Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information
or personally sensitive data through Align Networks public message boards,
this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Align Networks
does not read any of your private online communications.
Align Networks encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites
you choose to link to from Align Networks so that you can understand how those
Web sites collect, use and share your information. Align Networks is not responsible
for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Align Networks

Use of your Personal Information

contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services
or of potential new services that may be offered.
Align Networks does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.
Align Networks may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business

Align Networks keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within

The Align Networks Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online
experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page
server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.
Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the
domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save
you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned
to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Align Networks pages, or
register with Align Networks site or services, a cookie helps Align Networks
to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process
of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses,
and so on. When you return to the same Align Networks Web site, the information
you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Align Networks
features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically
accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies
if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience
the interactive features of the Align Networks services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
Align Networks secures your personal information from unauthorized access,
use or disclosure. Align Networks secures the personally identifiable information
you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from

of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
