Privacy Tip: Use your zip code to search Internet providers anonymously.


DSLbyZIP Privacy Policy

At DSLbyZIP.com, your privacy is our priority. Our unique zip code database was created with the premise that people everywhere would want to search anonymously for broadband, high-speed Internet, and telecom services in their areas, without having to fill out form after endless form for each and every Internet service provider.

Orders

If you purchase a product or service from one of our affiliates or partners, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form or during the order process. You may be required to provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).

We use this information for checking availability of Internet services, billing purposes and to fulfill your broadband and telecom order(s). If we have trouble processing an order, we may use this information to contact you.

Application Forms

If you apply for a partnership or affiliation with DSLbyZIP, we may require that you provide certain personally identifiable information, including your name, address, phone number, credit card number, and Social Security / Federal Tax Identification numbers where applicable. This information may be necessary to process your application and/or to contact you.

Surveys or Contests

At times we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our website. If you participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). We may use this information to make our website more user friendly for our guests.

We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company will be prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

Uses of Information

DSLbyZIP gathers modest amounts of personal data, provided during availability search or when signing up for broadband and or high-speed Internet DSL service(s). When you the customer checks for DSL service we may ask you for contact information (such as your name, address, and phone number). We use your address and phone number to determine whether or not your telephone line will support high-speed Internet or broadband DSL service, and to contact you should there be any questions regarding your order or to notify you of the status of your order. We do not link any aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.

We may collect aggregate information on what pages website users access or visit, information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information and/or site registrations.

Log Files

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp data.

We use a third-party tracking service, Google Analytics that uses cookies/log files to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our site in the aggregate.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer to our website, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
