy Policy describes how the personal information you may provide to us via this website is collected, processed, and used.

How does ServerCentral handle requests to view, remove or modify personally identifiable information?

ServerCentral defines personally identifiable information” (“PII”) as information that identifies, or can identify you as an individual, such as a residential address, telephone number, or billing information, and defines non-personally identifiable information” (“Non-PII”) as aggregated information, demographic data, IP addresses, and other information that does not reveal your specific identity.

When you visit and interact with this Site, ServerCentral and third parties with whom ServerCentral contracts to provide services to ServerCentral may collect Non-PII (for example, a catalog of the Site pages you visit). Non-PII is anonymous and does not identify you personally.

Please note, however, that while we will honor your request to stop using your PII, we may need to retain a record of your PII to comply with applicable federal, state, or local law.

In addition, we strive to maintain the accuracy of any PII that may be collected from you and will use our commercially reasonable efforts to respond promptly to update our database when you tell us the information in our database is not accurate. If you are a customer, you can view and change your registration PII, customer preferences, and profile information by using our contact form, or by logging into our customer portal. It is your responsibility to ensure that such information is accurate, complete, and up to date.

Information Collection

What technical information is ServerCentral collecting and how is it collecting it?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, which serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” or IP address. When a visitor requests a page from the Site, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our Site.

Our web servers also collect information about the type of Internet browser you are using, operating system, as well as which of the Site’s pages you have accessed. This information is used to help our team develop Web pages that display properly for the majority of our visitors. Our web servers do not automatically record email addresses of its visitors.

Does ServerCentral use cookies?

Yes, ServerCentral uses cookies. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are often used to provide you with a customized experience. At no time is any personal information stored within any ServerCentral-created or -provided cookie. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but it is possible to change your browser setup so that it does not accept cookies. Accepting cookies through your browser is a personal choice. You can still enjoy ServerCentral’s Site if you choose not to accept cookies.

What personally identifiable information does ServerCentral collect when I complete your online forms?

Whenever you send us an email via the Contact Us form on the Site, you may be providing us with your first name, last name, email address, company name and any additional information you choose to provide in the text of your message. For example, you may choose to provide your phone number, mailing address or other information necessary or helpful for us to address your query or concern. Any information supplied by you through our Contact Us form is used to aid our business to respond to your request and provide you with the necessary information.

Additionally, the Site permits you to reach out to us to request a quote regarding our products and services via our Request a Quote form. When you request a quote through the Site, you may be providing us with your first name, last name, phone number, email address, and any additional information you choose to provide in the comments section of the Request a Quote form (e.g., your address and/or any additional information regarding your request). When you provide us your email address via the Contact Us or Request a Quote forms, you will automatically be subscribed to any regular electronic communications from ServerCentral.

Does ServerCentral track, or allow third parties to track, online activity?

We do not engage in the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time or across third party websites or online services. Accordingly, we do not currently process or comply with any web browser’s “do not track” signal or other third-party mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information. However, to the extent a third-party link or advertisement displayed on the Site contains third party cookies, such cookies may enable such third party to collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and/or across different websites.

ServerCentral will not sell or rent the personal information we collect to third parties for any purpose, including direct or indirect mass email marketing. ServerCentral may disclose your personal information and/or IP address only to our affiliates and service providers or as otherwise described herein. In addition, we will disclose information we maintain, including personally identifiable information when required to do so by law, or may disclose such information in response to a request from a law enforcement agency or authority.

Online Safety

We do not permit children under 13 years of age to use the Site, and we do not knowingly collect information from children. By using the Site, you represent that you are over 13 years of age.

What safeguards are in place?

Because security is important to both ServerCentral and you, we use commercially reasonable efforts to help ensure the security of our systems against such risks as unauthorized access, use, collection, disclosure or disposal. Reasonable security measures have been integrated into the design, implementation and day-to-day operating practices as part of ServerCentral’s commitment to protect the personal information it holds. Please be aware, however, that Internet data transmission is not always secure, and we cannot warrant that information you transmit utilizing the Site is secure.

What else should I know about my privacy when online?

The Site contains many hyperlinks to third party Web sites. ServerCentral is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third-party Web sites or advertisers. ServerCentral does not share any of the individual personal information you provide ServerCentral with the third parties to which ServerCentral links. Please review the privacy policies posted on those Web sites to determine how they will collect, use and maintain your personally identifiable information.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, for example, through email or discussion lists, that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from third parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.
