1. Types of information collected on HarpersChoice.org
There are two types of information collected on HarpersChoice.org: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information (“personal information”) is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, email address, age range, etc. Personal information is only obtained when you voluntarily provide the information to us. HCCA uses personal information to better understand your needs and interests and to provide you with better service. For example, you may be asked to voluntarily submit your email address to us when communicating with us.
Once you choose to provide us with personal information, you can be assured it will be used only to support your relationship with HCCA. We take seriously the trust you place in us and will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“non-personal information”) is information that does not identify you as an individual, such as your browser type, IP Address, the URL of the previous website you visited, etc. HCCA may automatically collect certain types of non-personal information from you when using HarpersChoice.org. We may also collect non-personal information that you voluntarily provide, such as information included in response to a questionnaire or survey.
2. Why we collect your information
HCCA’s primary purpose in collecting personal information on HarpersChoice.org is to provide you with a safe and efficient experience and to provide you with services and features that better meet your needs or requests. We only collect information that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
3. How we collect information
HCCA collects data when you provide information to us or through the use of technology that tracks your movement into, around, and out of the HCCA website.
Information Collected Through You
If you choose to order products or complete other transactions on HarpersChoice.org, we may require you to provide contact and identity information. Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. If you choose not to use a particular service or feature, you do not have to provide the contact or identity information it calls for.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Through Technology
IP Address: HarpersChoice.org may collect IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration, server problem diagnosis, and compiling aggregate information (such as how many visitors logged on to HarpersChoice.org). When you visit a particular Web page on HarpersChoice.org, our servers log your IP address. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer automatically when you use the Internet.
4. Who we share information with
We take seriously the trust you place in us and will sell, rent or lease your information to others with a carefully screened client.
HCCA employs other companies and individuals (“agents”) to perform services on behalf of HCCA, such as administering sweepstakes and contests, sending emails, providing marketing assistance, website management, and analyzing data. Such agents will have access to personal and non-personal information only as necessary to perform their services for us and are not permitted to use it for any other purpose.
HCCA may work with other companies (“partners”) to provide co-branded services or promotions. To provide a co-branded service to you, it may be necessary for us to share your personal information with our partners. The partner will only be able to use the information as necessary to perform the requested service or in aggregate form for statistical reporting.
Disclosure of personal information for legal purposes and protection of HarpersChoice.org: HarpersChoice.org reserves the right to share your personal information with third parties if we believe such action is necessary in order to: (a) conform with the requirements of the law or to comply with legal process served upon us; (b) protect or defend our legal rights or property, HarpersChoice.org or our users; or (c) investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or violations of the Terms and Conditions of using HarpersChoice.org.
5. Your choices and opting out
You will receive communications from HarpersChoice.org only if you elect to be contacted. If you do not explicitly choose to receive informational emails, the only email messages you will receive from HarpersChoice.org will be in response to email inquiries that you send us.
If you choose to receive email messages, HarpersChoice.org may periodically send you email messages describing updates, new features or promotional offers related to this website. You can choose to stop receiving this email at any time. Simply follow the instructions included in your email or send a reply stating your request.
At any time, you can “opt-out” of receiving direct mail and marketing material from HarpersChoice.org, such as product and service updates, by following the instructions included in your email or by sending a reply stating your request, and we will make the requested changes.
6. Children’s privacy
HarpersChoice.org is not intended for use by children. We encourage parents and guardians to be familiar with the websites that their children visit.
7. Keeping your information secure
The security of your personal information is very important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, HCCA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk.
