Privacy Policy

Phoenix Volant takes your privacy seriously.

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the Web pages, newsletters, discussion lists and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by Phoenix Volant. The following discloses our Privacy Policy.

What This Privacy Policy Covers

  • This policy covers how Phoenix Volant treats personal information that we collect and receive, including information related to your past use of our products and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like: your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

  • This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to people that we do not employ or manage. In addition, our client companies have their own privacy statements which can be viewed by going to their pages and clicking on their links.

What personally identifiable information or third party personally identifiable information is collected through the web site?

When you become a client, with your site hosted by Phoenix Volant, administrative and technical contact information is gathered. This will include your name, address, email address, phone number. It may include other information depending on the services you contract from us.

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the Phoenix Volant Network, 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. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the Phoenix Volant Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. See also Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties? We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

What are Cookies?

From time to time, Phoenix Volant may send a " cookie" to your computer. 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.

A cookie can't read data off of your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to identify which areas of Phoenix Volant's Network you have visited or customized, so the next time you visit, those pages may be readily accessible. We may use this information to better personalize the content, banners, and information that you see on our site. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our Site and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

How do you use single-pixel images?

We don't.

Single-pixel images, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons or web spys, are used by some sites to count Web page accesses and gather general statistical information. Phoenix Volant does not gather personal information through the use of these images. Our clients may use single-pixel images that can track personal information from cookies that may have been previously placed on a user's computer by that client.
