Effective Date: January 2014
For purposes of this policy, “Personal Information” means any information by which you can be personally identified, and includes your name, your address, your telephone number, your e-mail address and the like or as otherwise defined by applicable law. Most of our websites do not require that you submit Personal Information to us. There may be times (such as when you purchase or order a product or register to participate in contests, etc.) when we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, etc., and if you make a purchase, we may also maintain a record of your product purchases. In addition, our web servers may automatically recognize information regarding your domain name (or that of your access provider) and e-mail address, and we may use this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
At this time, HHG reserves the right to disclose your personal information to any third-party for its marketing purposes. As such, under California Civil Code Sections 1798.80-1798.84, California residents have the right to obtain what information and to whom the information was provided by HHG in the immediately preceding calendar year.
Therefore, upon written receipt of a written or email request for such information to the designated address below, HHG shall provide a list of any disclosures of the California resident’s personal information to any third party for their direct marketing purposes within thirty (30) days of the receipt of such request. The list shall include:
- A list of categories of personal information provided to any third party; and
- The names and addresses of all of third parties that received the California resident’s personal information for the third party’s direct marketing purposes within the preceding calendar year.
Such list may be in a standardized format and not specific to any individual.
We may choose to disclose nonpublic personal information about you, the consumer, to a third-party for compensation.
