Host4Go.com ("Host4Go") has developed this privacy statement to validate our commitment to confidentiality to all our customers and users who use Host4Go' online services ("Services"). These services consist of domain purchase, transfer and management, shared web hosting, virtual private servers, data backups and dedicated servers.
Host4Go is committed to crafting long lasting relationships based on trust and transparency. All of us at Host4Go always has and always will do anything reasonably within our power to ensure your right to privacy is preserved. Our services are not directed at anyone under the age of thirteen.
On occasion Host4Go requests and gathers personal information from our clients in a variety of ways. These consist of online data entry forms for ordering products and services, communicating with the Host4Go staff, as well as other instances where users can volunteer their own private information.
The data we gather is undeniably personal and can be used to identify you, which is exactly why we take privacy so seriously and also why it is a necessary evil. Personal information plays a commanding role when conducting business online in a secure manner.
Some of the data gathered can consist of but is not limited to:
Complete address and location
Personal and company web addresses
Given name and surname
Credit card information
Other billing information
A cookie can be fundamentally defined as a piece of data that is stored on a clients computer which identifies information about that specific client. Host4Go on occasion can make use of both session identifier cookies as well as persistent cookies. With session identifier cookies once the browser is closed or logged out of, the cookie is automatically erased. A persistent cookie on the other hand is a minor text file that is stored on your hard drive for a prolonged period of time.
Similar to most websites out there, Host4Go uses log files for both security and to streamline our services. This is a form of data gathering which may include information such as internet protocol addresses, internet service providers, browser type and versions, referring and exit pages, platforms, date and time stamps, number of clicks for trend analysing as well as gathering very broad demographic information. Similar to the cookie scenario none of the information stored in these log files contain individually distinguishable data.
Host4Go may use any of the individually distinguishable data gathered by Host4Go to contact our clients concerning services offered by Host4Go, and to the extent the client has agreed, by trusted business partners, affiliates or independent contractors.
Host4Go may also use any of the gathered data for analysis on the success of our services and advertising efforts. Under no condition other than legal action or our client specifically authorizing such disclosures will Host4Go ever share this information with a third party.
Although unlikely and not in the foreseeable future, Host4Go does reserve the right to disclose completely anonymous data to investors and/or possible partners. In this case purely basic information will be disclosed and individually distinguishable data will remain completely private. In the case of Host4Go being sold, the information collected from our clients may be transferred to the new owner(s) under the condition that all individually distinguishable data will remain private.
Host4Go may on occasion interact with a third party consultant, advisor, marketing team or IT professional where it may become necessary to disclose private data. Everything disclosed under these terms will require the third party to treat all data, especially individually distinguishable data with the same concern and respect that Host4Go does. All third parties are prohibited from disclosing such data to any other person or party.
On occasion and on no particular schedule our clients may receive details on special offers, general newsletters as well as service updates.
Although Host4Go takes every precaution to maintain your confidentiality, on occasion a need may arise where we can and should disclose personally identifiable information if required by law. These disclosures will only occur if Host4Go has a good-faith belief that such action is necessary or Host4Go is required to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served to Host4Go.
The majority of the data gathered by Host4Go is saved indefinitely and for security and data preservation reasons may be saved on more than one database that may be directly or indirectly supported by Host4Go.
Though impossible to absolutely guarantee that misuse, abuse, adjustment or loss to the data will not occur over time, Host4Go makes every possible effort within reason to avert such incidences.
