Incoming Server Settings
Your account’s incoming settings are different, depending on
the kind of email service for the account: POP3, IMAP, or
Exchange ActiveSync.
• Domain\Username: If your Exchange ActiveSync server requires
that you specify a domain, enter it before the backslash.
Otherwise, just enter your username (the part before
@emailprovider.com in your email address) after the backslash.
The backslash is optional when only entering your username. The
Email app enters the correct syntax for domains and usernames
when communicating with the server.
• Password: The password for your email account, which should be
filled in.
• Exchange server: The fully resolved domain name of your email
service provider’s server, for example, mail.emailprovider.com.

requires you to connect to the server securely, or if you prefer to
connect securely.
• Accept all SSL certificates: Check this option if you want to accept
a server certificate from your server that is self-signed, out of
date, or in some other way not accepted by the Email application.
• Use client certificate: Use a client certificate for messaging
security.
Outgoing Server Settings
If you use an IMAP or POP3 account for receiving email, you
typically use an SMTP server to send email from that
account. Exchange ActiveSync accounts do not have
separate outgoing server settings.
• SMTP server: The fully resolved domain name of your email
service provider’s SMTP server, for example,
smtp.emprovider.com.
• Security type: Select the security type required by your email
service provider. Select the SLL (Accept all certificates) option
for your security type to accept a server certificate from your
SMTP server that is self-signed, out of date, or in some other way
not accepted by the Email application.

• Port: Set the Security type first to enter the typical server port
number in this field automatically. Or enter a different port
number if your email service provider requires it.
• Require sign-in: Check this option to enter a username and
password for your SMTP server, if your email service provider
requires that you enter them to send email.
• Username: Your username on the SMTP server (this may not be
the same as your username on the POP3 or IMAP server for
incoming mail). Visible only if Require sign-in is checked.
• Password: Your password on the SMTP server (this may not be the
same as your username on the POP3 or IMAP server for incoming mail).
Visible only if Require sign-in is checked.

Section 12: Health and Safety Information
This section outlines the safety precautions associated with
using your Galaxy Tab. The terms “GALAXY” or “mobile
device” are used in this section to refer to your Galaxy Tab.
Read this information before using your mobile device.
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF)
Signals
Although GALAXY is not a cell phone, it can operate on the
same network as cell phones and can use the same Radio
Frequency (RF) signals to communicate with the network as
a cell phone. Therefore, although the following information
refers specifically to RF exposure from wireless phones, it
may apply similarly to GALAXY when it is being used on a cell
phone network.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published
information for consumers relating to Radio Frequency (RF)
exposure from wireless phones. The FDA publication
includes the following information:
Do cell phones pose a health hazard?
Many people are concerned that cell phone radiation will
cause cancer or other serious health hazards. The weight of
scientific evidence has not linked cell phones with any health
problems.
Cell phones emit low levels of Radio Frequency (RF) energy.
Over the past 15 years, scientists have conducted hundreds
of studies looking at the biological effects of the radio
frequency energy emitted by cell phones. While some
researchers have reported biological changes associated
with RF energy, these studies have failed to be replicated.
The majority of studies published have failed to show an
association between exposure to radio frequency from a cell
phone and health problems.
The low levels of RF cell phones emit while in use are in the
microwave frequency range. They also emit RF at
substantially reduced time intervals when in the stand-by
mode. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects
(by heating tissue), exposure to low level RF that does not
produce heating effects causes no known adverse health
effects.
Health and Safety Information
196
The biological effects of radio frequency energy should not
be confused with the effects from other types of
electromagnetic energy.
Very high levels of electromagnetic energy, such as is found
in X-rays and gamma rays, can ionize biological tissues.
Ionization is a process where electrons are stripped away
from their normal locations in atoms and molecules. It can
permanently damage biological tissues including DNA, the
genetic material.
The energy levels associated with radio frequency energy,
including both radio waves and microwaves, are not great
enough to cause ionization of atoms and molecules.
Therefore, RF energy is a type of non-ionizing radiation.
Other types of non-ionizing radiation include visible light,
infrared radiation (heat), and other forms of electromagnetic
radiation with relatively low frequencies.
While RF energy does not ionize particles, large amounts can
increase body temperatures and cause tissue damage. Two
areas of the body, the eyes and the testes, are particularly
vulnerable to RF heating because there is relatively little
blood flow in them to carry away excess heat.
197
Research Results to Date: Is there a connection
between RF and certain health problems?
The results of most studies conducted to date say no. In
addition, attempts to replicate and confirm the few studies
that have shown a connection have failed.
The scientific community at large therefore believes that the
weight of scientific evidence does not show an association
between exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) from cell phones
and adverse health outcomes. Still the scientific community
has supported additional research to address gaps in
knowledge. Some of these studies are described below.
Interphone Study
Interphone is a large international study designed to
determine whether cell phones increase the risk of head and
neck cancer. A report published in the International Journal
of Epidemiology (June, 2010) compared cell phone usage for
more than 5,000 people with brain tumors (glioma and
meningioma) and a similar number of healthy controls.
Results of this study did NOT show that cell phones caused
brain cancer. In this study, most people had no increased risk
of brain cancer from using cell phones. For people with the
heaviest use of cell phones (an average of more than ½ hour
per day, every day, for over 10 years) the study suggested a
slight increase in brain cancer. However, the authors
determined that biases and errors prevented any conclusions
being drawn from this data. Additional information about
Interphone can be found at

