The service communication e-mails are essential to our registering you for service and to our continuing provision of services to you.

On those xHost Solutions sites where you may provide xHost Solutions with credit card, electronic payment service, or other ordering information via the Web, xHost Solutions protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary Web-based security and encryption protocols, an example of which is the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, xHost Solutions will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, xHost Solutions assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.

In general, xHost Solutions gathers some generic information automatically. Generic information does not reveal the identity of the visitor. It usually includes information about the Internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors, and the xHost Solutions sites visited. xHost Solutions gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and Web site needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies including "cookies" (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about xHost Solutions services). xHost Solutions does not combine information collected in this way with any personally identifiable information. You can set your Web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it. However, refusing some cookies may make it impossible to use or navigate the xHost Solutions Web site properly.

No third party collects any information that you provide through the Live Chat system. xHost Solutions may retain and use logs of the Live Chat sessions for any of the following purposes:
