PRIVACY POLICY

PraHost We respect your right to privacy and support the recently introduced General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforced on 25th May 2018. In the following sections we will cover which data we collect, how that data is used, where that data is processed, how we secure that data and how you can update, correct or opt-out that data being used.

Right to provide consent

By agreeing to this Privacy Policy you declare that you are legally a minimum of 13 years of age, and therefore entitled to provide consent under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for processing of your personal data. At this time we do not provide service to individuals below 13 years of age.

Transfer of data outside of the European Union (EU)

In order to provide our products, services and associated supporting infrastructure, it is necessary for PraHost to transfer your personal data outside of the European Union (EU). Any questions or requests regarding your data should be addressed to info[at]prahost.com.


PraHost collects data from users for the following purposes:

We collect your personal information when you purchase our products or services, submit a support ticket or contact us via email. In order to complete purchase of our products or services and in the interests of security, you may be asked to provide your full name, email address, mailing address, phone number, business/organisational information (if applicable) and other personal information.

As a provider of Domain registration also known as a "Domain registrar" and SSL certificates, we are required to provide certain information to our trusted 3rd parties in order to provide those services. This may include personal data such as full name, physical address of the customer or business/organisation and telephone number.

The trusted 3rd party of Domain registration will make such information publicly accessible through the use of Domain WHOIS lookups. The trusted 3rd party of SSL certificates will make information such as Organisation Name, Department, Location/City, State/Province and Country available to the public. By purchasing a Domain or SSL certificate the customer agrees that we will transfer his/her personal data to our trusted 3rd party, in order to provide that product or service.

We will not sell, exchange or transfer your public or private personal information outside of PraHost, its associated trading names, trusted partners and 3rd parties without your consent, other than the exceptions listed below.

Your information may be temporarily shared with Maxmind, an online fraud prevention provider widely used throughout the web hosting and e-commerce industries. We also use your personal data to process payments and prepare invoices.

PraHost only cooperates with such a ruling if we have established that the ruling meets the legal requirements.