Interphone is the largest cell phone study to date, but it did
not answer all questions about cell phone safety. Additional
research is being conducted around the world, and the FDA
continues to monitor developments in this field.
International Cohort Study on Mobile Phone Users
(COSMOS)
The COSMOS study aims to conduct long-term health
monitoring of a large group of people to determine if there
are any health issues linked to long-term exposure to radio
frequency energy from cell phone use. The COSMOS study
will follow approximately 300,000 adult cell phone users in
Europe for 20 to 30 years. Additional information about the
COSMOS study can be found at

Risk of Brain Cancer from Exposure to Radio
Frequency Fields in Childhood and Adolescence
(MOBI-KIDS)
MOBI-KIDS is an international study investigating the
relationship between exposure to radio frequency energy
from communication technologies including cell phones and
brain cancer in young people. This is an international multicenter study involving 14 European and non-European
countries. Additional information about MOBI-KIDS can be
found at

Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)
Program of the National Cancer Institute
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) actively follows cancer
statistics in the United States to detect any change in rates of
new cases for brain cancer. If cell phones play a role in risk
for brain cancer, rates should go up, because heavy cell
phone use has been common for quite some time in the U.S.
Between 1987 and 2005, the overall age-adjusted incidence
of brain cancer did not increase. Additional information about
SEER can be found at

