::  Opt Out & Modifications

Customers may opt out of receiving notices of new or upgraded products from dotCOM host and dotCOM host partners by sending a request to privacy@dotcomhost.com.  In this request to privacy@dotcomhost.com, customers must identify: service purchased from dotCOM host, domain name (if applicable), contact information, and the date the service was purchased.

::  Disclosure of customer information and communications

dotCOM host will not otherwise disclose its customers' personal and account information unless dotCOM host has reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, make contact with, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing harm or interfering with the rights or property of dotCOM host, dotCOM host customers, or others, or where dotCOM host has a good faith belief that the law requires such disclosure.

dotCOM host also will not, except for reasons stated below, disclose to third parties the contents of any electronic mail or other electronic communications that dotCOM host stores or transmits for its customers.
