What Personal Information About Customers Does hugcollection.com Gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalise and continually improve your shopping experience at hugcollection.com. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but, then, you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future shopping for you, improving our online store, and communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many web sites, we use "cookies" and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses hugcollection.com (which are explained below). There are tools designed to help you visit web sites anonymously, although we will not be able to provide you with a personalised experience at hugcollection.com if we cannot recognise you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from hugcollection.com if your computer supports such capabilities.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Your personally identifiable information is used for our internal business purposes only. hugcollection.com does not sell, rent or lease your personal information to independent third parties except as described below. We use personally identifiable information to identify account holders, open and maintain accounts, process, service and enforce transactions, send related communications to customers and to provide customer services and support. Credit card numbers are used only for processing payments and are not used for other purposes. We may also use personally identifiable information to provide you with optional product or service updates, promotional notices and offers and other information about hugcollection.com and its products.
As stated above, hugcollection.com does not share our customer information with third parties, except as described in the next paragraph. If you receive information about our products from another company, hugcollection.com has no control over the use of their data. You will need to contact the company that delivered the email to opt out of receiving ongoing emails.
Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information
We may use third party, unaffiliated, companies to help us maintain and operate our web site or for other reasons related to the operation of our business, and those companies may receive your personally identifiable information for that purpose. Should we be required to do so, we may also disclose personally identifiable information about you in connection with a legal claim, governmental request or investigation. Further, as our business develops, we may sell or buy corporate assets, and in such transactions customer information may be shared with third parties and become one of the transferred business assets.
Changes to Your Personally Identifiable Information
You have the ability to review, change and/or correct the personally identifiable information you provide to us by contacting us either by telephone or email.
