Last Updated: 05-18-2016

NS8, INC ("NS8") knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting any of the sites offered by NS8, INC, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

For questions on the Privacy Notice please contact the NS8 Support Center.


Information Provided By You: NS8 receives and stores any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. The information you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, providing services (e.g., domain name registration, DNS hosting), and communicating with you is held in strict confidence.

Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with NS8. For example, like many websites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our sites. Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) click stream to, through, and from our website, including date and time. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. Besides using the information as described above, NS8 utilizes cookies to control the flow of the ordering processes by maintaining the state of your online transactions.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

Yes, we do share information but only as described below. Otherwise, we will not provide your personal information without your consent.

WHOIS: We are required by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN"), the organization that assumes responsibility for domain name allocation, to collect information about you during the domain name registration process. This information includes your full name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail address, and, where provided, your facsimile number. ICANN then requires all registrars to make your full name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail address, and, where provided, your facsimile number, as well as the creation and expiration dates of your domain name registration and the name server information associated with your domain name, to the public via an interactive web page and a "port 43" WHOIS service. For the purposes of this Privacy Notice we will refer to this information as your "WHOIS Information." Please note that we may not be able to control how members of the public may use the WHOIS Information.

Advertisers: We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

Partners:We partner with other parties to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.

Agents: We engage other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include processing credit card payments, providing marketing assistance, providing customer services, sending postal mail and e-mail to you, removing repetitive information from customer lists, and analyzing data. These persons have access to personal information needed to perform their functions. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information that you provide to NS8 for any secondary purposes.

Service Providers: We engage other companies and individuals to perform enhanced services on our behalf. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Business Transfer: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or their assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, if NS8, INC or all or substantially all of its assets were ever to be acquired, client information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Compliance: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Services Agreement and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of NS8, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

NS8 works to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input and the information we may send to our agents.

NS8 has gone to great lengths to ensure your information is securely obtained and held in compliance with a card holder information security initiative. For example, we encrypt your credit card number before it is stored in our database. This ensures that no one may access your credit card from our system.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

NS8 gives you access to certain information about you for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. To view or change this information, login to your account. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records.

Sites provided by NS8 contain links to other sites. Please be aware that NS8 is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

NS8 does not sell services for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use our services only with the full knowledge and consent of a parent or guardian.

If you choose to visit NS8, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Terms of Use Agreement, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Nevada. If you have any concern about privacy at NS8, please send us a thorough description to support@ns8.com, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly. This Notice and the Terms of Use Agreement will change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time of use. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our agreements and policies. However, you should check our website frequently to see changes that may be made from time to time.
