We obtain information about you when you use our website, for example, when you contact us about our services or sign-up to use our services via our online billing platforms.

What type of information is collected from you?

The personal information we collect might include your name, address, email address, contact number, IP address, and information regarding what pages of our websites are accessed and when. If you purchase a service from us online, your payment information (Credit/Debit card/PayPal/Direct Debit) is not held by us, it is collected by our third party payment processors, who specialise in the secure online capture, storage and processing of transactions.

Do you store my credit card information?

How is your information used?

We may use your information to:

  • ‣ Provision any orders that you have submitted to us including those for recurring services so that we know who is using them;
  • ‣ Issue VAT invoices for the services being taken;
  • ‣ Carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into by you and us;

In both cases this is done over an SSL encrypted connection to their servers.

How you can access/correct your information

You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect by logging into your password-protected ItsmirHosting account and selecting to update your 'My Details'. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. You can also correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

The right to erasure (also known as the 'right to be forgotten')

You may request that we delete your personally identifiable information, and we shall attempt to accommodate such requests.  However, we may retain and use this information for such periods of time as required or permitted by law or best business practices.

Your personal information following termination of account

When your ItsmirHosting account is terminated/cancelled (either voluntarily or involuntarily) all of your personally identifiable information is placed in “deactivated” status within our corresponding databases. However, you should know that deactivation of your account does not mean your personally identifiable information has been deleted from our database entirely. We will retain and use your personally identifiable information if necessary in order to resolve disputes or enforce our agreements.

Law Enforcement

We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about users upon a valid request by government or law officials that we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including without limitation subpoenas), to protect your property and rights, or the property and rights of a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to stop activity that we consider illegal or unethical.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you send us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely. All information that you submit via our websites and online portal (including credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected with 128 Bit encryption via SSL (browser url starts with https and padlock will appear in address bar). The data is stored on servers that only our own staff fully administrate and protect with hardware firewalls.

Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have issued (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access the online portal, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
