Like most website operators, Give It Web Hosting collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Give It Web Hosting's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Give It Web Hosting's visitors use its website. From time to time, Give It Web Hosting may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate. e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Give It Web Hosting's website choose to interact with Give It Web Hosting in ways that require Give It Web Hosting to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Give It Web Hosting gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, if a visitor chooses to sign up for our newsletter, we would request their name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Give It Web Hosting, usually by purchasing web hosting services or registering a domain name, for example, are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Give It Web Hosting collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Give It Web Hosting. Give It Web Hosting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities, including from becoming a customer of Give It Web Hosting.
In some cases, Give It Web Hosting will ask website visitors wishing to become customers of Give It Web Hosting to provide additional information beyond what was requested in the signup form. This information is requested to verify the customer's identity and to reduce the likelihood of fraud, which is common in the web hosting industry in which Give It Web Hosting operates. Customers not wishing to provide such information as requested may not be permitted to become customers of Give It Web Hosting.
The information that Give It Web Hosting collects in connection with its services is hosted on servers located in the United States (U.S.) unless otherwise provided, and may be processed or accessed outside of the European Economic Area countries by us or our service providers. By using Give It Web Hosting’s services, you freely and expressly give Give It Web Hosting your consent to export your information and data outside of the European Economic Area.
Give It Web Hosting may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites and its customers. For instance, Give It Web Hosting may publish the number of emails sent per month or the total number of installations of a certain software package. Give It Web Hosting may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Give It Web Hosting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Disclosure of Personally-Identifying Information
Give It Web Hosting discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Give It Web Hosting's behalf or to provide services available to Give It Web Hosting's customers, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of the United States; by using Give It Web Hosting's products and services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Give It Web Hosting will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Give It Web Hosting may access, preserve and share information about customers with companies, organizations, governmental entities or individuals outside of Give It Web Hosting if we believe, in good faith, that the law requires us to do so. This may include, but is not limited to, responding to subpoenas, court orders or other legal processes (such as law enforcement requests). We also may access, preserve and share information about customers as necessary to: (i) establish or exercise Give It Web Hosting’s legal rights or defend against any legal claim including threatened claims involving Give It Web Hosting based on the anonymity of a domain name; (ii) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected fraud or other illegal activities; (iii) prevent death or serious physical harm to any person; or (iv) investigate violations of Give It Web Hosting’s Terms of Service.
If you are a customer of Give It Web Hosting and have supplied your email address, Give It Web Hosting may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new products or services, solicit your feedback, inform you of an outage or interruption in service, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Give It Web Hosting and our products and services. We primarily use our blog, forums, Twitter account, and similar presences to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or through our billing system), we reserve the right to publish it (with personally identifiable information removed as necessary) in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other customers. Give It Web Hosting takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
