  3. Directly from Users.

 

5. Information Hostfury.net Collects from Web Server Logs

6. Information Collected by Hostfury.net Directly from Users

 

a. Registration Information

To purchase services from Hostfury.net, Users must provide detailed information including contact information to Hostfury.net. Users are required to provide this information to Hostfury.net in order to purchase Hostfury.net services. During the purchase process, Users may provide optional information to Hostfury.net. If that information is provided, it is covered by this Privacy Policy; however, providing it is voluntary. This information is a subset of Identification Tools, and is referred to individually as “Registration Information.”

 

b. Identification Tools

Hostfury.net may use automated Identification Tools like cookies and Google Analytics. Each of these Identification Tools work differently, however, they all collect information related to the website you came to Hostfury.net from, a User’s operating system, browser type, where Users go on Hostfury.net’s website, length of time on Hostfury.net’s website, and where a User goes after visiting Hostfury.net’s website. In addition, Identification Tools may keep Users logged into Hostfury.net’s system. From time-to-time, Hostfury.net may use Identification Tools that will be used to serve advertising and other information to Users after they visit Hostfury.net’s website. Because the technologies underlying Identification Tools differ, Users may, or may not, be able to choose not to provide information to them.

 

c. Support Information

When Users contact Hostfury.net for support for their services they will be asked to match certain information that is in their Registration Information. This information will be used to identify them personally. In the course of providing support to Users, Hostfury.net may annotate the Registration Information with information disclosed while providing support (Support Information).

 

7. Security Monitoring

 

Hostfury.net takes the security of its network very seriously. To ensure network security, data integrity and privacy, Hostfury.net uses programs that monitor network traffic and access to its network. These programs collect information regarding User’s use of Hostfury.net’s services, website and network (Traffic Information).

 

8. How Hostfury.net Uses Information Covered by this Privacy Policy

 

a. Generally

i. Hostfury.net is required to comply with relevant laws, regulations and judicial orders. Information covered by this Privacy Policy may be disclosed outside Hostfury.net if Hostfury.net determines, in its sole discretion, that such a disclosure is necessary or required. Hostfury.net may also disclose this information if, in its sole discretion, such disclosure is necessary or required to protect its interests or the interests of its customers.

ii. Hostfury.net may disclose information covered by this Privacy Policy in connection with the sale of its business.

v. Hostfury.net may use information covered by this Privacy Policy to inform you of new products and services. In informing you of new products and services, Hostfury.net may include third party products and services. While Hostfury.net may use information that identifies you individually to market these third party products and services, that information is not disclosed to the third parties. In this use of User information, third parties will only receive aggregate information. However, should a User respond to a marketing announcement, third parties will become aware of the User individually.

When Hostfury.net asks Users to provide financial information (such as a credit card number) that data is protected using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Electronic communication (for example: email, online chat, or instant messaging) that Users may send Hostfury.net may not be secure unless Hostfury.net advises a User in advance that security measures will be in place prior to transmitting the information. Users should not send confidential information such as financial information, social security numbers or passwords to Hostfury.net through unsecured electronic communication.
