Effective Date: 12/9/08

By submitting an online order form, or by using Asia Pacific IT’s service, Customer hereby agrees to the following Privacy Policy. Customer agrees that it shall comply with and require its end users to comply with this Privacy Policy, Asia Pacific IT’s Terms of Service (TOS), Asia Pacific IT’s Acceptable Use Policy (AUP), and Asia Pacific IT’s No-Spam Policy (NSP). In this document, the word “Agreement,” with a capital “A,” refers to the TOS, the AUP, the NSP, and the Privacy Policy collectively.


1. Introduction.

Asia Pacific IT respects the privacy of every individual who visits its Web sites and uses its services. This privacy statement provides notice of the standards and terms under which Asia Pacific IT protects the privacy of information supplied by visitors to sites on the World Wide Web that are owned and operated by Asia Pacific IT, including www.asiapacific-it.com. This privacy statement provides notice of our information collection practices and of the ways in which your information may be used. This policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically to review this information.

2. Personally Identifiable Information.

Asia Pacific IT typically receives specific data about its Web site visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information, purchase or enroll for services, 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 or electronic payment service to pay for Asia Pacific IT services, submit your resume, or request certain types of information.

We collect the following types of information about you.

When you provide personally identifiable information to Asia Pacific IT through one of our Web sites, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. However, Asia Pacific IT reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about your Asia Pacific IT services.

Asia Pacific IT currently only sends service communication e-mails through www.asiapacific-it.com, and does not send marketing e-mails or newsletters through www.asiapacific-it.com. The service communication e-mails are essential to our registering you for service and to our continuing provision of services to you. Therefore, you may not opt out of receiving these e-mail messages.

Asia Pacific IT will not, however, sell, trade, or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to any person. On those Asia Pacific IT sites where you may provide Asia Pacific IT with credit card, electronic payment service, or other ordering information via the Web, Asia Pacific IT protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary Web-based security and encryption protocols, an example of which is the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Asia Pacific IT will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Asia Pacific IT assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.

3. Non-Personally Identifiable (Generic) Information.

In general, Asia Pacific IT 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 Asia Pacific IT sites visited. Asia Pacific IT gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and Web site needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies, including “cookies” (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about Asia Pacific IT services). Asia Pacific IT does not combine information collected in this way with any personally identifiable information. You can set your Web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it. However, refusing some cookies may make it impossible to use or navigate the Asia Pacific IT Web site properly.

4. Your Asia Pacific IT-Hosted Web Site, Bulletin Boards, Chat Rooms and Third Party Sites.

Information that you disclose in a public space, including on any bulletin board, chat room, or Web site that Asia Pacific IT may host for you as part of your Asia Pacific IT services, is available to anyone else who visits that space. Asia Pacific IT cannot safeguard any information you disclose in these locations. Additionally, Asia Pacific IT Web sites may contain links to sites that belong to third parties unrelated to Asia Pacific IT. Asia Pacific IT cannot protect any information you may disclose at these sites and recommends that you review the privacy policy statements of those sites you visit.

We post customer testimonials on our web site which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer's name. We do obtain the customer's consent prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial.

5. Exceptions and Limitations.

Notwithstanding the foregoing and in compliance with applicable laws, Asia Pacific IT (i) cooperates fully with state, local, and federal officials in any investigation relating to any content (including personal or private electronic communications transmitted to Asia Pacific IT) or purported unlawful activities of any user of the Asia Pacific IT 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, Asia Pacific IT may be required to disclose personally identifiable information.

In addition, Asia Pacific IT 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 Asia Pacific IT’s business; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of Asia Pacific IT or others.

6. Sale or Transfer of Asia Pacific IT’s Stock or Assets.

In connection with the potential or actual sale or transfer of any of its interest in www.asiapacific-it.com, and other sites owned by Asia Pacific IT, and any of the assets or stock of the company, Asia Pacific IT reserves the right to sell or transfer your information (including, but not limited to, name, address information, and other information you provided to Asia Pacific IT) to a third party that (i) concentrates its business in Web hosting or communication products or services; (ii) agrees to be Asia Pacific IT’s successor in interest with regard to the maintenance and protection of information collected and maintained by Asia Pacific IT; and (iii) agrees to the obligations of this privacy statement. To the extent it is practicable to do so, this paragraph shall also apply in the event of any bankruptcy proceedings involving Asia Pacific IT.

In the event that Asia Pacific IT plans to transfer your information to a third party incident to a potential or actual sale of any of Asia Pacific IT’s assets or stock, or incident to any bankruptcy proceedings involving Asia Pacific IT, Asia Pacific IT will:

• Notify you by e-mail, at the e-mail address then on file for your account, at least thirty (30) days prior to the transfer taking place; and
• Give you the opportunity to decide whether you wish for your information to be transferred to the third party. Please note, however, that if you choose not to allow your information to be transferred to the third party, you may have to terminate or cancel your service with Asia Pacific IT. At the time of providing notice to you of the upcoming transfer of information to a third party, Asia Pacific IT will tell you whether you will have to terminate or cancel your service, should you decide not to allow Asia Pacific IT to transfer your information to the third party.
