The purpose of this policy is to explain the types of information Gulf South Communications, Inc. obtains about the users of the website, how the information is obtained, how it is used, how it may be disclosed to others, and how users can restrict its use or disclosure.

Personally Identifiable Information

Online privacy concerns focus on the protection of “personally identifiable” information which an individual or customer reasonably expects to be kept private. As the term suggests, “personally identifiable” information is information that can be associated with a specific individual or entity.

The only personally identifiable information Gulf South Communications, Inc. obtains about individual users through our web sites is information supplied voluntarily by the user.

IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is assigned to a user’s computer whenever that user is using the World Wide Web. Web site servers must be able to identify individual computers by their IP address.
