Electronic Communications Protocols and Cookies
Webhosting.net may receive data from you as part of the communication connection itself through the standard electronic greeting between your computer and Webhosting.net’s servers. This information often consists of network routing (where you came from), equipment information (browser type), internet protocol address, date, and time. Webhosting.net’s server will also query your computer to see if there are “cookies” previously set up by Webhosting.net to facilitate login or other website navigation procedures. A “cookie” is a small piece of information sent by a webserver to store in a web browser so it can later be read back from that browser.
Cookies on the website may collect the following information: a unique identifier, user preferences and profile information used to personalize the content that is shown, and user information to access user forums. Some cookies Webhosting.net uses may remain on the user’s computer after the user leaves the website, but the majority is set to expire within 30 to 365 days. Certain tools may have some cookies that have a longer duration. Cookies may also be of benefit to you by creating a more streamlined login process, keeping track of shopping cart additions, or preserving order information between sessions. In the future, as Webhosting.net enables further customization of the website, cookies will help in ensuring that information provided to you will be the most relevant to your needs.
Browsers provide you with information and control over cookies. You can set your web browser to alert you when a cookie is being used. You can also get information on the duration of the cookie and what server your data is being returned to. You then have the opportunity to accept or reject the cookie. Additionally, you can set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. You can generally disable the cookie feature on your browser without affecting your ability to use the website, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature or to provide functionality necessary for transaction completion.
