In addition, to register a domain name, Subscribers are asked to provide this information for the registrant, administrative contact, technical contact and billing contact of the domain name (collectively, "Domain Name Registration Information"), for submission to the appropriate domain registry or registration database.

Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the feature.

III)Cookies and Tracking.

DGCHost.net uses different types of cookies (which are electronic collections of information stored on a local computer that are used by websites to keep track of visitors and registered users and to relate one computer transaction to a later one) and other methods of uniquely tracking visitors for different purposes. For example, some cookies are "required cookies" which are necessary for DGCHost.net's website to work. In addition, cookies are used to provide DGCHost.net's existing Subscribers with the opportunity for continued savings and increased convenience as described in more detail below.

a) Cookies for Improving Our Web Site.

DGCHost.net uses "performance cookies" to inform DGCHost.net of a repeat visit. However, these cookies do not tell DGCHost.net who a visitor is, the visitor's name, email address, or passwords.

b)Cookies for Banner Rewards Program.

To offer DGCHost.net Subscribers continued savings, DGCHost.net uses cookies to help monitor the traffic generated from DGCHost.net banners and logo buttons displayed on DGCHost.net Subscribers' websites

c) Cookies for Subscriber Account Management.

For DGCHost.net Subscribers, DGCHost.net uses "functional cookies" to store user names for added convenience.

IV) Customer Surveys.

DGCHost.net may periodically conduct customer surveys. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary. However, we encourage Subscribers to participate in these surveys because they provide DGCHost.net with important information that helps improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information, if provided, will remain confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party service provider on our behalf.

V) Collection by Linked Websites.

Passively collected information, such as information collected from or about your device including through the placement or reading of cookies or other tracking technologies is used to provide a customized experience as you use DGCHost.net's services.

I) Subscriber Contact/Account Information

The information collected from Subscribers is used to manage each Subscriber's account (such as for billing and account management purposes) and to promote other products or services that DGCHost.net believes may be of interest to its Subscribers. DGCHost.net may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from information that Subscribers provide during registration (such as the total number of Subscribers in a given category, but not their names). As explained in more detail below, DGCHost.net may in certain instances use this aggregated and non-identifying information to promote advertisements that appear on DGCHost.net's website and in connection with its services. Any such aggregated and non-identifying information that DGCHost.net collects, and any analysis of such information that it produces, is proprietary information of DGCHost.net.

II) Analytics/Statistics.

DGCHost.net uses information gathered from its website analytics (for example, User IP addresses) to help diagnose problems with DGCHost.net servers, and to administer and optimize DGCHost.net's website. DGCHost.net also gathers broad demographic information from this data to help improve its website and make your browsing and purchasing experience more responsive, efficient, or enjoyable. Any statistics gathered by DGCHost.net are proprietary property of DGCHost.net.

III) Responses to Email Inquiries

When Subscribers send email inquiries to DGCHost.net, the return email address (and other personal information provided in the inquiry) is used to answer the email inquiry received.

4. Sharing of Information

I) Confidentiality

With the exception of other members of the Endurance corporate family and trusted business partners who work with or on behalf of DGCHost.net, and are subject to specific confidentiality agreements, DGCHost.net will not provide or sell to any third party your personal information and will keep all Subscriber information confidential, subject to the following:

II) Service Providers

Upon registration for DGCHost.net services, certain Subscriber information may be transferred to trusted affiliated or unaffiliated third parties that help DGCHost.net provide certain services or that provide certain services on DGCHost.net's behalf. For example, Subscriber information may be transferred to DGCHost.net's affiliated registrar, FastDomain (WHOIS Domain Name Registration Information), or to unaffiliated third parties that help DGCHost.net provide email services or SSL certifications

III) Co-marketing Activities.

Some services are offered or promoted in conjunction with a DGCHost.net partner or sponsor. For example, DGCHost.net may partner with other corporate affiliates of Endurance or with trusted non-affiliated partners for co-promotions of a particular product or service. DGCHost.net may share certain Subscriber contact information but no billing information with DGCHost.net's partner or sponsor in order to provide the relevant services or to run the promotion. If DGCHost.net shares Subscriber information with partners and sponsors, DGCHost.net requires that they maintain the Subscriber information in confidence, and use the information solely for purposes of providing the services or carrying out the agreed upon promotion

IV) Online Advertisements.

DGCHost.net does not share personally identifiable information about individual users with advertisers. DGCHost.net may display online advertisements and share aggregated and non-identifying information about Subscribers collected through the registration process or through online surveys and promotions with certain advertisers. This aggregated and non-identifying information may be used to deliver tailored advertisements. For example, an advertiser may tell DGCHost.net the audience it wants to reach (e.g., males between 25 and 55 years of age) and provide DGCHost.net with an advertisement tailored to that audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information collected by DGCHost.net, DGCHost.net may then display the advertisement to the intended audience.

V) Customer Surveys.

In addition to sharing survey information with service providers confidentially as described above, DGCHost.net may share aggregated, non-personally identifying information obtained from customer surveys within the Endurance corporate family or with third parties.

VI) Law Enforcement

DGCHost.net will respond to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes, and will utilize Subscriber information as necessary to establish or exercise DGCHost.net's legal rights or defend against legal claims. Additionally, DGCHost.net will share information to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations or suspected violations of DGCHost.net's Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.

VII) Domain Registration.

In certain jurisdictions or pursuant to the rules of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") or certain registries, Domain Name Registration Information has to be made available and accessible to the public through a "WHOIS" search. The WHOIS database is a publicly accessible database that lists the Domain Name Registration Information for a particular domain name, the name server(s) to which the domain name points, and the domain name's creation and expiration date. The Domain Name Registration Information you provide is hosted by DGCHost.net or a third party service provider and is made available to the public through WHOIS searches. DGCHost.net may deposit your Domain Name Registration Information with a third-party escrow provider to comply with ICANN requirements. At times, Subscribers may receive solicitations that result from searches of the publicly available WHOIS database by other companies or individuals. Any such solicitations or SPAM do not come from DGCHost.net and DGCHost.net does not control the use of WHOIS information by third parties.

VIII) Domain Privacy.

When DGCHost.net is threatened with suit by a third party, or any other legal action is brought to DGCHost.net's attention involving DGCHost.net based on the anonymity of a domain name, DGCHost.net may seek assurance from you, the customer, concerning your promise to indemnify DGCHost.net and written confirmation that you have contacted the complainant and made your contact information available to the complainant. Failure to promptly provide these assurances may be considered by DGCHost.net to be a breach of your agreement with DGCHost.net and may result in deactivation of your domain name and disclosure of your contact information so that any allegations of infringement or other wrongdoing may be directly resolved between you and the complainant
