Studyhost respects the privacy of every individual who visits its Web sites and uses its services. This privacy statement provides notice of the standards and terms under which Studyhost protects the privacy of information supplied by visitors to sites on the World Wide Web that are owned and operated by Studyhost, including www.studyhost.co.uk. This privacy statement provides notice of our information collection practices and of the ways in which your information may be used. This policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically to review this information.
Studyhost typically receives specific data about its Web site visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information, purchase or enroll for services, provide resume information for employment opportunities, or send us e-mail. Of course, some of these activities require that you give us information, such as when you make a purchase, use a credit card or electronic payment service to pay for Studyhost services, submit your resume, or request certain types of information.
We collect the following types of information about you.
When you provide personally identifiable information to Studyhost through one of our Web sites, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. However, Studyhost reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about your Studyhost services.
Studyhost occasionally sends service communication e-mails through www.studyhost.co.uk. The service communication e-mails are essential to our registering you for service and to our continuing provision of services to you. Therefore, you may not opt out of receiving these e-mail messages.
Studyhost will not, however, sell, trade, or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to any person. On those Studyhost sites where you may provide Studyhost with credit card, electronic payment service, or other ordering information via the Web, Studyhost protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary Web-based security and encryption protocols, an example of which is the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Studyhost will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Studyhost assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.
In general, Studyhost gathers some generic information automatically. Generic information does not reveal the identity of the visitor. It usually includes information about the Internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors, and the Studyhost sites visited. Studyhost gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and Web site needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies, including "cookies" (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about Studyhost services). Studyhost does not combine information collected in this way with any personally identifiable information. You can set your Web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it. However, refusing some cookies may make it impossible to use or navigate the Studyhost Web site properly.
The Live Chat system that Studyhost uses for customer support is a one-on-one chat. Studyhost owns or licenses the Live Chat software and operates it on Studyhost's server and network. No third party collects any information that you provide through the Live Chat system. Studyhost may retain and use logs of the Live Chat sessions for any of the following purposes:
Notwithstanding the foregoing and in compliance with applicable laws, Studyhost (i) cooperates fully with state, local, and federal officials in any investigation relating to any content (including personal or private electronic communications transmitted to Studyhost) or purported unlawful activities of any user of the Studyhost Service, and (ii) takes reasonable measures to protect its proprietary rights. For the limited purposes of accomplishing such cooperation and measures and in compliance with applicable laws, Studyhost may be required to disclose personally identifiable information.
In addition, Studyhost may elect to monitor the areas of communication of any kind (i) to satisfy any law, regulation, or government request; (ii) if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate Studyhost's business; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of Studyhost or others.
In connection with the potential or actual sale or transfer of any of its interest in www.studyhost.co.uk, and other sites owned by Studyhost, and any of the assets or stock of the company, Studyhost reserves the right to sell or transfer your information (including, but not limited to, name, address information, and other information you provided to Studyhost) to a third party that (i) concentrates its business in Web hosting or communication products or services; (ii) agrees to be Studyhost's successor in interest with regard to the maintenance and protection of information collected and maintained by Studyhost; and (iii) agrees to the obligations of this privacy statement. To the extent it is practicable to do so, this paragraph shall also apply in the event of any bankruptcy proceedings involving Studyhost.
In the event that Studyhost plans to transfer your information to a third party incident to a potential or actual sale of any of Studyhost's assets or stock, or incident to any bankruptcy proceedings involving Studyhost, Studyhost will:
AS A MATERIAL CONDITION OF USING THIS WEB SITE OR STUDYHOST, HOSTING SERVICES, OR BOTH, CUSTOMER AND STUDYHOST AGREE THAT THE USE OF THIS SITE IS BOUND AND GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM, REGARDLESS OF WHERE CUSTOMER MAY RESIDE, ACCESS THE INTERNET, OR CONDUCT HIS, HER, OR ITS BUSINESS.
MOREOVER, CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT STUDYHOST RECEIVES AND STORES PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION ON SERVERS LOCATED WITHIN THE UNITED KINGDOM. FURTHERMORE, CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES TO SUCH FLOWS OF HIS OR HER PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION ACROSS BORDERS FROM HIS OR HER COUNTRY.
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may update it by making the change on our member information page or by e-mailing our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use other third parties to provide various additional services for you on our Web site. When you sign up for the additional services, we will share certain elements of the information you provide to us as necessary for the third party to provide that service.
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently.
If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, or by means of a notice via email.