Cell Phone Industry Actions
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA
regulatory actions, the FDA has urged the cell phone industry
to take a number of steps, including the following:
• Support-needed research on possible biological effects of RF
for the type of signal emitted by cell phones;
• Design cell phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to
the user; and
• Cooperate in providing users of cell phones with the current
information on cell phone use and human health concerns.
The FDA also is working with voluntary standard-setting
bodies such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE), the International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), and others to assure
that safety standards continue to adequately protect the
public.
Reducing Exposure: Hands-Free Kits and Other
Accessories
Steps to Reduce Exposure to Radio Frequency Energy
If there is a risk from being exposed to radio frequency
energy (RF) from cell phones - and at this point we do not
know that there is - it is probably very small. But, if you are
concerned about avoiding even potential risks, you can take
a few simple steps to minimize your RF exposure.
• Reduce the amount of time spent using your cell phone;
• Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between
your head and the cell phone.
Hands-Free Kits
Hands-free kits may include audio or Bluetooth® headsets
and various types of body-worn accessories such as
belt-clips and holsters. Combinations of these can be used to
reduce RF energy absorption from cell phones.
Headsets can substantially reduce exposure because the
phone is held away from the head in the user's hand or in
approved body-worn accessories. Cell phones marketed in
the U.S. are required to meet RF exposure compliance
requirements when used against the head and against the
body.
199
Because there are no known risks from exposure to RF
emissions from cell phones, there is no reason to believe that
hands-free kits reduce risks. Hands-free kits can be used for
convenience and comfort. They are also required by law in
many states if you want to use your phone while driving.
Cell Phone Accessories that Claim to Shield the Head
from RF Radiation
Because there are no known risks from exposure to RF
emissions from cell phones, there is no reason to believe that
accessories which claim to shield the head from those
emissions reduce risks. Some products that claim to shield
the user from RF absorption use special phone cases, while
others involve nothing more than a metallic accessory
attached to the phone. Studies have shown that these
products generally do not work as advertised. Unlike
“hands-free” kits, these so-called “shields” may interfere
with proper operation of the phone. The phone may be forced
to boost its power to compensate, leading to an increase in
RF absorption.
Children and Cell Phones
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to any users
of cell phones from RF exposure, including children and
teenagers. The steps adults can take to reduce RF exposure
apply to children and teenagers as well.
• Reduce the amount of time spent on the cell phone;
• Use speaker mode or a headset to place more distance between
the head and the cell phone.
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have
advised that children be discouraged from using cell phones
at all. For example, The Stewart Report from the United
Kingdom made such a recommendation in December 2000.
In this report, a group of independent experts noted that no
evidence exists that using a cell phone causes brain tumors
or other ill effects. Their recommendation to limit cell phone
use by children was strictly precautionary; it was not based
on scientific evidence that any health hazard exists.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Certification Information
Your wireless mobile device is a radio transmitter and
receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the
exposure limits for Radio Frequency (RF) energy set by the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S.
Government.
These FCC RF exposure limits are derived from the
recommendations of two expert organizations: the National
Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP)
and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE). In both cases, the recommendations were developed
by scientific and engineering experts drawn from industry,
government, and academia after extensive reviews of the
scientific literature related to the biological effects of RF
energy.
The RF exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless mobile
devices employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR is a measure of the
rate of absorption of RF energy by the human body
expressed in units of watts per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC
requires wireless devices to comply with a safety limit of 1.6
watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
The FCC SAR limit incorporates a substantial margin of safety
to give additional protection to the public and to account for
any variations in measurements.
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions
accepted by the FCC with the mobile device transmitting at
its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands.
Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified
power level, the actual SAR level of the mobile device while
operating can be well below the maximum reported value.
This is because the mobile device is designed to operate at
multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to
reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a
wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output of
the mobile device.
Before a new model mobile device is available for sale to the
public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does
not exceed the SAR limit established by the FCC. Tests for
each model mobile device are performed in positions and
locations (e.g. near the body) as required by the FCC.
For typical operations, this mobile device has been tested
and meets FCC SAR guidelines.
Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with
FCC RF exposure guidelines. The FCC has granted an
Equipment Authorization for this mobile device with all
reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC
RF exposure guidelines. The maximum SAR values for this
model device as reported to the FCC are:
Head: <0.10 W/kg
Body-worn: 0.78 W/kg
Simultaneous transmission use: 0.78 W/kg
SAR information on this and other model mobile devices can
be accessed online on the FCC's website through http://
transition.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/sar.html. To find information that
pertains to a particular model mobile device, this site uses
the mobile device FCC ID number, which is usually printed
somewhere on the case of the mobile device.
Once you have the FCC ID number for a particular mobile
device, follow the instructions on the website and it should
provide values for typical or maximum SAR for a particular
mobile device. Additional SAR information can also be
obtained at
http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/specific-absorption-rate-sarcellular-telephones.

Smart Practices While Driving
On the Road - Off the Tablet
The primary responsibility of every driver is the safe
operation of his or her vehicle.
Responsible drivers understand that no secondary task
should be performed while driving whether it be eating,
drinking, talking to passengers, or using a mobile device unless the driver has assessed the driving conditions and is
confident that the secondary task will not interfere with their
primary responsibility. Do not engage in any activity while
driving a moving vehicle which may cause you to take your
eyes off the road or become so absorbed in the activity that
your ability to concentrate on the act of driving becomes
impaired. Samsung is committed to promoting responsible
driving and giving drivers the tools they need to understand
and address distractions.
Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile devices
and their accessories in the areas where you drive. Always
obey them. The use of these devices may be prohibited or

