1.) Information We Collect

1.) Subscriber Information

Subscribers are asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for Lumina Host services including name, postal address, email address, telephone number, and billing information (such as a credit card number). In addition, to register a domain name, Subscribers are asked to provide this information for the registrant, administrative contact, technical contact and billing contact of the domain name (collectively, "Domain Name Registration Information"), for submission to the appropriate domain registry or registration database. Subscribers may also be asked to complete an online form that collects information about demographics, product usage and preferences, along with other information that will help us improve our products and services.

2.) Social Media

Lumina Host's website includes social media features (such as the Facebook "Like" button). These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on our website, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets may be hosted by a third party or directly on Lumina Host's website. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the feature.

3.) Cookies and Tracking

Lumina Host uses different types of cookies (which are electronic collections of information stored on a local computer that are used by websites to keep track of visitors and registered users and to relate one computer transaction to a later one) and other methods of uniquely tracking visitors for different purposes. For example, some cookies are "required cookies" which are necessary for Lumina Host's website to work. In addition, cookies are used to provide Lumina Host's existing Subscribers with the opportunity for continued savings and increased convenience as described in more detail below.

a.) Cookies for Improving Our Web Site

Lumina Host uses "performance cookies" to inform Lumina Host of a repeat visit. However, these cookies do not tell Lumina Host who a visitor is, the visitor's name, email address, or passwords.

b.) Cookies for Banner Rewards Program

To offer Lumina Host Subscribers continued savings, Lumina Host uses cookies to help monitor the traffic generated from Lumina Host banners and logo buttons displayed on Lumina Host Subscribers' websites.

c.) Cookies for Subscriber Account Management

For Lumina Host Subscribers, Lumina Host uses "functional cookies" to store user names for added convenience. For example, the cookie would contain a piece of identifying information such as a customer ID, username, or session ID that would be used to look up the customer ID. Lumina Host offers password-protected, web-based management tools as part of its webhosting packages. By storing a Subscriber's username in a cookie, the Subscriber will not have to fill out form fields each time he or she manages the account. (The cookie does not store passwords.)

d.) Cookies for Advertising

Lumina Host may also utilize "advertising cookies" to track referrals from internal and external affiliates, as well as advertising campaigns. Lumina Host may also use a third party service provider to send emails that you have agreed to receive. Pixel tags and cookies may be used in those email messages to help Lumina Host measure the effectiveness of its advertising and to enable Lumina Host to provide more focused marketing communications to you.

You may set your web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or change the settings on your web browser to clear or disable cookies. If you decide not to accept cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of all of the features of Lumina Host's website. Additionally, please be aware that if you visit third party websites where you are prompted to log in or that are customizable, you may be required to accept cookies. Cookies do not enable third parties to access any of your personal (i.e., contact) information. However, advertisers and partners may also use their own cookies. Lumina Host does not control use of these cookies and are not responsible for information collected through them.

4.) Customer Surveys

Lumina Host may periodically conduct customer surveys. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary. However, we encourage Subscribers to participate in these surveys because they provide Lumina Host with important information that helps improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information, if provided, will remain confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party service provider on our behalf.

5.) Collection by Linked Websites

Lumina Host may provide links to some third party websites as a convenience. Please exercise care when visiting linked websites. The linked websites have separate and independent privacy statements, notices and terms of use which we recommend you read carefully. When you visit or make purchases through these third party sites, you may be asked to provide personal information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information. Please note that in such cases, you are providing information to a third party and Lumina Host has no control over such third party's use of any information you provide and, therefore, Lumina Host has no responsibility or liability for the manner in which the third party that operates a linked website may collect, use, disclose, secure or otherwise treat your personal information. Except as provided herein, Lumina Host will not provide any of your personal information to any third parties without your consent.

2.) Use of Information

Lumina Host uses information it collects primarily to provide and collect payment for its cloud-based solutions and other services. Passively collected information, such as information collected from or about your device including through the placement or reading of cookies or other tracking technologies is used to provide a customized experience as you use Lumina Host's services.

