Cookies are not considered Spyware. Spyware may gather personal information, such as e-mail addresses and credit card information, and may even alter personal computer settings. Intentional use of Spyware by any EDISPHERE employee, agent, partner or affiliate on EDISPHERE behalf will not be tolerated and will be considered grounds for dismissal, contract termination and/or loss of payment.

However, we will not share your credit card information with any third parties unless they are involved in processing payments for services that you have purchased from EDISPHERE. EDISPHERE only works with partners whom we believe maintain high standards with respect to privacy and consumer rights.

Generally, we can use your CPNI to offer additional services to you, and for billing and collections purposes. We can also disclose your CPNI for legal or regulatory reasons, including in response to subpoenas and court orders. We can also use CPNI to investigate fraud and to prevent violation of our Terms of Service and unlawful use of our network, services and other customers.
