Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally
sensitive data through Southwest Network public message boards, this information may be collected and
used by others.
Southwest Network encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from
Southwest Network so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information.
Southwest Network is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of
Southwest Network and the Southwest Network family of websites.

Network may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of
potential new services that may be offered.
Southwest Network does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Southwest Network may,
from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be
of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address,

law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply
with legal process served on Southwest Network or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of

The Southwest Network Web site uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text
file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver
viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a Web server in the domain
that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a
cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize
Southwest Network pages, or register with a Southwest Network site or services, a cookie helps Southwest Network
recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal
information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Southwest
Network Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved so you can easily use the Southwest
Network features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can
usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may
not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Southwest Network services or websites you visit.
Southwest Network secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Southwest Network
secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment,
protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is
transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
Southwest Network will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback.
Southwest Network encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Southwest Network is
protecting your information.
Southwest Network welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that Southwest Network
has not adhered to this Statement, please contact Southwest Network at
