OSIRISNET takes the issue of privacy very seriously. OSIRISNET is dedicated to
protecting the privacy of our users by taking all possible measures to protect
their personally identifiable information. This privacy statement was developed
to outline these measures and disclose the privacy practices of OSIRISNET.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When
users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is
protected both online and off-line.
When our sign-up/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as
credit card number or postal address), that information is encrypted and is
protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL. While on a
secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers
such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as
opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do
everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’
information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted
in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific
job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are
granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use
password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return,
they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information.
Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy
practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our
employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy,
and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected. Finally,
the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a
secure environment, behind a locked cage.
Information Collection and Use
OSIRISNET is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. OSIRISNET
will not release any personably identifying information unless you specifically
authorize us to do so or unless required by the appropriate law enforcement

During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such
as name and email address). This information is used to contact the user about
the services on our site for which they have expressed interest.
We request information from the user on our order form for premium services.
Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address)
and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This
information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders. If we
have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in
touch with the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing
information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any
personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes
their browser, the cookie simply terminates. If a user rejects the cookie,
they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be
limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to
log into the member section of the site. Cookies can also enable us to track
and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s
movement,and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses
are not linked to personally identifiable information.
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.
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing
company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain,
share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary
We partner with another party 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. These parties are
not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose
of providing these services.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that OSIRISNET 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 web site that collects personally identifiable information.
This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
OSIRISNET protects the privacy of the mailboxes we manage. Our customers’
mailboxes and the content of all messages are private. We do not monitor or
disclose email messages unless we believe we must do so (i) because we are
required to do so by law, or (ii) to defend OSIRISNET in any legal action or to
protect the property of OSIRISNET. Additionally, our customers must agree to
respect the privacy and confidentiality of others. Since privacy is, in part,
a function of our customers’ passwords, we encourage them to change their
passwords frequently and to not share them with anyone.
Site and Service Updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not
able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important
information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested
services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code),
or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to
correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can
usually be done at the member section page or by emailing our Customer Support.
Notification of Changes
Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use
it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide
to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated
at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will
have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different
the information was collected.
