If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

Updating/Accessing/Amending/Correcting Personally Identifiable Information

If your personally identifiable information changes, you may correct, update, or delete inaccuracies through the Control Panel located at https://my.discountasp.net for web hosting customers and at https://mytfs.discountasp.net for Team Foundation Server hosting customers. If you are having trouble accessing the Control Panel, our customer support team can assist and they can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your request to access within a reasonable timeframe.
DiscountASP.NET acknowledges that you have the right to access your personal information. DiscountASP.NET has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes.

We will respond to requests for access within a reasonable timeframe.
In the course of providing the services to you, we use the services of third parties, such as credit card processing companies, to bill you for goods and services, a survey provider to send out surveys on our behalf, and a mass email provider to manage specific opt-in email lists. We also use a third party service provider software that we use to host our Support Portal.
When you order a new domain name, we will share your name, address, email and phone number with our domain registrar partner as necessary for the third party to provide that service.
In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
It is possible that we may need to provide personally identifiable information to third party vendors that we use in order to provide our services – for example, we provide Microsoft based web hosting. It is possible that should we encounter an issue or bug with Microsoft software that can only be resolved by Microsoft, we may need to share personally identifiable information with Microsoft in order to replicate, troubleshoot and resolve the issue. Similarly, we offer email services using SmarterTools SmarterMail product. It is possible that we could encounter an email issue that must be researched by SmarterTools in order to provide us with a resolution, thus requiring us to provide SmarterTools with personally identifiable information. In these situations, we first ask the customer if we can share personally identifiable information with the third party.
In the event DiscountASP.NET goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred.
