During the registration process, we will collect information such as your name, date of
birth, email address, password, your contact details (address and telephone number),
your credit card information and billing address, and communications preferences.
When you use certain services through your account, you may be required to provide
additional personal information relating to those services. This is to enable us (or our
third party service providers) to provide the particular service to you. For example, if
you choose to use end point security for one or more devices, you will need to provide
your device details and device functionality, which we will link to your personal
information. As part of this service we may also collect your device IP address and
If you choose to use monitoring services for one or more pieces of identity information
(such as your passport, drivers' licence, or bank account), you will need to provide

If you request support from our 24 hour helpline, we will request that you provide us
with information that will enable us to assist you, such as your name, address, any
other information we may need to identify you, the services that you are using, and
information relating to those services. We will also record all calls to the 24 hour
helpline and collect information relating to the reason for your call. Your calls are
recorded for the purpose of documenting information which we (or our third party service

your response to these surveys and requests, or your provision of a testimonial, are
voluntary, and you may decline to participate. However, we may collect any personal
information you provide to us through such participation or testimonials.
If you do not provide us with the personal information requested, we may not be able to
respond to your inquiry, or provide services to you.
We also may collect and use non-personal information about your use of our website, such
as Internet address or type of browser. In addition, we may track general information
about traffic on our websites.
We will retain your personal information during the period that we provide any services
to you, and for a reasonable period after you have ceased to use all of our services,
unless otherwise required or permitted by law (in which case we will retain it for the
period required or permitted by law). What is reasonable may differ depending on the
circumstances, for example we may retain information for a longer period when you submit
any queries or make any complaints to us.
Secure DNS Look-Up
We make available a secure browsing application as part of some of our services which
includes a secure Domain Name System (DNS) look-up service ( Look-Up Service ). The
Look-Up Service operates when you are using the secure browser and translates the domain
name (such as www.example.com) into the corresponding Internet Protocol (IP) numerical
address (22.214.171.1248) that corresponds to that domain name. The Look-Up Service
collects the date and time of each DNS request and the domain name requested ( Look-Up
Statistics ). Look-Up Statistics are not personally identifiable but may be correlated
to your IP address and to the license key that was assigned to you when you registered
for one or more of our services, both of which are potentially personally-identifying
information. We temporarily store the Look-Up Statistics to monitor and improve our
quality of service, and to compile high-level aggregate information about the user of
our service. The Look-Up Statistics may be stored for up to 60 days.
How we use personal information
We use the personal information that we collect for the stated purpose – for example, if
we collect personal information to provide monitoring services in relation to that
personal information, we will only use that personal information for that purpose unless
you agree to any other purpose or purposes (such as those set out in this privacy
policy) or as permitted or required by law.

Statistics to provide you with the secure DNS look-ups, to monitor and improve the
quality of our service and for internal analysis regarding the user of our service.
We may use aggregated, anonymous web safety scores to monitor security levels,
recommend improvements and publish reports on web safety statistics. We may also use
de-identified information to conduct data analysis and research relating to the risk

Where you have provided us with personal information as part of an application for a
