pair Networks is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. pair Networks collects information from our customers only through password-enabled or secure interface access points.

The types of information we collect from our customers may include: name, company, address, phone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses, dates of service provided, types of service provided, payment history, manner of payment, amount of payments, date of payments, credit card or bank account information, names of services purchased, and domain names we host.

This information is used for billing and to provide service to our customers. We may also study this information to determine our customers’ needs and whether other services should be offered to you and other customers.


In order to use our services, a potential customer must first complete the appropriate registration form. During registration the customer is required to give their contact information (such as name and e-mail address). This information is used to contact the customer about the services which they have purchased, or about which they have contacted us.


In order to make payment to pair Networks, a customer must provide contact information (such as name and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to process payments. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to contact the customer.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer our site and servers, track access, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. It is possible that personal information about a customer may be included in the log files due to the normal functions of IP addresses and Web browsing.


We do not share your data with others except as necessary to process payments, provide services, or in response to court-issued subpoenas or search warrants. pair Networks may be required to disclose personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. In order to protect our legal interests, in the event of a subpoena or search warrant, pair Networks may voluntarily provide to all legal authorities any and all information requested, with or without contacting you.

Customer information may be available as a consequence of the specific services ordered. For example, domain name registration requires that customer information be made available through a central registry as well as a public WHOIS server. Contracting for other services may require that customer data be shared with a service provider in order to provide the service.

Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. As a secure facility, our offices are restricted to employees and escorted authorized visitors only. We have implemented written security policies to ensure customer privacy. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment within our private datacenter.

In the event a customer forgets their password, they must provide personal information to authenticate themselves and obtain the password.
