We have written down this policy to cover the information that Mobihost collects through its visitors and define how this information is necessary for us to collect and what we do with it. Also, we will outline the measures through which we protect the collected information and how we consent with the relevant data protection regulatory authorities.
Under the recommended and necessary regulations, Mobihost operates as a data controller for the information that it collects from its clients. In a few cases, we also tend to operate as a data processor for the collected data.

To provide the required services
The reason that Mobihost is prone to collecting and using its visitors’s/customers ‘ data is to operate its website the better way, to dispatch the services that the buyers request, and to keep the customers posted about the products and services that Mobihost or its affiliates upgrades. But we want to state it clearly that we tend to share the collected information with the trusted third parties, whenever necessary. However, we do not engage in SELLING personal data.
You might come across a few services where you might consent to import your contact information or other relevant information over the website. In such a scenario, Mobihost will not consume this information to fulfill any of the commercial obligations, but only and only to provide the requested service.
There are a few products and services that Mobihost offers in coordination with or through trusted sponsors, partners, or affiliates. Such services are termed as ‘Third-party services’. Depending on the requested service and the third-party requirements, Mobihost might charge additional fees or might accumulate such services in the package for free or make it a part of the larger portion of service. To properly program the service bundles and the integration of the third-party services with Mobihost’s patent ones, we might share some of the necessary information with the third parties that we have facilitated with. When it comes to monetary transactions or payments, Mobihost must share the relevant information with the transaction processors. All in all, Mobihost is responsible for splitting only that piece of information that is necessary to execute our services. We do not permit third parties to collect, use, store, or share our customers’ personal data with third parties, only except for those services that they affiliate with us to provide.

In such situations, it might get necessary for Mobihost to share the collected information with new Mobihost representatives or owners or the business that Mobihost acquires. However, we will make sure to notify our customers beforehand and come up with the possible options that the customers might practice for the scrutiny of their information.

Our team most likely contacts our valuable customers through announcements, newsletters, and special offers, which we find most valuable for our clients. It all depends upon our customers to withdraw their consent from receiving these communications any time they want.
Mobihost and its trusted partners, sponsors, and affiliates are, at some times, required to process or even disclose the information that has been collected from the clients.
