From time to time, Rocket IT Services may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate. e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

This information is requested to verify the customer’s identity and to reduce the likelihood of fraud, which is common in the web hosting industry in which Rocket IT Services operates. Customers not wishing to provide such information as requested may not be permitted to become customers of Rocket IT Services.
