Rapid Fiber Does Not Disclose PII to Unaffiliated Third Parties; Limited Exceptions
Rapid Fiber will not rent, sell, or disclose Customers’ PII to unaffiliated third parties without a Customer’s express consent, except in the following limited circumstances:

  • Rapid Fiber’s Vendors. Rapid Fiber may employ other companies to perform functions on its behalf, such as hosting or maintaining the Platforms, providing various services related to Rapid Fiber’s operations and Services, collecting information, responding to and sending electronic mail, or other functions necessary to Rapid Fiber’s business. Rapid Fiber may need to share PII with these companies (collectively, “Vendors”). Rapid Fiber will provide Vendors with only that information necessary to perform their functions.
  • Agents and Affiliates. Rapid Fiber may reveal a Customer’s PII to Rapid Fiber’s agents, employees, or contractors and affiliates. This includes Rapid Fiber’s parent company, Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative. Such parties may have access to PII for the purpose of performing services on behalf of Rapid Fiber. All such agents, employees, or contractors and affiliates who have access to such information are required to keep the information confidential and not use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for Rapid Fiber or as otherwise required by law.
  • Question of Harm. Rapid Fiber may reveal a Customer’s PII to attorneys, private investigator organizations, or law enforcement agencies if Rapid Fiber believes (a) that the Customer is at risk of harm from another, or (b) that the Customer is harming or interfering (or will harm or interfere) with others or violating (either intentionally or unintentionally) our Terms and Conditions or otherwise violating legal rights.
  • Legal. Rapid Fiber will reveal a Customer’s PII to the extent Rapid Fiber reasonably believes it is required to do so by law. If Rapid Fiber receives legal process calling for the disclosure of PII, Rapid Fiber will attempt to notify the Customer via the email address supplied to Rapid Fiber within a reasonable amount of time before Rapid Fiber responds to the request, unless such notification is not permitted.
  • Transfer of Site. Rapid Fiber is entitled to transfer to a third party information it collects, including PII, in connection with a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the business entity responsible for the information under this Privacy Policy, provided the acquiring third party has agreed to safeguard the Customer’s PII.

Changing or Removing Information; Opting Out.

  • Discretionary Account Information. To allow appropriate control over PII, the Customer can access his, her, or their account (after supplying the username and password) to change or update discretionary information that was previously submitted.
  • Opt-Out. If Rapid Fiber chooses to send bulletins, updates, or other unsolicited communications that are marketing-related materials, the Customer may decline – or “opt-out” of – receiving such communications by contacting the Customer Experience team during normal business hours or sending an email request to A Customer cannot, however, “opt–out” of formal notices concerning the operation of Rapid Fiber’s Platforms, billing notices, and legal or other related notices concerning the Customer’s relationship with Rapid Fiber.
  • Deleting Information. Finally, upon the Customer’s request, Rapid Fiber will remove the Customer’s name and all other PII from Rapid Fiber’s databases. The Customer acknowledges, however, that it may be impossible to remove this information completely, due to backups and records of deletions. In addition, the Customer acknowledges that, if the Customer requests deletion of his, her, or their information, the Customer will be unable to utilize associated features of the Rapid Fiber Platforms and any associated Rapid Fiber Services. Additionally, a Customer may not remove de-identified, anonymous, or aggregate data from Rapid Fiber’s databases.

Rapid Fiber has implemented security systems designed to prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of Customers’ PII, and Rapid Fiber will continue to take reasonable steps to secure and safeguard this Information. Rapid Fiber’s Website’s password-protected section requires users to provide unique identifiers such as username and password. Rapid Fiber encourages its Affiliates and Vendors to have security policies that are at least as protective of Customers’ information as this Privacy Policy. Moreover, Rapid Fiber generally provides access to its databases containing PII on a need-to-know basis only.

Our security systems are, therefore, structured to deter and prevent hackers and others from accessing information provided to Rapid Fiber. Please understand, though, that this information should not be construed in any way as giving business, legal, or other advice, or warranting as fail proof, the security of information provided by or submitted to Rapid Fiber. Due to the nature of Internet communications and evolving technologies, Rapid Fiber cannot provide, and explicitly disclaims, any assurance that the information provided to Rapid Fiber will remain free from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties who, despite Rapid Fiber’s best efforts, obtain unauthorized access.

If, despite the safeguards set out in this Policy, Rapid Fiber detects an intrusion or other unauthorized access to or use of PII (an “Intrusion”), Rapid Fiber will (a) notify affected users of the Intrusion if the information at issue, in Rapid Fiber’s discretion, is sensitive; (b) deliver this notice by the means Rapid Fiber deems most efficient under the circumstances (likely via Rapid Fiber’s Platforms); (c) use contact information for each effected user that is current in our files; and (d) use commercially reasonable efforts to accomplish these steps and effect this notice in a timely manner. To the extent applicable law requires steps in addition to those specified above, Rapid Fiber will, under all circumstances, comply with applicable law.

Email and Spam
Rapid Fiber does not send unsolicited or SPAM email. If customers would like to be removed from an internet service provider or other access provider’s mailing list, the customer will need to contact them directly. If a customer continues to receive SPAM, the customer may report it to the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) by sending a copy of unwanted or deceptive messages to The FTC uses the unsolicited emails stored in this database to pursue law enforcement actions against people who send deceptive spam email.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) is a federal law that gives parents control over information collected from children (those under 13 years of age). For more information regarding COPPA and the collection of children’s data, please visit the Federal Trade Commission’s COPPA website:

In accordance with COPPA, Rapid Fiber does not target children or intentionally collect information from children. However, Rapid Fiber cannot necessarily tell if a user is providing his or her correct age. If Rapid Fiber inadvertently and unknowingly collects information from children under 13, the information will be treated as PII of the adult Customer. If Rapid Fiber learns that a user is under the age of 13 and has provided personal information, Rapid Fiber will destroy that user’s information and cancel the user’s account.

Rapid Fiber suggests that to further protect their children, parents should consider using one of a number of available parental control tools that provide a child-friendly, online environment and can help to prevent children from disclosing PII without parental consent.

This Privacy Policy must be read in conjunction with Rapid Fiber’s Terms and Conditions, as that term is defined in Rapid Fiber’s Service Agreement. To the extent any clause in this Privacy Policy conflicts with any portion of Rapid Fiber’s Terms and Conditions, the terms of this Privacy Policy will control.