implemented in accordance with the Department of Defense
207
policy and the 2008 Federal Radio navigation Plan (FRP).
Changes may affect the performance of location-based
technology on your mobile device.
Your Location
Location-based information includes information that can be
used to determine the approximate location of a mobile
device. Mobile devices which are connected to a wireless
network transmit location-based information. Additionally, if
you use applications that require location-based information
(e.g. driving directions), such applications transmit
location-based information. The location-based information
may be shared with third-parties, including your wireless
service provider, applications providers, Samsung, and other
third-parties providing services.
Navigation
Maps, directions, and other navigation-data, including data
relating to your current location, may contain inaccurate or
incomplete data, and circumstances can and do change over
time. In some areas, complete information may not be
available. Therefore, you should always visually confirm that
the navigational instructions are consistent with what you see
before following them. All users should pay attention to road
conditions, closures, traffic, and all other factors that may
impact safe driving or walking. Always obey posted road signs.
Emergency Communication
GALAXY should not be relied upon for essential
communications (medical emergencies, calls to 911, or
communications to emergency services). GALAXY is not
designed or intended to be used for such communications.
Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) services which may be
used on GALAXY to make phone calls do not support 911
calls and are only intended for talking with friends.
Care and Maintenance
Your mobile device is a product of superior design and
craftsmanship and should be treated with care. The
suggestions below will help you fulfill any warranty
obligations and allow you to enjoy this product for many
years:
Keep your Samsung Mobile Device away from:
Liquids of any kind
Keep the mobile device dry. Precipitation, humidity, and
liquids contain minerals that will corrode electronic
circuits.
If the mobile device does get wet, do not accelerate
drying with the use of an oven, microwave, or dryer,
because this may damage the mobile device and could
cause a fire or explosion. Do not use the mobile device
with a wet hand. Doing so may cause an electric shock to
you or damage to the mobile device.

Avoid temperatures below 0°C / 32°F or above 45°C /
113°F.
Microwaves
Do not try to dry your mobile device in a microwave oven.
Doing so may cause a fire or explosion.
Dust and Dirt
Do not expose your mobile device to dust, dirt, or sand.
Cleaning solutions
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong
detergents to clean the mobile device. Wipe it with a soft
cloth slightly dampened in a mild soap-and-water
solution.
Shock or vibration
Do not drop, knock, or shake the mobile device. Rough
handling can break internal circuit boards.
Health and Safety Information
208
Paint
Do not paint the mobile device. Paint can clog the
device’s moving parts or ventilation openings and prevent
proper operation.
Responsible Listening
Caution! Avoid potential hearing loss.
Damage to hearing occurs when a person is exposed to loud
sounds over time. The risk of hearing loss increases as
sound is played louder and for longer durations.
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the
most common cause of preventable hearing loss. Some
scientific research suggests that using portable audio
devices, such as portable music players and cell phones, at
high volume settings for long durations may lead to
permanent noise-induced hearing loss. This includes the use
of headphones (including headsets, earbuds, and Bluetooth®
or other wireless devices).
Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in
some studies with tinnitus (a ringing in the ear),
hypersensitivity to sound, and distorted hearing. Individual
susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and potential
209
hearing problem varies. Additionally, the amount of sound
produced by a portable audio device varies depending on the
nature of the sound, the device settings, and the headphones
that are used. As a result, there is no single volume setting
that is appropriate for everyone or for every combination of
sound, settings, and equipment.
You should follow some common sense recommendations
when using any portable audio device:
• Always turn the volume down before plugging the earphones into
an audio source.
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest
volume at which you can hear adequately.
• Be aware that you can adapt to higher volume settings over time,
not realizing that the higher volume may be harmful to your
hearing.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot
hear the people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to
you can hear what you are listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you
choose to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment,
use noise-cancelling headphones to block out background
environmental noise. By blocking background environment noise,
noise cancelling headphones should allow you to hear the music
at lower volumes than when using earbuds.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less
time is required before you hearing could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises,
such as rock concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss.
Temporary hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound
normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you
experience ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech, or
experience any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your
portable audio device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

be conducted according to the American Arbitration
Association (AAA) Commercial Arbitration Rules applicable to
consumer disputes. This arbitration provision is entered
pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. The laws of the State

$5,000.00 or less (“Small Claim”), the arbitrator may, if you
prevail, award your reasonable attorney fees, expert witness
fees and costs as part of any award, but may not grant
SAMSUNG its attorney fees, expert witness fees or costs

case, the arbitrator may grant to the prevailing party, or
apportion among the parties, reasonable attorney fees,
expert witness fees and costs. Judgment may be entered on
the arbitrator’s award in any court of competent jurisdiction.

consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as
possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the
remaining portion of the Terms shall remain in full force and
effect. Samsung's failure to enforce any right or provision of

any other provision of the Terms.
Samsung will not be liable or responsible for any failure to
fulfill any of its obligations under the Terms which failure is
due to any cause or condition beyond the reasonable control
of Samsung. If there is any conflict between these Social Hub

Social Hub Privacy Policy
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. ("Samsung") is committed to
protecting the online privacy of visitors, users and customers
to our Social Hub service. This privacy policy ( "Privacy
Policy") forms part of the Terms which govern your use of
Social Hub(excluding any third party content and services),
and (if applicable) the website where you accessed this
Privacy Policy, (collectively, the "Service"). The purpose of
the Privacy Policy is to inform you about the types of
information we gather about you when you access or use the
Service, how we may use that information, and if and how
we disclose it to third parties.
All users of the Service are required to provide true, current,
complete and accurate personal information when prompted
and we will reject and delete any entry that we believe in
good faith to be incorrect, false, falsified, or fraudulent, or
inconsistent with or in violation of the Privacy Policy.
We will provide you with an opportunity to give your consent
in relation to your use of the Service. Separate from such
consent, your access or use of the Service will be construed
233
as your acceptance of the Privacy Policy and of our
collection, use, disclosure, management and storage of your
personal information as described below. We may, from time
to time, transfer or merge any personal information collected
off-line to our online databases or store off-line information
in an electronic format. We may also combine personal
information we collect online with information available from
other sources, including information received from our
affiliates, marketing companies, or advertisers. This Privacy
Policy covers all such personal information and will remain in
full force and effect as long as you are a user of the Service,
even if your use of or participation in any particular service,
feature, function or promotional activity terminates, expires,
ceases, is suspended or deactivated for any reason.
INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT
Personal Information
We may request that you supply us with "personal"
information, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing
address, home or work telephone number in the course of
you accessing or using the Service, such as via registration
forms, surveys, and polls. In each such case, you will know
what categories of information we collect because you will
actively provide the information to us. You may not be able to
fully utilize all of the features or components of the Service if
you choose not to provide certain information. If you do
choose to give us personal information through the Service,
we will collect and retain that information.
Non-Personal Information
When you use the Service, we may also collect
"non-personal" information. We consider "non-personal
information" to be information that, by itself, cannot be used
to identify or contact you personally, such as demographic
information (your age, gender, income, education,
profession, zip code, etc.). Non-personal information may
also include technical information, such as your IP address
and other anonymous data involving your use of the Service.
Non-personal information may also include information that
you provide us through your use of the Service, such as the
terms you enter into the search functions of Social Hub, mail
inbox and instant messenger. We reserve the right to use or
disclose non-personal information in any way we see fit.
USE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Our Services
We use your personal information to provide you with any
services that you may request or require, to communicate
with you and to allow you to participate in online surveys. We
use aggregated non-personal information about our users to
understand the demographics of users of the Service, such
as the percentage of male and female users, the geographic
distribution of our users, the age ranges of our users, a
combination of these and/or other demographics. We may
also use the personal or non-personal information we collect
to analyze how Service is being used, and to improve the
content of the Service, and for marketing and promotional
efforts.
E-mail Communications
If you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, we
may use your personal information to respond to your
questions or comments, and we may save your questions or
comments for future reference. Aside from our reply to such
an e-mail, it is not our standard practice to send you e-mail
unless you request a particular service that involves e-mail
communications. However, you consent to us contacting you
by e-mail, and sending you information about products and
services which we believe may be of interest to you. You may
have the opportunity to subscribe to an electronic newsletter
in which case information about the Service or our
advertisers will be sent to your e-mail address. We will
provide you with the option to change your preferences and
opt-out of receiving those communications. You may request
Warranty Information
234
at any time that we not e-mail you in future by clicking the
"unsubscribe" link which is included at the bottom of any
e-mail that you receive from us. If you unsubscribe, we will
make reasonable efforts to discontinue e-mail
communications to you as soon as practicable.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO
THIRD PARTIES
Aggregate Information
Except as specifically set forth in this Privacy Policy, we do
not share your personal information with any third party
without your permission. We may disclose aggregate
information, such as demographic information, and our
statistical analyses to third parties, including advertisers or
other business partners. This aggregate information does not
include your personal information.
Service Providers
