B. Direct Communication
We also collect information if a User contacts us for support or help, or otherwise communicates with us. The information we collect enables us to customize and enhance the services we provide to the User. In addition, we may use the information the User submits to communicate with the User about our news, events, promotions and new products. Each User may opt in or opt out at any time to receiving direct notifications from us, including account updates, new messages, and billing reminders.
A cookie is a small file that asks permission to be placed on a computer’s hard drive. Once a User agrees, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets the User know when the User visits a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to each User as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to a User’s needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about the User’s preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes. After such analysis is complete, the data is removed from the system.
We may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (individually or collectively “Pixel Tags”) in connection with emails that we send to our users in order to collect usage data. We use Pixel Tags, other technologies and the information we collect to count users who have visited certain pages on our Website, to deliver branded services and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns.
Overall, cookies help us provide each User with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages the User finds useful. Cookies do not give us access to a computer or any information about a particular User, other than the data the User chooses to share with us.
A User may decline cookies, if permitted by the User’s browser, although doing so may affect the performance or ability to use certain features.
COLLECTION OF INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN
We comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, which requires us to notify and obtain consent from a parent or guardian before we collect, use and disclose the personal information of anyone under 13 years of age. Each User must be at least 18 years of age in order to use the Website. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from young people under the age of 13 without such consent and if we learn that we have inadvertently done so, we will promptly delete it.
THE WAY WE USE INFORMATION
We are the sole owners of the information collected on, from or in conjunction with the Website. We only have access to and collect the information that Users voluntarily give us by their direct contact (via the sign-up portal, Website, or email). We will not sell or rent User information to anyone. We use the information we collect to operate and improve our services, such as making new content available to Users at a later time on any device that they use to access the Website.
We use non-identifying, aggregated information to analyze the manner in which the Website is used. Such aggregated information includes the manner in which content has been accessed, saved and shared. We may use aggregated information to offer a list of top sites or content, to make recommendations to our users, to report on usage and trends, to improve the products and services that we offer, or to develop new products and services. We may also use non-identifying, non-aggregated information to deliver tailored advertisements to Users.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
In the event that The Hunt Agency, LLC or certain of our assets are acquired, user information may be included among the transferred assets.
Although we strive to protect the personal information of our users, we will release personal information if required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary. We follow the law whenever we receive requests about one or more Users from a governmental entity or related to a lawsuit. We will notify affected Users in when we are asked to disclose their personally identifiable information in this way unless we are legally prohibited from doing so. When we receive requests like this, we will only release a User’s personally identifiable information if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary or appropriate under applicable law. Nothing in this policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that a User may have to a third party’s request to disclose the User’s information.
We have adopted security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and/or unauthorized alteration of the information under our control or under the control of our service providers. Our security measures include, but are not limited to: firewalls, passwords and restricted physical access to the places where information is stored. Although we use industry standard practices to protect privacy, we do not promise, and a User should not expect, that personal information or private communications will always remain free from security issues. In the event of a security breach involving Users’ personal information, we will make any legally required disclosures in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with the legitimate interests of law enforcement, or any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
The Website may contain links to other websites. We do not have control over third party links, and each User should exercise caution and review the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
