Privacy statement and TOS, unless it's stated they won't they could...
I'd think it unlikely that a host, whether free or paid would think of taking a database and selling it. If you want top security however, you probably should have a set-up where you are more in control of the security of your databases, perhaps through a Virtual private server (VPS). And that will probably come with a price as well.Is free hosting safe, i have a number of website like forums and stuff i have hosted on free servers, what to stop the host from taking the database and selling it, any one know any safe hosts.
wow...can i know what the package they provide free?
Forum usually required u to VPS.
But most of free hosting i know is only share hosting.
Better you start with other paid hosting company , atleast they have a policy which they do not steal your database and you have the right to protect it from them .

I would personally recommend not using a free hosting provider. I do not understand how a FREE host can stay in business considering the costs associated with having a server and license fees of things like cPanel what ever they choose to use to manage their web hosting services.
You can find many web hosting packages priced at cheap prices these days. Plus you can never be sure that a free host will actually be there from day to day or keep backups of their clients files in case of a disaster.
That still does not remove the credit card requirement (most won't take WU unless there's a payments of 12 months or more, locking you to one hsot)
