Your Privacy

At AmeriCom, we are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect about you only to process your order and to keep you informed of the status of your order. Please read on for more details about our privacy policy.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

  • When you order, we need to know your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number information. If you choose to pay by credit card, we need to know your credit card number, and credit card expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status.

  • We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about important information relating to your service or to inform you of new services we think you'll find valuable. If you would rather not receive this information, please contact us and we will mark your customer information accordingly.

    How does AmeriCom protect customer information?

  • AmeriCom uses the latest encryption technology to keep your personal information safe. All your ordering information -- including your name, address, and credit card number (which is optional depending on the service you order) -- is encrypted using a secure server for maximum security. Your billing information cannot be read as it travels to our ordering system. To ensure that your information is even more secure, once we receive your information information, we store it on a server that is not accessible from the Internet.

  • We do not require a credit card to order Simplicity long distance. However, credit card billing is available for your convenience should you prefer it. Other services we offer may require a credit card and if so, your credit card information will be requested only if it is required for the service you select.

  • In the event that you do select credit card billing, credit card transactions are handled by a third-party financial institution, which receives the credit card number and other personal identifying information only to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions. If you feel more comfortable doing so, you are welcome to call in your credit card information and complete your purchase by phone.

    What about "cookies"?

  • "Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our site does not currently use cookies.

    Will AmeriCom disclose the information it collects to outside parties?

  • AmeriCom does not share customer information with third parties, other than with the telephone service providers which are used to deliver and bill your long distance or other service.

    What is your policy if I link to a third-party web site?

  • When you click on links and/or ad banners that take you to third-party web sites, you will be subject to the third parties' privacy policies. While we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, AmeriCom cannot be responsible for the actions of third parties. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement whenever interacting with any web site.

    Your Consent

  • By using our web site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by AmeriCom. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
