The UT System Office of Telecommunication Services (OTS), which operates the Texas Higher Education Network (THEnet) and the UT System Network (UTSN), is committed to ensuring the privacy and accuracy of your confidential information. As such, OTS treats your information in accordance with the UT System Privacy Policy.

Specifically, we use the information gathered from our Web forms and email correspondence — names, organizations, telephone numbers, and email addresses — to communicate directly with THEnet and UTSN members and to manage, maintain, and troubleshoot network connections by communicating with THEnet and UTSN members, circuit carriers, Internet service providers, and ARIN (the American Registry for Internet Numbers). Please note that domain and IP network number contact information is considered public information and therefore may be published.

We will not sell, share or distribute your information to organizations other than those listed above. However, because OTS is a public institution, some information collected from THEnet and UTSN members may be subject to the Texas Public Information Act. This means that while we do not actively share information, in some cases we may be compelled by law to release information.

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or dealings with this Web site, contact the UT System Office of Telecommunication Services at or the The University of Texas System Administration at
