What Personal Information About Customers Does Hostito Gather?
Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our web site or give us in any other way. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, providing our services (e.g., domain name registration, web hosting), and communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Internet companies, we sometimes use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our sites. Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) click stream to, through, and from our Web site, including date and time. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
What Are Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser.
Does Hostito Share the Information It Receives?
Yes, we do share information, but only as described below. Otherwise we will not provide your personal information without your consent.
We partner with other parties to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.
We engage other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, including processing credit card payments, providing marketing assistance, providing customer services, sending postal mail and e-mail to you, removing repetitive information from customer lists, and analyzing data. These persons have access to personal information needed to perform their functions. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information that you provide to Hostito for any secondary purposes.
We engage other companies and individuals to perform enhanced services on our behalf. Many of these service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or their assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, if Hostito, Inc. or all or substantially all of its assets were ever to be acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Service Level Agreement and other agreements and policies; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Hostito, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input and the information we may send to our agents.
Hostito has gone to great lengths to ensure your information is securely obtained and held in compliance with the Card Holder Information Security Program. For example, we encrypt your credit card number before it is stored in our database. This ensures that no one may access your credit card from our system.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
What Information Can I Access?
Hostito gives you access to certain information about you for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. To view or change this information, log in to your account. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records.
Web sites provided by Hostito contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave any of our web sites and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.
Hostito does not sell services for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use our services only with involvement of a parent or guardian.
