LerriHost may collect the following Personal Information from you: name, address, telephone number, postal address, e-mail address, IP address, information about the type of browser you use, your operating system, the screen resolution of your browser, your ISP, which pages you view on the Website and the time and duration of your visits to the Website, credit card number (in the case of direct customers) and, if applicable, company name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number or tax ID number as well as similar information concerning technical contacts, marketing contacts, and executive contacts within your company or organisation.
If you communicate with LerriHost, LerriHost may collect information relating to that communication whether it takes the form of e-mail, letter, forum posting, testimonials or any other form of communication between you and LerriHost or submitted by you to the Website (collectively, “User Communications”).
If you use one of LerriHost’ software products such as LerriHost’ Web Hosting, Billing and Automation Solution, LerriHost may collect certain information concerning such software and concerning the server upon which the software operates. This information includes without limitation: (a) the licensed or unlicensed status of the software; (b) the source from which the license for the software was obtained (i.e., LerriHost or a LerriHost affiliate); or (c) information about the server upon which the software is installed including (i) the public IP address, (ii) the operating system and (iii) the use of any virtualization technologies on such server ((a) through (c) collectively, “Server Information”)). Additionally, “Server Information” may also include information collected by LerriHost from time to time concerning which features of the software are most often used in order to improve and make adjustments to the software; and information collected from you by LerriHost in the event that you request technical support services including without limitation, IP addresses, usernames and passwords necessary to login to SSH, the root directory of the server upon which you installed the LerriHost software and any affected accounts including email accounts, MySQL accounts and other accounts.
LerriHost also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. LerriHost may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose.
What information does LerriHost collect if you’re under the age of 13?
LerriHost does not knowingly collect Personal Information about children under the age of 13. If LerriHost becomes aware that it has inadvertently collected Personal Information about children under the age of 13, it will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible, except where LerriHost is required by applicable law to keep it.
Where LerriHost knows a child is above the age of 13, but considered a minor under applicable law, LerriHost will obtain parental/guardian consent prior to using that child’s Personal Information.
How does LerriHost use and store the information it collects?
As a general matter, LerriHost may use the Personal Information you disclose to LerriHost to improve and provide the Website, the Services and LerriHost’ other products and services, and for the specific purpose that you gave LerriHost your Personal Information. More specific details on how LerriHost use your information follows below.
LerriHost may use Personal Information to create and authenticate your account, to process transactions you request such as software license purchases in order to perform any contract you have entered into with LerriHost, to provide you with customer and technical support and to communicate with you about your account and LerriHost’ products and services.
The Personal Information you provide to LerriHost allows LerriHost to provide you with the newsletters and mailing lists that you have signed up for with LerriHost. If you do not want to be on LerriHost’ mailing list, you can opt out at any time by changing your settings in your ‘My Details’ page within the client area.
LerriHost may also use Personal Information to offer, market or advertise to you LerriHost products and services. While such LerriHost products and services may reference, incorporate or include third-party products and services, LerriHost will not use your Personal Information to independently offer, market or advertise third-party products and services unless LerriHost first obtain your consent to do so.
From time to time, LerriHost may use your Personal Information to send important notices, such as important product updates and communications about purchases as well as changes to LerriHost’ terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important for your interaction with LerriHost you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
Where you consent to LerriHost doing so, LerriHost may use your Personal Information to send you direct marketing communications. Should you ever choose to ‘opt out’ of receiving such communications LerriHost may retain your Personal Information on file to ensure that LerriHost do not continue to target you with communications of the type that you have asked LerriHost to cease sending to you.
In accordance with established policies and procedures, LerriHost will periodically destroy or erase any Personal Information that is no longer needed.
LerriHost may use User Communications in the same way as LerriHost uses Personal Information. If you communicate with LerriHost for a particular purpose, LerriHost may use your User Communications for that purpose. For example, if you contact LerriHost for technical support, LerriHost may use your communications to provide technical support to you.
LerriHost may use Server Information to provide you with technical support services and to maintain, evaluate, improve and provide LerriHost products and services. LerriHost may also use such information to investigate unlicensed (and therefore unauthorised) uses of LerriHost’ software.