1.) Subscriber Contact/Account Information

The information collected from Subscribers is used to manage each Subscriber's account (such as for billing and account management purposes) and to promote other products or services that Lumina Host believes may be of interest to its Subscribers. Lumina Host may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from information that Subscribers provide during registration (such as the total number of Subscribers in a given category, but not their names). As explained in more detail below, Lumina Host may in certain instances use this aggregated and non-identifying information to promote advertisements that appear on Lumina Host's website and in connection with its services. Any such aggregated and non-identifying information that Lumina Host collects, and any analysis of such information that it produces, is proprietary information of Lumina Host.

2.) Analytics/Statistics

Lumina Host uses information gathered from its website analytics (for example, User IP addresses) to help diagnose problems with Lumina Host servers, and to administer and optimize Lumina Host's website. Lumina Host also gathers broad demographic information from this data to help improve its website and make your browsing and purchasing experience more responsive, efficient, or enjoyable. Any statistics gathered by Lumina Host are proprietary property of Lumina Host.

1.) Confidentiality

Lumina Host will not provide or sell to any third party your personal information and will keep all Subscriber information confidential, subject to the following:

2.) Service Providers

Upon registration for Lumina Host services, certain Subscriber information may be transferred to trusted affiliated or unaffiliated third parties that help Lumina Host provide certain services or that provide certain services on Lumina Host's behalf.

3.) Co-marketing Activities

Some services are offered or promoted in conjunction with a Lumina Host partner or sponsor. Lumina Host may share certain Subscriber contact information but no billing information with Lumina Host's partner or sponsor in order to provide the relevant services or to run the promotion. If Lumina Host shares Subscriber information with partners and sponsors, Lumina Host requires that they maintain the Subscriber information in confidence, and use the information solely for purposes of providing the services or carrying out the agreed upon promotion.

4.) Online Advertisements

Lumina Host does not share personally identifiable information about individual users with advertisers. Lumina Host may display online advertisements and share aggregated and non-identifying information about Subscribers collected through the registration process or through online surveys and promotions with certain advertisers. This aggregated and non-identifying information may be used to deliver tailored advertisements. For example, an advertiser may tell Lumina Host the audience it wants to reach (e.g., males between 25 and 55 years of age) and provide Lumina Host with an advertisement tailored to that audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information collected by Lumina Host, Lumina Host may then display the advertisement to the intended audience.

5.) Legal Reasons

Lumina Host may access, preserve and share Subscriber information with companies, organizations, governmental entities or individuals outside of Lumina Host if we believe, in good faith, that the law requires us to do so. This may include, but is not limited to, responding to subpoenas, court orders or other legal processes (such as law enforcement requests). Lumina Host may access, preserve and share Subscriber information as necessary to: establish or exercise Lumina Host's legal rights or defend against any legal claim including threatened claims involving Lumina Host based on the anonymity of a domain name; investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected fraud or other illegal activities; prevent death or serious physical harm to any person; or investigate violations of Lumina Host's Terms of Service.

6.) Domain Registration

In certain jurisdictions or pursuant to the rules of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") or certain registries, Domain Name Registration Information has to be made available and accessible to the public through a "WHOIS" search. The WHOIS database is a publicly accessible database that lists the Domain Name Registration Information for a particular domain name, the name server(s) to which the domain name points, and the domain name's creation and expiration date. The Domain Name Registration Information you provide is hosted by Lumina Host or a third party service provider and is made available to the public through WHOIS searches. Lumina Host may deposit your Domain Name Registration Information with a third-party escrow provider to comply with ICANN requirements. At times, Subscribers may receive solicitations that result from searches of the publicly available WHOIS database by other companies or individuals. Any such solicitations or SPAM do not come from Lumina Host and Lumina Host does not control the use of WHOIS information by third parties.
