Using COOKIES on the company’s website


The website uses small text files which are stored on your PC or mobile device (cookies) when you visit the company’s website.
hostslb uses two types of cookies: persistent and session.
Session cookies expire when the browser is closed, while persistent cookies remain in operation until their ‘lifetime’ is up (for example, the partner’s time limit) or until they are deliberately deleted.
hostslb also uses cookies from analytical services such as Google Analytics or Yandex.Metrica.
These files help hostslb give you the best possible user experience, remember your login information, and save your language and currency preferences.
Moreover, cookies allow hostslb to assess the efficiency of its marketing activities.
Every user has the right to disable and/or delete cookies even if the user previously agreed to use these files.
Cookies can be deleted by emptying the browser’s cookies storage (press F1 on your keyboard and search for the instructions as to how it can be done in your browser’s guide).
However, hostslb arns its users that disabling cookies can lead to the loss of user’s preferences.
hostslb is not responsible for the services unavailability due to your refusal to use cookies.

Customer Personal Data Storage & Protection


All personal information obtained from users during registration or collected while providing services is transmitted only via channels secured by SSL, as can be verified by customer web browser security tools.
Customer personal data is never transmitted openly (without encryption) over the network.
Access to customer information is limited even among our staff at hostslb.
Only hostslb senior management has full access to customer data, while other staff only has access to the information required to perform certain tasks (for example, tech support staff can only access data required to identify the user and technical data on the user’s orders, but accounting department staff cannot access the user’s technical data, account information, etc.)
All customer data, including confidential information, is stored separately from customer virtual servers, on a specially designated physical server.

Customer Changes to Personal Data


Every customer has the opportunity to make changes to the personal data provided at registration at any point.
However, our website history stores all the initial data and tracks all the changes made by the user, while also storing the date and time the changes were introduced.
In case the customer’s account is deleted (if service provision is terminated), all user information remains in the database; it is stored for no less than 12 months or even longer at hostslb discretion.

Customer’s Obligations with Regards to Personal Data Security


Our customers shall safely store their hostslb account access information as its sharing or compromising might lead to customer personal data disclosure without the customer’s consent.
However, the very access to personal data stored on the hostslb website account (with the relevant access data) is a regular (normal) occurrence and does not constitute a case of customer personal data disclosure nor does it breach our Privacy Policy. In other words, if you share your password with someone, than you give them permission to view your personal data. Accessing customer data after entering the appropriate password is not a breach of this Privacy Policy.
For security purposes the user shall Log Out of the account upon exiting the system. This is applicable to public computers as we as your personal/work computer.

to contact the customer using the contact details provided;
to identify the user as a legitimate customer;
to formalize an agreement or to prepare other types of documents, invoices, etc.;
