As part of creating your Torrent credentials, you may also be requested to provide an alternate e-mail address, and questions and secret answers, which we use to verify your identity and assist in resetting your password. Some services may require added security, and in these cases, you may be asked to create an additional security key. Finally, a unique ID number will be assigned to your Torrent credentials which will be used to identify your credentials and associated information.
We may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with Torrent sites and services. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses.
Use of your Personal Information

In those cases, your personal information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, providing technical support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Torrent may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by 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 Torrent or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Torrent; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Torrent services or members of the public.

Controlling “Spam” or Unsolicited E-mail
Torrent is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial e-mail, or “spam.” Torrent has a strict policy prohibiting the use of spam. Torrent will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties. While Torrent continues to actively review and implement new technology, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited e-mail. Using tools such as the Inbox Protector and being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive.
