What 281 knows about you.

Privacy 101

privacy policy

281 Communications Corporation Inc. ("281 Internet") takes your trust in us and our stewardship of your privacy seriously.

281 Internet collects both personally identifiable information and non-personal information about You when You subscribe to our Service. We develop contact information for you and other users of your service through interaction with our staff and our company portal by documenting information you provide. This information is generally available to our staff and contractors.

Financial information such as credit card numbers is immediately encrypted upon entry and no longer accessible by 281 Internet staff. Please use our https://my281.281internet.com portal to enter this information yourself for the most secure way to give us your financial information.

We enjoy the trust many clients have in us to give this information over the phone, but I strongly encourage you to use encrypted communications with all the businesses you employ in today's difficult security environment.

Non-personal information about our Customers and may include information from third parties, does not identify individual Customers. 281 Internet may combine third party data with our business records as necessary to better serve our Customers. Examples of non-personal information include IP addresses, MAC addresses or other equipment identifiers, among other data. Our systems may automatically collect certain non-personal information when You use our services. This information is generally required to provide the service and is used to carry out requests a Customer makes.

281 Communications Corporation Inc. Policy prohibits staff from viewing inside your data traffic commonly referred to as DPI (Deep Packet Inspection). However, your data is subsequently transmitted beyond 281 Internets network across potentially several other providers networks and servers where such DPI may take place. 281 strongly recommends you employ encrypted (HTTPS) traffic for all websites where you share personal information or any information you do not want collected about you.

281 Internet recommends reading about the topic further if you have concerns. Georgia Tech University published a paper about ISP's (281 Internet) and Content Providers (Google, Netflix, and Facebook) and how their networks and services collect, and could collect, data about you. There are numerous articles and opinions about what is commonly referred to as Net Neutrality. 281 Internet reserves the right to shape and prioritize traffic by type in order to insure consistent network flow, but does not not prioritize one Content Provider over another. 281 Internet reserves the right to block traffic to or from our network (281 clients homes and businesses) that negatively affects consistent network flow. 281 Communications Corporation Inc. does not collect data to sell to third parties.

If You continue to use 281 Internet Services following the posting of a revised Policy, we will consider that to be Your acceptance of and consent to the Policy as revised.