We sometimes engage unaffiliated businesses to assist us in
providing you certain services. For example, we may use
third parties to provide advertising, marketing and
promotional assistance, provide e-mail services, or facilitate
our online services. In those instances, we may need to
share your personal information with them.
235
We require these companies to use your personal
information only to provide the particular product or service
and do not authorize them to use your personal information
for any other reason. We sometimes offer promotions in
conjunction with a third party sponsor.
If you choose to participate in those promotions, we may
share your information with the sponsor if they need it to
send you a product or other special promotion they offer.
Third Party Advertisers
We may use third-party advertising companies to deliver
specific advertisements to you. These companies may collect
non-personal information about your visits to Social Hub in
order to provide advertisements about products and services
that may be of interest to you.
These companies may also aggregate your non-personal
information for use in targeted advertising, marketing
research, and other similar purposes. These companies may
place their own cookies on your computer. If you want to
prevent a third-party advertiser from collecting and using this
information, you may visit each third party advertiser's
website directly and opt-out.
Other Disclosures
We may disclose personal information when we are required
or requested to do so by law, court order or other
government or law enforcement authority or regulatory
agency; to enforce or apply our rights and agreements; or
when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information
is necessary or advisable, including, for example, to protect
the rights, property, or safety of the Service and Samsung,
our users, or others.
CHILDREN
The Service is not designed for use by children without their
parent's supervision. We ask that anyone under the age of
sixteen (16) not submit any personal information through the
Service. We do not knowingly collect any personal
information from children under the age of eighteen, and
therefore we do not knowingly distribute such information to
third parties.
SECURITY OF THE INFORMATION WE
COLLECT
The security of your personal information is important to us.
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards
to secure your personal information. However, there is
always some risk in transmitting information electronically.
The personal information we collect is stored within
databases that we control.
As we deem appropriate, we use security measures
consistent with industry standards, such as firewalls and
encryption technology, to protect your information. However,
we cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can
we guarantee that information you supply won't be
intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
CHAT ROOMS AND OTHER PUBLIC
AREAS
Our third party service and content providers may offer chat,
user reviews, bulletin boards, or other public functions and
any posting by you is considered public information available
to other users. Any posting is governed in accordance with
the third party service and content providers' terms and
conditions. You should take care not to use personal
information in your screen name or other information that
might be publicly available to other users.
Archived Information
We maintain archives of web logs, database, and other
systems and information in relation to the Service. Please
note that it is possible some of this information may remain
Warranty Information
236
archived after we delete the information from its active
database. We maintain archives for disaster recovery, legal
and other non-marketing purposes.
How can I update my profile?
You can help us maintain the accuracy of your profile by
notifying us when you change zip/postal code, country of
residence, age range, or e-mail address. If at any time you
wish to update your information or stop receiving
communication from us, sign in to the Service and then
select 'update your profile' to change your preferences.
CONTESTS AND SWEEPSTAKES
Registration may be required to enter promotions such as
contests and sweepstakes on Social Hub. These registration
or entry processes may require your submission of personal
information such as your first and last name, street address,
city, state and zip code, e-mail address, telephone number
and date of birth. The entry page and/or rules for the
promotion will provide the specific requirements for the
promotion. You may also have the opportunity to opt-in to
special offers from our advertisers in connection with these
promotions.
237
ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION WE
COLLECT
Any questions you may have regarding this Privacy Policy,
the accuracy of your personal information or the use of your
personal information, or any requests that we correct,
update, or remove your information in our databases, should
be directed via e-mail to [email protected], or via
regular mail to:
Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC
1301 E. Lookout Drive, Richardson, TX 75082
Attn: Customer Support Department
After receiving a request to change your information, we will
make reasonable efforts to ensure that all of your personal
information stored in databases we actively use to operate
the Service will be updated, corrected, changed or deleted,
as appropriate, as soon as reasonably practicable. However,
we reserve the right to retain in our archival files any
information we remove from or change in our active
databases. We may retain such information to resolve
disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our Terms.
In addition, it is not technologically possible to remove each
and every record of the information you have provided to us.
A copy of your personal information may exist in a
non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to
locate.
CHANGES TO PRIVACY POLICY
This Privacy Policy is effective as of May 29, 2010 and
complies with Samsung's Corporate Privacy Policy. We
reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time,
and will post any such changes to this Privacy Policy on the
Social Hub website. Please refer back to the Social Hub
website on a regular basis to obtain the most up to date
